Hampson was 4-2 with a 2.13 ERA and two saves in 28 appearances with Buffalo, and lefty batters are hitting .218 against him this season. Hampson, 32, has a […]

Dickey Loses Cock Fight As Fowl Yankees Take Series 6-5

Think I could have crammed anymore chicken references into that title? Bottom line was this game was full of disappointments despite an amazin’ comeback by the Mets that was overshadowed by a night to be forgotten by R.A. Dickey, Miguel Batista and the entire ballclub. R.A. Dickey took the hill as one of the most […]

Mets Matters: Francisco’s Injury Means Only Five Relievers In The Pen

One of the things I’d like to try on a regular, if not daily basis, is a Mets’ oriented notebook. There’s so much going on that I don’t want any of it to get by the boards.

Collins Gambled And Lost With Chris Young

That’s ZACK WHEELER day w/ B-Mets. Heard zero promotion chatter though. We actually came to that same conclusion a couple of weeks ago when we pegged Collin McHugh […]
