It honestly felt like no one on the roster needed that walk-off yesterday more than Travis d’Arnaud. I do not need to sit here and highlight the fact that our young backstop has been struggling recently — considering it’s already been brought up over and over on talk radio, Mets Twitter and what have you. The problem, of course, is that a healthy d’Arnaud was supposed to help anchor us offensively — but the actual […]
Time does not heal all wounds. The pain of what happened on September 11th, 2001 has not subsided. We can put the tragedy of what took place on that day in the back of our minds, but we can never put it out of our hearts. Every single day, Americans are still dying because of 9/11. Their lives continue to raise the death toll of that tragic day. Let’s take some time to remember those […]
The Mets have signed journeyman starter Aaron Harang to a minor league deal. He will report to Triple-A Las Vegas. Harang, 35, had a 5.76 ERA with 6.5 K/9 and 2.1 BB/9 in 22 starts this season. The Dodgers traded Aaron Harang early in the season to the Colorado Rockies — who flipped him to the Seattle Mariners. The New York Mets will be his fourth organization in 2013 alone. The 6’7” right-hander has pitched for […]
Mets GM Sandy Alderson appeared as a guest on ESPN Radio with Mike Lupica on Wednesday, and said that the injury to Matt Harvey will not change the team’s plans going forward. “It’s not a dream unrealized,” Alderson said. “It may be a dream deferred.” His goals remain the same which he says is to “stockpile talent and lower the payroll to reinvest in team and win ballgames.” Alderson said that losing Harvey is a […]
Congratulations to Mets top prospect Travis d’Arnaud who got just enough of a Rick Porcello fastball to send it over the left-center field wall for his first career home run. It was a two-run shot in the fourth to put the Mets ahead 3-2 at the time, and after a hearty round of congratulations from his teammates, the crowd at Citi Field clamored for a curtain call to which D’Arnaud obliged them with a quick wave of […]
It’s not exactly the fight of the century or even the Thrilla In Manilla, but when the Mets’ Matt Harvey and the Tigers’ Max Scherzer oppose each other on Saturday at Citi Field, it will mark the first time in MLB history that both All-Star Game starters have faced off at any point during the same regular season. According to the Wall Street Journal, All-Star starters have only matched up twice before, both in the World […]
In an effort to bolster the rotation after injuries to Jeremy Hefner and Jenrry Mejia, the New York Mets today announced the club agreed to terms with righthanded pitcher Daisuke Matsuzaka on a one-year contract. Matsuzaka will wear #16 and will start tomorrow’s night game against Detroit. A corresponding move will be announced prior to tomorrow’s game. Matsuzaka, 32, pitched in Cleveland’s organization this season, making 19 starts for Columbus (AAA) of the International League. […]
Terry Collins told reporters tonight that after reviewing a new MRI on Jeremy Hefner‘s elbow, they have confirmed that the righthander will need Tommy John Surgery. The MRI showed that Hefner has a partial tear of the MCL in his right elbow and that only surgery can repair the damage, which would wipe out most if not all of his 2014 season. Hefner is considering getting another opinion, but the surgery could happen soon, according to […]
It was a good week for top prospects Rafael Montero and Travis d’Arnaud; they were both recognized by Baseball America today in their weekly edition of the Prospect Hot Sheet. Montero has been hot for a while, but his most effective performances since getting promoted from Binghamton have come in his most recent starts. He made two appearances for the Las Vegas 51s this week, going 2-0 with a 0.64 ERA, one earned run, six […]
