It never comes easy for the Mets my friends, even when our ace Matt Harvey is on the mound. But the good news is that as the curtain closed on first act of Super Tuesday, the Mets defeated those annoying Braves by the score of 4-3 today at Turner Field. Harvey flirted with history today, taking a no-hitter all the way into the seventh inning, but alas it wasn’t meant to be as Jason Heyward [...]
Please, join me as I throw a handful of dirt on the coffin of Jordany Valdespin’s career as a New York Met. The one I used to call El Dramático for his ability to spark rallies and hit long home runs is getting playing time for one reason: he’s being shopped. Don’t expect him to be with the Mets past the trade deadline. I’ve been a staunch defender of Valdespin since the Mets’ first intrasquad [...]
Daniel Murphy drove in two, but it wasn’t nearly enough for the Mets. The Chicago Cubs beat the New York Mets by the score of 6-3 tonight at Citi Field. The loss dropped the Mets to 14 games under .500 for the first time this season. Shaun Marcum was in trouble early and struggled with his command, giving up a run in the first and then four more in the second. His record falls [...]

Two years ago, never in my wildest dreams did I think I would be typing the first six words of this post, but it’s true. Daniel Murphy has proven himself as a formidable second baseman in 2013, and jerking him around the diamond is not going to do him or the Mets any favors. The 28-year old Jacksonville-native has had a remarkable year on both sides of the diamond this season, most impressively in the [...]
Jeremy Hefner started the game and while he was charged with six runs, only one of them were earned. He let up eight hits and walked two in 7.0 innings pitched while striking out two. One of the hits was a three-run blast by Allen Craig in the fifth. Greg Burke allowed two unearned runs in the sixth inning and David Aardsma allowed a solo home run to Shane Robinson in the eighth inning to complete [...]

Sandy Alderson was a guest of Mike Francesa on WFAN on Monday afternoon and had a lot to say on a variety of topics which I summarized for you below. Before that, check out what John Harper of the Daily News had to say about Sandy’s latest version of “Cry Me A River”. It was hard to tell if Sandy Alderson was baring his soul or throwing himself at the mercy of Mets fans during his WFAN [...]
I’m feeling very ill tonight so I hope you don’t mind this very condensed version of tonight’s game. The Mets blew a 2-1 ninth inning lead as the Washington Nationals tagged closer Bobby Parnell for two runs in their dramatic 3-2 walk-off win. Jeremy Hefner threw an absolute gem, holding the Nats to one run on four hits while striking out seven. His only blemish was a solo home run to Ian Desmond. As I [...]
