What’s the hottest look at tonight’s Met’s game, which you could call a gala if you were so inclined?
Big-ass Mets pitcher Noah Syndergaard had a good game against the Phillies last night, striking out eight and allowing just one run in seven innings. He’s struck out 29 jamokes in his first 20 innings of the season, and he’s done it by throwing the ball really, really hard.
The fail whale turned up on tonight’s SNY broadcast of the Mets-Phillies game. It’s... something.
The Mets expect Jacob deGrom to return from the family emergency list in time for his next turn in the rotation. The hurler is on the temporary leave list due to complications with the birth of his newborn baby Jaxon, born Monday.
The Mets lost tonight despite a historically good start from Noah Syndergaard because they’re the Mets and ambitious losses are part of their DNA. They knocked around Jose Fernandez in the first inning, then loaded up the bases in the second only to leave empty-handed. After that, Fernandez straightened out and he and…
The New York Times tracked down some of the Mets fans whose agony was captured in the moment Eric Hosmer tied last year’s World Series Game 5, and it’s terrific.
Publications across America, this one included, had a grand old time coming up with silly headlines to put above stories about Mets ace Matt Harvey’s bladder infection and blood clots, which briefly threatened to cost Harvey his Opening Day start. Harvey saw all of our jokes, and he’s not too happy about them.
The thing to remember is that all baseball players are large babies.
Yesterday afternoon brought down a Category 4 Mets Panic when word got out that Matt Harvey was in danger of missing his Opening Day start due to some mystery ailment. The panic got even worse when manager Terry Collins and GM Sandy Alderson steadfastly refused to say just what the hell was wrong with their ace. This…
Mets pitcher Matt Harvey has been scratched from his scheduled start tomorrow, and is a very big question mark to be ready to go for opening day? Why? It’s a big ol’ mystery, but, uh, prepare to panic, probably.
A truly amazing spring training lowlight from Mets-Astros this afternoon, as an A.J. Reed ball hit past Yoenis Cespedes stuck at the base of the wall. It didn’t wedge under anything; it wasn’t trapped, or unreachable; it wasn’t obstructed in any way that would have warranted the umpire calling dead ball and awarding a…
New York became the latest city to ban all forms of tobacco from sporting events, which is going to come down hard on the Mets and Yankees who are quite literally addicted to it. Players are handling the pending law in one of two ways: either proactively, by attempting to quit, or by wondering just how anyone can stop…
So this is pretty weird. Mets pitcher Jenrry Mejia, who recently became the first player in MLB history to receive a lifetime ban for failing three PED tests, has told The New York Times that his third positive test was the result of a conspiracy carried out against him by MLB.
After purchasing a pig for $7,000 on Saturday at a Florida county fair, Mets outfielder Yoenis Cespedes reportedly sent it to the butcher. Makes sense.
Mets outfielder Yoenis Cespedes has apparently run out of fancy motorized vehicles to drive to spring training, because this morning he rolled up to the Mets’ facility on a horse.
Yoenis Cespedes got paid this offseason, and he arrived at the Mets’ spring training facility riding a tricked-out, three-wheeled motorcycle thingy, as any rich person should.
Jenrry Mejia really likes taking steroids. He was suspended by MLB for 80 games when he tested positive for stanozolol last April, and was hit with a 162-game suspension three months later when he tested positive for stanozolol and boldenone. Today brings news that Mejia failed a third test, this time for boldenone.
The owners of the New York Mets are no strangers to financial calamity. After losing $550 million in Bernie Madoff’s Ponzi scheme and paying out $80 million to settle a lawsuit claiming they were in on the scheme, Fred and Jeff Wilpon managed to keep their team by taking out loans and slashing payroll.
