Final Score: Miami 13, Mets 1—Futility in South Florida

Final Score: Miami 13, Mets 1—Futility in South Florida

Where have you gone, Matt Harvey? The Mets dropped the first game of their three game set with the Marlins, 13-1 at Marlins Park in Miami. After a somewhat promising weekend, the Mets looked about as poor as they have all season, and got some truly awful pitching. Dan Straily started for the Marlins, and struck out eight over his five innings of work. Matt Harvey got hit early and hard, giving up twelve hits, two walks, and seven runs in his four plus innings of work. Harvey’s outing was punctuation by a three-run home run by Giancarlo Stanton, his 55th of the year. The bullpen didn’t...

Miami will challenge the Mets with its lineup of solid dudes

Miami will challenge the Mets with its lineup of solid dudes

Unlike New York, the Marlins held on to most of their offense this season. Even before Hurricane Irma hit Florida, the Marlins were in a tailspin. A sweep of San Diego in late August put Miami at 66-63 and on the fringe of postseason contention, but since then our fishy friends have gone 3-17 to land themselves outside of the October conversation. Irma forcing the team to move its home series against Milwaukee to Wisconsin wasn’t exactly what the Marlins needed to get going, but the show must go on, and Don Mattingly’s club found a way to win one out of three games at Miller Park over...

Mets Player Performance Meter: Pitchers, September 11-17

A quick review of how the Mets’ pitchers fared over the past week If ever there were a week that perfectly described the Mets’ pitching performance this year, it might be this one. So let’s get right to it. Jerry Blevins had a 6.75 ERA in 2.2 innings. And Chasen Bradford had a 21.60 ERA in 1.2 innings. Jamie Callahan had a 27.00 ERA, albeit in just two-thirds of an inning. As you might expect, Jacob deGrom was great and easily the Mets’ best pitcher for the week. He gave up just one run with seven strikeouts and one walk in seven innings. Jeurys Familia managed two...

Mets Player Performance Meter: Position players, September 11-17

A quick review of how the Mets’ everyday players fared over the past week The past seven days went pretty well for the Mets at the plate, all things considered. There were several players who didn’t hit well at all, but the team got good-to-great performances from more players than you might expect at this juncture of this season. Outfielder Nori Aoki had a nice week with a .273/.385/.455 line and one home run. It’ll be interesting to see whether or not he’s tendered a contract by the Mets this winter. Asdrubal Cabrera is absolutely deserving on the fireball. He hit...

Mets vs. Braves Recap: Gsellman excellent, offense adequate

Robert Gsellman starred in the Mets’ final game in Atlanta for the season. Instead of entering their usual Sunday malaise, the Mets topped the Braves 5-1 in Atlanta. Robert Gsellman led the way, tossing seven excellent innings, and the offense rallied late to put the game out of reach for a bad Braves team. The Mets got off to a fast start against Teheran thanks to some excellent plate discipline. Nori Aoki worked a seven pitch walk to start the game, and Jose Reyes followed by ripping a triple down the right field line to give the Mets a quick 1-0 lead. Brandon Nimmo and...

Final Score: Mets 5, Braves 1—Sunday fun-day

Robert Gsellman led the Mets to a rare win on a Sunday. In their final game in Atlanta this season, the Mets came out on top of the Braves 5-1. The Mets scored twice off of Julio Teheran, then added three more runs in the ninth off of reliever Jose Ramirez. Robert Gsellman was excellent, allowing only an unearned run and three hits over seven innings. He struck out three and walked none, and would have had a shutout if not for errors on back-to-back plays by Amed Rosario in the bottom of the seventh. Jerry Blevins and AJ Ramos kept things calm in relief, locking down the win with a...
