It’s always fun to examine the first impressions of a new season. For example, it is safe to say John Buck will not finish with 292 RBI. However, you might get interesting odds if you believe the 3-2 Mets will continue their pace and outplay the 1-4 Yankees. That being said, the measuring stick for success or failure is their starting pitching. If they get innings it keeps them in games and the bullpen – which has […]
I arrived at Citi Field last night as any eager Met fan after an impressive Opening Day win. But there was one problem: It was absolutely freezing! That hasn’t stopped me before, but based on the wind, I had a feeling I was in store for a low-scoring game. I even turned to my buddy before the game and told him to look at how quickly the flags on the top of the stadium were […]
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 […]
There must be times Mets manager Terry Collins sits in his office with the door shut, puts his head in his head and wonders how he is going to handle his team. There are probably times he thinks retirement might not be such a bad thing. In most camps, positions and batting orders are set a week from Opening Day. That isn’t the case with the Mets, where Collins is still juggling his options with […]
The worst-case scenario seems imminent for the Mets. They faced a myriad of pitching questions entering spring training, including: Johan Santana’s availability after shoulder surgery; Dillon Gee coming off surgery to repair an injury to his shoulder; and injury-prone Shaun Marcum. All three have been answered in the negative. One would think a free agent would report to camp in shape, but Marcum didn’t and insisted a long-tossing program was what it took instead of […]
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 […]
Lucas Duda got off to one of the more forgettable starts that a player can have when spring training opened up back in February. In fact, for the month of February, he was 1/10 at the plate with seven strikeouts. With numbers like those, fans began to question whether Duda would ever be able to put it together at the big league level. Duda was given a few days off after his slow start, and the fact that […]
A few years from now, or perhaps in July, this battery could be a big deal. Matt Harvey and Travis d’Arnaud represent the Mets’ future, and today they provided a glimpse. Harvey, already in the rotation, gave up two runs in 5.1 innings and was backed by two hits and two runs scored by d’Arnaud in a 3-2 victory today over St. Louis. In an 80-pitch effort, of which 54 were strikes, Harvey struck out six and […]
