I wanted to update this post with two quick items that were reported in the last 24 hours. John Fay of the Cincinnati Enquirer who covers the Reds and has better intel than some of the speculation I’m seeing elsewhere (MetsBlog 4/$40), says that Choo’s strong season should put agent Scott Boras in a position to ask for at least a four-year, $60MM contract. That’s a starting point and not an ending point. Boras is also the agent […]
Well, I’ll do my best to put a positive spin on this one, but a loss is a loss no matter what. Zack Wheeler got back on track against the Washington Nationals tonight with seven sharp innings — which is especially impressive considering how well the Nationals have been hitting the ball coming into the series. He gave up eight hits over that span but walked only one — and in fact, allowed his only […]
You might be frustrated and disgusted by watching the Mets lose to the Nationals, but it is far better than not having any Mets to watch at all. October has to be the worst month because there’s baseball, but baseball without the Mets. At least in November there’s the start of the free-agent season, highlighted by the Winter Meetings, which is winter’s World Series. January? You can see spring training from there, and February, regardless […]
Last week in Mets baseball: not very good. The week began and ended with Dice-K on the mound; one start being horrendous and one being pleasantly surprising. The team went a dismal 2-4 this week, scoring a combined total of 18 runs. The offense was, once again, asleep; making the absence of David Wright sting more and more as the days go on. Along with the inability to capitalize with RISP, the pitching wasn’t stellar […]
The Mets (63-77) lost to the Indians (76-65) by a score of 9-4 on Saturday Night at Jacobs Field (I won’t call anything about that Cleveland team “Progressive” until they change their logo.) Jon Niese took the ball for the Mets and was dreadful early, giving up six runs — five were earned, and the unearned run was a result of his own error — in the first two innings. Niese was leaving everything over […]
Mets at Indians • 6:05 p.m. ET LHP Jon Niese (6-6, 3.66) vs. RHP Corey Kluber (7-5, 3.54) Starting Lineup Eric Young, Jr. – LF Daniel Murphy – 2B Zach Lutz – DH Lucas Duda – 1B Justin Turner – 3B Juan Lagares – RF Matt den Dekker – CF Travis d’Arnaud – C Omar Quintanilla – SS Jon Niese had his last start cut short by a left leg cramp, but he did not think it […]
Mets at Indians • 7:05 p.m. ET RHP Zack Wheeler (7-3, 3.36) vs. LHP Scott Kazmir (7-7, 4.36) Starting Lineup Eric Young Jr., LF Daniel Murphy, 2B Josh Satin, DH Andrew Brown, RF Lucas Duda, 1B Justin Turner, SS Juan Lagares, CF Travis d’Arnaud, C Wilmer Flores, 3B Well it’s great to see Wilmer Flores back in the lineup and playing third base. He has been dealing with that sore ankle issue as well as battling […]
Who remembers John Milton Rivers? You know, that speedy center fielder that used to run funny and played for the Yankees during their 1977 and 1978 championship years? I guess you probably know him better by his baseball name, Mickey… Last week, I had an interesting debate with the executive producer of SNY, when I asked him why two of his blogs posted that Daniel Huchingson was suspended for 50 games. “It’s his given name.” […]
I love baseball so much. The game has become such an integral part of me – it’s connected to my soul. When I’m on one of my retreats to the hospital, all I want to know is what the Mets did and how did Zack Wheeler look, or did I miss any transactions, but most of all, “did the Mets win?” I was so glad to be home to watch the game yesterday, mostly because […]
