No reason for New York Mets fans to get steamed over ticket prices for the Subway Series. As part of a summer promotion, the Mets tied the ticket price for some top seats this weekend against the New York Yankees to the gametime temperature Wednesday night. With heat advisories posted in the city, it was 94 degrees when the Mets started against Baltimore, and that meant a nice savings for fans. It will now be $94 for left-field reserved seats at Citi Field on Friday night, down from the usual $115. It also will be $94 for field boxes Sunday night, cut from the regular $136. The team began selling tickets at the discounted prices right away, and said quantities were limited.

Mets Double Down to Back Gee in 4-3 Win

Dillon Gee was masterful, Frank Francisco walked the tight rope and a bunch of doubles were enough for the Mets on Wednesday night. Gee went seven-and-one-third innings, allowing just two runs on three hits. He walked two and struck out nine in a brilliant outing, at one point retiring 13 in-a-row. He turned it over to the bullpen for the final five outs and they made it worth the...

By the way, if you can’t tell, that’s Dillon Gee, Tom Goodwin, Bobby Parnell, Jay Horwitz, Jon Niese, Tim Byrdak, and Eric Langill (bullpen catcher). Here’s another picture, where Mets PR man Jay Horwitz makes another appearance: By the way, if you can’t tell, that’s Josh Thole, Jeff...

Will The Mets Break Their Holding Pattern?

They get swept, they sweep. They get swept, they sweep. That’s how it’s looked since Friday, June 8, when the Mets walked into Yankee Stadium, fresh off dropping two in Washington, with Johan Santana making his first nerve-wracking appearance since his no-hitter. It didn’t go well. The gopher was well-fed by the time Sunday afternoon came around and the Yankees smirked...

R.A. Dickey shows how to throw a knuckleball

THAT's what's up We don’t need to scream from the back of the Dickey congregation any longer. He’s been found by all at this point. It’s simply awesome to watch. A knuckleballer that’s captivating any baseball fan worth his salt. The story is amazing. But, more impressively, the pitching is amazing. Dickey’s array of knucklers is dazzling. The fast one. The slower...

Video: Tom Seaver asks Darryl Strawberry about his handcuffs

We all know that Darryl Strawberry, the former New York Mets great, has a few demons from his past. He has walked the straight and narrow the last few years and recently took part in an event honoring the All-Time Mets. He was asked a question about the 69 Mets and the 86 version, and [...]

It Couldn’t Be Happening To A Better Guy

In case you are unaware, R.A. Dickey is having one of the finest seasons in Mets history and currently on possibly the best stretch for a pitcher in the modern era. With all the thousands of pitchers who come and go throughout major league baseball, there is not a more fitting man to ascend to such a unheard of level of success in 2012. We all know Dickey’s story of how the first...

R.A. Dickey Continues to Defy Odds As Dominant Run Not Showing Any Signs of Slowing Down

R.A. Dickey's story is an incredible one. The veteran right-hander has seen ups and downs at every juncture of his life, but it's safe to assume he's never seen a peak this high. The Mets knuckleballer has found himself as a pitcher while throwing what some consider a gimmick pitch, and he's throwing it better than he ever has this year. Dickey has been relatively...

Mets closer Frank Francisco calls Yankees 'chickens'

Mets closer Frank Francisco sure knows how to egg on his team's cross-town rivals the New York Yankees.  Right before an important three game series this weekend, he calls them names and calls them out. "I can't wait to face those chickens," Francisco told The New York Post right before the Yankees cross the road (actually the Grand Central Parkway) to meet the...

Met’s R.A. Dickey Has Earned the N.L. All-Star Starting Spot

R.A. Dickey’s impeccable control with that dancing knuckleball has made him the most dominant pitcher in baseball. Dickey became the first major leaguer in 24 years to throw consecutive one-hitters and Ike Davis hit a grand slam to lead the New York Mets past the Baltimore Orioles 5-0 on Monday night. Coming off a one-hit gem at Tampa Bay last Wednesday, Dickey struck out a career...

Looking R.A. Dickey Up on FanGraphs

R.A. Dickey leads the Majors in strikeouts. He has more than Stephen Strasburg, more than Justin Verlander, more than Gio Gonzalez. Nobody in baseball has generated as many strike threes as R.A. Dickey. Since he has never done anything like this before — his next strikeout will actually match his 2010 total — people are asking him what he’s doing differently. After his...
