The Mets clinched their fifth consecutive losing season after they were beaten by the Marlins 3-0 this afternoon at Citi Field. It was the third shutout loss for the Mets in this homestand. Five straight losing seasons is the fourth-longest streak in franchise history. The only streaks longer: seven from 1962-68 and 1977-83, and six from 1991-96. Carlos Torres limited the Marlins to two runs on three hits and two walks while striking out a career-high eight […]

Before tonight’s game against the Washington Nationals, the Mets announced that closer Bobby Parnell had surgery to repair the herniated disk in his neck. The procedure was performed by renowned spinal surgeon Dr. Robert Watkins in California. Dr. Robert Watkins has treated more professional athletes with spinal injuries than any other surgeon in the world. Sandy Alderson said he expects Parnell to be ready for the 2014 season. Original Post 12:00 PM As was reported […]
Last week in Mets baseball: not very good. The week began and ended with Dice-K on the mound; one start being horrendous and one being pleasantly surprising. The team went a dismal 2-4 this week, scoring a combined total of 18 runs. The offense was, once again, asleep; making the absence of David Wright sting more and more as the days go on. Along with the inability to capitalize with RISP, the pitching wasn’t stellar […]
John B. asks… Do you really believe the Mets will spend this offseason or that they will contend in 2014? Joe D. replies… In a word, yes. I do believe they will spend as they do have many areas they need to address, and they are fresh out of All Star caliber players to trade as well as top performing players like a Marlon Byrd. They will add many players through free agency. However, I […]
Daisuke Matsuzaka had his first quality start as a New York Met in Cleveland on Sunday. Met fans were likely happy to get a win and pleased for Matsuzaka even though the former Red Sox star was brought to New York simply to be a starting rotation place holder for the remainder of the 2013 season. That fact makes you wonder. With the Double-A and Triple-A seasons now at an end, would it make sense to elevate a young […]
Savannah 5, Augusta 0 Behind a brilliant pitching performance, the Savannah Sand Gnats blanked the Augusta GreenJackets 5-0 Friday night at Historic Grayson Stadium to sweep the best-of-three Southern Division Championship Series two games to none. Savannah outscored Augusta 15-2 in the two games. Savannah pitchers recorded 19 strikeouts against just one walk in the two-game sweep. Starter Steven Matz faced one over the minimum in his seven innings in which he retired 21 of the 22 batters he […]
In the third inning of last night’s loss to the Indians, third baseman Wilmer Flores grimaced in pain as he swung and threw his bat at the ball, prompting Keith Hernandez to say, “Ouch. That kid is really hurting. You can tell that ankle is still bothering him.” Flores has been slumping badly both at the plate and in the field since injuring his ankle last month. Yesterday, in my game notes I wrote: Well […]
As was reported earlier this week, tonight’s Mets starter Zack Wheeler, has only 25-28 innings left before he will be shutdown for the season. The Mets want to keep Wheeler’s innings total to around 175-180 for the season. With the 23-year-old righty already at 151.2 between Triple-A and the majors, the Mets may likely limit him to five innings tonight or a maximum of six no matter how well he is pitching. The Mets signed […]
