David Wright continued his torrid hitting and Jonathon Niese went a strong seven innings and the Mets swept the Diamondbacks with an 8-4 win, their fourth in a row. Game Notes Jonathon Niese had one of his best outings of the season, going seven innings giving up three runs, two earned on six hits while walking two and striking out three. Niese stayed within a gameplan, and minus a few hard hit pitches, was very […]
Strange ways, here we come… I believe that with the trade of Jeff Francoeur last night to the Texas Rangers, the Mets have essentially conceded the season. Not that I truly believed there is a “chance” that things could turn around, but you can never tell with baseball. I guess I’m a bit naive that I refuse to give up hope until mathematical elimination is complete. However, I am not going to go so far […]
Mike Puma of the NY Post writes, Jon Niese could be facing his own version of the Joba Rules. Mets pitching coach Dan Warthen told The Post yesterday that a discussion will be held this week about whether Niese’s innings should be limited for the remainder of this season in an effort to preserve the 23-year-old lefty’s arm. Niese pitches tonight against the Pirates, and has pitched 133 innings so far this season. That hardly sounds […]
Do you recognize the baseball player in the photograph to the left? No? Then welcome to the club. The man in the Padres hat is San Diego’s backup centerfielder Chris Denorfia, and he just became the latest player to keep the Mets from finally recording their first no-hitter. Last night, during the second game of the day-night doubleheader between the Mets and the Padres, Chris Denorfia was given the start over regular centerfielder Tony Gwynn, […]
Born on the same day the Mets won their second World Series title, Jonathon Niese pitched like a champion last night against the San Diego Padres. In shutting out the Padres, he allowed only one man to reach base all game, a double to centerfielder Chris Denorfia to lead off the third inning. Niese became the 34th pitcher in Mets history to throw a one-hitter, joining greats such as Nolan Ryan, Tom Seaver and Dwight […]
Despite a couple of comebacks, both of which fell short, the Mets lost 10-8 to the Marlins today who completed a four-game sweep in which they outscored the Mets 28-16. Game Summary Jon Niese started the game but came out in the third with an apparent hamstring injury after making an errant throw to first base fielding a bunted ball near third base. The Mets say he’s fine, but sent him for a precautionary MRI. The league […]
Mets took game two of the series against the Braves winning 3-1 and reach .500 on the season. Game Notes Jonathon Niese pitched another great 5 1/3 innings of baseball. He fell into some deep bases loaded trouble in the first inning but was able to fight his way out of it. Niese allowed five hits, walked a season high five batters while striking out six, and only allowed one run for another great outing […]
Competition is a good thing, and in Mets camp there is a lot of it. Many players have entered Mets camp this year hopeful they can win a job with the big league club. Let’s break down this completion position by position and name the favorites. Center Field – Carlos Beltran’s injury leaves a void in center field. The Mets acquired Gary Mathews Jr. to compete with Angel Pagan for the opening day center field […]
The Mets 3-Day Mini Camp got underway yesterday and not surprisingly it was chock full of several interesting storylines, player updates and revealing quotes. Rather than flood the blog with a dozen or so individual posts, I hope you don’t mind an extensive recap instead for each of the three days beginning with this mornings recap of Day One. Lets get started… Johan Santana – All eyes will be on Johan Santana today as he throws […]
