SNY and the Mets have finally fixed that annoying score bug that has led to so much confusion regarding the score during Mets telecasts. I don’t know if this bothered you as much as it did me, but on many occasions I found myself getting faked out with the score because my mind couldn’t get past the fact that the number in the middle was the inning. Here is the the one they started the [...]
According to Mike Puma of the New York Post, R.A. Dickey would like the front office to pick up his $5 million dollar option for 2013 and begin negotiating a contract extension, saying: “I like it here and I want to be here. I feel like the team is moving in the right direction, and I want to be a part of the solution. Now it’s up to them. If I’m in their plans, [a contract extension] is [...]
I feel sorry for all those saps who claimed they wouldn’t go see or in some cases watch this team because of some stupid protest against the Mets owners. What about all the princes and paupers who predicted doom and gloom and falling attendance, and the seers and prophets who refused to give this Mets team a chance? What a bunch of whiny, uninformed, poor excuse for Met fans they turned out to be. Proud to be [...]
In eleven save opportunities, the Mets bullpen now has five blown saves. That’s not a typo – Five blown saves to go with six saves for the season so far. Every time that bullpen gate opens, no matter who emerges from it, the odds that they will protect any size lead is a little bit better than 50/50. A revamped bullpen you say? The Mets saw fit to expend 75% of their available $14 million [...]
I was holding out hope that he could do it, but Kirk Nieuwenhuis was beaten out for the NL Rookie of the Month award by Arizona Diamondbacks left-hander Wade Miley, who went 3-0 with a 1.29 ERA in April. Nieuwenhuis led all major league rookies with a .325 batting average and 26 hits in April. He was second in runs scored (11), tied for third with two home runs and fourth with eight RBI. Nieuwenhuis’ .325 batting average is the [...]
Congratulations to Flushing’s own Mr. Met on being named the most popular mascot in sports by Forbes Magazine. The “veteran, kid-friendly mascot”, they say, “has taken on a greater role during the Mets’ troubled years”. Ain’t that the truth? Mr. Met beat out the Phillie Phanatic who finished in second place in their rankings. In other news, Metsblog named the Mets’ letter “M”, the “Best M in Baseball”. Read more here.
After tonight’s series win against the Rockies, the Mets filed out of the clubhouse one by one dressed in western garb as they head down to Houston, Texas for the start of a three game showdown with the Astros. Here are a few pictures courtesy of the Mets. Ruben Tejada & Dillon Gee look like outlaws. Jon Niese is heading to the saloon for some whiskey. Don’t mess with Ike Davis, the fastest gun in [...]
I was certain heading into last night’s contest that first baseman Ike Davis had bid farewell to his week and a half long slump to start the season. His 5-18 spurt with three homers and six rib-eye steaks gave me hope that the worst was behind him and that it would be smooth sailing from here on in. Then he goes 0-for-5 last night against the Giants and picks up two more strikeouts to add to the [...]
Last night, Jason Bay had a coming out party of sorts as he not only belts his second home run of the season and is showing some signs he may be ripe for a rebound, but he also made a sensational leaping catch to rob Jack Wilson of a home run in the fifth inning. “It’s one of those things, it’s almost like tunnel vision. I know I’m getting close to the wall, I know it’s there, [...]
