New York Mets Report:
Well, the Mets weren’t going to lose them all. Jordany Valdespin, whose personality would be ideal for an NBA point guard, hit a three-run pinch-hit home run in the sixth inning to lift the Mets to a 7-6 victory to snap a six-game losing streak. “We got some offense going,’’ manager Terry Collins said. “The most frustrating thing about the past six days is we’ve been in the games. We’ve given ourselves a chance, we just haven’t been able to create any offense. Hopefully today is a start.’’
VALDESPIN: High-fives all around after homer.
ON THE MOUND: Dillon Gee (2-4) picked up the victory despite so-so effort, giving up four runs on nine hits in five innings. Perhaps him winning was justice served, as the Mets had given him just ten runs in his previous five starts. … Bobby Parnell, who was testy about being bypassed for a save opportunity in Tuesday’s loss, used just seven pitches in a 1-2-3 ninth for the save.
AT THE PLATE: Valdespin’s homer was one of many important hits for the Met
BEST OF MAXIM
The New York Mets have a weapon, and that weapon's name is Jordany Valdespin. The 25 year old made his MLB debut last season and has been belting clutch homeruns ever since. In his brief career (117 games), he's blasted 6 pinch-hit homeruns in 58 plate appearances. That's 1 pinch-hit homerun for every 10 pinch-hitting opportunities. His pinch-hitting OPS is .842...
Just when they needed him most, Jeremy Hefner pitched a lights-out game for the Mets with eight shutout innings, but was betrayed by another ninth-inning collapse in a 2-1 loss to the Miami Marlins, which extended their losing streak to six games. Pinch-hitter Chris Coghlan led off the ninth with a single, took second on a passed ball by catcher Anthony Recker, advanced to third...
Erie 11, Binghamton 4
The Erie SeaWolves tagged Rafael Montero for ten runs on ten hits and handed the Binghamton Mets an 11-4 loss on Wednesday night at NYSEG Stadium. Francisco Pena collected three hits and drove in two runs in the losing effort.
The B-Mets were in control for the first three innings. Binghamton grabbed the lead in the second against Erie starter Victor Larez....
What can be said about last night’s Mets game that hasn’t already been said about my high school prom.
It was long, nobody could score and it turned out to be a huge waste of time.
They say hindsight is 20/20, but my foresight in this one wasn’t so bad either. There were a few poor decisions that were easily predictable.
I’m still flabbergasted by Terry Collins’ inexplicable...
Matt Harvey was named the Pitcher of the Month for April, the first Met to win the honor since R.A. Dickey last did so in June, 2012.
Harvey, 24, went 4-0 with a 1.56 ERA and 46 strikeouts in six April starts. His four wins tied for the National League lead, while his 1.56 ERA is third in the league for the month. His 46 strikeouts are tied for fourth in the league.
Anyone out there remember Ray Sadecki? He was a starter/reliever for the Mets from 1970-1974 and was the kind of pitcher the Mets could actually use right now because of his effectiveness in that role.
They could have also used Sadecki in 2007 or 2008, which is when I chose his name on the LoHud blog when John Delcos was running the site before Howard Megdal. Those two seasons will...
Johan Santana will always be remembered by Mets fans. He has a certain spot in the history of the franchise for throwing the club’s first and only no-hitter (until Matt Harvey throws one).
Not a single Mets fan regrets the decision that Terry Collins made to keep Santana in. He threw a career high 134 pitches in the game and was far from perfect, but he got what everyone wanted...
Fort Myers 3, St. Lucie 2
The Fort Myers Miracle edged out the St. Lucie Mets on Thursday, on a night where Alex Panteliodis made his FSL debut. Pants was able to provide five effective innings in his season debut and first start off the DL, where he allowed an earned run off just four hits and a walk. His only blemish was allowing a solo home run in the fourth inning, and otherwise...
I have had this picture in my mind when it comes to the New York Mets over the last few years. Don't bother running a Google Image search for it, because it doesn't exist except for in my head. I picture David Wright in the dugout, looking at the camera with the most exasperated look on his face as if to say "you're going to make me go out there again", or ...
Perhaps a day game is just what the Mets need to change their luck. Tune in today at 12:40 PM to find out!

I’m sure that the Mets player that is his roommate on the road has got some amazing stories to tell already.

Is it time to worry about Zack Wheeler?
No, it's not.
I know it's not a good way to hold the reader's attention to give the answer at the top. But I've never been into one singular form to translate into function. But all this hullabaloo about Zack Wheeler is useless. Bottom line is that Wheeler's stats in Las Vegas mean nothing, and we knew that going...
