Player Meter: Pitchers, June 6-12

Jayne Kamin-Oncea-USA TODAY Sports A quick review of how the Mets’ pitchers fared over the past week. The Mets were handed a few ugly, lopsided losses this week in which the pitching staff did not cover itself in glory. Chris Bassitt in particular among the starters continues to struggle of late and the bullpen had a few nightmarish performances to boot. The bullpen also lost Colin Holderman, who had been pitching so well, to a shoulder impingement, which hopefully won’t result in a prolonged absence. However, it isn’t all bad this week. Both Taijuan Walker and...

Diaz emphatically shuts door as Mets come back to take series from Angels

Kiyoshi Mio-USA TODAY Sports Mets win rubber game against the Angels to secure a .500 record on a tough West Coast trip. The finale of a long, ten-game road trip that was purported to determine if the Mets were “for real”—and which they needed to win for a .500 trip—got off to a rough start, as the team went down pretty quietly against Patrick Sandoval in the top of the first. The Angels on the other hand jumped on Taijuan Walker in the bottom of the first, as Brandon Walsh doubled to deep right and came around on a single by Mike Trout. Down 1-0 two batters...
