4/24/19 Game Preview: Philadelphia Phillies at New York Mets

By: Mike Phillips | April 24, 2019 Things went about as well as humanly possible for the New York Mets (13-10) last night. The Mets got a well pitched game from Zack Wheeler, who struck out 11 over seven shutout innings, and saw him drive in three runs in a 9-0 rout of the Philadelphia Phillies (12-11). The win was the Mets’ second straight, and they will look to break out the brooms and complete a sweep of the Phillies tonight. First pitch for the contest is scheduled for 7:10 p.m. at Citi Field.

It looks like Gio Gonzalez won't be a Met

By: Mike Phillips | April 24, 2019 Despite the pleas of their fan base, the New York Mets don’t appear motivated to land starting pitcher Gio Gonzalez. Gonzalez, who is a free agent again after opting out of his minor league deal with the New York Yankees, is expected to pick a new team at the end of the week. Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic notes that the Milwaukee Brewers, who had Gonzalez at the end of last season, have emerged as the favorites to sign the veteran left hander. There have been reports that the Mets are looking...

4/23/19 Game Preview: Philadelphia Phillies at New York Mets

By: Mike Phillips | April 23, 2019 After getting no outs against the Philadelphia Phillies (12-10) a week ago, Steven Matz had a much better showing this time around.

The Mets have started the past few series with wins but haven’t won a series since the first full week of the season, a trend they will look to break by beating the Phillies again tonight. First pitch for the middle game of this three...

4/22/19 Game Preview: Philadelphia Phillies at New York Mets

By: Mike Phillips | April 22, 2019 It may still be April, but the New York Mets (11-10) have played a grueling schedule. The Mets have played a lot of tough competition, playing all but five games against teams from the National League East, and have held serve. The schedule has also been road heavy, with the Mets having played 16 road games against just five at home, including a 4-6 trip the team just completed. The opponents are still difficult this week, but the Mets are back at home to kick off a 10-game home stand tonight with...

By: Mike Phillips | April 22, 2019 With Pete Alonso doing big things for the big club, New York Mets’ fans have one eye on the major league club and another on the farm to look for their next highly touted young player.

4/21/19 Game Preview: New York Mets at St. Louis Cardinals

By: Mike Phillips | April 21, 2019 Pitching depth remains an issue for the New York Mets (11-9), who took a beating yesterday at the hands of the St. Louis Cardinals (11-9). Chris Flexen filled in for the injured Jacob deGrom and was hit hard, giving up six runs (five of which were earned) in 4.1 innings as the Cardinals routed the Mets 10-2. The two teams have split the first two games of this weekend set and will look to secure the rubber game this afternoon. First pitch for today’s rubber game is scheduled for 2:15 p.m. at...

4/20/19 Game Preview: New York Mets at St. Louis Cardinals

By: Mike Phillips | April 20, 2019 The New York Mets (11-8) got a win last night despite another short outing from lefty Jason Vargas. Vargas was actually effective against the St. Louis Cardinals (10-9), allowing only one run, but he lasted only four innings due to tiring after 75 pitches. The Mets’ bullpen held on for the final five innings to secure a 5-4 victory, snapping a two game skid and bringing the Mets to 4-4 on their 10-road trip. The two teams will continue their series this afternoon, with first pitch for today’s game scheduled for 2:15...

4/19/19 Game Preview: New York Mets at St. Louis Cardinals

By: Mike Phillips | April 19, 2019 The New York Mets (10-8) get a break from National League East play this weekend, and that may be a good thing for them. The schedule has given the Mets almost exclusively NL East games to date, and the Mets have held their own, going 9-7 against the division in March and April. That mark includes the first two stops on this 10-game road trip, where the Mets went 3-4 against the Atlanta Braves and Philadelphia Phillies. The Mets will look to close out this trip on a winning note by getting...
