Carlos Beltran left Game 1 of the World Series with bruised ribs on Wednesday night after robbing David Ortiz of a grand slam in the second inning. Beltran went full throttle and slammed into the short right field wall to make the spectacular grab. Beltran stayed in the game, but could be seen holding his side and pressing his chest in the outfield before the inning ended. He never made it out for the third inning […]

If there is one thing the Mets have going for them it is the very exciting crop of young pitchers in their farm system. It seems that the strategy going forward is to stockpile as many promising young pitchers as they possibly can. The question is whether or not this is a smart move and there are a number of reasons why one would question whether this is a smart move. Nothing excites Mets fans […]
Updated Post 10/16 MetsBlog drew an interesting conclusion regarding Rafael Montero after speaking to several Mets insiders: The jury is still out on Montero’s place on a 25-man roster, which is probably why he is more expendable, but also less valuable. First, let me make clear that Rafael Montero has yet to be added to the 40-man roster which renders any discussion about his place on a 25-man roster rather moot. Secondly, the Mets already […]
DILLON GEE, RHP PRESEASON EXPECTATIONS Coming off surgery, the expectations were minimal because the Mets didn’t know what they were getting.

As a “feel’’ pitcher, this type of injury was especially serious because it prevented him from getting a grip on his breaking balls and change-up, which were essential to his success.

The teams would squeeze two games in the following day that saw the Mets […]

I certainly hope Harper’s assertion is right. Harper quoted an unnamed Met source as […]
