MLB: New York Mets at Cincinnati Reds

The financially restricted Mets are getting nothing out of their most expensive assets

The New York Mets have not been spending big-time money over the past decade. While this news will come as a surprise to no one, it reinforces the fact that the money this franchise does spend is all-the-more important. As the Mets continue to struggle this season—they sport a 16-26 record over their last 42 games […]

MLB: New York Mets at Cincinnati Reds

Game recap May 7: That’s what winning looks like

Boy did the Mets need that one. Entering last night, the team was in a pretty noticeable tailspin, dropping all six games of last week’s homestand. On Monday, they resembled the explosive team we had the privilege of watching during the first few weeks of the season. New York rebounded in Cincinnati, defeating the Reds […]

MLB: Colorado Rockies at New York Mets

Game recap May 6: The Ian Desmond Game

WHO WON: The Ian Desmond-led Colorado Rockies WHAT HAPPENED, NOAH SYNDERGAARD DID NOT HAVE A NICE START: The easiest thing to do is to start with the negative. Sept. 7, 2016 was the last time Noah Syndergaard issued four free-passes in one start. In fact, over 68 career big league starts, Syndergaard had walked four […]

MLB: Colorado Rockies at New York Mets

Game recap May 5: Are we there yet?

In what’s already been a tumultuous week for the Mets and their fanbase, it feels as if Saturday night’s 2-0 loss to Colorado may actually be rock bottom. The loss was the fifth straight for the Mets and marked the third time in four games the offense has failed to score a run. The Mets […]

MLB: Colorado Rockies at New York Mets

Game recap May 4: Close, but no success

The Mets showed fight Friday night, but when it was all said and done the end result was the same as it’s been all week: walking off the field following a loss. New York’s weekend series with the Rockies could not have possibly begun any worse, with Zack Wheeler placing the Mets in an immediate deep […]

MLB: Atlanta Braves at New York Mets

Game recap May 1: Welcome to the new dynasty

Primer Meet the Mets, same as the old Mets. Yoenis Cespedes was supposed to miss three days with a jammed thumb, instead he’s in the lineup after the team decided he didn’t even need an MRI. When have we heard that story before I wonder? Steven Matz also said he was fine, then was announced […]

MLB: New York Mets at St. Louis Cardinals

Game recap April 26: Not with a bang, but with a blown save

Cardinals 4, Mets 3, final The cliché that baseball is a game of inches was never more true as the Mets came within a few of them of escaping St. Louis with a win Thursday. As the baseball hit off Jose Martinez’ bat eluded Juan Lagares’ glove in deep center field in the bottom of the […]

MLB: New York Mets at St. Louis Cardinals

Game recap April 24: They’re saying Bruuuuuuuuuce

Primer Rain mercifully cut short the Mets’ time in Atlanta, saving our ears and our sanity from any more Tomahawk Chops until [checks schedule] ugh, late May. Instead, the team headed off to St. Louis to face the less-auditory-but-still-rage-inducing Cardinals with Luke Weaver on the mound. Zack Wheeler took the hill for the Mets, and […]
