New York Mets
The Phillies torched Jeremy Hefner and racked up 11 runs in the first three innings on their way to a 13-8 win over the Mets tonight at Citi Field.
Hefner was rocked for eight runs in two-plus innings before being pulled in the third before registering an out. he allowed 10 hits including a home run to Domonic Brown. The Phillies have toasted Hefner throughout his career.
Greg Burke and Josh Edgin provided no relief and combined to allow another 5 Philly runs.
The Mets showed some fight and did score 8 runs, including home runs from Marlon Byrd and Davis Wright, but they never really had a chance in this one.
Defensively, the Mets were awful tonight Omar Quintanilla committed two errors, Byrd added a third, and Kirk Nieuwenhuis misplayed three fly balls that could have been outs rather than hits.
Considering how dominant Hefner has been with Anthony Recker behind the plate, I was shocked to see John Buck get the nod.
The Mets continue their three game series tomorrow at 1:10 PM, wit...

AROUND THE WEB
Since May 26, the Mets are third in the majors with a 3.18 (151 earned runs/427.0 innings) team ERA and there’s a good reason for that positive development, his name, Jeremy Hefner.
Since June 4, Jeremy Hefner leads the majors with a 1.76 ERA (10 earned runs/51.0 innings) over eight starts. Pittsburgh’s Francisco Liriano is second with a 1.89 ERA.
Hefner has allowed two earned...
Outside of phenom Matt Harvey, starting pitching has not been the New York Mets’ strong suit in 2013. From Aaron Laffey to Shaun Marcum, nobody has been anywhere near as consistently reliable as Harvey has. This poses a lot of questions as to who will start Opening Day next year, or in the games following for that matter. Here’s my prediction for just that.
1. Matt Harvey...
Jeremy Hefner takes the mound as the Mets look to avoid their annual post-All Star Break slide into oblivion tonight against the Philadelphia Phillies.

Stephanie was in an optimistic mood after last night’s game, believe it or not, and it wasn’t due to the post-game Nas concert… This is her first full-length piece that isn’t a Player of the Week, enjoy her collection of thoughts after the game and play nice in the comments… (Satish R.)

Well, so much for that fast start out of the second-half gate for the New York Mets.
That great ERA Jeremy Hefner was sporting going into the game? Not so much anymore. The Phillies nailed him for eight runs on ten hits. The carnage was accumulated over 63 pitches, 38 of them in the first inning.

Whether he stays with the Mets for the duration of the season (perhaps maybe even beyond) or being part of deal to bring in some prospects, David Aardsma has once again become a valued commodity in the major leagues.
Aardsma put together another fine outing in the Mets’ 13-8 loss to the Philadelphia Phillies on Friday night. While Jeremy Hefner struggled mightily on this night...
The Phillies bashed their way to a huge win on Friday, clubbing out 13 runs on 15 hits en route to a 13-8 win in their series opener against the Marlins. The Phillies are now over .500 for the first time since early June.

I asked my writers who they thought was the biggest surprise for the Mets in the first half, and one of the benefits of having 25-35 active writers is that it gives me a good well-rounded sense of where the Mets fan base is on these roundtable questions I like to do.
As expected there were some varied answers, and few added comments as well. Here is what we came up with.
The Mets return from being the center of the baseball universe today and welcome the Phillies to town as they kick off the second half. Before the half, the Mets were doing pretty good. Since the Eric Young Jr. acquisition the team has been playing with a different level of energy. This has translated into wins on the road, so here’s hoping the Mets can start turning that into...
