Updated on 4/18 by Joe D. And right on cue, in his column for the New York Post, Joel Sherman says that injuries to D’Arnaud’s back, knee and now foot could suggest that he is “injury-prone.” Let us also remember the ticking clock does not stop. D’Arnaud is no baby,” Sherman writes. “He is 24 — six months older than Jason Heyward. The Mets’ best-laid plans had D’Arnaud and Zack Wheeler breaking in this year and […]
“On a cold night you have to hit the ball 25 feet farther. So, in other words, if the fence is 338 feet and you hit the ball 338 feet, you’ll be 25 feet short.” – Ralph Kiner, attempting to explain the effect of cold weather on the flight of a baseball. The New York Mets and Minnesota Twins played last Friday night’s game in between snowflakes. According to Major League Baseball, the game time temperature was […]
As we try and get our minds back to the normal activities, it is hard to not think about these tragedies and how so many people are affected. You kind of feel selfish to think that you are one of the lucky ones that are not affected by this event. But being a father of two young boys ages 7 and 3, it tears my heart apart to know that not only were there adults […]
I was on the phone with Joe D. as I was driving to the park and he asks me if I think they’ll get the game in? I look out my window, light snow showers, “I think so,” I tell him. “Just some light snow at the moment.” I hadn’t been off the phone for more than 30 seconds when the snow got harder, then it started doing something that I think they call sleet, […]
Four of New York’s minor league teams open action tonight and here are tonight’s starters: RHP Zack Wheeler is scheduled to start for Las Vegas (AAA) of the Pacific Coast League at Sacramento. Game time is 10:05 PM EDT. RHP Rafael Montero will take the hill for Binghamton (AA) of the Eastern League at Akron. Game time is at 6:35 PM EDT. RHP Hansel Robles will take the mound for St. Lucie (A) of the Florida State League vs. Jupiter. […]
With Pacific Coast League action kicking off tomorrow, April 4, MiLB.com has released their top ten prospects to watch from the PCL in 2013. The Mets will have two of the top five players on that list when play opens up tomorrow in Travis d’Arnaud (4) and Zack Wheeler (5). It’s unclear how long many of these players will remain in the PCL, as they are some of the more exciting prospects in all of baseball, […]
I’ve been reading many pieces in the national and local press suggesting that 2013 stands to be an especially fallow year for the New York baseball fan. The reasoning behind this assertion is based almost entirely on two assumptions: 1. The Mets will continue to tread the path of mediocrity with little or no hope of securing a post-season berth. 2. The Yankees, with their roster gutted of talent by injuries and free agent defections […]
Texas Rangers shortstop Elvis Andrus cashed in a big way by agreeing to an eight-year, $120 million contract extension. The deal hasn’t been finalized, but should be made official on Thursday. There is a clause that would allow Andrus to opt out after the fourth year if he chooses, but since the extension doesn’t kick in till after his current contract expires after 2014, that means he’s signed at least through 2018, which would be […]
LIVE BLOGGING FROM CITI FIELD This game’s over and the Mets pounded the Padres 11-2 today at Citi Field. It was an “All Hands On Deck Effort” by this revamped Mets team which was great to see. Collin Cowgill with a huge Mets debut and big contributions also from Byrd, Buck, Wright, Tejada, Murphy and of course Jon Niese who looked sharp in his first start of the season. Fun game and it was fun […]
