Matt Harvey, without having his best stuff still had a quality start against the Phillies, thanks to some key offensive contributions from Lucas Duda — Matt Harvey came out of the gate throwing his fastball often, and about as hard as Mets fans have seen in during this 2012 season. Harvey hit 99 MPH at least 5 times, and utilize that fastball for two strikeouts looking. Harvey’s final line would be six and one-third innings [...]
Its hard to fathom now, but the Mets had a realistic shot at the playoffs only one month ago. Since then the team has taken a turn for the worst with a lot of poorly played baseball compounded by additional injuries. In the process, the current situation has re-highlighted some glaring issues that the team’s successful first half had given us the luxury of forgetting about. First and foremost, the team’s pitching staff desperately needs [...]
I know what your thinking..The Mets are well on their way to making the 2012 season nothing more than an afterthought. The fact is your probably right, and that’s exactly what needs to happen if the organization is to find its way back to the promise land sooner than later. With the semi-successful first half, many Mets fans (myself included) allowed themselves to buy into the possibility that this team could make the post-season. Having [...]
Daniel Murphy hit two home runs, Scott Hairston hit a grand slam and the Mets offense had a banner day in their 17-1 win against the Cubs Game Recap Jonathon Niese had a great outing, allowing one run on eight hits while walking one and striking out six in seven innings. Niese consistently drew weak contact, and after allowing a second inning run, settled in to hold the Cubs scoreless for the next five innings. [...]
As the Mets’ roster has evolved throughout the course of this season, it appears that things may fall into place a bit faster that most fans had originally envisioned. The farm system, originally believed to be devoid of any significant major league caliber talent only one year ago, has produced enough replacements to keep the Mets afloat throughout the first third of the 2012 season. While this news is good for the franchise and its [...]
Coming off of a sweep at the hands of the NL Central leading Cincinnati Reds, the Mets should probably consider themselves lucky. Why you ask? Well, just as the Mets had done when sweeping the Tampa Bay Rays only a few days earlier, their crosstown rival Yankees did the Mets a favor in their sweep of the Washington Nationals. Its for that reason and that reason alone that the Mets remain only 4.5 games back [...]
