On a day billed as Super Tuesday, the Real Deal and the Wheel Deal became running mates that Mets fans hope to support for years to come. Just hours after Matt Harvey held the Braves hitless into the seventh inning, Zack Wheeler kept Atlanta off the scoreboard through six frames, picking up the victory in his much-anticipated major league debut, as the Mets defeated the Braves, 6-1, to take both ends of a day-night doubleheader [...]
I became a Mets fan on Memorial Day 1981. My father wasn’t feeling well that day so we had to cancel our annual Memorial Day barbecue, leaving eight-year-old me to find something to do since I was home from school that day. My ill father was in bed all day, so I decided to lay back on his comfortable-beyond-words recliner and watch TV. The last person who watched the tube had left it on Channel [...]
Unless you’ve been spending the first few months of the 2013 season under a rock, you know that the Mets are off to a less-than-spectacular start. Through 56 games, the Mets have a disappointing 23-33 record. The only teams in baseball that are more than ten games under .500 are the Milwaukee Brewers, Houston Astros and Miami Marlins. One of the reasons for the Mets’ poor start is their inability to hit. New York ranks [...]
With the Mets set to honor Yankees closer Mariano Rivera before Tuesday’s game at Citi Field with a tribute video before the game and likely a large check for his favorite charity, MMO’s Ed Leyro had already posted the perfect tribute video for Big Mo back in March. – Joe D. With Mariano Rivera announcing his retirement and making the 2013 season his official farewell tour, major league teams can now begin to prepare their [...]
I’m sure you’re looking at the title of this post, scratching your head and wondering what the fudge I’m talking about. Well, the Ike Davis currently playing for the Mets is not the first player named Ike Davis to suit up for a major league team. And with the way the 21st century Ike Davis is playing, the 20th century Ike Davis might soon be the better of the two Ikes. Isaac Marion Davis (better [...]
On Sunday, Bobby Parnell notched his sixth save of the season, recording the final three outs of the Mets’ 4-3 victory over the Cubs. With the save, Parnell now has 20 in his six-year career with the Mets. Now that may not seem like much, but it does give Parnell a special title. Tell me, my fellow Mets fans. Do you know which homegrown Met has the most saves in team history? That would be [...]
There has been much talk and speculation recently about the possible demotion of Ike Davis to the minors. Such discussion is certainly warranted considering Davis’ performance over the first 40 games of the season. The Mets’ struggling first baseman is hitting .156 with four homers and nine RBI. His on-base percentage is an unhealthy .238 and his .259 slugging percentage is lower than what his batting average should be. His 2013 numbers through 40 games [...]
Since being promoted to the big leagues on July 26, 2012, Matt Harvey has lived up to, and at times, exceeded expectations. The former first round draft pick has become one of the toughest pitchers to hit in the National League since his debut and his confidence is on par with that of a veteran pitcher – a pitcher such as Tom Seaver, Jerry Koosman and Dwight Gooden, to name a few. With that in [...]
Updated by HoJo on 4/16 Mets manager Terry Collins said he did not plan to disrupt the throwing schedule for Matt Harvey regardless of postponements in Denver. So Harvey continues to be in line for Friday’s game against the Washington Nationals, who are expected to start Stephen Strasburg in the series opener at Citi Field. Original Post by Ed Leyro on 4/15 Matt Harvey almost made history on Saturday for the Mets, coming within seven [...]
