“We all want to win as many games as possible, but my job is to match the short term with the long term,” he said. “We felt this was in our best interest.” That’s what Mets general manager Sandy Alderson had to say to reporters before tonight’s game, in response to trading catcher John Buck and outfielder Marlon Byrd. Sandy added that second base prospect Dilson Herrera as well as a player still to be named […]
Despite the dose of bad news we received today, Zack Wheeler gave us a little hope as he shined in his outing today. Unfortunately, the result was not the desired one. The Mets struck first when Andrew Brown hit a second inning single right back up the middle and brought around Marlon Byrd to make the score 1-0. Wheeler was solid through three, but the Phillies got to him in the 4th when an Cody […]
This week in Mets baseball started out fairly well. Despite dropping the last two games of a four game set in San Diego, the Mets made the most of their make up game in Minnesota with a 6-1 win and, the following day, put up a performance that seemed to be a promising sign: scoring four unanswered runs off of Brandon Beachy, one of the Braves’ most promising young pitching arms. Unfortunately, the Mets’ bats […]
Detroit Tigers at New York Mets Citi Field • 7:10 PM Doug Fister (10-6, 3.63) vs Daisuke Matsuzaka (0-0, 0.00) Starting Lineup Eric Young, Jr. – LF Daniel Murphy – 2B Marlon Byrd – RF Ike Davis – 1B Wilmer Flores – 3B Juan Lagares – CF Travis d’Arnaud – C Omar Quintanilla – SS Daisuke Matsuzaka – RHP Game Notes Greg Burke was optioned to Triple-A Las Vegas so the Mets could clear a roster […]
Zack Wheeler picked up his sixth win of the season and the Mets blasted two home runs as they opened up their homestand with a 5-3 win over the Atlanta Braves at Citi Field. Wheeler was a different pitcher than we saw in his last start and just focused on pitching his game rather than trying to strike everyone out. The result was a solid effort as he held the Braves potent offense scoreless for […]
Well it looks like Sandy Alderson didn’t agree with my pleas to give Jake deGrom the start on Friday… He unambiguously shot down the idea last night, and said that “DeGrom is not on the table.” Instead, the Mets have decided to take Carlos Torres out of the bullpen where he has done a stellar job, and put him back into the rotation. Torres has a 1.49 ERA in 19 relief appearances this season, and in three […]
After taking the first two games of their four-game set against the Padres, the Mets got shelled in an 8-2 loss at Petco Park on Saturday night. The Mets may have also lost starter Jenrry Mejia for the season after he was removed from the game after throwing two pitches in the fourth inning. Mejia experienced discomfort in his right elbow and we’ll know more in the morning. He allowed one run on four hits […]
Oh, the Mets must be regretting that strike-out promotion now… Jon Niese became the second starter to take the mound for a sixth inning and cross the 100-pitch mark in two days — and backed up Wheeler’s dominant performance yesterday with a quality start of his own. I was a little worried about Niese being thrown out there for the sixth considering he’s rehabbing from a partially torn rotator cuff…but he looked really sharp over […]
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 […]
