Marlon Byrd /Rfis having himself a fine season (.283/.844 with 21 HR), but that's pretty much it. Ex-Phillies prospect, Travis d'Arnaud/C, is now splitting time behind the plate with John Buck, but is only 2-18 so far in his MLB career.Mutts Arms:ERA - 3.76 (11th)WHIP - 1.29 (13th)The Mets bullpen has been weakend with closer Bobby Parnell on the DL. LaTroy Hawkins has taken over save opportunities, but he's not sure thing. Dice-K is a new addition to the rotation, because of an injury to Jeremy Hefner. Matt Harvey would be the favorite for NL Cy Young if not for Clayton Kershaw...
BEST OF MAXIM

The Phillies beat the Mets, 2-1, at Citifield on Monday night behind a stellar outing from Cliff Lee and a two-run triple by Cody Asche. Lee was brilliant against a depleted New York lineup that was without third baseman David Wright, earning his 11th win of the season. He was economical with his pitches...
Monday was a dour day for the Mets and their most talented pitcher as 24-year-old Matt Harvey is likely done for the season with a ligament tear in his throwing arm. The tear likely means Harvey will need Tommy John surgery which could sideline the ace for the rest of this season and all next year.
Meanwhile the Phillies’ best pitcher this season took the mound Monday. He dazzled...

Photo Credit: Andrew Gillen Coming off the best homestand they've had since before the July All-Star Break, the Phillies hit the road, where they've been less than stellar. Lucky for them, Cliff Lee was the first started tabbed for the New York series. However, rookie Zack Wheeler stood in there...
Another game, another walk off win. The Phillies have won three straight games after coming back late and winning in walkoff fashion. First with Michael Young on Wednesday, Domonic Brown Thursday and Chase Utley last night, the Phillies have certainly been exciting. Tonight they will look to build off of...
The Mets kick off a three game series at home against the division-rival Philadelphia Phillies. Travis d’Arnaud gets his first (of hopefully many) cracks at making the Phillies regret trading him. First pitch is scheduled for 7:10 p.m.

Tonight's game against the Arizona Diamondbacks got busy in a hurry. Phillies starter Ethan Martin opened the game with two quick outs against leadoff hitter Tony Campana and two-hole hitter Adam Eaton. But those were the only outs Martin would record in this one. Beginning with Diamondbacks slugger Paul Goldschmidt...
The battle for third place is on! Before the weekend the Mets were in the driver seat for third place but the Tigers did what the Tigers do. Yesterday the Tigers jumped out to an early lead against the Mets but the Mets came back to take the lead 3-2. The Tigers then nudged forward making it 4-3 and the score stayed like that for a while until the top of the ninth where the game...

While a fellow up-and-coming starter has taken the Big Apple by storm, rookie Zack Wheeler is starting to garner some well deserved acclaim, too.
Seeking a third straight win, Wheeler takes the mound opposite Cliff Lee as the New York Mets open a four-game set against the visiting Philadelphia Phillies on Monday night.
After posting a 5.06 ERA in his first three starts, the 23...
