Just call him Mr. Clutch or as our own Daniel Nelson likes to refer to him, “El Dramatico”. Yes, of course we’re talking about the incredible Jordany Valdespin who came off the bench once again and delivered another dramatic pinch-hit home run to help the Mets beat the Marlins 7-6 and salvage the final game of the series. Valdespin continues to display an uncanny ability for rising to the occasion whenever the Mets need a [...]
Starting Lineup Jordany Valdespin – CF Daniel Murphy – 2B David Wright – 3B Ike Davis – 1B John Buck – C Lucas Duda – LF Mike Baxter – RF Ruben Tejada – SS Dillon Gee – RHP Game Notes John Buck drove in his 21st run yesterday.

He was charged with six earned runs and didn’t beat around the bush after the [...]

Overpowering and arguably flawless in yesterday’s start against Miami, Harvey had one of those seamless starts pitchers rarely have in their third spring training game. Dillon Gee, today’s starter against Detroit in Lakeland, has no such illusions. “My mechanics are off,’’ Gee said. “It will be just my third start of the spring, so they are bound to be off. Spring training is for trying to [...]
It’s a fact: Every team experiences some sort of injuries over the course of a 162-game season. For some reason however, it always seems the Mets are plagued with the injury bug more so than other teams.
