It’s taken me a long time to warm up to John Buck after that whole punch-pie incident with Jordany Valdespin. Until that point he was exceeding my expectations for someone who was forced on us as a condition of the R.A. Dickey deal. But sometimes you just gotta move on, and after hearing his take on his new reduced role with Travis d’Aranud, I’m willing to let bygones be bygones. Put it there, pal… The […]
Well it looks like Sandy Alderson didn’t agree with my pleas to give Jake deGrom the start on Friday… He unambiguously shot down the idea last night, and said that “DeGrom is not on the table.” Instead, the Mets have decided to take Carlos Torres out of the bullpen where he has done a stellar job, and put him back into the rotation. Torres has a 1.49 ERA in 19 relief appearances this season, and in three […]
At 1:47 PM I left my house to begin the journey to NYSEG Stadium in Binghamton, NY, home of the Binghamton Mets. I arrived nearly two hours later with over two hours to spare until the gates opened. I used this time to tour the campus of SUNY Binghamton University, my mother’s alma mater, and to sit down for a late lunch/early dinner meal at the Lost Dog Cafe. If you’re in the area, check […]

Updated Post Ike Davis went 1-for-3 with a long home run of Ian Kennedy last night as the Mets beat the Padres 5-2 at Petco Park. Davis also drew two more walks, prompting a sigh from Keith Hernandez in the first inning, “Uh… nice walk.” In Davis’ defense, he took four straight pitches out of the strike zone and it was obvious Kennedy wasn’t giving him anything to hit despite walking Marlon Byrd before him. Ironically, […]
Brooklyn Cyclones’ righty reliever Johnny Magliozzi had no thrown more than a single inning at any time this summer. But with the game on the line in the top of the eighth, Cyclones’ manager Rich Donnelly called on the reliever to get the final six outs. Magliozzi came through in dominant fashion as Brooklyn held on for a 6-4 win Friday evening at MCU Park over the Vermont Lake Monsters, the Single-A short season affiliate […]
The legend of Zack Wheeler continues to grow as last night he joined some pretty impressive company… GREAT COMPANY: Zack Wheeler joins Pedro Martinez & Nolan Ryan as the only Mets pitchers ever to strikeout 12 batters in six innings or less. — Mets Merized Online (@MetsMerized) August 16, 2013 Wheeler set career highs Thursday with 12 strikeouts and 115 pitches, taking a no-decision after allowing one run in six innings. The Mets went on to […]
Update 3:20 PM According to ESPN, the Phillies made the decision not to renew Manuel’s contract, so the decision to part ways now was made to see what Sandberg can do. Manuel, to his credit, pulled no punches. He made it clear he did not resign, saying “”I’m mad because they took the best seat in the house from me.” Manuel has been offered a spot in the organization, but is considering all options. “What […]
