Celebrating the Mets Division Win

How do I celebrate the Mets first division championship since 2006? By going to Disney World of course! This is me totally geeking out in the Magic Kingdom.

Noah Syndergaard: About Last Night (September 25)

I didn’t think we’d be here. Not if I’m being honest. If you’™ve read this blog for any length of time (if so, thanks!) you know I’ve voiced my fair share of complaints. Prior to the trade deadline, right after the failed Carlos Gomez trade, I voiced many of those complaints in a rather scathing …

Steven Matz: About Last Night (September 24)

It seems like only yesterday when Steven Matz debuted against the Cincinnati Reds and Brandon Phillips homered to lead off the game.  Of course, if my memory serves me right, Matz’s first pitch went all Nuke LaLoosh and nearly tossed the ball over the backstop, was down 3-0 to Phillips, and then the home run. …

Bartolo Colon: About Last Night (September 23)

How you feel about the last few days probably gets into whether you’re a glass half empty or glass half full type of person. In other words, if you’re not a Mets fan you probably see this series against Atlanta—and this home stand in general where the team went 3-6 and lost three straight series …

Jon Niese: About Last Night (September 21)

Confession time.  I actually watched Sleepless in Seattle in the theatre.  I also watched Titanic in the theatre, and while I remember the iceberg being really, really big and Billy Zane being sort of awesome, I remember most the drink I bought for $6.50 that was the size of a Super Big Gulp and held …

Noah Syndergaard: About Last Night (September 19)

I wonder how things would have gone for Noah Syndergaard in the first inning if he’d replaced that 0-2 fastball to Carlos Beltran at the knees with the slider he threw Greg Bird in the fourth or the curve he threw Didi Gregorius in the fifth. Luckily for us, Syndergaard tried to do that very …

Steven Matz: About Last Night (September 18)

I’m sure like a lot of people who follow the Mets, I thought this start by Steven Matz (4-0) against the Yankees was a good test for the rookie. It was in the Subway Series, with both teams vying for the playoffs, and if there’s a more electric place than NYC when the games matter …

Jacob deGrom: About Last Night (September 15)

I imagine the chat between Jacob deGrom (13-8) and Pitching Coach Dan Warthen in the fourth inning last night went a little something like this: “The fastball’s not working coach,” deGrom says. “Why in God’s name would you throw Justin Bour three straight fastballs, then?” “Tuesday is sort of a stupid day, isn’t it? I …

Logan Verrett: About Last Night (September 14)

Maybe it’s just me, but I find Justin Bour to be the most fascinating hitter in the Marlins lineup. He’s not the most dangerous, though he certainly has enough to power to make the team pay as he showed in Miami a week ago. How would the Mets attack Bour in this series? If you …

Jonathon Niese: About Last Night (September 13)

All of three weeks ago, I began to look over the schedule and wondered when we’d see a little clarity in the standings. The Nationals were about to begin a stretch where they played 16 of 19 games at home (where they were a combined 129-87 over the last three seasons and 31-23 entering that …
