At 1:47 PM I left my house to begin the journey to NYSEG Stadium in Binghamton, NY, home of the Binghamton Mets. I arrived nearly two hours later with over two hours to spare until the gates opened. I used this time to tour the campus of SUNY Binghamton University, my mother’s alma mater, and to sit down for a late lunch/early dinner meal at the Lost Dog Cafe. If you’re in the area, check […]
I think I’m going to have to step back from Mets Twitter for awhile. I see things flash across my timeline that just make me want to unplug my monitor and blast it to smithereens. After responding to one Mets blogger who remarked that Juan Lagares had a terrible arm after that baseball skipped by Wilmer Flores last night, I needed to school him on why he was totally wrong. It is because of Lagares’ arm, that […]
I thought I would share an interesting email exchange I had with Dave In Spain who I’m sure most of you know from MMO and several other popular Mets sites. I know they’d never ask the Captain, but do you think David Wright could ever be convinced to “volunteer” to move to left field? This would solve the Flores positional issue, leave Murphy in place, and make it easier to go all-in on Shin-Soo Choo or Jacoby Ellsbury […]
Mets have recalled Lucas Duda from his rehab and then optioned him to Triple-A Las Vegas. Terry Collins spoke to reporters before the game and it was clear the decision was based more on his defensive deficiencies more than anything else. “You know, with what we’ve got in the outfield and with what Ike (Davis) has done so far, I don’t know where we’re going to put him,” Collins said. The manager then added that […]
Pedro Alvarez Homers In Pirates 3-2 Win In front of a full house tonight at beautiful PNC Park, we were treated to a good, old fashioned (and quite frankly unexpected) pitcher’s duel between Jeremy Hefner and Charlie Morton, as the Mets battled the Pirates to open up their last set before the All-Star break. The Bucs got off to a quick start in the bottom of the first when Pedro Alvarez (oh, the irony) hit […]
Among the highs and lows to already come out of the first month of this season, the continued improvement of Daniel Murphy has certainly been one of the brighter spots to this point so far. Playing out of his natural position, Murphy has slowly made the proper adjustments on both sides of the diamond. After being jostled all over both the infield and outfield, Murphy has finally found himself a home at second base with […]
Terry Collins says a lot of things that will raise eyebrows whenever we go to these pre and post game press conferences. Many times he’ll say one thing on Monday and then do the exact opposite on Wednesday. Just to cite two recent examples remember when he proclaimed Collin Cowgill the everyday center fielder on Opening Day? Cowgill then proceeds to start in just 6 of the next 15 games. Or how about two weeks […]
By the end of last season, I was pretty excited about Ike Davis. He got off to a horrible start in 2012, but seemed to finish strong with 32 dingers. His average still sucked, but it seemed like things were finally starting to click for him. Now it’s a month into the season and he can’t get above the Mendoza line. Over in left field, Lucas Duda is getting on base and hitting with some […]
@nymets945 Pill will likely not make next start because of discomfort. Need to find out more about that. He is not on the DL. — Lynn Worthy (@PSBLynn) April 29, 2013 Vaughn said he felt a sensation in his arm after throwing out runner at plate. Called coming out “precautionary.” #BMets #Mets — Lynn Worthy (@PSBLynn) April 30, 2013 Hat tip for Lynn Worthy here for updating us on two minor league players, Cory […]
