Here is part of what he says, and you can read the entire piece here. At the moment, Jeff Francoeur’s the everyday right fielder for the Mets because […]
Happy first day of summer to all Met Nation. We are actually talking about a very good summer where the Mets are concerned. This team is alive and vibrant and ‘returning home’ after a 7-2 road trip. The 2 losses to the Yankees notwithstanding, this road trip was a huge success. It improved the standing of the club in the standings, and may have actually assisted in making believers out of ownership, the front office, […]
Cue in the morning after the storm… The morning after the final chapter in the 2010 subway series has concluded and after all is said and done, the Mets and Yankees have drawn even after six games played.

According to David Lennon of Newsday, the Mets have sent RHP Jenrry Mejia to Double-A Binghamton to continue his development as a starting pitcher. The Mets have yet to announce a corresponding move and have until tomorrow to do so. It looks like common sense has prevailed and Mejia can go do what he needs to do so that he can return as a starting pitcher. According to Adam Rubin, Mejia will start for the B-Mets […]
In a rehab start for Double-A Binghamton yesterday, John Maine pitched four scoreless innings allowing just one hit and two walks, while striking out five. According to Anthony Coleman of the Trenton Times, Maine’s velocity topped out at 88 mph. Maine didn’t seem too concerned. “I don’t really worry about velocity. It’s just looking at swings, seeing how they react. It was OK, I guess.” However, according to Andy McCullough of the Star-Ledger, Mets manager Jerry […]
According to Bob Nightengale of USA Today via Twitter, the Mets will host the 2013 MLB All-Star Game.

Hopefully, Citi Field will have already hosted a World Series by then…
From the files of the strange, but true… According to Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports, the Mets will not part with “B Level” prospect Ruben Tejada, even if it meant acquiring a top of the rotation starter like Houston Astros Ace, Roy Oswalt. The Mets are so high on rookie infielder Ruben Tejada, their fill-in second baseman for the injured Luis Castillo, that they’d be reluctant to include him in a trade for a pitcher such […]
The Mets are expected to callup outfielder Jesus Feliciano from Class-AAA Buffalo in time for tomorrow’s game against the San Diego Padres. After toiling for 13 seasons in the minors, Feliciano will finally get his first taste of big league action. Coincidentally, the promotion and realization of his Major League dream may even be announced officially tonight, his birthday, when he turns 31 years old. Feliciano will be fresh off of his big five hit game […]
According to Andy Martino of the Daily News, MLB has told the Mets that they intend to review the circumstances leading up to the Mets placing Oliver Perez on the disabled list and want a copy of his latest MRI which prompted the Mets to DL him on Saturday..
