With the season rapidly and mercilessly winding down, this very well could be the last 12 games we see Scott Hairston in a Mets’ uniform.
For a season that has gone south with each agonizing moment begetting another one, one of the constants (specifically on offense) through all the turbulence this season has been the play of Hairston.
Hairston came up big on Friday in the Mets’ first win at Citi Field in what seems like a decade, as he went 2-4 with a home run and three RBI’s. Then again, Hairston has come up big the whole season, as he has been a valuable asset from the start while playing mostly off the bench. Hairston now has 18 home runs on the season to go with 51 RBI’s and a healthy .812 OPS.
However, this may be Hairston’s swan song with the Mets, as he probably does not fit into the Mets’ long-term plans (he is on a one-year $1.1 million deal). Also, considering the season he is enjoying, Hairston should be in line for a nice pay raise next year and he’ll likely be out of t...

The trade market has been much talked about with Ike Davis being the main topic of conversation. The Mets are looking to shop any...
Mets News and Notes:
Closer Frank Francisco was unavailable Saturday with a sore elbow and Mets manager Terry Collins doubts that he will have him available on Sunday. Jon Rauch had to close the game instead and was able to work around a three-run homer that sliced the lead to 4-3.
Jason Bay was back in the lineup Saturday and helped out the cause with a two-run homer. He...

Before last night’s game, Terry Collins told reporters that reliever Josh Edgin would make one more relief appearance this season before being shutdown for the season.
With the Mets already being pounded 11-1 by the Phillies, Edgin came on to relieve an ineffective Jeurys Familia in the ninth inning with the bases loaded. He plunks Chase Utley to force home a run, and then BOOM...
Thanks to a solid effort by Jon Niese and a surprising 11-hit outburst, the Mets defeated the Miami Marlins by the score of 7-3 on Friday night at Citi Field.
The win snapped the Mets’ nine game home losing streak, but they set the new franchise record of not scoring more than three runs in 16 straight home games.

R.A. Dickey earned his 19th victory with a strong performance, Jason Bay and Scott Hairston homered and the New York Mets barely held on in the ninth inning for their second straight home win, 4-3 over the Miami Marlins on Saturday.

Has anyone been listening to Mike Francesa absolutely kill the Mets on WFAN lately? Most likely many of you have, since Francesa garners a large audience, and rightfully so.
He is a knowledgeable sports personality that commands respect based on his reputation. But seriously, talk about something other than degrading the Mets.
This whole past week, Francesa has been...
The Miami Marlins are in for the weekend, and with them comes Jose Reyes. Now that the season is dwindling down to a precious few games, I ask: Would the Mets season been significantly different had they re-signed Reyes?
I don’t see how that is possible after last night.
With the way the Mets are heading, by the time they are competitive again Reyes will be on the downside of...

I never thought I’d say this, but thank goodness I was at the Yankee game tonight.
I didn’t have to suffer through the nine innings the Mets forced our fan nation to endure this evening. Nevertheless, tonight’s mess must be reviewed.

NEW YORK -- The New York Mets' march of misery continued at Citi Field on Thursday night, quickly hitting a new low against the resurgent Philadelphia Phillies. The Phillies pounded Mets starter Jeremy Hefner with six consecutive hits to start their 16-1 win during an eight-run, nine-hit first inning. They bookended that with a seven-run ninth inning, including a grand slam...
It has been a second half to forget for the Mets, and although they are out of playoff contention, they can still use the last few games of the season to play young guys, and possibly knock another team out of playoff contention.
