Mets righthander Matt Harvey will have his sore right elbow examined by Dr. James Andrews this week for a second opinion to help him determine if he should opt for Tommy John surgery as the Mets team doctors initially advised. Manager Terry Collins said before Sunday’s game confirmed the news, but added that no date has been set yet. Harvey was placed on the 15-day disabled list on Aug. 27 with a partial tear of […]
The Mets (63-77) lost to the Indians (76-65) by a score of 9-4 on Saturday Night at Jacobs Field (I won’t call anything about that Cleveland team “Progressive” until they change their logo.) Jon Niese took the ball for the Mets and was dreadful early, giving up six runs — five were earned, and the unearned run was a result of his own error — in the first two innings. Niese was leaving everything over […]
Brooklyn Cyclones’ manager Rich Donnelly has said on many occasions this summer that runs in the New York-Penn League are as precious as gold. But based on the past few games, his team has been filthy rich. The Cyclones pounded out 15 hits in an 8-1 victory Monday night at MCU Park over the Tri-City Valleycats, the Single-A short season affiliate of the Houston Astros. “It’s baseball,” said Donnelly, slightly perplexed about where his team’s […]
Power hitters don’t usually run very well. And speedsters aren’t prone to hitting home runs. So it would be reasonable to say that players who are among the league leaders in home runs don’t usually find their names near the top of the triples leader board. Of course, there have been some exceptions over the years. Hall of Famer Stan Musial led the league in triples in 1948, 1949 and 1951. He hit 39, 36 […]
Updated Post Ike Davis went 1-for-3 with a long home run of Ian Kennedy last night as the Mets beat the Padres 5-2 at Petco Park. Davis also drew two more walks, prompting a sigh from Keith Hernandez in the first inning, “Uh… nice walk.” In Davis’ defense, he took four straight pitches out of the strike zone and it was obvious Kennedy wasn’t giving him anything to hit despite walking Marlon Byrd before him. Ironically, […]
Brooklyn Cyclones’ righty reliever Johnny Magliozzi had no thrown more than a single inning at any time this summer. But with the game on the line in the top of the eighth, Cyclones’ manager Rich Donnelly called on the reliever to get the final six outs. Magliozzi came through in dominant fashion as Brooklyn held on for a 6-4 win Friday evening at MCU Park over the Vermont Lake Monsters, the Single-A short season affiliate […]
It was hockey jersey night at MCU Park in Coney Island Wednesday evening, and the Brooklyn Cyclones waited until well into the third period – also known as the bottom of the eighth inning – to wake up from a game-long drought and earn a 3-1 victory over the Hudson Valley Renegades. The win moves the Cyclones to 27-26 and just one game behind the McNamara Division-leading Aberdeen Ironbirds, who defeated the Staten Island Yankees […]
Matt Harvey is in the midst of a spectacular season, his first full one in the major leagues. But as he showed on Tuesday night against the Dodgers, even he is susceptible to an occasional hiccup now and then. The Mets’ ace lacked command of his off-speed pitches and the Dodgers made him pay by tagging Harvey for four runs on eight hits over six innings pitched. His ERA took a hit rising from 2.09 […]
What a week we just wrapped up and as is usually the case, there’s plenty of storylines and news we can talk about before the Mets take the field at 10:10 PM against the Los Angeles Dodgers. Who’s At Short? For the time being Terry Collins is fully intent on going with Omar Quintanilla as his everyday shortstop. “I’ve yet to see why Omar Quintanilla should lose his job. All he does is make plays […]
