Noah Syndergaard accomplished two important things on Sunday. He picked up his first win of the season and he pitched seven innings for the first time in his professional career. That according to Jonathan Raymond who got a chance to get up close to the Mets pitching prospect in his last start. Syndergaard is trying to put that one bad start when he allowed seven runs over three innings completely behind him and he seems [...]
It’s now been over seven years since that promising Opening Day in 2006, which was only day one of a season that took the Mets just a big swing away from the National League Championship trophy, and a visit to the World Series. With the exception of a few R.A. Dickey masterpieces, and a special no-hitter, there hasn’t been much cheering in Flushing since that magical run in 2006. The Metropolitans are a team that has always been [...]
It’s long been said that sequels are rarely ever as good as the original. It’s an undeniable truth. Of course there are exceptions like The Empire Strikes Back or The Godfather: Part Two, but for the most part sequels genuinely suck, to put it bluntly. No-Han was everything any Met fan could have ever hoped for last season and it surpassed all our expectations. And when it happened there wasn’t a dry eye in the [...]
It’s not exactly the variety of a film festival when watching the Mets in spring training. It’s the Nationals, Braves, Marlins and Cardinals on a rotating basis. For the Mets in Port St. Lucie, it’s like watching the same episodes of Seinfeld over and over. After awhile, you know how “The Contest’’ will end. For a young guy like Matt Harvey working on a pitch, those teams don’t have to worry about the film as they can see him first [...]
The Mets find themselves with two critical decisions to make this offseason. The easier of the two appears to be resigning home grown altar boy, David Wright, to an expensive yet semi-reasonable contract which keeps him at the hot corner for the remainder of his career. This negotiation, while complicated, is aided by the fact that both sides seem to be on the same page. The same can’t necessarily be said for the future of [...]
R.A. Dickey. Gio Gonzalez. Both pitchers are gunning for the Cy Young Award. Only one will get it (assuming we don’t have a tie a la the 1979 NL MVP vote that got Keith Hernandez a co-MVP Award). You can go to any site and find comparisons between the two. Anyone will tell you that Gonzalez leads Dickey by one win and that Dickey leads Gonzalez in innings pitched, strikeouts, ERA, WHIP, shutouts and complete [...]
It comes as no surprise to most Mets fans, but the team has officially been eliminated from the NL East race. They are 22 games behind the NL East leading Washington Nationals and only have 21 games to play. The team has little to play for the rest of the way, and the majority of the team has probably started booking some off-season vacations. The one player who still has a lot to play for [...]
