I rarely post anything that isn’t Mets related, but I hope people had a chance to watch yesterday’s game between the Yankees and Red Sox in Fenway Park. Another chapter was written into one of the most storied rivalries in sports. In the second inning, Alex Rodriguez walked to the plate engulfed in a tidal wave of boos to face Ryan Dempster. Fans started chanting “You’re-a, chea-ter.” Dempster set the tone by throwing the first […]

The Mets have officially activated catching prospect Travis d’Arnaud after recalling him from Triple-A Las Vegas and then placed John Buck on paternity leave. He will make his much anticipated major league debut tonight against the San Diego Padres. “It will be nice to see him in a New York Mets uniform,” Mets general manager Sandy Alderson said. “At the end of three days, we’ll see where we are.” “There’s been a lot of anticipation and some […]
Terry Collins told reporters in San Diego, that Wilmer Flores has continued to show improvement on his injured ankle and that he performed some base-running drills before Friday’s game. After the game, Collins told reporters Flores did not suffer any setbacks and the 22-year-old should be able to play in tonight’s game. With the exception of a pinch-hit appearance Wednesday against the Dodgers, Flores has been out since Monday when he twisted his right ankle running the […]
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 […]
Things are starting to look bright. Despite David Wright landing on the DL and speculations about him not coming back for the season, the Mets seem to be doing just fine without him. Completing a sweep of the Rockies (who had won 8 straight against the Mets at Citi Field prior) and taking 2/3 from the fading Diamondbacks was a pleasure to watch. Dominant pitching matched with timely hitting, aggressive baserunning and great defensive plays […]
Oh, Rafael Montero…way to put the exclamation point on a wonderful night of Mets pitching! I was originally so disappointed in the organization’s decision to put Montero in Triple-A where he could have been victimized by the factors that make the PCL so bad for pitchers… and originally, it seemed like he would be. But he battened down the mental hatches, turned it up a notch, and has since been nothing but dominant over his […]
Well, well, well… Wheeler had his way with the D-Backs in this one and improved to 4-0 on the road as the Mets went on to slither past Arizona, 4-1. Wheeler didn’t do all the work, however, as he got some offensive support from our resident youth movement: Wilmer Flores and Juan Lagares. Wilmer Flores chased Ike Davis home with an RBI single in the fourth after Juan Lagares led off the inning with […]
BYRD TAGGED OUT AT HOME Last night, during the Mets’ 5-4 loss to the D-Backs, Marlon Byrd and Juan Lagares ran into trouble on the basepaths; Byrd getting thrown out at the plate trying to stretch a triple into an inside-the-park home run and Lagares getting nailed trying to stretch a double into a triple. Both outs proved very costly. After the game, Collins said he spoke with Lagares about making the final out of the seventh […]
