Jon Niese Has Gone From Unreliable To Untouchable

Sometimes it is better to hold a pat hand, which is what the Mets have done with Jonathan Niese over the past few years. More than a few times we heard Niese’s name mentioned in a possible trade. Whom the Mets would have received in return would not have lifted them from their 2007-2011 funk. At least, not as much as Niese is lifting them now. He’s 7-3 after last night’s 11...

A Niese way to hit the midway point for the Mets

With a lopsided victory Tuesday night over the defending division champs, the New York Mets have officially hit the season’s midway point in style.  The team now sits seven games over .500 (44-37) in sole possession of second place in the NL East, just 3 1/2 games behind the upstart Washington Nationals. While most of the pundits picked the Phils to win the division back before...

Phillies Drop Sixth Straight; Three-Hit by Niese and Mets in 11-1 Loss

The struggles continued tonight for Phillies starting pitching and the team in general. It's getting more and more frustrating to say the least, and it hasn't been a fun ride over the past week with the Phillies losing more and more games.  I know I typically write out a game story, but this would have been the worst of the season, so instead of that, here are the scoring...

Game Preview: Phillies @ Mets

The Mets look to get back on the winning page today as they open up a three game set against the Phillies in Citi Field. If records for July were held constant, this three game set, and the next (Cubs) will be the only 6 games the Mets will play against teams below .500. Anyway, the Phillies will send out Vance Worley today to take on Jon Niese. Niese is 6-3 on the season with a...
