Found September 03, 2013 on Mets Merized Online:
“Ike Davis made his way around the clubhouse offering farewells on Monday,” writes Adam Rubin of ESPN New York. Davis will miss the rest of the season with a strained right oblique, and as you can read below, probably has played his last game as a Met…   Ya’ll take care now, Ike… It’s been a real right pleasure knowin’ ya… Original Post 9/1 After leaving tonight’s game with an apparent strained right oblique, Terry Collins told reporters that he expects Ike Davis to miss the remainder of the season. Davis injured himself while swinging on a sacrifice fly in the third inning. He grimaced as he clutched his side, and was replaced by Lucas Duda. Oblique injuries usually take about a month or longer to heal so Collins realized Davis was likely done for the season once it was confirmed this was an oblique strain. The timing couldn’t have been worse for Davis who was still trying to establish himself as a keeper while the Mets now look toward 2014. Once again, the month of September has ...

The Case to Extend Dillon Gee

The New York Mets organization won’t fondly look upon August 2013 for years to come. The team struggled to gain any traction following the All-Star Break, lost star pitcher Matt Harvey for the remainder of the season (and potentially most of 2014), and saw both David Wright and Ike Davis suffer injuries that threatened or completed their seasons. Baseball can be a unique world...

The Good, The Bad and The Murphy

Daniel Murphy made his major league debut on August 2, 2008, which makes him the second-longest tenured position player on the Mets behind David Wright.  Whereas David Wright is beloved by just about the entire Mets fan base, those same fans aren’t as kind to Daniel Murphy. Many fans (myself included) love the guy, and would have no problem with him becoming part of the team...

Mets Minors: Top Underrated Pitchers In The System

With pitchers Matt Harvey, Zack Wheeler, and Noah Syndergaard rising through the minor leagues and dominating along the way, the hype surrounding those at the top has blocked out some of the performances of lesser-known prospects, even with a fanbase as critical and attentive as the Mets’. Last week, Vinny took a look at some of the most underrated hitters in the Met system. Let’s...

Daisuke Matsuzaka Sounds Ready for Mets to Cut Him, But Manager Terry Collins Says Pitcher May Get Another Try

Daisuke Matsuzaka knows his stat line with the Mets, and he knows what Freddie Freeman‘s three-run bomb on Monday looked like. That’s why he appeared to be ready to bid adieu to his third — and quite possibly final — major league team after lasting just three innings on Labor Day. But Mets manager Terry Collins sounded strangely optimistic after Matsuzaka gave up six runs...

How long until we learn Matt Harvey is not having surgery, opting for PRP instead?

When one tears their ulnar collateral ligament, one has 2 options. Do nothing or have Tommy John surgery. If you are a pitcher -- you have one option: Have Tommy John surgery. Why? Because while you may be able to stabilize and live pain cannot complete the overhead motion necessary with enough strength to pitch/throw without it. But now...Matt may have a legitimate second...

Time Is A Factor

At least the Mets had the decency to lose on Tuesday in 2:42. Monday's loss took three days to complete. Never did I think witnessing Carlos Torres lose a start would be a pleasure to watch. But the Mets 3-1 loss, which would normally agitate me because the Mets once again can't score and preserve a very good pitching performance, seemed like being handed a gallon of water...


Bad enough ESPN chooses the Mets and the Nationals for a Sunday night game when the Mets have to play a day game in Atlanta the next day at 1:10 ET ... abandoning all common sense to adhere to rules about picking games (ESPN apparently had three games to choose from for this Sunday and the other two matchups were either just as bad or worse.) Bad enough I gotta sit through ESPN...
