According to Venezuelan journalist Rafael Tejera, the Mets have expressed interest in journeyman relief pitchers Víctor Garate and Armando Galarraga. To fully appreciate how earth-shattering this news is, you must first know that Garate last pitched in the major leagues in 2009, and had a 22.50 ERA. Galarraga last pitched in the majors in 2012, and posted a 6.25 ERA. Fellow Mets fans, the apocalypse is officially upon us. I wish the adjective bold or […]
I came across this on MLBTR this morning: The Mets are looking for players to buy into their offensive philosophy, and that means finding guys with discipline at the plate, writes Andy Martino of the New York Daily News. That might help to explain why the free-swinging Daniel Murphy has found himself on the pages of MLBTR over the last week or so. I headed over to Martino’s post after reading that, and immediately knew I was in store for […]
If there is one thing the Mets have going for them it is the very exciting crop of young pitchers in their farm system. It seems that the strategy going forward is to stockpile as many promising young pitchers as they possibly can. The question is whether or not this is a smart move and there are a number of reasons why one would question whether this is a smart move. Nothing excites Mets fans […]
Warning !! What you are about to see is an exercise in futility. What if Johan Santana didn’t blow out his surgically repaired shoulder again during Spring Training ? What if Shaun Marcum pitched anywhere near the numbers on the back of his baseball card ? What if Matt Harvey didn’t injure his elbow – possibly requiring Tommy John Surgery ? What if David Wright didn’t tweak his hamstring and missed seven weeks of the […]
Last nights game between the Mets and the Cleveland Indians was stomach churning bad. That first inning pitched by Jon Niese made me wish that Shaun Marcum was still with the team (well not really). All I know is that after viewing last night’s game, I have finally come to terms with the fact that this Mets team, the way it is currently structured, has pretty much no shot to finish the season remotely close […]
In case you were wondering, left-hander Pedro Feliciano continues to make strides since his promotion to Triple-A Las Vegas last week. The veteran reliever is maintaining his higher velocity and getting the job done out of the bullpen for the 51s. Feliciano has retired all six batters he has faced — four lefties, two righties — over three appearances since the promotion from Binghamton to Las Vegas, reports Adam Rubin. Overall, Feliciano has made 22 appearances […]
There’s an old adage in baseball: you can never have enough good pitching. There’s another adage in life: you can lead a horse to water, but you can’t make it drink. Beat both in a large bowl with an electric mixer until smooth and fluffy and you’ve got something resembling the 2013 New York Mets. In case none of that makes any sense, consider someone like Carlos Torres. In his last two starts, he’s gone […]
Atlanta Braves vs New York Mets Kris Medlen (6-9, 3.64) vs. Carlos Torres (0-1, 0.79) Starting Lineup Eric Young, Jr. – LF Daniel Murphy – 2B David Wright – 3B Marlon Byrd – RF Ike Davis – 1B John Buck – C Juan Lagares – CF Omar Quintanilla – SS Carlos Torres – RHP Game Notes RHP Dillon Gee flirted with history on Monday night, when he carried a no-hitter into the seventh inning against […]
With the New York Mets (41-50) about to embark on the second half of the the 2013 season, I hit up two dozen of our MMO writers for their overall grades by position for our Mid-Season Report Cards. For added measure we also included Terry Collins, Sandy Alderson and Mr. Met who was the only one to score an A+. So without further ado, here’s our 2013 Mid-Season Mets Report Cards. Terry Collins C- TC […]
