MLB: Washington Nationals at Colorado Rockies

Nationals series preview April 28-30

Panic City is in full effect. Not only did the Mets drop their sixth game in a row against the lowly Atlanta Braves, but the status of their two biggest star remains in question.

MLB: Philadelphia Phillies at New York Mets

Game recap April 20: Everybody hurts sometimes

WHO WON: The red and gray not-Mets WHAT HAPPENED, A ROUGH START: The Mets looked great on the defensive end in the first inning. They looked great, but that’s probably because Noah Syndergaard struck out the side. What about when baseballs were put in play? Well, that’s another story. Things started to unravel in the […]

MLB: Philadelphia Phillies at New York Mets

Game Recap April 19: A Mea Culpa to Jay Bruce

Jay Bruce for Dilson Herrera was a bad trade. It made me angry when it happened. When Bruce came up for his first at-bat in Citi Field and got a standing ovation, I was wondering why anyone was even a little happy to see him in a Mets uniform. How Bruce played over the next […]

MLB: New York Mets at Miami Marlins

Game recap April 16: Get us out of Miami

Marlins 4, Mets 2 The Mets showed flashes of competence, but ultimately just ran out of gas, losing the last three games against Miami; this one culminated in a heartbreaking walk-off surrendered by Addison Reed to Miami rookie JT Riddle, who hit his first major league home run in style. The ending was a particularly […]

MLB: New York Mets at Miami Marlins

Game Recap April 14: No Rest for the Weary

Mets News Entering last night’s game, the first-place Mets had won five in a row. I’d say the Mets were “fresh off their fifth straight victory,” but nobody was fresh after Thursday’s five-hour-and-thirty-eight-minute, 16-inning affair. Except Sean Gilmartin. He was recalled from Las Vegas today to bolster a bullpen that had thrown 18 innings over the past […]

MLB: New York Mets at Miami Marlins

Game recap April 13: Eventually, theoretically, someone has to win

Mets 9, Marlins 8, 16 innings I don’t know if you remember Xan Brooks’ epic Wimbledon liveblog in 2010, when the internet watched a writer lose their mind in real time. I thought it was hilarious, an epic virtuoso performance. I’m not in any way comparing my responsibilities to that, but having waited for this […]

MLB: Miami Marlins at New York Mets

Game recap April 7: Some hope, then some rust

Primer Nearly any Mets fan perusing these pages likely remembers that amazing doubleheader in 2013 when Matt Harvey and Zack Wheeler teamed up to give a terrible Mets team a glimpse of hope. Friday night was a throwback, with Wheeler making his first start in two years the night after Matt Harvey made a solid […]

MLB: Atlanta Braves at New York Mets

Game recap April 6: Dread, then Sunlight, then (possible) Dread

Mets fans live to dread, and the weather in New York provided the perfect backdrop—with gray skies and ominous thunder rolling in the distance—either for the climactic scene of a gothic novel or the return of Matt Harvey to the mound—Willets’ very own Heathcliff. As the Mets have worked their way through this high-ceiling rotation […]
