During his rookie season last year, Harvey was tired and decided to take a nap in a side room of the Mets’ clubhouse. […]

Featured Post: Breaking Down Zack Wheeler’s Debut

I noticed a few things during Zack Wheeler’s start I’d like to point out. A few things impressed me and there are some things that are noteworthy after doing some research: Of Wheeler’s seven strikeouts, six were swinging and it was only the opposing pitcher that took a called third strike. All seven third strikes […]

Atchison Leaves Game With Sore Right Groin

Before today’s game the New York Mets placed infielder Justin Turner on the 15-day disabled list due to an intercostal strain and subsequently activated reliever Scott Atchison. However, when Atchison came in to pitch the bottom of the 7th inning, he appeared to injure in his leg while tossing his warmup pitches. Atchison was immediately […]

MLB Young Guns: Zack Wheeler Scouting Report

The Mets plan to temporarily demote Zack Wheeler to the minors after tonight’s start, then officially re-promote him Tuesday for his next scheduled start at the Chicago White Sox, according to ESPN New York.

Dillon Gee Has Pitched Himself Back Into The Rotation, But So Has Hefner

“I know Dillon Gee, if we bring anybody up that’s going to be a starting pitcher, and we have to take somebody out of the rotation and maybe move them to the bullpen, he would be that guy, because I know he can pitch out of the bullpen.” That is what Terry Collins had to […]

Are Valdespin’s Days As A Met Numbered?

Please, join me as I throw a handful of dirt on the coffin of Jordany Valdespin’s career as a New York Met. The one I used to call El Dramático for his ability to spark rallies and hit long home runs is getting playing time for one reason: he’s being shopped. Don’t expect him to […]

The Day I’ll Never Forget, April 1st, 2013: My First Mets Game With My Dad

Some of my greatest memories with my father have revolved around sports. High-fiving eachother after witnessing an Islanders overtime win at the Nassau Coliseum.
