Mets complete two game series sweep of Twins

Mets complete two game series sweep of Twins
While the Mets have made it clear they have little interest in trading assets under team control beyond this season, perhaps Dominic Smith is an exception. Smith, a first baseman, is blocked at his natural position by Pete Alonso. Even though he’s acquitted himself just fine to the outfield, the Mets feature a fair bit of depth there heading into... more

Conforto does it with bat, glove to propel Mets past Twins

Conforto does it with bat, glove to propel Mets past Twins
Both publicly and privately, Mets officials have maintained that they have no interest in blowing up the team’s core prior to the July 31 Trade Deadline. A few deals at the margins make sense as the Mets try to find value for their impending free agents, but the team has little intention of dealing anyone who holds value for them... more

McNeil lifts Mets to first series win in over a month

McNeil lifts Mets to first series win in over a month
  Minutes before Jeff McNeil led off Sunday afternoon’s series finale at Marlins Park, Mets manager Mickey Callaway told his All-Star to work an 11-pitch at-bat before homering. “I just laughed and said I’d do one on the first pitch,” McNeil quipped. McNeil did just that, sending fellow All-Star Sandy Alcantara’s first offering just over the right-field wall in the... more

Mets release Syracuse outfielder Matt Kemp

Mets release Syracuse outfielder Matt Kemp
When veteran outfielder Matt Kemp arrived in Syracuse last month, he predicted his stay with the Triple-A Mets would be a short one. He was right, but not for the reason he thought. Kemp figured he’d quickly work his way out of Syracuse and back to the big leagues, but instead his comeback attempt was derailed by injuries and on... more

Cano comes up with clutch HR in Mets’ win

Cano comes up with clutch HR in Mets’ win
Where has Robinson Cano’s power gone? It’s a question that was posed to Mets manager Mickey Callaway during his pregame media scrum as the 15-year veteran entered Saturday with just four homers in 66 games. “Overall, it’s just consistently putting the barrel on the ball. When he’s going good, he’s putting the barrel on the ball,” Callaway said. “He’s just... more

Long ball hurts Mets in 8-4 loss to Marlins

Auto Draft
Collectively, the Marlins are not a power-hitting team, but that doesn’t mean they can’t occasionally do damage with the long ball. That was certainly the case on Friday night, when backed by home runs from Curtis Granderson, Garrett Cooper and Brian Anderson, the Marlins rallied to an 8-4 win over the Mets at Marlins Park. Five of Miami’s eight runs... more

Mets’ Alonso wins 2019 Home Run Derby

Mets’ Alonso wins 2019 Home Run Derby
With an average contestant age of 25.26 years, the 2019 T-Mobile Home Run Derby featured the youngest field in the event’s history, so it’s fitting that a rookie slugger took home the $1 million prize. Mets rookie sensation Pete Alonso overcame a mesmerizing performance from Blue Jays phenom Vladimir Guerrero Jr. — who hit a single-Derby-record 91 homers — with... more

Nola stifles Mets at Citi Field as Phillies win 8-3

Nola stifles Mets at Citi Field as Phillies win 8-3
  Right-hander Aaron Nola showed once again why he is currently the best starting pitcher in the Phillies’ rotation. He was dominant for 6 2/3 innings on Sunday, helping the Phillies defeat the Mets, 8-3, at Citi Field, as both teams head into the All-Star break. The Phillies ended the first half with a 47-43 record. How dominating was Nola... more

Phillies erupt in 9th, beat Mets for 6th straight time

Phillies erupt in 9th, beat Mets for 6th straight time
Maybe it was a good thing for the Phillies that Mets right-hander Jacob deGrom left Friday’s game after seven innings. He was dominating, striking out 10 batters. Two innings after he departed, the Phillies took advantage of the situation against closer Edwin Diaz and defeated New York, 7-2, at Citi Field. It was the Phillies’ sixth straight victory over the... more

German triumphant in return as Yankees top Mets

German triumphant in return as Yankees top Mets
The Yankees beat the Mets, 5-1, at Citi Field on Wednesday night in Domingo Germán’s return from the injured list. German had been sidelined with a left hip flexor strain since early June. German allowed just one run over six innings, striking out six batters while not issuing a walk. He threw 80 pitches, which matched up with the pitch-count... more

Mets rally late to top Yanks at Citi Field

Mets rally late to top Yanks at Citi Field
Given that the Yankees were in Queens on Tuesday, making the short trip over the Robert F. Kennedy Bridge, it was hardly unusual to see members of their scouting department flitting about Citi Field. Still, their purpose seemed more pointed than usual. The Yankees, who are in first place and almost certainly headed to the playoffs, need starting pitching. The... more

McNeil lifts Mets over Braves, takes batting race lead

McNeil lifts Mets over Braves, takes batting race lead
This time last year, Jeff McNeil had only recently received a promotion to the Mets’ Triple-A Las Vegas affiliate, where he wondered what he would have to do to receive a callup to the big leagues. Mets officials seemed to have little interest in promoting McNeil, until he kept on hitting enough to force his way to the Majors. Fast... more

Phillies had lost 7 straight games before beating Mets Monday night

Phillies had lost 7 straight games before beating Mets Monday night
Gabe Kapler on Monday afternoon seemed to acknowledge a serious flaw in the Phillies’ offensive approach the past two seasons. A few hours later he might have seen the early returns in their efforts to change it. The Phillies jumped on fastballs in a 13-7 victory over the Mets at Citizens Bank Park, snapping the Phillies’ season-high seven-game losing streak.... more
