You have to score runs in order to win games, but you also need to pitch. Which Mets teams since 1980 have been the best at run prevention? Let’s take a look-see, shall we? Runs Allowed Per Game 1988 532 runs 3.32 1985 568 runs 3.51 1986 578 runs 3.57 1989 585 runs 3.61 1990 613 runs 3.78 1998 645 runs 3.98 1991 […]
Sometimes I wonder why I even read some Mets related posts on Facebook or Twitter. If you were to gauge the Mets fan base on the way General Manager, Sandy Alderson has run the team, well you would think that this team was based out of Miami. Yes, I realize that the lunatic fringe faction of our fan base ( a small – yet loud minority) will never be satisfied with Alderson until this team […]
I had the chance to talk to New York Mets left-handed pitching prospect Jack Leathersich last February before he headed to Port St. Lucie for the start of Spring Training. With the news that Jack has been promoted to Triple-A Las Vegas, I thought today would be the perfect time to look back at what me and him talked about during our phone conversation where we both covered a lot of ground. Jack is 2-0 with three saves […]
Last Night’s Quick Scores Las Vegas edged out Fresno, 6-5. Binghamton shut out Trenton, 8-0. St. Lucie was shutout by Lakeland, 5-0. Savannah dropped Lexington, 9-2. Prospect Pipeline ESPN has included the names of the other 20 players believed to potentially be facing MLB discipline, and Mets top-hitting prospect Cesar Puello as well as Ex-Met Fernando Martinez are among those included. Cesar Puello also continues to tear the covers off of baseballs. In last night’s victory, Puello was 3-for-4 […]
Mets Minors 4/15 Report: Montero Is Just Plain Loco, Nimmo Still Raking, Mazzoni Scratched With Sore Arm
Last Night’s Quick Scores Savannah (5-5) lost a close one to Rome, 2-1 St. Lucie (7-3) toppled Bradenton, 8-2 Binghamton (6-4) dropped New Hampshire, 6-3 Las Vegas (6-5) beat Fresno in eleven innings, 5-4 Prospect Pipeline Zack Wheeler, who had walked six batters in his first 8.1 innings this season, did not walk any Fresno batters in Sunday’s matchup. He now has seventeen strikeouts and six walks this year, which is a solid ratio. At this […]
It’s not exactly the variety of a film festival when watching the Mets in spring training. It’s the Nationals, Braves, Marlins and Cardinals on a rotating basis. For the Mets in Port St. Lucie, it’s like watching the same episodes of Seinfeld over and over. After awhile, you know how “The Contest’’ will end. For a young guy like Matt Harvey working on a pitch, those teams don’t have to worry about the film as they can see him first […]
A pair of Chicago Cubs centerfielders, Jimmy Qualls (1969) and Joe Wallis (1975), stole two of Tom Seaver’s early bids for a no-hitter. One year after being traded from New York to Cincinnati, Seaver threw a no-hitter for the Reds. Nolan Ryan never pitched a no-hitter – as a New York Met – but after being traded to the California Angels in 1971 he nudged Mets fans every couple years, throwing seven no-hitters. “Every time […]
Former Mets pitcher Frank “Sweet Music” Viola is back with the team, but this time he’s not with the big club. Viola signed on as the pitching coach for the Brooklyn Cyclones—the Mets Single-A short season affiliate. The St. John’s University product and East Meadow, Long Island native says he’s happy to be back in New York, though in a different capacity than last time. “Getting my foot back in the door in the coaching […]
While the big club has played good baseball over the past few weeks, New York Mets Single-A short season affiliate, the Brooklyn Cyclones, open their season this Friday night on the road against the Staten Island Yankees. The borough of Brooklyn is preparing for another exciting summer of baseball, especially after the Cyclones came up one game short last season for the New York-Penn League Championship title. The team held its preliminary workouts this week, […]
