Forbes released their annual top 50 Most Valuable Professional Sports Franchises today, with the Mets barely making the cut at 49th, the sixth highest baseball team behind the New York Yankees, LA Dodgers, Boston Red Sox, Chicago Cubs and Philadelphia Phillies. The Texas Rangers also barely made the list at 50th. Valuing the franchise at a cool $719 million, that is a huge step up from this past winter in which Forbes put the New York Mets at just $225 […]
Recap: It was simply not a good day for the New York Mets as the Cubs exploded for seven runs off of Jonathon Niese to take the rubber game of the final series prior to the All-Star Break by a final score of 7-0. Niese took the hill going toe to toe with Cubs ace Ryan Dempster and was hit hard from the get-go. Reed Johnson led things off with a single which opened the […]
If there was ever any merit to the concept that clutch hitting doesn’t exist, that “theory” has been completely disproven by these 2012 New York Mets by one lone number. 185. After Thursday night’s incredible 6-5 walk-off victory over the Phillies, that number represents how many times the Mets have scored a run with two outs in the 2012 regular season. That number 185 is the best out of any team in the majors and […]
It was a rough end to an otherwise exceptional series for the New York Mets as the failed to complete the four game sweep of the Dodgers, with poor pitching and sloppy defense being the name of the game as they fell by a lopsided score of 8-3. Dillon Gee got the nod for New York and labored through his outing to say the least. After Scott Hairston gave the Mets an early lead in […]
Most brothers grow up doing almost everything together. They go to school together, hang out in the same circle of friends, and often play the same sports with one another. Be it baseball, football or whatever sport under the sun, said brothers will usually go from little league, to high school, to maybe even collegiate ball playing with or against one another. Most however, can only dream of getting the chance to play with one another at […]
Bobby Parnell’s career with the Mets had been overshadowed by control issues. A kid with great stuff but overthrows and has very little command. A prospect with promise, but had yet to have consistent success as a starter, reliever or closer. He could walk the bases loaded as easily as he could strike out the side. There was no telling nessecarily what Parnell you would get on any given day. That Bobby Parnell seems like a distant memory now. […]
Recap: Coming off an offensive explosion to avoid the sweep against the Chicgo Cubs, the Mets headed West to open up a three game set in LA. This game wasn’t quite as lopsided, but the Mets still did end up with the “W”, taking the opener of the Dodgers series by a final score of 3-2. Chris Young took the hill for his fifth start of the year and had the Dodgers number. Young was perfect […]
Over his six year tenure as general manager of the New York Mets, Omar Minaya made hundreds of acquisitions. Hours of going over stats, phone calls with scouts, negotiations with agents, all in an effort to put the best possible 25 players on the field come Opening Day. Minaya had made some oustanding acquisitions over the years, others; not so great. R.A. Dickey was definitely one of his better ones, but where does that incentive-laden minor league deal that […]
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 talked-about stories in all of sports the past few days. LeBron James and R.A. Dickey hogged most of the airtime […]
