Sometimes I wonder why I even read some Mets related posts on Facebook or Twitter. If you were to gauge the Mets fan base on the way General Manager, Sandy Alderson has run the team, well you would think that this team was based out of Miami. Yes, I realize that the lunatic fringe faction of our fan base ( a small – yet loud minority) will never be satisfied with Alderson until this team […]
The Mets know it. We know it. Hell, he knows it too. When people projected the future rotation for 2014 or 2015, Dillon Gee was never the first name that came to mind. Even Jeremy Hefner heard his name tossed around more because of his experience working out of the pen. Matt Harvey, Zack Wheeler, Jon Niese, Rafael Montero, Noah Syndergaard, Jenrry Mejia…yeah, those are the names — and Gee finds himself excluded, through no […]
Good news… The Mets announced that Jenrry Mejia had successful surgery to remove the bone spur that was wreaking havoc on his right elbow. Everything went well, and Jenrry will have plenty of time to get ready for next Spring. I didn’t want to write an entire post on this so I thought I’d add a quick update to Sagar’s post based on it’s relevancy…. Original Post 11:00 AM With the Dark Knight down and […]
Tim Lavigne played with the Binghamton Mets for five seasons (’02–’05, ’08) and amassed 36 career saves with them — a franchise record. It took Jeff Walters all of one season to make a run at that record — and he finished the task last night after picking up save number 37 on the season. In the same game, the Binghamton Mets won their 83rd game, setting a new franchise record for wins in the process. Sticking […]
On the day the team and its loyal fanbase learned the devastating news that Matt Harvey will likely need Tommy John surgery to repair a partially torn UCL in his elbow, Zack Wheeler took the mound and delivered the goods. Despite the 2-1 loss to the Phillies, the young righthander gave us the reassuring start we all needed to help us move on. In 6.2 innings, the 23-year old allowed just two earned runs on five hits, […]
Is it me, or does it suddenly feel like the sky is falling? On the heels of the terrible news that Mets ace Matt Harvey has a partially torn UCL, top prospect Noah Syndergaard had the worst outing of his professional career. Taking the mound tonight against Bowie, Syndergaard had been brilliant over his last four starts– allowing just one earned run in total. Well things definitely took a turn for the worse, and quickly. […]
Thoughts from Joe D. I will be very shocked if the Toronto Blue Jays hang onto Alex Anthopoulos as the team’s general manager after this season. He took a team with a talent rich farm that was once ranked among baseball’s best and overturned it for aging and expensive players that have sunk the team to the bottom of the division instead of the top as he had hoped. A new GM will quickly look […]
It is becoming more and more evident that quality pitching is the hub of a pending baseball renaissance in New York’s Citi Field. Win or lose, a cadre of young pitching arms have kept the Mets competitive in Flushing for some two months now with Met pitching underlings tearing up the minor leagues at every level. The pitching uptick has many of the Met faithful thinking their turn in the sun may arrive sooner than anticipated. […]
In yesterday’s Farm Report on ESPN New York, Adam Rubin gave out plenty of quality information about the Mets minor league system (as he always does). What I took notice of was the first item in the “short hops” section of the article. Rubin noted that while Rafael Montero, Jacob deGrom, and Noah Syndergaard are all nearing organizational innings limits, the Mets are allowing them to pitch into the playoffs. The B-Mets officially clinched a […]
