Walkoff Sac Fly Gives Cyclones Extra-Innings Win

It really should have been Johan Santana dangling left arm night based on his injury history with the Mets, but instead Wednesday night at MCU Park in Coney Island was Johan Santana bobblehead night. And the Brooklyn Cyclones did not disappoint, as the team scratched out a 2-1 victory over the Staten Island Yankees in […]

Cyclones Drop Wild Extra-Inning Contest

Extra-inning games seemed to be the theme of the organization Monday night. The big club won a crazy 13-inning affair over the Arizona Diamondbacks at Citi Field, but the Brooklyn Cyclones dropped a 12-inning contest to the Staten Island Yankees at MCU Park in Coney Island. The Cyclones’ 8-7 loss was a wild affair, especially […]

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 […]

A Molina Home Run Followed By Two Collapses: AKA The Good Ol’ Days

Matt Harvey’s Got Liquid Nitrogen Running Through His Veins

I hardly agree with anything Terry Collins says – except on the rare occasions when he quotes me. While talking to reporters about Matt Harvey, the Mets manager offered up this gem: “He’s been in every game he’s pitched.
