When Scott Hairston went into the off-season after his first year with the Mets last season, the club was not shy regarding its willingness to bring him ba
During blogger day at Citi Field on Wednesday, the Daily Stache spoke to Hairston regarding his decision to re-sign with the Mets and also what it means to lose a guy like Jason Bay to the disabled list.
“I wanted to sign with...
Dillon Gee took the hill to square off against the Rockies rookie hurler Guillermo Moscoso in the second game of the three game set in the Mile High City. Gee, coming off an awful start, came to play tonight, hurling seven frames allowing four runs (3 earned) on seven hits while punching out seven, picking up his second win of the year. Moscoso however didn’t enjoy the...
Baseball America’s Prospect Hot Sheet for the period April 20-26 has Mets top prospect RHP Matt Harvey ranked #6 and 3B Wilmer Flores gets an honorable mention.
Regarding Flores BA Writes:
For as long as he’s been around, it’s easy to forget that Wilmer Flores is still just a 20-year-old in the high Class A Florida State League. Now playing third base for the Mets,...
Jon Niese gave the Mets seven strong innings today and Captain Kirk put the exclamation point on a rally in the ninth for a Mets win this afternoon, 3-2.
Run support is key for starters, and for a while, it looked like today would be another wasted strong start by a Mets starter. Jon Niese started and pitched for seven effective innings, allowing only 4 hits and 2 ER over...
The 2012 Mets need Ike Davis and Lucas Duda to be healthy and productive in the middle of the order to have a successful season. Unfortunately, both of these players started off the year hitting poorly. Here were their numbers through April 13th:
ID – 1-23 with 9 Ks in 26 PA (34.6 K%)
LD – 3-25 with 9 Ks in 28 PA (32.1 K%)
The Mets were able to stay afloat thanks to surprisingly...
Collins Pushing all the right buttons so far!
Today's Mets Starting Lineup vs Rockies - Game 22 :
Note: If you notice , Collins is using the Lefty/Righty Approach against the Lefty Moyer. This makes it harder to match-up later in the game.
Ok, I’ve reached into the Ask Petey mailbag, but since I was tightly gripping a Labatt’s Blue, I only managed to pull out two questions. Oh well, I’ll try to do better next time. Or I could make up a few questions from imaginary readers….hmmmm maybe I will. Desperate times call for desperate measures.
Petey: Our first Mets minor league mailbag question comes from little...
Jon Matlack’s career record of 125-126 may be as mediocre as you can get, but Matlack was a much, much better than average major league pitcher. In fact, he was one of the very finest lefthanded pitchers ever developed by the Mets’ organization. His other career marks – 3.18 lifetime ERA (better than Steve Carlton, who was considered the best lefty of his generation), 97 complete...
The New York Mets allowed a total of 4 runs against the Miami Marlins in their sweep of the floundering fish this week. Tonight, the club multiplied that 4-run total by 4 and added 3, just for good measure.The New York Mets (11-9) dropped the series opener against the Colorado Rockies (10-9) 19-8 tonight behind atrocious pitching and a few defensive mishaps. After the Mets jumped...

Kirk Nieuwenhuis smoked a game-winning single in the bottom of the ninth inning to lift the New York Mets over the Miami Marlins, 3-2, to sweep the series.

As their first manager, Casey Stengel, might have said: Simply Amazin'.
The New York Mets are the subject of a three-day academic conference taking place at Hofstra University.
The conference takes a look at the team's 50-year history in New York. The Mets were created just four years after the Brooklyn Dodgers and New York Giants fled to California in 1958.
Scott Hairston of the Mets hit for the cycle last night, and he did it by the end of the sixth inning. That's pretty impressive. What else is pretty impressive is that Hairston's Mets lost the game....18-9. The last team to lose when they had a player who hit for the cycle was when Kelly Johnson hit for the cycle in July 2010, and the Diamondbacks lost 7-4 to the Giants...
The Mets added a pair of potentially useful pieces signing infielder Brad Emaus and outfielder Fred Lewis to minor league deals.
Lewis plays all three outfield positions, and has a solid .780 OPS career against right-handed pitchers. Put another way: if the Mets were looking to set Scott Hairston up in a platoon in left or right field, Lewis would be a perfectly reasonable guy...
