Trying to get the most out of R.A. Dickey, both on the field and at the gate, the Mets moved him from Sunday’s start to Saturday. The switch allows him to start the home finale next Thursday against the Pittsburgh Pirates instead of in Atlanta the next night against the Braves. It might not be much with the way the Mets are drawing, but he could be going for his 20th win in the finale which […]
GM Sandy Alderson said the Mets were more likely to build via the trade route than by making a big splash in the free-agent market. Amidst the Ike Davis flap, one must wonder what pieces the Mets have to trade. When you read between the lines from what Alderson has said, everybody is fair game outside of Matt Harvey and Zack Wheeler. There might be more arms down below the Mets would find untouchable, and […]
Every morning I take a glance at the standings and the pennant races. There’s nothing like the drama and intensity of a pennant race. It is the essence of the sport. For the record, this morning the Mets are 15 games under .500 and 24 games behind the Nationals with a schedule that could plummet them to 20 below. So much for a pennant race involving the Mets. Even the collapses of 2007 and 2008 […]
Chris Young took the loss on Sunday, but worked into the seventh inning, and in doing so passed 100 innings for the season and received a $150,000 bonus. More importantly, he’s probably showed enough to warrant a contract for 2013, if not from the Mets, then somebody else. “It means I’m healthy,’’ said Young. “I think I’ve pitched pretty well, better than my record probably indicates. But, there’s a lot of room for improvement.’’ There […]
On September 10, 1969, the scoreboard said it all… “LOOK WHO’S NO. 1″ After trailing the Chicago Cubs by ten games on August 13th, the New York Mets made it all the way back, plus one, after a doubleheader sweep of the Montreal Expos. The Mets took the opener 3-2 in 12 innings. Jim McAndrew started and gave up two runs on four hits in 11 innings, while Ken Boswell drove in the game-winner with a […]
The Mets are giving us other things to think about lately, such as the New York Giants’ secondary and an inability to put together a running game. Also a chance to lament about another September of non-meaningful games for the Mets. The Mets are mired in fourth place, thinking about how a hot run could have them chasing .500, which would be a successful season. Personally, I’d rather have the collapses of 2007 and 2008 […]
Ike Davis has already overcome a lot in his brief major league career, beginning with an injured ankle that forced him to miss most of last year and a bout of Valley Fever which sapped his strength this season. However, after a dismal start that had some clamoring for him to be sent to the minor leagues Davis has rebounded to hit 26 homers with 77 RBI. Thirty could happen but it would take a […]
Mike Pelfrey surfaced on the Mets’ radar yesterday when he showed up in St. Louis to participate in the team’s fantasy football draft. Pelfrey was shelved almost immediately and underwent Tommy John surgery, May 1. Most likely, he’ll be non-tendered in December because he’s arbitration eligible and made $5.6875 million this season. The rules state players must make at least 80 percent of their previous year’s salary, but in reality rarely take a pay cut. Should […]
For those of you who think stocking up on big ticket free agents should be cognizant of what happened in Miami if they believe that is the way to go in building a team. A look at the Red Sox would do them good, too. It’s not about spending the money, but spending it wisely. The Marlins, who went crazy with Mark Buehrle and Jose Reyes, were swept this weekend by the Mets and are […]
