After more than a two hour rain delay, the Mets took the rubber game against the A’s with a convincing 4-1 win thanks to a solid effort by Chris Capuano and more timely hitting by Jose Reyes. Game Notes Chris Capuano gave the Mets six shutout innings, before leaving the game with a cramp in his right side, according to Sandy Alderson. Cappy scattered five hits and kept the A’s in check throughout his stint, striking out seven and […]
As my colleague HoJo wrote last week in this post, the New York Mets announced that they have signed 12 draft picks from the 2011 First-Year Player Draft, including the club’s second round selection right handed pitcher Cory Mazzoni from North Carolina State University. According to Jim Callis of Baseball America, the Mets signed Mazzoni for $437,500 which is $77,000 lower than the slot guideline of $514,800. Callis added that sometimes players often cut deals […]
Just got a chuckle out of an article I just read by some guy called Rob Parker of ESPN New York. Our friend (not really), writes that because the Mets have been rebuffed by Jose Reyes, they have just one option; trade him. If the Mets weren’t sure what to do with Reyes — trade him or try to re-sign him — it should be crystal clear now. The Mets must trade Reyes, their All-Star shortstop, for the best […]
Good news from Port St. Lucie where Mets prized pitching prospect Matt Harvey was pulled from starting in the FSL All Star Game. He will be replaced by less heralded, Mets left-hander Darin Gorski. According to MiLB.com, Harvey was scratched because he is scheduled to be promoted to Double-A Binghamton after making one more start for St. Lucie. The Mets 2010 first rounder has won four straight decisions and is 8-2 with a 2.44 ERA on […]
Speaking with reporters at Cii Field before today’s game, Jose Reyes addressed the report by FOX Sports Ken Rosenthal that he may be considering changing agents to Scott Boras. “No chance,” Reyes said, about the possibility of switching agents. “We talked a couple of times on the phone. He’s always tried to get me since the minor leagues, but like I said, I’m happy with my agents.” Original Report 2:00 AM According to Ken Rosenthal […]
Ugh, a walk-off balk and the Mets fall back under .500 after one game. What a punch in the gut. Another one of those days where the Mets snatched defeat from the jaws of victory, but hey you can’t say it wasn’t a hard fought game on both sides. It was actually an exciting contest from start to finish even though we lost. But it’s games like this that build character, and like they’ve done so […]
The New York Mets optioned Dale Thayer to Triple-A Buffalo, after tonight’s 3-2 loss to the Pirates. To replace Thayer on the roster, the Mets recalled D.J. Carrasco. Thayer made four appearances for the Mets, and allowed two runs in four innings for a 4.50 ERA. Carrasco started the season with the Mets but after eight games including one start he posted a 5.91 ERA and was demoted. In nine appearances which included eight starts […]
Terry Collins spoke to reporters before the game last night and said he wants to have Johan Santana come to New York during the next homestand so him and Dan Warthen can watch him pitch. Collins also said it’s more likely the Mets will have to wait until at least late July for Santana’s return. The Mets prized left-hander is recovering from surgery to repair a torn capsule in his left shoulder, and has been throwing off […]
A’s general manager Billy Beane, fired his manager Bob Geren Thursday morning in the midst of a nine-game losing streak, replacing him with former Giants catcher Bob Melvin. Geren, 49, was named the A’s manager on Nov. 17, 2006. He registered a 334-376 (.470) record in four-plus seasons with Oakland, including a 27-36 mark and last-place standing in the American League West this year. Under Geren, who was the best man at Billy Beane’s wedding, […]
