One night after Miguel Batista made the Brewers look impotent, the same team knocked around Dillon Gee pretty good, as they notched 7 ER in 5.1 IP against the interjection (h/t Doug Parker). In his last two starts, Gee has allowed 11 ER in 11 IP. For the season Gee has a 5.65 ERA in 43 IP, pretty much in line with his 5.51 ERA over his final 94.2 IP last year.
That seems … bleak.
However, it may not be as bad as it seems. Or, there may be a way to get more out of Gee than the Mets are currently. Gee has made seven starts this year – let’s sort them by Game Score, a metric devised by Bill James to rate a pitcher’s performance in a given start. Most starts earn in the range of 0 to 100, although it’s possible to exceed either goal post. Generally, a start with a score in the 50s or better is pretty good. Here are Gee’s starts ranked from best to worst.
4/16 – 69
5/4 – 59
4/28 – 54
4/10 – 43
5/9 – 37
5/15 – 27
4/23 – 26
We have three good starts, one okay start and three starts that r

Once again, sorry for the bad quality image. I took the photo of the SNY broadcast on my TV with my phone. By the way, I’m about to post tons of pictures of the Mets in hockey jerseys. Stay tuned…
Before yesterday’s game against the Reds, Terry Collins told reporters that catcher Josh Thole has been headache-free for several days.
The plan is now for Thole to begin a rehab assignment before he’s activated from the disabled list.
The Mets haven’t gotten much offensive help since Thole was sidelined, but the pitchers have said they like throwing to Mike Nickeas who has...
The New York Mets moved to 20-16 as they were defeated 8-0 on Tuesday night by the Milwaukee Brewers:
Dillon Gee started for the Mets and got rocked, allowing seven runs over 5 1/3 innings:
Travis Ishikawa killed Gee tonight. Ishikawa collected three-hits against the right handers, two of which were homeruns. The second of his two bombs — a three run shot — chased Gee from...
Mets catcher Josh Thole says he has been symptom free since Friday from a concussion he sustained a week ago and hopes to resume baseball activities soon.
Thole was scheduled to see a doctor Tuesday and wanted to take the test that determines whether a player is ready to return from a concussion.
Thole spent much of his time in bed since Philadephia's Ty Wigginton hit him in...
Mets got beaten all-around tonight in an 8-0 Brewers victory.
Well, it was not Francisco tonight.
There is no nice way to say this – we just did not have it tonight. The offense bit and Collins made one really intriguing decision… Oh, Dillon Gee was not on his game either.
So the aforementioned Gee started tonight and pitched into the sixth ineffectively – allowing...

At after getting pounded harder than Jenna Jameson in the late 1990's, Dillon Gee must ponder if his 1970's-porno-chin-mangina is throwing off his mechanics. There is not much to debate about Gee's performance tonight. It was a pitching **** storm that a struggling Brew Crew kept jamming tokens in to the Gee BP machine, until the game was quickly...

The “Leaders” section of Fangraphs is a wonderful place. It’s a smorgasbord of sortable data. One of the many, many useful functions of this data is that you can spot underrated players grouped among some of the more elite and well-known players in the game. Often the out-of-place player is there because of something like luck or a small sample size, but sometimes the...

NEW YORK -- Before Tuesday night's game, New York Mets manager Terry Collins said his starter, Dillon Gee, was a much better pitcher when he threw strikes and didn't fall behind in the count. But Milwaukee Brewers first baseman Travis Ishikawa had no problem with Gee throwing first-pitch strikes. He homered on the first pitch from Gee in the fifth and sixth innings to help...
