The Mets started began the second half of the season by winning two of three against the Philadelphia Phillies. Things got off to a rough start on Friday night, as the Phillies beat the tar out of the Mets, but things got better for the orange and blue behind the two young pitchers of the future. Here are the 3N3 from this past weekend. Matt-Tastic: With the series tied at a game a piece, All […]
That’s the cover of this year’s Mets Media Guide. I was taking a look at it this morning and thought I spotted a curious omission. Before you read any further, take a look and see if you can spot it too… Here is who is featured on the cover starting at the top and going left to right: 1. Tom Seaver 2. R.A. Dickey 3. Jon Matlack 4. Mike Piazza 5. John Stearns 6. Carlos […]
I was 12 years old in the summer of 1978 when I heard the coolest news ever… My friend Lee called and told me he’d heard from a friend of a friend who knew where Mets second baseman Doug Flynn lived. And it was just down the street from me! True, this wasn’t Jerry Koosman or Steve Henderson or Craig Swan. But it still was a real live Mets player. Lee and I both lived in Bayside […]

By the time I arrived at Shea Stadium in mid-June, a Dwight Gooden start had become a New York event. I had been watching Gooden baffle opponents on television over the first two months of the 1985 season. The first month he shut out the Philadelphia Phillies twice and the Cincinnati Reds. From May and early June he pitched into the seventh inning in all seven of his starts. He was four days younger than […]
When the day arrives, and it’s clear Zack Wheeler has “figured it out,” this will be the day he will appreciate most. New York Mets fans will prefer to reflect on Wheeler’s first MLB start, six shutout innings vs. Atlanta, but Sunday will be one of those starts that will educate the Mets rookie most as he moves forward. The Mets and Wheeler were roughed up by the Washington Nationals 13-2 Sunday at Citi Field. […]
Pitching coach Dan Warthen told Mike Puma of the New York Post that he would adjust the rotation to allow Matt Harvey to start the All Star Game if Bruce Bochy gives him the nod. “That is 20 days away, a lot could change,” Collins said, referring to postponements that could alter the rotation. “But if he gets picked to start the game, I would think we would adjust it.” All-Star rosters are set to […]
