Starting Lineup Daniel Murphy – 2B Rick Ankiel – CF David Wright – 3B Lucas Duda – LF Marlon Byrd – RF Ike Davis – 1B John Buck – C Ruben Tejada – SS Matt Harvey – RHP Game Notes Terry Collins told reporters this morning that reliever LaTroy Hawkins will be unavailable to pitch in this afternoon’s game against the Reds. Hawkins has pitched in the last two games and has appeared in 20 of […]
It always is interesting how people automatically call a hitter that hits homers, strikes out a lot and has a low average “Dave Kingman.” Kong certainly had his issues, but regardless of what you think he still had a 16-year career in which he hit 442 homers. To say that Ike Davis is Kingman would be an insult since that would be an improvement over what he’s producing today. As a matter of fact, a […]
The Cincinnati Reds (25-18) shutout the New York Mets (17-25) by the score of 4-0 tonight at a sparsely crowded Citi Field. Left-hander Jon Niese started for the Mets and and after getting the first two outs in the first inning he allowed a hit and a pair of walks to load the bases. Niese had a chance to come out of the inning unscathed and induced a hard grounder to third for what should have been […]
I am as optimistic as anyone wants to be when you think that the Mets can turn this ship around, put together a run that can make this team worth watching again. When you go through years of not much promise, you just hope that maybe, just maybe this year could be different. I thought that in the first two weeks of the season when we had a good start and then just as fast […]
Terry Collins will go to home plate tomorrow with the line-up card and likely get booed. Surely, he’ll hear it when he makes a pitching change. It won’t be fair, but we know few things in baseball aren’t fair.Collins doesn’t have a contract beyond this season, and his lame duck status rises to the surface when the Mets go into a tailspin, as they did last week when they lost a season-high six straight games, and […]
Starting Lineup Daniel Murphy – 2B Justin Turner – 1B David Wright – 3B Marlon Byrd – RF Lucas Duda – LF Anthony Recker – C Ruben Tejada – SS Juan Lagares – CF Dillon Gee – RHP Game Notes The Mets have scored three or fewer runs in 10 of their last 12 games and in 15 of their last 21 games. Overall, New York is averaging 4.25 runs per game, the seventh-most in […]
While all the talk lately has been about whether or not it’s time to end the Terry Collins era as manager of the Mets, how much of the blame for the team’s poor performance should be equally shared with the architect and general manager, Sandy Alderson? Joel Sherman of the New York Post, pops the question and defends Collins, saying: “It is relatively easy to argue his second-year team had worse talent than his first […]
Jeremy Hefner lasted just four innings and dropped to 0-5 on the season as the Mets took it on the chin in an 8-2 loss to the Cubs on Saturday at Wrigley Field. Hefner allowed four runs on five hits and three walks and quickly put his team in a hole. The right-hander now has a 5.00 ERA and the Mets are 0-8 when he starts a game. “He just fell behind in counts,” said Terry Collins. […]
Starting Lineup Jordany Valdespin – RF Daniel Murphy – 2B David Wright – 3B Ike Davis – 1B Lucas Duda – LF John Buck – C Rick Ankiel – CF Ruben Tejada – SS Matt Harvey – RHP Game Notes The Mets’ 5-2 win against the Cardinals on Thursday was only the second time in their past 10 games they topped three runs. But when it’s rained, it’s poured for the Mets. They’ve scored seven […]
