MLB: Spring Training-Houston Astros at Miami Marlins

BP Mets Unfiltered: With d’Arnaud out, Mets should think creatively behind the plate

On Wednesday, breaking a shocking streak of good news, the Mets announced catcher Travis d’Arnaud has been diagnosed with a partially torn UCL, the ligament often referenced in correlation with Tommy John Surgery. On the surface, as much as I hate to say it, I’m not entirely surprised by this development. When the Mets acquired […]

MLB: New York Mets at Miami Marlins

Game recap April 9: Is this too good to be true?

After the New York Mets defeated the Miami Marlins 4-2 Monday night, a tweet by The Ringer’s Sean Fennessey caught my eye and summed up exactly how I was feeling. “This Mets season feels so good already, which likely means it will go bad in fantastic, operatic fashion. Like ‘Team plane flies into an alternate […]

MLB: New York Mets at Washington Nationals

Game recap April 7: Don’t look now, but Mets off to best start since 2006

After a less than stellar debut outing that resulted in the Mets’ only loss of the season thus far, Steven Matz returned to the mound Saturday looking like a man with something to prove. The Mets sent Matz out to face Nationals left-hander Gio Gonzalez, who’s enjoyed a great deal of success against the Mets […]

MLB: Philadelphia Phillies at New York Mets

Game recap April 4: Is Facebook cool again?

I created my Facebook account in 2010, when it was the place where all the cool kids were; I could log in and see what all my friends were up to and what pages they were “becoming a fan” of and what their status updates were. Kids and adolescents could legitimately spend hours a day on Facebook […]

MLB: Philadelphia Phillies at New York Mets

Game recap April 3: It’s raining, it’s Reyes, the man at short is…bad at baseball

Primer It may not have been snowing, but the weather certainly wasn’t pleasant as the Mets got set to play the Phillies for the first time this season. Matt Harvey took the mound in 40 degree weather with a fine mist coming done, as the rest of New York wistfully wished for spring to just hurry […]

MLB: St. Louis Cardinals at New York Mets

Game recap March 31: The injury bug is back

Mets 6, Cardinals 2, final Thursday’s Opening Day win went about as well as Mickey Callaway could’ve hoped for: a dominant start by Noah Syndergaard, an offense that produced nine runs on twelve hits, and no injuries to report. The win reaffirmed the line of thinking held by Met fans all throughout the offseason; keep […]

MLB: Spring Training-New York Mets at Houston Astros

What we’re not talking about: spring training stories that deserve a second look

Spring training is in full swing for the New York Mets and while everyone’s attention has seemingly been on Mickey Callaway’s inaugural season as manager, Hansel Robles getting shelled and the unwarranted smear campaign of Yoenis Cespedes — don’t get me started on that last one — there are plenty of things going on in camp that […]

MLB: Atlanta Braves at New York Mets

Game recap September 27: Only three more of these to go

One week ago today, I set a trend. I had just finished writing a recap of a game I didn’t particularly care about, and was looking forward to the thought of not having to push myself through recaps of meaningless, monotonous games anymore (at least until next year). The games are boring, and they don’t mean […]

MLB: Washington Nationals at New York Mets

Game recap September 25: Only five more of these to go

With less than one week remaining, we can finally say goodbye and good riddance to the season. The 2017 campaign left Mets fans with nothing but frustration, despair, and kept everyone wondering if it was really possible for things to get worse. Ravaged by injuries, we were deprived of the opportunity to watch a Mets team […]
