Prospect Pulse: Familia Answers Critics

Over the last two weeks I have seen my fill of criticism about Jeurys Familia. For some reason it seems as if Mets fans and bloggers want this guy to fail. Either that, or they are just trying to make themselves look smart by pointing out his short-comings, and predicting limited success for him as a major league prospect. The negative sooth-sayers are predicting at-best that Family...

Mets put INF Cedeno on DL, promote Valdespin

Updates with additional moves. The New York Mets have sent right-hander Jeremy Hefner back to the minors after he made his major league debut. Hefner was promoted from Triple-A Buffalo before the first game of Monday's doubleheader against San Francisco. Reserve infielder Ronny Cedeno was put on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to Saturday, because of a strain on the left...

Twenty memorable doubleheaders for the Mets

In honor of today’s single-admission doubleheader with the Giants, I’ve gone back and listed 20 memorable moments in doubleheaders from Mets history.  Usually these lists are 10 items long but with a doubleheader you get twice the fun!  This is neither exhaustive nor definitive, so if you have a moment from a twinbill worth mentioning – please leave it in the comments section...

Mets drop game one of twi-light double header

The New York Mets were defeated by the S.F. Giants in game one of  Monday’s twi-light double header: Miguel Batista started for the Mets, allowing six runs –  three of which were earned — on seven hits over 3 2/3 innings: Batista struggled to start the game allowing four straight batters reach base; including an RBI double by Pablo Sandoval and a solo-home run by Buster...

Post-Game: Giants 6 – Mets 1

Davis continues to struggle after going 0-4 today in the loss The Mets were defeated by a score of 6-1 in the first game of the double header.  Miguel Batista lasted just 3.2 innings allowing 6 runs on 7 hits, although only 3 were earned after the Ike Davis error. The Giants got off to a fast start against Batista scoring 2 runs in the 1st inning.  Pablo Sandoval extended his hit...

Is Tim Lincecum Back?

After surrendering 16 runs across his first 13.2 innings, Tim Lincecum finally settled down and got good results, allowing one run through five innings of work. The good: Lincecum struck out eight of the 23 batters he faced, and had them whiffing on his fastballs. Of course, swing-and-miss stuff hasn’t really been the problem for Lincecum so far. Through his first three starts...

Dickey, Wakefield shine in "Knuckleball!"

Last night, Squawker Lisa and I went to the Tribeca Film Festival for the premiere of the baseball documentary "Knuckleball!" The movie celebrates the tiny fraternity of MLB knuckleballers, with the main focus on the only two knuckleballers active in 2011 - the Mets' R.A. Dickey and the Red Sox' Tim Wakefield (who retired after the season).There probably wouldn...

Doubleheader Preview: Batista and Gee Look To Freak Out Lincecum and the Giants

After yesterday’s rain out, the Mets and Giants will double dip this afternoon as they will play two games starting at 4:10. In the first game Batista will get the nod against Lincecum while in the second game Bumgarner will start against Gee. In case you forgot about Saturday’s game the Mets were about to end their three game skid in the top of the ninth when a dropped fly...

Mets Quick Hits: The 5 Spot

1. Big Pelf continues strong start. He is mixing all of his pitches, especially his curve-ball. He is still throwing his splitter, but much less than before and as a result it’s much more effective. His new wind-up seems to help him push off better and throw with more power, which has resulted in the return on his signature hard sinker. 2. Frank Francisco is not a very good closer...

BP Unfiltered: Aubrey Huff Playing Second Base by Sam Miller

On Saturday, with the Giants out of position players, Aubrey Huff played second base for the first time in his career. It was an unexpected defensive alignment, but it was probably the Giants' best option. Or was it? Sure it was. OR WAS IT? Let's review.  Here is what the Giants' defense looked like in the ninth:  One man at every position. But here is another...

Dumb and Humber

The only thing worse than the Mets blowing a sure win when a fielder overran what should have been a game-ending pop would be if it occurred the same day yet another ex-Met threw a no-hitter.Fortunately, the Mets were able to rebound from Kirk Nieuwenhuis' ninth-inning misadventure and beat the Giants, with help from the Giants and manager Bruce Bochy. Bochy decided that the...

Theriot Battles Flu Bug

INF Ryan Theriot was back with the team Sunday after missing several games with the flu. He's expected to be available for Monday's doubleheader.


We probably should have saw all this coming when in the third inning on Saturday, Angel Pagan held at first base on a line drive to shortstop with two outs. Let me make this absolutely clear: Ramon Ramirez could be a complete bust, and Andres Torres could have his legs amputated next week. I'm glad the Mets made this trade. Note to Angel Pagan: Major League Baseball stadiums...
