In between watching R.A. Dickey shut down the Baltimore Orioles to get the Mets back on a winning streak, check here for Brandon Nimmo photos and updates. Nimmo made his Brooklyn Cyclones debut tonight at MCU Park in Coney Island. First at-bat: Nimmo grounds out to first base with pitcher covering. 0-for-1 Update: Nimmo ranges nicely to his right into left center field to record the final out of the top of the third inning. […]
Yesterday, WFAN’s Mike Francesa discussed how Mets broadcasters Howie Rose and Gary Cohen were “out of line” during this past weekend’s Subway Series. Francesa said that it’s great that the Mets have fans as announcers, but that they sometimes take it too far in rooting for their team, especially against the Yankees. Frankly, I love that Rose and Cohen are as die-hard of Mets fans as I am. Yes, I agree that there should be […]
Update 12:18 Andres Torres had a big night offensively, but he credited the pitching staff for their stellar performances lately. “Pitching is a big key for winning games, and all our pitchers are terrific.” He thinks tonight was his best offensive game as a Met. He’s not focused on being in first place right now, since it’s still so early. Torres was a home run shy of the cycle. I asked him if he was […]
Two months into the season, the Mets have used an inordinate amount of players thus far. This has been due in part to injuries, but it has also been the product of the Mets organization’s unwillingness to deal with mediocrity. Jack Egbert, the “power-hitting” Jeremy Hefner, Chris Schwinden, Rob Johnson, Omar Quintanilla, Jordany Valdespin, Vinny Rottino and even Kirk Nieuwenhuis all started the year in the minors and weren’t expected to be big-time contributors this […]
How great has the Mets team chemistry been this season? Maybe it has to do with the fact that the team’s biggest headache—Jason Bay—has been sidelined for nearly three weeks with a broken rib. Bay has been cleared to resume baseball activities and will be heading to Port St. Lucie this Thursday. Terry Collins told reporters after last night’s game that Bay will play in minor league rehab games before joining the big club. However, […]
After the Mets dropped three games to lowly Houston Astros, one thing appears clear: It can’t get any worse than that. Did you happen to see the Astros lineup the last three days? Jed Lowrie and Matt Downs are looked at as major offensive weapons. How did this team pull of a sweep? Well, at least we can look at it this way: The Mets got their lowest point out of the way this season. […]
It’s a fairytale story to say the least. Childhood Mets fan and Whitestone, Queens native Mike Baxter wound up suiting up for hometown team last summer. Though his playing time was limited, it still must have been a great thrill for him to be playing right at home. But this year, Baxter legitimately won a roster spot in spring training as the fifth outfielder/left-handed pinch hitter. And now, with Jason Bay on the disabled list, […]
For those who have read Moneyball, we know now that on-base percentage is the name of the game. In the early going this season, the Mets have done a great job of getting guys on base. The team is tied for third place in the NL with a .335 on-base percentage with the Washington Nationals. However, driving in those runs has been a more difficult task. Just in Wednesday’s game against the Braves, the Mets […]
