R.A. Dickey was spectacular tonight and the Mets offense went ballistic in the beginning of the game to secure at least a series tie in beating the Pirates 9-1 on Tuesday. Game Notes R.A. Dickey was great today, going for the complete game win, his only run allowed on an RBI groundout in the ninth inning. R.A. allowed five hits and struck out four and walked three in his complete game victory, and even threw [...]
Mets take the series opener against the Pirates with a 1-0 win in ten innings. Gee pitched another great start while the bullpen kept it together again. The offense fell silent again with the exception of Nick Evans’ walk-off RBI hit. Game Summary Dillon Gee continues to impress with another great start tonight. Manuel wants to limit him with innings but he still made it to over 100 pitches in the game. Gee was dominate [...]
According to Adam Rubin of ESPN New York, the Mets are expected to add right-hander Dillon Gee, left-hander Raul Valdes and first baseman/outfielder Nick Evans to the active roster on Monday in time for the series opener in Washington against the Nationals. Gee went 13-8 for the Bisons with a 4.96 ERA and currently leads the International League with 165 strikeouts. He was just named Buffalo’s Comeback Player of the Year. Evans batted .294 with 17 [...]
Remember Nick Evans? He was a healthy scratch from the lineup for AA-Binghamton leading Adam Rubin to believe he may soon be joining the Mets. On Wednesday, Mets manager Jerry Manuel indicated that he wanted a right handed batter on the bench in anticipation of the Braves series that starts today. Evans, 24, is having a solid bounce-back season and is hitting .290/.363/.518 with 24 doubles, 15 home runs and 46 RBI in 303 AB for Binghamton. Evans has progressed [...]
Earlier today, after starting Angels 1B Kendry Morales went down with an injury, it was mentioned that the Angels have no solid backup plan at 1B. Can the Mets be players? The Mets currently have Daniel Murphy rehabbing at AAA, and with Brandon Wood struggling as well at 3B for the Angels, could he be a fit? Murphy could platoon between 1B and 3B and possibly be a good trading chip with a team the Mets [...]
Opening Day lineup had Mike Jacobs playing first and hitting clean up. Mets final game against the Rockies had Fernando Tatis playing first and batting fifth. Combined Jacobs and Tatis are 7/36 (.194), 1 home run, 5 RBIs with 10 strikeouts. Not exactly what the Mets want from their “power and clutch hitting” first basemen. And we still have plenty of time left before Daniel Murphy is inevitably the first baseman for the Mets. However, [...]
First I would like to thank Sach for bringing this to my attention. Back in 2008 the Mets were desperate to shake up the lineup and get guys to play harder. They decided to bring up the young first baseman Nick Evans. He was dominating in AA and got the call to play left field for the Mets to replace the injured Marlon Anderson. In Evans’ first career at bat, he doubled off Colorado Rockies [...]
MMO has learned that first baseman Nick Evans will be one of several Mets that will be playing winter ball this off season. David Ponte met up with Evans this past weekend and asked him what his plans were for the off season. Q- What positives if any can you take from this season? A – I think it’s definitely a good learning experience for everybody to go through struggles like this. Hopefully we [...]
With two roster spots open after Wagner was dealt to the Red Sox earlier today and Santana having season ending surgery, Mets have recalled up LF Nick Evans and LHP Pat Misch. Nick Evans played for the Mets earlier this season after Fernando Martinez got injured. Nick Evans is batting .250 with 1 homerun and 6 RBIs. Pat Misch was recently sent down after activating Wagner, but will be called back up. Misch has a [...]
The Mets made a couple of moves today. First, they claimed veteran infielder Angel Berroa off waivers from the Yankees and assigned him to AAA Buffalo. Berroa, the 2003 AL Rookie of the Year, had been designated for assignment by the Yankees on June 24 after hitting just .136 with one double and one RBI in 21 games this season. Also, the Mets assigned Nick Evans to Buffalo this afternoon to create roster space for Jeff Francoeur. Speaking [...]
Sometimes desperate times make us think desperate thoughts. Last night as I watched Johan Santana serve up a change-up to Ryan Braun that, frankly, I could have hit, and then watch the ball and a bunch of Brewers bounce all over the field and across the plate four times, my disbelief turned into realism. I started to think, is Santana the ace he was in April and May or is this worst stretch of his [...]
