The Mets (62-73) lost to the Nationals (69-67) by a score of 6-5 Sunday night at Nationals Park. Jon Niese took the hill against Ross Ohlendorf as the Mets sought to sweep Washington on the road. Jon was handed a 2-0 lead before throwing a pitch thanks to Daniel Murphy’s RBI double and an RBI single from Lucas Duda. Matt den Dekker padded the lead in the top of the 2nd with his first MLB […]
Updated by Joe D. Jeurys Familia made his first rehab appearance for Advanced-A St. Lucie this morning, marking the right-hander’s first game action since undergoing surgery on June 5 to clean out his right elbow. According to Adam Rubin, Familia tossed one scoreless inning of relief, allowing a single a walk and striking out one. With the St. Lucie Mets now completing their regular season, it will be interesting to see if the Mets opt to […]
Call me crazy, but… I’ve been thinking about the Mets upcoming offseason and wondering what the team will do to improve. They have two problems to address: 1. Not enough impact position players on the team, particularly in the power department. 2. Recapturing the interest of fans, or in other words, convincing fans that the team isn’t “all talk and no action.” Most of the free agent options discussed have drawbacks: Jacoby Ellsbury has an […]
According to Andy Martino, The Mets could use Gonzalez Germen in save situations on the road in order to get him used to high pressure situations. The goal is not to make him a future closer, Martino explains, but to better acclimate him to a seventh or eighth inning role by throwing him into the fire. That’s an interesting concept to say the least, and Germen has enough potential that he might pan out to be […]
If you are a Mets fan, you know that David Wright is still with team, or that Jose Reyes and Carlos Beltran are in Toronto and St. Louis, respectively. But what happened to guys like Nick Evans or Rod Barajas? We have the answers. 11 Players who made it into a game in 2010 with the Mets, are still employed by the team. That would be the aforementioned David Wright, Ike Davis, Ruben Tejada (Although […]
Matt Harvey was in no mood to talk to reporters yesterday, telling a group of them, “I’m good” after they approached him wanting to know more about his tweet heard ’round the world. The injured ace, who is hoping to avoid Tommy John surgery, was diagnosed with a partially torn ulnar collateral ligament, but tweeted Tuesday that he’ll be back on the mound next April. I can’t say that I blame him for shunning the press after SNY […]
One of our readers sent me a link to an article by Dave Cameron of FanGraphs who asked, How much would you pay for one year of Mike Trout? Yes, yes, yes, it’s a completely speculative piece and the question is hypothetical, but here him out… Recently, I was asked what I think turns out to be a pretty interesting thought experiment: if Mike Trout was released by the Angels and became a free agent, but decided […]
Thoughts from Joe D. I will be very shocked if the Toronto Blue Jays hang onto Alex Anthopoulos as the team’s general manager after this season. He took a team with a talent rich farm that was once ranked among baseball’s best and overturned it for aging and expensive players that have sunk the team to the bottom of the division instead of the top as he had hoped. A new GM will quickly look […]
What a week we just wrapped up and as is usually the case, there’s plenty of storylines and news we can talk about before the Mets take the field at 10:10 PM against the Los Angeles Dodgers. Who’s At Short? For the time being Terry Collins is fully intent on going with Omar Quintanilla as his everyday shortstop. “I’ve yet to see why Omar Quintanilla should lose his job. All he does is make plays […]
