BEST OF MAXIM
Should the Mets trade Jonathon Niese?
I don’t know why MetsBlog keeps putting this out there every month, but the answer is the same as it’s always been and that is NO.
I just don’t understand this fascination they have with this silly and somewhat ignorant discussion. If the goal is to build from within, than why would you ever consider trading one of your homegrown pitchers...
Mets fans have watched Jonathon Niese mature right before their eyes. After signing a five year contract at the beginning of the season, Niese has become not only on the of the most consistent pitchers in the Mets rotation, but one of the most consistent in the league.
Despite the new contract, Niese’s future with the team is in question. In arguably the most intriguing off...

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...
It’s been a while since we’ve seen the New York Mets play this well and at the end of the day, it might turn out that this doesn’t mean very much, but it’s still nice to see them at least appear to be heading in the right direction.
The Mets have had a very lousy season overall but they’ve won six of their last seven games and have a real chance to head into the offseason...
On a night when the Braves honored future hall-of-famer Chipper Jones and the state’s governor declared it ‘Chipper Jones Day’ in Georgia, the New York Mets spoiled the evening with a 3-1 victory on Friday night. Or. Should I say, Lucas Duda spoiled the night with a three-run bomb to give NY a lead they would not relinquish.
OH DUDA DAY: With the Mets trailing 1-0 in the...
The 2012 New York Mets season will not include any postseason action and given how they played, it could still be a couple more years before we see them playing meaningful October baseball. However, the Mets have won six of their last seven – tying their best streak of the season – and they have a chance to end their season on a high with a few more wins.
The Mets have six more...
Lucas Duda's three-run homer in the seventh gave New York the lead, Jonathon Niese pitched seven strong innings for his third straight win and the Mets beat Tim Hudson and the Braves 3-1 on Friday night.
The Braves, who have wrapped up at least a wild-card berth, began the night four games behind the Nationals in the NL East. Atlanta has only five games remaining in the regular...
"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...
Despite facing a four-game deficit in the NL East with six to play, the Atlanta Braves are still focused on a division crown.
A favorable schedule makes this somewhat far-fetched goal seem possible.
The Braves look to beat the New York Mets for the 11th time in 12 games in Friday night's opener at Turner Field.
Atlanta (91-65) secured at the very least the league's top...
