First off, I would like to take the time out to wish all the readers of this blog a Happy Labor Day. If you’re one of the few that has to work today (cops, firefighters, etc) - thank you for your service. The Legendary French Renaissance writer , Michel de Montaigne once said: “So it is with minds. Unless you keep them busy with some definite subject that will bridle and control them, they throw themselves in disorder hither […]
Call me crazy, but… I’ve been thinking about the Mets upcoming offseason and wondering what the team will do to improve. They have two problems to address: 1. Not enough impact position players on the team, particularly in the power department. 2. Recapturing the interest of fans, or in other words, convincing fans that the team isn’t “all talk and no action.” Most of the free agent options discussed have drawbacks: Jacoby Ellsbury has an […]
Phillies at Mets • 1:10 PM RHP Ethan Martin (2-2, 6.33) vs. RHP Carlos Torres (2-2. 2.96) Starting Lineup Eric Young, Jr. – LF Daniel Murphy – 2B Andrew Brown – RF Lucas Duda – 1B Justin Turner – 3B Matt den Dekker – CF Anthony Recker – C Omar Quintanilla – SS Carlos Torres – RHP I didn’t expect Duda to get slotted at cleanup in his return to the lineup… Given the choices […]
Matt Harvey was in no mood to talk to reporters yesterday, telling a group of them, “I’m good” after they approached him wanting to know more about his tweet heard ’round the world. The injured ace, who is hoping to avoid Tommy John surgery, was diagnosed with a partially torn ulnar collateral ligament, but tweeted Tuesday that he’ll be back on the mound next April. I can’t say that I blame him for shunning the press after SNY […]
Although Daisuke Matsuzaka started the game effectively with only one run through four innings, he racked up 90 pitches and burned out in the fifth inning where he was tagged for three runs before his departure. Matsuzaka was removed after 110 pitches, but only 66 of them were strikes. He walked four batters over his short time on the mound, contributing to his high pitch count and overall struggles Matsuzaka actually hit John Mayberry […]
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.” […]
Detroit Tigers at New York Mets Citi Field • 1:10 PM Rick Porcello (9-7, 4.52) vs Dillon Gee (9-8, 3.60) Starting Lineup Eric Young, Jr. – LF Daniel Murphy – 2B Marlon Byrd - RF Ike Davis – 1B Justin Turner – 3B Juan Lagares – CF Travis d’Arnaud – C Omar Quintanilla – SS Dillon Gee – RHP Game Notes Dillon Gee has been one of the best pitchers in baseball throughout the month of August, and he’ll […]
I couldn’t help but notice something that was written on MetsBlog yesterday that suggested that Daniel Murphy was not worth $4 million dollars. Murphy is eligible for arbitration each of the next two seasons, and I expect he’ll earn around $4 million in 2014. It’s plausible to think Alderson views Murphy as not worth his price tag, at that point. It struck me as odd because I never viewed Murphy as being anything but a […]
Mets at Padres • 4:10 PM • Petco Park RHP Matt Harvey (9-4, 2.23) vs. LHP Eric Stults (8-10, 3.68) Starting Lineup Eric Young, Jr. – LF Justin Turner – 2B Marlon Byrd – RF Josh Satin – 1B Wilmer Flores – 3B Juan Lagares – CF Travis d’Arnaud – C Omar Quintanilla – SS Matt Harvey – RHP Game Notes: Reporters are announcing that reliever Greg Burke has been recalled from Triple-A Las Vegas and that Jenrry […]
