Sports Injury Alert:
According to Adam Rubin of ESPN, Mets’ outfielder Chris Young left Wednesday’s game due to a quadriceps injury.Andrew Brown will apparently replace Chris Young (quadriceps).— Adam Rubin (@AdamRubinESPN) April 2, 2014As our very own NatsLady of SportsInjuryAlert stated yesterday, Young was expected back in the lineup today after suffering his first quadriceps injury in Montreal during an exhibition game.Young was signed to a one-year $7.25 million deal in the offseason after playing with the Athletics last season. The White Sox traded him after being drafted in the 16th round to the Diamondbacks and played there until he was traded to the Athletics before the 2013 season. In 2013, Young hit for a line of .200/.280/.379 with 12 home runs, 40 runs batted in, and 36 walks in 107 games. His career slash of .235/.315/.431 is below average, but the ability to hit the ball out of the ballpark, 144 times in 8 season, has kept him in the majors. This spring, Young went 18 of 58 with 1 home ...

Chris Young’s New York Mets debut did not last long. After playing just one inning in Wednesday’s game against the Washington Nationals, Young was taken out of the game. The Mets initially called it right quad tightness, and today Young was placed on the 15-day disabled list. Mets place OF Chris Young on the 15-Day DL with a tight right quad and activate INF Daniel Murphy...
“Here’s the problem: the Mets aren’t just bad, they’re DULL and bad”
Those were the words Tweeted by your intrepid columnist as Andrew Brown struck out against Craig Stammen to wrap up the Mets’ first 0-2 start in nine years. 2005, when the Mets got off 0-5 and were only rescued by a Pedro Martinez gem. The feeling around the team was better back then – Martinez...
Dillon Gee doesn’t have an innings limit. Zack Wheeler and Jenrry Mejia do. Both Wheeler and Mejia have a tremendous amount of upside in regards to stuff and age, but being an ace means being on the field, and neither will realistically pitch 30 starts or more. Wheeler could supplant the role of ace later in the season, but this article isn’t forecasting, it’s stating current...
The Mets look to avoid an opening series sweep to start the season when they take on the Washington Nationals this afternoon at 1:10 PM. Zack Wheeler makes his season debut and will oppose Jordan Zimmermann for the Nationals.

After concerns regarding Bobby Parnell’s health during his appearance in yesterday’s loss to the Nationals, ESPN reported that tests revealed today that he actually has a partial tear in the right medial collateral ligament in his elbow which could spell trouble for his season.
Parnell, who is the closer for the Mets, had trouble this offseason with a herniated disc that limited...
Growing up we all heard the phrase – “Mind your p’s and q’s.” To paraphrase the definition, it meant to mind your own business. In the business of putting together a competitive baseball team, the New York Mets have some work to do. It starts with P’s and Q.
With Bobby Parnell already injured, Jose Valverde gets the nod to be the team’s closer. If one game is any indication...
An MMO Fan Shot by Adam AKA Schnitzer’s Marble Rye
Should the Mets have traded Ike Davis for Matt Joyce?
After watching a spring training filled with injuries, inconsistency, and still no clear cut answers at the first base position, I’m wondering if Sandy Alderson made a mistake by not pulling the trigger on a Matt Joyce for Ike Davis trade. In November, I read a post on MMO...
Terry Collins told reporters that he’s picking one first baseman and sticking with him, beginning on Friday. Collins wouldn’t announce who it would be, but did say that he would play him for a while.
Both Lucas Duda and Ike Davis played today with the latter singling late in the game for the first and only hit from the first base position in three games. The Mets have started...
Mets closer Bobby Parnell has a partially torn medial collateral ligament in his elbow, the team announced. He received a platelet-rich plasma injection and will rest for two weeks before beginning a throwing program. The team says Parnell will then be reevaluated to see if he needs surgery.
Parnell, 29, allowed one run in an inning of work on Monday, blowing the save on Opening...
Not even the most pessimistic Mets fan could have predicted how nightmarish the first 24 hours of the 2014 season would shake out.
It began yesterday when everything seemed to be falling into place. Andrew Brown filled in for Chris Young and in his first at-bat, hit a 3-run-home-run off Stephen Strasburg to give the Mets a 3-0 lead.
Washington would come back to tie the game at 4...
"Idiots Mike Francesa, Craig Carton and Boomer Esiason said awful things in reaction to the Mets’ Daniel Murphy’s recent paternity leave." That's what Dr. Scott Behson writes. Dr. Behson added, "Second, shame on Francesa, Esiason and Carton. Not everyone has to be on board with supporting fathers and families, I guess. However, it crosses the line to suggest...
Some background on one of the nation’s top stories – New York Mets second baseman, Daniel Murphy, skipped out on the team’s season opener against the Washington Nationals to be with his wife while she gave birth to their first child. Now he’s catching some flack. Deservedly.
Who does this guy think he is? Taking days – maybe even weeks – at a time to be with his...
