Cardinals Shut Out Mets

On Monday the Mets shut out the Cardinals. Well on Tuesday, the Mets returned the favor, failing to score any runs in a loss to the Cards. Dillon Gee did not allow a hit through three innings, but after a walk and two singles to lead off the fourth, suddenly the Cardinals had the bases […]

Matt Harvey Responds to Twitter Nonsense

Matt Harvey Responds to Twitter Nonsense

Matt Harvey responded Tuesday afternoon to the uproar over a Twitter photo that resulted in Harvey deleting his account. He stopped well short of an apology. To update, in the morning Harvey posted a picture of himself to mark the six-month anniversary of his Tommy John surgery. The problem was that the picture was of […]

Matt Harvey, Mets Now Battle Over Twitter Photo

Matt Harvey, Mets Now Battle Over Twitter Photo

Matt Harvey and the Mets apparently have a new problem, this one over a photo Harvey posted on Twitter. This will all end badly, with Harvey leaving the team as soon as he possibly can. It all started Tuesday morning when Harvey noted on his Twitter account that is it the six month anniversary of […]

Mets Camouflage Uniforms Must Go!

The Mets camouflage uniforms were unveiled their Monday night, and it should be the last time we ever see them. Unfortunately, it will not. The Mets plan to wear these hideous things on five more “Military Mondays” this season. It is a noble and worthy cause, but the execution has failed. The jerseys are actually […]

Jenrry Mejia Brilliant, Mets Blank Cardinals

Jenrry Mejia Brilliant, Mets Blank Cardinals

I don’t know what’s Spanish for “blister shmister,” but whatever it is, that’s what Jenrry Mejia was probably saying Monday night. In his first start since a blister forced him from a game last week, Mejia was brilliant Monday night as the Mets shut out the Cardinals. The Mets got on the board with a […]

The Enigma that is Eric Young

Eric Young is an enigma. On one hand, he is a speedy spark plug for a team that so desperately needs one. On the other hand, he is a strikeout machine. The two usually do not go together, which is why he is so puzzling. It seems like Young has led off every game for […]

Bobby Abreu to Join Mets

Bobby Abreu to Join Mets

The Mets announced on Twitter Sunday evening that Bobby Abreu would join the team in time for Monday’s game against the Cardinals. The 40-year-old Abreu is batting .395 with a homer and nine RBIs in 15 games for Las Vegas. With Ike Davis no longer on the team, the Mets apparently felt the need for […]

Roles Change for Curtis Granderson, Jose Valverde

A reasonably major shakeup for the Mets on Sunday, as they have removed both Curtis Granderson from the cleanup spot and Jose Valverde as the closer. Granderson will bat second Sunday against the Braves. The Mets big winter acquisition is batting just .140 with a homer and four RBIs this season. He has also struck […]

Braves Hold Off Mets

After managing just one hit Friday night, the struggling Mets offense was able to collect 13 on Saturday. But still, their late charge was not enough and they fell to the Braves for the second straight game. Much as he seems to do every game, Eric Young led off the first inning with a walk. […]

Notes on Ike Davis Trade

The Mets traded Ike Davis to the Pirates for two players just before Friday night’s game against the Braves. It was a move that should have been made months ago; a team does not need two starting left-handed hitting first basemen who struggle to hit. Whether or not they traded the right guy is a […]

Mets No-Hit for 7.2 Innings, Lose to Braves

It is among the toughest decisions a manager will ever have to make — whether to remove a pitcher who is in the middle of throwing a no-hitter. Well, Fredi Gonzalez did it Friday night against the Mets, taking former Met Aaron Harang out of the game after seven no-hit innings. The bullpen lost the […]

Reports: Ike Davis Traded to Pirates

Tweets from multiple baseball writers Friday evening say the Mets have agreed to trade Ike Davis to the Pirates. The  Mets are expected to get one or two prospects in return. The Pirates have been linked to Davis since the off-season, but Sandy Alderson apparently finally pulled the trigger on Friday. Davis is hitting .208 […]

Mets Won’t Sign Joel Hanrahan

The Mets were reportedly among “about 18″ teams which watched reliever Joel Hanrahan throw down in Tampa on Thursday. I hate to break it to you, but the Mets will not be signing the former top closer. Hanrahan underwent Tommy John surgery last May, so he should be ready to come back soon. He reportedly […]

Photos: Charting Mets Uniforms Through Baseball Cards

Much to my surprise, the article I wrote a couple of weeks ago about the Mets having too many uniforms was one of my most popular ever. Who knew fans were so passionate about Mets uniforms? I wanted to follow it up with a history of Mets uniforms, but since I am neither a historian […]

Mets Talk on “The Phil Naessens Show”

On our weekly update on the Mets on  “The Phil Naessens Show,” Phil said he is “happy” with the Mets thus far this season. I would not go that far. Enjoy:

Did Monkeys Make Mets Schedule?

So there are five teams here in sunny California, and oddly the Mets will visit each of them in their home parks this season. So the Mets can knock those off in two trips, maybe three tops, right? Nope. The Mets will make four trips to the Golden State over six months, leading to the […]

Dillon Gee Sharp, Mets Sweep Diamondbacks

Dillon Gee Sharp, Mets Sweep Diamondbacks

Dillon Gee took a perfect game into the fifth inning as the Mets beat the Diamondbacks Wednesday afternoon to sweep the series in Arizona. The Mets got on the scoreboard first when Anthony Recker hit a solo home run in the second. It was Recker’s second homer of the season. He always seems to do something […]

John Lannan Gone, Daisuke Matsuzaka Back

John Lannan Gone, Daisuke Matsuzaka Back

The Mets announced on Twitter Wednesday afternoon that John Lannan has been outrighted to the minors and Daisuke Matsuzaka has been brought up. The news should not be a shock. Lannan has been awful in his first ever attempt to be a reliever. In four innings over five games, Lannan has allowed seven runs for […]

Mets Crush Diamondbacks

Mets Crush Diamondbacks

There was reason for pessimism leading into Tuesday night’s Mets game against the Diamondbacks. Their only reliable hitter, Juan Lagares, was placed on the disabled list before the game with a pulled hamstring. The Diamondbacks starting pitcher, Bronson Arroyo, has always pitched well against the Mets. Well, all the Mets did was put on their […]

Photo: d’Arnaud, Quintanilla Score Together

A funny scene in the Mets big third inning Tuesday night. With Omar Quintanilla on second and Travis d’Arnaud on third, Eric Young singled to left. Quintanilla was off and running, but d’Arnaud got a bad read and actually went back to third before breaking for the plate. The result was that Quintanilla was hot […]

Mets Place Juan Lagares on DL

The Mets will place Juan Lagares on the disabled list and recall Kirk Nieuwenhuis in time for Tuesday night’s game. Unfortunately, we’ve seen this before — a player gets off to a hot start and then gets injured, only to come back without that rhythm. Let’s hope that is not the case this time. Juan Lagares […]

Mets Win; Granderson, Lagares Hurt

Mets Win; Granderson, Lagares Hurt

The Mets beat the Diamondbacks Monday night but it was a costly victory — both Curtis Granderson and Juan Lagares had to leave the game with injuries. With a runner on first in the first inning, Miguel Montero hit a long drive to right. Granderson ran it down, but then he slammed his arm into […]

Terry Collins’s Baffling Mets Lineups

Leading up to the weekend series in Anaheim, all we kept hearing was that the Mets could use the designated hitter, thus they could get Ike Davis and Lucas Duda in the same games to help them make their decision about which player would be part of the future. Instead, Terry Collins hardly played at […]

Photos: Mets Visit Angel Stadium

In a series that include two exciting extra inning games and one blowout, leave it to me to attend the blowout. I was at Sunday’s game at Angel Stadium, watching the Mets play their worst game of the year. Incredibly, it was not the first time I saw a Mets pitcher allow three home runs […]
