I came across this post by Matt Myers on ESNY New York, that was about outfielder (or infielder) Jordany Valdespin. It really had little to do with Valdespin’s performance, well maybe just a tiny bit. but ventured more into Spn’s personality, cockiness and how it drives some fans crazy. Whether it’s hitting a game-winning homer off Jonathan Papelbon, getting hit in the groin by a Justin Verlander fastball while not wearing a cup, or getting blamed for Daniel Murphy’s baserunning […]
For better or worse, Michael Bourn fell off the New York Mets radar Monday when he agreed to a four-year, $48 million deal with the Cleveland Indians. Mets/MLB beat writer Anthony DiComo suggests, if history is any indication, Sandy Alderson committed an error. DiComo wrote: The 11th overall Draft pick has a bizarre history of busts relative to the picks around it. Of the 48 players in history taken 11th overall, only five have amassed […]
The offense, spearheaded by a David Wright three run shot in the first never let up, and R.A. Dickey pitched a quality six innings in the Mets 7-3 win against the Nationals. Game Notes R.A. Dickey had a good outing and the definition of a quality start, going six innings allowing three runs on nine hits, striking out one. Dickey may have not had his strikeout stuff today, but allowing three runs is nothing to […]
Miguel Batista pitched a solid game, and the Mets offense was buoyed by Marlins mistakes in their 7-5 win. Game Notes Miguel Batista, just recently called up and in his first MLB start as a Met, had a solid outing for his 100th career win. Batista went six innings, allowing two runs on six hits, walking three and striking out three. Batista gave up two of his walks and five of his hits in the […]
Jonathon Niese had possibly his worst outing of the season, and the Mets offense could not figured out Phillies starter Vance Worley yet again in their 9-4 loss. Game Notes Jonathon Niese only made it into the fifth, but was completely ineffective today. Niese allowed eight runs on ten hits, walking one and striking out six, while allowing two home runs. Niese was effective until the third inning, and then he was rendered useless. The […]
Mike Pelfrey had one of his usual one inning explosions, and the Mets offense couldn’t hit with RISP in their 6-1 loss to the Brewers Game Notes Mike Pelfrey took 86 pitches to get through two difficult innings, and three fairly clean innings. Pelfrey’s final line was five innings, allowing four runs (three earned) on eight hits, walking four and striking out four. Pelfrey didn’t seem to have good control at all, but a nearly […]
Dillon Gee pitched a great game and the offense didn’t manage many hits, but a big David Wright hit ensured the 7-3 Mets win. Game Notes Dillon Gee was in control both figuratively and literally up until the seventh inning, after being hit on the right knee in an at-bat the inning before. Gee went six and two-third innings, allowing one run on five hits, walking four and striking out five. Two of the hits […]
Chris Capuano pitched a great six innings and the Mets defense managed to falter again in their 4-3 loss against the Marlins Game Notes Chris Capuano had a great outing after a few bad outing including two against the Marlins. Cap went six innings, allowing two runs on four hits, striking out five and walking two. As has been Capuano’s strong suit, he gave up two long balls to account for two of the four […]
From the beginning of the season, defense had seemed to be a big question, but one the Mets front office seemed to ignore for the sake of offense. While the offense has been good if not great this season, the runs the defense has cost the Mets is definitely showing differential in the pitchers FIP, or fielding-independent pitching. The real experiment from the onset of the season was “who will play second?” and that was […]
