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 not looked as comfortable behind the plate so far as I thought that he would, and he struggled with some […]
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 manager Pedro Lopez, hitting coach Luis Natera and pitching coach Glenn Abbott. Just an outstanding job by all of them. […]
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 thrown out there for the sixth considering he’s rehabbing from a partially torn rotator cuff…but he looked really sharp over […]
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 and he has held batters to a .199 batting average. Numbers like this are unheard of in the PCL and […]
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 the Mets Minors housing names such as Rafael Montero, Noah Syndergaard, and Gabriel Ynoa — who will eventually join forces […]
Well, there are some days when Matt Harvey will show up to the ballpark and be human. Tonight, unfortunately, was one of those nights and we could tell from the beginning. Our resident ace had trouble locating all of his pitches, although his fastball still had tremendous late life and a high velocity. He hung a lot of his breaking pitches and they just didn’t have the same break they normally did. Honestly, he was […]
I don’t even want to write this up, honestly. The umpiring crew…or rather Chad Fairchild played a hand in really screwing the Mets over in this game, which was a tough loss to follow. Let’s start with the good — Wilmer Flores looked pretty damn good out there again. Flores scored in the second inning when John Buck and Omar Quintanilla strung together back-to-back RBI singles to drive home Flores and Ike Davis, respectively. That […]
Brooklyn 9, State College 2 Brooklyn tied its season high mark in runs scored, beating the State College Spikes 9-2. L.J. Mazzilli led the charge tonight going 4-for-5, with two runs scored and two RBI. State College took the lead in the top of the third inning in one of the more bizarre plays you will eve see. Steven Ramos laid a bunt down the first base line and Carlos Valdez went to throw to first but Ramos was called safe. Alex […]
Hit em hard, hit em fast… The Mets held to that today and kept the D-Backs at bay the entire game as they flattened Arizona in a 9-5 win. They took the lead early after Paul Goldschmidt booted a grounder with the bases loaded and two out. A routine play that would have ended the inning ended up plating all three runs as the Mets hustled around the bases to score, giving the Mets the […]
