This was a night of getting just what was needed. Terry Collins needed to give the bullpen a rest, so Bartolo Colon gave the Mets seven innings of five-hit ball. Needing to get off to a fast start, the Mets put up three quick runs in the first inning. And finally, when some insurance was needed, when it looked like the Phillies were going to creep back into it, when the Nationals...
The Mets (70-56) defeated the Philadelphia Phillies (50-77) by a score of 9-4 tonight at Citizens Bank Park. Pitching: Bartolo Colon got the start for the Amazin’s tonight, and pitched very well, going seven strong innings, allowing zero earned runs on five hits while striking out eight and walking just two. Eric O’Flaherty relieved Colon […]
PHILADELPHIA (AP) Bartolo Colon tossed five-hit ball and struck out eight in seven sharp innings, Michael Cuddyer hit a long homer and the NL East-leading New York Mets beat the Philadelphia Phillies 9-4 on Wednesday night. Colon (11-11) bounced back from a rough outing in Colorado, helping the Mets improve to 18-6 since July 31. They took a 6 1-2 game lead over second-place Washington...

Friday night was an example of how far away the Colorado Rockies are from being successful. Their greatest hope for the future, Jon Gray, was lit up by the first-place New York Mets. His night was over before the 2nd inning was completed and the Mets were on their way. When Gray left the game, the Rockies were down 7-1. At Coors Field, however, no lead is truly safe, especially...
In the Coorsiest Game Ever Played, The Mets (65-56) outslugged the Rockies (49-71) en route to a 14-9 win in the series opener, stretching their NL East lead to 5 games. Bartolo Colon struggled on the mound, allowing 7 runs on 9 hits and 2 walks in 3.2 innings, striking out 1 and serving […]

The New York Mets head for high ground in Denver tonight, for the start of a weekend series with the Colorado Rockies at Coors Field. Bartolo Colon (10-11, 4.58) opposes rookie right-hander Jon Gray (0-0, 2.40) in Friday’s 8:40 PM series opener. The Mets have won eight straight games vs. Colorado dating back to May […]
The New York Mets are stumbling since sweeping their latest series with Colorado. They'll try to begin work on another as they go for a ninth straight win over the Rockies on Friday night. New York (64-56) capped a four-game sweep of Colorado (49-70) with a 12-3 victory Aug. 13, winning for the 11th time in 13 games. That stretch propelled the Mets into the NL East lead. They have...
The problem with the Mets skipping Matt Harvey or Noah Syndergaard for a start or two in September, is that by the end of the month they might need those games. That’s why having a definitive plan entering the season was the way to go, but GM Sandy Alderson was too smart for that and Harvey was too stubborn. Getting their starts will be Steven Matz and Logan Verrett. And, hopefully...
There is nothing quite like a tough road game, deadlocked in the late innings, with the threat of a walk-off always looming, in a hostile ballpark….that ends in a win. It hasn’t happened often enough for the Pirates in those situations, so when it does, I’ve really come to appreciate it. Thrilling walk off wins at home are awesome, of course, and they are obviously more fun...
The Mets (63-53) were defeated by the Pittsburgh Pirates (67-46) by a score of 3-2 tonight at Citi Field. Pitching: The Pirates jumped out in front early on, as Neil Walker hit a solo home run off Bartolo Colon in the first inning. Colon regained his composure immediately, however, as the big righty pitched a […]

Boasting a 4.5 game lead atop the National League East, the New York Mets now host the Pittsburgh Pirates for a weekend series at Citi Field. Bartolo Colon (10-11, 4.76) opposes left-hander J.A. Happ (0-1, 8.31) in Friday’s 7:10 PM series opener. The Mets are a season-high 11 games over .500 (63-52) for the first […]
Entering today, the New York Mets lead the NL East by 1.5 games over the Washington Nationals. There’s no telling who will come out on top at the end of this season, but we’re seeing a validation of the Mets sterling rotation. Matt Harvey, Jacob deGrom, and Noah “Thor” Syndergaard, along with the ageless Bartolo Colon, have brought the Mets back to relevance. And with Zack...
The Trading Deadline has come and gone and Sandy Alderson has looked like a hero bringing in both help for the offense and for the bullpen. He has always been just a touch slower in his approach to the active roster though, so now is the time for him to continue his drive towards October baseball. Sending Eric Campbell down instead of Michael Conforto was a nice first step, but more...
ST. PETERSBURG, FL – AUGUST 9: Bartolo Colon #40 of the New York Mets pitches during the first inning of a game against the Tampa Bay Rays on August 9, 2015 at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Florida. (Photo by Brian Blanco/Getty Images) The story of the New York Mets this season has been excellent pitching being stymied by no offense. Additions via trade gave them a necessary...
During the Mets 4-3 loss to Tampa Bay, Bartolo Colon allowed four runs and nine hits in 6.2 innings. He surrendered the go-ahead home run to Rays’ rookie Richie Shaffer in the 7th inning, which put Tampa up for good. The loss was Colon’s 11th of the season and New York’s second in a row […]
While you can’t win them all, that was a little discouraging. Bartolo Colon was not sharp, again. He has alternated good and bad starts since July 7th, and even though he didn’t get pounded, it was just enough out of the reach of the Mets offense. Speaking of that offense, the last six batters in the lineup had a collective one hit and three walks. Yesterday the remaining five...
In last week's Two Start Pitchers post I, to the surprise of many, included one Bartolo Colon ($7,400) among the top starting options of the week. Looking down the schedule at his two opponents it was difficult to ignore the opportunity regardless of how poor the old butterball had been pitching. It paid off earlier in the week as Colon pitched a solid 8 innings of one run ball scattering...
The New York Mets and the Tampa Bay Rays will hook up to play a rubber match this afternoon at Tropicana Field after splitting the first two games of the series. Bartolo Colon (10-10, 4.72) will try to clinch a series win for the Mets and he opposes right-hander Chris Archer (10-8, 2.54) for the […]
All good things must come to an end. The seven-game win streak came to an end tonight as the Rays defeated the Mets 5-4. Noah Syndergaard struggled tonight as he went four innings and gave up five runs. The first inning was brutal for the young pitcher, as four runs came across. Curtis Granderson continues to have an impressive 2015 campaign as he hit two homers in the first two...
The Mets blew the Marlins out of the water early on, as the offense provided plenty of runs for Bartolo Colon, and the veteran earned his 10th win of the season. Michael Conforto hit his first major league homer, which provided three runs in the second inning. Batting Conforto eighth should enable him to get some opportunities to drive in runs, and he took advantage of the situation...
