Over the next few months, there will be much discussion with regards to the Mets needs, and what they have to do to improve on this 2012 season. In fact, these discussions have probably been going on for about a month now. That’s one of the therapeutic things fans do when their team is in the dumps. Over the past month, I have seen very emotional fans voice their opinions on certain players in the [...]
Its hard to fathom now, but the Mets had a realistic shot at the playoffs only one month ago. Since then the team has taken a turn for the worst with a lot of poorly played baseball compounded by additional injuries. In the process, the current situation has re-highlighted some glaring issues that the team’s successful first half had given us the luxury of forgetting about. First and foremost, the team’s pitching staff desperately needs [...]
Jeremy Hefner started off the game rough, and the offense was stifled on the whole by Stephen Strasburg in their sixth loss in a row, 5-2 to the Nationals. Game Recap Jeremy Hefner, filling in the rotation in the spot vacated by the designation of Miguel Batista was hit hard in the early innings, giving up back to back solo home runs in the second. Hefner settled down, and after a Josh Thole error, Hefner [...]
Dillon Gee had an excellent outing today, and Ike Davis and Jordany Valdespin continued on their hot streaks as the Mets won 3-1 against the Cubs. Game Recap Dillon Gee had his longest and most effective outing of the season, going eight innings allowing one run on seven hits while striking out four. Gee had control of all of his pitches, and relied on the aggressive Cubs approach to walk zero batters as well as [...]

Niese consistently drew weak contact, and after allowing a second inning run, settled in to hold the Cubs scoreless for the next five innings. [...]
After a sweep of the Tampa Bay Rays, the Mets laid an egg in a home series against the Red, dropping all three games. The Mets needed a bounce back series against Baltimore, who has been terrific the first few months of the season. They did just that only alowing two runs in the three games and sweeping the Orioles at Citi FIeld. Once again the Mets show their resiliency a resiliency that they have shown all [...]
Coming off of a sweep at the hands of the NL Central leading Cincinnati Reds, the Mets should probably consider themselves lucky. Why you ask? Well, just as the Mets had done when sweeping the Tampa Bay Rays only a few days earlier, their crosstown rival Yankees did the Mets a favor in their sweep of the Washington Nationals. Its for that reason and that reason alone that the Mets remain only 4.5 games back [...]
It is pretty clear that everyone believes Ike Davis’ bat is hurting this team. Admittedly the last guy you want to see come up to the plate with men on base in an important situation is Ike Davis. And no one can deny this is true. Many are supporting sending him down to the Minors because he is holding this team back… Which begs the question…Holding this team back from what? Has he held us [...]
Jeremy Hefner didn’t have his best outing of the season, but was victimized by a home run and some defensive errors and the Mets offense struggled against the Nationals in their 5-3 loss on Wednesday Game Recap Jeremy Hefner coming off of his last outing couldn’t duplicate the same level of success today against Washington. Hefner went six innings, allowing four runs (three earned) on seven hits, walking one and striking out three. The aforementioned [...]
