Providing the weather clears, the New York Mets will run out another rookie this afternoon: lanky center fielder Matt den Dekker. This kid can fly and run down a ball in the gap with anybody the Mets have, but is a slow study at the plate. Den Dekker’s opportunity comes in the aftermath of the trade of Marlon Byrd to Pittsburgh. A capsule of den Dekker’s production was last year when he hit .340 at Double-A Binghamton, but […]
Matt Harvey is going to miss a significant amount of time; not much else is known at this moment. What has been well-documented however, is just how much of an impact the Dark Knight of Gotham has had on the New York Mets organization and their fans alike. The mood surrounding this franchise has plunged further and further into disappointment, animosity and frustration ever since Adam Wainwright‘s infamous breaking ball struck the black leather of […]
With the Mets trading Marlon Byrd to the Pittsburgh Pirates today, the door is left open for one of the biggest enigmas in the organization: Matt den Dekker. Den Dekker, 26, was a fifth-round draft pick in 2010 after an illustrious career at the University of Florida. The outfielder gradually rose through the ranks of the minor leagues before having a breakout first half in 2012 with Binghamton, hitting .340/.397/.563 with 21 doubles, four triples, […]
TIGERS LEAVE METS IN TATTERS AFTER 11-3 MAULING The Mets got pounced on by the Tigers who beat them 11-3 this afternoon at Citi Field to complete a three game sweep and leave them licking their wounds. Dillon Gee started for the Mets and wasn’t nearly as sharp as we’ve seen from him of late. The right-hander let up four runs and got knocked around for ten hits including home runs to Andy Dirks and […]
Yesterday, after the team recalled Lucas Duda from Triple-A Las Vegas and optioned outfielder Mike Baxter back to the minors, the former everyday left fielder for the Mets was all smiles. “Anytime you’re in the big leagues everything is good,” Duda said. ”I wasn’t hitting too good in my rehab assignment, so it is what it is. I’m just glad to be back. I’m glad to be here and a part of the team. I’ll play anywhere.” […]
The Detroit Tigers are just one more win away from completing a three-game sweep of the Mets after beating them 3-0 on Saturday evening at Citi Field. Matt Harvey started for the Mets and the Tigers had no problems knocking him around, and despite only scoring two runs off the Mets’ ace, they roughed him up for a career-high 13 hits over his 6.2 innings of work. Harvey never looked comfortable and was in and […]
Thoughts from Joe D. I will be very shocked if the Toronto Blue Jays hang onto Alex Anthopoulos as the team’s general manager after this season. He took a team with a talent rich farm that was once ranked among baseball’s best and overturned it for aging and expensive players that have sunk the team to the bottom of the division instead of the top as he had hoped. A new GM will quickly look […]
Detroit Tigers at New York Mets Citi Field • 7:10 PM Doug Fister (10-6, 3.63) vs Daisuke Matsuzaka (0-0, 0.00) Starting Lineup Eric Young, Jr. – LF Daniel Murphy – 2B Marlon Byrd – RF Ike Davis – 1B Wilmer Flores – 3B Juan Lagares – CF Travis d’Arnaud – C Omar Quintanilla – SS Daisuke Matsuzaka – RHP Game Notes Greg Burke was optioned to Triple-A Las Vegas so the Mets could clear a roster […]
The Mets dropped a heartbreaker to the Braves, 4-1, in 10 innings on Wednesday afternoon after a blown call at first base gave Atlanta an extra out and Chris Johnson blasted a go-ahead three-run homer off reliever Greg Burke. Ugh… Jon Niese started and delivered another solid performance allowing one run in 7.0 innings and racking up nine strikeouts. He was cruising along until the top of the sixth, when Niese gave everyone a scare and let […]
