Over his last four starts, Daisuke Matsuzaka now has an ERA of 1.59. End of the 4th inning, his Mets lead the Reds 1-0. — FOX Sports Ohio (@FOXSportsOH) September 25, 2013 Daisuke Matsuzaka 3-hit shutout through 7 IP. #Mets 1, #Reds 0, end 7. #Pirates very happy. — Adam Rubin (@AdamRubinESPN) September 25, 2013 The last time Daisuke Matsuzaka went 7+ shutout innings was 8/27/2012 vs Royals. He’s done it 13 times in MLB. — High Heat Stats (@HighHeatStats) September 25, 2013 Today was Daisuke Matsuzaka‘s longest shutout outing in MLB in 2.5 years, since 4/23/11 vs Angels. Big-time performance vs Reds. — High Heat Stats (@HighHeatStats) September 25, 2013 Three straight wins for Daisuke Matsuzaka… really? He punched out six Reds over 7 2/3 shutout innings. Dice-K has been stingy lately allowing only four earned runs over his last 26 2/3 innings.       We’ll leave you with the highlight of the night. Benches clear in the Brewers-Braves game following a Carlos Gomez home run. Watch the heated exchange: http://t.co/c1yApCkiXm — Sportsnet (@Sportsnet) September 26, 2013 Sorry, this is on Carlos Gomez. — Tim Brown (@TBrownYahoo) September 25, 2013 Have to agree there. Carlos Gomez is a stud… but he acted like a punk last night. The post Fantasy Baseball News & Notes Update: September 25th, 2013 appeared first on Fantasy Sports Locker Room.

Mets Wrap: Suggesting Sandy Alderson Would Tank To Get Better Draft Pick Is Irresponsible

Why is this even a question for the New York Mets? ALDERSON: Stupid to suggest he would tank.
