Matt Harvey looks to end the Mets skid

Last week New York Mets manager Terry Collins referred to Matt Harvey as his Ace.  With a 4-0 record and 1.54 ERA, it’s hard to argue with Collins and Harvey will have yet another opportunity to prove worth of the title when the Mets head to Miami tonight to face the Marlins in the midst of a season-high four game losing streak.  Getting swept at home by the Phillies like the...

David Wright Questionable For Tonight

The bad news about the Mets keeps getting worse. David Wright, who was supposed to rest his stiff neck last night, was used as a pinch-hitter and now he’s questionable for tonight’s game at Miami, While it is conjecture Wright might have done something to aggravate his condition, the question can’t help be asked. Seriously, is winning a game in April worth losing Wright for...

Mets' Wright sits out at Miami with stiff neck

New York Mets third baseman David Wright was held out of the starting lineup Monday night at Miami because of a stiff neck, and said he hoped to miss only one game. Wright said neck spasms began to bother him during Sunday's loss against Philadelphia, and he felt worse when he woke up Monday. ''It's not something I'm worried about,'' Wright said before...

David Wright scratched from lineup with stiff neck

The New York Mets' star third baseman David Wright has been removed from Monday night's lineup with a stiff neck, reports Kristie Ackert of the New York Daily News. The Mets hope that Wright will only need one day to recover from the problem. He began to feel his neck tighten up during Sunday night's game, according to manager Terry Collins: "He began...

Wright Questionable For Tonight, But Not As Questionable As Collins’ Recent Moves

The bad news about the Mets keeps getting worse. David Wright, who was supposed to rest his stiff neck last night, was used as a pinch-hitter and now he’s questionable for tonight’s game at Miami, While it is conjecture Wright might have done something to aggravate his condition, the question can’t help be asked. Seriously, is winning a game in April worth losing Wright for...

Nice Guys Finish Last: David Wright’s Decision To Stay

The street I live on is a fairly quiet residential one lane road. Three miles to the south it meanders up into the foothills that look down on the valley. It gives way to an expansive residence, the proverbial mansion on the hill. At night, the home is illuminated in a sea of blackness. There’s nothing close by and the property seems big enough to warrant its own zip code. On many...

The New York Mets Future Is Bright

The New York Mets aren’t a very good team right now, they haven’t been for a few years now either.  It is hard to be a New York Mets fan right now but you can see a light at the end of the tunnel.  If nothing else every fifth day when Matt Harvey is on the mound you have to feel that the Mets are going to win and that they could be the best team in baseball on that day.  Harvey...

Sobering Week For The Mets

After taking 2 of 3 from the Nationals last weekend, the Mets then dropped 5 of the next 6 games. The only game the Mets won was a start by Matt Harvey where he wasn’t his best, but the rest of staff stepped up. The 5 losses in the last week, and a good portion of the losses earlier in the season have come from the bullpen. Sometimes I want to blame Terry and how he’s pressing...

David Wright Hurts Neck; Larry David Explains How He Hurt It

David Wright will not play tonight against the Miami Marlins for what Mets Manager Terry Collins says is a stiff neck. Now this is not considered to be serious and he should be back in the lineup before the Mets leave Miami. But, of course when it comes to injuries and the Mets, you really never know. Of course, one of the things I was wondering was just how did Wright, who reported...

Learning Lessons From 2012 Slow Starters

We preach “practice excruciating patience!” Every year slow starters become an issue for fantasy owners scrambling to fix what ails their team – including me. Yes, I preach “practice excruciating patience!” all the time, yet I don’t even listen to that at times. Yes, I was guilty of shopping around Giancarlo Stanton in my friends league, trying to see if anyone would...

TV Ratings: Bucks Trounced By NFL Draft in Milwaukee (Also: N.Y. Mets, Boxing on NBC)

Today’s Mets DUH Moment: Problem With Bullpen Is Because Of Rotation

Terry Collins believes that part of the problem with the team’s bullpen is because the starting rotation is failing to go deep into games. He says it has been putting an incredible strain on all of his relievers. Ya think? Aside from Matt Harvey and Jon Niese, who combined are averaging over six innings per start, the rest of the rotation has been averaging 4.2 innings per start...
