Final Score: Mets 7, Yankees 5—500K

Yoenis Cespedes hit a home run in his return from the disabled list and Syndergaard limited the damage while reaching a milestone. The Mets jumped on Domingo German for three early runs in the first inning. Brandon Nimmo started the rally with a walk and then Asdrubal Cabrera, Michael Conforto, and Jose Bautista all doubled to put the Mets up 3-0. In his second at-bat back from the disabled list, Yoenis Cespedes added to that lead with a solo homer that dinged off the left field foul pole. Noah Syndergaard managed to weave around traffic during his entire outing. He scattered eight hits...

A look at Brandon Nimmo’s first half

A look at Brandon Nimmo’s first half

Brandon Nimmo is one of the best things about the 2018 Mets, and it seems as though it is fueled by a few key changes. One of the only highlights of the Mets’ season thus far has been Brandon Nimmo. While the offense often struggled to do much of anything after the team’s 11-1 start, Nimmo has a .253/.373/.490 line at the break. That is good for a 139 wRC+ and 2.5 fWAR, leading the Mets in both categories. Nimmo has been a pleasant surprise for the fans and something the Mets front office clearly did not foresee coming into the season. He started the season fighting for playing time, as...

Mets: Brandon Nimmo must avoid the same pitfalls as Michael Conforto

New York Mets outfielder Brandon Nimmo is a star in the making. Hopefully, he doesn’t experience the same slump Michael Conforto did a year after doing the same. There’s an argument that can be made saying New York Mets outfielder Brandon Nimmo belonged in the 2018 All-Star Game. As homerish as it is, the argument […] Mets: Brandon Nimmo must avoid the same pitfalls as Michael Conforto - Rising Apple - Rising Apple - A New York Mets Blog Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Brandon Nimmo should have been an All-Star

Brandon Nimmo should have been an All-Star

The Mets’ affable young outfielder deserved to take part in the game this year. When it comes to baseball takes, saying that a certain player was snubbed for the All-Star Game is somewhat of a tired act. Having said that, Brandon Nimmo was absolutely snubbed for this year’s All-Star Game and deserved to take part in the festivities. While Nimmo has slowed down a bit with his production at the plate in recent weeks, he’s hit .253/.373/.490 with 13 home runs and a 139 wRC+ in 311 plate appearances this year. Among qualified outfielders in all of baseball, that wRC+ is the seventh-best...

Mets 7, Nationals 4—Wheels Up

Zack Wheeler pitches 7.2 solid innings to lead Mets to victory over Nationals. The Mets got to Nationals starter Austin Voth early in his major league debut, stringing together four straight singles to start the bottom of the second, the last of which by Amed Rosario plated the first run of the game. Zack Wheeler and Brandon Nimmo followed with a pair of productive outs—Wheeler’s a sacrifice fly to deep left-center—to stake the Mets to an early 3-0 lead. Wheeler kept the Nationals off the scoreboard through five, when the Mets got to Voth again in the bottom of the frame. After Voth...

Mets Series Preview: Mets face Nationals for final series of first half

The NL East division rivals face off for the first time in nearly three months. The New York Mets (37-53) conclude a rough first half of the 2018 season with a four-game set with the Washington Nationals (46-46), who have been on a downswing of their own, losing 17 of their last 25 games. Winning three games this home stand via walk-off homers from Jose Bautista, the undisputed Mets walk-off king Wilmer Flores, and Brandon Nimmo, the Mets head into this series with the Nationals in a very different place than the last time the two teams met in Queens on April 18. Back then, the Mets were...
