Pawtucket 5, Buffalo 4 By Connor O’Brien In a 14-inning nail-biter yesterday, the Bisons were defeated by the Pawtucket Red Sox 5-4. Collin McHugh took the mound for Buffalo and was solid. McHugh allowed the first run of the game in the bottom of the second when, with two outs, Jose Iglesias of the Red Sox hit […]

Backup Catcher Seems To Be Least Of Mets Concerns

With the Mets seen as the probable last-place team in the National League East when the season began, it was a pleasant surprise to end the first half with a 46-40 record. This leaves the Mets right in the thick of the National League Wild Card race and still contending for the division. After dropping […]

Could Liriano Be A Solution?

A few months back when the Mets looked like they could compete this season, I began to think of where they could address the inevitable problems in the rotation. Aside from the fantasy of making a move for a pitcher like Cole Hamels, I began to think that the Twins Francisco Liriano would make sense […]

Bullpen Blows Another Late Lead As Braves Stun Mets 8-7

The Mets drop a close game to the Braves, 8-7. Summary I hate when we lose games like this. It always feels so tough to stomach. Time to get right into it. RA Dickey started this one, his first start after being snubbed for the AS game start he deserved, and looked a little rusty. […]

Alderson Still Waiting For Bay To Perform Like 22nd Highest Paid Player In Game

In Doug’s Dugout today, we broach the second half, Tony LaRussa, and other observations. As the Mets embark on the second half sprint towards the post-season (who would’ve predicted that?) the benchmark is Ten. That is, ten games above .500. If the team can improve their 6 games above .500 mark, and make another strong […]

Last night, he looked to follow up with another dominant performance against the RedSox, and did just that. […]

Young Lasts Three Innings, Mets Walk Eleven In 7-5 Loss To Braves

Welcome back to the second half of the season, folks! Mets opened up their series in Atlanta against the Braves, and everybody is really missing Dillon Gee. Mets pitchers implode in 7-5 loss. The night the lights went out in Georgia… After an early sixteen minute power outage delay in Turner Field, the ballgame continued […]

4 Bolder Predictions for the New York Mets in the Second Half of the Season

Let me begin by apologizing to Bleacher Report who inspired me to write this post after I read “4 Bold Predictions for the New York Mets in the Second Half of the Season“. Usually when I see the word “bold” used in a title like that, I expect to see someone going out on a limb or […]

Nickeas Has More RBI Than Thole

The Mets need more production from the catchers spot. Josh Thole does a nice job managing the pitching staff, and that is really important and oftentimes overlooked.  However, that does not excuse him from being a run producer in any way, shape or form. It’s one thing to be a singles hitter with very little […]
