Hot Josh Satin Could Hurt Mets’ Chances Of Trading Ike Davis

The New York Mets are close to entering the dilemma stage with first baseman Ike Davis. At the beginning of the season Davis was considered part of the Mets’ core, but for the second straight year slumped out of the gate. This time, the Mets tired of waiting for the flourish that never came and shipped him to Triple-A Las Vegas where he would presumably get “fixed,’’ by manager...

Zack Wheeler: Early Bust or Budding Brilliance?

When he debuted just a few weeks ago, Zack Wheeler was met with tremendous fanfare.  Since then, and a 5.09 ERA with nine earned runs given up later, there have been whispers amongst the fan base, the amateur pontiffs in social media, and overly-opinionated professionals like Craig Carton of WFAN, that Wheeler is a bust.  While it may be debatable whether or not he was called up...

Mets Call Up Gonzalez Germen, Zach Lutz Optioned To Vegas

Germen will wear number 71.   Roster move: RHP Gonzalez Germen recalled from Las Vegas. He will wear #71. Zach Lutz optioned to Las Vegas. — New York Mets (@Mets) July 2, 2013

Matt Harvey Making All-Star Push

HARVEY: Should be named NL starter in All-Star Game After tonight’s start for the New York Mets, the next time Matt Harvey steps on the Citi Field mound should be to start the All-Star Game. Support for Harvey to start has gone on for several weeks to the point of it now being a brushfire. San Francisco and National League manager Bruce Bochy all but named Harvey the starter yesterday...

Despite 13th inning home run, D-Backs fall

The streak continues, as does the heartbreak. Wade Miley pitched well enough to earn a win, but the bullpen let him down before Cody Ross hit a late game home run in the 13th. But the Mets had the last laugh, walking off in the bottom half of the inning to win, 5-4. 

Mets Card of the Week: 2000 Mike Piazza

King of New York: Comparing Derek Jeter and David Wright

At 30-years-old in his 10th professional season in the major leagues, David Wright has earned the distinction as the King of New York. He is the most valuable position player in the city in 2013 just the same as he was in 2008, and when comparing his first body of work to Derek Jeter’s first 10 seasons, it’s close to undeniable to proclaim that Wright hasn’t been at or above...

Report: Diamondbacks in talks for Gallardo

It’s no secret the Diamondbacks’ rotation is in need of a boost, and that boost may come in the form of veteran ace Yovani Gallardo. A report by’s Jon Heyman says the Diamondbacks and Brewers may be in early talks aimed at bringing the 27-year-old righty to Arizona, possibly in return for Tyler Skaggs. 

Miguel Montero Performed ******** on his Bats last night

Arizona's Miguel Montero licked and slobbered all over his bats last night against the Mets. Didn't excite the bats - the Diamondbacks' catcher went 0-5 and the Mets won in extras,... Full story at Bob's Blitz ~

Diamondbacks 5, Mets 3

Randall Delgado outpitched Matt Harvey for his first major league win in more than a year, and the Arizona Diamondbacks snapped a five-game skid with a 5-3 victory over the New York Mets after a long rain delay Wednesday night. Cody Ross hit a three-run homer off Harvey to put Arizona ahead, and Delgado struck out a career-high nine in seven innings to give the NL West leaders their...

Is Miguel Montero Coming Out of the Closet?

Video: Blows not one, but two bats

Mets-Brewers Preview

Following a promising debut, top prospect Zack Wheeler hasn't been quite as sharp for the New York Mets. Perhaps a date with one of the worst teams in baseball can boost his confidence. The Mets will try to begin a nine-game road trip in positive fashion Friday night when they send the hard-throwing right-hander to the mound against the lowly Milwaukee Brewers. While he hasn...
