Mets’ bullpen did everything it could to blow it again

The closest thing the Mets have had to a reliable bullpen option these last few weeks nearly became their downfall. And, for the second game in three, so did Edwin Diaz. But somehow, some way, Seth Lugo escaped a bases-loaded eighth inning without giving up a run. Somehow, some way, Diaz escaped a ninth inning...

Jeurys Familia’s meltdown in the eighth caps off another nightmare for the Mets bullpen

Jeurys Familia’s meltdown in the eighth caps off another nightmare for the Mets bullpen

The Mets lost two games in one day at the hands of the bullpen. The day after Edwin Diaz blew a two-run lead in the ninth inning, he came back out and gave up a run in the tenth inning and the Mets lost Thursday’s suspended game to the Cardinals 5-4. The Mets then played their regularly scheduled game and lost that one as well—also thanks to another blown lead in the late innings—by a score of 9-5. The Mets struck early against Daniel Ponce de Leon, who had trouble throwing strikes most of the evening. In the bottom of the first, he issued two straight two-out walks and then Todd...

Second chance was as bad as the first for Mets’ closer

Less than 24 hours later, it didn’t get any better for Edwin Diaz. After blowing a two-run lead in the top of the ninth inning Thursday night in a game that was subsequently suspended, the Mets’ closer doubled down on the damage and gave up the go-ahead run in the top of the 10th after...

For Mets, there’s no relief in sight — literally and figuratively

First Edwin Diaz faced the music, as Jeurys Familia waited nearby at his locker. Then it was Familia’s turn. Batter up. “I think for any athlete, sometimes they do have bad seasons,” Familia said through a translator after goating a demoralizing 9-5 loss to the Cardinals. “And for me at this point, it hasn’t been...

Pete Alonso doubles down on ‘hurtful’ tweet reply, push to play

Pete Alonso played better defense than the rest of the Mets on Friday night. His defense just happened to initially come on Twitter. The first baseman fought back against the idea that his lobbying to keep Thursday’s game going through the rain led to the Mets’ 5-4 loss, which was completed Friday. Edwin Diaz ended...

Final Score — Cardinals 5, Mets 4 — Rain Dismay

Final Score — Cardinals 5, Mets 4 — Rain Dismay

Edwin Diaz and a lot of rain help hand the Mets a loss in the first of two games today. Like many Jacob deGrom starts before this, a solid start from the ace was spoiled by the bullpen and some extenuating circumstances which ultimately ended up being a 5-4 Mets loss. On the offensive side of things, the Mets’ night was a tale of highs and lows, with almost all of their production taking place during the third and sixth innings with little action between. Jeff McNeil singled in the third before Michael Conforto brought them both home on a two-run dinger. Later, in the sixth, Dominic...

Mets closer Edwin Diaz is not the unhittable force we expected

New York Mets closer Edwin Diaz has been disappointing this year. When compared to other men with the same job title, he looks even more ineffective. After a season where he saved 57 games for the Seattle Mariners, held batters to a .160 batting average, and finished the season with a 0.79 WHIP, New York […] Mets closer Edwin Diaz is not the unhittable force we expected - Rising Apple - Rising Apple - A New York Mets Blog Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More
