I know many of you don’t put stock into spring stats, so you could just move onto the next post if you are one of those. But for those of you who are interested, here are some interesting notes from the Mets. The New York Mets pitching staff has constructed a 3.86 ERA so far this spring, allowing 94 earned runs in 219.0 innings. That mark is currently the fourth-best this spring among all National […]
Chris Young cemented his spot in the Mets rotation with another solid effort this afternoon against the Florida Marlins who beat the Mets 5-0. Young pitched six shutout innings allowing just four singles and no walks while striking out three batters. He threw 55 of his 80 pitches for strikes. He has allowed just three runs in 20.1 innings pitched this spring and his 1.33 ERA leads all Mets starters. Taylor Buchholz also distinguished himself with […]
“I did a bad job.” Those words uttered by Oliver Perez after a disastrous outing today could be the understatement of the year. Oliver Perez may have thrown is last pitch for the New York Mets today, it was an 86 MPH fastball that capped off an inning that saw him give up four runs on back-to-back homers to right-handed hitters, and then when he finally got to face a left-handed hitter, he walked him on […]

MLBTR posted the following today: The Mets and Pirates strike me as two teams unlikely to contend in 2011. The Nationals, Astros, Diamondbacks, and Padres all made win-now type moves this offseason, but at least a few of these teams will be below .500 on July 31st. Carlos Beltran, Jose Reyes, and Francisco Rodriguez could be big-name trade chips for the Mets if they’re healthy and playing well in July. Sandy Alderson could at least […]
MEJIA TO MINORS The Mets announced via Twitter that they have optioned RHP Jenrry Mejia to minor league camp. They now have 22 pitchers in camp which includes 7 non-roster invitations. REAR VIEW MIRROR: First things first, according to Andy McCullough of NJ.com, Ike Davis is fine after being involved in a car accident this afternoon.

Who’s ready for another chapter in the Oliver Perez saga? According to Andy Martino of the Daily News, the Mets are falling all over themselves over Ollie’s relief stint this weekend in which he pitched to one batter and retired him on seven pitches. Pitching Coach Dan Warthen may now be the only thing standing between the enigmatic southpaw’s release or him earning a spot on the roster as the left-handed specialist to replace Pedro […]
This is kind of a different type of article from Joel Sherman of the NY Post. He of course being the sports writer who wrote that the Mets should just pack it in this season, spare fans the agony, and just have a fire sale. Anyway, he spoke to a veteran scout who summed up certain things in percentages, for example he asks what are the percetanges that Chris Young makes 25 starts or Carlos Beltran has […]
According to Zach Berman of the Star-Ledger, Ronny Paulino will not travel with the team to Disney World to play the Braves this afternoon. Paulino entered the Mets clubhouse a few minutes after 8 a.m. this morning. He was greeted by the few remaining in the locker room after the team bus departed for the Braves’ spring training complex in Lake Buena Vista, including former Marlins teammate Taylor Tankersley. After changing into workout clothing and […]
