PLAYERS: Dillon GeeMatt Harvey
TEAMS: New York Mets
Few Mets fans have been riding the Dillon Gee bandwagon for as long as I have. To me, and some of my closest Mets fan friends, he’s the second-coming of Rick Reed, down to sharing the number the veteran righty wore in his time in New York. Over the All-Star break, Gee was revealed to [...]

Dillon Gee’s Blot Clot May Be As Bad As It Sounds

It’s late summer, the last week of July. It’s mad hot outside. A fella gets out of bed to go to work. He’s got a slight grabbing pain in his lower back. “I must’ve slept funny,” he says to himself. After showering and getting dressed, the fella finds himself a little short of breath. “I must’ve smoked too many cigarettes last night. I’ll take it easier today...

Mets' Gee hopeful for quick return

Gee said on a conference call Tuesday that he could be cleared to throw within six weeks. He doesn't believe it will take long to regain his strength after that. Gee complained of numb fingers on his right hand July 8, a day after he pitched eight...

Hold Up On Harvey

As you probably could have guessed, I’m not in favor of bringing Matt Harvey up right now. I think just as with the Upton discussion, too many people are quick to jump to the easy solution. The Mets can easily send some top prospects for Upton, that doesn’t mean there’s no negative side to the deal. The Mets can easily appease the fans and call up Harvey, but that doesn’t...

Terry Collins: If The People Who See Harvey Say He’s Ready, Bring Him Up

Harvey Hysteria is gripping the Mets fanbase and I think even manager Terry Collins is getting caught up in it as he continues to weigh in daily and leans toward bringing him up with each passing day. Maybe during an idle moment, Collins had an opportunity to take a gander at Miguel Batista’s and Jeremy Hefner’s starts this season with the Mets? Maybe he didn’t particularly...

Mets mid-season prospect review, pitchers

This is the first of a two-part series looking at the team’s top prospects.  Check back on Sunday for Part II Pitchers: Matt Harvey – He didn’t make the team out of Spring Training and that proved to be a wise move.  Matt Harvey struggled in the early goings of 2012 as he landed in AAA for the first time.  It took him a while but in his last 5 starts he once again looks...

New York Mets (46-40) @ Atlanta Braves (46-39)

After an All-Star break with some highs and lows, the Mets are ready to begin the second half of 2012 after some mild roster tailoring. The glaring difference for now is the lack of Dillon Gee after the discovery of a blood clot which has him sentenced to shoulder surgery which could potentially end his season. Lefty reliever Josh Edgin has entered the fray however. The Mets were...

Six Things That Went Wrong In Mets First Half

No evaluation of the Mets is complete without a list of disappointments. While 46-40 at the break, the Mets have more to be happy about than not.  However, that doesn’t mean there aren’t laments.
