Mets Merized Online:
What is the one thing aside from Jason Bay that really gets Mets fans in an uproar? All the Mets fans are screaming “the bullpen!!!” Well Mets fans, I have figured out what the Mets have to do to get this bullpen back on its feet.
There is only one player that can save the Mets bullpen and bring us back to the glory and dominance that was experienced in the mid 1980s. The following quote was cleaned up for our younger audience:
When I was 19 years old, I changed the face of professional baseball. I was handed the keys to the kingdom, multi-million dollar deals, endorsements. Everyone wanted a piece of me. Just a man with a mind for victory and an arm like a cannon. But sometimes when you bring the thunder, you get lost in the storm.
Fans of this player know exactly who I’m talking about. It’s Kenny Powers. That’s right, the Mer-Man himself. He’s exactly what the Mets need coming out of the bullpen to gain back that bad boy image they were notorious for in the mid 80s.

Zack Wheeler’s 11K performance for Double-A Binghamton might has earned him a promotion. He’s headed to Triple-A Buffalo, the team announced this afternoon.
Wheeler finishes with a 3.26 ERA during 19 starts for the B-Mets. He struck out 117 batters in 116 innings.

After weighing whether to have Zack Wheeler make his Triple-A debut on the road...
The trade deadline ended at 4:00 PM EDT and while the Mets Eastern Division rival were saying 'No Mas' in dealing away 2/3 of their outfield, the Mets stood idly by and didn't make a move.
Surprised? I'm not. The Mets don't have much to deal from in the way of trades. Scott Hairston has had a good year, but would not garner the type of player that would make...
July was a terrible month for Mets fans. After exiting the All Star break primed for a post season run, the season has spiraled out of control. Poor pitching, compounded by poorer execution at the plate and shotty defense have seen the Mets post season dreams, along with those of fans, shattered in short order. Understandably this has left the roster frustrated and the fanbase angry...

This afternoon at 3:45 pm, the Mets try to take 3 out of 4 from the NL West leading Giants. Chris Young (2-5 4.58 ERA) will face off against Barry Zito (8-7 3.89 ERA).
Last night Jon Niese turned in a great performance going seven strong, with the only blemish being a solo homer by Buster Posey in the Mets 2-1 victory. John Rauch, Tim Byrdak and Bobby Parnell came in to close...
Scott Hairston hit his second homer of the game, connecting in the 10th inning to send the New York Mets past the reeling San Francisco Giants 8-7 Monday night.
The Giants have lost five in a row, all at home. They lead the NL West by one percentage point over the Dodgers.
Hairston hit two-run homer in the eighth as the Mets scored four times for a 6-4 lead. Buster Posey and Nate...
Jonathon Niese scattered three hits over seven innings and Ruben Tejada homered for the first time in almost two years and singled twice, leading the New York Mets past the San Francisco Giants 2-1 on Wednesday night.
All San Francisco could squeeze out of Niese (8-5) was a two-out homer by Buster Posey in the sixth, the All-Star catcher's 14th long ball this season. Niese struck...
I just came back from an eerie, parking garage meeting with my sources and they inform me that Domingo Tapia, Starter for the Savannah Sand Gnats, is being groomed for a role as the future Mets closer. Take this news for what it is worth, as we’ve certainly heard the same thing about Parnell, Mejia and Familia in recent years but the news does make a certain amount of sense...
Sometimes the most interesting trades are the ones that don't happen.
Consider this fascinating change-of-scenery exchange that the Miami Marlins and New York Mets kicked around, according to major league sources:
Outfielder Jason Bay to the Marlins for reliever Heath Bell and catcher John Buck.
The deal never was close, sources said. But it would have enabled both clubs to...
