1. Travis d’Arnaud, C (AAA)
Then: d’Arnaud was the jewel of the R.A. Dickey trade and the expectations were that he’d be knocking on the door to replace John Buck before long. He profiled as a hitting catcher (albeit not of the caliber of Mike Piazza) and he was supposed to be the long term solution at the position.
Now: Not much has changed. SURE, he got hurt and has spent most of the season on the shelf but at the same time he should still profile the same way. His debut is simply being pushed back because he broke something. Though, some Met fans are more eager to jump off the bandwagon and have already done so. In their minds, d’Arnaud is an injury risk who will never be healthy enough for the impact we had hoped for. Those people COULD be right but right now I think they sound a tad paranoid. He should be up once he finishes rehabbing and hopefully won’t have to ever go back down.
Future: Unless d’Arnaud doesn’t come up this season because of that injury, he’s gradua

Jerry Seinfeld was not just a big New York Mets fan in “Seinfeld.” The actor/comedian loves the Mets in real life, and he was not in a joking mood after the events that took place at the All-Star Game at Citi Field on Tuesday night. Seinfeld, who actually named his dog after a former Mets player, [...]
So in yesterday’s MiLB Report, Adam Rubin noted that Wilmer Flores would miss the Triple-A All-Star game with an ankle injury — but the injury itself is considered to be minor. It’s bad timing for Flores, but his longterm health is more important than one exhibition game. One of the things that might have went by the boards in the report, however, was this…
As most of you know by now, Matt Harvey has been named the National League starting pitcher at the 84th All-Star Game to be played at Citi Field tonight at 8 p.m. EST.
Harvey is the third Mets pitcher to start an All-Star Game. Dwight Gooden started the 1988 All-Star Game at Cincinnati and the 1986 Game at Houston. Tom Seaver started the 1970 All-Star Game in Cincinnati.
It’s the Way of the Jeter T…
New York Mets Ace pitcher Matt Harvey has someone to look up to in New York. Harvey chatted with Men’s Journal and had this to say about the Yankees captain, “That guy is the model,” Harvey said. “I mean, first off, let’s just look at the women he’s dated. Obviously, he goes out — he’s meeting these girls somewhere — but you never...
Mets phenom Matt Harvey is living the dream in his first full season in the majors, starting the All-Star Game in front of the hometown fans and dating a supermodel. So why not shoot for the moon?
Harvey said he wants to have Derek Jeter's life, especially his love life, and have "the best apartment in the city" when he gets "that $200 million contract."...
When the New York Mets broke camp this spring, they did so with a myriad of questions for manager Terry Collins. That’s not surprising considering the Opening Day roster featured only nine players from the 2012 first-game roster.
I broke the questions down to pitching and position players, limiting each category to just five questions. So, let’s go back and address each question...
Tonight the New York Mets pitcher Matt Harvey will take the mound at Citi Field to start the Major League Baseball All-Star Game less than a year after making his MLB debut on the very same field. And the 24-year-old hurler clearly deserves it; he’s carrying a 7-2 record with a National League best 147 [...]The post Matt Harvey Trolls The Streets Of New York appeared first on The...

Offensive story: Wilmer Flores went into another gear over the last weeks, with both a four, and five hit game, and a two home run game mixed in. Overall, the 21 year old...
With the All-Star break’s two days of horror almost over (The two days without baseball after the ASG really suck), I decided to do a little research.
The Home Run Derby on Monday had home runs land in places I thought were impossible. Prince Fielder nearly cleared the Pepsi Porch while Yoenis Cespedes peppered the 3rd deck in LF.
So I began to wonder about what exactly were the...
Matt Harvey recently sat down with David Amsden of Men’s Journal to discuss how amazin’ it is being Matt Harvey.
When the article leaked Harvey caught some backlash for coming off cocky and a poor role model. Harvey even sent out a disclaimer about being taken out of context.
It really sucks how words get used and completely taken out of context.

Last night was a memorable All-Star Game to say the least. The night began with Matt Harvey, the 24 year old, Connecticut native and NY Mets budding superstar having a scoreless two-inning outing to kick off the game on his home turf. After a couple runs knocked in by the AL, the NL was left without the jumpstart they were in desperate need of, acquiring just 3 hits all night.
That’s the cover of this year’s Mets Media Guide. I was taking a look at it this morning and thought I spotted a curious omission. Before you read any further, take a look and see if you can spot it too…
Here is who is featured on the cover starting at the top and going left to right:
1. Tom Seaver
2. R.A. Dickey
3. Jon Matlack
4. Mike Piazza
5. John Stearns
6. Carlos Beltran...
Well the 2013 All-Star Game has come to a close as the American League defeated the National League by the score of 3-0. It was the lowest-scoring All-Star Game since 1990, when the AL earned a 2-0 victory.
I loved the Opening Ceremonies and it was great to see Carlos Beltran and Mariano Rivera get some nice ovations, but not nearly as loud and boisterous as the ovations for the...
