I have always been dubious about Bobby Parnell. Despite the electric fastball, he’s struggled with his command, control and composure on the mound. I always felt that Parnell had the most hittable 98-mph fastball in the history of the game. I personally was ready to give up on him last year, and suggested it was time to move on since he was due a hefty arbitration pay raise in the near future. It turns out […]
I’m sure you’re looking at the title of this post, scratching your head and wondering what the fudge I’m talking about. Well, the Ike Davis currently playing for the Mets is not the first player named Ike Davis to suit up for a major league team. And with the way the 21st century Ike Davis is playing, the 20th century Ike Davis might soon be the better of the two Ikes. Isaac Marion Davis (better […]
Marc Raimondi of the NY Post writes about Dwight Gooden who has a soon to be released biography entitled, “Doc: A Memoir.” The bio reveals some shocking and even sad details about his life in baseball and the toll that drug addiction took on his career and his life. Gooden believes if he had died the moment the Mets won the World Series in 1986, he would have saved many people a great deal of […]
On this week 21 years ago, Anthony Young started a streak he wished he hadn’t… Don’t, OK? Save your breath – and Anthony Young’s time. Just get to the question. That’s right, the question; the inevitable query about losing. He won’t mind answering because, well, the reply is always the same. “I pitched well during the stretch. It just happened. I don’t feel like I deserve it. I will be known for this forever. It was destiny.” […]
Keith Law of ESPN updated his Top 100 Draft Prospects. Here is who he projected at No. 11 where the Mets will pick in the Rule 4 Draft in June. Read the Full Rankings Here.

Beginning In 1985, as owner of the Milwaukee Brewers, Bud Selig and numerous other owners colluded to undermine free agency by agreeing not to sign other teams’ free agents. The owners were taken to court and eventually ended up paying 280 million in damages to the players. It was with this failed attempt at collusion that the seeds of the 1994 work stoppage were sewn. In 1992, Fay Vincent, then Commissioner of Baseball, openly criticized […]
It’s now been over seven years since that promising Opening Day in 2006, which was only day one of a season that took the Mets just a big swing away from the National League Championship trophy, and a visit to the World Series. With the exception of a few R.A. Dickey masterpieces, and a special no-hitter, there hasn’t been much cheering in Flushing since that magical run in 2006. The Metropolitans are a team that has always been […]
One of the most revealing things about the Mets’ 7-6 loss to the Nationals today, is that they are 7-1 this season when Jon Niese and Matt Harvey start, and 1-7 when they turn to Dillon Gee, Jeremy Hefner and Aaron Laffey. That says a lot, doesn’t it? Today’s sacrificial lamb was 26-year old Jeremy Hefner who made a quick exit lasting only four innings and allowing four earned runs on four hits, three walks and a […]
Since being promoted to the big leagues on July 26, 2012, Matt Harvey has lived up to, and at times, exceeded expectations. The former first round draft pick has become one of the toughest pitchers to hit in the National League since his debut and his confidence is on par with that of a veteran pitcher – a pitcher such as Tom Seaver, Jerry Koosman and Dwight Gooden, to name a few. With that in […]
