One is the Loneliest Number:
One streak ended while another continued. And not in the way the Diamondbacks wanted. Patrick Corbin ended up on the hook for his opponent’s winning run for the first time all year. The Diamondbacks ended up being blown out Tuesday by the Mets, 9-1.
BEST OF MAXIM
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...
Everybody out of the pool!
That’s the cry from the Mets’ fan base, directed at their training facility in Port St. Lucie. That’s where Travis d’Arnaud is running in water, strengthening his rehabbing foot and balky knee. That’s because John Buck has reverted to his regular old self. That’s not good for the team, the front office or the fans.
April was a beautiful...
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...
The Mets announced today that Zach Lutz has been optioned to Triple-A Las Vegas, a corresponding move to the call-up of RHP Gonzalez Germen. Germen will wear number 71.
Roster move: RHP Gonzalez Germen recalled from Las Vegas. He will wear #71. Zach Lutz optioned to Las Vegas.

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...
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.
2000 IONIX AWESOME POWERS MIKE PIAZZA
Continuing on with our brief series of goofily named insert cards, this week we present for your consideration a 2000 Upper Deck Ionix Mike Piazza Awesome Powers.
Ionix was a one-and-done offering from Upper Deck, and it is as much a product of the year 2000 as Y2K hangovers and Subway Series remorse. It contains a swath of tech...
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...
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 CBSSports.com’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.
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,...

There’s this guy in New York that has been playing first base for about two weeks now. He struggled in his first few plate appearances (the first of which came on June 12th). Pinch hitting and showing up only late in the game, he had three straight plate appearances with nothing to show for it.
But he didn’t let that discourage himself. The next game he played in, he...
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...

It’s pretty easy rooting for Josh Satin. All the kid has really ever wanted to do is play baseball, and wherever he’s played, he’s excelled. Two things remain consistent about Satin’s baseball run over a lengthy span of years. The kid can hit and more often than not, he’s selected as an all-star.
Satin was a three time all-star selection as a Wolverine for the Harvard Westlake...
