I cannot help but remember back in mid-May when ESPN New York’s Adam Rubin commented in his blog about the lack of “moneyball” players the Mets have signed since Sandy Alderson took the reigns in New York. That post by Rubin sparked this conversation on MMO. First, I think the phrase “moneyball” players is a little silly. Essentially what Adam is asking is, where are the undervalued players signed to reasonable deals that are outperforming […]
WHEELER WOWS THEM AT FRISCO! Matt Cain lasted 21 minutes, 0.2 innings and 36 pitches as the Mets tagged him for three runs to take a lead in the first and escort Cain to the showers early. Daniel Murphy started the scoring off with an RBI single and John Buck followed it up with a two-run single. Cain has never left the game against the Mets without pitching at least five innings. Marlon Byrd tacked […]
By the time I arrived at Shea Stadium in mid-June, a Dwight Gooden start had become a New York event. I had been watching Gooden baffle opponents on television over the first two months of the 1985 season. The first month he shut out the Philadelphia Phillies twice and the Cincinnati Reds. From May and early June he pitched into the seventh inning in all seven of his starts. He was four days younger than […]
The All Star voting is now over and all Met fans can do now is wait with baited breath to see if David Wright maintained his lead over Pablo Sandoval for the privilege to start at third base in the 2013 All Star Game at Citi Field. In an official release by MLB, the voting for the National League’s starting third baseman was called the closest and tightest battle on this year’s ballot. With all […]
12:04pm: The Mets have made it official by announcing they’ve signed Yeffry de Aza for $475,000. Some scouts feel he’ll end up transitioning over to second base. Here’s what Badler has to say about the Dominican shortstop: He’s 6 feet, 170 pounds with average speed, solid hands and an average to above-average arm. He’s earned praise from scouts for being a hard-nosed, high-energy player. 11:31am: Ben Badler reports the Mets have also come to terms […]
Citi, the New York Mets and the Mets Alumni Association presented by Citi hosted an unveiling of a new outdoor playground at the Shorefront Y, a United Neighborhood Houses (UNH) member, Monday in Brighton Beach, a continuing effort to help the New York/ New Jersey area following the devastation from Superstorm Sandy. Mets Hall-of-Famer and New York native John Franco was on-hand for the event, as well as Citi representatives and over 250 YMCA children to […]
When the day arrives, and it’s clear Zack Wheeler has “figured it out,” this will be the day he will appreciate most. New York Mets fans will prefer to reflect on Wheeler’s first MLB start, six shutout innings vs. Atlanta, but Sunday will be one of those starts that will educate the Mets rookie most as he moves forward. The Mets and Wheeler were roughed up by the Washington Nationals 13-2 Sunday at Citi Field. […]
Here’s a look at David Wright’s All Star Game batting practice jersey… It complete with the “C” as one of the official captains for the Home Run Derby. These are the jerseys that they will be wearing for the Home Run Derby and are different from the actual All Star Game jerseys that do not feature the skyline. Both Wright and Robinson Cano of the New York Yankees will don the “C” as captains of […]
Small sample sizes be damned, but Eric Young has been going out of his way to display some of the talent that made this organization want to target him in the first place — and no, I’m not talking about the fact that he’s arbitration eligible. Picked up recently in a deal for Collin McHugh, who I can only wish the best to, Young has been tearing it up since his arrival in New York. […]
