Mets bounce back strong with hot sticks to beat the Rockies 7-5. The Blob wants to enjoy the win and the rest of Saturday night with a Happy Nightcap, and keep this brief. The Mets have done it at the plate in the first 2 games in Colorado putting up 16 runs. The Mets face the 206 year old lefty Jamie Moyerthuselah in the rubber match while the Mets have Santana on the hill. The Blob likes out

Well the Mets certainly had an interesting series in Denver this weekend. They got smoked in the first game losing 18-9, they were down twice in the second game but won 7-5, and today after blowing a 4-0 lead for Johan Santana, they won in extra innings 6-5 in spite of the bullpen’s worst efforts. As a typical series at Coors Field, the offense enjoyed the visit, and the pitching...
It took me a moment to decide who I was going to focus this week. Zack Wheeler tossed two more games, Reese Havens returned to Binghamton and made up for lost time, Wilmer Flores is still hitting and T.J. Rivera continues to try his best to make me take notice of his play in Savannah. Instead I’m going to write about Cory Vaughn… Again.
I have a pretty legit excuse. ...
When Scott Hairston went into the off-season after his first year with the Mets last season, the club was not shy regarding its willingness to bring him ba
During blogger day at Citi Field on Wednesday, the Daily Stache spoke to Hairston regarding his decision to re-sign with the Mets and also what it means to lose a guy like Jason Bay to the disabled list.
“I wanted to sign with...
The team's extra inning win last night allowed them to match their high water mark of the season, four games over .500. Winning five of their last six, the Mets now find themselves within one game of the division leading Nationals and Braves.At this point, most things are going well for the Metropolitans. Headed into Houston, a team which has posted only an 8-14 record to date...
Baseball America’s Prospect Hot Sheet for the period April 20-26 has Mets top prospect RHP Matt Harvey ranked #6 and 3B Wilmer Flores gets an honorable mention.
Regarding Flores BA Writes:
For as long as he’s been around, it’s easy to forget that Wilmer Flores is still just a 20-year-old in the high Class A Florida State League. Now playing third base for the Mets,...
The 2012 Mets need Ike Davis and Lucas Duda to be healthy and productive in the middle of the order to have a successful season. Unfortunately, both of these players started off the year hitting poorly. Here were their numbers through April 13th:
ID – 1-23 with 9 Ks in 26 PA (34.6 K%)
LD – 3-25 with 9 Ks in 28 PA (32.1 K%)
The Mets were able to stay afloat thanks to surprisingly...
Collins Pushing all the right buttons so far!
Today's Mets Starting Lineup vs Rockies - Game 22 :
Note: If you notice , Collins is using the Lefty/Righty Approach against the Lefty Moyer. This makes it harder to match-up later in the game.
Jon Matlack’s career record of 125-126 may be as mediocre as you can get, but Matlack was a much, much better than average major league pitcher. In fact, he was one of the very finest lefthanded pitchers ever developed by the Mets’ organization. His other career marks – 3.18 lifetime ERA (better than Steve Carlton, who was considered the best lefty of his generation), 97 complete...
The New York Mets allowed a total of 4 runs against the Miami Marlins in their sweep of the floundering fish this week. Tonight, the club multiplied that 4-run total by 4 and added 3, just for good measure.The New York Mets (11-9) dropped the series opener against the Colorado Rockies (10-9) 19-8 tonight behind atrocious pitching and a few defensive mishaps. After the Mets jumped...
Fans of the New York Metropolitans haven't had much to celebrate in recent seasons. Their last winning record was 89-73 in 2008, after Jerry Manuel took over for Willie Randolph midseason. Compared to the doom and gloom many predicted for the Mets, the start of this young season has been a pleasant surprise for fans from Flushing.The Mets are three games over .500, trailing...
Johan Santana will start today for the Mets. Santana is coming off a great start against Marlins. Hopefully the Mets offense will actually score a run for their lefty ace.
The Rockies will send Methuselah, Jamie Moyer to the hill. The 49 year old Moyer is 1-2 with a respectable 2.28 ERA.
Also in the news it sounds like Andres Torres will be back this week, and will be given the CF and
This afternoon, the New York Mets will look to take the rubber match against the Colorado Rockies in a series that has proven to be a battle of the braun . Over the course of the first 2 games of the series, 38 men have crossed the plate in a series of back-and-forth slugfests.The rubber match will ultimately be a battle of 2 elite pitchers, although their status as elite comes under...

This season Jose Reyes is making $10 million. Ruben Tejada is making $491 thousand.
Or, $625,000 per Reyes hit this year. $17,500 something per Tejada hit.

Why pay $625K per hit when you can pay $17.5K per hit? Good job Mr. Alderson. Thanks for not giving a bad contract to Jose Reyes.
