In the biggest non-story of the day, the Mets plan to decline the $25 million option on Johan Santana and will pay the $5.5 million buyout instead. There’s still a chance that they could bring back Santana this winter on a one-year deal, but don’t count on it. It’s most likely that Johan has pitched his final game with the Mets. He ends his Mets career with a 46-34 record, 3.18 ERA and 1.20 WHIP […]
With Saturday’s loss, the Mets have clinched themselves a protected draft pick. However, it is starting to seem like this will be irrelevant. Reports on Friday indicated that the Mets do not plan on pursuing any of the top free agents, with the possible exception of Shin-Soo Choo, who will likely cost more than what the Mets seem ready to offer. The Mets were horrible this season, so you don’t need anything but common sense […]
The Mets (73-86) lost to the Brewers (72-87) by a score of 4-2 on Thursday night at Citi Field. Dillon Gee took the ball for the final time this season, and struggled a bit. Dillon gave up 2 walks and 4 singles in the 2nd inning, which allowed Milwaukee to score the only 4 runs they would need. Gee did settle down after that, pitching scoreless ball the rest of the way before departing after the […]
The Mets (72-85) beat the Reds (90-68) by a score of 4-2 on Tuesday night at Great American Ballpark. Jon Niese took the ball for the Mets and was terrific in what may have been his final outing of the year. Niese gave up 8 hits in 7 innings, but only allowed 2 runs and struck out 6 (issuing one free pass to Brandon Phillips). Each team managed to put together a few hits in […]
The Mets (70-84) defeated the Phillies (71-83) by a score of 5-4 in a rain-shortened game on Saturday night in Philadelphia. Dillon Gee got the win, tossing 6+ decent innings (4 runs, 7 hits, 0 walks, 3 strikeouts) before the game was called off in the bottom of the seventh. The Phillies struck first on a sac fly in the 2nd inning, but the Mets were able to tie it thanks to David Wright‘s 2nd […]
The Mets (63-77) lost to the Indians (76-65) by a score of 9-4 on Saturday Night at Jacobs Field (I won’t call anything about that Cleveland team “Progressive” until they change their logo.) Jon Niese took the ball for the Mets and was dreadful early, giving up six runs — five were earned, and the unearned run was a result of his own error — in the first two innings. Niese was leaving everything over […]
While his team boarded a flight to San Francisco for the start of a three game series, pitcher Shaun Marcum boarded another plane bound for St. Louis to be examined for numbness and tingling in his cold right hand. He will be visiting with the same specialist who diagnosed Dillon Gee with a damaged artery in his pitching shoulder and a blood clot. Ultimately it led to season ending surgery for Gee. For now, the plan is to […]

The New York Mets transferred RHP Jeurys Familia from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list. It’s just a procedural move to open a spot for RHP David Aardsma on the 40-man roster. Familia underwent surgery Wednesday to remove bone spurs from his right elbow and is likely out for the season. Original Post Terry Collins told reporters before tonight’s game that Jeurys Familia will likely miss the remainder of this season. “I […]
