Mets defeat the Marlins 6-1 with great pitching from Niese and help from Wright’s and Davis’ bats. Mets continue their home playing dominance going 21-9 at home, the only team with 20+ wins at home. Game Summary Jon Niese had his first start since the middle of May, being out with a hamstring injury. Coming into the game, Jerry Manuel limited him to a 100 pitch count for the game. Throughout his short career with […]
The New York Mets have sent beleaguered starter-turned-reliever-turned distraction Oliver Perez to the DL (knee tendinitis) to make room for starter Jonathon Niese. Adam Rubin reported yesterday that others players thought Ollie’s knee was “messed up.” The move ends the firestorm, both public and private, over what the Mets should do with their $36 million man. As discussed on this site, every single day, Perez has refused a minor league assignment for a week-and-a-half, which […]
Yes, you did read the title correctly. Over the past week and a half, Mets pitchers have indeed been good for nothing, meaning they’ve been good enough to hold the opposition to practically nothing on the scoreboard. Pitching was not supposed to be the strong point of the 2010 Mets. After all, the Mets’ starting rotation was supposed to be made up of Johan Santana and The Four Rainouts. Mike Pelfrey had come off a […]
Last night Ike Davis made his major league debut, going 2-4 with an RBI. Jonathan Niese pitched a good game and Jenrry Mejia closed the game out for the win. It was a good night for the franchise prospects. I remember not too long ago there were reports that the farm system was dead. Some blamed it on the Johan Santana trade, but go ahead and look at what the prospects we traded away did […]
Ike Davis’ debut was a memorable one as he picked up the first two hits of his career. Angel Pagan’s homer broke the game open and the Mets defeated the Cubs 6-1. Game Notes Jon Niese got into a few jams, but time and time again he got out of trouble with a big strikeout whenever he needed one. He pitched a smart game and I was a little miffed to see him taken out […]
All offseason we talked about what is best for our beloved Mets. What’s best as far as free agency. What’s best as far as who is managing. What’s best from the GM position. What’s best at each position. And even what’s best from ownership. We all have had our very candid and pointed opinions and we share them like no other fan in the league does. Baseball fans are some of the most knowledgeable and […]
Joining in the latest new blog craze, we’ll be linking to you to some other great reads each day as you may have already seen on some other Mets sites. Last summer, before his leg betrayed him, Jon Niese provided his manager a glimpse of how good it all could be. Jerry Manuel has retained an image of a young left-handed starting pitcher finding and fighting his way through big league lineups. The Mets manager […]
This Spring we’ve gotten to look at some of our young prospects and they have impressed fans, the media and the team. The reports that the farm system was dead have been greatly exaggerated it seems. Fernando Martinez, Ike Davis, Jon Niese and Jenrry Mejia are having great springs, so of course there has been plenty of talk about them joining the big team once camp breaks. Coming into Spring Training, the fifth sport in the […]
The New York Mets have seen darker days than this; the midnight massacre in which Tom Seaver was traded away comes to mind. Another bad time for the Mets and their fan base was in the early 90’s when the Mets had the worst team that money could buy followed by the failure of Generation K. 2002 was a horrible year as the Mets signed a bunch of over the hill players for a lot […]
