The Mets Are Homering For Fun, And Probably Going To Make The Playoffs

We’re used to writing about the Mets for other reasons around here, so please forgive me if I make any mistakes while trying to play this one straight, but the Mets offense absolutely went bonkers Monday night, and it increasingly looks like they are going to skate right into the playoffs. » 8/25/15 2:03am 8/25/15 2:03am

Yoenis Cespedes Credits First Mets HR To Rally Parakeet

Deadline acquisition Yoenis Cespedes’s eighth-inning home run put the finishing touches on the Mets’ 3-0 win over the Rockies last night, a victory that put them 3.5 games up in the NL East.

Mets Blow Game, Mets Grounds Crew Blows Rain Delay

Rain forced a 45-minute delay in Queens today as the Mets were an out away from finishing up a win over San Diego. That delay was lifted just long enough for Jeurys Familia to give up the lead thanks to a three-run Justin Upton homer—which forced a bottom of the ninth. Well, that bottom of the ninth will be awhile in… » 7/30/15 3:58pm 7/30/15 3:58pm

John Smoltz Says The Mets' Rotation Is "Way Better" Than The '90s Braves

In Matt Harvey (26), Jacob deGrom (27), Noah Syndergaard (22), Steven Matz (24), and Zack Wheeler (25), the Mets have some of baseball’s best young starters, and hope to have them for a very long time. That staff just received a ringing endorsement from John Smoltz, who’s as qualified as anyone to talk about… » 7/17/15 9:07am 7/17/15 9:07am

Chris Heston Throws Unconventional No-Hitter

Giants pitcher Chris Heston, in only the 13th start of his career, threw a no-hitter against the Mets at Citi Field tonight. If you look at the box score, you’ll notice he didn’t walk any batters, so why wasn’t it a perfect game? Because he hit three batters: two in a row in the 4th and one to lead off the 9th.… » 6/09/15 10:20pm 6/09/15 10:20pm

Mets Pitcher Dillon Gee Says He Was Tricked Into Supporting Gun Control

The New York Mets recently posed for the above photo in which they all wear orange to support the “Everytown for Gun Safety” nonprofit co-founded and supported by former New York mayor Mike Bloomberg.
