A Tale of Two Cookies

Photo by Sarah Stier/ For the third time in five September starts, Carrasco looked rough last night. First, the good news: the Mets are in the playoffs, no matter what happens over the next seven days. The bad news: due to a bad start from Carlos Carrasco, the Mets are now in a tie with the Braves for first place in the National League East. As Allison McCague discussed, the Mets have to make a decision for going with either Carrasco or Taijuan Walker as their fourth starter in the playoffs. And while Carrasco has overall had a very good second half since returning...

Photo by Sarah Stier/ Your Wednesday morning dose of New York Mets and MLB news, notes, and links. Meet the Mets The Mets and Carlos Carrasco struggled on Tuesday night, falling to the Marlins 6-4. For the second straight game, Carrasco did not last very long in his outing, giving up 4 runs in 3+ innings pitched. Most of the Mets offense on the night came from a Pete Alonso three-run homer, as well as a very interesting balk in the bottom of the eighth inning.

Mets drop into NL East tie as Carlos Carrasco struggles in loss to Marlins

The 10 ½-game edge the Mets held on June 1 is a distant memory. The 2 ½-game lead the Mets rebuilt as recently as Friday has been torn down.

Final Score: Marlins 6, Mets 4—Cookie Crumbles

Photo by Sarah Stier/ Carlos Carrasco was ineffective from the start and the Mets could not overcome the deficit. In a time when the Mets need to win every day to hold off the Braves, they dropped yet another game to a team 20+ games under .500 on Tuesday night, falling to the Marlins by a score of 6-3. Carlos Carrasco did not have it from the start, and one of the worst offenses in baseball knocked him around for four runs on six hits in just three innings pitched. The Marlins didn’t necessarily sting the ball off Carrasco, as most of the hits against him were...

Player Meter: Pitchers, September 19-25

Benny Sieu-USA TODAY Sports A quick review of how the Mets’ pitchers fared over the past week. Last week was one of the better weeks of the season for the Mets’ pitching staff. This week is a bit more of a mixed bag. Obviously the most unexpected thing is the down arrow for Jacob deGrom, which is something that I don’t think I’ve ever done on a pitching meter before. Carlos Carrasco and Taijuan Walker also both had mediocre starts this week, but Max Scherzer was unhittable in his first week back from the injured list and Chris Bassitt was excellent as well....

The Mets have a tough decision to make when it comes to their postseason rotation

The Mets have a tough decision to make when it comes to their postseason rotation

Photo by Sarah Stier/ The Mets have a clear top three, but whether Carlos Carrasco or Taijuan Walker will fill the role of the fourth starter in the postseason remains an open question. Although the outcome of the final eight games of the regular season will still yet determine the winner of the NL East, the Mets have punched their ticket to the postseason for the first time since 2016. With the roster mostly healthy heading into October (I am knocking on every piece of wood in my apartment as I type these words), there will be a few decisions to be made at the...

Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports A quick review of how the Mets’ pitchers fared over the past week. It was a mixed bag for the Mets’ rotation this week, with Chris Bassitt putting forth one mediocre start and one excellent one, Jacob deGrom striking out the world, but not keeping runs off the board in the way we are used to, David Peterson putting up a stinker, and Carlos Carrasco and Taijuan Walker continuing to be very solid at the back end of the rotation. The bullpen, however, had a fantastic week. Especially notable was the work of Joely Rodríguez, who had perhaps...
