UPDATE! Jeremy Hefner is being optioned to Triple-A Las Vegas, but could be hurt and may end up going on the Disabled List. Jon Niese has been activated and will start today’s game. Sandy Alderson said that Hefner will go to New York to see team doctors said he could end up on DL. He also added that if Hefner checks out medically, the Mets will use him for spot starts… This means the Mets […]
Jorge Castillo of the Star Ledger, spoke with Jenrry Mejia on his noticeably reduced velocity in his last start and for those of you who may have been worried, fret not. Mejia, has intentionally dialed back on his fastball velocity to avoid the discomfort in his elbow which is being caused by floating debris – a common occurrence for a pitcher who is a year removed from surgery. “You have to lower the velocity so you feel better during the […]
Sorry for the title, it wasn’t intended to be serious, but more of a retort I’ve been giving a lot of Met fans lately who seem to be in a rush to trade Wilmer Flores. A notion I find to be highly illogical given the precarious offensive dilemma the Mets find themselves in. I had a cool exchange with Michael Baron of MetsBlog a few days ago and I think it goes to my point. […]
Updated by Joe D. Jon Niese made his final rehab start last night for Double-A Binghamton. In his final tuneup before a start against the Diamondbacks in Arizona on Sunday. Niese pitched 5.0 innings and allowed two earned runs on four hits and three walks while striking out six batters. Upon activating Niese, the Mets will return to a six-man rotation, which will allow Jenrry Mejia, Zack Wheeler and Matt Harvey to all pitch on […]

Over the weekend when the news broke that Mike Baxter would get the call up before Wilmer Flores, the Mets fan base took to social media and other outlets to express their frustration. When it happened, I had a twitter discussion with MMO’s own Robert Patterson which I explained I thought calling up Flores for the weekend was not necessary but that they would call him up after the weekend when they knew the extent […]
By Joe Short After a disappointing series defeat to Kansas City this weekend, the Mets have a day off Monday before welcoming Colorado to Citi Field. Having won just one of their last eight clashes with the Rockies (including a series sweep at home in late August 2012) the Mets are outsiders in the MLB betting odds to claim the rubber here. However, despite bad head-to-head form, Mets fans can find solace in Colorado’s starting […]
There are bad ideas and then there are really bad ideas, and the New York Mets considering using Zack Wheeler out of the bullpen falls into the latter category. Wheeler has thrown a combined 114.1 minors-and-majors innings this season with a cutoff number at 180. With the intent of limiting his innings, manager Terry Collins and pitching coach Dan Warthen are mulling using Wheeler out of the bullpen. This is a bad idea on so many levels, beginning with the up-and-down nature of […]
