Mets Merized Online:
Look at all those zeroes… Lefthander Jon Niese went all the way on a three-hit shutout as the Mets beat the Phillies 5-0 tonight at Citi Field.
Niese was absolutely brilliant in what was his best start of the season and limited the Phillies to just four baserunners in the game. It was his second career shutout and he had the Phillies dumbfounded all night long with a great assortment of fastballs, curves and changeups.
Niese induced a lot of groundballs in the game and struck out five, but what I loved most was the quick rhythm and pace he set – he was in complete control. What a shot in the arm for the team…
The Mets got on the board in the third on an RBI single by Daniel Murphy, but the biggest hit in the game was a bases loaded double by Niese in the sixth, who helped his own cause and drove in three runs.
It was feel-good win and snapped the Mets five game losing streak.
The Mets will have Daisuke Matsuzaka making his second start for them tomorrow night as he opposes left-han...

The New York Mets should cut Matt Harvey’s innings at 178.1, exactly what it is today after several media outlets reported a MRI revealed a partially torn partially torn ulnar collateral ligament in his elbow.

Are you excited for the final month of baseball, Mets’ fans?
Clearly that’s a rhetorical question.
With the Mets dropping six of their last seven games, the grittiness and fight that this team displayed shortly after the All-Star break, all but seems to have dissipated. The air has been let out of the balloon as far as this season goes.
Obviously, it’s not just the mounting...
I can’t even count how many times broadcasters, commentators or play-by-play announcers have started a sentence with: “The Mets, an organization known for pitching…” Really??? Perhaps it’s time to rethink exactly how knowledgeable the Mets are when it comes to pitching.
In one of the first scenes in the classic Field of Dreams, Ray Kinsella is driving a tractor, his daughter...
This brought a tear to my eye. Mets catcher John Buck takes a moment to console Matt Harvey in the dugout in what is a beautiful moment in sports. Matt Harvey is expected to have season ending Tommy John surgery in the near future, and given his bulldog mentality, the news has hit him as hard as it has ever hit anyone.

Fulmer was getting back into form after rehabbing from a torn meniscus which was injured earlier this Spring. He came back to throw in nine appearances, two for the GCL Mets and seven for the St. Lucie Mets, before a comebacker...

The New York Mets were delivered a substantial blow to their future when they found out that Matt Harvey has a partial tear of his UCL, an injury that may require the infamous Tommy John surgery. Surgery could put Harvey on the shelf for the entirety of the 2014 season and impact his effectiveness for even longer. The St. Louis Cardinals and Adam Wainwright can provide a solid road...
While certainly not the first time that an MLB team’s player-themed giveaway was awkwardly marred by the fact that the player was no longer a member of the team, but it nevertheless is amusing to note that on Tuesday, the very same day the New York Mets gave away 500 Marlon Byrd t-shirts, the team […]The post Marlon Byrd traded by New York Mets on Marlon Byrd T-Shirt Night (photo...
Every baseball season is crazy, and the crazy can never be completely summed up in one sentence. There’s just too much of it, in too many places, and no one wants to read that long of a sentence. But here’s a sentence that captures some of the 2013 crazy to date: on August 27, the […]
