David Lennon of Newsday, tweets that the following players have been non-tendered by the Mets: OF Cory Sullivan OF Jeremy Reed RP Lance Broadway SP Tim Redding Nothing that wasn’t already expected there, but it’s worth noting that only Sean Green remains of the trade that sent “six players” to the Mariners and Indians in the J.J. Putz deal. Other Notable Non Tenders The Oakland A’s have non tendered outfielder Jack Cust. Cust has led the [...]
For the second straight outing, Tim Redding gave up only one earned run. Fortunately, he didn’t have to face Pedro Martinez this time around. Redding’s mastery of the Nationals and some timely hitting by David Wright and Jeff Francoeur in the seventh inning helped the Mets snap their season-long six-game losing streak. Today’s final score was 3-2. Redding shut down the Nats so completely that the only hit they were able to muster off him [...]
In 2007, the Phillies took the division from the Mets on the last day of the season after the Mets held a 7-game lead with 17 games to play. Pedro Martinez faced the Phillies once in those last 17 games and the Mets lost that game. In 2008, the Mets held a 3½ game lead over the Phillies with 17 games to play. Pedro Martinez faced the Phillies once in September and the Mets lost [...]
This season the Mets have seen many new additions to their big league roster in order to compensate for their injured stars. Some of these roles have been occupied by career minor leaguers, while others have been filled by seasoned veterans, who have shuttled between teams throughout their career. In particular the starting pitching staff has been decimated by injuries. Three of the team’s top pitchers (Santana, Maine and Perez) are all currently on the [...]
Tim Redding’s late season renaissance continued, as he enjoyed his third consecutive solid outing. However, his enjoyment of the game was short-lived, as party pooper Brian Stokes gave up three runs in the bottom of the eighth inning for the second time in five games, including a bases loaded two-run pinch-hit single to former Yankee Jason Giambi. The latest Rockie Rally gave Colorado a 5-2 victory over the Mets Wednesday night in Denver. Before the [...]
The Mets put on an Amazin’ exhibition of power and offense for the two fans who showed up this afternoon at Land Shark Stadium to see the Mets beat the Marlins 10-3. Tim Redding started and allowed three homeruns, and yet somehow these Miracle Mets were able to pull off the upset victory and avoid a sweep in Miami. Redding was fortunate that all three bombs were of the solo variety. He ended up pitching [...]
On a star-studded evening when the Mets celebrated the 40th anniversary of the 1969 Miracle Mets bringing home the franchise’s first World Championship, the 2009 Mets could not provide an amazin’ finish of their own as the bullpen spoiled a surprisingly good performance by Tim Redding. The Phillies were able to overcome being stymied by Redding through the first five innings and punished the Mets’ bullpen for four runs, eventually defeating the 2009 Miracle Whip [...]
Yesterday on his twitter Sports Illustrated’s Jon Heyman posted the following: “minaya, manuel have been told by mets boss jeff wilpon they wont be fired over this painful season.” This organization continues to amaze me. The past 2 seasons have ended with the Mets missing the post season by 1 game, losing that important 1 game the last day of the season. The Wilpons decide before the Madoff scandal broke that they want a lower [...]
It was a tough game to watch tonight at Citi Field, as the Mets were shutout by the Yankees 5-0. Alex Cora’s single in the sixth inning was the only hit the Mets had tonight, as the Yankees came so close to pitching the first no-hitter at Citi Field… For the second day in a row! What I found most puzzling is that after getting shutout by Burnett at Yankee Stadium on June 16th, I expected the Mets [...]
