Before the today’s game the New York Mets placed infielder Justin Turner on the 15-day disabled list due to an intercostal strain and subsequently activated reliever Scott Atchison. However, when Atchison came in to pitch the bottom of the 7th inning, he appeared to injure in his leg while tossing his warmup pitches. Atchison was immediately pulled from the game and replaced by Brandon Lyon. The Mets are calling it a sore right groin. The [...]
Please, join me as I throw a handful of dirt on the coffin of Jordany Valdespin’s career as a New York Met. The one I used to call El Dramático for his ability to spark rallies and hit long home runs is getting playing time for one reason: he’s being shopped. Don’t expect him to be with the Mets past the trade deadline. I’ve been a staunch defender of Valdespin since the Mets’ first intrasquad [...]
The New York Mets fourth round pick, second baseman L.J. Mazzilli, has officially signed with the team according to the company’s official Twitter page. The Mets made the announcement early on saturday posting a Tweet which read, “Mets 4th rounder UConn 2nd baseman L.J. Mazzilli, Lee Mazzilli’s son, has officially signed and will be sent to @BKCyclones”. The announcement marks yet another 2013 draftee to come to terms with the organization. Mazzilli, the 116th pick [...]
“It’s always good planning to have a baseball in the dugout with shoe polish on it, just in case.” That is the expression coined following the infamous Shoe Polish incident, when in Game 5 of the 1969 World Series, Cleon Jones hit the deck to evade a Dave McNally pitch that skidded into the Mets dugout, only to be retrieved by Mets skipper Gil Hodges to reveal a smudge of shoe polish, awarding Jones first [...]
In four decades of rooting for the Mets my most painful memory, without a doubt, was when Yadier Molina deposited an Aaron Heilman pitch over the wall in Game 7 of the 2006 NLCS. I literally could not believe what I saw. Seeing is believing—but not in this case. 2006, like 1986, was OUR year. The 162 games were a mere formality. It took us all winter to recover but when April 07 rolled around, we [...]
Current Mets manager Terry Collins has been named as National League coach alongside former Mets skipper Davey Johnson for the 2013 All-Star game at Citi Field. The two were designated by Bruce Bochy on Thursday, the current skipper for the San Francisco Giants, who will manage the National League at this years Midsummer Classic. The announcement marks Collins’ second straight year coaching for the All-Star game after serving under Tony La Russa in last years [...]
Rick Ankiel has parted way with the New York Mets says Adam Rubin of ESPN New York. The 33-year old elected to become a free agent rather than accept a minor league assignment after being designated for assignment last week. Ankiel was signed by the Mets exactly one month ago on May 13th after being released by the Houston Astros just four days prior. He batted .182 with 25 strikeouts in just 66 at-bats in [...]
With the hinted announcement that Zack Wheeler could be making his major league debut on June 18th, the Mets are officially on the clock for the future. June 18th is vital to the Mets future success, and it’s probably not for reasons you may think I am going to say. They need to trade Wheeler, if not for the team’s sake – then for his sake. Wheeler is never, ever going to live up to [...]
The GM is one of the most despised people in New York. People are calling for the manager to be fired. The entire team is neither executing nor playing fundamentally sound baseball. We’re not hitting and fans are now outnumbered by empty seats. The Mets seem destined for a 90+ loss season and avoiding 100 losses will be an accomplishment. The Yankees own the city. Opposing teams are chomping at the bit when they arrive in [...]
