Pinch-hitting is one of the more difficult things to do in the sport. After sitting for up to two hours, you are given little time to get loose and thrust into position of trying to hit a 90-mph., fastball or nasty fall-off-the-table breaking stuff. Few do it well, but the Mets’ Jordany Valdespin has a knack for coming through with power. His three-run homer Wednesday was his sixth in two years with the Mets. He is indeed, a […]
It’s now been over seven years since that promising Opening Day in 2006, which was only day one of a season that took the Mets just a big swing away from the National League Championship trophy, and a visit to the World Series. With the exception of a few R.A. Dickey masterpieces, and a special no-hitter, there hasn’t been much cheering in Flushing since that magical run in 2006. The Metropolitans are a team that has always been […]
Updated by Joe D. at 10:00 PM Lynn Worthy just broke the news on Twitter, that Jake DeGrom will remain with the Binghamton Mets even when Cory Mazzoni comes off the disabled list next week. Worthy adds that the B-Mets will go with a six-man rotation which is something they did last season as well. Great news, and DeGrom is exactly where he should have been to start the season. Good stuff… Original Post by […]
The world awakens this morning seeking to right itself after a pair of explosions rocked Boston yesterday afternoon. Lost are three souls, with no fewer than another one hundred and thirty-two injured. Also lost in the day’s events, a nation’s sense of security when it comes to sporting events. Long thought to be a potential target, major sporting events are often subjected to increased security measures. To date, the United States had been successful (or […]
With all the attention being paid to John Buck’s torrid start, another Met’s offensive performance has gone under the radar. But his start is just as noteworthy as Buck’s. Daniel Murphy has always been a great contact hitter, lashing doubles at a rate never before seen by a left-handed hitter in Mets history. Nearly one-quarter of his 481 career hits have gone for two bases. But what he’s done over his first ten games this […]
One of the things I love about Twitter is how it can spontaneously erupt into a great debate and then lead into other things where you get even more insights and come away smarter than you were before you logged on. My post about MetsBlog’s poll results this morning, generated an enormous response from fans and mainstream media alike. However, that’s not what this post is about. During one of my Twitter exchanges I tossed […]

This is the T-Shirt Tuesday design for the April 23 game against the Los Angeles Dodgers, honoring Mets catcher John Buck. It bears a striking resemblance to Blitzen. In 31 plate appearances so far this season, Buck is batting .393/.387/.464 with four home runs and an NL leading 14 RBIs in eight games. Buck did not hit his fourth home run of the year last year until May 13 (25 games) and did not drive […]
Jack Leathersich has been very busy interacting with fans the past couple of days on Twitter. He’s been taking the time to answer questions from Mets fans during his long bus rides. Leathersich actually had two tweets that were worthy of being the Mets Minors Tweet of The Day. “@todjones: @leatherrocket most important thing for 12 year old lefty to be working on now?” Throwing strikes, keep the game fun & simple — Jack […]
