3 Up & 3 Down: Those Darn Dodgers Edition

The Los Angeles Dodgers were in town this week, taking 2 out of 3 games against the Mets. This was a fun series, that pictured two well pitched games on Wednesday and Thursday. I’ll even go so far as to say Wednesday night’s game was one of the most enjoyable ball games I’ve watched in […]

Reviewing The Top Of The Mets Batting Order

I thought about the first three spots in the Mets lineup. While the two and three holes seem locked by Daniel Murphy and David Wright respectively, the leadoff spot has been somewhat of a revolving door. Here is the list of starts in the leadoff spot with Murphy and Wright at No. 2 and 3: […]

Hours after being named MMO Player of the Week, Mets right-hander Matt Harvey was named the National League Player of the Week this afternoon by MLB. Harvey fashioned a 2-0 record and 1.20 ERA last week, and took a no-hitter into the seventh inning against the Twins on Saturday. Through three starts this season, the […]

Mets Brace Themselves For A Rockie Series

Not surprisingly, yesterday’s game at Minnesota was bagged by the weather, which doesn’t figure to be much better in Colorado this week. I wrote last week Matt Harvey could pitch against Stephen Strasburg in the first game of the Washington series, and depending on possible postponements it could still pan out that way. The Mets […]

Daniel Murphy – The Mets’ Overlooked Offensive Star

With all the attention being paid to John Buck’s torrid start, another Met’s offensive performance has gone under the radar.  But his start is just as noteworthy as Buck’s. Daniel Murphy has always been a great contact hitter, lashing doubles at a rate never before seen by a left-handed hitter in Mets history.  Nearly one-quarter […]

Live From Target Field: Mets Freeze-Dry Twins In 16-5 Win

I was on the phone with Joe D. as I was driving to the park and he asks me if I think they’ll get the game in? I look out my window, light snow showers, “I think so,” I tell him. “Just some light snow at the moment.” I hadn’t been off the phone for […]

Who Are to Blame For Mets Early Woes?

A buddy of mine asked me recently, when was I going to put out an article on how Ike Davis is killing the Mets with his at-bats and his inability to hit left handed pitchers and I kind of thought about it at first, because I didn’t feel that Ike warranted an article solely blaming […]

Will Ike Davis Still Be At First Base When The Future Finally Arrives?

If the Mets are to beat Cliff Lee tonight – the second Phillies’ ace in as many nights – they’ll have to do it without Ike Davis. Davis is struggling out of the gate, hitting .148 with one homer and showing no signs of breaking out. He’s on the way of repeating last spring, which morphed into a […]
