Dillon Gee pitched a strong six innings, but the bullpen failed yet again in the Mets 5-4 loss to the Arizona Diamondbacks. Recap Dillon Gee went six strong innings, allowing two runs on four hits while striking out six, walking three and hitting a batter. Gee didn’t seem to have his best command on the day, but he managed to get the anxious Dbacks hitters to swing at numerous poor pitches and relied on a [...]
Chris Schwinden struggled in yet another start, and the offense couldn’t put anything together in their 8-1 loss to the Houston Astros Recap The Chris Schwinden experiment had another rough day, with the final outcome being five runs on six hits in four innings, striking out one and walking two. Schwinden allowed two more home runs and has looked overmatched in his two starts, and the next step seems to involve Jeremy Hefner coming up [...]
R.A. Dickey was lights out, the Mets offense managed to score some runs late, and #5 David Wright became the Mets all-time leader in RBI’s in their 5-1 win, ensuring a series victory against the Marlins. Recap R.A. Dickey came out today and had his best outing of the season, going seven innings allowing one run on three hits, walking one and striking out seven. Dickey’s only run allowed was on a home run to [...]
As has been a recurring theme in the Mets last few years, the injury bug has hit and its done a drastic reshaping on the entire roster in a matter of three weeks. How will the Mets manage to handle the loss of key players, with the addition of new, younger players who are talented, but untried at the MLB level. With the rash of injuries on the offensive side of the ball, the Mets [...]
In a steady rain, R.A. Dickey had a poor outing, the bullpen struggled and the Mets lost the rubber game of the series, 14-6 Recap R.A. Dickey came out today and looked stellar in the first inning, but after that, the knuckleball went north and his results went south. Dickey struggled, giving up six runs between the second and the third before finally escaping the fourth without a crooked number. However, the fifth inning would [...]
Johan Santana had a good, albeit short outing, the offense provided no support and the bullpen was wild in the Mets 4-0 loss to the Nationals. Game Recap Johan Santana took the mound today, and despite some early-inning control trouble, managed to navigate his way through five innings. Santana was much more dominating then his stat-line will attest to, going five innings allowing one run (that scored on a wild pitch) on five hits, walking [...]
Dillon Gee had a subpar outing, and the combination of poor defensive play by Daniel Murphy & Lucas Duda led to the Mets receiving their first loss of the season, a 6-2 defeat at the hands of the Washington Nationals. Game Recap Dillon Gee started the game on a bad note, giving up a lead-off home run to Ian Desmond. Gee was hit hard all day and obviously didn’t have his best control, but getting [...]
David Wright has begun the 2012 season on an absolute tear, first in the NL batting average, second in OBP behind Corey Hart, and three walks to zero strikeouts in nine at-bats. To boot, he has also already hit his first home run, and it was not aided by the fences being brought in. While it is still early in the season, looking for a comparative season in which David has started on a run like this [...]
With Roy Oswalt still on the market, seemingly holding out for either the Rangers or Cardinals to make a decision, will the right-hander be left with an ultimatum similar to the Manny Ramirez situation a few years ago and sign with a willing team or will he sit the year out in hopes of getting signed to a contender for the late-summer push. I feel as if with Oswalt’s options running down, his ability to [...]
A sad day for Major League Baseball and the New York Mets, as Mets great and 1986 World Champion Gary Carter has finally succumbed to his ongoing battle with cancer. The news was released by his daughter on the Carter Family blog, that Gary had passed at 4:10 PM today, February 16th, 2012. The whole team at Mets Merized Online sends out their condolences to the Carter family and every person who has been emotionally [...]
Starting Pitching. This article could have been concluded with a bold-faced assertion like that, and it would’ve served better as a tweet. However, there are numerous reasons why starting pitching will make the Mets (if the pitching performances are as expected or better than) a possible dark-horse contender in the NL East, or even for the wild card. Mets starters were middle of the pack last year in innings pitched, getting 974 innings out of [...]
