The New York Mets, Major League Baseball and MLB Advanced Media today announced that David Wright was named the club’s nominee for the 2013 Hank Aaron Award. Fans can vote exclusively online at Mets.com and MLB.com. Wright, who was named to his seventh All-Star team (fifth as starter), led the Mets with a .307 batting average. The third baseman hit 18 home runs with 58 runs batted in, despite missing six weeks with a right hamstring injury. Wright homered in […]
Andy Martino of the Daily News, spoke to a person with direct knowledge of the team’s thinking who said that the Mets are more likely to keep Marlon Byrd this summer, rather than trade him before the Trade Deadline on July 31. We can debate the pros and cons of that, but I want to discuss Byrd in a different context for now. When you think about a player that deserves to be MLB Comeback […]
Former Mets catcher Paul Lo Duca didn’t hesitate when asked if he’d be willing to pitch again to David Wright in the 2013 Home Run Derby. “Ok everyone is asking me,” Lo Duca said on Twitter. “If David wants me to throw the HR Derby I’m in. If not…no biggie. We did it last time for fun. Hope he wins.” The fiery catcher pitched to Wright during the 2006 Home Run Derby and helped him finish […]
Updated on 5/1 Bob Klapisch of The Record, mirrors my post from Monday that the Terry Collins watch has begun: The countdown on Terry Collins began on the first day of pitchers and catchers and nothing so far has made it any easier to believe he’ll be back with the Mets in 2014. Of course, Collins has handled his lame-duck status with grace and maturity — he’s an honest guy, good with people — but […]
The bad news about the Mets keeps getting worse. David Wright, who was supposed to rest his stiff neck last night, was used as a pinch-hitter and now he’s questionable for tonight’s game at Miami, While it is conjecture Wright might have done something to aggravate his condition, the question can’t help be asked. Seriously, is winning a game in April worth losing Wright for a period of time? That’s the perception today and considering the Mets’ […]
Boy, I’ll tell ya… Karma? It’s a bitch… The Philadelphia Phillies beat the Mets 5-1 this afternoon at Citi Field to complete the sweep and send the Mets reeling to their fourth loss in a row. Jon Niese was the hard luck loser despite a solid performance from the Mets’ southpaw. He gave the the team more than they could have hoped for, but was let down by defensive miscues, a terrible decision by Terry […]
The New York Mets were shutout by the Philadelphia Phillies 4-0 tonight at Citi Field. Phillies starter Kyle Kendrick hurled a complete game gem, limiting the revamped Mets lineup to just three hits and a walk. For the Mets, Dillon Gee was matching zeroes with Kendrick for five innings and actually did a nice job of keeping the Phillies off the board until the dreaded sixth inning when it all fell apart for him. Gee was […]
The following comes to us from the folks at the GrandstandGazette.com and penned by Christian Fazzini. At the start of the season, the Mets were desperate for starting pitching. R.A. Dickey was traded, which turned out good for the Mets since he is getting rocked in the American League. Johan Santana is out for the season with another injury. What else is new? So what would the Mets do now? Would the ace of their staff really […]
Team News and Notes Atlanta Braves (6-1) The Braves currently sit in first place in the NL East, and new addition Justin Upton is a major reason why. The 25-year-old has batted .423/.448/1.192 to start the season, with six bombs and eight RBI. The other half of the Upton brothers, B.J., has struggled to hit himself out of a barn batting just .120 to date. On the mound, the wily veteran Tim Hudson is back […]
