Murphy Is Finally Flexing Some Muscle

They are hot, so as Crash Davis said you don’t mess with a streak. This is not a time for the Mets to be making wholesale changes, but there are things they could consider. The Mets don’t have the multitude of power options that say, Ben & Jerry’s has ice cream choices, but Daniel Murphy […]

Buck Ignites 7-2 Win Over Phillies, Harvey Dominant Again

The pre-game buzz was Matt Harvey being a growing hot property and Philadelphia’s Roy Halladay on a downhill slide. Both bandwagons got a little more crowded Monday night as Harvey was superb as his Mets pounded Halladay, 7-2. The Mets also received big nights from John Buck and Ruben Tejada in winning their third straight game. ON THE MOUND: Harvey gave up a run […]

Mets Are Making Some Good First Impressions To Start The Season

It’s always fun to examine the first impressions of a new season. For example, it is safe to say John Buck will not finish with 292 RBI. However, you might get interesting odds if you believe the 3-2 Mets will continue their pace and outplay the 1-4 Yankees. That being said, the measuring stick for success or […]

[…]

David Wright, Daniel Murphy And The Year Of The Intercostal Injury

This spring has been rocked by injuries for the Mets thus far. Maybe it’s because we live in New York, and hear about the injuries more, but it doesn’t seem like as many teams have suffered the amount of injuries that the two New York teams have this spring.
