BEST OF MAXIM
Right hander Chris Young started for the New York Mets on Sunday afternoon, allowing just three runs — two earned — on nine hits over seven innings of work, though, he was rewarded with a loss:

The Mets are on a real streak kick. They got swept. Then they swept. Then they got swept again. Anyway, the Mets hope the pendulum swings back in their favor tonight as they start a series with the Baltimore Orioles...
The hits just keep on coming for Jason Bay, and not in a good way. Yesterday, Terry Collins spoke to reporters before the game and said, ”I’m really worried about him”. Bay will be seeing a doctor today and the team will learn if he indeed suffered another concussion, his second in two years. When asked about the possibility of Bay missing the rest of the season, Collins...
Another rough night In Binghamton…
Pawtucket 6, Buffalo 1
Sunday was the final game of the four-game set, and the end result was no different from the first three. The Bisons fell 6-1 to the PawSox, drifting eight games behind in the divisional race heading into an 8-game road trip to Norfolk and Durham.
Inefficient starting pitching doomed the Herd this weekend, and the case was...
Three pigeons decided to join New York Mets third baseman David Wright in the field during the eighth inning of Sunday's game at Citi Field against the Cincinnati Reds.

Mets broadcasters seemed to think that the pigeons might be spying on Wright, but in reality they simply seemed to be looking for food, albeit in an unusual place...
By no measure can we say that that Ike Davis is back just yet. I think he’d have to be way north of the interstate to back up that claim. However, not anymore can we say he is a lost cause and that he has to be shuffled off to Buffalo, because it appears that Davis is starting to get locked in at the plate and emerging from his deep slump.
Davis is on a six-game hitting streak...
After a disappointing loss last night, and losing Jason Bay for the 2nd time this season, the Mets and Reds will face off again for game 2 of this weekend series. The Mets will look to rebound and continue their winning ways from Tampa as they look to tie up the series.
Tonight’s pitching matchup features Jon Niese (4-2, 3.69 ERA) and Homer Bailey (4-4, 4.35 ERA). Niese is...
NEW YORK -- Immediately after R.A. Dickey completed his latest masterpiece Monday night, the Citi Field scoreboard flashed a picture of Dickey along with the phrase "Really Awesome." "Really Absurd" might be the better phrase. Dickey continued a dynamic run of pitching that almost defies description Monday by throwing his second straight one-hitter to lead...
One of the roots of Jason Bay's lack of production in New York is that he has simply been unable to stay healthy. Bay hurt himself again in the second inning of the Mets' 7-3 loss Friday to the Reds, suffering a concussion while tumbling into the left-field wall in an attempt to field Jay Bruce's inside-the-park home run. The Mets indicated that they will place Bay...
Baffling the League
Tonight, the New York Mets beat the Baltimore Orioles by a score of 4-0, but the real talk is of the amazing story of R.A. Dickey. With his one-hit shut-out, Dickey became the first MLB pitcher to throw back-to-back one-hitters since Dave Stieb, of the Toronto Blue Jays, completed the feat in 1988. The accomplishment had not been done in the National League since...
R.A. Dickey became the first major league pitcher in 24 years to throw consecutive one-hitters and Ike Davis hit a grand slam to lead the New York Mets past the Baltimore Orioles 5-0 on Monday night.
Coming off a one-hit gem at Tampa Bay last Wednesday, the knuckleballer struck out a career-high 13 and allowed only Wilson Betemit's clean single in the fifth inning.
REO Speedwagon played Citi Field following the Mets / Reds game last night. We've seen REO many, many times. The crowd is not throwing bottles and starting brawls. And for the 2-3k who stayed for the...

NEW YORK -- Jon Niese had appeared to right himself quickly in the first inning Saturday night, retiring two of the Cincinnati Reds' toughest hitters after allowing a pair of leadoff singles. The New York Mets starter got ahead of Jay Bruce 0-2, then opted for a curveball. Suddenly, Niese was no longer righting himself or getting ahead, as Bruce smacked the hanging curve...
Buffalo Bisons (37-32, 5 GB)
-Despite being five games over .500 the Bisons are still five games out of the division with three teams in front of them. Buffalo is still teetering on that edge of either catching up to the lead back or falling back to their I-90 foes in Rochester and Syracuse who are at least 4 1/2 games behind Buffalo entering today.
-The team is in a must-win situation...
