Mets Knock Around Haren Around For Seven Runs In 11-3 Win

Perhaps this is the start of a trend — Wheeler Day will bring us the happiness that Harvey Day did for a little bit and we can all be happy with that. Wheeler took the mound tonight and pitched a solid game against the Nationals, holding them scoreless through five innings and striking out three […]

No Stars To Align

Call me crazy, but at some point a long disappointing season can wear even a die hard fan down. As many of you know, I’m an out of market fan. As such, whenever the Mets visit the district my wife and I make sure to attend at least one game each series. This series will […]

Gorski Demonstrates Pinpoint Control In Dominating Performance Last Night

Masterful. That’s the only way to describe another Darin Gorski pitching gem at NYSEG Stadium last night. Last week’s Eastern League Player of the Week dazzled, staying ahead of hitters and once again causing batter after batter to pop the ball into the air, as he threw seven scoreless innings, one batter above the minimum, […]

Parnell Unlikely To Return This Season, Surgery Still On The Table

In what I can only describe as disappointing, Terry Collins told reporters that Bobby Parnell is not close to returning — and in fact, is not even close to throwing a baseball right now.

Dillon Gee Is Pitching For His Job

The Mets know it. We know it. Hell, he knows it too. When people projected the future rotation for 2014 or 2015, Dillon Gee was never the first name that came to mind. Even Jeremy Hefner heard his name tossed around more because of his experience working out of the pen. Matt Harvey, Zack Wheeler, […]

Davis Goes Deep, Gee Dominates Nationals In 3-2 Win

Dillon Gee put together quite a start tonight for the New York Mets when he baffled the Nationals over nearly eight innings of work. His only blemishes were two solo home runs given up — one in the bottom of the third to Wilson Ramos and another in the bottom of the eighth to Steve […]

Martino: Germen May Get Opportunities To Close

According to Andy Martino, The Mets could use Gonzalez Germen in save situations on the road in order to get him used to high pressure situations. The goal is not to make him a future closer, Martino explains, but to better acclimate him to a seventh or eighth inning role by throwing him into the fire. […]

Does Juan Lagares’ Defense Warrant A Starting Job No Matter What?

Does Juan Lagares’ Defense Warrant A Starting Job No Matter What?

We all know the deal by now: Juan Lagares is pretty good in the outfield. No, scratch that — he’s probably the best defensive center fielder I have seen on the Mets since Carlos Beltran. He takes great routes to balls, accelerates with ease, and packs a cannon for an arm. He’s always been touted […]
