After last night’s game, Jared Diamond of the Wall Street Journal tweeted that he thought Jeremy Hefner was probably the second best pitcher in the Mets rotation. Ummm… I agree… I wanted to update this post with something Hefner said after last night’s sterling performance. Asked about the many wins he was denied because of a lack of run support or the handful of blown leads by the bullpen, Hefner took the high road: “That […]

The Mets announced that they have acquired outfielder Eric Young Jr. from Colorado for RHP Collin McHugh. On Wednesday, the Rockies designated Young for assignment giving them 10 days to trade him.

Young was hitting .246 on the season with one home run and eight stolen bases, but his defense was the subject […]
Here is a complete wrap-up of Day One of the 2013 First Year Player Draft which includes the first two rounds and the competitive balance rounds. FIRST ROUND 1. Astros select: Mark Appel, RHP, Stanford University Well then… The dominant young Mark Appel ends up going first. Was Johnathan Gray’s positive test for Adderall a factor in him slipping from #1?

Live Blog From Citi Field Pressbox Top First: It starts to rain right after the anthem and moment of silence for Boston and Texas. The weather isn’t Minnesota-Denver bad, but I thought there would be more people here for Harvey-Strasburg. Harvey strikes out his first hitter and gets out of the inning with a runner on second. Bottom First: Jordany Valdespin leading off again. Glad to see Terry Collins running with this. Valdespin reaches on […]
