The Mets were hoping for big things from Chris Young when they signed the right-hander to an incentive laden one-year deal in the offseason, and he gave them just that only most of his heroics were at the plate and not on the mound. Chris Young came up in the the third inning and singled off southpaw Cole Hamels, then after the Mets batted around, he came up again and lined a broken-bat single to drive in a […]
I wanted to update this Pedro Feliciano/Brian Cashman post now that Mets pitching coach Dan Warthen had a chance to weigh in, as did Feliciano himself. Warthen actually got a kick out of Cashman’s comments that he “abused” Feliciano and sort of mocked him. “They didn’t know that when they signed him? That was part of the reason we decided to not re-sign him — because we knew we had used him 270-some times in the […]
Anthony DiComo of Mets.com says that we may be looking at the end of the Mets Dynamic Duo, Jose Reyes and David Wright, and the possibility that they may not even last the season together is very real and distinct. But now, nearly 10 years after their first encounter, the left side of the infield seems destined to split. Wright is under contract in New York for two more years with an option for […]
Things looked like they were about to get out of hand for young Jon Niese in the first inning of Saturday’s game against Marlins. He was quickly greeted with a leadoff single by Chris Coghlan and after a double by the always dangerous Hanley Ramirez, it was quickly runners on second and third with one out with cleanup hitter Gabby Sanchez at the plate. Four straight pitches out of the strike zone and the bases […]
If you were watching the Opening Night loss to the Marlins on SNY Friday night, you may remember seeing a quick clip of a “Family Guy” video that poked fun at the Mets after the game. According to the New York Times, it was not planned and was simply a prank by an employee of SNY. This was the video: Andrew Fegyveresi, an SNY spokesman, said, “It was a very poor decision by an individual employee […]
Andy McCullough of the Star-Ledger says that the April 5-7 series against the Philadelphia Phillies, is one of the three biggest series of the 2011 season for the Mets. After dealing with the Marlins’ impressive staff on the opening weekend of the season, the Mets head to Philadelphia to get a first look at the Phillies’ stacked rotation — including Cy Young winner Roy Halladay (scheduled for Wednesday) and postseason stud Cliff Lee (slated to pitch Thursday). […]
According to Adam Rubin of ESPN New York, the New York Mets have officially placed left fielder Jason Bay on the disabled list with a strained left rib-cage muscle. The DL stint, according to Rubin, could be backdated into spring training, meaning Bay would only need to miss the season’s first seven games. He would be eligible to return April 9. “I took one swing and had a little bit of a sting or a stab in […]
I spent most of last evening reading the local sports pages on the internet when I happened upon an article of particular interest in the New York Times by David Waldstein. It was a well written synopsis of the how the 2010 Mets morphed into the 2011 Mets. Before I get to that, first a bit of a preamble. You know one of the things I have to constantly repeat time and time again to […]
