Tejada’s 16 Pitch At-Bat Is Longest In Majors This Season

On Friday night, when Mets second baseman Ruben Tejada battled Phillies’ pitcher Antonio Bastardo in a 16-pitch at-bat that resulted in a walk, manager Terry Collins said it was “as good as an at-bat as we’ve seen all year from anybody.” “He fought off the good pitches. The thing I thought was truly amazing was that he […]

I will never forget Gary Carter’s Smile – during his tenure at the Mets, we saw a lot of the happy face of their catcher. He just seemed to be so glad to be where he was, behind the plate at Shea Stadium. And, of course, he was a fine catcher or he wouldn’t have […]

Murphy’s FLAW

Daniel Murphy has done everything the Mets have asked of his this season, and has performed reasonably well in the field and at the plate. Today however, things just didn’t go particularly well for the Murph-Man as the Mets lose a heart-breaker to the Phillies 6-4 at Citi Field. The turning point in the game […]
