Harvey Might Be The Ace Up Mets’ Sleeve

There is a likable quality to Matt Harvey having nothing to do with his pitching. He speaks with confidence that doesn’t border arrogance. He has a big time arm without the big time attitude. He’s attentive to your questions, and thoughtful and respectful with his answers. Harvey has a big time future, but doesn’t come across as a big timer. The tip-off is he carries his...

Put On Your Kevlar

I live by a very strict rule, and that's this: "Nobody cares about your fantasy team." I think that in eight years of blogging I've ... maybe ... mentioned a fantasy team of mine once or twice. There really is no reason for you to care about who is on my fantasy team and how they're doing. So I never mention them, even though I'm sure many of you who are...

Dillon Gee Makes His Comeback This Afternoon With No Fears

The cold didn’t bother Matt Harvey last night, but the Mets will pay close attention this afternoon to Dillon Gee if the temperatures drop during his start against the San Diego Padres. In the quest of rooting for good stories, Gee is up there in his attempt to come back from emergency surgery to repair a blocked artery in his shoulder that caused his right hand to go numb...

What’s To Become Of Jordany Valdespin Now?

First off, I’d like to start this post by congratulating Collin Cowgill. The man had a great Spring Training and a smashing Mets  debut. He deserves to be a part of the Mets outfield in 2013. I look forward to watching him. “It’s a special day. My first time being in an Opening Day lineup. A lot of jitters but it’s exciting. The fans were unbelievable. Beautiful day for...

Minor League Update: Games of Monday, April 1 by Zach Mortimer

Collin Cowgill made a splash in his Mets debut, hitting the team`s first Opening Day grand slam since 1995.

Will Marcum Be Healthy This Year?

Shawn Marcum was going to be a stealth signing for the Mets. He was going to come in and be the veteran right hander that Chris Young had been for this franchise but maybe even a whole lot more. A career marked by fits and starts in both Toronto and Milwaukee, he was ready to take his one year deal and help the Mets pitching staff be a strong one. After what we have seen from Jon...

I Need More Cowgill

So much for all the talk about how the Mets had such a weak outfield going into the start of the year. Leadoff man Collin Cowgill went 2-5 with a double & a grand slam and veteran Marlon Byrd went 2-5 with 2 singles, driving in a run on both.Aside from Cowgill and Byrd, four other Mets had a multi hit game against the Padres - Daniel Murphy, John Buck, Ruben Tejada and pitcher...

A few thoughts on Opening Day and this season

Would you have believed me in February if I told you the Mets would win Opening Day 11-2 because of guys like Collin Cowgill, Marlon Byrd, and John Buck? Did you think at that time in February that a Mets center fielder would leadoff on Opening Day and hit a double and a grand slam? Maybe you did… But if you did, you probably expected your Opening Day center fielder to be Michael...
