Updated by Joe D. Jon Niese made his final rehab start last night for Double-A Binghamton. In his final tuneup before a start against the Diamondbacks in Arizona on Sunday. Niese pitched 5.0 innings and allowed two earned runs on four hits and three walks while striking out six batters. Upon activating Niese, the Mets will return to a six-man rotation, which will allow Jenrry Mejia, Zack Wheeler and Matt Harvey to all pitch on […]
Mike Puma of the New York Post added some more context to an earlier statement and reported that a team executive was happy with the team’s performance since June 18 and that it bodes well for Terry Collins whose contract expires at season’s end. (Link via MetsBlog) “I think they’re doing a good job of sprinting to the finish line,” the official said. On Monday, a Mets executive (I assume the same one) told Puma […]
In discussing the Rangers acquisition of Matt Garza, which you can read about here, Matt Cerrone dropped an interesting line in his post about whether the Mets could get Stanton or not.. I’ve been told by people in baseball that, to get Stanton today, a team like the Mets would need to give them Matt Harvey. Cerrone goes on to discuss that the mindset is that the Marlins are looking for an equal value trade […]
I asked my writers who they thought was the biggest surprise for the Mets in the first half, and one of the benefits of having 25-35 active writers is that it gives me a good well-rounded sense of where the Mets fan base is on these roundtable questions I like to do. As expected there were some varied answers, and few added comments as well. Here is what we came up with. Daniel – The […]
Yesterday, after I posted on what someone from Men’s Journal had sent me and asked to share their article for our readers, I didn’t quite get a chance to weigh in on the totality of the article which covered a lot of ground. I simply posted a quick excerpt for them with a link to their full article. It’s quite apparent that Matt Harvey has a taste for the finer things in life, is huge […]

He uses an orange tan coloring for the glove itself, with blue lacing and blue bindings to make it specific to the New York Mets and him.

Echoing the sentiments around MMO, Mets special assistant J.P. Ricciardi told Jim Duquette of SiriusXM Radio this morning that the team is not looking to trade outfielder Marlon Byrd, and that it would take something serious for the Mets to move him. Byrd, who is batting .263 with 15 home runs and 49 RBI this season, spoke to MMO on Wednesday and expressed his desire to remain with the Mets, but understood that baseball is […]
I just wanted to add some new comments David Wright made to Newsday regarding his recent slump that has seen him go 10-for-his-last-49 at the plate with just one home run and two RBI, dropping his average to .277 for the season. “I’m maybe trying to do a little too much and trying to make some things happen. I can’t be going up there and getting myself out or swinging at pitcher’s pitches early in the […]
Don’t look now, but Ike Davis is showing signs that he might be coming out of his season-long slump. “That’s three days in a row that Ike has hit the ball hard,” Keith Hernandez said on Sunday. Davis collected two hits and three RBIs in yesterday’s loss to the Marlins, including a mammoth 425 foot homer that saw him swing at full extension for the first time in a long while. It was good to see […]
