Did you hear the one about the comedian and the former first baseman who called a baseball game for the New York Mets? No? Well, come tonight, you will. Tonight’s game against the Detroit Tigers will feature legendary comedian and lifelong Mets fan, Jerry Seinfeld, joining Keith Hernandez and Gary Cohen in the broadcast booth for at least three innings (and maybe more). SNY’s vice president of production, Curt Gowdy, Jr. said the […]
Have you seen the updated vote totals for the National League All-Stars? Apparently, Phillies fans have been stuffing the ballot boxes en masse. According to mlb.com, as of June 15, seven of their eight starters rank in the top five in receiving votes at their respective positions. Only Raul Ibanez (who was hitting .250 with 4 HR and 28 RBI entering last night’s game) failed to rank in the top five, coming in at #8 […]
Do you recognize the baseball player in the photograph to the left? No? Then welcome to the club. The man in the Padres hat is San Diego’s backup centerfielder Chris Denorfia, and he just became the latest player to keep the Mets from finally recording their first no-hitter. Last night, during the second game of the day-night doubleheader between the Mets and the Padres, Chris Denorfia was given the start over regular centerfielder Tony Gwynn, […]
Born on the same day the Mets won their second World Series title, Jonathon Niese pitched like a champion last night against the San Diego Padres. In shutting out the Padres, he allowed only one man to reach base all game, a double to centerfielder Chris Denorfia to lead off the third inning. Niese became the 34th pitcher in Mets history to throw a one-hitter, joining greats such as Nolan Ryan, Tom Seaver and Dwight […]
Hisanori Takahashi stepped into the Mets rotation and has been spectacular in his two starts, shutting down two explosive offenses in the Yankees and Phillies. With six scoreless innings against the Yankees last Friday and six more against the Phillies on Wednesday, Takahashi lowered his ERA to 2.13, while upping his record to 4-1. The Japanese southpaw has been a Lefty Luthor to the Supermen wearing the jerseys of last year’s pennant winners. More importantly, […]
On Friday, the Mets placed starting pitcher John Maine on the 15-day disabled list with what the team called shoulder weakness. Now Anthony DiComo of mlb.com is reporting that John Maine has been diagnosed with tendinitis in his right rotator cuff, as per the results of today’s MRI. The precautionary MRI was deemed necessary when Jerry Manuel removed Maine from Thursday’s game against the Nationals after five pitches due to a lack of velocity. Although […]
The Mets have been outstanding this season at home, going 14-8 over their first 22 games at Citi Field. However, when they leave Flushing, they seem to forget to pack their bats and their ability to win ballgames. After last night’s 3-2 defeat to the Atlanta Braves, a loss that dropped the Mets back into last place in the NL East, the Mets found themselves staring at a 5-13 road record for the season. This […]
As we enter Mid-May, the Mets find themselves in third place, 3 games behind the first place Phillies. Depending on who you ask, their 18-17 record can be viewed as an improvement from last year’s team or a disappointment because they have not been able to play well on the road. Including last night’s game, the Mets have played ten consecutive games decided by two runs or less. Their record in those games is 4-6. […]
There are many question marks surrounding the Mets’ offense this season. Why isn’t Jose Reyes hitting? Why is David Wright striking out so much? Why can’t Jason Bay get a clutch hit? Where did Jeff Francoeur’s bat disappear to? Why isn’t Luis Castillo on crutches yet? It’s enough to make a Mets fan go crazy when the team puts men on base only to strand them by striking out, popping up or grounding into a […]
