Jon Niese started and despite not having his best stuff, he cruised through five scoreless innings. But then in the top of the sixth, centerfielder Brett Gardner tagged him for a leadoff triple and came around to score when Jayson Nix singled him home in the next at-bat for the first run of the game. After Niese’s second single of the game, Brett Garner made a great leaping catch to rob Daniel Murphy of a two-run [...]
Adam Rubin of ESPN New York posted an info-graphic from Baseball Tonight that showed a breakdown on this season’s Mets payroll commitments. The $22.3 million includes the $18,125,000 owed to Jason Bay and the $3M for his 2014 buyout. Basically, we have less than half of our total payroll on the field, much like we saw during the 2009 and 2010 seasons. Unfortunately, the Mets are no stranger to this phenomenon. It doesn’t really hit you [...]

With Ike Davis all, but assured of a trip to Triple-A Las Vegas, the easy part is done. The difficult part will deciding on how to replace him, in body only, at first base. On the current roster, we already discussed some of the options available and they range from moving Lucas Duda from left field to first base, moving Daniel Murphy over to first, or giving Justin Turner significant playing time at first as well. None of [...]
Last week I read an article here on MMO, and at the end of the article Joe D. added his comments. Joe was explaining that MMO is not a site that is going to sugarcoat things. We’re going to give it to straight. We’re passionate about the Mets, but we’re not going to insult your intelligence. Joe’s last sentence was “we serve hard liquor here“. Those five words have inspired this edition of 3N3. As [...]
