“I know Dillon Gee, if we bring anybody up that’s going to be a starting pitcher, and we have to take somebody out of the rotation and maybe move them to the bullpen, he would be that guy, because I know he can pitch out of the bullpen.” That is what Terry Collins had to say about Dillon Gee prior to his start against the Yankees in the Subway Series finale just three weeks ago. […]
With Zack Wheeler’s arrival Tuesday, the Mets will spend some time utilizing a six-man rotation designed to afford Dillon Gee and Jon Niese a little extra rest to straighten out some tendinitis issues. That won’t last forever, however, and at some point, either Gee, Jeremy Hefner or Shaun Marcum will head to the bullpen. It’ll be a few more starts from each before a decision is made, but I’m going to assume Marcum bounces back and […]
The Mets always seem to be very indecisive these days. They waited too long to fix the outfield and nobody currently on the team is even assured of a starting role in 2014. The Ike Davis saga lasted about a month and a half too long and the team paid the price with a dead out in the heart of their lineup for the first-third of the season. On Tuesday, Terry Collins announced that he […]
Jeremy Hefner started the game and while he was charged with six runs, only one of them were earned. He let up eight hits and walked two in 7.0 innings pitched while striking out two. One of the hits was a three-run blast by Allen Craig in the fifth. Greg Burke allowed two unearned runs in the sixth inning and David Aardsma allowed a solo home run to Shane Robinson in the eighth inning to complete […]

Unless you’ve been spending the first few months of the 2013 season under a rock, you know that the Mets are off to a less-than-spectacular start. Through 56 games, the Mets have a disappointing 23-33 record. The only teams in baseball that are more than ten games under .500 are the Milwaukee Brewers, Houston Astros and Miami Marlins. One of the reasons for the Mets’ poor start is their inability to hit. New York ranks […]
Tonight’s game between the Mets and Marlins has been postponed due to rain. The game will be made up as part of a single-admission doubleheader on September 14 at 4:10 PM.. Original Post 8:00 AM Despite Thursday night’s rainout against the Washington Nationals, righthander Matt Harvey will still remain the scheduled starter on Friday when the Mets begin their homestand against the Miami Marlins. Shaun Marcum, who was initially Thursday’s scheduled starter, will instead pitch on […]
In case you missed it, lefthander Jon Niese tossed 39 pitches yesterday, in a successful bullpen session at Nationals Park in Washington D.C. Niese said he had no problems, threw the ball free and easy, and was able to get his arm angle to where he wanted to. He does not foresee any after effects tomorrow and said he felt much better than his previous bullpens in between starts. “It was nice to throw a bullpen […]
If you didn’t know any better, you would think the Mets only had two relievers in their bullpen; closer Bobby Parnell and lefthander Scott Rice. On those rare occasions when the Mets need to protect a late lead, Parnell and Rice have been Terry Collins‘ first line of defense and his go-to guys. For Rice, it has led to an NL-leading 32 appearances. That puts the late-blooming rookie on pace for 96 appearances this season. […]
