Tonight’s loss was absolutely terrible. That doesn’t mean there weren’t any positives to take out of the game. But, the negatives definitely outweigh the positives–especially with the final score of the game and innings played…
Anyway, Chris Young, who hasn’t pitched since May 1, 2011, made his 2012 debut and was great. His fasted pitch tonight hit 85 MPH, which is obviously insanely low. Young has always been a good fly ball pitcher, which he did tonight. Young threw five innings, allowing two earned runs (one unearned) on six hits, while walking one and striking out tw...

AROUND THE WEB
Round 1: Gavin Cecchini – There are quite a few Met fans who are angry with this decision. The Mets could have gone after Hawkins or Giolito… but I think that Gavin actually fits pretty well into the Met’s farm system. Obviously, the Mets are not gifted with a plethora of SS options in their minors (the draft will prove this point) as Ruben Tejada is the MLB short-stop...
According to Adam Rubin of ESPN NY, Terry Collins said he is planning for Jason Bay to return from the disabled list for Tuesday's series opener in Washington, which will add to the outfield depth but also create challenges in terms of dividing up playing time.
The manager noted he will get a reprieve in filling out the lineup card when the Mets play six straight games in...
The Mets open a nine-game road trip tonight in Washington D.C. where they’ll begin a three-game set with the National League East leading Nationals. Just a half game separates the Mets and Nats in the standings, so the outcome of this series will have an impact on how the division looks going forward in June. First pitch is scheduled for 7:05 p.m. and the game can be seen on SNY...
How can a moment like this not bring a die-hard Mets fan to tears?
One of my all-time favorite sports movies is “A League of Their Own”, which chronicled the installation of women’s baseball during World War 2 in order to keep the nation’s spirits up while many of the professional men’s players were away fighting. From reading a little about the actual history, the movie...
Jon Rauch has debris in his elbow, and will miss this series against the Nationals, according to Adam Rubin ESPN New York.
The Mets will not currently place him on the DL.
Honestly, not a huge loss at this point. However, it’s one less pitcher in your bullpen, and Mets starting pitchers aren’t going to go 7+ innings everyday. So it’s critically important that Rauch gets healthy...
The Washington Nationals have dealt with a slew of injuries in the 2012 season, but as time goes on, the Nats continue to say in the mix despite some key offensive injuries to Jayson Werth and Wilson Ramos. Though Ramos will be gone for the rest of the season, Werth is scheduled to return for a playoff push.
If you look at the Nationals regular lineup now, it’s a whole lot better...
After taking Louisiana high school shortstop Gavin Cecchini 12th overall and Purdue catcher Kevin Plawecki with the 35th pick on the opening night of the draft, the Mets continued their selections Tuesday.
The Mets' selections at Nos. 35 and 71 overall came as compensation for losing Jose Reyes to the Marlins.
Here are the complete results from Day 2:
Rd. 2 (71st...
At this point in the season, everyone knows and loves the grinning goofball Gio Gonzalez, but another left-handed Gonzalez, who is lesser known to most Nats fans, joined the Washington Nationals pitching staff this week: reliever Michael Gonzalez.
Considered by some as one of the most desired free agents over the winter, Gonzalez has landed with the Nationals after recovering from...
At the conclusion of Johan Santana’s no-hitter against the Cardinals on Friday night, viewers were treated to rogue miscreant celebrating on the field with Mets players, who swarmed their pitcher following the 8-0 victory. The man jumped along the outer celebration circle in a Gary Carter jersey before he was brought to the ground by [...]

NEW YORK -- The New York Mets got another impressive pitching performance by their starter, but the St. Louis Cardinals countered with a better one, allowing their slumping offense to find itself in a late comeback win. The Cardinals bullpen then barely held off the Mets as St. Louis salvaged the final game of the four-game series with a 5-4 win Monday. The Mets trailed 5-3 after...

WASHINGTON -- Bryce Harper hit a bases-loaded single with two outs in the bottom of the 12th inning to give the Washington Nationals a 7-6 victory over the New York Mets on Tuesday night. Scott Hairston had given the Mets a 6-5 lead with a solo homer off Ross Detwiler (4-3) in the top of the 12th, but Washington scored twice in the bottom half to rally for the win. The Nationals...
