A lot of people deal with stress and hard times at work the same way, they go on vacation. Popular vacation spot in the Summer? Florida. So the Mets are going down south for three days in an attempt to get their season back on track. A week ago the Mets were one of the best teams in baseball. After last week, that feeling has evaporated. As quickly as that feeling disappeared, I’m sure it can come back. Tonight Chris Young plays stopper as he takes on Alex Cobb.
In his first start since coming back, Young pitched 5.0 innings allowing 6 hits, 3 runs, 2 earned while walking one and striking out 2. Chris Young has only made one career start against the Rays where he has allowed 7 ER over 3.1 innings of work. Very few Rays have stats against Young:
Matsui 3-5, 2 2B
The Mets bats will get a crack...
BEST OF MAXIM
Hey, I haven’t done of these in a while, but after I read something over at ESPN New York this morning, I just knew it was time for a new edition of MMO Fair or Foul…
Each week, ESPN senior baseball editor Matt Meyers and Mets blogger Mark Simon convene to discuss the upcoming week for the Mets. I think you’re going to find today’s discussion kind of interesting. Check...
It was a weekend to forget for most on the Mets and Bobby Parnell is among those who would like to erase the games from both his memory and his stat line. Parnell pitched in the last two games of the series and gave up runs in both outings. His line for the two games: 1 IP, 5 H, 3 ER, 0 BB, 2 K, 1 HR and a blown save.
The last two games were just a continuation of a recent stretch...
2012 TOPPS ARCHIVES JOHAN SANTANA
Seeing the square-shouldered Johan Santana on this 1971 Topps card explains everything.
I realize now that the whole Madoff affair was just a smokescreen. The Wilpons have actually been flush with cash all along, but they were diverting funds in the service of a special project.
The project? Send the rehabilitating Santana back in time to break...
Bobby Parnell is an enigma… He’s got the one thing you crave in closer a rocket for an arm. Consistently checking in at 99 mph and frequently topping 100, you would think the Mets had themselves someone they could rely on to step into the eighth or ninth innings to finish off the opposition and secure a win for the Mets. But Parnell has been anything but a sure thing and the...

Buffalo 4, Norfolk 2
By Sean Kenny
The Bisons offense managed to capitalize on the hits that they did scratch across, and the quartet of pitchers today proved effective in their 4-2 win against the Norfolk Tides
Dylan Owen started again today, and was effectively wild on the day, limiting the Tides to two runs on four hits while walking...
Will McHugh Be Heading To Buffalo Monday?.......
........Or Will It Be Wheeler?
Now that Jenrry Mejia has been moved from the starting rotation to the bullpen at AAA to be groomed for a relief role at Citifield in the not-too-distant future, there are presently only four starters in the Buffalo Bisons rotation: Matt Harvey, Jeurys Familia, Garrett Olson, and...
The New York Mets made it two-in-a-row against the Tampa Bay Rays on Wednesday evening with a 9-1 victory:
R.A. Dickey started for NY and was simply…awesome. In his most dominant performance of the season, the knuckle baller allowed just one-hit, while striking out a career-high 12 batters, en-route to becoming the first Major League starter to reach 10 victories on the year:
R.A. Dickey allowed only an infield single during his second career one-hitter and broke the New York Mets' record for consecutive scoreless innings in a 9-1 victory over the Tampa Bay Rays on Wednesday night.
Dickey (10-1) became the first 10-game winner in the major leagues and ran his career-best shutout streak to 32 2/3 innings before yielding an unearned run in the ninth...
This weekend was brutal. There’s no way around that. It looks like Terry Collins made the wrong move pitching Johan Santana on two days of extra rest. But, I can’t really criticize the move that much because at the time I truly believed that Collins made the right move. I was wrong. He was wrong.
So Friday night, the Mets pitching was terrible and their hitting was awful too...

Last week, the MLB held another edition of the June Amateur Draft, and the most relevant story was that Mark Appel didn't get drafted until the 7th pick when most people thought he was going to be the first pick overall. The first pick instead was shortstop Carlos Correa from Puerto Rico.
Now, the Pirates and Appel, who is being advised by Scott Boras face a complicated situation...
