About the only good thing about tonight’s Mets game against the Braves were the spiffy bright orange jerseys. Atlanta beat the Mets by the score of 8-2 in front of a sparse crowd at Citi Field. Jeremy Hefner was manhandled as the Braves teed off on him for three home runs and chased him from the game after 4.1 innings. All told Hefner was charged with six runs, five earned, on six hits and a […]

There will be days like Sunday, where the meltdown is complete in all phases, beginning with Jon Niese, who had an inability to get hitters out, an offense that offered little resistance to Tim Hudson, and a porous defense. It’s not alarming the Mets couldn’t do anything against Hudson, but what should be a source of concern is Niese, who was hit hard in his fourth straight start – all lost by the Mets – […]

However, just when the offseason was winding down and it appeared the Braves were done, they surprised everyone and acquired B.J.’s brother Justin from the Diamondbacks.
