Buck Showalter Tells WFAN He Wants To Be Considered For Mets Job
Buck Showalter says he’d like to be considered for the Mets’ managerial opening, although he admits he’s uncomfortable publicly campaigning for it. “Yeah, I’d like to be talked about it, but I’m not going to campaign about it, and I’m real uncomfortable even talking about it with you now because there’s a lot of good people out there and they’re... more

Walk-off home run lifts Mets over Braves

Walk-off home run lifts Mets over Braves
As they do every year after the season, the Mets will hold organizational meetings next week at Citi Field. Conspicuously absent from those meetings will be manager Mickey Callaway, who plans to make the 19-hour drive home to Florida with no guarantees about his future. That Callaway wasn’t invited to the Mets’ baseball-operations powwow is unusual, though not entirely unexpected... more

Pete Alonso sets rookie home run record in Mets 3-0 win over Braves

Pete Alonso sets rookie home run record in Mets 3-0 win over Braves
Shortly after Pete Alonso matched Aaron Judge’s Major League rookie home run record on Friday night, Judge said in no uncertain terms that Alonso would soon stand alone atop the leaderboard. No matter that only two games remained in the season. Alonso’s reputation had reached the point that the record was going to fall, in Judge’s words, “for sure.” Not 24 hours later,... more

Pete Alonso ties MLB rookie record with 52nd home run in Mets 4-2 win over Braves

Pete Alonso ties MLB rookie record with 52nd home run in Mets 4-2 win over Braves
A wide grin spread across Pete Alonso‘s face as he rounded first, staying there for most of his trip around the bases. Alonso thrust both hands into the air, clapped his hands and celebrated with his teammates. Then he emerged from the dugout once more for a curtain call. Earlier this week, when asked about the possibility of hitting as many... more

Mets beat Marlins 10-3 but get eliminated from playoff contention with Brewers win

Mets beat Marlins 10-3 but get eliminated from playoff contention with Brewers win
If the Mets needed a reminder of what could have been, it was laid plain before them Wednesday night at Citi Field. Their best pitcher, Jacob deGrom, offered a final, convincing (and possibly superfluous) argument for a second consecutive National League Cy Young Award. Their best hitter, Pete Alonso, bashed his 51st home run to move within one of Aaron... more

Mets fall 3-2 to Reds as their postseason chances continue to decrease

Mets fall 3-2 to Reds as their postseason chances continue to decrease
All six division leaders in baseball have something in common besides knowing they’re headed for the playoffs. They all have .500 or better records in one-run games this season. The Reds lead the Major Leagues this season with 56 games decided by one run. They also lead the league with 32 losses in those games, but Saturday’s tight contest vs.... more

Mets defeat Rockies, 6-1

Mets defeat Rockies, 6-1
Upon lasting just four innings against the Phillies earlier this month, failing to deliver a quality start for the sixth time in seven tries since joining the Mets, Marcus Stroman defined himself as “extremely frustrated and kind of angry.” “I definitely wanted to come out hot here, and I haven’t,” Stroman said that night. “I just haven’t been myself here.”... more

Jacob deGrom and Rajai Davis lead Mets to a win over Dodgers

Jacob deGrom and Rajai Davis lead Mets to a win over Dodgers
Since arriving as a September callup, Rajai Davis had accomplished little of note. In four of the seven games he appeared before Saturday, Davis did not log a plate appearance. He provided the Mets with veteran depth, nothing more. Yet in the eighth inning Saturday, Davis delivered one of the more impactful hits of the Mets’ season. Forced to use a pinch-hitter... more

Mets fall 9-2 to Dodgers in series opener

Mets fall 9-2 to Dodgers in series opener
Rookies Gavin Lux and Edwin Ríos homered and Clayton Kershaw continued his dominance over the Mets on Friday night in the Dodgers’ 9-2 win at Citi Field. Lux capped a four-run fourth inning off Noah Syndergaard (10-8) with his second home run in 10 MLB games. Rios, pinch-hitting in the eighth, went opposite field with a two-run shot. Kershaw, 14-5 on the season, snapped a three-start... more
