Surprise, Surprise. A-Rod Gets Plunked In Return To Fenway

I rarely post anything that isn’t Mets related, but I hope people had a chance to watch yesterday’s game between the Yankees and Red Sox in Fenway Park. Another chapter was written into one of the most storied rivalries in sports. In the second inning, Alex Rodriguez walked to the plate engulfed in a tidal […]

Fulmer Pulled From Game With Potential Shoulder Injury

Oh Fulmer, we hardly knew ye… Quoting Adam Rubin: “…Michael Fulmer tossed 3 1/3 scoreless innings. He departed with a potential shoulder injury after fielding a comebacker from rehabbing Casey Kotchman.” It’s a shame that this had to happen to begin with, but the timing makes it doubly disappointing. Fulmer finally looked like he was starting to […]

Bullpen Blows Another Harvey Gem In 4-3 Mets Loss

Today was Harvey Day for the Mets — but it wasn’t just any ol’ Harvey day… It was the first time any catcher that wasn’t John Buck caught a pitch from Matt Harvey this season. Oh, but it wasn’t just any catcher either — it was Travis d’Arnaud. I will say this — d’Arnaud has […]

This Day In Mets Infamy With Rusty: The Separated At Birth Edition

It is funny how sometimes we look like famous people. I for example have been told that I look like a bloated Danny Partridge or a late in his career Rusty Staub (hence my nickname Rustyjr). But it is amazing when some of our favorite current Mets players and coaches look like other famous people. […]

Thoughts from Joe D. First of all, congratulations to everyone on the Binghamton Mets who are a win away from clinching the division and a playoff berth. At 78-47 they are having one of the greatest seasons in the history of the Eastern League. A hearty round of applause for all the players and also […]

Byrd And Davis Slam Back-To-Back Bombs In 5-2 Mets Win

Oh, the Mets must be regretting that strike-out promotion now… Jon Niese became the second starter to take the mound for a sixth inning and cross the 100-pitch mark in two days — and backed up Wheeler’s dominant performance yesterday with a quality start of his own. I was a little worried about Niese being […]

Montero and D’Arnaud Make BA Prospect Hot Sheet

It was a good week for top prospects Rafael Montero and Travis d’Arnaud; they were both recognized by Baseball America today in their weekly edition of the Prospect Hot Sheet. Montero has been hot for a while, but his most effective performances since getting promoted from Binghamton have come in his most recent starts. He […]

Rafael Montero Is The Pitching Prospect You Keep, Not The One You Trade

Thoughts from Joe D. After Satish posted an update on Rafael’s Montero’s brilliant performance last night, I received a few questions about him via email and Twitter. In Montero’s last six starts for Las Vegas, consider these numbers… In 39.0 innings pitched, he has allowed just 28 hits and 11 walks for a 0.99 WHIP […]

Wheeler Punches Out A Dozen Batters In 4-1 Mets Win

I have to say, Zack Wheeler might have had a little pitch count trouble tonight, but he found his groove and mowed down the Padres for six spectacular innings of one-run ball in this 4-1 Mets victory. The Mets rotation is really starting to put the MLB on notice. With Wheeler starting to blossom and […]
