The New York Mets wind up winning two out of three games in opening series against the San Diego Padres. All three games featured excellent starting pitching for the Mets, and the first two games featured some pretty decent offense for the Amazins’ too! Here are the 3&3 for the series. Matt Harvey: The kid was outstanding – make that brilliant – in Wednesday night’s game. Matt Harvey tossed seven shutout innings, and struck out […]
What a game by Matt Harvey last night, and if you missed our interview with him on Monday, you should check it out. As we stated last night, this is exactly what aces are supposed to do. The young right-hander went 7.0 innings and surrendered one hit last night, tied for the fewest he’s allowed in a single game in his career. He also went 7.0 innings and allowed one hit on September 19 vs. […]
The cold didn’t bother Matt Harvey last night, but the Mets will pay close attention this afternoon to Dillon Gee if the temperatures drop during his start against the San Diego Padres. In the quest of rooting for good stories, Gee is up there in his attempt to come back from emergency surgery to repair a blocked artery in his shoulder that caused his right hand to go numb. Simply, you can’t throw if you can’t feel the ball. […]
I was able to meet with Matt Harvey on Monday and we had a nice little exchange while he sat in front of his locker thinking about his upcoming start on Wednesday night against the Padres. There is a likable quality to this young man and it has nothing to do with his pitching. He speaks with confidence that doesn’t border arrogance. He has a big time arm without the big time attitude. He’s attentive to your questions, and […]
Mets Lineup Collin Cowgill – CF Daniel Murphy – 2B David Wright – 3B Ike Davis – 1B Marlon Byrd – RF Lucas Duda – LF John Buck – C Ruben Tejada – SS Matt Harvey – RHP Game Notes On Opening Day, the starting lineup included three players making their Mets debut: Collin Cowgill, Marlon Byrd and John Buck. The trio combined to go 6-14 (.429) with five runs and seven RBI. Frank Francisco […]
If you’ve found yourself uninspired about the 2013 New York Mets. If you’ve been looking for a reason to get excited about this season. If you’ve been looking for a solitary reason to believe. Well, the Mets’ 11-2 Opening Day demolition of the San Diego Padres was exactly what you needed. How could you not take notice? The game featured more than adequate starting pitching, solid relief work, clutch hitting and even a grand slam. […]
How appropriate. It was overcast for much of the day, but shortly after this afternoon’s 11-2 rout of the San Diego Padres, it started to rain on Citi Field. If there could be universal laws in baseball, is it isn’t supposed to rain on Opening Day and the home team has to win. Let the Padres win Wednesday night and when they return to San Diego, but today belonged to the Mets, played as complete […]
With the first pitch of 2013 set to be thrown in less than nine hours, it’s about time we reflect on the spring. This past weekend, I visited Viera and Port St. Lucie to catch two Mets spring training games: Thursday vs. the Nationals, Friday vs. the Cardinals. There wasn’t much to be excited about in Thursday’s game. Shaun Marcum was supposed to start, and, as we all know, he was scratched. His status is […]
It is the same in every spring training camp with winners and losers. Booms and busts. With camp ending today, the Mets had their share of both. THE WINNERS Jon Niese: With Johan Santana a question going in, Niese entered camp No. 1 in the rotation and pitched deserving of that title. Not surprisingly, he was named Opening Day starter. With Santana gone for the year, he’s the de facto ace, at least until Matt […]
