This story isn’t about Jordany Valdespin, this story is about the N.Y. Mets and their borderline comical PR machinations. The Mets had another major twist in the Valdespin saga yesterday. On this episode of How the Valde-spins, Jordany was notified that he would be demoted to AAA where he could get regular at bats. Jordany proceeded to have a conniption, a melt-down, a tantrum, an epic hissy fit or whatever you want to call it. […]
Sandy Alderson told reporters before Saturday’s game that the decision to skip his start yesterday was based largely on reducing his workload. “He would pitch in the All-Star Game whether he pitched today or not,” the Mets’ GM said. “That wasn’t the reason we made the decision. We made the decision on his projected workload over the course of the season. His blister was a factor and the ability for him to pitch a side […]
Jeremy Hefner was drafted by the Mets out of high school in the 46th round of the 2004 June amateur draft. He chose not to sign. One year later, the Mets selected Hefner in the 48th round of the June amateur draft. Once again, Hefner did not sign. Instead, he transferred from small Seminole State College in Oklahoma to the much-larger and more scoutable Oral Roberts University in Tulsa, where he hoped to improve his […]

There was some talk the past couple of days regarding Matt Harvey‘s pitch count, and an 210 innings limit that Sandy Alderson mentioned about a month ago. That innings cap would have Harvey’s season end approximately two weeks before the end of the regular season. Joe D. also pointed out that it seems like Harvey’s effectiveness declines after he throws his 100th pitch. We are seeing it more and more these days — as pitchers make higher […]
According to ESPN.com and Major League Baseball, the Mets have two of the five most popular jerseys purchased this season. Probably to nobody’s surprise, Matt Harvey finds himself #5 on this list, but quite frankly to my surprise, David Wright is ranked #4 on the list! Jersey sales are a funny thing. Often times when a player changes teams you’ll note a spike in jersey sales, but this year’s doesn’t really represent anything like that. […]
