Andy Martino of the NY Daily News touches upon some very sensitive issues surrounding the Mets and also reports about an incident that took place at a recent team meeting. A young Met recently tried to address the others, speak from the heart and say that the team wasn’t playing to its potential and should try harder. Many veterans did not approve of a less experienced player speaking the truth, and one confronted him with something to […]
The Mets are concerned about Gee’s innings load and it looks like there’s a fifty-fifty chance that Dillon Gee may be shutdown for the season after his remarkable debut last night against the Nationals. Andy McCullough of NJ.com explains: Gee tore the labrum in his shoulder last year. He threw 161 1/3 innings with the Bisons this year. He balanced the league lead in strikeouts against a 4.96 ERA (although his 1.33 WHIP suggests he got […]
It looks like the Mets are taking a serious look at Japanese sensation, right-handed starting pitcher, Yu Darvish. Two weeks ago, the Mets and Yankees had scouts on-hand to watch Darvish showing off his electrifying assortment of pitches, all of which he can throw for strikes. Darvish struck out 10 hitters in that game for his tenth double digit strikeout game of the year, and despite the loss scouts were extremely impressed and abuzz with excitement. Then this weekend, NPB Tracker reported that Mets scouts […]
Outfielder Angel Pagan will be the Mets nominee for the 2010 Roberto Clemente Award. The award is presented annually to the player who demonstrates the values that Clemente displayed in his commitment to the community. Last season, Derek Jeter of the Yankees won the award; Johan Santana was the Mets’ nominee. “When you see Roberto Clemente, you don’t only see the baseball player,” Pagan said. “You see the example out of the lines, the great example giving back […]

Gee went 13-8 for the Bisons with a 4.96 ERA and currently leads the International League with 165 strikeouts. He was just named Buffalo’s Comeback Player of the Year. Evans batted .294 with 17 […]
According to Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports, Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria is looking for a more dynamic personality to take over as the manager of the Marlins. He wants a fiery manager. Among the potential candidates Loria may be looking at are Jim Fregosi, Larry Bowa, and the Mets’ Wally Backman. Needless to say, losing Backman won’t play well in the New York market and most definitely would become another public relations nigtmare for the Mets. […]

Jerry Manuel told the New York Post that he’d love to know his job status for next season. “Jerry Manuel admitted yesterday that he would ‘love to know’ if the organization plans to bring him back next season, but he also isn’t about to seek out GM Omar Minaya or Jeff Wilpon for an answer. Manuel, whose contract expires after the season, said he’ll refrain from asking because he doesn’t want to become a focal point – […]
