Steven Matz didn’t give Mets a chance in ugly loss as playoff hopes fade

Steven Matz didn’t give Mets a chance in ugly loss as playoff hopes fade

The Mets withstood two consecutive abridged starts by their rotation, coming back each time behind a resilient bullpen and a productive lineup, to post two desperation wins they needed to barely remain alive in the National League playoff hunt. Steven Matz, however, made sure there would not be a third. Matz’s first start in more...

Final Score: Braves 15, Mets 2—Playoffs?!

Photo by Sarah Stier/ The Mets were embarrassed by a team that actually deserves to be in the postseason. Well, that was not what you want. The Mets dropped the first game of their series against the Braves in a 15-2 drubbing. This was a series that the Mets needed to take and they came out about as flat as they possibly could for the first game. The Mets took a risk by starting Steven Matz, who struggled when he was a starter earlier this year, and was making his first start back after missing nearly a month with a shoulder impingement, and it did not pay off. Matz got roughed up early,...

Steven Matz returns to rotation in big start vs. Braves

PHILADELPHIA — The forgotten man from the Mets’ original rotation this season will return Friday. It’s been a year to forget for Steven Matz — who sputtered early, got demoted to the bullpen then hit the injured list. Now the left-hander will just try to rinse a sour 2020 taste from his mouth with potentially...

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...

Manager Luis Rojas announced prior to the series finale against the Blue Jays in Buffalo that Rick Porcello would start Tuesday against...
