NY Mets starting pitcher trio has combined to go 2-14 this year

Where did it all go wrong? Well, three of the New York Mets starting pitchers have combined to go 2-14 this season. Steven Matz, Rick Porcello, and Michael Wacha have all turned in ridiculously bad seasons for the 2020 New York Mets. Combined, the trio has a record of 2-14. That’s very little winning and […] NY Mets starting pitcher trio has combined to go 2-14 this year - Rising Apple - Rising Apple - New York Mets News & Fan Community

Mets waste a Rick Porcello gem with offensive ineptitude and poor relief pitching

Mets waste a Rick Porcello gem with offensive ineptitude and poor relief pitching

Photo by Mike Stobe/ Smoke billowed out from behind Citi Field in the late innings—an apt metaphor for the end of the season. The Mets lost to the Braves 7-0, dropping two out of three in a key series which all but severed their tenuous ties to playoff contention. This game did not begin as a blowout. In fact, it began as an unexpected pitchers’ duel between Rick Porcello and Kyle Wright, who matched zeros through the first five innings. In the end, Porcello blinked first, giving up a solo homer to Ronald Acuna Jr. in the top of the sixth inning, the batter after he recorded his...

Final Score: Braves 7, Mets 0—Futility (and Fire) in Flushing

Photo by Mike Stobe/ Rick Porcello pitched his best game with the season hanging in the balance, but the Mets didn’t give him any run support. The Mets were shut out by the Braves 7-0 in a game they absolutely needed to win. Rick Porcello did his part, striking out ten Braves hitters over seven innings—a season high. The only run against him came on a Ronald Acuna Jr. solo homer that just sneaked over the wall into the front row seats in right field. But the normally mighty Mets offense could not break through against Kyle Wright, who pitched his best game as a major leaguer. He...

Mets get Jacob deGrom news they were hoping for

Though Rick Porcello has endured the worst season of his career in his first year with the Mets, manager Luis Rojas has at least been able to count on the former Cy Young winner to be ready to take the ball. Most importantly, Jacob deGrom is healthy enough, too. While Porcello (1-5, 6.06 ERA) will...

Mets vs. Phillies recap: Not a single clutch hit to be found

Photo by Mitchell Leff/ The Mets’ slim chances at the playoffs are quickly dwindling with every passing day. The Mets entered Philadelphia for a three game series last night, sitting 2.5 games behind the Phillies for the seventh seed in the National League. A sweep of the three games could have, unbelievably, propelled them into a playoff spot with a little more than two weeks left in the season. It goes without saying that, if the Mets want to make it to October, this was a huge series for them to take. They had to send the maligned Rick Porcello out to the mound for Game 1 because...

Mets fail in clutch, Porcello flops in brutal loss to Phillies

PHILADELPHIA – Zack Wheeler, Marcus Stroman and Noah Syndergaard are three names that probably would have looked better than Rick Porcello pitching for the dire-straits Mets on Tuesday. For various reasons, the aforementioned trio was unavailable, starting with the fact the Mets didn’t re-sign Wheeler last offseason, letting him defect to the Phillies. Syndergaard’s season...

Final Score: Phillies 4, Mets 1—Missed opportunities

Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports The Mets left a small country on base and fell to the Phillies. The Mets dropped the series opener to the Phillies tonight by a score of 3-1, dropping them to 21-27, 3.5 games behind the Phillies for the seventh seed and 2.5 games behind the Giants for the 8th seed as they sink further and further out of the race. Rick Porcello got the start for the Mets and got off to a strong start, beginning the game with three scoreless innings, the first time he’s ever done that since coming to the Mets. Things quickly unraveled for him from there, though, as he gave...

The Mets should take a look at their young arms

Photo by G Fiume/ Essentially, there’s nothing to lose. It’s no secret that the Mets’ rotation outside of Jacob deGrom has been awful this season. Even with the best pitcher in baseball leading the way, Mets starters have run a cumulative 5.18 ERA. Injuries and opt-outs decimated what was supposed to be the core of the rotation—Noah Syndergaard, Marcus Stroman, and Steven Matz—and both Rick Porcello and Michael Wacha have failed to fill those holes as free agent band aids. This glaring roster problem has really hurt the Mets’ postseason chances. After entering the...
