It.s been a busy week for Wilmer Flores… First he has a huge game if the FSL All Star game and is named MVP. Next, he learns that he’s been promoted to Double-A Binghamton and follows that up with a game-winning hit in his last game as a St. Lucie Met. And today came the announcement that he has been named to the MLB Futures Game as one of two Mets, the other being top […]
The Commissioner’s Office announced today that Phillies infielder Freddy Galvis has received a 50-game suspension for testing positive for performance enhancing drugs. The drug of choice was Clostebol, from which the test revealed a metabolite of, resulting in his suspension, effective immediately. Galvis was batting .226 with 15 doubles and 24 RBIs in 58-games for Philadelphia this year. The 22-year old rookie was placed on the DL recently with a back injury prior to the announcement […]
In case you are unaware, R.A. Dickey is having one of the finest seasons in Mets history and currently on one of the best stretches any pitcher has had in the modern era. Among the thousands of pitchers who come and go throughout major league baseball over the years, there isn’t a more fitting player to ascend to such an unheard of level of success in 2012 than R.A. Dickey. We all know Dickey’s story […]
In one giant missed opportunity in which the cross town rival Yankees pulverized the division leading Washington Nationals, the Reds came in and completed the three-game sweep, besting the Amazin’s by a final score of 3-1. Chris Young took the hill for his turn in the rotation, trying to avoid the sweep for New York. He started off the day relatively dominant, putting up goose eggs over the first four frames while allowing only three hits […]
Finishing up the nine-game road trip and being the last time the Amazin’s will have to use the designated hitter (until of course the world series ), the Mets hit early and often despite a bad start by Johan Santana and an iffy ninth to complete the sweep of the Tampa Bay Rays by a score of 9-6. Johan Santana was on the hill to get the sweep for New York, going toe-to-toe with 2011 […]
It may not have been the best performance of the evening, –that accolade belongs to Matt Cain and his perfect game and 14 punchouts– but it was the most dominant performance by a Mets pitcher all season long. R.A. Dickey completed a masterful one-hitter against the Tampa Bay Rays taking 106 pitches to do so while also going 32 2/3 straight shutout frames, trumping Jerry Koosman’s franchise record of 31 2/3 set back in 1973. […]
Whenever a once sub-par team gets off to a surprisingly positive start, the scrutinization of said team comes in droves. Is this team for real? Can they contend with the best baseball has to offer? At one point will they founder and come back to earth? These questions are all we hear until a club either indeed does go belly up, or continues to defy odds, surpassing all expectations and standards set for them the […]
Recap: As has come to be expected of R.A. Dickey as of late, he once again threw up goose eggs and is now within spitting distance of Jerry Koosman’s Mets franchise record of 31 2/3 consecutive shutout innings in a season. Dickey picked up right where he left off coming off his shutout this past Saturday, putting together a 1-2-3 inning in the first with two punchouts. His knuckleball danced as he wheeled and dealed […]
If you haven’t seen comedian Jon Stewart’s reaction to Johan Santana’s no-hitter, I think you’re going to love this video… The Daily Show with Jon Stewart Stewart is a life-long suffering Mets fan just like many of us and he does an outstanding job of sharing his reaction which I’m sure was very similar to many of our own reactions. I’m still on a high from that night…
