Power hitters don’t usually run very well. And speedsters aren’t prone to hitting home runs. So it would be reasonable to say that players who are among the league leaders in home runs don’t usually find their names near the top of the triples leader board. Of course, there have been some exceptions over the years. Hall of Famer Stan Musial led the league in triples in 1948, 1949 and 1951. He hit 39, 36 […]
Say the name Gregg Jefferies to any long-time Mets fan and you’ll get various reactions. Some people loved his spunk and appreciated his contributions to the team as it pushed toward the 1988 NL East title. Other cringe upon hearing his name because of the negative effects he had on the clubhouse and the team’s chemistry. Gregg Jefferies had a remarkable final five weeks of the 1988 season. When he played his first game after […]
The Mets have stated that Matt Harvey is going to be capped at around 210 innings. Similarly, Zack Wheeler will have his season come to an end when he reaches 185 innings. As of today, Harvey has competed 145 innings, while Wheeler has tossed 108⅔ innings between AAA-Las Vegas and the Mets. That leaves approximately ten starts for both Harvey and Wheeler to reach their innings limit. But is an innings limit really the best […]
Remember when the Mets were trying to land Michael Bourn during the offseason? Bourn decided to take the money and run to Cleveland instead. So how’s that going for him? Well, his new team is doing well in the American League Central, just three games behind the division-leading Detroit Tigers. But they’re not succeeding because of Bourn. In fact, other than a decent batting average (.291), Bourn’s other numbers are far less than what Cleveland […]
Jeremy Hefner was drafted by the Mets out of high school in the 46th round of the 2004 June amateur draft. He chose not to sign. One year later, the Mets selected Hefner in the 48th round of the June amateur draft. Once again, Hefner did not sign. Instead, he transferred from small Seminole State College in Oklahoma to the much-larger and more scoutable Oral Roberts University in Tulsa, where he hoped to improve his […]
To say Marlon Byrd has resuscitated his career in New York would be a gross understatement. Byrd was supposed to be a small piece in a puzzling outfield situation. But instead, he has become one of the top run-producing outfielders in the National League. After a grand slam on Tuesday and a two-run homer in yesterday’s sweep-completing victory over the Giants, Byrd now has 15 home runs and 49 RBI, making him the team leader […]
On Friday night, the Mets hammered the Milwaukee Brewers, defeating them by the final score of 12-5. The Bad News Brewers committed three errors on the field and a number of mental errors on the bases. Despite the Brew Crew’s valiant effort to become the butt of David Letterman’s next Top Ten list, it was two Mets players who really stood out. One went 0-for-6 but took part in a fielding oddity, while the other […]
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 […]
