Jon Niese took the hill for his second start of the year going up against the Phillies sophomore hurler Vance Worley, who has handled the Mets relatively well in his breif career, but not today. As Worley delivered his first pitch of […]
July 12th, 2011: Mets Trade Francisco Rodriguez To The Milwaukee Brewers July 27th, 2011: Mets Trade Carlos Beltran To The San Francisco Giants December 6th, 2011: Jose Reyes Signs With the Miami Marlins for six years and $106-million These three moves alone were supposed to plunge the Mets into full-on rebuilding mode, into the basement of the National League, yet here we are four games into the season, and the Amazin’s are not only in […]
Recap: It was a beautiful day for baseball as the Mets completed their 3-game sweep over the Bravos with a 7-5 victory. Jon Niese started off the Easter Sunday matinee dealing, as he took a no-hit bid into the seventh before hitting trouble.

Dickey took the hill for his first start of the season, and helped the Mets to their second win of the season in as many games.

Dickey went toe-to-toe with Met-killer Jair Jurrjens. The game got off to a bad start […]

Hairston will start against left handed pitching while Nieuwenhuis will be penciled in against the righties while Andres Torres recovers from his strained calf that he re-injured in the 7th inning of the Mets Opening Day game Thursday. That creates a short term schedule of Kirk today, Monday and Wednesday, and Hairston filling in Sunday and Tuesday. A […]

I know this is a little late coming, but I wanted to pass along this quote from the recently-released Mets prospect Eric Niesen. After the positive feedback that was received in response to my interview with Niesen this past summer, I asked him to give us a few parting words as he leaves the Mets organization: I just wanted to tell everyone thanks for the support over the years that I was with the Mets, […]
In Spring Training of 2010, the Mets were coming off of a season of a horrific pileup of injuries. Virtually every starting position player suffered some sort of injury except for the 24-year old Daniel Murphy who put together a breakout year. The age of Carlos Delgado around the bag at first had come to a close and a new era was beginning. It appeared after many positional changes for Murphy, that he had found […]
