Game Preview: Mets @ Cardinals

The Mets head off for a road trip tonight to St. Louis to take on the Cardinals tonight. Yesterday they picked up the win after needing the bullpen to pitch 8 innings with Daisuke leaving after the first due to illness. The bullpen held it together and the offense was able to scratch out three runs for a victory. Jacob deGrom will get the start tonight as he goes up against Carlos...

Game Preview: Padres vs Mets

The Mets try to figure things out as the Padres come to town tonight. Last night the Mets lost the rubber game against the Brew Crew after sending the game to the 13th inning on a 1-1 tie. There is only so much you can ask of the bullpen without run support and in the top of the 13th they allowed 4 runs and the Mets could never recover. Tonight Colon takes a turn at the helm as he...

Game Preview: Brewers vs Mets

The Mets come home after a rough road trip. The road trip started off in Philly and they did great winning 4-1 games, but then they lost three in a row in Chicago, and then three in a row again in San Francisco.

Game Preview: Mets @ Giants

The Mets followed their 4-1 trip to Philly with an 0-3 trip to the struggling Cubs, essentially erasing everything they did in Philly. The Mets have no time to lament as they head to San Francisco to face the league leading Giants. Tonight Niese will get the start against Matt Cain. Niese is 3-3 this season over 11 games and 70.1 innings with a 2.69 ERA. His last start against Philly...

Game Preview: Mets @ Cubs

The Mets month on the road continues tonight as the Mets start a series in Wrigley. The last five games were a marathon for the Mets who played the rare five game set in Philly, playing over 57 innings and winning four games. Now the Mets find themselves one game below .500 and 3.5 games out of first. It is actually who amazing about how this time last week things were looking bleakâ...

Game Preview: Mets @ Phillies

The Mets start a very unique series tonight as they play their first of five games in Philly. Originally a four game set, the Mets and Phillies were rained out of a game in a two game set earlier in the year creating this 5 day series in Philly. The first of this playoff length (NLDS) series of games will have Zack Wheeler facing off against David Buchanan. Wheeler is 1-5 on the...

Game Preview: Pirates vs Mets

The Mets split the doubleheader yesterday and head into a series with the Pirates today. In the first game yesterday, Montero diced up the Diamondbacks lineup but the offense couldn’t get into the game and the Mets lost in a frustrating way. In the later afternoon game, the Mets were able to pull out a win and will hopefully build off of that today with the Pirates and Ike Davis...

Game Preview: Diamondbacks vs Mets

The Mets finally snapped their losing streak last night against the Dodgers in one of the more bizarre games played in Citi Field that included career highlight reel catches for Puig and Campbell … and just awful baserunning and a clear not understanding of baseball rules. The Mets look to build off this as the Diamondbacks come to to town today with Colon on the mound as he takes...

Game Preview: Dodgers vs Mets

The Dodgers come to Citi Field tonight as the Mets still try to figure out a way to get on the right track in May. Over the weekend they lost 2 of 3 to the Nationals where in the two games they lost, they made some key mistakes. Anyway, tonight Montero gets his second start of the career against Beckett. Montero allowed 3 ER over 5 hits while throwing 6.0 innings. The long ball was...

Game Preview: Mets @ Nationals

The Mets split the season series with the Yankees after dropping yesterday’s game, but look to get back on the right track tonight in DC against the Nationals. Jacob deGrom made his debut last night and he was great allowing only one run but the Mets bats couldn’t get anything going. The last time the Mets played the Nationals was the season opener, where the Nationals swept...

Game Preview: Yankees vs Mets

The Mets look to take the Subways Series tonight as they finish of the four game set with the last game of the Queens leg. Yesterday Tanaka was on point and it was one of those days you need to tip your cap to the opposing pitcher. The Mets made some mistakes but Tanaka rained on Montero’s debut parade. Today is one of those rare days were both starting pitching are making their...

Game Preview: Yankees @ Mets

The Mets swept the Bronx leg of the Subways Series last night and now bring it back to Queens tonight. For the second straight game, the starting pitching, and just pitching in general, was off so the responsibility to win fell to the Mets bats who for the second straight game woke up. The challenge for the Mets will be making that happen routinely in ball parks that are not Yankee...

Uniform Change: White Sox Wear Pink Caps

The White Sox on Saturday wore pink hats for Breast Cancer Awareness. In recent years, Mother’s Day in the MLB has turned into pink equipment day for Breast Cancer awareness starting with bats and moving to cleats and gloves over time. No one has worn pink hats before because turning the hat pink is now really a uniform change. The question becomes is this a test run for a league...

It’s Subway Series time! The Mets and Yankees play their first of four games tonight as they continue for a second year the new split series format that has two games in one borough directly followed by two games in the other.

Game Preview: Phillies vs Mets

The Mets try to get back in a winning pattern and back to .500 tonight as they welcome the Phillies into Queens. It was a tough three days in Miami that saw the Mets lose two games in a walk-off fashion and one where Alavrez, the Marlins starter, just ripped through the Mets lineup. The Mets do look slightly different today as Omar has been DFA’s and Wilmer Flores has been called...

Game Preview: Mets @ Marlins

The Mets were able to escape Denver with a win and now head into Miami two games above .500 in an incredibly close NL East. The Marlins continued their stark home / away split since playing the Mets earlier in the season sweeping the Braves at home and taking the series from the Dodgers. This led to the Braves actually accusing the Marlins of stealing signs because of the home and...

The Mets escaped the rain last night with a postponed game and accomplished the rare one game sweep of the Phillies. Anyway, the Mets head off to the Mile High city to start a set with the Rockies tonight as they look to keep their winning ways alive. Bartolo Colon gets the start today as he squares off against Juan Nicasio. Colon is 2-3 on the season over five starts with a 4.50...

Travis d’Arnaud Has Played Better Than His Numbers Suggest

Well the title is misleading. It’s not that the numbers hiding something, it is more that the opening to the season was quite rough. Travis didn’t get a hit until game 7 on the season. His numbers on the season are .219 BA, .306 OBP, .313 SLG and .618 OPS. However, let’s do the unfair thing and truncate the start of the season, starting the season with the two hit game against...

Game Preview: Mets @ Phillies

The Mets look to stay strong from the homestand with their first trip to the sandbox that is Citizen’s Bank Park this year (hey! Maybe Curtis will have better luck!). Anyway, the Mets responded to Saturday’s disappointing game by a strong game on Sunday featuring some awesome pitching by Dillon Gee. Tonight Jon Niese looks to continue the trend as he faces off with Cole Hamels...

Has Duda Been Better Since the Davis Trade?

Since the Mets traded Ike Davis, Lucas Duda has actually stepped into the role of starting first basemen. He was ready from the start of the season to be in this role, but Terry, even when saying he was going to go with Duda, kept putting Ike in the lineup (plus there is the whole platoon thing with Satin). It certainly feels that Duda has been better, but has he? Let’s take a...

The Mets To End April With A Winning Record

With today’s win against the Marlins, the Mets improved to 14-11 on the season. They play two games in Philly on Tuesday and Wednesday and it will be May, so they will end the month at the worst with a 14-13 record, which is a winning record. You would think that this would not happen to often in recent years but it has: 2013: 10-15 2012: 13-10 2011: 11-16 2010: 14-9 2009: 9-12...

Only three games left on the 10 game homestand! The Mets played well and took 3 of 4 games from the Cardinals this week to go into the weekend two games above .500 and now the Marlins come to town. There are a few notable similarities between the two teams. First, as of late, the Mets and Marlins have been playing well. Second, the Mets struggle at home. The Marlins struggle on the...
