Mets Merized Online:
Our Minor League Editor Pete Shapiro, hooked up with Kevin Kernan of the New York Post and together they had a great interview with Mets 2011 first rounder Brandon Nimmo on Wednesday at the Hudson Valley before the Cyclones game.
If you really want to know the caliber of person and player Brandon is, you need to listen to this heart-to-heart discussion as the three of them review Nimmo’s journey with the Brooklyn Cyclones this season and they talk about the highs and the lows, the struggles and the accomplishments.
It was interesting to hear him tell when it all started to click for him after getting off to slow start to the season where he was batting .180 at the halfway point.
Brandon Nimmo gets his strength from his family who he leans on for support and his faith which guides him along his journey.
He spends a lot of time raving about the organization as far as his teammates as well as Michael Fulmer, Matt Harvey, Tyler Pill and Zack Wheeler. It’s a great listen, so I hope you ...

My first post on Terry Collins was fun. It generated a bunch of intelligent comments and, if one chooses to read them in the order they were written, we created a wonderful read on both the Mets and TC.
My past administrator blog role prevented me from developing relationships with readers that commented and being freed from that here is a Godsend. I was never a great blog administrator...

Last night, rookie pitcher Matt Harvey was very effective if not dominant and he picked up his fourth win of the season for his effort. what has made Harvey really stand out for me since being promoted, is how serious and all business he is on the mound. It helps him keep an even keel even on nights where he may not have his best stuff. He doesn’t give into the batters and adapts...
It only took the New York Mets bullpen till late August to finally put things together and get on a roll. Sure, the team is sitting in sole possession of 4th place in the NL East (18 1/2 games behind the Washington Nationals), but when you’re hot, you’re hot. The Mets, coming off their first four-game winning streak since June 27-30, dropped the series finale to Philadelphia...

Jenrry Mejia returns this September
As much as we all hoped the Mets would contend this season, we all had to know in the back of our minds that it was a long shot. They took us on a fun ride through the first half, but showed what they really were around the all-star break. Now it’s time to turn our attention to the September call-ups and the playoff chases down the stretch.

The Mets head down to Miami today to take on the Marlins in what will be an important series to stay out of the basement of the National League East. Going into yesterday’s game the Mets had a four game winning streak that was snapped even after a quality start of Jon Niese and the bullpen holding down the fort. Tonight R.A. Dickey takes the mound as he faces Nathan Eovaldi, who...
The New York Mets just missed matching their longest win streak of the season. Having R.A. Dickey on the mound against the Miami Marlins might help them start another run.
Dickey can move into a tie for the major league wins lead by continuing his dominance over the Marlins on Friday night.
