I was on the phone when the news flashed across my laptop screen. Two bombs exploded near the finish line of the Boston Marathon. I quickly closed my laptop and turned on my TV and couldn’t believe what I was seeing. The latest report says that at least two people are dead and over 100 more are injured, but those numbers could rise. Authorities say this was the result of two bombs that were left […]
ADD DESTROYING CRIMINAL EVIDENCE TO A-ROD’S RAP LIST? On Friday afternoon, Michael Schmidt of the New York Times broke the story and identified Alex Rodriguez as the player who allegedly purchased documents from a former employee of Biogenesis of America in an attempt to destroy evidence linking him to the anti-aging clinic’s distribution of performance-enhancing drugs. When the Miami New Times broke the story in January, I remember saying “this is the White Whale. This is the […]
Since the birth of baseball, teams have had one goal for each season and that was to win the championship and allow their fans bragging rights. Many teams have had the honor of not only winning one, but winning the Fall Classic multiple times. But for Mets fans wanting to win more than two and actually doing so, has been an uphill climb for so many years. With so many seasons with near misses, each […]
I cringed as Domonic Brown’s three-run home run in the bottom of the first inning disappeared deep into the stands at Citizens Bank Park last night. Phillies 5, Mets 0 before we even blinked. But then I realized that Citizens Bank Park is band box, and one or two big swings would get the Mets right back in the game. Sure enough, homers from the red-hot John Buck and Lucas Duda made it a 5-2 […]
Last night, at least six times, I heard fans, beat writers and announcers drawing comparisons to Tom Seaver when talking about Matt Harvey. He’s quickly becoming not just a Mets story limited only to the five surrounding boroughs, but a national baseball story as well. A cover on the front of Sports Illustrated or ESPN magazine is not far away. Harvey, 24, had his second consecutive scintillating start in a row on Monday evening, holding the Phillies […]
Mets Lineup Collin Cowgill CF Daniel Murphy 2B David Wright 3B Ike Davis 1B Mike Baxter RF Lucas Duda LF Ruben Tejada SS Anthony Recker C Aaron Laffey LHP Game Notes The Mets optioned RHP Jeurys Familia to Triple-A Las Vegas. They also moved Johan Santana to the 60-day disabled list and removed him from the 40-man roster. The Mets will make a corresponding move tomorrow. David Wright has now played 60 consecutive games without […]
I will remember it as if I saw it yesterday for the first time. A sheet of notebook paper, with the words, “Know your place, Rook … signed, your teammates,” was taped over Lastings Milledge’s locker in the Mets’ clubhouse in old RFK Stadium. This, in the late summer in 2006. The Mets were en route to the playoffs and a veteran laden team was rubbed the wrong way by Milledge’s brashness and arrogance. Then-manager […]
What a game by Matt Harvey last night, and if you missed our interview with him on Monday, you should check it out. As we stated last night, this is exactly what aces are supposed to do. The young right-hander went 7.0 innings and surrendered one hit last night, tied for the fewest he’s allowed in a single game in his career. He also went 7.0 innings and allowed one hit on September 19 vs. […]
That the Mets dispatched the Padres on opening day should not be as much a surprise as the manner in which they did it. The Mets reputation as world beaters on opening day goes without mention … it likely has something to do with the presence of some fine pitching throughout Met history and the natural advantage pitching has over hitting early in the season. Yet somehow, yesterday felt different. It reminded me of a […]
