In 2004, general manager Jim Duquette thought the Mets were a playoff contender, as the team was just three games out of first place on July 22. But one week later, the Mets were seven games off the pace and falling fast. Not wanting to give up on the season, Duquette traded away the team’s top pitching prospect, Scott Kazmir, to the Tampa Bay Devil Rays for pitcher Victor Zambrano. The Mets finished the year […]
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 […]
It was déjà vu all over again to start Game 2 of the Mets’ three-game series against the Giants. The Giants took an early 2-0 off Dillon Gee. This time the Giants scored on an Anthony Recker error trying to catch Brandon Belt stealing that scored Hunter Pence and a poor fielder’s choice by Daniel Murphy that allowed Belt to score. The Mets battled back in the fourth and hung three on Barry Zito on […]
The Night’s Still Young! In what looked on paper to be a pitcher’s duel between Matt Harvey and Tim Lincecum, turned out to be an extra-inning duel between both bullpens. Buster Posey struck first with a two-run home run in the first inning to give the Giants an early 2-0 lead. It took Harvey 50 pitches to get through the first two innings. Lincecum took a no hitter into the fifth, but Marlon Byrd broke […]

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 […]
David Wright spoke out about the overzealous campaign by the Mets to get him voted to the All Star Game. “It’s nice when the organization is trying so hard to do something for one of their players and I can’t thank them enough for that,” Wright said. “But at the same time, I’ve asked them to kind of back it down a little bit, especially with the stuff between innings. You appreciate what they’re trying […]
