One of the least glamorous jobs in baseball is that of the pinch-hitter/bench player/spare part/25th man. But every club has one of these guys, and on occasion they can rise to the level of star performer, if only for a game or two. Jim Beauchamp (pronounced “Bee-chum”) was one of these players, and after kicking around the league with the Cardinals, the Astros (including some games as a Colt 45), the Braves, the Reds, the Astros […]
New Hampshire Fisher Cats 3, Binghamton Mets 1 BINGHAMTON, NY (by Tim Heiman) – With the aid of two late home runs, the New Hampshire Fisher Cats beat the Binghamton Mets 3-1 in the home opener at NYSEG Stadium. Josh Rodriguez doubled down the left field line in the fourth inning, which got the offense started. After he moved over to third base on a wild pitch, he scored the first run of the game […]
Sand Gnats 5, Green Jackets 6 The Sand Gnats jumped out to an early lead over the Augusta Green Jackets in last night’s contest. They started off the game with three straight hits and jumped out to a two run lead in the first inning. Chad Zurcher led off the game withe a double, and was quickly driven in on a line drive base hit to left field by Brandon Nimmo. Nimmo advanced to second base […]
Guess who’s jazzed about the Mets so far? This guy is. The Mets won the first two series of the season 2-1 against the Padres and the Marlins—including a furious 9th-inning rally yesterday. Maybe not the most stellar competition, but the team has shown the range of its capabilities. In the first couple games, the Mets’ offense exerted its dominance as well as its starting pitching. In the latest win, the bullpen was solid and […]
First off, I’d like to start this post by congratulating Collin Cowgill. The man had a great Spring Training and a smashing Mets debut. He deserves to be a part of the Mets outfield in 2013. I look forward to watching him. “It’s a special day. My first time being in an Opening Day lineup. A lot of jitters but it’s exciting. The fans were unbelievable. Beautiful day for that,” Cowgill said. “It was an […]
The Mets announced Justin Turner will not go on the DL and will be on the Opening Day roster. Zach Lutz was optioned to Triple-A Las Vegas to make room for him. The Opening Day Lineup will look like this: Collin Cowgill, CF Daniel Murphy, 2B David Wright, 3B Ike Davis, 1B Marlon Byrd, RF Lucas Duda, LF John Buck, C Ruben Tejada, SS Jon Niese, LHP Niese will oppose San Diego Padres right-hander Edinson Volquez at 1:10 PM at Citi […]
Mets manager Terry Collins was a guest on WFAN this afternoon and lets just say that his whole demeanor about outfielder Jordany Valdespin has done a complete 180. Collins said that Valdespin is the leading candidate to hit in the leadoff spot for the Mets on Opening Day and whenever the Mets are facing a righthanded pitcher. “Right now, the way Valdespin has been swinging the bat in that spot, we’re leaning towards him,” Collins […]
How great has the Mets team chemistry been this season? Maybe it has to do with the fact that the team’s biggest headache—Jason Bay—has been sidelined for nearly three weeks with a broken rib. Bay has been cleared to resume baseball activities and will be heading to Port St. Lucie this Thursday. Terry Collins told reporters after last night’s game that Bay will play in minor league rehab games before joining the big club. However, […]
