Found August 20, 2012 on 213 Miles From Shea:

From a mile high to Flushing, Queens, Colorado is coming to town. The Mets are coming back from a six game road trip in which they went 2-4, the same record as their last home stand. R.A. Dickey gets the start for the Mets today as he takes on Alex White. Dickey is 15-4 over 168.1 innings of work with an ERA of 2.89. Dickey had a good stretch of starts get interrupted last time out as he allowed 5 ER over 6 innings and 10 hits against the Reds. Last year he had one start against the Rox where he allowed 5 ER over 6.1 innings. The Rockies have the following stats against Dickey:

Hernandez: 0-4
Fowler: 2-4
(and that’s it, seriously)

Alex White is 2-6 over 14 starts and 69.0 innings with an ERA of 5.74. In his last four starts he has an ERA of 3.63 in that very interesting set up that the Rockies have. One start was 5.1 innings, the others were 4.0. In his young career he has never faced the Mets and the only person on the Mets to see him is Torres (0-2).

Let’s Go Mets!

R.A. Dickey’s quest for 20 wins was not helped by Mets anemic offense

New York Mets starter, R.A. Dickey tossed seven innings allowing just one run on x hits while striking out x on Monday night, but his efforts were rewarded with a no-decision as the Mets, once again, struggled to put up runs lossing for the fifth time in their last seven games: After a Mike Baxter double, a intentional walk to David Wright, and a five-pitch walk to Daniel Murphy...

Collin McHugh Or Jenrry Mejia Could Replace Johan Santana On Thursday

Mazzoni Solid, But B-Mets Offense Absent In 4-0 Loss To Richmond

The Binghamton Mets batters were only able to squeak out three hits on Saturday night at NYSEG Stadium and in the process couldn’t plate any runs as the Richmond Flying Squirrels took game two of the series by a four to nothing tally. The B-Mets first recorded hit came in the bottom of the third by way of starting pitcher Cory Mazzoni.  Mazzoni, who went 1-for-2 in the game,...

Mets 101 Prospect Watch: Juan Lagares

One of the more troubling areas for the New York Mets to address is their outfield. The team’s outfield has struggled mightily this season, and that includes glimpses of the team’s prospects from AAA Buffalo, such as Lucas Duda and Kirk Nieuwenhuis. While Matt Den Dekker is a potential September call up for the Amazin’s, the team does have some interesting pieces in its lower...

Young starts strong, falls apart quickly in 6-2 loss to Rockies

Was Chris Young really perfect through five innings, or was I just imagining things? Young struck out the first four batters of the game and didn’t allow any baserunners until the top of the sixth, when D.J. LeMahieu rolled an infield single up the middle. One would hope that Young would shake off the hit and continue with his dominant outing, but hoping for those type of things...

Mets lose with Dickey on the mound. Offense a big Zero again

The Mets as usual these days had no offense last night. This against a team that has the worst ERA in the National league by over a run! Pathetic! The Rockies working with a 4 man rotation and a 9 man bullpen were able to keep the Mets in check and won 3-1. Dickey was taken out in the 7 inning for a pinch hitter and the Mets offense could do nothing against the Rockies bullpen. The Rockies had

Happy Birthday, Todd Helton; Time to call it a career

Denver, CO. The end of this season will mark the 20th in Colorado Rockies franchise history, and unfortunately will go down as one of their worst ever. After preseason aspirations of playing meaningful baseball well into August and September, this season has been full of awful pitching, poor defense, and a few injuries here and there. One of those injuries belongs to Todd Helton...

Rockies 6, Mets 2

Jhoulys Chacin made an impressive return from an extended absence and the Colorado Rockies backed him with a pair of sharp defensive plays, beating the New York Mets 6-2 Tuesday night. Chacin had not pitched in the majors since May 1 because of inflammation in his right shoulder. He came off the disabled list earlier in the day and held the Mets to one run and four hits in six innings...

Offense Struggles In 4-1 Bisons Loss

One night after beating the Pawtucket Red Sox in a squeaker at Fenway Park, the Buffalo offense struggled once again, losing 4-1. Jeurys Familia took the mound trying to build on his dominant performance in his last start against Lehigh Valley, when he tossed seven shutout innings, allowing only four hits and striking out eight. He kept the Bisons in the game, but it sure wasn...
