The New York Mets combined a solid start by Jon Niese with a clutch bomb by Lucas Duda to crash Chipper Jones’ farewell party and beat the Atlanta Braves by the score of 3-1 on Friday night.
Jon Niese made his final start of the season and aside from a solo home run to Freddie Freeman, the young southpaw pitched a solid seven innings, allowing just one run on fours hits, three...
How’s that for irony?
Take that Larry!
On the night when the Atlanta Braves honored their iconic hitter who defined their success from the 90’s through the turn of the century, it was the Mets who ultimately played spoiler on Chipper Jones’ big farewell night.
It was only fitting that the Mets ruined the feel-good atmosphere in Atlanta on this night considering all the times...
New York Mets legend (and current broadcaster) Keith Hernandez shaved off his iconic mustache before Thursday's game at Citi Field against the Pittsburgh Pirates.
Despite pleas of Mets fans not to shave the 'stache, Hernandez decided to go through with it. In honor of the historic occasion, Hernandez and the Schick razor company made a joint $10,000 donation to a Jacqueline...
ATLANTA -- Lucas Duda spoiled Chipper Jones' big night with a three-run home run in the seventh inning, and the New York Mets beat the Atlanta Braves 3-1 Friday at Turner Field. The Braves had honored Jones in a pregame ceremony, showering him with tributes and gifts, including dismantling and installing his clubhouse locker in his new house. Despite all the emotion running...
It was about as ugly as a record-breaking hit can be. David Wright did not become the New York Mets' all-time hits leader with a booming home run or even a line-drive single. Instead, Wright finally passed Ed Kranepool with his 1,419th hit on a bleeder down the third-base line, which Pittsburgh's Pedro Alvarez could not glove in a 6-0 Mets victory. Wright later added a...

If you go to the Free Agent Leaderboards, you’ll see Michael Bourn‘s name at the top, as the sort for the list is set to descending 2012 WAR, and Bourn has the highest WAR this season of any upcoming free agent at +6.1. We can pretty much guarantee that Bourn isn’t going to sign the largest contract this winter, though, as free agent value isn’t simply based on a player’s...

"I think I had a tear planted in the corner of my eye pretty much the whole night." - Larry Jones
Yeah well, that would explain your 0 for 4 on Friday.Maybe we missed the boat on Larry. He once said that he thrived on fans chanting his given name at Shea Stadium. Maybe the Mets should have given him paintings every game. Think about it, Shea was wild for Larry, he hit...
You know....sometimes it's hard to describe "Getting Old". There isn't really a "Technical" definition of it and for some people, there are different milestones, or signs that yeah, maybe you are getting old.
For me, it was sitting in the stands at Turner Field Friday night to witness the "Retirement" ceremony for Atlanta Braves all-star Chipper...
It looks like the desperate pleas from Mets fans just wasn’t enough. In a day that will live in soup strainer infamy, New York Mets legend Keith Hernandez and current SNY analyst shaved his iconic mustache on Thursday in an event at Citi Field that featured pomp, circumstance and, uh, a dusting of mustache clippings [...]
Ladies and gentlemen, Spiderman has entered the building. In Thursday's game between the Mets and Pirates, New York's Mike Baxter lauched a deep fly towards the wall in right at Citi Field for what looked to be a sure game-tying home run. Pittsburgh right fielder Travis Snider had other ideas. Snider scaled the wall, leaned over while maintaining his place atop the fence...
At 11:45 today. We will say Goodbye to the greatest facial hair that ever was grown in professional sports. I will be there with this sign to pay my respects. I hope to see you at the game as we watch RA Dickey go for his 20th win, say bye to Citi Field for the 2012 season and move on into the future with a cleanly shaved Keith Hernandez. Lets Go Mets!
