Josh Satin’s value to the Mets

It’s no surprise that as the Mets sit here in July, many new faces have come up and seen time in the big leagues. One of those new faces has come up and taken over at first base. That is none other than Josh Satin.  With Ike Davis finding himself in the minors and Lucas Duda hurt, the Mets turned to a prospect that they liked, but just couldn’t find room for at the big league...

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 naked in a white bath robe launches dirty memes

New York Mets pitcher Matt Harvey was photographed for ESPN the Magazine’s Body Issue, which is due out next week. The second-year pitcher has dominated this season, going 7-2 with a 2.27 ERA in 123 innings. His hot start was enough to make him a person of interest for ESPN’s shoot, and the magazine sent [...]

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...

A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To Our 100 Loss Season

Over the years there have been plenty of great 1-2 combinations: Ruth and Gehrig, Spahn and Sain, Jackie and Pee Wee, Mays and McCovey, Seaver and Kooz, Newman and Redford, Fielder and Cabrera, Bonds and…Huh? Newman and Redford??? In 1969, veteran Hollywood actor Paul Newman and relative newcomer Robert Redford teamed up to star in one of the greatest and most fun westerns of...

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...

D-backs outlast Mets in wild 15-inning finale

NEW YORK (AP) -- Cliff Pennington hit an RBI single with two outs in the 15th inning and the Arizona Diamondbacks, boosted early by Gerardo Parra's bunt double, finally outlasted the New York Mets 5-4 in a back-and-forth classic Thursday to split an exhausting series at Citi Field. Arizona scored in the final three innings but couldn't close out the feisty Mets until Brad...

Mets 9, Diamondbacks 1

Once the rain stopped, the hits came for the New York Mets. Jeremy Hefner and the Mets handed Patrick Corbin his first loss, breaking away from the Arizona Diamondbacks 9-1 on a drizzly Tuesday night and sending the NL West leaders to their season-worst fifth straight defeat. Josh Satin hit an RBI double that put the Mets ahead 2-1 in a seven-run seventh inning that lasted about...

Mets-Brewers Preview

Following a promising debut, top prospect Zack Wheeler hasn't been quite as sharp for the New York Mets. Perhaps a date with one of the worst teams in baseball can boost his confidence. The Mets will try to begin a nine-game road trip in positive fashion Friday night when they send the hard-throwing right-hander to the mound against the lowly Milwaukee Brewers. While he hasn...

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...
