Former Mets Exec Sues Team, Says She Was Fired For Being Pregnant

I'd say this story belongs in the LOLMets pantheon, but this is less "ha ha" funny than it is "wow, the Mets appear to be run by a tremendously scummy sexist" funny. » 9/10/14 5:49pm 9/10/14 5:49pm

Man Goes To Mets Sleepover, Leaves With Gross Rash

A Mets Game, As Experienced By The Team Twitter Account

We rag on the Mets here a good amount—mostly because it's so much fun—but tonight, during a 6-0 loss to the Phillies, the team twitter account got in on the joke and had some fun.

I Can't Stop Watching This Agonized Mets Fan's Performative Suffering

After Juan Lagares popped out in foul territory with two men on against the Braves, this guy just couldn't handle the Mets' inability to score.

Let's Watch Bartolo Colon Swing Poorly In Slow-Mo

Earlier this season, Bartolo Colon recorded his first hit since 2005. (He now has two on the season!) But in the fourth inning of today's Mets-Pirates game, he wasn't Bartolo the Slugger. He was Bartolo the Whiffer. » 6/29/14 3:55pm 6/29/14 3:55pm

The Mets Can't Hit And Can't Pitch But They Sure Can Fire People

Citi Field Shake Shack Food Poisoning Hits Mets Player, Phillies Manager

Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg and Mets first baseman Lucas Duda both came down with cases of food poisoning during a weekend series in Queens, and the culprit seems to be undercooked burgers from the Citi Field Shake Shack.

Jenrry Mejia Is Not Hating Baseball So Much Anymore

When we last checked in with Mets pitcher Jenrry Mejia, he was just so damn sick and tired of all the bullshit. He's since been removed from the starting rotation, which seems to have done a lot of good for his mental well being. » 5/13/14 11:13am 5/13/14 11:13am

Matt Harvey Tweets Bird-Flipping Picture, Immediately Deletes Account

Mets pitcher Matt Harvey tweeted out this picture today as a way to mark the six-month anniversary of his Tommy John surgery. It's a silly and harmless picture, but Harvey, or someone within the Mets organization, thought that its existence was offensive enough to warrant Harvey deleting his entire Twitter account.… » 4/22/14 1:18pm 4/22/14 1:18pm

Bartolo Colon's Plate Appearances Are Baseball's Gift To All Of Us

We should treasure every time Mets pitcher Bartolo Colon has to take an at-bat. Baseball's giving us a present. Last night's game against the Braves was a special treat, as Colon swung so hard that his helmet flew off of his head. Yes, there's video. » 4/20/14 10:12am 4/20/14 10:12am

Mike Francesa Wouldn't Shut Up About Paternity Leave Today

Mets second baseman Daniel Murphy is going to be away from the team for a few days on paternity leave, because his wife had a child and he wants to be with his wife and child. This is a thing that men in America, even athletes, do. Usually if they don't, it's because they're not lucky enough to have a good job where… » 4/02/14 5:37pm 4/02/14 5:37pm
