The New York Mets will honor the memory of Gary Carter on Opening Day, Thursday, April 5 at Citi Field with his family participating in a special pre-game ceremony prior to the season’s opener against the Atlanta Braves at 1:10 p.m. Carter passed away February 16 after a courageous 10-month battle with brain cancer. Gary’s wife, Sandy, son, D.J., and daughters, Kimmy and Christy, and their families will be on the field during a moment […]
Jayson Stark of ESPN grabbed my attention this morning when he posted this chart showing how Toronto Blue Jays’ phenom Brett Lawrie, stacked up against some of the all time greats with his .953 OPS last season. That’s some pretty amazing company and at 22 years old, Brett Lawrie is ready to explode onto the scene as one of the game’s brightest stars and best offensive players. Since 1900, only a dozen other players have […]
According to Mike Puma of the New York Post, Mike Pelfrey has been dealing with a high ankle sprain for mostly all of Spring Training, Pelfrey told Puma he sprained his right ankle in the offseason, “and then aggravated the injury shortly after camp began”. Pelfrey has been awful this spring and has allowed an alarming 18 runs, 20 hits, and 6 walks in just 9.2 innings. Also, this morning we learned that Pelfrey has a non-guaranteed contract, which […]
You can believe what you want about whether or not Johan Santana will make a triumphant return to the mound on Opening Day for the Mets, and you can hang on to your doubts that he’ll ever be what he once was. But Santana is tuning you out. He’s locked into his own plan and his own vision and whether you believe in him or not hardly matters to him because he believes in himself. […]
It was a great day for Jon Niese and the rest of the Mets this afternoon at Digital Domain Park, as they blanked the Florida Marlins 7-0. Niese faced seven batters in his two innings of work, striking out two and walking one while throwing 19 of 31 pitches for strikes. Niese has been working on developing a changeup this offseason and he really had it working today. Mets manager Terry Collins raved about his performance. […]
Fernando Martinez had a smashing debut with the Astros today in their 10-1 victory over Stephen Strasburg and the Washington Nationals. The former Met prospect doubled on the first pitch he saw as an Astro, but it was his second hit that had Astro fans buzzing as F-mart clobbered a towering three-run homer to left-center against a strong wind. His line for the day was: 2-2, HR, 2B, BB, 3 RBI. Martinez, 23, batted fifth and […]
Caught this quote by David Wright on ESPN who was commenting on whether the Mets should retire Gary Carter’s No. 8. “Sure, why not? It would make sense,” Wright replied when asked if Carter’s number ought to be retired. “I don’t exactly know the numbers of his Mets career off the top of my head. He was obviously in Montreal quite a bit. But he was that missing piece when he got traded over. That’s for […]

It’s time for the Mets Spring Training Comedy Hour! In case you missed it yesterday, Mets reliever Tim Byrdak came darting onto the field at Digital Domain Park dressed as professional wrestling legend, Hulk Hogan. And as you can tell by that hilarious photo, he really did pull it off! It’s amazing the things you can do when you have a blond Fu Manchu mustache, lol. Big League Stew explains the motivation behind it: Believe it […]
