Mets bear uncanny resemblance to 2015-16 Cubs

Mets bear uncanny resemblance to 2015-16 Cubs

Mets-Cubs. Remember when that was a thing? Remember, before Andrew Friedman finished turning the Dodgers into Major League Baseball’s preeminent superpower, when the National League’s Big Apple and Windy City representatives served as the two guinea pigs in a classic baseball debate? This is no longer a thing, which explains the lack of fanfare as...

Player Meter: Pitchers, April 12-18

Isaiah J. Downing-USA TODAY Sports A quick review of how the Mets’ pitchers fared over the past week. The Mets went 5-1 this week mostly on the back of their pitching—notably their starting pitching, which has been excellent. Jacob deGrom and Marcus Stroman have been elite, Taijuan Walker put forth another solid performance, and David Peterson had a bounce back week. The bullpen has looked much improved from last week as well and Robert Gsellman and Trevor Hildenberger both had positive 2021 debuts. The one black mark on the Mets’ pitching staff came in the...

Michael Conforto’s strong weekend a positive Mets sign after choppy start

CHICAGO – Michael Conforto climbed to the Mendoza Line over the weekend, hardly a cause for celebration, but it at least represents something of a start for the outfielder. In a Mets lineup that has underperformed, averaging 3.36 runs through 11 games, Conforto’s slow start has been noticeable. He still hasn’t homered and will bring...

Player Meter: Position players, April 12-18

Isaiah J. Downing-USA TODAY Sports A quick review of how the Mets’ position players fared over the past week. Despite Mother Nature doing her best to continue to wreak havoc on the Mets’ schedule, the Mets did manage to play six of their seven scheduled games last week. However, four of them came in the form of doubleheaders. The Mets went 5-1 this week, sweeping the Phillies and then taking two out of three from the Rockies, which puts them atop the NL East standings at 7-4 overall. The offense posted a decidedly average 102 wRC+ as a team over the past week, which...

Tracking Jacob deGrom’s 2021 season: Start #3

Tracking Jacob deGrom’s 2021 season: Start #3

Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports deGrom has been outstanding to start the year. Through his first three starts of 2021, Jacob deGrom has somehow looked even better than he ever did before, a remarkable feat considering that he had already established himself as the best pitcher in baseball. deGrom’s numbers to start this year are downright silly: 20.0 innings, 35 strikeouts, 3 walks, 0.45 ERA, 1.41 FIP, 15.75 K/9, 48.6 K%, and an 872 ERA+. During his start on Saturday, deGrom struck out nine batters in a row, coming up one shy of Tom Seaver’s record of ten in a row. And...

Mets get back on track with a wild win over the Rockies

Photo by Matthew Stockman/ The offense was stagnant once again but they did just enough to eke out a win. One day after splitting a doubleheader, the Mets needed a win to take the series from the lowly Rockies. The Mets sent Marcus Stroman to the mound, while the Rockies countered with Antonio Senzatela. Offense was once again hard to come by, with both pitchers at the top of their game, but the Mets did just enough to walk away with the win. They scratched the first run across in the second inning after back-to-back hits by Pete Alonso and Michael Conforto set up...
