Updated by Mitch Petanick on May 17, 2013 Adam Rubin has reported that Zack Wheeler is scheduled to start throwing again today, and is back with the team in Las Vegas. He was placed on the seven day DL, retroactive to his last start. He will rejoin the rotation next Wednesday when the team is in Iowa. Wheeler received a cortisone shot last Wednesday after being diagnosed with inflammation of the AC joint in his [...]
The most famous No. 1 in Mets’ history has some advice when it comes to the man who is quickly becoming the most infamous No. 1 on the Mets. “Give the kid a chance,” Mookie Wilson said Friday when discussing Jordany Valdespin. “He is a very spirited kid, very young and has a lot to learn, no question about that. But some things are being blown out of proportion. I think we need to back up and not overanalyze [...]
As the Knicks were getting pasted in Indianapolis, the Mets did their part to put New York sports fans in a gloomy mood in tonight’s 10-4 loss to the St. Louis Cardinals. It was the Mets’ fifth straight loss to drop them to eight games under .500. Since Jordany Valdespin’s tenth-inning grand slam, April 24, beat the Dodgers to go to 10-9, the Mets have gone 4-13. ON THE MOUND: The Mets needed innings from Dillon [...]
Updated by HoJo at 6:00 PM Scott Atchison, who experienced numbness in his fingers while pitching Monday, has been placed on the disabled list according to Assistant GM John Ricco. Atchison was examined Tuesday in New York by team doctors who said there is “no new structural damage.” The 37 year old veteran reliever opted not to have Tommy John surgery last year despite a ligament tear in his right elbow. Collin McHugh has been promoted from [...]
What a beauty of a cover and an instant Mets collectible for all you die-hards out there. Get is signed, get it framed, I know I will. Matt harvey has gone from New York sensation to a National sensation in less than a half season worth of starts. SI.com’s Tom Verducci, calls Harvey: “The most fascinating young power arm in baseball.” “In an era dominated by pitchers, Matt Harvey has the ferocity of stuff and [...]
The Dominator took to the mound for the Binghamton Mets tonight, in temperatures that made it seem more like an April night in the upstate New York city, than a night in the middle of May. Rafael Montero stood on the mound, with his glove in front of his face, so the batter could only see a pair of eyes staring in, and his mouth breathing steam like a locomotive. He didn’t shut down Akron [...]
We’ve all heard and read about how much winning means to Matt Harvey. On MMO alone I believe I counted at least two posts entitled “All Matt Harvey Cares About Is Winning.” On MetsBlog you’ll find three times as many such posts. Harvey reminds us all of how much he wants to win every five days. He’s the textbook definition of a fierce competitor. But thanks to Steve Serby of the New York Post, we [...]
Frank Francisco is experiencing elbow pain after his latest outing with Single-A St. Lucie, and will head to New York to visit with team doctors at the Hospital for Special Surgery, according to Terry Collins. Francisco hasn’t pitched since he last appeared in an inning of relief for Single-A St. Lucie. He hasn’t allowed a run five innings over five relief appearances with them. yesterday, Adam Rubin reported that Francisco would head to Double-A Binghamton to continue his [...]
Today, I’m going to stray from my usual 3 Up & 3 Down to write an entry that has been kicking around in my head for quite sometime now. This entry is about the first owner of the New York Mets, Mrs. Joan Whitney Payson. One SNY feature, the only one I consider to be worth watching, is Mets Yearbook. In one particular episode, the year was 1963, they showed the final game at the [...]
On this week 21 years ago, Anthony Young started a streak he wished he hadn’t… Don’t, OK? Save your breath – and Anthony Young’s time. Just get to the question. That’s right, the question; the inevitable query about losing. He won’t mind answering because, well, the reply is always the same. “I pitched well during the stretch. It just happened. I don’t feel like I deserve it. I will be known for this forever. It was destiny.” [...]
Come on, admit it… At one time or another you made a joke about Daniel Murphy at second base since the day he took over the position once Jose Reyes was not re-signed and Ruben Tejada slid over to shortstop. Was the criticism harsh and often times deserved? Maybe… Maybe not… Ok, yes it was… But seeing is believing and when I mentioned how much better Murphy has been defensively a couple of weeks ago on Twitter, you all [...]
