The Futures Game Was Bright With Syndergaard, Montero and Nimmo On Hand Well that was fun.. The game’s best young prospects converged on Citi Field, home of the New York Mets, to take part in the Futures Game, where the U.S. Team defeated the World Team by a score of 4-2. As for the good guys, Noah Syndergaard started for the U.S. Team and allowed one hit in his inning of work, while Rafael Montero started for […]
People fear what they do not understand. There’s no way to deny that. The truth is, baseball is still a game where people continue to hold on to “the way things used to be” in their hearts. It’s why there is no full replay yet, it’s why people are against the DH in the NL even though the NL is at a disadvantage during the regular season or AL during the World Series… or why […]
There really is something special about going to Citi Field on a day when Matt Harvey pitches. If the Mets are in the midst of yet another miserable season, you’d never know it. Walking into Friday’s game, the excitement and buzz over the main attraction was truly overwhelming. Families and friends all bustled towards the main gate eager to be seated and ready for the game’s very first heated pitch. A simple glance at the […]
After a torrid start to the season, second baseman Daniel Murphy, who occasionally moonlights at first base as well, is mired in one of his longest funks of the season and perhaps his career. With the ongoing exploits of Marlon Byrd and David Wright, and the resurgence of newly acquired Eric Young Jr., Murphy’s slump is getting little airplay. I charted his month-by-month numbers and it’s not looking very pretty for Murph. Murphy has been […]
Wheeler’s debut should help SNY’s sagging ratings according to Neil Best of Newsday who writes: SNY is on pace for the lowest Mets ratings in its eight-season history, stuck with a team out of contention earlier than any other in that span, and suddenly has been gifted with a marquee attraction. “I think this team, fan base, organization, and maybe a little bit the announcers, need a jolt of excitement, and he provides that,” Ron Darling […]
One of the most entertaining things at a ball park are all of the very interesting people that you get to meet. My personal favorites are the fans that try to chant so much that their voices turn hoarse by the time the game is over. Most often these fans are drunk and belligerent, leading to some incredibly funny moments. This Mets fan, who presumably had to drink just to get him through the game, takes […]
David Wright spoke out about the overzealous campaign by the Mets to get him voted to the All Star Game. “It’s nice when the organization is trying so hard to do something for one of their players and I can’t thank them enough for that,” Wright said. “But at the same time, I’ve asked them to kind of back it down a little bit, especially with the stuff between innings. You appreciate what they’re trying […]
In four decades of rooting for the Mets my most painful memory, without a doubt, was when Yadier Molina deposited an Aaron Heilman pitch over the wall in Game 7 of the 2006 NLCS. I literally could not believe what I saw. Seeing is believing—but not in this case. 2006, like 1986, was OUR year. The 162 games were a mere formality. It took us all winter to recover but when April 07 rolled around, we […]
With the hinted announcement that Zack Wheeler could be making his major league debut on June 18th, the Mets are officially on the clock for the future. June 18th is vital to the Mets future success, and it’s probably not for reasons you may think I am going to say. They need to trade Wheeler, if not for the team’s sake – then for his sake. Wheeler is never, ever going to live up to […]
