Collins Pulled Hefner Because He Was Excited For Him

Updated Post 10:00 AM After last night’s suspended play, Terry Collins explained that he removed Jeremy Hefner from the game after the sixth because he was excited for him. “When he came off after the sixth, he could have probably started the seventh inning, because he was feeling OK,” Collins said. “But I was so excited that he pitched so well after he’s been so down about...

Our Ike Davis May Not Even Be The Best Ike Davis

Ike Davis is as confused about the title of this post as he is with a bat in his hands. I’m sure you’re looking at the title of this post, scratching your head and wondering what the fudge I’m talking about.  Well, the Ike Davis currently playing for the Mets is not the first player named Ike Davis to suit up for a major league team.  And with the way the 21st century Ike...

Roundtable: What is Wilmer Flores’ trade value?

Tuesday’s column on Wilmer Flores drew a strong reaction so I thought I would ask my friends in the blogosphere about his trade value.  I asked them to respond to the following questions: Flores is 21 and playing at Triple-A, one of the four youngest full-time position players in the PCL.  He also was not ranked in any major preseason Top 100 list and has gotten off to a so...

Team Source On Wheeler: “He’s Ready”

Updated By Joe D. On 5/23 A high-ranking team official told he New York Post on Thursday that barring a setback, Zack Wheeler is expected to make 2-3 more starts for Triple-A Las Vegas and then join the Mets. If Wheeler remains on normal rest, that would put his Mets debut somewhere in the June 6-11 range. “If not for the minor setback with the shoulder, he might already be here...

The 2013 Mets Are Suffering From A Lack Of Accountability

Matt Harvey has it. So does David Wright. Ike Davis tried to show it Wednesday, but only had warning track power. It is accountability, which is the backbone to admit screwing up. We certainly didn’t see any the past few days from the Knicks, so let’s turn to the Mets. After losing Thursday to the Reds, Harvey was front-and-center about his performance and threw high-heat at...

Mets Ace Matt Harvey Is Dating A Sports Illustrated Model

  Mets ace/their only hope Matt Harvey is living the dream life right now. Despite his team being on one of the worst in baseball, he’s emerged as a diamond in the rough to capture the attention of the biggest sports town in the country and has taken the sport in general by storm. Off the field he’s doing even better. He’s been reportedly dating SI model Anne Vyalitsyna, the...

What Does Wheeler Mean to the Mets

Let’s be honest. There’s not a single die hard Mets fan out there that hasn’t been sitting around waiting for the debut of Harvey. The days where we can brag “look at that 1-2 punch! Harvey, Wheeler! Your team might as well just not show up until they try to avoid a sweep.” That’s basically what everyone expects having been told that Wheeler is actually better than Harvey...

It’s Not The Approach That’s The Mets’ Problem, It’s The Execution

Early in the spring we did a post mortem of the 2012 Mets’ second half in an attempt to discover the ugly specifics of last year’s second half swoon. What we found was interesting in that the culprit was not the offensive approach per se, but rather the downward spiral was precipitated by some hideous pitching performances by both our starters and bullpen alike. At the time of...

d’Arnaud or Plawecki?

At the beginning of spring training, the question of whether Travis d’Arnaud or Kevin Plawecki was the catching prospect the Mets should hold onto was no question. Travis d’Arnaud was the clear catcher of the future for the New York Mets. However, the play of Kevin Plawecki and the injury history of Travis d’Arnaud has raised an issue for the organization: Which catcher is...

Matt Harvey Is Dating SI Swimsuit Model Anne V

New York Mets’ pitcher Matt Harvey is having a great year. Already dominating the National League with a 5-0 reco…

Can Ike Achieve The Strikeout Cycle

I want Ike to one day attempt the Strikeout Cycle. So that would be a strikeout looking, swinging, check swing strikeout & the K 2-3 putout — Matthew Falkenbury (@dailystache) May 25, 2013 As Ike Davis continues to work his way from major part of the Mets rebuild to major pain in the ass for the team and fans, things are looking bleak for him. The hits are just not there...

So Where Are All Those Moneyball Players?

Adam Rubin hits on the one question many Met fans are now asking themselves after three seasons under Sandy Alderson. In a post to ESPN New York, Adam writes: Forget Ike Davis’ struggles for a second. Forget even the payroll constraints, which is asking a lot to look past. Here’s one question that rarely gets asked: Where are the Moneyball players with the Mets? And by that...

Mets Have Opportunity To Soar To New Heights

Well, sort of. This past Friday the Miami Marlins designated former-Met Jon Rauch for assignment and in the past 24 hours there have been conflicting reports regarding his potential release. If talk of his release is accurate, the Mets should be biting. As my colleague Ed Leyro pointed out back in February, this Mets ballclub doesn’t quite measure up in comparison to last year...
