Game Preview: Mets @ Red Sox

The Mets lost to the Red Sox last night and ticked even closer to being eliminated for the season. The Mets lost while the Braves won, dropping their elimination number down six, falling to 7.0 games out of first place. The Mets are only four losses away from guaranteeing a losing season as well.

On top of everything, last night was a come back win for the Red Sox. The Mets had the lead early and additional opportunities but they couldn’t hold the game together. They’ll look to rebound tonight behind Taijuan Walker.

Taijuan Walker has pitched in 28 games and 149.2 innings this year with a 4.27 ERA, 4.45 FIP, 1.169 WHIP and a 93 ERA+. He’s coming off of a start where he allowed two runs over 5.0 innings, in a game where he wanted go back out and pitch in the 6th inning. In his two starts before that, he allowed 11 runs over 10.1 innings. The Red Sox have the following numbers against Walker:

  • Kevin Plawecki 1-1, 2B, BB
  • Kyle Schwarber 3-8, 3 HR, BB, K
  • J.D. Martinez 6-11, 2B, HR, K
  • Jose Iglesias 3-7, 2B
  • Alex Verdugo 1-3, K
  • Xander Bogaerts 1-4,BB, K
  • Christian Vazquez 0-4, BB, K
  • Travis Shaw 0-2, K
  • Rafael Devers 0-3
  • Bobby Dalbec 0-2, K
  • Hunter Renfroe 0-5, 3 K

The Mets bats draw Chris Sale tonight. Sale returned to the mound not too long ago for the first time since 2019. Did you know Sale actually is the all-time career leader in K/W at 5.36? There’s a gold box around it on Baseball Reference. Anyway, so far this year, in six starts and 30.0 innings, Sale has a 2.40 ERA, 4.26 FIP, 1.233 WHIP and a 199 ERA+. Sale had a bumpy start back on the 6th, he allowed five runs, only one earned, over 3.2 innings against the Rays, which is why his WHIP is so high. He bounced back his last time out allowing one run over 5.0 innings from two hits against the Orioles. Sale has the following numbers against the Mets:

  • Francisco Lindor 12-28, 2 2B, HR, BB, 6 K
  • James McCann 7-35, 2 2B, HR, 2 BB, 11 K
  • Javier Báez 1-3, K
  • Kevin Pillar 7-28, 2 2B, 6 K
  • Jonathan Villar 2-18, 12 K
  • Brandon Nimmo 0-1

  • J.D. Davis 0-2, K

Game Preview: Mets @ Red Sox

The season is quickly coming to an end. The Mets winning on Sunday helped them keep their hopes alive a bit longer. With the Braves now winning two games in a row, the Mets chances are continuing to dwindle. Now the Mets have an almost impossible hurdle to jump, 6.0 games back in the division and 7.5 games back in the wild card. The Mets also own an elimination number of eight. To stay on track the Mets will have figure out a way to beat the Red Sox who are 86-65 and have a +1.5 game lead for the second wild card.

Marcus Stroman will get the start for the Mets tonight. Over 31 starts and 169.0 innings this year, Stroman has a 2.88 ERA, 3.27 FIP, 1.118 WHIP and a 138 ERA+. In his last two starts he has allowed three earned runs over 12.1 innings from eight hits and a walk. Stroman has seen an uptick in strikeouts too – 15 in his last two starts. That is his most strikeouts in back to back starts since mid August. He’s had a 3.07 ERA over his last five starts. The Red Sox have the following numbers against him:

  • Kevin Plawecki 2-6, 2 2B, BB, K
  • Hunter Renfroe 1-2, K
  • Travis Shaw 5-17, 2 2B, HR, 2 BB, 3 K
  • Xander Bogaerts 11-36, 2 2B, 2 HE, 2 BB, 8 K
  • Christian Vazquez 7-19, 2B, BB, 3 K
  • Kyle Schwarber 2-5, 2 K
  • Rafael Devers 1-5, BB, K
  • J.D. Martinez 2-11, 2B, BB, 3 K

The Mets bats will get a look at Eduardo Rodriguez tonight. Eduardo has made 28 starts, pitching 142.1 innings, with a 5.00 ERA, 3.46 FIP, 1.377 WHIP and a 95 ERA+. Eduardo has made three starts in September. In two of them, he’s allowed a combined two runs, one earned, over 12.0 innings from ten hits and two walks. In the other start he’s allowed six runs over 3.2 innings from eight hits. The three starts represent a season trend for Eduardo – he’s struggled at home. He has a 4.22 ERA over 17 starts on the road and a 6.32 ERA over 11 starts at home. The Mets have the following numbers against him:

  • James McCann 4-16, 2B, 2 HR, BB, 2 K
  • Kevin Pillar 6-27, 2 2B, 4 K
  • Jonathan Villar 3-15, 2B, BB, 3 K
  • Francisco Lindor 2-11
  • Jose Peraza 0-1

Game Preview: Phillies vs Mets

“Starting to worry about the Mets” – Jon Heyman

The Mets lost their fifth straight game last night as they continued to radically fall out of playoff contention. The Mets are now five games below .500, still are 5.5 games back in the division, and 7.0 games back in the Wild Card. The Mets five game losing streak has come at the same time that the Braves have gone on a four game losing streak and the Phillies on a four game winning streak. In what has become a theme for the last couple of months – the Mets have had chances to make a move and just couldn’t.

Rich Hill gets the start tonight as the Mets get the Sunday Night game for the second week in a row. In 29 games sand 144.0 innings this year, he has a 3.88 ERA, 4.44 FIP, 1.181 WHIP and a 102 ERA+. His numbers as a Met are nearly identical, pitching in 10 games and 48.2 innings with a 3.88 ERA, 4.23 FIP, 1.212 WHIP and a 103 ERA+. Rich Hill started off September dominating in back to back starts, allowing only one run on eight hits over 12.0 innings. His last start was not as dominating – allowing three runs over 5.0 innings against the Cardinals. Tonight is his first start against the Phillies this year, and the Phillies have the following numbers against him:

  • Freddy Galvis 4-14, 3B, 2 K
  • J.T. Realmuto 1-3, 2 K
  • Andrew McCutchen 4-14, 2B, 2 K
  • Bryce Harper 1-4, K
  • Didi Gregorius 0-1, BB, K
  • Jean Segura 0-4, BB, K
  • Brad Miller 0-4, K
  • Matt Joyce 0-2, K
  • Ronald Torreyes 0-2, K

The Mets bats draw Kyle Gibson in the series finale. Gibson was a big trade deadline acquisition for the Phillies. As a Ranger he made 19 starts, pitched 113.0 innings with a 2.87 ERA, 3.75 FIP, 1.177 WHIP and a 152 ERA+. In nine games and 52.0 innings with the Phillies he has a 4.85 ERA, 4.04 FIP, 1.346 WHIP and a 85 ERA+. His downturn has been a more recent phenomenon, starting with a start against the Marlins on September 3rd where he allowed eight runs on eight hits over 5.1 innings. Overall in September Gibson has allowed 15 earned runs from 20 hits and 6 walks over 15.0 innings. Opponents are hitting .323/.382/.565 against him this month. He did face the Mets earlier this year and held the Mets to one run on four hits and four walks over 6.0 innings. The Mets have the following numbers against him:

  • Michael Conforto 5-7, 2B, HR, 2 BB
  • Brandon Nimmo 2-5, 2B, HR, BB, K
  • Kevin Pillar 4-11, 2 2B, HR, 3 BB, 4 K
  • Jonathan Villar 6-14, 2B, BB, K
  • Francisco Lindor 14-40, 2B, 5 BB, 5 K
  • Jeff McNeil 1-5, 2B, K
  • James McCann 6-25, BB, 6 K
  • Pete Alonso 0-5, BB, 2 K

Game Preview: Phillies vs Mets

The Mets chances of making the post season decreased again last night as they lost the opener against the Phillies. The Mets now sit four games under .500, trailing the division by 5.5 games and the Wild Card by 6.0 games. They aren’t mathematically eliminated yet, but it feels like time is slipping for them to make a miracle happen.

The Mets tried to get a rally going late yesterday, scoring two runs in the 8th inning, but it wasn’t enough as they lost another one run game. There’s not much more to say about the subject that hasn’t been said yet – losing games by one run has killed the Mets this season. Hopefully the Mets can make something different happen today.

Carlos Carrasco gets the start for the Mets. Over nine starts and 38.2 innings, Carrasco has a 5.59 ERA, 4.38 FIP, 1.293 WHIP and a 72 ERA+. In his last two starts, Carrasco has allowed six runs, but only three earned, over 10.0 innings from 10 hits and five walks. His last start was the better of the two, allowing two runs from three hits. The four walks cost Carrasco though and he had to leave after 5.0 innings after tossing 96 pitches. As a promising sign – Carrasco has now thrown 90+ pitches in back to back starts. Tonight will be his first start against the Phillies who have the following career numbers against him:

  • Freddy Galvis 1-4, HR, BB, K
  • Jean Segura 5-13, 2B, HR, 3 K
  • J.T. Realmuto 2-4, K
  • Didi Gregorius 3-13, 2B, 2 K
  • Brad Miller 3-11, 2 BB, 2 K
  • Matt Joyce 2-12, 2B, 2 BB, 4 K
  • Bryce Harper 0-4
  • Andrew McCutchen 0-3, 2 K
  • Ronald Torreyes 0-2

Aaron Nola will make his 30th start of the season tonight for the Phillies. In his first 29 starts and 163.0 innings of work, Nola has a 4.58 ERA, 3.41 FIP, 1.123 WHIP, an a 90 ERA+. In the month of September, Nola has allowed 12 earned runs in 14.1 innings of work (three starts) with opponents hitting .288/.323/.475 against him. He has made three starts against the Mets this year, holding them to only four runs in 14.1 innings from 14 hits. He has also struck out an impressive 24 Mets batters in that stretch. The Mets have the following numbers against him:

  • Francisco Lindor 3-6, 2 2B, BB, K
  • Pete Alonso 8-27, 2 2B, 3 HR, 2 BB, 8 K
  • Javier Báez 3-13, 2B, 2 HR, 3 K
  • Brandon Nimmo 8-26, 10 BB, 10 K
  • Dominic Smith 9-34, 6 2B, 13 K
  • Jeff McNeil 7-27, 2B, 3 BB, 8 K
  • Kevin Pillar 3-9, 3 K
  • Jonathan Villar 4-18, 2 2B, 3 BB, 5 K
  • Michael Conforto 7-43, HR, 5 BB, 17 K

Game Preview: Phillies vs Mets

The Mets had a golden opportunity this week to close the wild card race against the Cardinals. Instead the Mets got swept, fell below .500 and the season is in major jeopardy.

Tonight they welcome the Phillies to Queens and this is the make or break series of the season for the Mets. If they can sweep the Phillies, then they can keep the hope for the playoffs alive. If the Mets get swept, they will have to overcome a historic sized mountain to make it into the post-season.

Taijuan Walker gets the start for the Mets tonight. Over 27 games and 144.2 innings, Walker has a 4.29 ERA, 4.46 FIP, 1.189 WHIP and a 93 ERA+. September has been ugly for Walker – he’s allowed 11 earned runs off 12 hits and four walks in 10.1 innings of work. This will be his fifth start against the Phillies season. In his previous four starts he has allowed nine runs from 17 hits and six walks over 21.1 innings – a 3.80 ERA. The Phillies have the following career numbers against Walker:

  • J.T. Realmuto 2-6, HR, K
  • Ronald Torreyes 3-7, 2 2B, K
  • Jean Segura 3-8, HR, K
  • Bryce Harper 2-12, HR, BB, 2 K

Wheeler has made 29 starts, pitching 195.1 innings (league leading) with a 2.86 ERA, 2.67 FIP, 1.019 WHIP and a 144 ERA+. He also leads the league in strikeouts (225), complete games (3), and complete game shut outs (2). After Wheeler threw a complete game shutout against the Mets in August, he had a rough go of it for four starts, allowing 21 runs, 19 earned, over 26.2 innings. Since then he has made two starts, allowing only one run over 12.2 innings. Overall this season he has faced the Mets four times, allowing only seven runs over 29.1 innings (2.15 ERA) while striking out 31 batters. The Mets have the following numbers against Wheeler:

Game Preview: Cardinals vs Mets

The Mets had an opportunity last night to close the gap in the division race and the wild card race – and they couldn’t seize it.

The Mets lost in extra innings in a back and forth affair with the Cardinals. The Mets and Cardinals swapped the lead a few times and the Mets were able to navigate miscues that gave up the lead when they tied it in the 9th. After a silent 10th inning for both teams, the Cardinals scored three times in the 11th and the Mets only scored twice. With the Cardinals widening the gap in the Wild Card race, tonight’s game becomes a must win for the Amazin’s.

Tylor Megill gets the start tonight for the Mets. In 15 starts and 77.2 innings this year, Megill has a 4.06 ERA, 4.26 FIP, 1.197 WHIP and a 98 ERA+. He’s coming off of a strong start against the Yankees where he allowed two runs from four hits and a walk over 7.0 innings. It was the second time in three starts that Megill allowed two runs or less and his third time in his last five starts. This will be Megill’s first start against the Cardinals and has not faced anyone on their roster while they were with other teams.

The Mets are facing Jon Lester! A long time member of the Cubs, Lester signed with the Nationals this off-season and was traded as part of the fire sale at the end of July. This season he has made 24 starts and pitched 119.1 innings with a 4.75 ERA, 5.42 FIP, 1.542 WHIP and a 83 ERA+. He’s made eight starts with the Cardinals totaling 44.0 innings posting a 4.30 ERA, 5.41 FIP, 1.455 WHIP and a 90 ERA+. In his last four starts he has allowed only five runs over 23.2 innings from 17 hits and 10 walks, a 1.90 ERA. Lester has faced the Mets only once this season, allowing two runs from seven hits over 6.0 innings. The Mets have the following numbers against him:

  • J.D. Davis 1-3, HR
  • Javier Báez 1-3, HR, K
  • James McCann 8-16, 2 2B, 2 HR, 5 K
  • Michael Conforto 2-6, HR, 3 BB, 2 K
  • Francisco Lindor 5-16, HR, 2 BB, 3 K

Game Preview: Cardinals vs Mets

The Mets entered last night’s game trailing 3.0 games for the Wild Card and chasing the Cardinals.

After the storm and the loss, they are now 5.5 games out of first in the division and 3.5 games out of the Wild Card. The Mets season is starting to fully slip away making tonight’s game a must win.

Last night the Mets offense just fell silent, getting only six hits and scoring no runs. Rich Hill had an average start, allowing three runs over 5.0 innings, but later in the game Yessny Díaz allowed four runs in his one inning of relief putting the game out of reach.

Marcus Stroman looks to put the Mets back on track tonight. Over 30 starts and 163.0 innings this season, Stroman has a 2.87 ERA, 3.35 FIP, 1.129 WHIP and a 138 ERA+. He’s coming off of a strong start against the Marlins, allowing one run over 6.1 innings, from four hits and no walks. In his last four starts Stroman has a 3.09 ERA over 23.1 innings.

Game Preview: Cardinals vs Mets

The Mets welcome the Cardinals to Citi Field with a new goal – chasing the wild card! For a while the wild card felt like a pipe dream, that it would go to the Dodgers/Giants and the Padres. But as the Padres have faded an opening for the Wild Card has opened up.

The Mets remain five games back in the division race, but after last night’s win they are now only three games out of the wild card. There are a lot more teams to leap frog, and one of them is the Cardinals! The Mets have a direct opportunity to close the gap between the teams this week.

The Mets are also coming off of an exciting series win. The Mets beat the Yankees after a back and forth affair last night thanks to Francisco Lindor’s greatest game as a Met. Lindor hit three homers last night with 5 RBI’s. Hopefully the Mets can ride that momentum through the end of the season.

Rich Hill is on the mound tonight. Over 28 games and 139.0 innings this year he has a 3.82 ERA, 4.41 FIP, 1.165 WHIP and a 101 ERA+. His numbers as a Met are better than his season numbers – over nine games and 43.2 innings he has a 3.71 ERA, 4.10 FIP, 1.168 WHIP and a 108 ERA+. In his last two starts he has allowed one run over 12.0 innings from eight hits and two walks while striking out 12 batters. The Cardinals have the following career numbers against him:

  • Paul Goldschmidt 9-19, HR, 2 BB, 2 K
  • Nola Arenado 3-8, HR, 3 K
  • Matt Carpenter 1-3, BB
  • Paul DeJong 1-6, BB, K
  • Yadier Molina 1-12, 3 BB, K
  • Tyler O’Neill 0-2
  • Harrison Bader 0-5, 2 K
  • Tommy Edman 0-2, K

The Mets draw the long time Cardinal Adam Wainwright tonight. This season Adam has made 28 starts pitching 184.1 innings with a 2.98 ERA, 3.51 FIP, 1.025 WHIP and a 129 ERA+. He also leads the league with three complete games. In his last start he allowed four runs over 8.1 innings from seven hits. Before that he pitched 36.1 innings over five games allowing only four runs, three earned, which is an ERA over 0.74. Adam struggled against the Mets back in May allowing five runs on seven hits and three walks over 5.2 innings. The Mets have the following career numbers against him:

  • Pete Alonso 3-5, 2 2B, BB
  • J.D. Davis 1-2, 2B
  • Michael Conforto 1-7, HR, 4 BB, K
  • Kevin Pillar 3-10, HR
  • Jeff McNeil 1-4, BB, K
  • Jonathan Villar 3-20, 3 BB, 6 K

Game Preview: Yankees vs Mets

The Mets and Yankees play the rubber game for a National televised game tonight after the Mets couldn’t capitalize yesterday and lost 8-7.

The Mets started out rough yesterday thanks to a 5-run second inning for the Yankees. After that fairly major setback, Walker was able to settle in and keep the Yankees off the scoreboard. The Mets bats were able to claw back in and took the lead 6-5 before extending it to 7-5. But then the Yankees started to rally, eventually took the lead 8-7 and despite getting additional runners on base, the Mets could not bring them in.

Carlos Carrasco gets the start for the Mets tonight. Over eight games and 33.2 innings he has a 5.88 ERA, 4.50 FIP, 1.277 WHIP and a 68 ERA+. In his last start he allowed four runs but only one was earned over 5.0 innings from seven hits and a walk. In his last three starts he has allowed nine runs, six earned, over 17.1 innings which is a 3.12 ERA. This will be Carrasco’s first start against the Yankees this year and the Yankees have the following career numbers against him:

  • Anthony Rizzo 3-4, 2B, HR, BB
  • Joey Gallo 2-6, 2 HR, BB, 2 K
  • Brett Gardner 6-22, 2B, 3B, 5 BB, 6 K
  • Andrew Velazquez 1-3, K
  • Rougned Odor 3-11, 2B, 4 K
  • Aaron Judge 0-2, BB, 2 K
  • Giancarlo Stanton 0-1, K

After the game last night, Aaron Boone declined to formally name a starter for tonight’s game. he did say that Andrew Heaney and Clark Schmidt could both see time tonight on the mound in some capacity – so we’re going to preview both pitchers.

Andrew Heaney was traded from the Angels to the Yankees at the deadline. He has pitched in 27 games and made 23 starts this year totaling 124.1 innings with a 5.86 ERA, 4.78 FIP, 1.311 WHIP and a 76 ERA+. As a Yankee he has pitched in nine games, making five starts with 30.1 innings of work posting a 7.71 ERA, 7.02 FIP, 1.319 WHIP and a 56 ERA+. The main difference between his time with the Angels and Yankees – the long ball. As an Angel Heaney had a 1.5 HR/9 inning. As a Yankee that number has ballooned to 3.3 HR/9. He hasn’t started a game since August 24th where he allowed two runs over 4.0 innings against the Braves.

Clark Schmidt is hoping to make his 2021 baseball debut. Last year he pitched in three games for the Yankees, logging 6.1 innings, allowing five runs on seven hits and five walks (7.11 ERA). Across four minor league levels this year he has gotten into 8 games and pitched 27.1 innings with a 2.96 ERA and 1.244 WHIP. He has spent the most time at AAA ball where he has a 3.00 ERA over 4 games.

Game Preview: Yankees vs Mets

The Mets and Yankees continue their series together tonight on the 20th anniversary of 9/11. The Mets will hold a remembrance ceremony before the game starts with members of the 2001 team in attendance and the Mets will also wear first responder hats (along with an altered white top) on the field.

The game tonight is important to both squads. For the Mets to have a chance at the playoffs, they need to sweep the Yankees this weekend. The Yankees are on a seven game slide and the Blue Jays are now only half a game back in the Wild Card race.

Last night the Mets won 10-3, and pretty much fired on all cylinders. Lindor hit his 14th homer of the season, the Mets had 11 hits overall, Megill looked excellent through 7 innings and the Mets decreased their run differential on the season to -3.

Taijuan Walker takes the mound for the Mets tonight. Over 26 starts and 138.2 innings with a 4.15 ERA, 4.32 FIP, 1.190 WHIP and a 96 ERA+. After a good start against the Giants where Walker held one of the best offenses in the league to three runs, two earned, over 6.0 innings, Walker struggled his last time out against the Nationals. He allowed six runs on six hits with three walks over 4.1 innings, allowing two homers. Home runs has been his weakness of late. He’s allowed 20 on the season and 14 of them since July 24th (6.39 ERA, 43.2 innings). Walker faced the Yankees at the start of July and allowed two runs from two hits and two walks over 5.2 innings. The Yankees have the following career numbers against him:

  • Tyler Wade 1-1, 2 BB
  • Giancarlo Stanton 3-7, 2B, HR, 2 K
  • Aaron Judge 1-5, HR, BB
  • Rougned Odor 6-13, HR, 2 K
  • Gio Urshela 1-3, 2B, K
  • Luke Voit 2-7, HR
  • DJ LeMahieu 6-23, 2B, 4 BB, 5 K
  • Joey Gallo 1-4, K
  • Gleyber Torres 0-2, 2 BB
  • Brett Gardner 1-7, K
  • Anthony Rizzo 0-7, BB, 2 K
  • Gary Sanchez 0-8, BB, 2 K

The Mets bats will get a look at Corey Kluber tonight. Kluber has made 12 starts and pitched 61.0 innings this year with a 3.69 ERA, 4.06 FIP, 1.279 WHIP and a 115 ERA+. He’s recently rejoined the rotation after missing significant time with a shoulder injury from the end of May to the end of July. Since returning, Kluber has allowed seven runs on nine hits over 7.2 innings. The Mets have the following career numbers against Kluber:

  • Michael Conforto 2-3, 2 2B
  • Kevin Pillar 2-8, 2B, HR, 3 K
  • Jonathan Villar 1-7, K
  • James McCann 0-17, 2 BB, 8 K
