The AL East gap is growing, and so are Yankees’ warning signs

BOSTON — You want to talk trends and warning signs? For the first time this season, the Yankees don’t control their own destiny in the American League East race. The Yankees are closer to missing the playoffs altogether than they are to winning their division. If not for the cratering of the 2017 Mets, they...

Mets Player Performance Meter: Position Players, August 14-20

A quick review of how the Mets’ position players fared over the past week With the Mets having completed a bunch of waiver trades over the past couple of weeks, the player meter is going to look quite a bit different the rest of the way this season than it had all year—especially on the position player side. This season is now about the performances of the team’s youngsters and what types of players they might look like heading into the 2018 season. Perhaps still a candidate to be traded, Asdrubal Cabrera has an option for next year that might have the Mets interested...

Monday Morning Mets Mind Boggler: Pitchers who played for the Mets and Yankees

Can you name every pitcher who pitched at least 100 innings for both the Mets and the Yankees? Last week, we asked you to name every position player with at least 100 games for both the Mets and the Yankees.

Pitchers who pitched at least 100 innings for both the Mets and the Yankees The last player not listed here to accomplish the feat was Tyler Clippard.

Mets Morning News: Mistakes prove costly against the Marlins

Your Monday morning dose of New York Mets and MLB news, notes, and links. Meet the Mets No offense and shaky defense led to another lost Sunday afternoon for the Mets against the Marlins. The Marlins’ defense played a vital role in Saturday’s win, and on Sunday it was the Mets’ turn to give the game away. Only Cespedes’s error showed up in the box score, but crucial misplays by Travis d’Arnaud and Amed Rosario set the stage for Giancarlo Stanton to take Jacob deGrom deep. The offense could not get going against starter Adam Conley. They did attempt a comeback against the bullpen...

Boyd’s two-out single in the bottom of the first gave Vegas an early 2-0 lead that they were able to extend in the bottom of the second when a Jeff McNeil sacrifice fly plated Victor Cruzado.

Mets vs Marlins Recap: Too little, too late

deGrom was felled by Stanton’s 45th dinger The Mets dropped the third game, and the series, to the Miami Marlins this afternoon at Citi Field, 6-4. Someone needs to change all the Mets calendars to just read “Second Saturday,” because their play on Sundays has been absolutely atrocious this year (6-14). Jacob deGrom started for the Mets, and looked reasonably strong through his first six innings. A pair of singles to Dee Gordon and Christian Yelich put the Marlins up 1-0 in the top of the first, but that lead was quickly neutralized by a Yoenis Cespedes home run in the...

Final Score: Marlins 6, Mets 4—Cancel Sunday baseball

Stanton’d! The Mets continue their absolutely abysmal play on Sundays, dropping the finale of this three-game set to the Marlins, 6-4. Jacob deGrom started for the Mets, and looked solid for the first six innings, giving up two runs and striking out eight while not walking any. In the seventh, a couple of singles and a Giancarlo Stanton home run put the Mets in a hole they couldn’t dig out of. Adam Conley has had an up and down season this year, but looked absolutely stymied the Mets today, striking out 11 and walking two. Through Conley’s start, the lone Met offense came from a...

Goodbye, Curtis

Goodbye, Curtis

The outfielder certainly leaves a lasting impression behind. Don’t cry because it is over, smile because it happened. ~Dr. Seuss When word came down late on Friday night that Curtis Granderson had been traded to the Dodgers, I cried. Judging from all the Twitter posts, internet comments, Facebook comments, and quotes from teammates I was not alone in my reaction. That alone speaks volumes about the character of Curtis Granderson. Michael Conforto gave Curtis Granderson a ton of credit for his development. Can tell he's pretty upset today. #mets— Zach Braziller (@NYPost_Brazille)...

Rafael Montero and a seven-run rally carried the Mets past the Marlins. The Mets snapped a five-game losing streak with an 8-1 victory over the Marlins.
