The Mets have announced that left fielder Jason Bay has been activated from the 15-day disabled list and reliever Pedro Beato from the 60-day disabled list. To make room for Jason Bay on the roster, the Mets have placed pitcher Chris Young on paternity leave. Meanwhile, the Mets designated Josh Satin for assignment to clear a spot for Pedro Beato. So in the last 24 hours, the Mets have designated Jack Egbert and Josh Satin. Both of them must now pass through waivers and I have a strong feeling that Egbert will most likely get claimed… Satin, not so much… The Young thing buys them a couple of days before deciding which position player gets the ax…

Bay's return delayed

Photo by Michael BaronJason Bay could have returned as early as this weekend from his stint on the DL with a broken rib, Bay landed on the DL after diving for a fly ball and landing hard on the warning track. At the time of his injury he was once again struggling offensively, hitting just .240 with three homeruns, two doubles and five RBIs.  The Mets need to hope Bay can pick it...

The Positives For Jason Bay’s Return, Possible Lineup Changes

According to ESPN’s Adam Rubin, Mets outfielder Jason Bay is scheduled to return from the disabled list today and will be in the lineup tonight. His absence proved to be very valuable in that we got to see what we had in young outfielders Kirk Nieuwenhuis and Mike Baxter. However, despite the stellar play of these two young hitters we are still missing some key elements that Jason...

Wild Game, Bullpen Blows It In 7-6 Loss In Extras To Nationals

Chris Young looked good in his first start since May of 2011, but a comedy of errors lead to a thrilling game that was decided in the twelfth in the Mets 7-6 loss. Game Recap Chris Young coming back to the Mets in his first start in over a year pitched admirably, going five innings while giving up three runs (two earned) on six hits, walking one and striking out two. Young consistently...

PreGame: New York Mets (31-24) at Washington Nationals (30-22)

The Mets open a nine-game road trip tonight in Washington D.C. where they’ll begin a three-game set with the National League East leading Nationals.

Tim Byrdak’s splits, Ike Davis’ slump, Chris Young’s LD%

Tim Byrdak has appeared in an MLB-high 33 games this year. Amazingly, 18 of those appearances have been for a single batter. We can debate the wisdom of carrying a pitcher for such an incredibly limited role. What is crystal clear is how efficient Byrdak has been in those one-batter outings and how horrible he has been in other outings. Here are his splits based on batters faced...

3 Up & 3 Down: A DC Power Shift Edition

To be fair, we have to say the Washington Nationals are a nice up and coming team. With a mix of young guys, like Bryce Harper, veterans like Adam LaRcoche, some great starting pitching, and a fantastic field manager in Davey Johnson, DC baseball fans should not be making plans for October! Our Mets were in DC and they were only able to grab the last game of the three game series...

Daily Notes | More Bullets

Chris Young will be making the start for the Mets tonight at Washington. He is 13 months removed from the same shoulder surgery that Johan Santana and Mark Prior have had. He has had 4 rehab starts, three in Single A where he pitched a 3.18 ERA and then 6 scoreless in his last start at AAA. He is expected to max out at 80 or 85 pitches today. I've grabbed him as a lotto ticket...

Post Game: Nationals 5 – Mets 3

After an excellent start to the month of June, the Mets dropped their 3rd straight game, 2nd straight to the Nationals in Washington.  With the tight NL East, the Mets fell to 4th with a win by the Braves over the Marlins. Jeremy Hefner made his 3rd start of the season, allowing 4 runs (3 earned) in 6 innings on 7 hits.  3 of the runs came in the 1st inning on a home run by Adam...

What You Need to Know: Wednesday, June 6 by Daniel Rathman

The Tuesday Takeaway After five innings of last night’s series opener between the Mets and Nationals, the home team led 3-0 and the game story was simple: Jordan Zimmermann outshines Chris Young in Young’s 2012 debut, as Washington extends its NL East lead. That last clause still rang true at the end of the 12-inning marathon, but by the time the Nats walked off with a 7-6 win...

Mets-Nationals Preview

The Washington Nationals are sputtering, but they still hold an unlikely lead by the slimmest of margins in the cluttered NL East. It may be even more surprising that the New York Mets aren't far behind. The Nationals will try to reverse a sluggish stretch in the opener of this three-game series against the visiting Mets on Tuesday night. Washington (30-22) and New York (31...
