Vargas shelled at Coors Field as Mets’ brief winning streak ends

The long balls were flying against Mets pitching. After a lengthy rain delay, the Mets probably would have been better served if their Tuesday night game had gotten rained out. The play was sloppy from the beginning, and the Rockies took full advantage to win 10-8. Brandon Nimmo got the Mets on the board early when he singled to lead off the game. Asdrubal Cabrera followed with a lucky pop fly single and the Mets had runners on with nobody out. Nimmo then tagged up twice on fly balls by Michael Conforto and Todd Frazier to score the game’s first run. The Mets’ and...

Demote this—Conforto drives in four in Mets victory

Mets “explode” for five runs in victory over Diamondbacks. As the Mets’ offensive malaise has deepened, many a finger has been pointed—more than a few at the team’s lone 2017 all-star, Michael Conforto. After coming back a bit earlier than expected in 2018 from shoulder surgery, Conforto has struggled to regain his 2017 form. Struggled less than others in the lineup, as his .150 ISO this year would indicate, but that hasn’t stopped some whispers from a leaky front office that Conforto could be demoted to AAA if his struggles continued. Last night, Conforto drove in four of the...
