Palm Beach 7, St. Lucie 3 St Lucie’s six game winning streak was snapped tonight by the Palm Beach Cardinals.  St Lucie’s starter Angel Cuan pitched six solid innings in the loss. Cuan allowed one unearned run in the second inning, and surrendered a solo home run to Stephen Piscotty in the fourth inning. St. Lucie was leading 3-2 in the seventh when Cuan exited the game. While Cuan was not dominant, he pitched effectively enough to deserve the win. Unfortunately, the St. Lucie bullpen couldn’t hold on to the lead. Estarlin Morel entered the game in relief of Cuan with a man on base and quickly yielded a RBI double to the first batter he faced. However, Morel was able to escape the inning without allowing any more runs. The Palm Beach Cardinals took the lead in the eighth off St Lucie reliever Randy Fontanez.  Fontanez allowed three runs in the inning, which put the game out of reach for St. Lucie. Offensivley, Dustin Lawley was St. Lucie’s lone producer. In the fourth inning, Lawley...

Jordany Valdespin Doesn’t Care What You Think

He homered Valdy Style. When Jordany Valdespin walloped a ninth-inning homer into the second deck in right field – the “Pepsi Porch” – he flipped his bat and watched the ball soar, not exactly toeing the line on baseball etiquette. But Valdespin seems unlikely to change. “When you hit the ball, you got to enjoy your hit,” he said. “Every time I hit the ball, homer...

Matt Harvey Has All Star Game On His Mind

We’ve all heard and read about how much winning means to Matt Harvey. On MMO alone I believe I counted at least two posts entitled “All Matt Harvey Cares About Is Winning.” On MetsBlog you’ll find three times as many such posts. Harvey reminds us all of how much he wants to win every five days. He’s the textbook definition of a fierce competitor. But thanks to Steve Serby...

Wally Backman Says Zack Wheeler Is Two Weeks Away From Mets Debut

Las Vegas manager Wally Backman believes Zack Wheeler‘s big league promotion could be about two weeks away, according to a report by Adam Rubin on ESPN New York. “Personally, I think if he has a couple of more starts like his last start he’ll be headed to the big leagues, and rightfully so,” Backman told Las Vegas’ ESPN radio affiliate. We’ll have our Las Vegas beat...

Marcum Ineffective Again, Gets Early Shower In 7-3 Mets Loss

The Mets lost a sleeper this evening to the Pittsburgh Pirates by the score of 7-3 at a sparsely filled Citi Field. Shaun Marcum was making his third start of the season for the Mets and once again failed to last five innings. The truth is he’s looked awful every time out there, but tonight was the worst we’ve seen yet. Marcum, now 0-3, saw his ERA balloon to 8.59 for the season...

Blocked By Adam Rubin: Is There An After Life?

It was this post that I wrote after Matt Harvey’s brilliant start on Tuesday that started it all. I had a ton of respect for Adam Rubin and how he covered the team. I never took his snark seriously and honestly felt bad for the way Omar Minaya shouted him out in 2010. Most people who I proudly call my friends through the #MetsTwitter world thought I was nuts. They cursed his name...

Mets Game Recap: This Team Is Fractured

How long have you been coming to this site? Two years? Five years? Nine years? The Mets lost to the Pirates today by the score of 11-2 and after nine years of writing recaps for this site and being the one responsible for doing so today, all I can do is offer you an apology instead. I didn’t have a recap in me after this game. I was too angry… I was too disgusted… The team...

There’s a Doc Gooden Book Coming out Soon

Because I’m a huge sucker for anything 80′s and especially anything mid-80′s New York Mets, I’ll probably buy Doc: A Memoir and read it within a couple days even though I am already reading a Mickey Mantle book and a Lenny Dykstra book. I think we’ve all heard the story of Doc Gooden’s morning the day after he became a World Series champion. In case you have not, here...

Mets 3, Pirates 2

Center fielder Juan Lagares robbed Andrew McCutchen of a go-ahead hit in the top of the ninth inning, then pinch-hitter Mike Baxter's single in the bottom half sent the New York Mets over the Pittsburgh Pirates 3-2 Thursday night. Baxter delivered his second winning pinch-hit in three days. His 10th-inning single Tuesday beat the Chicago White Sox. This time, Baxter batted...

Pedro’s hot bat not enough as Bucs fall to Mets

Pedro Alvarez drove in 2 runs for the Pirates tonight, but it wasn’t enough as they dropped game one of the four-game series with the Mets, 3-2. After a combined hitless inning and a half by both starting pitchers, Jeff Locke got himself into some trouble in the 2nd inning.  John Buck singled to start…
