Mets Morning News: Mistakes prove costly against the Marlins

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...

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

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...

Washington Nationals take 3 of 4 from San Diego Padres with 4-1 win in finale in Petco

Gio Gonzalez was solid again and the Nationals took 3 of 4 in Petco Park with a 4-1 win over the Padres today. San Diego scored an unearned run early with Gio Gonzalez on the mound in Petco Park, but Washington’s southpaw kept the Padres off the board after that, as the Nationals rallied for two in the fifth and a 3-1 advantage in what ended up a 4-1 win, their third in the four-game series. Gonzalez scored the Nationals’ first run of the game, walking, taking third on a double by Wilmer Difo, and scoring on a Daniel Murphy sac fly. Murphy drove in the go-ahead run with an RBI single...

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...
