Dillon Gee pitched around some early inning trouble, and the offense put up enough runs to put the game out of reach as the Mets won the game, 8-5 and the series versus the Rangers Game Notes Dillon Gee was effective, if not spectacular in his six innings of work today. He allowed three runs on eight hits, walking two and striking out one while allowing one HR. Gee looked to be doomed in the [...]

Update June 21, 2011 5:30 PM According to Michael Baron over at MetsBlog.com, Sandy Alderson spoke at CitiField today with reporters and according to SNY producer Matt Dunn, he said he reached out to the agents of Jose Reyes recently, but were told he will not negotiate a new contract until after the season. I find this interesting considering the story of Reyes having spoken to Scott Boras in some capacity was brought to mention by the [...]
Jonathon Niese pitched a solid game and the offense sparked by Jose Reyes beat the Atlanta Braves 4-3 on Tuesday. Game Notes Jonathon Niese went a quality six and one third innings, giving up two runs on five hits, striking out five and walking one. After some early season control trouble Niese has been extremely good, as has the whole Mets pitching staff. To see this staff come around without Johan Santana and without anything [...]
According to Mike Puma in today’s New York Post, Carlos Beltran has expressed his desire to see Jose Reyes in a Mets uniform in 2012 and beyond. After the Mets scorched the Pirates for seven runs over the final three innings of yesterday’s 7-0 victory, Beltran had this to say about the front office and his teammate: “They should make the effort and try to sign him, for sure. He grew up in this organization. [...]
Chris Capuano and the bullpen combined for a shutout and the offense exploded in the late innings for a 7-0 win against the Pirates Game Notes Chris Capuano pitched a strong seven innings today, giving up three hits, allowing six total baserunners (two via walk, one via HBP) and five strikeouts. Capuano kept inducing weak contact and surprisingly, ground balls which allowed him to get out of trouble. The only thing that worries me about [...]
Eight years ago yesterday, the Mets were playing the Texas Rangers in an interleague game. The Mets fell short in that game, losing by the final score of 9-7. It was just another game on the schedule for the Mets, who were on their way to a 66-95 season under first-year manager Art Howe. But one significant thing did happen on June 10, 2003, for that was the day Jose Reyes made his debut for [...]
Dillon Gee had another stellar outing, going eight innings and the Mets offense kept it rolling in the 8-1 slaughter of the Pirates Game Notes Dillon Gee had another outstanding inning, and outside of a troublesome first inning, Gee pitched masterfully. Gee’s final line was eight innings, one run allowed on eight hits with NO walks and five strikeouts. Gee did receive some help from his defense with some great plays by Jose Reyes and [...]

Game Notes Jonathon Niese had his third straight quality outing today, going seven and two-thirds while allowing one run on three hits, walking four and striking out eight. Although the walks don’t look flattering, they were each to the [...]
It’s funny how the two players that we all figure will be traded by the end of the season—Jose Reyes and Carlos Beltran—are carrying the New York Mets. After Reyes’ go-ahead triple Tuesday night, Beltran came through with a game-tying double off Kameron Loe in the eighth inning last night. However, it hasn’t just been Reyes and Beltran coming through in clutch situations. Despite the tough loss, first-time cleanup hitter Angel Pagan had the go-ahead [...]
R.A. Dickey pitched a great game today going eight strong innings and thanks to some good run support on the heels of Jose Reyes, the Mets won 6-4 and won the series against the Braves Game Notes R.A. Dickey look substantially better today then he had in his last outing. Although his foot still seemed to be bothering him, specifically when running after batting, he was in control today. Dickey went eight innings, allowing one [...]
