MLB: New York Mets at Atlanta Braves

Mets Make Mistakes, But Outlast Braves in 12

It wasn’t necessarily pretty, but the Mets persevered through a 12-inning marathon Friday night to top the Braves 5-3 and even their weekend series at Sun Trust Park. The game started with a bang for Atlanta, as after their starter Sean Newcomb tossed a scoreless first inning, second baseman Ozzie Albies greeted Mets ace Noah […]

MLB: New York Mets at Miami Marlins

Game recap April 11: I don’t know what’s happening, but I like it

The New York Mets are the best team in baseball. With their 4-1 victory over the Marlins last night, they are tied with the Angels for the most wins in the league with 10, though the fighting Mike Trouts are 10-3, while New York is 10-1. So that means the Mets have a better winning percentage, which means […]

MLB: New York Mets at Miami Marlins

Game recap April 10: This team just doesn’t know how to lose

Primer Times are good in Mets land. Panic City is a ghost town, as the Mets have jumped out to an incredible start, running the best record in baseball and tying a club record for best start to a season. The good times were set to keep rolling, with Jacob deGrom taking the mound against […]

Alternate Reality

Staff Post: Mets Alternate Realities

The 2017 Mets were set in the darkest timeline. No Mets squad won fewer than last year’s 70 since the first year of the otherwise-forgettable Art Howe era in 2003. The only player who didn’t get hurt was a prodigal son who returned to the team but felt little remorse for his faults. The manager […]

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: St. Louis Cardinals at New York Mets

Game recap April 1: Sunday blues

Primer After Noah Syndergaard was brilliant (don’t let two juiced ball homers obscure a fantastic Opening Day start) and Jacob deGrom battled his way into a solid start in Game two, the Mets found themselves with a 2-0 record atop the NL East. Steven Matz took the mound opposite Cardinals 2017 breakout pitcher Luke Weaver, […]

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: Milwaukee Brewers at Miami Marlins

Marlins Series Preview September 18-20

Winners of two in a row after dropping five straight, the Mets visit South Beach for the final time this year to face a reeling club that has won just three of its last twenty games. The Marlins return for the first time in almost two weeks, forced to play three “home” games in Milwaukee […]

MLB: New York Mets at Washington Nationals

Game recap August 26: TKO

Part of why we love baseball is the feeling that we can’t fully predict anything. Then there are games like Saturday, where the outcome felt like it was decided in the first inning. Asdrubal Cabrera got bad coaching and was easily thrown out at home. Robert Gsellman and Amed Rosario’s mistakes in the field led […]
