Jeurys Familia isn’t helping his Mets case at all

MIAMI — Jeurys Familia received an ideal low-risk opportunity to regain the Mets’ trust Sunday, but flopped. The struggling reliever was summoned to protect a four-run lead in the seventh inning at Marlins Park and departed after retiring only one of the four batters he faced. Seth Lugo entered to bail out Familia, who had...

Final Score: Mets 6, Marlins 2 - Don’t ya’ know

Robinson Cano had a great day in an easy Sunday win. The Mets got a rare Sunday-afternoon win, rolling over the Marlins 6-2. Jacob deGrom wasn’t at his best in this one, but fought his way through five innings of one run ball. Justin Wilson tossed a scoreless inning before Jeurys Familia struggled, but Seth Lugo bailed him out with a strikeout and a groundout. Robert Gsellman closed out the win. Offensively, the Mets benefited from several defensive miscues by an undisciplined Marlins team. Robinson Cano had the most impressive offensive performance of the day, going 4-for-5 with a homer...

Mets Morning News for July 14, 2019

Your Sunday morning dose of New York Mets and MLB news, notes, and links. Meet the Mets The Mets bested the Marlins 4-2 in a fashion that was, in many ways, just how Brodie Van Wagenen drew it up this offseason. Noah Syndergaard threw seven strong innings, but left with the game tied at two, the Mets’ two runs coming on a two-run homer by Michael Conforto. The Mets were able to get Syndergaard a win thanks to Robinson Cano’s two-run homer in the eighth inning. Seth Lugo pitched a 1-2-3 eighth inning, and Edwin Diaz closed it out in the ninth, notching his 20th save of the...

Player Meter: Pitchers, July 1-7

A quick review of how the Mets’ pitchers fared over the past week. The Mets activated three relief pitchers from the injured list this week—Luis Avilan, Jeurys Familia, and Justin Wilson—but the Mets bullpen didn’t exactly pitch any better as a unit this week, with the exception of Seth Lugo, who was the bright spot this week. This week also saw Steven Matz make his first appearances out of the bullpen, another deGrom gem squandered away, and one good performance and one bad one from Zack Wheeler. We’ll start with deGrom’s solid performance against the Phillies...

Another Mets loss rains on 1969 parade

Another Mets loss rains on 1969 parade

Seth Lugo fails to hold a lead—again—and the Mets lose—again Steven Matz took the mound this afternoon to face off against Julio Teheran and the Atlanta Braves, as the Mets desperately hoped that today would be the day in which their week-long losing streak would finally come to an end. But it was not to be, as the Mets continued their descent into irrelevance with a 5-4 loss at the hands of their division rival. Matz has struggled mightily in the first inning this season, and that trend continued this afternoon. The troubles began when he gave up two singles to Ronald Acuna Jr. and...

Clutch hit can’t keep Mets’ Robinson Cano from getting double-switched

Robinson Cano finally delivered a clutch hit on Saturday, but his night ended soon after when he was double-switched out of a 5-4 loss to Atlanta. Cano’s sixth-inning single gave the Mets their first lead, but he was removed for Seth Lugo to start the seventh, as manager Mickey Callaway looked to get two innings...

Mets can’t even win one for the 1969 miracle team

Not even a visit from the Miracle Mets can fix this bunch. After the Mets rallied from a three-run deficit — and took the lead thanks to a hit by Robinson Cano — their disastrous bullpen cost them again in a 5-4 loss to Atlanta on Saturday. Seth Lugo was the main culprit. The right-hander...

Final Score: Braves 5, Mets 4—The 1969 Mets were good, the 2019 Mets are not

The festivities before the game were excellent, but a lengthy rain delay and another poor Seth Lugo performance make for another frustrating loss On a day when the Mets celebrated one of the most unforgettable seasons in franchise history, the current team showed once again why this season is one that fans will be trying very hard to forget, as the Amazins lost to the Braves 5-4 for their seventh straight loss. After a wonderful pre-game ceremony in which the members of the 1969 World Series-winning Mets and their families were honored, the game itself got off to a rocky start, as Steven...

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...
