But don't worry, he cut himself out of the shark.

The Reasons For Jeremy Hefner’s Marked Improvement

Jeremy Hefner was drafted by the Mets out of high school in the 46th round of the 2004 June amateur draft.  He chose not to sign.  One year later, the Mets selected Hefner in the 48th round of the June amateur draft.  Once again, Hefner did not sign.  Instead, he transferred from small Seminole State College in Oklahoma to the much-larger and more scoutable Oral Roberts University...

The complete turnaround of Jeremy Hefner

For most of last year and for the first two months of this season, the only thing Jeremy Hefner had in common with that famous dude with the same last name was that both took a lot of early showers. This season, not only did Hefner lose his first five decisions, but the Mets lost the game in all ten of his first ten appearances. That was not good. In fact, the Mets lost twelve of...

Jeremy Hefner On Roll For Mets

There is a likeable quality to New York Mets pitcher Jeremy Hefner. He’s modest and unassuming, and has been stand-up in the bad times. However, recently it’s been good times for Hefner, Friday’s starter in Pittsburgh, who will be trying for his eighth straight strong outing. Hefner is coming off a one-run performance in seven innings last weekend in Milwaukee. Hefner has 12...

Jeremy Hefner videobombed by Mets teammates during pregame interview (Video)

New York Mets pitcher Jeremy Hefner was videobombed by several teammates while he was giving an interview prior to Tuesday night's game. Good to see that the players were having some fun. However, something tells us Bob Costas does not approve. H/T FTW. Visit us at and follow us on Twitter @HoldoutSports.

Jeremy Hefner Gets Video Bombed by Teammates

Life is pretty good for Jeremy Hefner at the moment; except when he’s getting interviewed. After being pelted by sunflower seeds by John Buck during an on screen interview earlier this year, Hefner was the butt of his teammates joke once again when being interviewed by SNY’s Kevin Burkhardt during their recent trip to San Francisco.  First, relief pitchers LaTroy Hawkins and...

Jeremy Hefner: The Improbable Dream

Starting pitcher Jeremy Hefner didn’t come to the Mets with all hype and bravado of an elite pitching prospect the way that his teammates Matt Harvey and Zack Wheeler did. In fact, most never even gave him a chance to be in the rotation, until news that Johan Santana would be out for the season made the news in Spring Training. Even then he was just one of three possible options...

Hefner Shines But Bucs Prevail In Extra-Inning Heartbreaker

Pedro Alvarez Homers In Pirates 3-2 Win  In front of a full house tonight at beautiful PNC Park, we were treated to a good, old fashioned (and quite frankly unexpected) pitcher’s duel between Jeremy Hefner and Charlie Morton, as the Mets battled the Pirates to open up their last set before the All-Star break. The Bucs got off to a quick start in the bottom of the first when Pedro...

Jeremy Hefner victimized by fantastic Kirk Nieuwenhuis videobomb (video)

While conducting an in-dugout interview on Tuesday during the New York Mets-San Francisco Giants tilt at AT&T Park with SNY’s Kevin Burkhardt, Mets pitcher Jeremy Hefner was on the receiving end of some phenomenal shenanigans courtesy of a few of his teammates. LaTroy Hawkins engaged in some background silliness, but the star of the sideshow [...]The post Jeremy Hefner victimized...

Mets-Pirates Preview

The Pittsburgh Pirates' offense finally got in gear to back up another brilliant starting pitching performance. Getting anything going against Jeremy Hefner could prove to be far more difficult. The Pirates will try to win back-to-back games for the first time in nearly two weeks Friday night against a resurgent New York Mets team going for its first five-game road winning...

Mets Player Moves With An Eye Toward 2014

As the trade deadline nears, the debate grows more intense every day as to the approach the Mets should take with respect to their more marketable players. Should they approach next year with an expectation to contend and hold on to all key components of what appears to be a newly energized roster? Or should they be taking a hard look at the big picture for holes yet to be filled...

Finishing strong

If the Pirates sweep the Mets this weekend, they'll go into the break with a 6-6 record after their nine-game winning streak. 15-6 isn't a bad run. Matt Harvey is skipping his start this weekend, so hey, anything's possible. Tonight, Charlie Morton pitches for the Pirates against Jeremy Hefner. Hefner was a Pirate for less than a month in November and December of...
