With the Tragic Number at 2, the “Playoff Push” is in serious jeopardy… The Mets (64-79) lost to the Nationals (75-69) Tuesday night by a score of 6-3. Dillon Gee got the start for New York and quickly put himself in a hole, giving up a run in each of the first three innings, including a pair of home runs. The Mets started slowly against Washington’s Jordan Zimmermann, but got a run in the 4th on […]
Mets righthander Matt Harvey will have his sore right elbow examined by Dr. James Andrews this week for a second opinion to help him determine if he should opt for Tommy John surgery as the Mets team doctors initially advised. Manager Terry Collins said before Sunday’s game confirmed the news, but added that no date has been set yet. Harvey was placed on the 15-day disabled list on Aug. 27 with a partial tear of […]
There are losses that can be blamed on a single player, and some even on human error — but others are just disappointing team losses where you get outplayed in every facet of the word. These happen every now and then and they’re unpleasant to watch. Tonight, sadly, was one of those games. Zack Wheeler had a streak of consecutive quality starts broken tonight while former Mets prospect Scott Kazmir mowed down the Mets lineup […]
As was reported earlier this week, tonight’s Mets starter Zack Wheeler, has only 25-28 innings left before he will be shutdown for the season. The Mets want to keep Wheeler’s innings total to around 175-180 for the season. With the 23-year-old righty already at 151.2 between Triple-A and the majors, the Mets may likely limit him to five innings tonight or a maximum of six no matter how well he is pitching. The Mets signed […]
In 2004, general manager Jim Duquette thought the Mets were a playoff contender, as the team was just three games out of first place on July 22. But one week later, the Mets were seven games off the pace and falling fast. Not wanting to give up on the season, Duquette traded away the team’s top pitching prospect, Scott Kazmir, to the Tampa Bay Devil Rays for pitcher Victor Zambrano. The Mets finished the year […]
He’s a baseball alchemist with a potent mix of pitches proven to flummox even the most accomplished batters in Double-A’s Eastern League. With 12 wins, Binghamton starting pitcher Logan Verrett shares the top of the league in this category with two other pitchers. Yet, watching Verrett capably mix four different pitchers over five innings of work on Sunday, I couldn’t help but wonder if Verrett profile as a future relief pitcher for the Mets given the depth […]
There was something Sandy Alderson said during his interview on WFAN on Tuesday that made me laugh. When Mike Francesa brought up how well Dillon Gee had been pitching, the Mets GM responded: “I told Dillon after his last game, remember what I told you two months ago: The other guys are getting the headlines, and you’re getting the wins.” In his team-leading and career-high 28th start, Gee delivered another stellar performance and held the […]
With pitchers Matt Harvey, Zack Wheeler, and Noah Syndergaard rising through the minor leagues and dominating along the way, the hype surrounding those at the top has blocked out some of the performances of lesser-known prospects, even with a fanbase as critical and attentive as the Mets’. Last week, Vinny took a look at some of the most underrated hitters in the Met system. Let’s take a look at some of the most underrated pitchers […]
Sandy Alderson was a guest of Mike Francesa on WFAN today and said a few things that are worth discussing… Aside from the usual dialog about how everything is going according to plan and things are going as well as expected, there were a few things worth noting and I’ll post on each one. First thing’s first, Matt Harvey… While he said the injury to his ace has had an impact, “It’s not as significant […]
