Aaron Laffey Gets Ball For Mets

If the Mets had a perfect world, Aaron Laffey wouldn’t start for them until June or July. That his start comes in the season’s fifth game tells you how tissue thin their rotation is. Game six, and already the Mets are into two pitchers that weren’t in their immediate plans as Johan Santana is gone for good and Shaun Marcum is out indefinitely. Question: Who will we see first...

Fernandez Sparkles, Pen Fizzles

The Major League debut of Jose Fernandez went about as well as the Miami Marlins could have hoped until he left the game.   The phenom set a Marlins record by striking out eight batters in his debut.  Unfortunately with a pitch limit in place, Fernandez was lifted after five innings and it all went downhill from there.  At the end of the day, the New York Mets came away 4-3 winners...

Game Preview: Mets @ Phillies

The Mets start their first road series of the year in Philadelphia tonight. The Mets are fresh off of winning their first two series of year for the first time since 2006 and their first walk off win of the year. Aaron Laffey allowed a lot of hits in the first 4.1 innings and somehow only 3 earned runs. The bullpen took over after that and didn’t allow a single run and the Mets...

Marlins drop solid debut from Jose Fernandez

NEW YORK (AP) -- Marlon Byrd grounded a two-run single just inside third base in the bottom of the ninth inning to give the New York Mets a 4-3 victory over the Miami Marlins on Sunday. Daniel Murphy homered and Anthony Recker had a run-scoring double for the Mets, who spoiled an impressive major league debut by prized Miami pitching prospect Jose Fernandez. Justin Ruggiano, Chris...

Do Cuban Pitchers Cause Attendance Spikes in Miami?

When the Marlins announced their opening day rotation, there was one shocking last minute addition: 20-year-old Jose Fernandez. One of the top pitching prospects in baseball, there had been no talk about carrying him on the Opening Day roster, and he was one of the Marlins first cuts earlier in spring training. While he’s an intriguing talent, he also hasn’t yet pitched above...

Hoping Hitters Go 0-fer Against Jo-Fer

Last year, the Buy/Sell brought you such brilliant ideas as “Eric Thames is gonna be a river running through your heart!” and “Brennan Boesch is more like Brennan Bauce.” Buy/Sell, “You know, I don’t point all of your crappy suggestions… A.J. Mass was talking about buying me an acre of land in Kentucky and letting me run around with all of his stolen base draft picks...
