4/14/21 Game Preview: Philadelphia Phillies at New York Mets

Sweeping doubleheaders isn’t an easy task, but the New York Mets (4-3) found a way to do that yesterday. The Mets needed some extra-inning magic to win the opener before a brilliant pitching performance from Marcus Stroman helped them beat the Philadelphia Phillies (6-5) in the nightcap. The wins also put the Mets into first place in the National League East, a spot they will look to maintain as they continue their series with the Phillies tonight. First pitch for tonight’s game is scheduled for 7:10 p.m. at Citi Field. The Mets will send left-hander David Peterson (0-1, 13.50...

4/11/21 Game Preview: Miami Marlins at New York Mets

For all the talk of change surrounding the New York Mets (2-3), Saturday’s game against the Miami Marlins (2-5) offered a bad case of the Same Old Mets vibes.

The two teams have now split the first two games of their weekend set and will look to secure the rubber game this afternoon. First pitch for today’s game is scheduled for 1:10 p.m. at Citi...

Do the New York Mets have a bullpen problem?

It may be only four games into the season but it is never too early to make some observations about the New York Mets. A 2-2 record is just fine after four games, but the Mets still have issues to work through. While most fans and media will focus on the team’s poor performance with runners in scoring position, the bigger concern may be the Mets’ bullpen. Despite carrying eight relievers to start the season, manager Luis Rojas has shown through his actions that he only really trusts three guys: Miguel Castro, Trevor May and Edwin Diaz. Castro and...

4/8/21 Game Preview: Miami Marlins at New York Mets

The opening series didn’t go as planned for the New York Mets (1-2), who dropped two out of three against the Philadelphia Phillies. Bullpen problems plagued the Mets in the entire series and poor performance with runners in scoring position brought back bad memories of the 2020 team. The Mets will look to turn the page on that series as they kick off their home schedule today against the Miami Marlins (1-5). First pitch for today’s game is scheduled for 1:10 p.m. at Citi Field. 2020 was a good year for the Marlins, who overcame some serious adversity to...
