Robert Carson promoted by Mets, outfielder Juan Lagares could follow

The New York Mets may have had a day off the field yesterday, but that doesn’t mean that things behind the scenes are standing still.  On Sunday the team announced that it had recalled 24-year-old lefty Rob Carson from Las Vegas (AAA) of the Pacific Coast League and designated LHP Aaron Laffey for assignment.  The 6-4, 240-pounder was 1-0 with 1.17 ERA in eight games with the...

Nieuwenhuis Optioned To Vegas, Lagares To Make His MLB Debut

Juan Lagares Is Legit – (Photo by Gordon Donovan) Updated 2:30 PM Whatever I said below, it’s now official… Updated at 11:30 PM Outfield prospect Juan Lagares, who is tearing up the Pacific Coast League, likely will join the Mets as soon as Tuesday, baseball sources told ESPN New York.

Mets Announce Niese Has A Bruise, X-Rays Negative, Day To Day

Updated 8:30 PM The Mets announced that Jon Niese has a bruise, but that X-Rays were negative and are saying he is day-to-day. Good news, to say the least… Original Post Jon Niese was just removed from the game in the top of the third inning after being hit by a batted ball by Mark Ellis while trying to get out of it’s way. He dropped to the ground in pain, but left the field...

Josh Edgin Has Lost His Edge

What happened to the Josh Edgin who came up and immediately became one of the more reliable and dominant relievers out of our bullpen last year? As if his his 10.80 ERA and 1.97 WHIP in 10 appearances wasn’t bad enough, I took a quick glance at his splits and it really showed me how bad things really have gotten for Edgin since last season. Versus LH Batters – 368 Versus...

Lagares Promoted, Kirk Demoted, Niese Takes Hill: Mets Lineup V. Dodgers - April 23, 2013

The never ending Flushing Roller Coaster continues to make tight turns and rapid drops before making its ascent. In yet another move by the Mets, OF Kirk Nieuwenhuis was sent back down to AAA Las Vegas, and Juan Lagares was promoted to the big club. According to scouts, Lagares: "I like him. He's a very instinctive player. He runs the bases well. He gets out of the box. He always

Mets Card of the Week: Mystery Met Episode 3

OK, the first two episodes of Mystery Met were the equivalent of trivia spring training. I was just working on my proverbial fastball, and breaking off the occasional metaphorical curve. But I’m loose and limber now, and ready to go a full nine… So here’s the windup, and the pitch: Name the one-time Met pictured here, and you’ll win a 1964 PSA 7 Topps George Altman, plus...

I Hate To Be The Pessimist Here, But I Have Some Issues With The Whole Marcum Deal

Adam Rubin of ESPN New York (who else), posted the full details of the deal the Mets signed with Shaun Marcum. The one-year deal guarantees him $4 million as well knew, but here’s the breakdown of the other $4 million he can earn with incentives: – $250,000 apiece for reaching 120, 140, 160 and 170 innings. – $375,000 apiece for reaching 180 and 190 innings. – $500,0000 for...

The Birth Of El Dramático

I felt so good after last night’s game that I decided to write two posts. This begins my official campaign to nickname Jordany Valdespin. It’s a great feeling to hit your first home run of the season. That’s not enough for Valdespin though. He has to hit a walk-off home run. Yeah, that should be good enough for ‘Spin, right? Wrong. His first home run of the season has to...

How Not to Lose and Reversing the Trend of Met Bullpen Meltdowns

JAYSON WERTH WHIFFS: Sit your ass down, sucker! You know that feeling when Scott Rice walked the first two batters in the 8th inning yesterday with the Mets clinging to a 2 run lead? Kind of a helpless sense of doom and despair where you can’t bear to watch? With a little help from Jayson Werth the result didn’t turn out like so many other late-inning debacles have, but as I...

Game Preview: Dodgers vs Mets

The Mets and Dodgers start a series tomorrow night as the Mets look to build off of a series win against the Nationals.

The Dodgers catch the Mets at an interesting time as they just beat two of the better pitchers in baseball (Strasburg, Zimmermann) and the Mets will get another...

A Unique Path To A Loss

I hate games like this. When Jon Niese was hit in the ankle in the third inning by Mark Ellis and had to leave the game on Tuesday, with Clayton Kershaw on the other side, I was thinking, "well, this game is shot to hell, so I'll save my angst for what the Rangers do against the Panthers, or better yet I'll save my angst for a double dose of explosion on Thursday...
