In a post last week, I discussed the incredible turnaround the Mets minor league affiliates have made this season with as many as four of them poised to win their divisions and head into postseason play. Yesterday, we posted about the historic season the Binghamton Mets are having as they set a new franchise record for most wins in a season with their 84th victory. It’s no secret that the Mets minor league system has gotten […]
Philadelphia Phillies at New York Mets Citi Field • 7:10 PM Cliff Lee (10-6, 3.16) vs Zack Wheeler (6-2, 3.49) I’m so devastated in a baseball sense by today’s news on Matt Harvey… He was supposed to be the poster boy for the new Mets renaissance… Now I don’t know what to think or how to feel…. That said, there is a game today… @MattHarvey33 Thanks for all the hope & optimism you've given Mets fans. Thanks for […]
While New York Mets closer Bobby Parnell continues on the shelf with the prospect of surgery on his herniated disk, the question burns: What are he and the Mets waiting for? Perhaps he can rehab to where surgery isn’t needed, but those odds are getting long. Yes, yes, it is his body and nobody can force surgery upon him, but reading between the lines, if it doesn’t happen, Parnell will risk not being ready for spring training […]
After 3-4 consecutive seasons of bullpen failures and a couple of unsuccessful revamps and overhauls by Sandy Alderson in 2011 and 2012, it looks like the Mets have finally turned a corner and figured things out this season. In doing so they’ve also uncovered a few potential keepers for 2014 and beyond, some of them developed through our system and others who were key acquisitions straight from the scrap heap. One such find has been […]
Mets closer Bobby Parnell, who is currently on the disabled list due to a herniated disk in his neck, received some good news on Tuesday after undergoing a followup exam with team doctors in New York. After his exam, doctors concluded that Parnell is making progress, according to a report by Adam Rubin of ESPN New York. However, Parnell remains idle and there is no timetable for his return. Still this is good news considering […]
It’s not like he’s a kid any more. Binghamton closer Jeff Walters (pictured on the right) is 25 years old. It’s not like he’s lacking in experience. Walters pitched four years in college. In fact, starting in his senior year in high school, the B-Met closer was drafted four times, turning down four different major league offers (Giants, Nationals, Indians, Orioles) before signing with the Mets after his senior season at the University of Georgia. Binghamton is Walter’s […]
In a major blow to an already battered roster, the Mets lost their closer, Bobby Parnell, and relief pitcher Josh Edgin to injury within one week of each other. With the later addition of all-star third baseman David Wright to the disabled list, the Mets appeared to be on the brink of destruction. What else would you expect? A team that fails to play .500 ball when completely healthy was playing without one of their top […]
Despite last night’s walk-off loss to the Arizona Diamondbacks, the Mets bullpen has been very effective for over two months now. You would think that losing their closer Bobby Parnell to a bulging disk, would’ve been the death blow for the Mets’ pen, but in all honesty a few relievers have stepped up – and in a big way. Chief among them is the 40-year old veteran LaTroy Hawkins who along with Marlon Byrd, have been two of […]
