Bill Madden of the Daily News with the sobering reality most Met fans probably don’t want to hear: There were 21,747 gluttons for punishment at Citi Field Sunday for the conclusion of another Mets-Marlins series, which now qualify for the worst baseball on the planet. Not satisfied with having tortured their fans for 20 innings of record-tying ineptitude the day before, the Mets lost in similar fashion — just not so long in doing it […]
To Jeff Wilpon The Mets Are Just A Laughing Matter… That charming headline appeared in a May 29th Daily News article by the rabble-rousing Filip Bondy You may remember that Jeff Wilpon showed up at Citi Field and made a rare public appearance during a pregame ceremony for Mariano Rivera, who threw out the first pitch, and eventually the last. That was the day that the Mets COO gave up on the season and let the future […]
Update: 1:30 PM Paul Casella, of MLB.com, has reported that Wheeler’s call-up could come as early as this Monday. Casella states Zack Wheeler’s big-league promotion has seemed imminent for days now with the most recent sign of a looming call-up coming on Monday. ESPN reported Wheeler’s first start would come next Friday. Jay Horwitz, the club’s vice president of media relations, flew across the country on the team’s off day last Monday to meet with […]
Couldn’t help reading today that Bobby Parnell deserves to be an All Star on MetsBlog. Sorry, but I beg to differ. Parnell ranks 13th out of 15 National League closers with 9 saves. The leader, Pittsburgh’s Jason Grilli, has 22 saves, while Edward Mujica of the Cardinals and Craig Kimbrel have 17 saves each. All three have ERAs of 1.93 or lower. Do those three deserve to be All Stars? You bet they do. Parnell isn’t […]
Post Updated by Joe D. At 2:20 PM Andy Martino of the Daily News was told that the Mets want to resolve the Ike Davis situation before potentially demoting Ruben Tejada. He adds that they could also just send both of them down at once. Earlier today, WFAN’s Mike Francesa said Ike Davis and Ruben Tejada would have been sent to Triple-A after last night’s game had the Mets lost the game, based on what a team source […]
Updated By Joe D. On 5/23 A high-ranking team official told he New York Post on Thursday that barring a setback, Zack Wheeler is expected to make 2-3 more starts for Triple-A Las Vegas and then join the Mets. If Wheeler remains on normal rest, that would put his Mets debut somewhere in the June 6-11 range. “If not for the minor setback with the shoulder, he might already be here,” the club official said. “We […]
The most famous No. 1 in Mets’ history has some advice when it comes to the man who is quickly becoming the most infamous No. 1 on the Mets. “Give the kid a chance,” Mookie Wilson said Friday when discussing Jordany Valdespin. “He is a very spirited kid, very young and has a lot to learn, no question about that. But some things are being blown out of proportion. I think we need to back up and not overanalyze […]
Now that I’ve had some time to cool off, I was wondering how the rest of the Mets blogosphere was reacting to Spin-Gate and was surprised to find little to nothing about it on MetsBlog or anywhere else for that matter. Could it be I’m just overreacting? It wouldn’t be the first time… However I did learn the Mets are recalling reliever Greg Burke because the Mets bullpen is overworked. It’s only May 11th, and […]
Updated May 6, 2013 Updating Adam Rubin’s report this past weekend, which you can read about below, Mets GM Sandy Alderson spoke to the Daily News and said the following: “It’s no secret Jordany has had a slightly different approach to some things, there is a certain level of tolerance that we have. I hope he doesn’t exceed that level.” As I’ve been alluding to for months now, my conspiracy theories and pursuit of this […]
