Attention will soon turn to personal accomplishments for struggling Mets team

SAN FRANCISCO — Pretty soon the Mets season will revolve around personal accolades rather than team triumphs. A young player already familiar with shattering Mets records said it best. “We dug ourselves in a hole and we need to win, it’s as simple as that,” Pete Alonso said on Thursday night following...

Mets Morning News for July 19, 2019

Kelley L Cox-USA TODAY Sports Your Friday morning dose of New York Mets and MLB news, notes, and links Meet the Mets While you were sleeping you missed sixteen innings of offensive futility from the Mets. They had their chances but could never break through. They finally did in the sixteenth inning when Pete Alonso’s thirty-second blast of the season briefly gave them the lead. By then it was too late and they were out of pitchers so Chris Mazza was the last one standing and the Giants walked it off in the bottom of the inning.

Final Score: Giants 3, Mets 2 — The Tenth Circle

Photo by Daniel Shirey/MLB Photos via The Mets wasted sixteen innings and nearly five hours on their way to a loss in San Francisco. With most hope lost, the sane fans asleep, and morale at an all time low, it looked as if Pete Alonso would play the hero after his sixteenth inning home run, but a pair of Giants runs in the bottom half secured their 3-2 win over the cursed Mets. All together, it took 15 pitchers and 16 innings of play for a winner to be declared as the Wild Card rematch between Noah Syndergaard and Madison Bumgarner became nothing more than a distant memory lost to the...

Pete Alonso’s blast in Minnesota was the Mets’ longest in the Statcast era

Pete Alonso’s blast in Minnesota was the Mets’ longest in the Statcast era

Do yourself a favor and rewatch this one as many times as you can. During the Mets’ rout of the Twins on Wednesday afternoon, Pete Alonso hit the type of home run that you don’t expect to see in a game—and maybe not even in batting practice. As the Mets turned a close game into a blowout, Alonso hit a home run into the middle of the third deck of Target Field. It made a fantastic sound off the bat, Statcast measured it at 474 feet, and it’s the kind of home run you want to watch over and over and over again. Statcast has only been around since 2015, but in that time, this home run...

Your Thursday morning dose of New York Mets and MLB news, notes, and links. Meet the Mets Judging by the final score, you would never know that the final game against the Twins was a tight ballgame heading into the seventh inning.

Their own sloppy play opened the floodgates and it was topped off by an absolute mammoth blast by Pete Alonso. The onslaught helped propel the Mets to a series sweep which is now their fourth win in a row. Choose your recap:...

Mets see red at Target Field, sweep the Twins

David Berding-USA TODAY Sports Dom Smith, Pete Alonso had big afternoons. The Mets took their fourth straight game today with a decisive victory over the Minnesota Twins at Target Field. Coming out of the All-Star break, the team has won both of its first two series, with the only blemish being Jason Vargas’s start on Friday night in Miami. Today, Vargas put that loss behind him and pitched a fine game. Vargas did what he’s been doing this season, which is hold teams to manageable scores, and keep his team in it long enough to give them a chance to win. The Twins got on the board...
