Brandon Nimmo, the 2011 first round pick for the Mets in the MLB draft, was up against four other minor leaguers in a final vote to see who would occupy the final roster spot on the USA Futures Game roster. Mets fans have successfully voted Nimmo into the Futures Game, which is set to take place on July 14th at Citi Field. The Savannah Sand Gnats outfielder joins pitchers Noah Syndergaard and Rafael Montero as the other two representatives from the Mets organization.
In 52 games (202 at-bats) in the Savannah League, Nimmo is hitting .277/.378/.371 with one home run, 22 RBIs, six doubles, and five triples. He had a great month of April to start the season (.322/.421/.433), but has since cooled off because of injuries and a recent slump. In yesterday’s victory at Rome, Nimmo went 3-for-5 with a run scored, the first time he’s recorded more than one hit in a game in the last week and a half. Hopefully, he’s getting hot at the right time.
Congratulations to Brandon on getting voted into...

Matt Harvey isn’t the only New York Mets pitcher not receiving any support from his hitters. The true measure of how well Jeremy Hefner has pitched this year isn’t found in his 2-6 record, but 3.72 ERA. Hefner has arguably been the Mets’ second most effective starter behind Harvey, which should mute any trade discussions.

TweetThis could only happen to the Mets. Fan’s were buzzing in anticipation as yesterday’s Mets game featured Zach Wheeler’s first home start.

Patience was never really a word you would hear when it comes to New York fan bases. Now, possibly more than ever, Mets fans with the exception of a vocal minority are practicing patience with regard to their expectations for this franchise.
I know it’s tough to be a fan especially in New York and think “we’re almost there,” especially after 2006 – but the situation is...

Former New York Mets pitcher John Franco may be 52 years old and retired from baseball, but that doesn’t mean he can no longer throw. According to court papers that were recently filed by a woman who was in charge of Franco’s and his wife’s estate sale last year, he can still bring plenty of [...]
The streak continues, as does the heartbreak. Wade Miley pitched well enough to earn a win, but the bullpen let him down before Cody Ross hit a late game home run in the 13th. But the Mets had the last laugh, walking off in the bottom half of the inning to win, 5-4.
Once the rain stopped, the hits came for the New York Mets.
