Ramon Ramirez gets the Win but Jeremy Hefner earns a QS

The Mets used four pitchers last night and the one who likely did the worst job on the night – Ramon Ramirez – came away with the Win. That’s the way it goes sometimes because no statistic is perfect. The annoying thing is that many people will forgive the imperfections of certain stats, like Wins, yet are not willing to give other stats a chance because they focus only...

Pre-Game: New York Mets (63-70) @ Florida MarLOLins (59-74)

And some Mets fans out there think Terry Collins should be fired?  HA!  What a job by Ozzie Guillen last night.  MarLOLins Ace Josh Johnson, was mowing down Mets hitters all night and carried a 2-1 lead into the 9th inning.  But as what has become a custom, the closer automatically was brought in to the 9th inning, to add to a meaningless stat.  Johnson had only thrown 105 pitches...

Thank Goodness September Is Here

Jenrry Mejia returns this September As much as we all hoped the Mets would contend this season, we all had to know in the back of our minds that it was a long shot. They took us on a fun ride through the first half, but showed what they really were around the all-star break. Now it’s time to turn our attention to the September call-ups and the playoff chases down the stretch. In...

“Marvelous” Marv Throneberry’s 1962 season with the Mets

Many who followed the 1962 New York Mets remember Marv Throneberry, the first baseman who was anything but surehanded. Though Throneberry did not start the season with the Mets, he did get the bulk of playing time at 1B. On the day which would have marked his 79th birthday, (he passed away in 1994) lets go over his 1962 season and how it related to the rest of his playing career...

Game Preview: Mets @ Marlins

The Mets head down to Miami today to take on the Marlins in what will be an important series to stay out of the basement of the National League East. Going into yesterday’s game the Mets had a four game winning streak that was snapped even after a quality start of Jon Niese and the bullpen holding down the fort. Tonight R.A. Dickey takes the mound as he faces Nathan Eovaldi, who...
