According to Scott Cacciola of the Wall Street Journal, R.A. Dickey declared himself fit to return to the mound for the Mets this week, and he was happy to report that the nail on his right index finger was 100% healthy. This is big news for the Mets, who are relying on Dickey—who owns two of the most important fingernails in baseball—to help bail them out of their early-season malaise. Dickey, a knuckleball pitcher, split his […]
Due to the implications from tonight’s rain out and Thursday’s doubleheader, the Mets may have to use R.A. Dickey on short rest or callup another starter to pitch Sunday’s game. Adam Rubin of ESPN believes that the Mets could send reliever Ryota Igarashi down to the minors and callup starting pitcher Dillon Gee from Buffalo to make the spot start on Sunday. With six games now in a five-day stretch, the Mets will need a spot starter Sunday, if […]
It has been almost 12 years in between pitches as a New York Met for Jason Isringhausen, but last night when he emerged from the bullpen and took the mound, he was one of the lone Mets relievers that got the job done against the Rockies. Isringhausen came into the game with two runners on and the score tied at 4-4, and then registered two big outs to preserve the tie and pitch the Mets out of […]
Jon Heyman of SI.com, reports in his latest column that “there’s growing suspicion” that the Mets will try trade Carlos Beltran, Jose Reyes, Francisco Rodriguez and Mike Pelfrey if they are not in contention before the July 31 trade deadline. There is a growing suspicion around the game that if the Mets are out of it at mid-year, they will look to trade several veterans, possibly including Carlos Beltran, Jose Reyes and Francisco Rodriguez. But there […]
Lost in the ugliness of yesterday’s loss to the Nationals, was a brilliant performance by right-hander Chris Young who pitched a one-hitter through seven innings. Young, who also pitched for GM Sandy Alderson when both were with the San Diego Padres, tossed his second solid effort in a row, and has allowed just two earned runs in 12.1 innings pitched for a 1.46 ERA and even more importantly a .140 BAA. Young has been this […]
Dont bother to answer the question I posed in the title, it’s sort of a trick question intended only to separate the die-hards from the band wagoners. If you believed in this team six or seven days ago, than that couldn’t have possibly changed so quickly and so early into a brand new season… right? Matt Cerrone of MetsBlog, said this morning that he saw three groups or types of Mets fans while at the game […]
The Mets have announced that right-handed reliever Manny Acosta has cleared waivers, and will be assigned to Triple-A Buffalo. With Pat Misch also clearing waivers a week earlier, the Mets manage to hang on to two relievers that will give their bullpen some depth in the minors in case somebody falters or is injured. Another well played hand by Sandy Alderson and his gang.
Last night during the Mets 7-1 win over the Phillies, David Wright delivered a two-run single to put the Mets ahead 2-0 in the third inning. It was Wright’s 90th career game-winning RBI, passing Mike Piazza on the all time list and giving him the most in team history. It was his second game-winning RBI of this season. Wright also registered the 15th four-hit game of his career last night and his first since June 24, 2009 vs. St. […]
