Yesterday, after the team recalled Lucas Duda from Triple-A Las Vegas and optioned outfielder Mike Baxter back to the minors, the former everyday left fielder for the Mets was all smiles. “Anytime you’re in the big leagues everything is good,” Duda said. ”I wasn’t hitting too good in my rehab assignment, so it is what it is. I’m just glad to be back. I’m glad to be here and a part of the team. I’ll play anywhere.” […]
The Detroit Tigers are just one more win away from completing a three-game sweep of the Mets after beating them 3-0 on Saturday evening at Citi Field. Matt Harvey started for the Mets and the Tigers had no problems knocking him around, and despite only scoring two runs off the Mets’ ace, they roughed him up for a career-high 13 hits over his 6.2 innings of work. Harvey never looked comfortable and was in and […]
The Mets dropped a heartbreaker to the Braves, 4-1, in 10 innings on Wednesday afternoon after a blown call at first base gave Atlanta an extra out and Chris Johnson blasted a go-ahead three-run homer off reliever Greg Burke. Ugh… Jon Niese started and delivered another solid performance allowing one run in 7.0 innings and racking up nine strikeouts. He was cruising along until the top of the sixth, when Niese gave everyone a scare and let […]
The Player of the Year in the Florida State League for 2013 was just announced and St. Lucie Mets slugger Dustin Lawley got the nod with a spectacular season leading the FSL with 25 home runs 90 RBIs. He is coming off a hot week where he went 8-for-18 with one home run, two doubles and six RBIs as he looks to close out the 2013 with a flourish Last week, in our Boom or Bust […]
Just read this post on MetsBlog about Jose Abreu, the 26-year old Cuban defector that has been called a better hitter than Yasiel Puig. For the most part me and Matt Cerrone agree that it’s unlikely the Mets will do anything more than show some slight interest in what night be the next great baseball sensation, but ultimately he’ll prove to be too rich for the Mets’ taste. Here is what I wrote regarding Abreu […]
Zack Wheeler picked up his sixth win of the season and the Mets blasted two home runs as they opened up their homestand with a 5-3 win over the Atlanta Braves at Citi Field. Wheeler was a different pitcher than we saw in his last start and just focused on pitching his game rather than trying to strike everyone out. The result was a solid effort as he held the Braves potent offense scoreless for […]
All of a sudden, I’ve been reading with head-scratching confusion how several bloggers are suggesting the New York Mets trade Wilmer Flores. Why? What good would it serve other than just giving away a prospect? What could they possibly get for him now? Their confused reasoning is since the Mets have few position player prospects they should trade their best one for another. Yup, makes sense to me. Flores has been with the Mets for just […]

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, […]
