The Mets announced today that they signed both infielder Brad Emaus and outfielder Fred Lewis to minor league deals. Both will be assigned Triple-A Buffalo.
Emaus will make his second tour of duty will the Mets after being taken by the Amazin’s in the Rule V and played 14 games going 6-37 in his Met career before being returned to the Rockies where he hit .313 (51-for-163) for...
With the Mets set to start a weekend set against the Rockies in Colorado, it’s only natural for us to think about power and home runs that seem to fly out of that place with the thin air.
You can bet that the Mets are thinking about it as well. Speaking of betting, sports betting websites can be found at this link. With the rut that Ike Davis is in, this is a bad idea for him....

RECENT METS: The Mets have won two games in a row and are now 6-2 at home vs. NL East opponents and 7-5 overall…Last year
New York was 34-47 at home, including 15-21 vs. the NL East.
The Mets couldn’t be feeling too good about themselves as Johan Santana was leaving the game in the seventh inning. Despite pitching spectacularly, Santana was leaving the game with a 1-0 deficit. Part of the problem was the Mets not being able to score runs against the Miami Marlins ace Josh Johnson. The other part was a shoddy relay throw that allowed Giancarlo Stanton to score...
The Cincinnati Reds, one of the preseason favorites to win the NL Central, are 8-9, 2.5 games out of first place. On the surface, that looks fine. But dig a little deeper, and you realize that the team's offense has been awful. They're htiting just .229 with only 11 homers, and with the entire team struggling, it's hard to point the blame at one person. Well, I can think...
During the New York Mets 5-2 victory over the Miami Marlins on Wednesday night, Jon Rauch retired two of the three batters he faced before handing the ball over to Bobby Parnell to complete the scoreless frame; picking up his third hold of the season:
Prior to the game, manager Terry Collins appeared on the Mike Francesa show and said the following about the right hander:
1. Coming into this season Kirk Nieuwenhuis was in a battle for a reserve outfield role. Now it looks like he is the star of the ball shagging group.
2. Jordanny Valdespin will get his chance to show he belongs with the injury to Cedeno. He will be here as a back-up infielder and outfielder, and will get some starts in the coming days to show his bat belongs here.
3. Johan Santana...
After another successful home stand, the Mets fly out West to Colorado before heading to Houston. At 11-8, the Mets have to build some momentum on this road trip.
The Rockies and Astros both present very winnable matchups for the Mets, and when you consider the Mets will see Arizona-Philadelphia-Miami-Milwaukee-Cincinnati-Toronto. Six teams that many predicted would be in a playoff...

Mike Pelfrey will undergo Tommy John Surgery on his right elbow, and miss the remainder of the season.
His recovery and return could be anywhere between 12 and 18 months depending on how the elbow responds and any potential setbacks. Pelfrey does have youth on his side which could bode well for him.
Pelfrey was placed on the 15-day disabled list yesterday...
What a difference a few days make! The Mets were coming off the two worst series of the season so far as they dropped a series in Atlanta and then three of four to the Giants, the Mets fell to .500 for the season. The Mets then swept the Marlins, reestablished a cushion above .500 and are traveling with momentum on their side. It would have been easy for the Mets to fall back this...
Well this just about brings it home, so to speak. Doesn't it?
It promised to be an eventful day, but we just didn't know how eventful. We awoke to "Jose Reyes Day" with Jason Bay hitting the disabled list with a fractured rib which he accrued by flailing and missing a fly ball. This we sort of expected. But then we find out that Mike Pelfrey (the other boo twin...

Hamilton is running away with the title of ‘Most Exciting Player’ in the minors. The Reds speedster has 18 steals (in 22 tries) in as many games. He’s using his speed to get on-base too; he’s hitting .405 from the left side and has beaten out a few infield singles...
