Braves Pummel Hefner And Mets In 11-3 Bashing

The Mets (65-74) lost to the Braves (80-60) by the score of 11-3 on Saturday evening at Citi Field. Apparently, Kris Medlen is not beatable. (How the hell do you win 19 straight games under one pitcher?). He did, however, lose his no-ER run streak against the Mets. I guess that is a moral victory. But […]

Niese Could Be A Valuable Trade Chip For Mets This Offseason

Andy McCullough of the Star-Ledger believes Mets lefthander Jon Niese could be a valuable trade piece for Sandy Alderson this winter citing that the team is deep in starting pitching and that they may need to deal an established player for multiple prospects in order to improve. Throughout the industry, opposing clubs have taken notice — which […]

Hansel Robles Hurls A 4-0 Shutout As Cyclones Take Game One In NYPL Semi-Finals

Cyclone right-hander Hansel Robles took the hill for the Cyclones on Friday night at MCU Park at Coney Island in the New York Penn League semi-finals opener against Hudson Valley. Robles shocked the crowd, his teammates, and even his manager, as he hurled a complete game four-hit shutout, walking none and striking out ten, to […]

As Good As David Wright Is, He’s Not Chipper Jones

As Good As David Wright Is, He’s Not Chipper Jones

I am a David Wright fan.  I’ve been an ardent supporter of the Mets’ third baseman since his first call-up to the big leagues in 2004.  I’ve seen him produce some of the greatest offensive seasons in franchise history and I’ve seen him make outstanding defensive plays.  I’ve also seen him represent the Mets at […]

Can The Mets Be Next Year’s Orioles?

The Mets are giving us other things to think about lately, such as the New York Giants’ secondary and an inability to put together a running game. Also a chance to lament about another September of non-meaningful games for the Mets. The Mets are mired in fourth place, thinking about how a hot run could […]

Mets Contain Chipper, But Lose Andres Torres And The Game 3-0

The New York Mets lost the opener of their weekend series with the Braves by the score of 3-0 tonight in Citi Field. Jonathan Niese got the start and really deserved a better fate this evening. The lefty allowed just one run, a solo shot by Jason Heyward, on five hits and a walk while striking out […]

Maybe The Mets’ 2012 Season Wasn’t So Bad After All

It was a weird moment when I sat down on Wednesday evening and started thinking. I have been watching baseball since about 2001. I aspire to be a storyteller years from now. Someone who is knowledgeable and respected. But no matter how good the storyteller, and I am not too good yet, one needs material […]

My Thoughts On MLB’s Mets Top 20 Prospects – Part 1

Yesterday, I took at the newly updated Top 20 Mets Prospects list by MLB’s Joey Nowak and Jonathan Mayo. I was very disappointed to say the least, and it didn’t look like much thought was put into it. Some of their choices were way off and hard to justify. Reese Havens at number 8 was laughable, […]

Ike Davis Needs To Hit Leftys And Become A Complete Player

Ike Davis has already overcome a lot in his brief major league career, beginning with an injured ankle that forced him to miss most of last year and a bout of Valley Fever which sapped his strength this season. However, after a dismal start that had some clamoring for him to be sent to the […]
