There isn’t anything wrong with the New York Mets puffing out their collective chests a bit and feeling some pride after pulling off a four-game, home-and-home sweep of the in-town rival New York Yankees. But there might be something wrong with a pitcher who hasn’t even made a start this season and has only appeared [...]The post Mets P Collin McHugh tweets smack about sweep of Yankees, wisely deletes it appeared first on Sportress of Blogitude.

Collin McHugh, the young righthander who is scheduled to make his first start of the season for the New York Mets on Saturday, rubbed a little salt into the already wounded New York Yankees after his team took all four games of the Subway Series this weekend.
McHugh — who didn't even get to look at a Yankee player from the mound during the unbelievable sweep — did all...
The New York Yankees would like nothing better than to see their star shortstop Derek Jeter return to health. So would millions of baseball fans around the world. If the Yankees front office were smart, they would sit out Jeter for the rest of the 2013 season. At the age of 38, there is no sense rushing Jeter back into service. The Yankees have shown they can play competitive baseball...

Terry Collins said Jon Niese is expected to miss just one start, according to Adam Rubin of ESPN New York.
Niese’s shoulder is feeling better, Collins said, but the team will know more after he pitches his next bullpen session on Tuesday.
He was examined Thursday morning at the Hospital for Special Surgery and an MRI revealed inflammation, but no structural damage...
Although the Miami Marlins defeated the New York Mets on Friday night, there was one positive sign for the Amazin’s: Ike Davis is beginning to hit his stride at the plate.
Davis was faced with a possible demotion earlier this week when the Mets traveled to Yankee Stadium, but proceeded to have a two-hit night that included a two-run single that knocked Yankees starter David Phelps...
Prior to tonight’s game, the Mets placed infielder Ruben Tejada on the 15-Day Disabled List with a right quad strain and selected the contract of infielder Omar Quintanilla from Las Vegas (AAA) of the Pacific Coast League. Quintanilla will wear #3 and was hitting .333 (42-126) with 26 runs scored, nine doubles, two triples, two home runs and 18 RBI in 47 games for Las...
Well, so much for riding the momentum of sweeping the Yankees.
As it is a common occurrence to the Mets and their fans, they tend to show up for the big affairs but fail to get up for teams they should beat. After riding into Miami with a five-game winning streak, the Mets were once again lifeless in a 5-1 loss to the Marlins–a team with a 14-41 record (with, yes, four of their...
When Kirk Nieuwenhuis was first called up, no one really knew what to expect. Despite succeeding at every level that he played in the minors, he was not considered to be a top prospect, and his ceiling was never high. However, he performed very well, especially in the clutch, and was affectionately given the nickname Captain Kirk.
He struggled in the second half of 2012 and finished...

Tejada said that he felt a pull during that particular play, but it became even...

** No better time to make changes than after getting swept by the cross-town Mets. Fortunately, some moves will be natural as some former All-Stars are returning from the disabled list. Kevin Youkilis and Mark Teixeira are set to play today (Friday) against the Red Sox.
The Yankees bats have really been quiet lately. Against the Mets...
DATELINE: 2019: Last night, the Yankees celebrated the return of longtime star slugger Kevin Youkilis in a victory over Boston. Youkilis teamed with centerfielder Jacoby Ellsbury to beat the Redsocks and pitcher Phil Hughes. When Youkilis came to bat, the crowd instantly began chanting his name, signaling a grand New York tradition that began in 2013...Spoiler alert: I have a psychological...

Game 56: Yankees take it, 4-1
Well, it wasn't a game of many highlights, but singles and walks gave the Yankees a 4-1 victory. In a rematch from Opening Day, C.C. Sabathia beat Jon Lester by simply pitching better, and it was simple; Lester missed his spots and C.C. didn't. Sabathia went over seven innings and struck out ten. Hopefully...
Jose Fernandez, the 20-year old Marlins pitching phenom, suffocated the Mets tonight as Miami beat them by the score of 8-1 to take their second straight game of the series.
Collin McHugh made his first start of the season and he was in trouble right from the start. The righthander lasted just four innings and was charged with four runs on six hits and three walks while striking...
