Recap Jon Niese had himself another good start despite only going five innings and being plagued with four walks. He gave up two runs in the first two innings, but was able to throw zeroes until he was taken out for a pinch hitter. Niese needs to stay in the game. He goes five innings, allowing two runs on four hits, four walks and five strikeouts. He walks away with a no decision. Manny Acosta [...]
Recap On a night with the undisputed oddest game of the season, including a cycle, an eleven run, four error inning, a runner hit by a ball running to second, a catcher’s interference on a pitch out, a grand slam, and a major league debut, there are a lot to talk about. So let’s start with Pelfrey’s replacement, Chris Schwinden. A rude welcoming to the majors by Colorado. He was tagged for a run in [...]
Coming into last nights game agaisnt the Marlins, Davis was hitting just 136. with 3 home runs and 7 RBI. After Monday’s doubleheader, Davis said that he feels better at the plate and felt he had some good swings. So far this season, Davis had already struck out 20 times. In the opener agaisnt Miami Tuesday night, it wasn’t any better for Ike who like in previous games just looks over-matched at the plate and way too out in [...]
Recap Another starter slammed by the Giants. Dillon Gee gave up seven runs and a career-high 12 hits in 6 2-3 innings. He gets his second loss of the season and has an ERA of 5.21 now. Yikes. Acosta and Parnell combined for 2.1 one hit innings. At least our bullpen was solid. Duda had an 0-fer in the first game and got two hits this time. Turner and Murphy get the only Mets RBI. [...]
Recap The Mets thought they could get away with using Miguel Batista as a spot starter today against the Giants and Lincecum. They thought wrong. All us fans saw this coming, though. He only lasted 3.2 innings and was blasted for six runs, three earned, seven hits, two being homeruns, walking three and striking out two. I somewhat understand moving Santana back to Tuesday, but Batista starting? I still don’t get what the Mets see [...]
. Andres Torres and D.J. Carrasco will begin their rehab assignments tonight with St. Luice. Torres has been out since opening day with a lingering strained calf muscle. As for Carrasco he twisted his ankle during Spring Training and was placed on the DL by the Mets prior to the start of the season. Last season in 42 games with the Mets, Carrasco [...]
Recap Jon Niese has himself another good start. He only went six innings and allowed seven hits, but kept the Giants to only three runs. He walks two and strikes out five. Niese continues to prove himself to his contract with another start that was not helped by much hitting.He walks away with a no decision. His inability to go deep into games is still discerning, however. Ramirez and Rauch combine for two innings with [...]
To see my previous mock draft from February in which I had the Mets drafting left-handed pitcher Max Fried, click here. 1. Houston Astros – Mark Appel, RHP (Stanford) Why: The Astros don’t appear like the team who is going to go for the risky homerun pick No. 1 overall with Buxton. Appel is having a fine season for Stanford so I think they’ll play this one “safe”.Previous Mock: Mark Appel 2. Minnesota [...]
Santana went just 1.1 innings tonight which was the shortest start of his career. After the 9-3 loss Terry Collins discused why he yanked his ace so early. “Obviously he didn’t hit any of his spots. He fell behind in the count and that’s not him.” Not health related at all as Santana just didnt have the command he had in his first two starts. He missed with his fastball up in the zone and [...]
Recap Mets are just spoiling us with all this offense including the homeruns. Ike Davis with a three-run homerun to break the game open, and after Jason Bay robbed the Braves of a homerun, hit one himself deep in center field for a solo shot and an insurance run. Broken fingers seem to be helping the Mets. Dillon Gee had a great start this afternoon allowing only one run on four hits in seven innings [...]
After missing Sundays game with a jammed right ring finger, Jason Bay is back in the lineup tonight batting fifth. The Mets were worried last night that Jason might be headed for the DL. “It does bother me, but its something I will be able to play through.” Jason said to reporters prior to the Mets 8-2 lost in Philadelphia. The injury occured in Saturdays game when Jason dove head first back into first base. [...]
