Mets Merized Online:
Round Rock 9, Las Vegas 5
I am not a mean-spirited guy when it comes to baseball, honestly, but why is Carlos Torres on our AAA team? He was lit up again on Wednesday night for a grand total of nine earned runs over 4+ innings and it was just a really rough performance. He allowed five of those runs in the top of the first alone, capped off by a three-run homer by Jim Adduci. Anyway you slice it, if you can’t get out of the fifth inning, and you leave your team with a 9-0 defecit at the time…you did not do your job.
The 51s closed the game with five unanswered runs in the final four innings – highlighted by a three run bomb by Zach Lutz in the bottom of the sixth and a solo shot from Kirk Nieuwenhuis in the bottom of the seventh. The 51s scored plated a run via a Brian Bixler RBI single in the bottom of the ninth and then loaded the bases with two out, but Wilmer Flores grounded out harmlessly to end the threat.
The 51s did manage to put up a five-spot overall, which is always nic...

Rafael Montero Looks Intimidating (Photo by MMO Contributor Gordon Donovan)
Some people believe that we were put on this planet to serve a purpose. They believe that we were all put here for a reason. Well if that is the case, Rafael Montero was put on this planet for one reason: to pitch.
Montero was going through the Trenton Thunder lineup with surgical precision tonight, prompting...
Dwight Gooden should be known as the greatest pitcher ever for the New York Mets. He was simply tantalizing when he arrived as a rookie in 1984, and immediately became the most dominating pitcher in the entire league. His first three seasons are almost unparalleled and he topped it off with a World Series ring in 1986. There is a ton of excitement around rookie Matt Harvey at the...
The post Tonight’s Mets Meme: Matt Harvey Wants Some Offense appeared first on The Daily Stache.
While Ike Davis grabs all of the attention for duplicating his rough start from a season ago, almost no attention is being given to David Wright once again getting off to a terrific start. Unlike last year at this time, the Mets are under .500 and all of the buzz centers around Matt Harvey and John Buck. However, Wright deserves praise for getting out of the gate quick.
Once upon a time, not so long ago, the Mets had a top ten prospect named Zack Wheeler who was deemed the heir apparent to their oft-maligned rotation. It had to be Wheeler, who would assume the role of staff ace. Especially with the controversial trade of surprising knuckleballer, RA Dickey. It seemed unanimous that Wheeler, his high nineties fastball, and array of formidable...
Matt Harvey provided nine dominating innings of work, tossing a one-hit shut out, while Mike Baxter supplied the walk-off dramatics in the tenth as the New York Mets defeated the Chicago White Sox 1-0.
New York recorded it’s second shut-out of the season and improved to 3-2 in extra-inning affairs this season.
REAL DEAL HARVEY: Harvey set a career-high with 12 strikeouts, and...
TweetHow many times in Major League history has a starter pitched a complete game 1-hit shutout and failed to win the game? It happened tonight to Matt Harvey as he was masterful against the Chicago White Sox in a game the Mets eventually won 1-0 in 10 innings. Not only was Harvey pitching a no-hitter with 2 outs in the seventh inning, but he also had a perfect game as well before...

Jeremy Hefner’s overall numbers look poor this year (0-3, 4.34 ERA) but he’s pitched much better than his record indicates. He’s made five starts – and one horrid relief appearance – and three of them he’s pitched well enough to win. All three of those outings were Quality Starts and in them he threw 21 IP and allowed 4 ER.
The good news for Hefner is that two of his...

This had Harvey Haddix written all over it, but fortunately, the Mets were un-Mets-ian enough Tuesday night to pull out the victory, even if their pitcher didn’t get the win.
Matt Harvey went nine innings against the White Sox on Tuesday and struck out 12, with his attempt at a perfect game marred only by an Alex Rios infield single with two outs in the seventh. Despite Harvey...

In the wins are a totally useless statistic file you can add Matt Harvey’s start last night. He pitched a one-hit shutout with 12 strikeouts. Even had a perfect game going until Alex Rios dribbled out an infield single in the 7th. But because the Mets are the Mets, they were unable to score a run until the 10th leaving Mr. Harvey with a no decision for all his efforts. Needless...
