New York Mets
Day-to-day is exactly how it sounds, which means the Mets aren’t ready to announce David Wright’s Opening Day status.
Wright has been moving cautiously in trying to come back from a strained left intercostal muscle. He’s been fielding and hitting off a tee, which is ahead of what was originally thought.
WRIGHT: Making progress.
Batting practice followed by games are the next steps.
“We’re looking at the middle of next week for possible at-bats as we head into next weekend,’’ manager Terry Collins told reporters. “Once again, I’m going to be very cautious. This guy is a huge piece. The last thing we need to do is to try to tell him he needs to rush or he needs to hurry. But we’ll see where he is in the middle of next week.’’
If Wright hits without pain this week, say Wednesday, the Mets will try to get him in a minor league game before the team breaks camp this Saturday. The Mets will not risk playing him in a major league game because if there is a setback going on the disabled list wo
BEST OF MAXIM
Johan Santana is entering the final year of his 138 million dollar deal he signed with the Mets back in the 2008 off-season.
For every season he has been apart of the Mets, outside of the first one, he has had to head to the DL. For this last season, his DL trip will be at the start of the season instead of his normal DL trip at the end of the season. In fact, one of the years he...
Murphy and Wright are staring the DL in the face due to intercostal injuries.
It’s starting to look more and more like Daniel Murphy will begin the 2013 season on the disabled list. Terry Collins had recently stated that if Murphy didn’t play in a major league level tune-up by this coming weekend, that he didn’t think he would be ready for the Opening Day. There is virtually...
Ahh, the luck of the Irish…
According to Newsday’s Marc Carig, second baseman Daniel Murphy played five innings at second base today, going 1-for-2 at the plate with a walk in a minor league game. It was his first appearance at the plate this spring since straining his intercostal just over a month ago.
“It felt good, it felt really good,” Murphy said afterward. “This...
For the last several years, David Wright has been the leader of the New York Mets. The Mets decided to finally make it official, naming the star third baseman the fourth captain in team history, MetsBlog.com reports. Wright, who just signed an eight year contract in the offseason, becomes the first team captain for the [...]

HOW MUCH IS SANTANA CAUSE OF HIS OWN PROBLEMS?
When Johan Santana said he doesn’t know when he will pitch again, it isn’t inconceivable it could be never.
Santana’s left shoulder is not getting better and it isn’t unfair to wonder if the prideful or stubborn lefthander – take your pick – may have committed career suicide on March 3, a quiet Sunday that turned into one...
The Mets have announced that Johan Santana will not break camp with the Mets when the team heads north next weekend. Santana has still not been able to pitch off a mound and only today will begin long-tossing, albeit from a distance of just 90 feet.
As much as I would like to see Santana tantalize hitters at Citi Field with his signature change-up, I wouldn’t mind if he took...
The 2013 All-World Baseball Classic team was announced Wednesday, and the squad is riddled with Mets both current and former alike.
Of course “Captain America” aka David Wright, who’s .438 batting average and 10 RBIs earned him the nickname made the team. Wright was also the only American to make the cut.
From the reigning champion Dominican Republic, former Met spark plug...
As expected, New York Mets lefty Johan Santana will start the season on the disabled list while he works to strengthen his pitching shoulder.
Mets manager Terry Collins announced the plan Friday before a game against the Miami Marlins. The 33-year-old Santana hasn't pitched in a spring training game this year
''He's not going to open with us,'' Collins said...
It’s long been said that sequels are rarely ever as good as the original. It’s an undeniable truth. Of course there are exceptions like The Empire Strikes Back or The Godfather: Part Two, but for the most part sequels genuinely suck, to put it bluntly.
No-Han was everything any Met fan could have ever hoped for last season and when it happened there wasn’t a dry eye in the...
Interesting April? That is for sure.
Expectations are clearly low for the Mets this year. However, they were also low last year, and the team gave fans at least three months of a season before falling off a cliff. Yes, on paper this team doesn’t look good, and they have been hampered by an astonishing number of injuries this Spring. However, this is baseball, and anything can happen...
Clayton – Collin Cowgill is the biggest winner. The guy has yet to see a single pitch for the Mets in the regular season and he already has the number and comparison to a Mets great, not to mention most likely a starting outfield job. My loser is Johan Santana. It could have just as easily been Captain Kirk or Frank Francisco, but when R.A. Dickey was traded, everyone in the baseball...
