The Mets dressed up as cowboys as they flew into Houston before they were swept by the Houston Astros. I posted many pictures of Mets players in their outfits. However, David Wright declined to be photographed in his costume by anyone that day. The Mets have finally revealed an image of David Wright in his Three Amigos outfit. He is joined by Mets bullpen catcher Dave Racaniello and Mike Nickeas.

The New York Mets won Sunday’s rubber-match game with the Arizona Diamondbacks on Sunday afternoon but lost their starting shortstop, Ruben Tejada, to a right quad injury in the process. Tejada was attempting to bunt for a hit in the fourth inning with the Mets up two runs and was successful…..sorta. The young shortstop seemed to tweak something while running down the line...

In eight relief appearances Elvin Ramirez had a 1.38 ERA in 13 innings pitched. The 24 year old right-hander is coming back after missing a year with arm woes.

The Mets on Friday announced that Batista will take Chris Schwinden's place in the rotation. Batista will be available out of the bullpen throughout this weekend, before starting Tuesday's game in Philadelphia.
That could last for any number of starts, with manager Terry Collins indicating he would like for Batista to stay in that role at least until Chris Young...
I like Chris Schwinden and think with patience he could be a back-end starter or AAAA backup for most teams. However if the Mets are going to try and stay relevant in the NL East and in the 2012 season they cannot continue to toss Chris out there every 5th day… at least not with the general quality of our other four starters. So is there a solution externally or internally...
Mets LF Jason Bay, who is eligible to come off the DL this week, is still a long way off from returning to the Mets lineup.
Mets manager Terry Collins said, "The other day his ribs were still pretty sore when he laughs or coughs." Collins further said that Bay will not come off the DL "for awhile."
Chris Young is scheduled to make a start in PSL on...
SNY analyst Bobby Ojeda came down HARD on the Mets new philosophy at the plate with regard to heir approach at the plate during tonight’s Mets pre-game show.
For those that missed it, Ojeda ripped into what he called “this business of taking so many pitches” that the organization has forced the players to adopt.
“SWING THE BATS!” he repeated throughout his respinse to...
Former pickle factory worker, postal clerk and poet Charles Bukowski once remarked:
”The problem with the world is that the intelligent people are full of doubts while the stupid ones are full of confidence.”
I think it takes some confidence to start a blog, put your real name on your opinions, allow others to share their thoughts on your ramblings and do it year after year...
In eleven save opportunities, the Mets bullpen now has five blown saves. That’s not a typo – Five blown saves to go with six saves for the season so far.
Every time that bullpen gate opens, no matter who emerges from it, the odds that they will protect any size lead is a little bit better than 50/50.
A revamped bullpen you say?
The Mets saw fit to expend 75% of their available...
The New York Mets return home tonight coming off of a road trip that left a really bad taste in the mouths of both the club and fan base. After sweeping the Florida Marlins, the Mets were crushed 19-8 before bouncing back and taking the series from the Colorado Rockies. Just as it seemed the poor performances were behind them once again, they were swept by the reigning MLB cellar...
Here at Mets360 we write about the team every day and we do it without access to the players. This has its advantages and disadvantages and it is silly to pretend otherwise. Having first-hand quotes gives stories a legitimacy that they would not have otherwise and frequently there is value to the insight given by players.
But we do not have to play favorites nor hope that player...
The Arizona Diamondbacks (13-13) have to feel pretty good about tonight’s game as fill-in starter Wade Miley takes the mound and he has yet to yield a run in two starts while the New York Mets (13-12) limp into Citi- Field having lost 3 straight and coming off of an 8-1 beating by the Astros.
First pitch is set for Friday, 7:10 pm ET at Citi Field in Flushing, New York.

This is a Mets blog, but also a baseball blog, and part of baseball is Mariano Rivera, the Yankees’ Hall of Fame closer. Mets fans remember Rivera because he snuffed out many games over the years, including Game 5 of the 2000 World Series.

NEW YORK -- With just enough runs to support him, Johan Santana finally got his first win of 2012 as the New York Mets held off the Arizona Diamondbacks 4-3 Saturday before 30,253 at Citi Field. The two-time Cy Young winner, for whom the Mets had been shut out in four of his first five starts, took advantage of a four-run Mets outburst in the fourth inning as he improved to 1-2...
