Mets drop Monday night series opener to Dodgers, 9-5

Auto Draft
The Cody Bellinger MVP Tour returned to Dodger Stadium on Monday night with the slugging outfielder unleashing his boundless talents and leaving his manager, as well as the opposition, at a loss to explain it. Bellinger homered, threw out one runner at home plate and another at third base to prevent another run, cutting off an eighth-inning comeback as the... more

3 things the Mets learned on the 6-1 homestand

3 things the Mets learned on the 6-1 homestand
Given two-plus weeks to fatten up against some of the Majors’ worst teams, the Mets took a long and winding road back to .500. In winning a 4-3 game over the Tigers on Sunday, New York finished 9-6 over what will likely be its easiest patch of schedule this season: 15 consecutive games against sub-.500 teams. Within that stretch, the... more

Mets pound Washington bullpen for 6 in the 8th to win

Mets pound Washington bullpen for 6 in the 8th to win
Forgotten for much of this season, buried on the Mets’ depth chart, Juan Lagares has been a footnote to the team’s season to date. Perhaps no longer. Pressed into increased playing time due to a spate of outfield injuries, Lagares ripped a go-ahead three-run double in the eighth inning on Wednesday, leading the Mets to a 6-1 win over the... more

Rosario’s hustle, Alonso’s muscle win it for Mets

Rosario’s hustle, Alonso’s muscle win it for Mets
Entering this season, it would not have been outlandish to predict that Pete Alonso might set a Mets rookie record for home runs before the All-Star break. It would have been less believable to think he’d do so with seven weeks until the break. Alonso’s record-breaking 16th home run sailed over the left-field foul pole at Citi Field, tying Tuesday’s... more

Callaway gets vote of support as Mets snap losing skid

Callaway gets vote of support as Mets snap losing skid
  As Mets general manager Brodie Van Wagenen took the podium Monday, most of the highest-ranking members of the Mets’ baseball operations hierarchy — chief operating officer Jeff Wilpon, multiple assistant GMs, and more — filed into the team’s press conference room behind him. Manager Mickey Callaway stood there also, arms crossed, as Van Wagenen gave him the organization’s backing... more

Marlins shut-out lifeless Mets for second straight game

Marlins shut-out lifeless Mets for second straight game
  Sandy Alcantara wasn’t perfect on Sunday, but he was pretty close. The Marlins starter threw his first career complete game in Miami’s 3-0 win over the Mets, completing a three-game sweep at Marlins Park. Alcantara gave up just two hits and struck out eight, also a career high in an extremely efficient 89-pitch (55 strikes) effort just one day... more

Washington holds off late Mets rally to win, 7-6

Washington holds off late Mets rally to win, 7-6
The Nationals had just played one of their cleanest games of the season to cruise to a victory on Wednesday night, when Howie Kendrick stood in front of his locker and told reporters one of defining messages of this recent stretch — “It’s great for tonight,” he said, “but we got to do it consistently.” Indeed, consistency has been one... more

Corbin K’s 11 Mets in 5-1 Nationals win

Corbin K’s 11 Mets in 5-1 Nationals win
When the Nationals have needed a “stopper” this season, someone to almost single-handedly take the game into his own hands and halt a losing skid, they have routinely been able to lean on Patrick Corbin. Take last Thursday for example, when he was responsible for stopping the Nats’ four-game losing streak with seven scoreless innings to beat the Dodgers. Corbin... more

Ramos grand slam, Syndergaard lift Mets over Washington

Ramos grand slam, Syndergaard lift Mets over Washington
  Before Tuesday’s series opener against the Nationals, manager Mickey Callaway, in defending catcher Wilson Ramos, mentioned that the sub-.500 Mets were six games above that mark on nights Ramos started. No matter that both traditional and advanced metrics painted a less appealing picture of Ramos. The Mets, Callaway said, considered their win-loss record with Ramos more than mere coincidence.... more

Is Tim Tebow still a legit prospect for Syracuse Mets? (video)

Is Tim Tebow still a legit prospect for Syracuse Mets? (video)
Tim Tebow of the Syracuse Mets is one of the worst players in Triple-A baseball. That’s not a hot take. Just look at the stats. Thorough 29 games, Tebow is batting .151, second-to-last in the International League. His slugging percentage is .204, which ranks dead last. Tebow’s on-base percentage is .218, which also ranks second-to-last. more

Mets win as deGrom continues his resurgence

Mets win as deGrom continues his resurgence
  For Jacob deGrom, a return to normalcy has meant a return to brilliance. Throughout a rocky April, deGrom bemoaned his inability to freeze his mechanics in their proper place, resulting in three poor starts in a row. Once the calendar flipped, so did deGrom. His seven solid innings Saturday lifted the Mets to a 4-1 win over the Marlins,... more

Mets jump on Marlins early, cruise to 11-2 win

Auto Draft
Earlier Friday, Mets chief operating officer Jeff Wilpon, general manager Brodie Van Wagenen and manager Mickey Callaway all gathered together for an unusual meeting. Wilpon, a member of the team’s ownership group, wanted to brainstorm how the Mets could recover from their 17-20 start, before things started to go too awry. No jobs were threatened, according to a source, though... more

Mets’ Darling says he has been diagnosed with thyroid cancer
Mets announcer Ron Darling says he has thyroid cancer and hopes to return to SNY’s broadcast booth in about a month. Darling issued a statement April 13 saying he planned to have surgery to remove a large mass from his chest and hoped to return to work in May. In a statement Monday, Darling says that after the removal of... more

Alonso: Paddack’s smack talk ‘doesn’t sit well’ after Mets 4-0 loss

Alonso: Paddack’s smack talk ‘doesn’t sit well’ after Mets 4-0 loss
Minutes after the Mets lost a 4-0 game to the Padres on Monday, Pete Alonso sat at his locker, as he often does, writing longform notes on the pitchers he faced in the game. On this day, his book included an entry on Chris Paddack, the brash, flame-throwing right-hander who blanked the Mets over 7 2/3 innings. Before the game,... more

Syndergaard first to hit HR, toss 1-0 shutout since 1983

Syndergaard first to hit HR, toss 1-0 shutout since 1983
It was subtle, perhaps even imperceptible to the untrained eye. But as Todd Frazier watched the early moments of Thursday’s game against the Reds at Citi Field, he noticed a different glint in Noah Syndergaard’s eye. Stepping into the batter’s box, several Reds gave Syndergaard nods of respect. In turn, Syndergaard roundly ignored each of them, glowering from his perch... more
