The Mets finally, FINALLY return home tonight…but it’s against the Braves. In case you missed yesterday’s game, Dillon Gee was fantastic shutting down the Twins over 7.2 innings and the Mets offense was able to put some runs on the board to support him. While the Mets have been away for the last 11 games, the Braves have been caught up in a rivalry with the Nationals regarding plunking each others players. Tonight Brandon Beachy starts for the Bravos as he goes up against Zack Wheeler (Happy Wheeler Day!). Zack Wheeler is 5-2 with a 3.43 ERA over 11 starts and 63.0 innings of work. In his last two starts, he’s pitched 12.1 innings, allowed 2 ER and struck out 16 batters, most in his last start where he struck out 12 over 6. He has had two very different starts against the Braves. In his major league debut, he held the Braves scoreless over 6.0 innings and in his second start, he allowed 4 runs, 3 earned, over 6 innings. The Braves have the following numbers against Wheeler: Freeman ...

Where Was Wheeler In '98 & '99?

Wheeler Wins His Sixth and Mets Blast Two Homers To Beat The Braves 5-3

Zack Wheeler picked up his sixth win of the season and the Mets blasted two home runs as they opened up their homestand with a 5-3 win over the Atlanta Braves at Citi Field. Wheeler was a different pitcher than we saw in his last start and just focused on pitching his game rather than trying to strike everyone out. The result was a solid effort as he held the Braves potent offense...

Mets Wheeler Dazzles Braves Again

Errors cost the Atlanta Braves on Tuesday night as they were beaten by the New York Mets and Zack Wheeler, 5-3.  It started in the 1st inning with Eric Young Jr. at the plate.  It looked like he would be thrown out to end the inning, but a throwing error allowed Young to reach base.  He later scored when Ike Davis singled to right field. It was an error that led to Mets runs in...

Dillon Gee Has A 2.27 ERA In His Last 15 Starts

I read a comment this morning in our threads from one reader asking another why he left out Gee in his projected 2014 rotation. In addition to MMO, I spend a lot of time reading comment threads at MetsBlog and on other Mets Forums and I see that a lot. Mostly I see future Mets rotation projections looking a lot like this: Matt Harvey Noah Syndergaard Zack Wheeler Jon Niese Rafael...

Is Lagares An Everyday Center Fielder? Duh… I’ll Give You Juan Answer…

YES!!! Mets righthander Dillon Gee credits his improved performance to his defense because he doesn’t have to be afraid to pitch to contact, he especially singles out Juan Lagares. “It gives you confidence to keep attacking because you know you’ve got guys out there that are playing hard and making all the plays for you,” Gee said. ”Juan tracks down everything out there...

Game Preview: Mets @ Twins

The Mets finally finish a long, long road trip on the West Coast with a make up game in Minnesota today. Ok, so Minnesota isn’t on the West Coast, but it’s in a different time zone so whatever. Anyway, in case you forgot, at the start of the season the Mets rolled into snowy Minnesota and Colorado thus causing the hectic schedule they are experiencing now. In other news, d...

Mets-Twins Preview

The New York Mets are in the midst of another disappointing season, but they've experienced some success in interleague games. While hoping to get another strong outing from Dillon Gee, the visiting Mets will try to earn another win over an AL opponent in Monday's makeup game against the Minnesota Twins. The Mets (56-66), likely headed for a fifth straight losing season...

Geebyrd

My favorite part of Monday's make up game against the Twins was Gary Cohen going absolutely insane over an egregious bit of hometown scoring. Daniel Murphy clearly erred on a Clete Thomas grounder when he threw it to Oshkosh. But apparently the official scorer was Clete Thomas' mom because Clete was awarded a hit on the play. Cohen turned into Hawk Harrelson, forcing Keith...
