Original Post 5:34 PM Jerry Manuel has confirmed that left-hander Pat Misch will start for the Mets on Saturday against the Phillies. The choice was between Misch and Oliver Perez. They made the wise decision. Pat Misch will go up against the Phillies ace, Roy Halladay. Pat Misch has spent […]
Joe Posnanski answered a question on his blog a few days back about who is the worst everyday player in baseball for 2010. “A friend and I have a bet – I say Rony Cedeno, he says Chone Figgins. I know Yuni was your choice at one point last year, can you give us an update and settle a bet?” His judgment of “The Worst Everyday Player in Baseball” goes by these qualities… (1) Poor […]
As reported by the Associated Press, New York Mets reliever Francisco Rodriguez is in custody after what police called a “physical assault” on a family member at Citi Field. Police say Rodriguez will be charged with third-degree assault. Police say the incident occurred after the Mets’ 6-2 loss to the Colorado Rockies on Wednesday night.

According to Adam Rubin of ESPN-NY, Bisons starting pitcher Pat Misch was pulled after 55 pitches on Tuesday night and could be promoted to the Mets to make a start on Saturday vs. the Phillies. Misch has a 3.23 ERA with the Bisons this season and is in line for his 11th win if Buffalo holds a lead tonight. Adding Misch to the rotation would send left hander Hisanori Takahashi back to the bullpen, and maybe get […]

I’m still a little bit confused by the snap decision by the Mets to promote Fernando Martinez on Saturday. It seemed as though it wasn’t very well thought out. Normally, I love to see a home-grown player promoted from the minor leagues, but the more I look at this particular case, the more it wreaks of just another bad decision by Mets higher-ups. As I wrote on Saturday, I thought the Mets made the right […]
Update 2:15 AM Adam Rubin writes: Two sources — one with ties to the organization, one formerly with the organization — indicated the Seattle Mariners are the team involved in dialogue with the Mets.
