The Mets are trying to figure out what to do with the struggling Jason Bay, but it sounds like the team already has its plans set.
In what was an exciting day for the Mets as they unveiled their logo for next seasons All-Star Game, Met fans got what they should now be used to by now. Good news in one hand and bad news in the other. The bad news pertains to, as it lately always does, Jason Bay.
Mets GM Sandy Alderson stated that the Mets would not be eating Jason Bay’s current contract with the team in order...
The very hot topic lately with the Metsmerized Nation, and with Mets fans in general, has been the future of the Metropolitans’ outfield, and more specifically, Jason Bay’s future with the team.
Mike B noted in his post earlier that Sandy Alderson has stated that the Mets are not simply going to eat Bay’s contract and release him. This all but crushes many Mets fans dreams...
Why the hype?
Jeurys Familia, SP: Before the season started, Familia was considered one of the top three prospects in the Mets minor league systems. Coming into the season, some people ranked him higher than Matt Harvey and/or Zack Wheeler. As the season comes to an end, he has become a polarizing prospect. With a 96 MPH fastball and a biting slider, no one can argue his stuff...
As the New York Mets returned home, one of the big questions surrounding the team was the future of outfielder Jason Bay. General Manager Sandy Alderson had hinted before the team's road trip that Bay would get an 11 game opportunity to show where he fit into the team's plans for the remainder of this season and beyond. When Bay disappointed on the trip...
Jose Reyes and his 24 game hitting streak return to Flushing. The former (it still kills me to write this) Mets SS has been on a rampage in raising his average to .288 and his OBP to .351. Hopefully this time the Flushing Faithful will cheer Jose and Jeer the Marlins.
Jason Bay will sit start tonight against the Marlin lefty Wade LeBlanc. Why it should matter whether the pitcher is right handed
In a game where defense haunted the Bisons, it was only fitting that the Herd would lose without giving up a hit.
After allowing three unearned runs on the night, the Herd allowed one more “unearned” run in the bottom of the 12th as reliever, Fernando Cabrera threw a wild pitch, allowing Lehigh Valley to score and win the game 5-4 in extra innings.
Buffalo took an early 2-0 lead...
Apologies for not being able to blog Tuesday night's extravaganza. My laptop had a corrupted kernel and had to be restored to factory settings. If only we could do the same for Jason Bay.Speaking of Bay, what is this about platooning Bay so he can find some favorable matchups? We're going to play him against lefthanders? He's hitting .140 against lefties!!! Not that...
A wild pitch by Fernando Cabrera with the bases loaded and two outs led to Lehigh Valley getting the victory over Buffalo 5-4 in 12 innings Wednesday night.
Jeurys Familia started the game for the Bisons and pitched much better than his previous two outings for Buffalo. Familia threw six innings, allowing five hits, four runs, although only one earned due to errors, with two walks...
Right now the Mets outfield situation is a disaster. Who would have thought that not one single player would solidify himself this season as a starter for 2013. Just about everyone we have thrown out there has left something to be desired. There is still time for that to change, but time is running out quickly.
The Amazin: Where would we be without Scott Hairston? He is so scary...
2012 is the set-up season for the Mets 2013 push. That’s how it was advertised in the Spring, that’s how it was advertised when we were doing well in the first half, and that’s how it has been advertised in the current team slump.
An interesting situation that has popped up with the Mets is the lack of standout OF starters. Every starter has some major flaw, which has kept...
