Matt Harvey was named the Pitcher of the Month for April, the first Met to win the honor since R.A. Dickey last did so in June, 2012. Harvey, 24, went 4-0 with a 1.56 ERA and 46 strikeouts in six April starts. His four wins tied for the National League lead, while his 1.56 ERA is third in the league for the month. His 46 strikeouts are tied for fourth in the league. Harvey became [...]
Baseball America’s Jim Callis had hinted in a chat a couple of months ago that the Mets farm system would be ranked somewhere around 16-18 which many found too low. Well today, Baseball America released their 2013 Organizational Rankings and the Mets did come in at No. 16. Here’s the top 16 overall: 1. St. Louis Cardinals 2. Seattle Mariners 3. Texas Rangers 4. Tampa Bay Rays 5. Miami Marlins 6. Boston Red Sox 7. [...]
My dad and I have never gone to a Mets game together before. Sure we’ve watched countless games on TV, been to see the Ducks and the Islanders, went to the Giants ticker-tape parade together, and have even caught a few Orioles games when we visit family in Maryland. But never have we both made it to Flushing with each other. Whenever I have gone, it has always been with friends. We have always tried [...]
The stars were out at the New York Hilton Saturday night at the 90th annual Baseball Writers’ Association of America (BBWAA) Dinner. This year’s award winners received their hardware, and of course, R.A. Dickey was the main event. Dickey took home the 2012 NL Cy Young Award and was honored with the BBWAA’s “Joe DiMaggio Toast of the Town” award for forging a special bond with the New York fans. Before Dickey took to the [...]
I got these pictures emailed to me from one of our readers Eileen (Always Amazin), and I thought you’d love to see them. Meet Metsie, all 2.8 pounds of him… Apparently, Metsie was thrilled about R.A. Dickey winning the Cy Young award when this shot was taken. Metsie looks a little bewildered at times, like most Mets fans, writes Eileen… Thanks for sending these in… It’s our first MMO Fan Shot that were actually shots! [...]
Now that it’s official that R.A. Dickey has won the NL Cy Young, hopefully the trade talks surrounding him begin to subside. It’s sad that the Mets are in such a financial bind that they can’t find the money to lock up a Cy Young award winner to a contract extension. Sure, the arguments for trading him make sense. His value is at an all time high, and the Mets could maybe get back [...]
David Wright has been called “unclutch” during his Mets career. That may be the case overall, but that certainly wasn’t the case today, as ne belted an opposite-field, three-run homer that proved the difference in securing R.A. Dickey his 20th win of the season. It’s fitting that the Mets unofficial captain came through in a huge spot. The blast gave the Mets a three-run lead, and they wound up needing all three of those runs, [...]
Updated Post 8/9 According to Adam Rubin of ESPN New York, Terry Collins said he no longer plans to use R.A. Dickey on short rest through the remainder of the season. Collins intends to use Jeremy Hefner in the rotation if he needs to give a starting pitcher extra rest, but will continue to use Dickey in his normal turn through the rotation. Updated Post 8/3 Terry Collins told reporters before the game that he does not [...]
R.A. Dickey has been a cornerstone of the New York Mets’ early success during the 2012 season. While he had pitched well in the previous two seasons, nobody was expecting a sub-3.00 ERA, thirteen wins and an All-Star appearance. His success has presented the Mets with a dilemma, and the team must decide whether to keep Dickey or trade him. * How will the Mets perform? The Mets were one of the surprise teams of [...]
