Before today’s game the New York Mets placed infielder Justin Turner on the 15-day disabled list due to an intercostal strain and subsequently activated reliever Scott Atchison. However, when Atchison came in to pitch the bottom of the 7th inning, he appeared to injure in his leg while tossing his warmup pitches. Atchison was immediately pulled from the game and replaced by Brandon Lyon. The Mets are calling it a sore right groin. The ailing […]
I was gratified to read Sandy Alderson’s recent comments regarding a strategic shift in the Mets’ front office. Specifically, his statement to the effect that he feels that it would be worthwhile for the team to begin to add established major league talent to supplement the roster indicates to me that major decisions have been made with respect to the limitations of the organization in its present state. When trying to assess the strategy of […]
The Mets released a statement on their official website with an update: Scott Atchison was seen today in Florida by Dr. James Andrews for continued discomfort in his right elbow. Dr. Andrews concurred with Mets physicians on the diagnosis of, and a treatment plan for, a bone spur in the elbow. Scott will recommence his throwing program on his return to Port St. Lucie. There is no immediate timetable for his return to the Mets […]
Last Night’s Quick Scores Las Vegas topped Salt Lake, 13-9. Binghamton shut out Portland, 5-0. Savannah dropped to Augusta, 3-1. St. Lucie shut out Bradenton, 8-2. Prospect Pipeline Rafael Montero killed it last night…again. The righty was absolutely dominant through six innings today – allowing just four hits and two walks while striking out eight batters. He allowed no earned runs and dropped his ERA in AA down to 3.08. He was touching 95 mph on […]
Last Night’s Quick Scores Las Vegas lost to Salt Lake, 7-5. Binghamton slipped by Portland, 3-2. Savannah defeated Augusta, 2-1. St. Lucie shut out Bradenton, 1-0. Prospect Pipeline Logan Verrett was pretty damn good in yesterday’s game, scattering three hits over seven innings while striking out nine. He allowed just one earned run and walked none. In fact, as Mitch pointed out, “over Verrett’s past two starts, he has pitched 13 innings, striking out nineteen […]
Updated by HoJo at 6:00 PM Scott Atchison, who experienced numbness in his fingers while pitching Monday, has been placed on the disabled list according to Assistant GM John Ricco. Atchison was examined Tuesday in New York by team doctors who said there is “no new structural damage.” The 37 year old veteran reliever opted not to have Tommy John surgery last year despite a ligament tear in his right elbow. Collin McHugh has been promoted from […]
Just call him Mr. Clutch or as our own Daniel Nelson likes to refer to him, “El Dramatico”. Yes, of course we’re talking about the incredible Jordany Valdespin who came off the bench once again and delivered another dramatic pinch-hit home run to help the Mets beat the Marlins 7-6 and salvage the final game of the series. Valdespin continues to display an uncanny ability for rising to the occasion whenever the Mets need a […]
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 […]
Jon Niese gets credit for a quality start according to those stats… As for the others? Well this, my friends, is where our story begins… Behold the Mets’ poison pen and embrace the horror… Josh Edgin has a 9.75 ERA and his fastball is slowing down in velocity by the day. The situation with him is nearing a panic level. Scott Atchison couldn’t get an out and allowed three earned runs to cross the plate. […]
