Can the Mets count on Johan Santana in the second half?

For once, the Mets’ beleaguered bullpen cannot be blamed for another tough, gut-wrenching defeat, when on Friday night the Mets fell to the Los Angeles Dodgers 7-6. The Mets have now dropped eight out of their last ten. Ironically, it was the Mets’ bullpen that kept the team in Friday’s affair, as four Mets’ relievers combined to pitch six innings while allowing only one...

Harvey in the bullpen could be Mets best bet in 2012

Despite management’s decision to have Miguel Batista start on Saturday, there is a great outcry to have 2010 first round pick Matt Harvey called up and fill the void in the rotation left by Dillon Gee’s blood clot injury. The logic makes sense. Harvey has handled triple-A pretty well and the Mets seem to lack the depth necessary to effectively fill in for Gee. Even if Gee was...

Santana & The Soggy Mets: Mets Lineup V. Dodgers - July 20, 2012

If the Mets get this game in tonight, it will be against the Dodgers. With the weather being absolutely cloudy and wet in NY, chances are they might be a future double header.

For the Mets, relief may have to come from within

It’s no secret that the Mets bullpen has been problematic all season long.  As a whole the Mets are the only team with a bullpen ERA over 5 and rank dead last in the majors in that category. So with the trade deadline approaching and the Mets ship heading in a sinking direction, fans have called for the front office to plug the holes.  This is an understandable cry for help...

Are You Worried About Johan Santana?

I’m sure you all remember the tearful post-game presser by Terry Collins on the night of June 1, 2012. That was the historic date of Johan Santana’s no-hitter, the first in Mets franchise history. Collins had originally intended to cap Johan’s pitches at 115, and you could se him agonizing after every pitch that went beyond that. At one point, Collins walked to the mound to...

Mets' Dickey disappoints in relief

Before Saturday afternoon's game against the Los Angeles Dodgers, New York Mets manager Terry Collins indicated that he might start using R.A. Dickey in relief, allowing the soft-throwing junk-ball ace to take some pressure off the Mets' overworked bullpen. The early returns on Collins' decision are in, and if they're any indication of what's to come, he may...

Since throwing the franchises first no-hitter Santana is 3-4 with a 5.67 ERA in 39 innings pitched. Terry...
