Smiles like a light house in the fog

The two happiest faces on the Mets gave the team a walk off victory on a foggy night. Wilmer Flores drove in Brandon Nimmo to walk the Mets off with a 5-4 victory over the Diamondbacks. Steven Matz was roughed up and the offense squandered several big opportunities, but the bullpen came through in a big way, tossing five innings of scoreless relief to keep the Mets in the game. Devin Mesoraco tied the game in the eighth with a home run, setting up the walk off fireworks in the ninth. Steven Matz worked around trouble nicely in the first, stranding Nick Ahmed at second after...

Steven Matz fails to answer Mickey Callaway’s challenge

Steven Matz fails to answer Mickey Callaway’s challenge

Mickey Callaway is not shying away from putting pressure on the back end of his Mets rotation. But those starters have yet to consistently deliver. A night after Callaway revealed he told starters not named Jacob deGrom or Noah Syndergaard that how far the Mets go this season would depend on how they fare, Steven...

Final Score: Mets 5, Diamondbacks 4 - Flores and Friends

Final Score: Mets 5, Diamondbacks 4 - Flores and Friends

Wilmer Flores saved the day with his eighth career walk off RBI. The Mets won in walk off fashion on a foggy night in Queens, topping the Diamondbacks 5-4. Wilmer Flores was the hero with a sacrifice fly in the bottom of the ninth. Flores bailed out Steven Matz, who was roughed up - he gave up four runs in four innings, striking out only two and giving up two more home runs. The bullpen was fantastic in keeping things close after Matz departed, with Seth Lugo, Paul Sewald, AJ Ramos, and Jeurys Familia combining for five innings of scoreless relief. This was a seesaw affair. The Diamondbacks...

The Mets have two aces, and their rotation is still a complete mess

The Mets have two aces, and their rotation is still a complete mess

Jacob deGrom and Noah Syndergaard are among the very best pitchers in the game, but the rotation as a whole has a 4.51 ERA. As the Mets have struggled over the past month, they’ve had issues on all parts of their roster. But when it comes to the team’s starting rotation, things have gone really poorly overall, despite the fact that the team has a pair of aces in that rotation. At the moment, Jacob deGrom has a 1.83 ERA that ranks fifth among qualified starting pitchers in Major League Baseball. His last start was his first since his hyperextended elbow, and it was a weird one, but...

Mets begin interleague play against the Blue Jays

Mets begin interleague play against the Blue Jays

The Mets welcome back old friend Curtis Granderson and the Blue Jays for a quick two-game interleague matchup. The New York Mets (19-18) head back home after an eventful road trip to Cincinnati and Philadelphia for a quick two-game interleague series with the Toronto Blue Jays (21-20). After trading Matt Harvey to the Reds and gaining a new catcher in Devin Mesoraco, the Mets come home looking a little different as they welcome an old friend back to Citi Field. On Friday night, Jake Arrieta was having his way with the Mets lineup, shutting them out for 7 and 1⁄3 innings. Steven Matz had a...

Mets Player Performance Meter: Pitchers, May 7-13

A quick review of how the Mets’ pitchers fared over the past week. Lost among the discussions of how bad the Mets have been—and yes, the results have not been great, mostly due to the inability to score runs—has been the fact that the pitching has indeed improved of late. Steven Matz and Zack Wheeler especially have taken steps forward. Matz had his second good start in a row this week. He wasn’t quite as effective as he was at Citi Field against the Rockies in his previous start, but he was able to limit the damage and work out of trouble against the Phillies, only...
