Found July 06, 2013 on Mets Merized Online:
On Friday night, the Mets hammered the Milwaukee Brewers, defeating them by the final score of 12-5.  The Bad News Brewers committed three errors on the field and a number of mental errors on the bases.  Despite the Brew Crew’s valiant effort to become the butt of David Letterman’s next Top Ten list, it was two Mets players who really stood out.  One went 0-for-6 but took part in a fielding oddity, while the other reached base all six times he came up to the plate, something very few Mets had ever accomplished. Daniel Murphy did not have a good night at the dish, going hitless in six plate appearances on a night the Mets collected 14 hits.  But he did make up for it on the field, especially after committing what appeared to be a costly error in the first inning. In the second inning, with the Mets holding a 5-2 lead, pitcher Zack Wheeler got his Brewers’ counterpart Johnny Hellweg to hit a ground ball to Murphy.  Murphy threw out Hellweg at first base to end the inning. One inning l...

Mets recall 1B Davis from Triple-A

The New York Mets recalled first baseman Ike Davis from Triple-A Las Vegas. Davis, demoted on June 10 due to a poor start to the 2013 season, was batting fourth against Milwaukee on Friday night. Davis was hitting .161 with five home runs and 16 RBIs in 55 games before being sent down. He made some mechanical adjustments during his stay in the minors and batted .293 with seven...

Matt Harvey bares all in ESPN The Body Issue

Opposing batters have been undressed at the plate all season long by Mets phenom Matt Harvey.  Now the tables sort of get turned as the flame-throwing righthander bares all for the the 2013 edition of ESPN's The Body Issue. Harvey shows off the form that’s made him the ace of the Mets staff and an All-Star at Citi Field's big game next week in the magazine’s fifth annual...

Mets Would Need To Be “Blown Away” To Trade Bobby Parnell

Updated by Joe D. on 7/5 Updating this debut post by our newest addition Rob Costello, there’s this recent tweet by Ken Rosenthal who says that a team source told him that the Mets would need to be blown away to trade Bobby Parnell by this year’s trade deadline. That would make perfect sense and the reasons are outlined quite nicely by Rob below. This whole notion of trading...

Mets 2, Brewers 1

Josh Satin had two doubles and a single for the Mets, scoring one run and driving in the other to extend his hitting streak to 11 games. Hefner, who matched...

Featured Post: Harvey’s Good, But Not Good(en) or Terrific — Yet

Where there’s smoke, there’s Matt Harvey’s fire. By the time I arrived at Shea Stadium in mid-June, a Dwight Gooden start had become a New York event. I had been watching Gooden baffle opponents on television over the first two months of the 1985 season. The first month he shut out the Philadelphia Phillies twice and the Cincinnati Reds. From May and early June he pitched into...

Trade Deadline: Finding Underrated Talent in Milwaukee

As we approach the trading deadline, anybody who has a keyboard will be coming up with trade ideas for the New York Mets. The truth is, I try to stay away from the “rumor” machine because I feel like I’ve learned my lesson with getting enthralled in things that never actually happen. The Mets are in an interesting position because so much of what they do moving forward depends...

Programming Change

Independence Day is a day for great traditions. Backyard barbecues, Twilight Zone marathons, and baseball. But I find it distressing that, with no warning, SNY decided that instead of baseball, they were instead going to air the Twilight Zone marathon. Oh, that was a baseball game on SNY? Yeah, you could have fooled me. Because that was nothing short of bizarre that we witnessed...
