Things are starting to look bright. Despite David Wright landing on the DL and speculations about him not coming back for the season, the Mets seem to be doing just fine without him. Completing a sweep of the Rockies (who had won 8 straight against the Mets at Citi Field prior) and taking 2/3 from the fading Diamondbacks was a pleasure to watch. Dominant pitching matched with timely hitting, aggressive baserunning and great defensive plays […]
Say the name Gregg Jefferies to any long-time Mets fan and you’ll get various reactions. Some people loved his spunk and appreciated his contributions to the team as it pushed toward the 1988 NL East title. Other cringe upon hearing his name because of the negative effects he had on the clubhouse and the team’s chemistry. Gregg Jefferies had a remarkable final five weeks of the 1988 season. When he played his first game after […]
Well, well, well… Wheeler had his way with the D-Backs in this one and improved to 4-0 on the road as the Mets went on to slither past Arizona, 4-1. Wheeler didn’t do all the work, however, as he got some offensive support from our resident youth movement: Wilmer Flores and Juan Lagares. Wilmer Flores chased Ike Davis home with an RBI single in the fourth after Juan Lagares led off the inning with […]
I just read this mailbag piece on MetsBlog who if asked Sandy Alderson would consider bringing Carlos Beltran back to Flushing on a one or two year deal and finish his career as a Met? I would imagine that if it were at all possible, more than two-thirds of Met fans would love to have Beltran back and patrolling right field. In Matt Cerrone’s response to the question he says, “my understanding is that he wouldn’t […]
Terry Collins told reporters that David Wright is remaining in New York to receive treatment on his injured right hamstring. He added that the reason for not being at the team’s complex in Port St. Lucie is because he can’t do any activity anyway so the team felt it was fine to let Wright stay in New York. As far as whether Wright will return at all in 2013, Collins said, “there’s nothing etched in […]
Mets have recalled Lucas Duda from his rehab and then optioned him to Triple-A Las Vegas. Terry Collins spoke to reporters before the game and it was clear the decision was based more on his defensive deficiencies more than anything else. “You know, with what we’ve got in the outfield and with what Ike (Davis) has done so far, I don’t know where we’re going to put him,” Collins said. The manager then added that […]
Every official baseball game features a top of the third inning. The Brooklyn Cyclones (23-24) likely wish that were not the case after a 4-1 loss to the Connecticut Tigers – the Single-A affiliate of the Detroit Tigers – Tuesday night. The Tigers scored all four of their runs – three of which were unearned – in the top of the third. Lefty starter Dario Alvarez hit the leadoff man and walked the second batter, […]
Both suspended Mets players issued statements a short while ago: Cesar Puello: Today, I was notified by the Commissioner of Major League Baseball that I have been suspended for 50 games for violation of the Joint Drug Agreement. Out of respect for the Mets’ organization, my teammates, and my family, I have decided to accept this suspension and not exercise my rights under the Basic Agreement to appeal. I made certain mistakes during the 2012 […]
The Brooklyn Cyclones will have plenty of representation at the 2013 New York-Penn League All-Star Game to be played Aug. 13 in Norwich, Conn. Starting pitchers John Gant, Miller Diaz and Robert Gsellman, closer John Mincone and second baseman L.J. Mazzilli will all represent the National League Affiliates in the game. Diaz will be the starter for the NL. With just over a week to go to the game, here are the statistics for the […]
