The Mets have activated reliever Ryota Igarashi from the disabled list and he will be in the bullpen when the Mets play their finale tonight against the Yankees. According to mets.com, rather than send highly regarded prospect Jenrry Mejia back to the Minor Leagues to stretch out as a starter, the Mets opted to keep Mejia on the roster following Saturday’s 5-3 win over the Yankees, instead optioning Manny Acosta to Triple-A Buffalo to make […]
As my colleague Mike Lloyd informed us last night, Houston Astros ace Roy Oswalt has demanded a trade and will waive his no-trade clause to get something expedited. From the sound of it, this might be something that gets done very soon and will not linger on until the July trade deadline. I just wanted to weigh in and voice my own support for such a move by the Mets and I do hope that […]
Only a month ago, the Mets bullpen was being looked at as a big strength for the team as they led the league in ERA, Batting Average Against, WHIP and even strikeouts. They have quickly sunk to the bottom in many of those categories as the season wore on due mostly to some bad bullpen management, pitch counts, and an ineffective starting rotation. Jenrry Mejia, the youngest player in the Majors when the season started, came […]
Long Island, New York native Steven Matz, the Mets’ top pick in the 2009 draft, underwent Tommy John elbow surgery on Tuesday at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York according to several reports that have now been confirmed by his agent Rob Martin.

According to a new report on WFAN and other sources, knuckleballer R.A. Dickey is expected to get called up from Buffalo and make his first start for the Mets on Wednesday against the Washington Nationals. Earlier today, SNY’s Kevin Burkhardt revealed that a locker in the Mets clubhouse in Atlanta already had Dickey’s name on it, suggesting an impending roster move. In his last start, R.A. Dickey tossed eight innings without giving up an earned run improving to 4-1 with a 2.23 […]
In a post to his blog, Mike Puma of the NY Post writes that Mets fans shouldn’t hold their breath waiting for the team to trade for Houston Astros ace, Roy Oswalt. Roy Oswalt’s name is out there as a potential reinforcement for a team in need of pitching help, but don’t expect the Mets to inquire. Oswalt, the Astros right-hander, recently said he’s willing to waive his no-trade clause if Houston wants to deal him. […]
According to this press release, via NJ.com, the Camden Riversharks announced today that designated hitter, Valentino Pascucci has signed a contract with the New York Mets organization. He will join New York’s AAA team, the Buffalo Bisons, of the International League. “Valentino was a team leader for us. He came in as a former major league payer and worked hard to reprove himself,” Team Manager, Von Hayes said. In the 1999 draft, Valentino was originally […]
I wanted to post something before the game and I had a choice to either write something about the trash at Citi Field or some non Mets news that smelled very Phishy. What a choice, huh? I decided to go with the latter, but before I do, I wanted to thank our friends at the uber-cool Real Dirty Mets Blog. for pointing me toward this phoul stench of a story. GravediggerHebner explains: According to many reports, including this one […]
Earlier today, Joe D. posted a blog saying that 1B/OF Chris Carter is very close to joining the Mets. In it he wrote, With the Mets’ continuing reluctance to take on additional payroll, they find themselves in the very fortunate (and envious) position of tapping into their minor league system for help that appears to be major league ready and ripe for promotions. The Mets have a lot of good baseball people in their ranks […]
