MIAMI -- Ike Davis finished off his strong second half with another home run. Davis hit his 32nd home run, his 20th after the All-Star break, to help lead the New York Mets beat the Miami Marlins 4-2 Wednesday in the season finale. "It's the way I expected to play the whole year," Davis said of his second half. "I just wasn't fortunate enough to start off hot, but that's the way baseball goes sometimes." Davis overcame a shaky start to finish with a .227 batting average and a career-high 90 RBIs.

Bobby Parnell pitched the ninth for his seventh save in 12 chances, extending his career-best scoreless inning streak to 11 1/3 innings. New ...

Welcome to our off-season, my Mets faithful! I realize there is still post-season baseball to be played (how ’bout those A’s, huh?) but for the Kings of Queens, the off-field work is already starting. As we at the Daily Stache begin the long wait until February 13...
Baseball America ranked the Top 20 Prospects in the New York-Penn League and featured four Mets farmhands in RHP Luis Mateo #5, CF Brandon Nimmo #11, RHP Hansel Robles #12 and SS Philip Evans #18. Not a bad showing at all. Here is what they had to say on each of them:5. Luis Mateo:He’s a true power pitcher who sits at 92-95 mph and touches 96 regularly, with good angle on his...
According to ESPN's Cy Young Predictor, R.A. Dickey still is ranked #1 to win the NL Cy Young by a small margin in which Gio Gonzalez trails him.. To make Dickey's case, he has more innings pitched, strikeouts, games, and a lower ERA, but has one less win than Gonzalez..
The one thing that Gonzalez has over Dickey (whether the voting media takes it into consideration...
Alderson’s Third Offseason: It’s Time To Put Up, Or Shut Up…Those team sources are talking to Adam Rubin at ESPN New York again. He says the Mets intend to keep payroll the same, turn over the roster mostly through trades, and nobody’s safe. That goes for you too Wright and Dickey…Metsblog summarizes the gist of it as follows:No one on the roster is viewed as ‘untouchable...

Terry Collins, New York Mets Manager, announced his entire coaching staff will return next year. Dan Warthen, hitting coach Dave Hudgens, third base coach Tim Teufel, first base coach Tom Goodwin and bullpen coach Ricky Bones will all be back with the club in 2013.
Collins’ future beyond that is still in question, though. The team never gave him much job security from the beginning...
It may be early October but this is the Halloween Roundtable edition. I reached out to friends in the Mets blogosphere recently to ask the following question:What’s the top priority for Sandy Alderson this offseason?These people all do great work and their names are hyperlinked to their blogs so please go ahead and click on them to check out their real stuff.Howard Megdal –...
In this MMO Roundtable edition, I asked our staff the following:What is the number one priority for the Mets this offseason?Mitch: While the outfield has some issues, the bullpen is priority number one. The Mets lost a bunch of games because of the bullpen’s inability to get the job done…I’m not sure how many games, if any, could be directly attributed to the lack of production...
After the season he had, it's pretty safe to say that R.A. Dickey will still be the topic of conversation long after baseball hands out its postseason awards.But one achievement might have eluded the New York Mets knuckleballer if not for "One At Bat". You see, of Dickey's National League leading 230 strikeouts...number 229 came against, you guessed it, Adam...

The 2012 regular season is in the books. And it has been an amazing season. We had someone hit for the Triple Crown. We had a rookie who hit 30 homers and steal more than 40 bases. We've seen more than a half a dozen no-hitters including some perfect games. Stars like Braun and Cano had massive seasons with high batting averages. Three starting catchers batted over .310. Yes...
