I can’t even count how many times broadcasters, commentators or play-by-play announcers have started a sentence with: “The Mets, an organization known for pitching…” Really??? Perhaps it’s time to rethink exactly how knowledgeable the Mets are when it comes to pitching. In one of the first scenes in the classic Field of Dreams, Ray Kinsella is driving a tractor, his daughter Karin at his side. As he regales her with stories of Shoeless Joe Jackson, […]
In case you missed it, here is Travis d’Arnaud ripping a double into the gap for his first major league hit. “Finally got it out of the way,” d’Arnaud said, according to ESPN New York. “Thankful my teammates were all there every time I kept coming to the dugout without a hit and they were all backing me up and what a wonderful feeling.” I love how fluid and level his swing is, which you […]
Another day, another injury for the New York Mets, and not surprisingly, one involving a pitcher. Jenrry Mejia didn’t make it out of the fourth Saturday night in San Diego because of pain caused by a bone spur in is right elbow. His season is in jeopardy as he likely will be placed on the disabled list today. This is not new for Mejia – he left a game in Miami, July 31 – and he is […]
I just now caught the following tweet from Adam Rubin: ESPN Stats & Info: Most Starts Allowing 1 or Fewer Runs 2013: Matt Harvey 14 Felix Hernandez 13 Clayton Kershaw 12 Patrick Corbin 12 — Adam Rubin (@AdamRubinESPN) August 8, 2013 It was a memorable Wednesday night for Matt Harvey and after all he has done already in his amazing start to his career, it was almost hard to fathom that he had not yet tossed a shutout or […]
Zack Wheeler proved why he has the potential to transform the New York Mets into legitimate contenders this week after a sterling pitching performance that saw him take a no-hitter into the seventh inning against the Marlins. The rookie righthander had his no-hit bid broken up with one out in the seventh and settled for a no-decision, but the swagger and fight we saw from him that night told the story. It was the fifth […]
When the New York Mets traded Carlos Beltran, arguably one of their top three position players in history, for prospect Zack Wheeler, they said this guy was going to be good. Really good. We got a glimpse of just how good Tuesday night in Miami when he took a no-hitter into the seventh inning. He lost it, but also impressive was despite the emotions of losing history, he kept his composure enough to minimize the damage to […]
In the midst of all the Keystone Cops slapstick last night, Zack Wheeler made his fourth start of the season and delivered a somewhat uneven performance. It wasn’t bad, it wasn’t great, it was a step in the right direction. “I’m happy about my outing, even though there were some low points,” Wheeler explained. “Falling behind, throwing 20 pitches per inning, then only going five. But I battled out there as best as I could […]
Over the years there have been plenty of great 1-2 combinations: Ruth and Gehrig, Spahn and Sain, Jackie and Pee Wee, Mays and McCovey, Seaver and Kooz, Newman and Redford, Fielder and Cabrera, Bonds and…Huh? Newman and Redford??? In 1969, veteran Hollywood actor Paul Newman and relative newcomer Robert Redford teamed up to star in one of the greatest and most fun westerns of all time, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. A good portion of […]
We’ve all heard and participated in the endless discussions about Zack Wheeler. It seems to me that we all focus on the command, which admittedly is an issue, but to me there is a greater issue here. When I watch a baseball game, I don’t watch for a pitcher to tip his pitches. Last night I was watching the MLB Network, and watched as Joey Cora and Mitch Williams broke down video from Wheeler’s first […]
