PRETTY IN PINK? The Mets were beaten by the Pittsburgh Pirates by the score of 3-2 this afternoon in front of a nicely packed Mother’s Day crowd at Citi Field. Matt Harvey started and while he pitched good enough to win, he wasn’t at his best and he seemed to rely mostly on a variety of breaking balls and off-speed stuff rather than his usual 95-98 mph fastball. He tossed seven innings and allowed two earned runs […]

Frank Francisco pitched 1.0 scoreless inning last night for St. Lucie of the Florida State League, allowing just one single. Francisco has tossed 4.0 scoreless innings in four rehab outings and is getting closer to returning to the Mets. Terry Collins said he would first like to see how Francisco responds after back to back appearances on Sunday and Monday before the team makes plans to activate him from the disabled list. Either way, there’s no […]
Wow, this was a great game for the Mets who just beat the Atlanta Braves 7-5 in extra-innings at Turner Field tonight. I hope you caught all the action because it was one of the best games and biggest wins of the season for the Mets. Jordany Valdespin once again sparked the big inning and continues to make Terry Collins look like a fool whenever he’s out of the lineup. More on him later. Shaun Marcum […]
Kristie Ackert of the Daily News had a nice piece yesterday about Bobby Parnell and his being the closer of the 2013 New York Mets. Parnell was called in to close out the ninth on Monday in the series opener against the Marlins and failed to shut the door, leading to a 15-inning affair and an eventual loss. Due to the fact that the Mets young closer threw two innings and 35 pitches, Terry Collins opted […]
When you glance at this morning’s Mets pitching leaders, you see two names that belong in Matt Harvey and Bobby Parnell. Each of them have been nothing short of phenomenal in their roles of closer and staff ace. But just below them is a name nobody expected much from this season – that is unless you read my preseason feature on Scott Rice – the 31-year old rookie who has become a cult figure here on […]
Strike up the band, the Mets pulled one out in the final game of the Marlins series to avoid getting swept by the worst team in baseball. I don’t need to tell you this, but being a Mets’ fan is about being disappointed, frustrated and angry. It shouldn’t have to mean being betrayed. After the disappointment of the Omar Minaya Era, which was highlighted by bad contracts – but at least he was signing people […]
Just call him Mr. Clutch or as our own Daniel Nelson likes to refer to him, “El Dramatico”. Yes, of course we’re talking about the incredible Jordany Valdespin who came off the bench once again and delivered another dramatic pinch-hit home run to help the Mets beat the Marlins 7-6 and salvage the final game of the series. Valdespin continues to display an uncanny ability for rising to the occasion whenever the Mets need a […]
I feel bad for all you die-hards who stood up till 12:45 AM like I did to watch the Mets lose to the Marlins 4-3 in 15 innings. I’m dead tired so this recap will be a quickie… After the Mets took the lead in the top of the 15th on a Lucas Duda double followed by a passed ball and then a clutch Ruben Tejada RBI infield single after they intentionally walked Ike Davis, […]
