BEST OF MAXIM
When Sandy Alderson and company selected Brandon Nimmo with the Mets first round (13th overall) pick in the 2011 draft it was hardly a slam dunk. This is because Nimmo’s home state, Wyoming, might have a higher population of endangered American Buffalo than high-school athletes. (Also… Wyoming is pretty cold). Nimmo’s talents were only truly put on display with his play...
When asked about the difference between facing Triple-A and major league hitters, Mets starter Matt Harvey said:
“When you make a mistake, they hit it. Down there you can get away with some stuff. Not all the time, but more often than not. Up here, you’re going to make a mistake, they’re going to hit it. They did. I just have to do a better job.”
I really love how Harvey...
From time to time I will check out other Mets websites, and blogsites. I have as they say, some “friends in the biz,” and I enjoy seeing what they’re up to on occasion.
Today I was on Mack’s Mets and I saw something there, an opinion by a “scout,” about one of our Mets farmhands, and I have a real problem with what I saw. I really don’t know what kind of scout this...
Mets left-handed reliever Tim Byrdak, aka The Byrdman, aka Hulk Hogan, was placed on the DL friday with a sore shoulder. Ok, no problem. Like most Mets fans, I figured he was bound to wind up there with a dead arm at some point this year consider how much this guy is used. But when the results of an MRI showed a torn anterior capsule of his left shoulder, I was angry.
The New York Mets have unveiled the logo for the 2013 All-Star game and attached the insignia to the center-field scoreboard at Citi Field.
Mets stars David Wright, Johan Santana, R.A. Dickey and manager Terry Collins were joined by former Mets Dwight Gooden, Keith Hernandez, John Franco and Ron Darling at Tuesday's ceremony.
The logo for the game next July is similar to the...
catch a glimpse of the young gun in action tonight
Tonight Mets top prospect Zack Wheeler will make his much anticipated debut for Triple-A Buffalo. The game will be televised on SNY with coverage starting at 7:00 PM.
Wheeler dominated Double-A this season to the tune of a 10-6 mark, with a 3.26 ERA. He gave up just 92 hits and struck out 117 batters in 116 innings pitched ....
Today in Brooklyn, Johan Santana threw three scoreless innings in his rehab start, allowing just one hit, one walk, and striking out three in a 8-0 Cyclones victory over the Auburn Doubledays.
Santana threw 38 pitches before he went to the bullpen and tossed three more simulated innings, totaling 90 pitches for the day.
During his post-game conference, Johan confirmed that he...
Ruben Tejada extended his career-best hitting streak to 12 games last night, going 1-5. Tejada is batting .364 (20-55) with four runs scored and two RBI during this current stretch.
The Mets shortstop is hitting .331 (55-166) with a .367 on-base percentage since he returned from the Disabled List on June 24.
Tejada’s .322 batting average is the highest among all major league...
Domingo Tapia: Hard Luck Loser
A lot of stuff went on down on the farm this weekend. Johan made a rehab start for Brooklyn. Tyler Pill continues to dazzle in the Florida State League. Nimmo and Evans heat up with the lumber, and much more. And thanks to our new and improved Mets minor league coverage, you don’t have to search the web to find out what happened. We’ve got you covered...
It’s 5:20 PM, and it’s the bottom of the fifth inning of the New York Mets vs. San Diego Padres game. This is the first time I have ever started to write anything before a game was finished, but I have to get this off my chest.
Why are the Mets insisting on Matt Harvey throwing so many change-ups?
I don’t see the logic. I see the logic in the change-up, just not in the way...
Plawecki Has Excellent Power-Hitting Potential As A Catcher
Note: This interview was conducted on July 3rd, so references to the game from the night before were actually the game on July 2nd.
Petey: I talking today with NY Mets 2012 1st-round sandwich pick, catcher Kevin Plawecki of the Brooklyn Cyclones. Kevin how does it feel to be in your first season in professional baseball...
You probably have figured out after seven years of doing this that I like to be aggravated. I like to think that I don't aggravate easily without a good reason. And let's face it. The Mets have given me no shortage of good reasons to be aggravated.I can't get aggravated by Sunday's loss. Don't get me wrong ... I really want to. Especially because the Mets, as...
