Found April 29, 2013 on Metstradamus:
Tonight's matchup between the Flushing Nine and the Miami Lorias is being billed as the phenom matchup ... Matt Harvey vs. Jose Fernandez. While this is true, remember that only one of these pitchers has been lit up in his last two starts. And it's not the one that wears blue. (You know, real blue ... not what the Marlins call blue.) The problem is that it only seems to be the Mets lineup that has problems with young pitchers like Fernandez, or Jonathan Pettibone, or somebody who walks in off the street. But the good news is the Mets' side of the probable pitcher column. The guy who hasn't been lit up yet this season. What's better is that he's facing the Marlins, who should slink away meekly as long as Giancarlo Stanton comes to bat three times with the bases empty. (Considering who's batting leadoff in front of him, it's a distinct possibility) But with David Wright not in the starting lineup Monday, I'd be ready to settle in for a long 0-0 ...

Matt Harvey looks to end the Mets skid

Last week New York Mets manager Terry Collins referred to Matt Harvey as his Ace.  With a 4-0 record and 1.54 ERA, it’s hard to argue with Collins and Harvey will have yet another opportunity to prove worth of the title when the Mets head to Miami tonight to face the Marlins in the midst of a season-high four game losing streak.  Getting swept at home by the Phillies like the...

The New York Mets' star third baseman David Wright has been removed from Monday night's lineup with a stiff neck, reports Kristie Ackert of the New York Daily News.

Wright Questionable For Tonight, But Not As Questionable As Collins’ Recent Moves

The bad news about the Mets keeps getting worse. David Wright, who was supposed to rest his stiff neck last night, was used as a pinch-hitter and now he’s questionable for tonight’s game at Miami, While it is conjecture Wright might have done something to aggravate his condition, the question can’t help be asked. Seriously, is winning a game in April worth losing Wright for...

Nice Guys Finish Last: David Wright’s Decision To Stay

The street I live on is a fairly quiet residential one lane road. Three miles to the south it meanders up into the foothills that look down on the valley. It gives way to an expansive residence, the proverbial mansion on the hill. At night, the home is illuminated in a sea of blackness. There’s nothing close by and the property seems big enough to warrant its own zip code. On many...

The New York Mets Future Is Bright

The New York Mets aren’t a very good team right now, they haven’t been for a few years now either.  It is hard to be a New York Mets fan right now but you can see a light at the end of the tunnel.  If nothing else every fifth day when Matt Harvey is on the mound you have to feel that the Mets are going to win and that they could be the best team in baseball on that day.  Harvey...

Mets-Marlins Preview

His team won again, but New York Mets ace Matt Harvey wasn't particularly pleased with his last performance. The hard-throwing right-hander might feel different after facing the major league-worst Miami Marlins for the first time. Harvey will look to become the third Mets starter in franchise history to go 5-0 in April on Monday night when rookie Jose Fernandez gets his fifth...

Sobering Week For The Mets

After taking 2 of 3 from the Nationals last weekend, the Mets then dropped 5 of the next 6 games. The only game the Mets won was a start by Matt Harvey where he wasn’t his best, but the rest of staff stepped up. The 5 losses in the last week, and a good portion of the losses earlier in the season have come from the bullpen. Sometimes I want to blame Terry and how he’s pressing...

David Wright Hurts Neck; Larry David Explains How He Hurt It

David Wright will not play tonight against the Miami Marlins for what Mets Manager Terry Collins says is a stiff neck. Now this is not considered to be serious and he should be back in the lineup before the Mets leave Miami. But, of course when it comes to injuries and the Mets, you really never know. Of course, one of the things I was wondering was just how did Wright, who reported...

Learning Lessons From 2012 Slow Starters

We preach “practice excruciating patience!” Every year slow starters become an issue for fantasy owners scrambling to fix what ails their team – including me. Yes, I preach “practice excruciating patience!” all the time, yet I don’t even listen to that at times. Yes, I was guilty of shopping around Giancarlo Stanton in my friends league, trying to see if anyone would...

Today’s Mets DUH Moment: Problem With Bullpen Is Because Of Rotation

Terry Collins believes that part of the problem with the team’s bullpen is because the starting rotation is failing to go deep into games. He says it has been putting an incredible strain on all of his relievers. Ya think? Aside from Matt Harvey and Jon Niese, who combined are averaging over six innings per start, the rest of the rotation has been averaging 4.2 innings per start...
