(@TheHappyRecap) April 28, 2013   This was just posted during the game. Somebody take Jordany’s phone away… twitter.com/AVSNY/status/3… — Andrew Vazzano (@AVSNY) April 28, 2013   Those Smokers Quit commercials stress me out. I need a cigarette. — Mitch Rapp (@MitchNYM) April 28, 2013   If you’re a pitcher facing Ike Davis, I don’t see why you would ever throw a fastball for a strike. Ever. — Jared Diamond (@jareddiamond) April 28, 2013   Niesey baby had really settled in. Glad to see no I’ll effect from the comebacker the other day. — d’evON (@DevOnSports) April 28, 2013   Also, Lucas Duda just walked. In other words, it’s a typical day at Citi Field. The Dude just knows how to get on base. — Jared Diamond (@jareddiamond) April 28, 2013   Hamels couldn’t find the plate if it had spaghetti on it, and Welke gives him that? Awful. I know it’s the pitcher up, but awful — Metstradamus (@Metstradamus) April 28, 2013   Trying to figure out how Hamels walked three that inning when he got two strikeouts on balls out of the zone. — Jeffrey Paternostro (@jeffpaternostro) April 28, 2013   0 for 11 batting right handed this year, so of course, Galvis homerun #Mets — Christopher (@ludichrisspeed) April 28, 2013   Well that was about the least surprising thing that could have happened. #FreddyGalvis #BecauseMets — Chris (@tpgMets) April 28, 2013   Not trying! No care! And other Beltran insults! RT @thetomgreeneLagares glides in CF. — Josh Batelli (@Josh_Batelli) April 28, 2013   Oh man, someone needs to come remove my heart from my throat. Duda would’ve killed Lagares in that head on collision. — Mark Ethe (@TooGooden16) April 28, 2013   Really though, score some freakin runs. — Calise (@calise1024) April 28, 2013   The end of that inning brought to you by circ de soleil and not beltran/cameron — 213 Miles From Shea (@213MFS) April 28, 2013   Why, Keith? Why wouldn’t Lagares want to run into me? Is that a fat joke? — Faux Duda (@DucasLuda) April 28, 2013   Cole Hamels has crossed 100 pitches in the sixth. Not translating to winning, but Mets do drive up pitch counts. — Adam Rubin (@AdamRubinESPN) April 28, 2013   Justin Turner was on deck to pinch hit for Niese, but Juan Lagares makes final out, so Niese is back for 7th. #Mets 1, #Phillies 1, after 6. — Adam Rubin (@AdamRubinESPN) April 28, 2013   KNICKS KNICKS KNICKS — Ty (@tysim19) April 28, 2013   KNICKS!!!! — Matthew Falkenbury (@dailystache) April 28, 2013   Niese fell victim to that Buck error, now is leaving after 6 2/3 IP. Test for a struggling bullpen #Mets — Michael Baron (@michaelgbaron) April 28, 2013   Great start for Niese, too bad he got Johan’d by the offense. — E.J. (@TheHappyRecap) April 28, 2013   And this is why wins are not indicative of a pitcher’s talent. — Andrew Vazzano (@AVSNY) April 28, 2013   Hide the children! The #Mets bullpen is coming! — Michael Griffin (@literateartist) April 28, 2013   Scott Atchison pitched against the Philadelphia Athletics. — Josh Batelli (@Josh_Batelli) April 28, 2013   ******* unbelievable. I give up. — Mark Ethe (@TooGooden16) April 28, 2013   Unbelievable. Unfreakingbelievable.

Time To Release The Kraken: Send Ike Davis To The Minors

If Ike Davis drops any lower in the batting order, he’ll find himself in Triple-A Las Vegas anyway, so why not just send him there now? After another three-strikeout performance, Davis now has 29 Ks in 82 at-bats and is on pace for over 195 strikeouts. Back on April 17, I stated that Davis has shown himself to be nothing more than a platoon player at best throughout his major league...

Niese In Must-Win Start For Mets

Managers have tried for over a century, but there is no prescription drug capable of curing sick pitching. And, it’s not as if sick pitching is like the flu where it will go away in a couple of weeks. Sick pitching doesn’t go away easily, so it wasn’t as simple as dispatching Josh Edgin to the minor leagues. Robert Carson was disappointed in being sent down to the minor leagues...

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...

Phillies Complete Sweep Of Lifeless Mets With 5-1 Win, Despite Solid Outing By Niese

Boy, I’ll tell ya… Karma? It’s a ******** The Philadelphia Phillies beat the Mets 5-1 this afternoon at Citi Field to complete the sweep and send the Mets reeling to their fourth loss in a row. Jon Niese was the hard luck loser despite a solid performance from the Mets’ southpaw. He gave the the team more than they could have hoped for, but was let down by defensive miscues...

The @Mets Think Ike Davis is John Buck

#Mets catcher @johnbuck44 signs autographs during BP!! twitter.com/Mets/status/32… — New York Mets (@Mets) April 26, 2013 The people who run the Mets Twitter account are around the team everyday. Most of the times, it is members of the P.R. department that are doing the tweeting. The fact that they took the picture of Ike Davis signing autographs about 10 feet away and still...

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...

John Buck, Ike Davis and Mike Baxter Produce A Summer Breeze: No Offense Makes Watching The Mets Excruciating

Full disclosure: your intrepid columnist did not watch or follow all of last night’s (4/29) Mets game. He took an hour off to watch Revolution. That was probably the best move of the night, seeing as the game was near-unwatchable — fifteen innings worth of unwatchable. The Mets took a 2-1 lead into the ninth on the strength of a John Buck 4th inning home run. Bobby Parnell...

3 Up & 3 Down: Frustrated By The Phillies Edition

In last weekend’s edition of 3&3, I cautioned to watch out for a Dodger’s team that was struggling. That warning should have been extended to this weekend’s series with the Phillies as well. Against two teams that have been struggling, our Mets finished 1-5. Looks like our team is fast becoming a cure to another team’s slump. 3 UP Kyle’s Complete Game: We don’t like...

New York Mets: Top Five Early Season Frustrations

Baseball is a very long season; there will be many ups and downs throughout any given 162-game schedule. Now that we’re 23 games into the New York Mets’ regular season, we have seen a few things happen that we’d hope wouldn’t be the case. Can they turn around soon? Of course they can. Just because Ike Davis is struggling at the plate and the bullpen once again has one of...

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...

Mets’ Juggle Lineup Again Tonight Against Phillies

Terry Collins wanted to keep a set lineup, but that hope has long since gone.  Here it is, Game #21 and the Mets are on their 19th different batting order. Tonight against Kyle Kendrick as several new twists, beginning with David Wright hitting clean-up, Lucas Duda batting fifth and Ike Davis dropping to seventh. That seems logical; especially considering Wright is 9-for-18 against...
