Mets Offense Fails To Back Up Dickey In 5-3 Loss

The Mets (65-77) lost to the Nationals (88-54) by the score of 5-3 on Tuesday evening at Citi Field. I was pretty disappointed tonight. It was just a bad display of Mets baseball.

Despite A Stellar Effort From Dickey, Mets Fall 3-1 To Rockies

At this stage of the game, all the Mets have left are moral victories. One of those moral victories would be finishing the season at .500, another would be to finish above the Phillies and Marlins. Both of those goals took a hit with tonight’s 3-1 loss to the Rockies at Citi Field. With the […]

While he had pitched well in the previous two seasons, nobody was expecting a sub-3.00 ERA, thirteen wins and an All-Star appearance.

LaRussa Says Matt Cain, Not R.A. Dickey, Will Start All-Star Game
