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 more than 30 seconds when the snow got harder, then it started doing something that I think they call sleet, […]
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 him for the Mets inconsistencies. I feel that there are other guys that just haven’t gotten it going yet and […]
You can Google Ike Davis with dozens of different questions, but here’s one you won’t find an answer to: Why isn’t he as good as advertised? It was May of 2011 when Davis was hitting .302 with a .383 on-base percentage and resembling the slugger the Mets had trumpeted he could be when he ran into David Wright and hurt his left ankle and missed the rest of the season. Then came last year, the […]
The Philadelphia Phillies handed the Mets their first series loss of the season tonight as they pounded the Amazins’ by a score of 7-3 in a game that featured six home runs at hitter-friendly Citizens Bank Park. Jeremy Hefner took the hill for the Mets and and for the second night in a row a Mets starting pitcher failed to get past the third inning. Hefner struggled right from the get-go surrendering five earned runs […]
Mets Lineup Jordany Valdespin – CF Daniel Murphy – 2B David Wright – 3B Ike Davis – 1B John Buck – C Lucas Duda – LF Mike Baxter – RF Ruben Tejada – SS Jeremy Hefner – RHP Game Notes The Mets have hit at least one home run in each of their first eight games, tying the longest such stretch to open the season in team history with the 1987 club. A home run […]
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 miserable first half. “I don’t know if I can say I am better for going through that,’’ Davis said during […]
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 appears to becoming one. Lately, he has been driving the ball for power; something I always thought he was capable […]
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 in seven innings, giving up three hits and striking out nine to win his second start and lower his ERA […]
The last time the Mets had a youth movement, it was the in early 80’s and they were coming off a terrible run of losing seasons. The likes of Dwight Gooden, Mookie Wilson, Lenny Dykstra, Wally Backman, and Darryl Strawberry roamed the grounds at Shea Stadium and they quickly made a name for themselves especially after their magical run in 1986 that led them straight to a World Series Championship. Sprinkled in with a group […]
