Player Meter: Pitchers, September 9-15

Photo by Rich Schultz/ A quick review of how the Mets’ pitchers fared over the past week. Other than Noah Syndergaard’s poor start on Friday night, the Mets’ starting rotation had a phenomenal week. Zack Wheeler and Jacob deGrom twirled two gems each, Marcus Stroman had his best start as a Met, and Steven Matz tossed six shutout innings in his start. In the Mets’ only other loss of the week on Sunday, it was the usually reliable members of the bullpen that let them down, albeit against a very formidable Dodgers lineup. Jacob deGrom and Zack Wheeler each made two...

In light of latest dazzling performance, what's next for the Mets and pending free agent Zack Wheeler?

With September dominance, including Sunday night's gem of a start against the Dodgers, Zack Wheeler is making it awfully difficult for the Mets to let him walk out the door as a free agent.

Mets lose heartbreaker late, and that might be all

Mets lose heartbreaker late, and that might be all

Wendell Cruz-USA TODAY Sports The Mets’ bullpen failed once again, blowing a critical game against the Dodgers. Zack Wheeler started last night’s game strong, retiring the first six men to face him and nine of the first ten. That opened up the door for the Mets’ offense, who struck first in the second. A one-out walk by Robinson Cano followed by a single from J.D. Davis put two men on base for Brandon Nimmo, who ripped a ball that stayed just fair down the right field line for a two-run triple. The Mets had an early lead. For the most part, Wheeler made that lead stand up. The...

Many layers of nuance to Mickey Callaway's decision to remove Zack Wheeler on Sunday

The most important inning of the Mets season began and ended with strategic intrigue -- hardly unusual for the Mickey Callaway era, which has been marked by curious managerial moves.

Mets Morning News for September 16, 2019

Photo by Rich Schultz/ Your Monday morning dose of New York Mets and MLB news, notes, and links. Meet the Mets In what may be the final nail in the coffin of the 2019 Mets, a tremendous start from Zack Wheeler was ultimately wasted as a late comeback gave the Dodgers a 3-2 win in Flushing. Choose your recap: Amazin’ Avenue short and long, New York Times, Bergen Record, Daily News, MLB.com, Newsday, Post. Justin Wilson’s caught cleat might’ve made the difference in Sunday’s loss to Los Angeles. As the Mets continue to sink, it’s no coincidence that Jeff McNeil and Pete...

Mets’ Justin Wilson doomed by cleat mishap in terrible spot

It was a costly outing for Mets reliever Justin Wilson on Sunday night. In a must-win series finale against the Dodgers, Wilson couldn’t follow up a strong seven-inning performance from starter Zack Wheeler as the Mets fell 3-2 at Citi Field. When Wilson entered with a 2-1 lead in the eighth inning, things didn’t look...

Final Score: Dodgers 3, Mets 2 - They blew it

Photo by Rich Schultz/ The Mets lost a game they absolutely had to win. On a night when the Mets desperately needed a win against a vastly superior opponent, a win that seemed within their grasp, they ultimately fell flat in a 3-2 loss to the Dodgers. Zack Wheeler was superb through seven innings and Brandon Nimmo generated just enough offense against Walker Buehler, but missed opportunities against the Dodger bullpen came back to bite the Mets when their own bullpen predictably struggled. The seventh inning of this game may well haunt the Mets if they fail to make the playoffs. Dustin...
