Struggling catcher Travis d’Arnaud delivered a two-out single with the bases loaded to give the Mets a 1-0 walk-off win in 12 innings on Sunday at Citi Field. Dillon Gee started and pitched 7.1 shutout innings, scattering six hits and two walks while striking out eight. The bullpen followed up Gee’s brilliant performance with a tremendous effort as Pedro Feliciano, Scott Atchison, LaTroy Hawkins, Gonzalez Germen, and Vic Black combined for 4.2 scoreless innings as Black would […]
When the New York Mets begin their annual winter task of building their bullpen, they’d be wise to consider three names instrumental in beating Miami last night at Citi Field. Yes, Lucas Duda gets props for a three-run homer, Jon Niese pitched into the seventh, and Andrew Brown took advantage of a rare start by hitting a mammoth home run, but the Mets might not have won without Vic Black, Pedro Feliciano and LaTroy Hawkins. […]
Jonathan Niese was terrific and the Mets found some much-needed power in tonight’s 4-3 victory over the Marlins. After Niese and Brad Hand traded perfect firsts, the scoring got underway quickly in the second. Giancarlo Stanton led off with an absolute shot to left, but Andrew Brown returned fire in the bottom of the frame with a jack of his own. The game was quiet again until the fifth, when Donovan Solano brought in Ed […]
Welcome to the second installment of Where Are They Now?, where we take a Mets roster and check in on what the players have done since last playing in Queens. Last week, we looked at the 2010 Mets, so this week we go back a year and look at the 2009 team, the first year the Mets played their home games at Citi Field. That season, Jerry Manuel led his squad to a 70-92 record, […]
I love baseball so much. The game has become such an integral part of me – it’s connected to my soul. When I’m on one of my retreats to the hospital, all I want to know is what the Mets did and how did Zack Wheeler look, or did I miss any transactions, but most of all, “did the Mets win?” I was so glad to be home to watch the game yesterday, mostly because […]
Well, some days you’re the fly and some days… you’re the windshield. The Braves came to hit today and Daisuke Matsuzaka gave us a typical performance in the Mets’ 13-5 loss to the Braves. Atlanta got to Dice-K before he could even record an out when Freddie Freeman doubled in Justin Upton and Jordan Schafer. Just like that it was 2-0 in favor of the Braves, and they wouldn’t really look back. Matsuzaka helped himself out […]
Perhaps this is the start of a trend — Wheeler Day will bring us the happiness that Harvey Day did for a little bit and we can all be happy with that. Wheeler took the mound tonight and pitched a solid game against the Nationals, holding them scoreless through five innings and striking out three batters overall. His only real damage came in the bottom of the sixth, when the Nationals took advantage of a […]
The Mets have traded John Buck and Marlon Byrd and cash considerations to the Pittsburgh Pirates for 19-year-old Single-A second baseman Dilson Herrera and a player to be named later, according to ESPN New York. Herrera is the 20th best prospect in the Pirates minor leagues according to Baseball America and 11th best according to MiLB.com who also ranked him just behind Wilmer Flores as the ninth best second baseman. Herrera is playing his first full season in Single-A, where […]
Despite the dose of bad news we received today, Zack Wheeler gave us a little hope as he shined in his outing today. Unfortunately, the result was not the desired one. The Mets struck first when Andrew Brown hit a second inning single right back up the middle and brought around Marlon Byrd to make the score 1-0. Wheeler was solid through three, but the Phillies got to him in the 4th when an Cody […]
