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: New York Mets at Washington Nationals

Game recap April 5: This is so crazy, it just might work

Mets 8, Nationals 2, Final Taking walks, hitting long balls, gutsy pitching and a solid bullpen all converged to see the Mets ruin the home opener of division rivals Washington. If you squint, tilt your head, and forget about last year, you can start to believe again. Series like these with powerhouse teams are the […]

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 […]

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.

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: St. Louis Cardinals at New York Mets

Game recap March 29: We’re back, baby

Mets 9, Cardinals 4, final As our intrepid leader said, we survived the winter. But like the overcast, chilly weather, Opening Day started on a somber note with the news that Mets legend Rusty Staub had passed away. Even without the loss of a good man, few fanbases move through the season with equal parts […]

MLB: New York Mets at Washington Nationals

Game recap August 26: RIP Cespedes

The Mets had already scored once in the top of the first when Dom Smith singled off pitcher A.J. Cole’s glove. Yoenis Cespedes tried to turn on the jets to score the Mets’ second run. In another cruel twist for 2017, Cespedes immediately started limping. He hopped his way to home plate, but it didn’t […]

MLB: Arizona Diamondbacks at New York Mets

Game recap August 21: Pollock-ed

It’s been a whirlwind of a week for those following the orange and blue. First, we said goodbye to Curtis Granderson, who was shipped off to the Los Angeles Dodgers in exchange for right-handed reliever Jacob Rhame. Granderson was not only a key component in the success this team has found over the last few […]
