New York Mets
Before last night’s game, Terry Collins told reporters that reliever Josh Edgin would make one more relief appearance this season before being shutdown for the season.
With the Mets already being pounded 11-1 by the Phillies, Edgin came on to relieve an ineffective Jeurys Familia in the ninth inning with the bases loaded. He plunks Chase Utley to force home a run, and then BOOM! A grand slam by Ryan Howard!
This comes on the heels of Wednesday night’s loss to the Phillies who came back to beat Edgin in the ninth after he coughed up a game winning two-run homer to Ryan Howard.
It was a horrible pitch and Edgin is the first to admit it. He called that fastball Howard crushed “a meatball,’’ and it cost Matt Harvey a victory.
Even so, Edgin has been one of the few encouraging notes out of an otherwise negative bullpen this summer and had a streak of 16 straight scoreless appearances snapped last night. One stinker and 16 good games is a good ratio.

In terms of roster moves, Ike Davis may not be the only Met discussed in deals this off-season.. But Ike wanted to set something straight after a report suggested the Mets were concerned about his nightlife.

Matt Harvey missed a win last night because umpire Bob Davidson called a pitch by rookie Josh Edgin to veteran Chase Utley that was a fraction of an inch off the plate a ball. It was the correct call but it could have gone either way. The pitch resulted in a walk and the next batter hit the game-winning two-run homer. It was a 3-2 count and if it was called a strike the game would...

Continuing the series of Mets hypothetical trades, the Mets largest need is in regards to the outfield, both defensively and offensively. The Mets could look for a team that may be struggling, and looking to rebuild. Oh, hello Cleveland Indians I didn’t see you there.
The Indians are a team struggling, with a few rising everyday players but struggling at other positions. What...
Has anyone been listening to Mike Francesa absolutely kill the Mets on WFAN lately? Most likely many of you have, since Francesa garners a large audience, and rightfully so.
He is a knowledgeable sports personality that commands respect based on his reputation. But seriously, talk about something other than degrading the Mets.
This whole past week, Francesa has been...
The Miami Marlins are in for the weekend, and with them comes Jose Reyes. Now that the season is dwindling down to a precious few games, I ask: Would the Mets season been significantly different had they re-signed Reyes?
I don’t see how that is possible after last night.
With the way the Mets are heading, by the time they are competitive again Reyes will be on the downside of...

I never thought I’d say this, but thank goodness I was at the Yankee game tonight.
I didn’t have to suffer through the nine innings the Mets forced our fan nation to endure this evening. Nevertheless, tonight’s mess must be reviewed.

NEW YORK -- The New York Mets' march of misery continued at Citi Field on Thursday night, quickly hitting a new low against the resurgent Philadelphia Phillies.

They bookended that with a seven-run ninth inning, including a grand slam...

It has been a second half to forget for the Mets, and although they are out of playoff contention, they can still use the last few games of the season to play young guys, and possibly knock another team out of playoff contention.
