They say that baseball is a game of inches, or centimeters if you find yourself in the British Isles. You could take that old baseball adage and apply it in so many ways, but basically it juxtaposes the reality of how easily the game can change on a dime or how suddenly the momentum in a game can shift. But for now I want to shift your focus back to the Mets and our newest […]
Just wanted to update this post and say that Daniel Murphy has been named National League Player of the Week for the period ending September 1. Congrats to Murph and nice job by Steph for making a great call! There were close games, there were blowouts. There was dominant pitching, there was offensive outbursts. This week in Mets baseball was mostly 50/50, splitting the series from the lowly Phillies and taking 2/3 from the recently surging […]
Sometimes I wonder why I even read some Mets related posts on Facebook or Twitter. If you were to gauge the Mets fan base on the way General Manager, Sandy Alderson has run the team, well you would think that this team was based out of Miami. Yes, I realize that the lunatic fringe faction of our fan base ( a small – yet loud minority) will never be satisfied with Alderson until this team […]
The Mets have made a few roster moves today (and yesterday, for that matter). Here’s a summary of everything I can see that’s going on: Matt Reynolds and Kevin Plawecki may be done in St. Lucie with the FSL season, but they will get a taste of the Eastern League playoffs with the Binghamton Mets. In 430 at-bats with St. Lucie this season, Reynolds hit .226/.302/.335 with five homers and 46 RBIs. Plawecki split time […]
Update 8/29, 5:45 PM by Satish Ram The Mets announced earlier on Twitter that Victor Black was the PTBNL in the deal that saw the Mets send Marlon Byrd, John Buck, and cash to the Pirates. This was old news, however, as speculation ran rampant as soon as the trade was announced. The new news, coming via Adam Rubin, is that the Mets are working with a technicality that allows Black to take 72 hours to […]
With Tuesday’s trade of Marlon Byrd and John Buck, the Mets got a very intriguing prospect from the Pirates, 19 year-old second base prospect Dilson Herrera. Herrera is a converted third baseman out of Cartagena, Colombia who is three years into his professional baseball career, and in his second year playing in the U.S., after spending time in the Venezuelan Summer League in 2011. He is listed at 5’10″ and 150 pounds, very small, even for […]
According to Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports, the Mets and Pirates have agreed on Vic Black as the player to be named late in the trade that sent Marlon Byrd and John Buck to the Pirates. The Mets sent cash to Pittsburgh as well in exchange for Dilson Herrera,who we profiled yesterday, and Black, who will either join the team once he clears waivers tomorrow or after the season if he is claimed by another […]
“We all want to win as many games as possible, but my job is to match the short term with the long term,” he said. “We felt this was in our best interest.” That’s what Mets general manager Sandy Alderson had to say to reporters before tonight’s game, in response to trading catcher John Buck and outfielder Marlon Byrd. Sandy added that second base prospect Dilson Herrera as well as a player still to be named […]
