Found September 18, 2013 on New York Mets Report:
It was a situation Josh Satin has experienced countless times, even before he did so tonight with the New York Mets. “Incredible,’’ Satin said before a crowd of notepads and cameras. “It was one of the moments you kind of dream about, especially for me, a guy who has been in the minor leagues for the better part of five years. SATIN: Comes through in clutch. (AP) “When I take batting practice, I say it,’’ he continued before taking the role of an imaginary play-by-play announcer. “Bases loaded, down by one run, two out in the ninth …’’ What would happen next, after battling off four straight sliders from Sergio Romo, Satin had a hunch. “After he threw me four straight sliders I had a feeling in the back of my mind he would throw me a fastball,” said Satin. Romo did and Satin ripped it to left to drive in two runs that carried the Mets, who for seven innings had been listless against Matt Cain, to a 5-4 victory over the champion Giants. “It’s easy say, `We’re not supposed to hit

Ruben Tejada Breaks Fibula After Colliding With Andrew Brown

Terry Collins announced that Ruben Tejada suffered a broken right fibula, and will miss the remainder of the season. Tejada injured his leg while hustling to catch an Angel Pagan pop-up in shallow left field and colliding with outfielder Andrew Brown with one out in the top of the ninth. Tejada tripped over the sliding Brown, landed hard, and was slow to get up. He went back...

Matt Harvey's interview with Dan Patrick incredibly awkward

MMO Exclusive Interview: Zack Wheeler On His Rookie Year In The Big Leagues

Tonight Zack Wheeler takes on the team that drafted him for the second time this season. The first time the 23-year old faced the Giants, he was publicized as the “Robin” to the leading Cy-Young candidate and NL All-Star Game Starter Matt Harvey; perhaps unfairly so. Since that initial outing at AT&T against his former franchise; much has changed. Harvey and a pitching rubber...

Wright Expected To Return This Weekend In Philly

Terry Collins told reporters that he expects David Wright to be activated from the disabled list when the Mets play the Phillies this weekend. Over the weekend I wrote that I’d bet anything Wright would be back in the lineup for the Giants series. Obviously I’m much better off playing mobile slots than I am at betting on when players return from injury. Wright continues...

Harvey will try to rehab elbow instead of surgery

Matt Harvey will try to rehab his injured right elbow without reconstructive surgery, a move the young ace hopes is going to keep him on the mound for the New York Mets next season. Tommy John surgery remains a possibility. Harvey will soon begin a strengthening and throwing program designed to last as long as six to eight weeks. If he feels pain or other symptoms that hinder his...

Will The Mets Tread A Rocky Road This Offseason?

As the season draws to a close, Met management may be flicking the occasional glance west toward Denver, home of a team with a similar won/lost record but with notably dissimilar team stats. While the Mets sit in the middle third of the league in both runs scored (10th) and pitching (8th), the Colorado Rockies present a study in contrasts sitting 3rd in the league in scoring but...

Matt Harvey Returns To Dan Patrick Show And Apologizes

Mets ace Matt Harvey rejoined the Dan Patrick show this morning and apologized for yesterday’s awkward interview, when he talked about his Qualcomm promotion and that’s it. He told Patrick that he had a lot on his mind and was on his way to the doctor during his call and was a bit flustered. “That wasn’t me at all yesterday,” Harvey said. “I was thinking about it all...

Matt Harvey is only here to talk about Qualcomm, Dan Patrick. Not Tommy John surgery

New York Mets pitcher Matt Harvey gave an incredibly uncomfortable injury to Dan Patrick on Wednesday. It was so bad I was literally cringing while listening to it in the same way I cringe when watching that scene in “Swingers” where Mike calls Nikki and leaves like eight straight messages. It was that painful. Harvey […]

Game Preview: Mets @ Phillies

The Mets dropped a close one yesterday to close out the homestand against the Giants by the score of 2-1. Tonight they travel down 95 to the sandbox that is Citizen’s Bank Park (which I finally went to this year and it is as small as it looks on television, but the concourse is nice and open). Anyway, Daisuke Matsuzaka will face off against Cole Hamels. Daisuke Matsuzaka is 1-3...

Have No Fear, Mets Fans, Matt Harvey Is Actually A Robot

Mets fans are generally an unhappy, anxious people. Which makes sense. They've been conditioned to feel that way, what with Steve Phillips, Ponzi schemes, and well, Matt Harvey's elbow. For now, though, things seemed okay. Harvey, the lover of parties and owner of a 48-hour rule, was going to try and rehab his elbow, hoping to avoid surgery and a year on the shelf. Which...
