3 Stars Mets Should Target In Offseason

The New York Mets are in desperate need of a retool this offseason. The club was supposed to contend for a playoff bid in 2021, but that has not come to fruition.

Amazin’ Avenue Audio (The Show): Twitter Q&A

This week, we took to the hive of scum and villainy known as Twitter to get some questions for the show.

Welcome to Amazin’ Avenue Audio (The Show), the new/old favorite from Amazin’ Avenue editors Chris McShane and Brian Salvatore.

The curent Mets product is bad, but we all know that. The season is more or less over, but we know that, too. So, we decided to bring the show to the listeners and solicited questions directly from Twitter! Topics discussed include Michael...

Francisco Lindor believes Mets can re-sign Javier Baez this offseason

The 73-79 New York Mets are essentially out of the playoffs race at this point, which is a shame considering they led the NL East division for much of the first half and actually a sizable portion of the second.

Your Thursday morning dose of New York Mets and MLB news, notes, and links.

Meet the Mets

The Mets looked very much like a team playing out the string. Taijuan Walker struggled mightily on the mound, and mixed with some poor defense, the Mets were flat out embarrassed by the Red Sox. The only positive again was Pete Alonso who hit his 35th home run of the year.

Schwarber torments Walker once again as Mets are routed in Boston

David Butler II-USA TODAY Sports

Condolences if you sat through this entire game, which clocked in at just under four hours.

There’s nothing particularly clever to say about tonight’s Mets game. They just went out there and embarrassed themselves against the playoff-bound Red Sox. They were knocked around early and often, and ended up getting swept in the season series after falling 12-5 at Fenway Park. If there is one positive to find from tonight’s defeat, it’s that...

Watch: Chris Sale had Javy Baez so fooled on this slider

Chris Sale is known for his wicked slider. Javy Baez can attest to how dangerous it is.

Final Score: Red Sox 12, Mets 5—Schwarber Strikes Again (and Again...)

David Butler II-USA TODAY Sports

Stop, stop, he’s already dead!

The Mets lost (again) to the Red Sox as Kyle Schwarber had a multi-homer game (again) against Taijuan Walker. It was an ugly, blowout loss as this disappointing season draws to a slow, painful close.

The aforementioned Schwarber hit a solo shot off Walker in the first, and with Boston leading 3-1 in the second, added a three-run bomb for good measure. Walker lasted just two innings, allowing six earned runs as his troubling...

9/22/21 Game Preview: New York Mets at Boston Red Sox

The dim playoff hopes that the New York Mets (73-78) are holding got even dimmer last night. The Mets fell 6-3 to the Boston Red Sox (87-65) last night to reduce their postseason odds to just 0.1 percent, meaning they are far closer to mathematical elimination than making any kind of late push.

Meet the Mets

The Mets lost their first of two games in Boston against the Red Sox on Tuesday night. Marcus Stroman got the start and after escaping trouble through the first four innings, gave up four runs in the fifth inning, as the Mets were unable to keep pace with a probable playoff team in the Red Sox.

Poor baserunning and Boston power lead to Mets defeat

Bob DeChiara-USA TODAY Sports

A big inning was avoided, and the team never quite recovered.

The Mets/Red Sox game last night was a microcosm of the season thus far. It started off looking good, some adversity was overcome, the Mets struck early, and then the wheels fell off. A season of missed opportunities was condensed into 9 innings at Fenway Park in a 6-3 loss.

Marcus Stroman started off strong for the Mets, flashing a good slider and keeping the Sox’s potent offense quiet for the...

Calvin Schiraldi Ain't Walkin' Through That Door

A question for Yankees fans … did you really think the Mets were going to help you tonight? I mean, did you think Bob Stanley was going to come jogging out of the bullpen and throw a wild pitch to Jonathan Villar?

Final Score: Red Sox 6, Mets 3 - Yellow and Blue Sox?

Bob DeChiara-USA TODAY Sports

Stroman falters in Fenway.

It was appropriate that the Red Sox were wearing their yellow and blue uniforms tonight, as their game with the Mets, which they won 6-3, truly felt like a marathon. As games in Fenway Park tends to do, this game dragged on for over three and a half hours, despite their being vey little action outside of a few key moments.

The Mets got on the board first, but some poor base running from Pete Alonso limited the Mets’ big inning to just...

Player Meter: Pitchers, September 13-19

A quick review of how the Mets’ pitchers fared over the past week.

Usually the refrain with these meters is, “Hey, that position player meter may have been painful to look at, but check out how nice the pitching meter is!” This week, that is not the case; the pitching meter is not here to save the day. In fact, it might be even worse than the position player meter. Although the back end of the Mets’ bullpen generally did just fine, it was a...

The regular season is winding down and the New York Mets (73-77) have slim playoff hopes. The Mets did good work to snap a five-game losing streak on Sunday by picking up a win over the Philadelphia Phillies but they will have to essentially run the table to have a shot at making the postseason.

The 2021 minor league season is over (kinda). Long live the 2021 minor league season (kinda).

Welcome to From Complex to Queens, the Amazin’ Avenue podcast focusing on the Mets’ minor league system.

We knew this moment would come eventually. It always does. The 2021 minor league season has come to a conclusion, for the most part. The Syracuse Mets season will continue, but 2021 is over for the Binghamton Rumble Ponies, Brooklyn Cyclones, St. Lucie Mets, and FCL Mets.
