In the midst of all the Keystone Cops slapstick last night, Zack Wheeler made his fourth start of the season and delivered a somewhat uneven performance. It wasn’t bad, it wasn’t great, it was a step in the right direction. “I’m happy about my outing, even though there were some low points,” Wheeler explained. “Falling behind, throwing 20 pitches per inning, then only going five. But I battled out there as best as I could […]

Mets Official Release: The Mets will recall first baseman Ike Davis from Las Vegas (AAA) of the Pacific Coast League prior to tonight’s game. Davis will wear #29 and will be in Milwaukee tonight. A corresponding roster move will also be made tonight. Davis was optioned to Las Vegas on June 10. He hit .293 (22-75) with 21 runs scored, seven doubles, seven home runs, 13 RBI, 17 walks and 18 strikeouts in 21 games with the 51s. Davis has batted .161 […]
I don’t know what to make of Terry Collins these days… His bias toward his veteran players is so blatant now that he makes no attempt whatsoever to hide it. This is the third time in two weeks that the Mets manager felt the need to forego any praise of a big hit by catcher Anthony Recker and instead issue his soliloquy on John Buck who was ejected for arguing balls and strikes. “We are […]
The Star-Ledger reported that Zack Wheeler has been working on some mechanical adjustments and that the Mets are trying to address a couple of issues. Wheeler reportedly had a bad bullpen session on Wednesday prompting him to react angrily afterward. “Any pitcher who doesn’t throw a good side isn’t happy about it,” Wheeler said. ”It feels like a waste.” Terry Collins was impressed by Wheeler’s emotional outburst and said he likes that type of bulldog mentality. Wheeler allowed […]
I think that the Mets, including Terry Collins have figured out what to do with this lineup. The Mets seem to be clicking a bit lately and I believe it has to do with the lineup being somewhat steady. Collins is still trying to figure out what works for him, but the addition of Eric Young has solidified the top of the order and his versatility of playing second base has been a key addition […]
Over the years there have been plenty of great 1-2 combinations: Ruth and Gehrig, Spahn and Sain, Jackie and Pee Wee, Mays and McCovey, Seaver and Kooz, Newman and Redford, Fielder and Cabrera, Bonds and…Huh? Newman and Redford??? In 1969, veteran Hollywood actor Paul Newman and relative newcomer Robert Redford teamed up to star in one of the greatest and most fun westerns of all time, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. A good portion of […]
According to a post by Adam Rubin on ESPN New York, it now appears that Josh Satin’s hot bat will be keeping Ike Davis in Triple-A Las Vegas longer than what some may have initially thought. Satin, whose RBI single in the bottom of the ninth forced extra innings last night, went 3-for-6 with two doubles and a walk in the Mets comeback win. He has now reached base safely in 12 straight games and is batting […]
When the day arrives, and it’s clear Zack Wheeler has “figured it out,” this will be the day he will appreciate most. New York Mets fans will prefer to reflect on Wheeler’s first MLB start, six shutout innings vs. Atlanta, but Sunday will be one of those starts that will educate the Mets rookie most as he moves forward. The Mets and Wheeler were roughed up by the Washington Nationals 13-2 Sunday at Citi Field. […]
