New York Mets Report:
New York Mets
One had to wonder what the New York Mets were thinking when they said Jon Niese would undergo an MRI on July 4. The exam was re-scheduled until Monday because the doctor was, now get this, on vacation for the holiday.
Couldn’t somebody have figured that out ahead of time?
NIESE: Should the Mets shut him down? (AP)
So, it won’t be determined until Monday whether Niese’s slightly torn rotator cuff will need surgery. Sending Niese to the mound without surgery or at least a longer period of rest with rehabilitation can’t be a good idea.
Sure, you want the Mets to be competitive, but not at the expense of Niese’s future.
With the way things currently are in the Mets’ rotation, they might need another starter because Shaun Marcum’s durability is in question, but its more prudent to dip below to Triple-A Las Vegas than it would be to go back to Niese.
Of course, Niese wants to pitch, but remember this is a transition year with little expected of the Mets. They are fourth in the NL East and...

The New York Mets recalled first baseman Ike Davis from Triple-A Las Vegas.
Davis, demoted on June 10 due to a poor start to the 2013 season, was batting fourth against Milwaukee on Friday night.
Davis was hitting .161 with five home runs and 16 RBIs in 55 games before being sent down. He made some mechanical adjustments during his stay in the minors and batted .293 with seven...
New York Mets pitcher Matt Harvey was photographed for ESPN the Magazine’s Body Issue, which is due out next week. The second-year pitcher has dominated this season, going 7-2 with a 2.27 ERA in 123 innings. His hot start was enough to make him a person of interest for ESPN’s shoot, and the magazine sent [...]

Updating this debut post by our newest addition Rob Costello, there’s this recent tweet by Ken Rosenthal who says that a team source told him that the Mets would need to be blown away to trade Bobby Parnell by this year’s trade deadline.
That would make perfect sense and the reasons are outlined quite nicely by Rob below.
This whole notion of trading...

On Friday night, the Mets hammered the Milwaukee Brewers, defeating them by the final score of 12-5. The Bad News Brewers committed three errors on the field and a number of mental errors on the bases. Despite the Brew Crew’s valiant effort to become the butt of David Letterman’s next Top Ten list, it was two Mets players who really stood out. One went 0-for-6 but took...
As we approach the trading deadline, anybody who has a keyboard will be coming up with trade ideas for the New York Mets. The truth is, I try to stay away from the “rumor” machine because I feel like I’ve learned my lesson with getting enthralled in things that never actually happen.
The Mets are in an interesting position because so much of what they do moving forward depends...
NEW YORK (AP) -- Cliff Pennington hit an RBI single with two outs in the 15th inning and the Arizona Diamondbacks, boosted early by Gerardo Parra's bunt double, finally outlasted the New York Mets 5-4 in a back-and-forth classic Thursday to split an exhausting series at Citi Field.
Arizona scored in the final three innings but couldn't close out the feisty Mets until Brad...
Following a promising debut, top prospect Zack Wheeler hasn't been quite as sharp for the New York Mets.
Perhaps a date with one of the worst teams in baseball can boost his confidence.
The Mets will try to begin a nine-game road trip in positive fashion Friday night when they send the hard-throwing right-hander to the mound against the lowly Milwaukee Brewers.
While he hasn...

Independence Day is a day for great traditions. Backyard barbecues, Twilight Zone marathons, and baseball. But I find it distressing that, with no warning, SNY decided that instead of baseball, they were instead going to air the Twilight Zone marathon.
Oh, that was a baseball game on SNY? Yeah, you could have fooled me. Because that was nothing short of bizarre that we witnessed...
