Mets Merized Online:
Congratulations to this week’s
MMO Player of the Week…
Through the use of the scorecard, let’s take a look at how Daniel Murphy did during the week ending Sunday, July 22nd:
Murphy showed us again why he is a valuable piece to our club. Aside from David Wright he is probably the next best pure hitter we have on the team. Murphy has rebounded from his skid in a very strong way and has shot back over the .300 mark where he seems to make his living in recent years. It appears that his slump was just that, a small bump in the road for the young kid.
Gameday Goods is proud to sponsor this week’s Mets Merized Online Player of the Week, Daniel Murphy. Daniel had a great weekend while going 9 for 11 and improving his average to .306 for the season. Remember to get your Mets Gear at Gameday Goods especially this Mets Snapback.

The Mets selected Matz, a lefty fireballer in the second round of the 2009 draft. Because of questionable free agent practices, the Mets were without a first round or compensation round pick and Matz was left to be the team’s top pick for the year. Matz was a risky pick, as people questioned his mechanics and thought he was sure to be an injury risk but the Mets, hoping to...
As expected, the Mets have announced that they have optioned Lucas Duda to Triple-A Buffalo.
Duda was batting .241/.335/.391 in in 89 games with a dozen home runs and 44 RBI. Duda drew 42 walks and struck out 94 times in 307 at-bats this season, almost a third of the time.
The big guy was mired in a horrendous slump in July that forced Terry Collins to start using other options...
Mets top prospect Zack Wheeler was shelled for ten hits and six runs (five earned) in four innings today in Binghamton where the B-Mets were hosting the New Britain Rock Cats.
For Wheeler it was his second straight bad outing. On July 20, the right-hander was lit up for eight earned runs in 3.2 innings by Bowie, having allowed six hits and three walks.
It was rumored yesterday that...
Oh no, not another Joe D. game recap…
Embrace the horror my friends. Nothing we do now will change anything. The time to strike was when the Mets were winning and they needed a general manager who could sustain that glorious run when the Mets never spent a day under ,500 and staked a solid claim on the National League Wild Card. You snooze, you lose. Sandman fell asleep at the...

Look, I’m aware that the Nationals are a very good team with excellent pitching, but ONE GAME isn’t too much to ask is it?
Stephen Strausburg looked dominant today in the Nationals 5-2 win over the Mets, their second consecutive 5-2 victory over the Mets. In a nod to consistency, this is the third straight game against the Nationals that the Mets have scored two runs. At...
Nationals 5, Mets 2: Ho-hum, just another series win for the Nats. Gio Gonzalez makes up for last time out against R.A. Dickey, dominates Mets. Sorry, Mr. Met.
Gio's line: 7.0 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 2 BB, 4 K, 87 pitches, 53 strikes.
Oh deer! Adam LaRoche hits a bomb into the upper deck. Video here.
Bryce Harper: 0-4, 3 K vs. Dickey...
