BOX SCORE

I’m just going to leave this post as a picture with the attached box score. It’s pretty simple… If Jason Bay starts hitting homeruns like he did today and Murphy continues being an awesome hitter, the Mets’ offense will thrive. I do think Ike Davis will start hitting and Lucas Duda too. We will see…

Jason Bay’s struggles continue

With an 0-for-3 performance on Wednesday afternoon, Jason Bay has seen his average dip to below the mendoza line, collecting three hits in 19 2012 at-bats: During one of Bay’s at-bats, I tweeted the following: Considering the response and the amount of Re-Tweets it received, it think it is safe to assume that most fans feel the same. However, it is becoming clear that the Mets...

Jason Bay Scratched With Jammed Finger

Just as abdominal injuries were this spring, it appears finger injuries have become contagious as Jason Bay will miss today's game with a jammed index finger.Originally scheduled to have the afternoon off, Lucas Duda is back in the lineup for the Mets. Scott Hairston, who was going to fill in for Duda in right, will now slide over to left to fill in for Bay.The injury doesn&...

Mets Have No Options With Bay

The Mets have been here before, saddled with an unproductive player and a huge contract. It wasn’t too long ago the Mets cursed the existence of Oliver Perez. Now it is Jason Bay. A significant difference is while Perez’s attitude in the clubhouse turned teammates against him, Bay remains a popular figure because he plays hard and hustles. He just can’t hit. With Andres Torres...

Time to Consider Releasing Jason Bay

The obvious issue with Jason Bay is the .158 batting average glares from the scoreboard. Even more concerning is the process he’s employed to get to this point. Throughout the spring and first week of the season, Bay has looked confused and anemic at the plate. Very few of his plate appearances are of quality. Even left handers haven’t been a tonic for his slump. His first...

Don’t get too excited about Jason Bay…

I feel whenever Jason Bay hits a home run or has a multi-hit game Mets bloggers, and analysts start going crazy. They talk about how his stroke might be back, and that Bay has finally found himself. But lets be honest, he is batting .174 this year and is far far away from his Pittsburgh or Boston self. The stats speak for themselves: Jason Bay is a great guy don’t get me wrong...

Bay and Duda Showing Signs Of Life At The Plate

Despite the Mets early season success to this point, the lineup os not firing on all cylinders.  As good as some players (David Wright, Ruben Tejada and Josh Thole) have looked at the plate, the likes of Jason Bay, Lucas Duda and Ike Davis have looked equally lost.That has started to change this weekend.  Both Bay and Duda have hit homeruns in Philadelphia and each proved to be...

Tough Series For Larry Vanover, More Replay Needed?

Through the first six games, the umpiring in the games the Mets have played has been rather suspect. But we really saw it take a turn for the worse this series against the Nationals. Larry Vanover, a 21-year MLB veteran umpire, made a few key questionable calls in this series. The first actually benefitted the Mets when Adam LaRoche was called out at second base in the first game...

Jason Bay Scratched

Jason Bay was scratched from today’s lineup due to a jammed right ring finger. He injured himself diving into a base in yesterdays game. X-Rays came back negative. Hairston will move to LF and bat fifth. Duda will play RF and bat sixth.

Bay and Hairston Homer In Mets 5-2 Win Over Phillies

Recap R.A. Dickey continues to roll with the punches as he got tagged for nine hits but only allowed one batter to touch home. The knuckleballer mixed in his fastball nicely today and his knuckler was on que today with only one mistake of homerun against Chase Utley’s no name replacement. He pitched for seven innings, allowing just one run on nine hits and one walk. Dickey continues...

Mid-Life Crisis

With the Mets turning 50 years old on Wednesday, you wonder about that "mid-life crisis". Most middle aged men buy sportscars. The Mets go out and buy helicopter rides to Heat games. And if spending $64 million on Jason Bay doesn't scream "mid-life crisis", then get every graying man a Porsche because it doesn't look stupid at all ... not at all.You want...

Post Game: Mets Take Opener in Philly 5-2
