Found April 30, 2013 on Mets Merized Online:
Las Vegas 9, Reno 5  D.J. Mitchell‘s last start was marred by bouts of wildness, but tonight’s outing was much better, as he did not allow a run over the first five innings. He dodged in, and out of trouble a few times, including a bases loaded no out jam in the second inning. After two singles and a walk, Mitchell buckled down and got a pop out, strikeout, and a ground out to end the inning. He ran into trouble again in the sixth inning, and was eventually lifted in favor of Sean Henn. The bullpen struggled once again, and Greg Peavey was the main culprit tonight. Peavey, allowed three runs to score in the seventh, and what was a 9-0 lead heading into the sixth, quickly became 9-5 through eight. Justin Hampson came in and pitched a spotless ninth to shut the door. On offense, Andrew Brown and Wilmer Flores once again led the way. Brown tallied two more RBI, added a double and a triple, and leads the 51s with 21 RBI and a .360 batting average. Flores also had two hits, including a d...

Ike Davis highlights Mets struggles against relief pitchers

It’s always tough to lose but the way the Mets have been defeated the past two nights approaches soul-crushing territory. Two nights ago it was lose the lead in the ninth, take the lead in the 15th and lose the game in the bottom of the inning. Last night it was take a shutout into the ninth and then give up two runs to lose the game. To the woeful Marlins, who were playing...

Mets Wrap: Anthony Recker, “Hefner Didn’t Deserve This.”

Just when they needed him most, Jeremy Hefner pitched a lights-out game for the Mets with eight shutout innings, but was betrayed by another ninth-inning collapse in a 2-1 loss to the Miami Marlins, which extended their losing streak to six games. Pinch-hitter Chris Coghlan led off the ninth with a single, took second on a passed ball by catcher Anthony Recker, advanced to third...

Mets Frustrate Yet Again In Loss To Marlins

What can be said about last night’s Mets game that hasn’t already been said about my high school prom. It was long, nobody could score and it turned out to be a huge waste of time. They say hindsight is 20/20, but my foresight in this one wasn’t so bad either. There were a few poor decisions that were easily predictable. I’m still flabbergasted by Terry Collins’ inexplicable...

Mets' Wright sits out at Miami with stiff neck

New York Mets third baseman David Wright was held out of the starting lineup Monday night at Miami because of a stiff neck, and said he hoped to miss only one game. Wright said neck spasms began to bother him during Sunday's loss against Philadelphia, and he felt worse when he woke up Monday. ''It's not something I'm worried about,'' Wright said before...

DeGrom Rocked In A Home Run Derby Loss For Binghamton

Akron 7, Binghamton 5 A promising pitching duel turned into a home run derby at Binghamton’s NYSEG Stadium, as Akron flexed more muscle than the B-Mets in a 7-5 Aeros victory. B-Met starter Jacob deGrom and Paolo Espino traded zeroes through three scoreless inning to start the contest. DeGrom cruised in the early going allowing only a lead-off single to Jesus Aguilar in the second...

Old Time Mets: Remembering Ray Sadecki

Anyone out there remember Ray Sadecki? He was a starter/reliever for the Mets from 1970-1974 and was the kind of pitcher the Mets could actually use right now because of his effectiveness in that role. They could have also used Sadecki in 2007 or 2008, which is when I chose his name on the LoHud blog when John Delcos was running the site before Howard Megdal. Those two seasons will...

DeGrom Gets Rocked For Five Runs In 7-5 Binghamton Loss

Akron 7, Binghamton 5 The Akron Aeros used the aid of four home runs to beat the Binghamton Mets, 7-5, Sunday afternoon at NYSEG Stadium. After both teams were held scoreless for three innings, Akron cracked the scoreboard with two runs in the fourth inning against Jacob deGrom. In the bottom of the fifth inning, Danny Muno tripled home Cesar Puello to put the B-Mets on the board...

Terry Collins Feels Guilty About Johan Santana’s Injury

Johan Santana will always be remembered by Mets fans.  He has a certain spot in the history of the franchise for throwing the club’s first and only no-hitter (until Matt Harvey throws one). Not a single Mets fan regrets the decision that Terry Collins made to keep Santana in.  He threw a career high 134 pitches in the game and was far from perfect, but he got what everyone wanted...

With Terry Collins Already On The Hotseat, Is Wally Backman On Speed Dial?

After getting off to a 7-4 start to the season, the Mets have now lost nine of their last 12 games and aside from when Matt Harvey and Jon Niese are on the hill, you don’t get the sense that the Mets will win that day. Part of the problem was a middle to back end of the rotation that was ill-conceived from the beginning. The ever so reliable R.A. Dickey was replaced with Shaun...
