2017 Mets Season Review: Seth Lugo’s season threw him many curves

2017 Mets Season Review: Seth Lugo’s season threw him many curves

The king of spin rate showed some signs of cromulence between injuries. The most notable portion of Seth Lugo’s 2017 season may well have taken place before Opening Day. His success in the early rounds of the World Baseball Classic brought some national prominence to a pitcher known to Mets fans for his impressive, seemingly out-of-nowhere late-season contributions to the team’s 2016 Wild Card run, and to the statistically-inclined for the otherworldly spin rate on his curveball. However, many speculated that Lugo’s early exertion pitching for Puerto Rico in the WBC may have...

2017 Mets Minor League Review: St. Lucie Mets

2017 Mets Minor League Review: St. Lucie Mets

We take a look back at how the St. Lucie Mets fared this year. Season Record: 33-35 (Florida State League South, 5th place) / 30-40 (Florida State League South, 6th place) Overall, it was a down year for St. Lucie. In both the first and second halves of the Florida State League season, the team had sub-.500 records. St. Lucie’s pitching was suspect coming into the season, and injuries and ineffectiveness further weakened it. An offense that was already lacking in talent didn’t help matters. Despite the underwhelming performance, there were a few bright spots over the course of the 2017...

Mets vs. Phillies Recap: Time to wake up Green Day

Mets vs. Phillies Recap: Time to wake up Green Day

September ended with a Mets victory. It was far less dramatic, and the circumstances have certainly changed, but Asdrubal Cabrera hit another three-run home run in the 11th inning to give the Mets a 7-4 victory over the Phillies. Seth Lugo got the start in place of the ill Jacob deGrom and was on a pitch count. He got into trouble early but worked out of it in the first. However, he continued to fall behind Phillies batters but he did not walk any of them. The trouble came in the second inning when Maikel Franco blasted a home run to left, and Cesar Hernandez got a hit Jose...

Final Score: Mets 7, Phillies 4-Outta here, Outta here

Take the victory, even if it is a small one. Asdrubal Cabrera’s 11th inning three-run home run helped get the Mets a 7-4 victory in Philadelphia. The bullpen had squandered a lead late, but Cabrera’s home run salvaged the game for the Mets. Seth Lugo was still on a pitch count and only went the first four innings of the game. He did manage to leave with the lead even after he gave up two runs in the second. Amed Rosario first put the Mets on the board with a RBI double, and the next inning Brandon Nimmo gave them the lead with a two-run triple. Cabrera tacked on another run in the...

Mets vs. Braves Game 2 Recap: Late night scare

Things got dicey in the end, but the Mets hang on. After getting beaten up in the afternoon game, the Mets hung on to win 3-2 in the second half of the doubleheader. Seth Lugo led the way with a fantastic start, while Travis d’Arnaud carried the offense with an RBI double and a solo home run. Jeurys Familia secured the save after some poor defense made things close in the ninth. After Lugo worked around a single from Nick Markakis in a quick top of the first, the Mets put together a rally in the bottom half. Brandon Nimmo led off with a double that should have been caught...

Final Score: Mets 3, Braves 2—Everything’s better at night

The evening game went much better for the Mets. After being blown out in the afternoon portion of their doubleheader with the Braves, the Mets bounced back with a 3-2 win in the nitecap. Seth Lugo was fantastic, tossing six innings of scoreless ball and striking out seven, and Jeurys Familia worked around a couple of defensive blunders in a shaky ninth inning for his second save since returning from the disabled list. The Mets squandered several opportunities to score with both poor baserunning and four double plays. Asdrubal Cabrera and Travis d’Arnaud both managed RBIs in the third,...
