When you think about it really, the whole day wasn't one of the Mets' finer days.First, we found out that even though Matt Harvey was solid against the Toledo Mud Hens, that we would still have to be subjected to one more Miguel Batista start on Saturday.Then, we got to endure eight innings of Jason Bay and his uselessness and his double plays and his attempted sacrifice flies which are caught twenty feet away from the infield dirt, hence turning into fly outs that don't sacrifice a damn thing.And then what we thought would be the greatest move of the night only turned out to be the most painful, as with two runners on with the ninth Terry Collins pinch hit for Bay with Jordany Valdespin. Oh sure, we loved it when Valdespin hit that three run home run off Tyler Clippard to give the Mets the lead. But with the crappy Mets bullpen being entrusted with a lead, the home run only dragged out the horror. I could have lived with a tidy, quick, 2-0 loss where the biggest complai...
BEST OF MAXIM
AROUND THE WEB
Jason Bay is with the rest of the team in Washington this afternoon and taking early batting practice.
The Mets have not activated Bay yes according to Adam Rubin, but it looks like that could happen before the game.
All signs point to Jason Bay being activated for Tuesday’s series opener against the Nationals, although the Mets have yet to formally announce the roster move...
Mets special assistant J.P. Ricciardi was one of the Mets entourage on hand as prospect Matt Harvey pitched 6.2 innings and allowed two runs in what was tabbed as his audition for a possible major league debut this Saturday against the Los Angeles Dodgers.
“He’s a good one,” said Ricciardi, who sat behind home plate. “But he didn’t have his best stuff tonight. He showed...
Despite management’s decision to have Miguel Batista start on Saturday, there is a great outcry to have 2010 first round pick Matt Harvey called up and fill the void in the rotation left by Dillon Gee’s blood clot injury.
The logic makes sense. Harvey has handled triple-A pretty well and the Mets seem to lack the depth necessary to effectively fill in for Gee. Even if Gee was...
Mets outfielder Jason Bay recently joined the Buffalo Bisons on a rehab stint. After playing the first two games of his stint with the Bisons in Pawtucket, the star outfielder made his first start in Buffalo on Monday night. Queen City Sports was at Coca-Cola Field and has the latest:
Bay is expected to rejoin the Mets later this week.
Remember, for all your latest Bisons news,...
If giving up two runs in six and 2/3's innings is what Matt Harvey does when he's rusty, I can't wait to see what this kid can do on normal rest. And normal rest would have him pitching on Saturday.Perhaps Saturday will find him pitching against the Dodgers at Citi Field?Yeah, not exactly the Toledo Mud Hens. But then again, and he's the most important point I can...
It’s funny how this stuff works out.
Before each season, SNY and the Mets decide which Buffalo Bisons game to air on SNY. If you didn’t know, the Bisons are the Mets’ Triple-A affiliate.
So the Bisons play Toledo at home right now. Jason Bay is starting in left field and batting second. But that’s not the big news of the game.
I’m sure that most of you have heard of Matt...
The verdict is in on Harvey…
Today in Washington, Sandy Alderson announced that Miguel Batista will start Saturday’s game against the Dodgers and NOT Matt Harvey..
Last night for the Bisons, Harvey allowed two runs and three hits with four walks and four strikeouts in 6 2/3 innings against Triple-A Toledo in front of a group of Mets scouts and executives that included J...
BUFFALO, NY - Buffalo Bisons right-hander Matt Harvey may be new to Twitter, but the speculation that he could be the next Mets pitching call-up from Buffalo has led to an overwhelming flood of messages. So much so that Harvey has had to take a twitter break.
Nothing A Little Winning Streak Won’t Cure
Toledo 4, Buffalo 2

In what may amount to the last Triple-A start for Matt Harvey, he had a strong outing but Jenrry Mejia continued to struggle and the Bisons lost the first game against the Toledo Mudhens, 4-2.
Matt Harvey went out today and from the start of the game did not have his best control. Harvey’s final line...
In what might be his final start for the Buffalo Bisons, starter Matt Harvey threw five innings of hit-less ball, earning a no-decision on Monday night as Toledo rallied late to defeat Buffalo 4-2.
After going into the 6th inning with a no-hitter, Harvey struggled in the 6th and 7th innings, allowing two runs and three hits before being pulled with 2-outs in the 7th.
For the first time in too long, we did a podcast. I’m joined by Mack Ade from Mack’s Mets and we talked about Matt Harvey, Zack Wheeler, Darin Gorski, Brandon Nimmo and more.

By Ben Standig WASHINGTON – What's the difference between urgency, pressing and panic? That's something outfielder Jason Bay pondered in the Mets clubhouse following New York's latest loss. Unless they snap out of their current slump, the Mets could experience all three soon enough. Adam LaRoche smacked a two-run home run, Steve Lombardozzi had two RBIs and the...
So what’s that five in a row now? I’m not in the mood to check, but I’m pretty certain this may be our longest losing streak of the season. The worst part of course is that three of those five games should have been in the win column including last night’s. Ugh… Last night…
With all due respect to my colleague’s “rah-rah, there’s plenty of season left” post this...
