As the trade deadline nears, the debate grows more intense every day as to the approach the Mets should take with respect to their more marketable players. Should they approach next year with an expectation to contend and hold on to all key components of what appears to be a newly energized roster? Or should they be taking a hard look at the big picture for holes yet to be filled that may best be […]
To say Marlon Byrd has resuscitated his career in New York would be a gross understatement. Byrd was supposed to be a small piece in a puzzling outfield situation. But instead, he has become one of the top run-producing outfielders in the National League. After a grand slam on Tuesday and a two-run homer in yesterday’s sweep-completing victory over the Giants, Byrd now has 15 home runs and 49 RBI, making him the team leader […]
Marlon Byrd checks in with MMO to talk about his experience playing for the Mets, how he’s bounced back from his 50-game PEDs suspension, his time in the Mexican League, if he thinks he’ll be traded and how to carry the momentum into the second half of the season. MMO: David mentioned before yesterday’s game that it’s been great having you on this team for your presence on and off the field, especially for the […]
WHEELER WOWS THEM AT FRISCO! Matt Cain lasted 21 minutes, 0.2 innings and 36 pitches as the Mets tagged him for three runs to take a lead in the first and escort Cain to the showers early. Daniel Murphy started the scoring off with an RBI single and John Buck followed it up with a two-run single. Cain has never left the game against the Mets without pitching at least five innings. Marlon Byrd tacked […]
It was déjà vu all over again to start Game 2 of the Mets’ three-game series against the Giants. The Giants took an early 2-0 off Dillon Gee. This time the Giants scored on an Anthony Recker error trying to catch Brandon Belt stealing that scored Hunter Pence and a poor fielder’s choice by Daniel Murphy that allowed Belt to score. The Mets battled back in the fourth and hung three on Barry Zito on […]
Last night, just before the game, Mark Simon tweeted that in the last 30 days, the Mets led MLB with 90 Good Fielding Plays. Not surprising to see David Wright and Omar Quintanilla leading the pack here… The Mets had a rough start to the season defensively. The usually reliable Ike Davis was taking his slump to the field with him, Ruben Tejada was more erratic then ever, and Collin Cowgill and Lucas Duda didn’t […]
The Washington Nationals acquired Scott Hairston on Monday from the Chicago Cubs for minor league pitcher Ivan Pineyro. Chicago general manager Jed Hoyer said on a conference call there are “players to be named (later) on either side,” but they “will not affect the balance of the deal.” The Cubs signed Hairston to a two-year deal in the offseason to platoon in right field, but he struggled, batting .172 with eight home runs and 19 […]
According to what a team insider told Adam Rubin of ESPN New York, with the July 31 trade deadline three weeks away, they may not be buyers or sellers and will instead stand pat. Rubin says that Mets officials are expected to keep tabs with the Colorado Rockies about Carlos Gonzalez and the Los Angeles Dodgers about Andre Ethier. But given the tight nature of the NL West standings, those players very well won’t get traded anywhere, much less to the Mets. […]
The Milwaukee Brewers hung on to beat the New York Mets 7-6 tonight at Miller Park. What a difference a night can make. The Mets were able to contain the Brewer offense last night when they mustered a 12 run outburst, tonight they seemed unable to keep pace with the Brewers offense even though Yovani Gallardo’s fastball was straight and generally sat at around 89 – 90 touching 92 on only one or two occasions. […]
