A long long time ago, in a stadium directly across from Citi Field was a place where fans were born and memories were created. That was before the dark times – BEFORE THE MADOFF… It is funny when you watch one of your all time favorite movies that you can attribute certain quotes to specific areas of your favorite baseball team. Take for example this little nugget of jubilation: You see what I told you […]
I have been a Mets fan since my birth 41 years ago, and in that time I have seen more than a handful of highs – and more than my share of lows. I have lived through Frank Taveras and Alex Trevino, Bob Bailor and Bruce Bosclair, Rich Rodriguez and Tony Tarasco, and now Lucas Duda and Ruben Tejada. This is why whenever somebody looks at me cross-eyed when they find out that I am […]
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 […]
About a week and a half ago, I pleaded my case for calling up starting pitcher Pat Misch, inserting him into the rotation, and sliding Hisanori Takahashi back into the bullpen. Since then, Misch has made two starts and allowed just one run in 15 innings pitched, striking out 15 more batters and walking none. His record now stands at an impressive 10-4 with a 3.24 ERA and a 1.14 WHIP. This morning, I couldn’t help but […]
In a game where David Wright hit two home runs and the Mets offense put up some run support, Raul Valdes was pitching volleyballs and the Diamondbacks tee’d off, winning the opening game of the series 9-6. Game Notes Mike Pelfrey was hit early on in the game, and hit hard. Mike’s final line of five runs allowed, four earned on eight hits with two walks and four strikeouts in five and two-third innings doesn’t […]
Mets fall short of a comeback as they lose their third straight game to the Giants, 8-4. Hisanori Takahashi had a poor start for the Mets, while Ike Davis hit two long home runs, however, the Mets came up short in a ninth inning rally. With the loss, the Mets fall behind the Phillies in the NL East race to third place. Game Summary Hisanori Takahashi probably needs to be back in the bullpen where he has […]
Anthony McCarron of the Daily News is reporting that the Mets recalled left handed reliever Raul Valdes from Triple-A Buffalo and that he will be available for tonight’s game. Valdes was 0-1 with a 3.68 ERA in 29.1 innings pitched this season. To make room for Valdes, Fernando Tatis was placed on the 15-day DL with a sprained right shoulder. The Mets said Tatis will undergo further testing at the Hospital for Special Surgery tomorrow. Jerry […]
In a stellar outing from R.A. Dickey, the Mets offense, especially Jose Reyes came alive and defeated the Phillies 8-0. Game Notes R.A. Dickey went out for his second appearance as a Met, and was dominant through 6 innings, giving up no runs on 7 hits with 3 walks to go with 7 strikeouts. The hits were scattered, mostly in the 2nd where Dickey loaded the bases and then got out of it, and in […]
According to Adam Rubin of ESPN NY, the Mets will try to freshen up a tired and weary bullpen by calling up pitcher Tobi Stoner, who is expected to be promoted from Triple-A Buffalo in time for tonight’s game against the Cardinals which will be broadcast nationally on ESPN. Stoner (0-1, 4.32 ERA) had last pitched Tuesday for the Bisons, so he would be fully rested in case John Maine needs an early bailout. The 25-year-old right-hander had allowed four […]
