Mets Merized Online:
Mets outfielder Scott Hairston has just hit for the cycle tonight in Colorado. He is the 10th Mets player to record a cycle in team history and the first to accomplish the feat since Jose Reyes did it on June 21, 2006 against the Cincinnati Reds.
Hairston started things off with a single in the second inning, a home run in the fourth, a triple in the fifth inning and finally a double in the top of the sixth inning.
Congratulations to Scott!

When Scott Hairston went into the off-season after his first year with the Mets last season, the club was not shy regarding its willingness to bring him ba
During blogger day at Citi Field on Wednesday, the Daily Stache spoke to Hairston regarding his decision to re-sign with the Mets and also what it means to lose a guy like Jason Bay to the disabled list.

Dillon Gee took the hill to square off against the Rockies rookie hurler Guillermo Moscoso in the second game of the three game set in the Mile High City. Gee, coming off an awful start, came to play tonight, hurling seven frames allowing four runs (3 earned) on seven hits while punching out seven, picking up his second win of the year. Moscoso however didn’t enjoy the...
Baseball America’s Prospect Hot Sheet for the period April 20-26 has Mets top prospect RHP Matt Harvey ranked #6 and 3B Wilmer Flores gets an honorable mention.
Regarding Flores BA Writes:
For as long as he’s been around, it’s easy to forget that Wilmer Flores is still just a 20-year-old in the high Class A Florida State League. Now playing third base for the Mets,...
Jon Niese gave the Mets seven strong innings today and Captain Kirk put the exclamation point on a rally in the ninth for a Mets win this afternoon, 3-2.
Run support is key for starters, and for a while, it looked like today would be another wasted strong start by a Mets starter. Jon Niese started and pitched for seven effective innings, allowing only 4 hits and 2 ER over...
Ok, I’ve reached into the Ask Petey mailbag, but since I was tightly gripping a Labatt’s Blue, I only managed to pull out two questions. Oh well, I’ll try to do better next time. Or I could make up a few questions from imaginary readers….hmmmm maybe I will. Desperate times call for desperate measures.
Petey: Our first Mets minor league mailbag question comes from little...
Jon Matlack’s career record of 125-126 may be as mediocre as you can get, but Matlack was a much, much better than average major league pitcher. In fact, he was one of the very finest lefthanded pitchers ever developed by the Mets’ organization. His other career marks – 3.18 lifetime ERA (better than Steve Carlton, who was considered the best lefty of his generation), 97 complete...
Mets bounce back strong with hot sticks to beat the Rockies 7-5. The Blob wants to enjoy the win and the rest of Saturday night with a Happy Nightcap, and keep this brief. The Mets have done it at the plate in the first 2 games in Colorado putting up 16 runs. The Mets face the 206 year old lefty Jamie Moyerthuselah in the rubber match while the Mets have Santana on the hill. The Blob likes out
The New York Mets allowed a total of 4 runs against the Miami Marlins in their sweep of the floundering fish this week. Tonight, the club multiplied that 4-run total by 4 and added 3, just for good measure.The New York Mets (11-9) dropped the series opener against the Colorado Rockies (10-9) 19-8 tonight behind atrocious pitching and a few defensive mishaps. After the Mets jumped...
As their first manager, Casey Stengel, might have said: Simply Amazin'.
The New York Mets are the subject of a three-day academic conference taking place at Hofstra University.
The conference takes a look at the team's 50-year history in New York. The Mets were created just four years after the Brooklyn Dodgers and New York Giants fled to California in 1958.
Scott Hairston of the Mets hit for the cycle last night, and he did it by the end of the sixth inning. That's pretty impressive. What else is pretty impressive is that Hairston's Mets lost the game....18-9. The last team to lose when they had a player who hit for the cycle was when Kelly Johnson hit for the cycle in July 2010, and the Diamondbacks lost 7-4 to the Giants...
