McPherson Ready to Make an Impact in the Majors

It’s been a whirlwind season for rookie Kyle McPherson. From starting the season on the minor league disabled list, to getting his arm back healthy in Double-A, then dominating in his short stay at the Triple-A level, McPherson saw the deserving jump to the Majors. The hard work that McPherson put in this challenging year has paid off. And he doesn’t plan on going anywhere. “It’s...

Puma: Jason Bay Will Not Be Cut This Winter Or In Spring Training

According to Mike Puma of the New York Post, the Mets will not cut slumped outfielder Jason Bay in neither the offseason or this spring said a team source.

Pirates Notebook: Rodriguez Settles; Club Makes History in Homers and Strikeouts

From the start of things on Tuesday in New York, it didn’t look as if the efficient Wandy Rodriguez was on the mound. He’s shown two different sides since the Pirates acquired him from Houston at the trade deadline. At the beginning he was trying to do too much and justify the trade resulted in him struggling. But once he got more comfortable, Rodriguez went on a solid streak...

Here’s A Thought… What If David Wright Doesn’t Want To Stay?

I keep hearing, “Will the Mets re-sign David Wright?” and “What will it take to keep David Wright?” and “How can the Mets not afford to bring back David Wright?” All very good, pointed and legitimate questions. Here’s some more: “What if David Wright wants to leave?” and “What’s keeping David Wright tied to the Mets?” Unquestionably, Wright is the face of...

MLB Rumors: Could New York Mets Trade Ike Davis To Boston Red Sox?

Ike Davis was unhappy with the New York Mets over possible trade rumors recently, and he made his opinion well known. Davis was not pleased with the fact that the Mets openly discussed the possibility of trading him this coming offseason. But if the Mets are likely to deal Davis, may I suggest that the Boston Red Sox place a well timed inquiry as to the first baseman’s...

Drinks are on Ike! – Mets 6, Pirates 2

  Imagine if Ike Davis had been hitting this way all along.  He very well may have had a 40 home run season and not been the subject of trade rumors.  Whatever the situation, he certainly seems to be making his case to stay, hitting two absolute bombs tonight, making him the first 30- home-run-hitting Met at CitiField since it opened.  Make a fuss about HIS off-field habits will...

Team Source: Zero Chance Will Be Released Or Asked To Compete For A Job

Confirming what Sandy Alderson has said in two previous interviews, ‘“There is ‘zero’ chance Jason Bay will be released this winter or asked to compete for a job in spring training,” according to what a team source told Mike Puma of the New York Post. “He’s a part of this team,” the source said. Bay is due $16 million next season and has a $17 million team option...

NEW YORK (AP) -- Ruben Tejada singled home the winning run with two outs in the ninth inning to give the New York Mets a 3-2 victory over Miami on Sunday, their seventh straight against the Marlins. Scott Hairston led off the inning with a single, took second on a passed ball by Rob Brantly, and was safe at third when pinch-hitter Jordany Valdespin beat the throw on what would have...

Mets 6, Pirates 2

Ike Davis connected twice and reached a career-high 30 homers, Jenrry Mejia pitched five effective innings for his first major league win and the New York Mets beat the plummeting Pittsburgh Pirates 6-2 Monday night for their fourth straight victory.

David Wright Bittersweet As He Closes In On Mets All Time Hits Record

Third baseman David Wright blasted a two-run homer in Sunday’s 3-2 win over the Miami Marlins and now stands just four hits away from breaking Ed Kranepool’s franchise record of 1,418 hits. However in light of the team’s poor second half, he’s finding it difficult to find any enjoyment from his personal achievements. “I think R.A. would agree with me but it’s tough...

Historically Distracting

I'm usually distracted when I watch a Mets game ... for one reason or another. But never so distracted that I don't really have a handle of what's going on. Well it took until Game 154, but it finally came to the point where I was so distracted, disinterested in what was going on that at two different points on Tuesday evening I looked up, noticed there was a baseball...
