SCORE: San Diego 2, Mets 1, at Citi Field. RECORD: 2-1. SUMMARY: What, you expected this to last forever? When you pitch you always have a chance to win. When you don’t hit, that chance is negated. The Mets wasted a solid outing from Dillon Gee in suffering their first loss of the season today by the Padres. This coming after the Mets outscored the Padres, 19-6 in their first two games. “Dillon pitched well, we just weren’t [...]
Matt Harvey was everything the Mets hoped for as he dominated the San Diego Padres, 8-4, in frigid Citi Field tonight. Harvey gave up one hit with ten strikeouts in seven scoreless innings. All San Diego’s runs came against the bullpen, which is expected to be a Mets’ Achilles Heel this season, but not even it could ruin this night. Especially impressive was Harvey did it pitching with temperatures in the low 30s after the [...]

Series Preview The Mets begin their 2013 season against the San Diego Padres, who they will face off in a three-game series at Citi Field. It’s the beginning of a rather easy April schedule for the Mets, whose April opponents posted just a .476 winning percentage last season. The Padres are in rebuilding mode, but may be a sleeper team this season, even in the ever-more-difficult National League West. They struggled big time on offense, [...]
As the Mets get set to take on the Braves in today’s St. Patty’s Day Sunday matinee at Tradition Field, it will be quite easy to get into the holiday spirit. Luck of the Irish bases at Tradition Field twitter.com/Mets/status/31… — New York Mets (@Mets) March 17, 2013 How cool are these?! The Amazin’s will be running across “Luck Of The Irish” bases today. Normally I would say it’s bad luck to be stepping [...]
The Mets had an absolute field-day this afternoon with an 11-0 romp over against the Detroit Tigers in Lakeland, Fla. Jonathon Niese got the start against Detroit and continues to roll, tossing four and two thirds innings of scoreless ball and allowing just one hit while walking four. Niese has yet to allow a run this Spring. It won’t be long until he ‘s officially tapped as the Opening Day starter. I sense a big [...]
“Home runs are over-rated. You don’t have to hit home runs to win. If I don’t get a home run all year, and the team wins, I’ll be more than satisfied.” – Steve Henderson (1981) The Reccoppa family piled into Dad’s burnt orange 1970 Plymouth Duster for the short ride across the bridge on Route 37 to Seaside Heights. A visit to grandma’s summer house, a sure sign school would be out soon. Anthony, 10, [...]
Andres Torres, Scott Hairston and Ike Davis all hit home runs to support Jeremy Hefner in the last game of the season, a 4-2 win against the Marlins Jeremy Hefner had a good outing, going seven and one-third innings, allowing two runs on five hits, walking two and striking out seven. Hefner continually coaxed poor contact, and has continued to show that he may have a role in the 2013 bullpen because he has shown [...]
The Mets (73-87) lost to the Marlins (68-92) by the score of 4-3 on Tuesday evening in Miami. I want you to think hard about something, just for a second… We might have seen the last of RA Dickey in a Mets uniform. And tomorrow…you might see the last of David Wright in a New York Mets uniform. Keep in mind that last year, we likely saw the last of Jose Reyes and Carlos Beltran [...]
