Deadspin decided to an unscientific polling this season of who were the best and worst beat writers for every major league team. Today, they have released their results: For the Mets they selected: Best: ESPN New York’s Adam Rubin is by far, the best Mets beat reporter. Jorge Castillo is a distant second. Worst: The Daily News’ Andy Martino is the worst and it’s by a country mile. He openly roots against the team, doesn’t do his research, brings no […]
According to Marc Carig of Newsday, Mets manager Terry Collins said Friday that he would like to get Wilmer Flores some chances at second base during his time with the team. The 22-year-old Flores is currently filling in at third base for the injured David Wright, but could increase his chances to stick with the big club if he shows he can adequately handle second base as well and add to his versatility. Good move […]
Yesterday, during the game, I tweeted the following after Marlon Byrd launched his 17th home run of the season: Marlon Byrd > Michael Bourn X 2 Marlon Byrd > Justin Upton + BJ Upton Marlon Byrd > Scott Hairston X 10 Marlon Byrd just freaking rocks! — Mets Merized Online (@MetsMerized) July 21, 2013 Anybody disagree with me? This afternoon, Marc Carig of Newsday ties it all up rather succinctly: As the trade deadline approaches, the Mets have […]
It is official… The Mets have agreed to terms with first-round pick 1B Dominic Smith who signed his contract today at Port St. Lucie where he has been working out. Smith, a big left-handed first baseman out Serra High School in California, was selected 11th overall in this month’s First-Year Player Draft. The Mets reportedly signed Smith for under slot at about $2.6 million, just below the $2,840,300 value for the 11th overall pick. I […]
I hardly agree with anything Terry Collins says – except on the rare occasions when he quotes me. While talking to reporters about Matt Harvey, the Mets manager offered up this gem: “He’s been in every game he’s pitched. If we scored him some runs, he’d be 9-0.” Harvey, who starts this afternoon’s game against the Marlins, is coming off a no-decision against the Yankees that the Mets came from behind to win off closer […]
If you want to get your Matt Harvey fill on this Mets off-day, check out this post by Marc Carig of Newsday, who caught up with the Mets right-hander after yesterday’s start against the Cards. Carig says that during one point in the game, Harvey reached back and unleashed a 100 mph fastball against the Cardinals’ Jon Jay according to the scoreboard at Roger Dean Stadium. Scouts behind home plate, who he said were “armed […]
Mets left fielder Lucas Duda was a late scratch from Friday’s 6-2 victory over the Tigers. Duda left camp briefly to be examined for a non-baseball-related health issue, reports Marc Carig of Newsday. General manager Sandy Alderson categorized the issue as minor and Duda refused to elaborate. “Everything’s good,” he said. Manager Terry Collins told reporters that Duda might also be out of the lineup for this afternoon’s game against the Marlins.
Updated by HoJo on 2/24 Pedro Feliciano will be shut down for at least two weeks from baseball activity while he wears a heart monitor while the team doctors continue to monitor could be a potentially serious heart condition, It’s not exactly clear if Feliciano has a hole in his heart or even if that’s the cause of his irregular heartbeat. The next two weeks will help doctors come to a more exact diagnosis of […]
