‘Old soul’ Michael Conforto impressing veteran teammate

Austin Jackson has only been Michael Conforto’s teammate for a little over two weeks, but the 25-year-old has already made a strong impression. “He has an old soul,’’ Jackson said before Conforto homered in the Mets’ 8-5 win over the Yankees on Monday in The Bronx. “He seems a lot older than his age —...

Final Score: Mets 8, Yankees 5 — deGrom and dingers

A beat down in the Boogie Down. This evening, the Mets defeated the Yankees in the rescheduled final game of their season series, 8-5 at Yankee Stadium. It was supposed to be a pitcher’s duel between Jacob deGrom and Luis Severino, but early offense from the Mets put the game more or less out of reach early on. The home run was the play of the night, with the Mets socking five over the first seven innings. Amed Rosario, Jose Bautista, Todd Frazier, Brandon Nimmo, and Michael Conforto all hit home runs, with Jeff McNeil driving in the only two non-dinger runs of the game for the Mets....

Creative Jay Bruce trades that could solve multiple Mets problems

Part of the Mets’ many tasks to gain credibility and perhaps contention is to unclutter their corner-outfield glut, so among other things Michael Conforto and Brandon Nimmo cease playing center field. The Mets say they are built around their rotation, but those are just more hollow words until they prioritize defense. Their best future team...

Player Meter: Position players, August 6-12

A quick review of how the Mets’ position players fared over the past week. The Mets won two series in a row this week for the first time since April. Granted, it was against less than stellar competition. However, the offense averaged 4.67 runs per game over the past six games, well above their average clip for the season, which is an encouraging sign. Austin Jackson continues to be the Mets’ hottest hitter, posting a 206 wRC+ for the week. He leads the team in both hits with nine and RBIs with five. Along with Michael Conforto, he also leads the team in WAR, putting up...

Mistakes doom Mets in walk-off loss

They had a chance to win, but some costly mistakes eventually changed the outcome. It took eleven innings, but the Mets eventually lost to the Marlins 4-3 on a walk-off double by Bryan Holaday. The Marlins were not perfect, but as the game went on, they thoroughly outplayed the Mets which led to their victory. At first it seemed to be coming up Mets in the fourth when left fielder Rafael Ortega made a beautiful catch that he eventually dropped when he hit the wall in left. That gave Wilmer Flores a double and Michael Conforto followed with a walk. Up next was Brandon Nimmo...

Final Score: Marlins 4, Mets 3-When it Rhames it pours

The Marlins walked it off in extras. The bullpen had been holding down the fort until Jacob Rhame entered and the Marlins walked in off in the eleventh by a final score of 4-3. The Mets originally held a lead early but mistakes doomed both sides in this one. The road team scored three runs in the fourth after Rafael Ortega dropped Wilmer Flores’s double. Michael Conforto followed with a walk and then a missed strike three call that went for ball four to Brandon Nimmo allowed him to reach base. That seemed to unravel Dan Straily who gave up a bases-clearing double to Todd Frazier to give...
