Ok Yankees fans it is time to do the Wright thing. David Wright (Photo credit: Wikipedia) As New Yorkers it is out duty to guarantee that the Mets Captain, third baseman David Wright starts the 2013 All-Star Game at Citi-Field on July 16th. Not a Mets fan? So what you could be a Red Sox fan who calls the Big Apple home, doesn’t matter and you know it. It is your responsibility to VOTE FOR DAVID WRIGHT (twitter – #VoteWrightNow #VoteWright) by visiting MLB’s 2013 All-Star Voting Ballot. This is not only because Wright plays in Queens, where my father grew up, but he also is well deserving of the nod.

Yankees acquire former Met phenom Fernando Martinez

Tuesday was a great day for top Met prospects, but as Met fans know all too well, the results haven't always been quite so spectacular. Fernando Martinez, the great hope just a few years ago, was finally waived by the Mets last year. This year, he was DFA'd by the Astros on the same day they DFA'd Rick Ankiel.Just as the Mets learned with Ankiel that when you're not...

Duda apologizes to Harvey for misplay

Lucas Duda apologized after the game for a mix-up at first base which, at the time, cost starter Matt Harvey a chance at pitching a no-hitter on Tuesday.

Youkilis back to the DL

Kevin Youkilis has a herniated disc in his back and will undergo surgery to repair it on Thursday. He is expected to need about 10-12 weeks of rest and rehab, which puts the rest of his season in jeopardy. Youkilis was batting .219/.305/.343 with two home runs and eight RBIs in 28 games as A-Rod’s fill in. It’s another blow to the Yankees as Mark Teixeira was placed back on...

Zack Wheeler Lives Up To Hype

Zack Wheeler is here, so the New York Mets might as well get a real good look under his hood to see how the gears in his gut work. The Mets believe they have another young star pitcher in their midst, but were on verge of watching a scoreless debut unravel. At the time, a Mets’ 6-1 victory and doubleheader sweep of the first-place Braves seemed highly unlikely. WHEELER: Wins debut...

Teixeira lands on DL

It’s happened again. Mark Teixeira has been placed on the disabled list after playing in just 15 games, according to Sweeny Murti of WFAN. Teixeira left Saturday’s game early after he re-aggravated his troublesome right wrist. GM Brian Cashman and manager Joe Girardi said that Teix would likely need a week of rest before he played again, since an MRI revealed only inflammation...

Mets Should Enjoy Harvey And Wheeler For Now; Let Future Take Care Of Itself

Nobody can say with any certainty how the careers of Matt Harvey and Zack Wheeler will unfold. We’ve been bombarded with the comparisons to Tom Seaver and Dwight Gooden for both. Hell, Gooden even tweeted late last night about their future. Imagine how Twitter might have blown up if it was around when he played? WHEELER: Enjoy him now. (AP) Will they live up to the expectations...

Marcum Can’t Find Win Column as Mets Fall Short 5-3

The Mets lost in Atlanta by a score of 5-3 tonight at Turner Field, evening the 5-game series at two games apiece heading into tomorrow’s rubber match. Shaun Marcum pitched for the Mets and battled through the first few innings before being burned by a 3-run home run off the bat of Chris Johnson. Freshly acquired Eric Young led off the game with a single for New York, but the Mets...

Yankees take first of double-header

Hiroki Kuroda shut down his former team into the seventh inning, Ichiro Suzuki homered and drove in three runs, and the New York Yankees spoiled Don Mattingly's return to the Bronx with a 6-4 victory over the sloppy Los Angeles Dodgers on Wednesday in the opener of a day-night doubleheader. Lyle Overbay hit a two-run double against South Korean rookie Hyun-Jin Ryu (6-3) in the...

Zack Wheeler and Wil Myers: Buy Now?

Tuesday marks the big league debut of two of baseball’s most exciting prospects: Zack Wheeler and Wil Myers. Both Wheeler and Myers were high first-round talents drafted in 2009, Myers slipped to the third round due to perceived bonus demands. Despite, or perhaps because of, their elite amateur statuses both Wheeler and Myers were traded for established major league All-Stars before...

It’s Zack Wheeler Time

It’s the moment San Francisco Giants fans have dreaded since that fateful day in 2011: Right-handed pitching prospect Zack Wheeler has been promoted to the big leagues and will make his first start of his MLB career on Tuesday evening. On July 28, 2011, the hurler became the property of the New York Mets when the Giants traded the sixth overall pick of the 2009 amateur draft during...

The Tampa Bay Rays (37-35) will travel to New York to face off against the New York Yankees (39-32) for a four-game series beginning on Thursday.
