Watch Jeff Francoeur incite bench clearing because Phillies batters are slow to bat

Hansel Robles put it simply: The batter was in the box, the umpire pointed at him to pitch, so he pitched.— Jared Diamond (@jareddiamond) August 26, 2015But...basically it now seems umpires have the power to say a pitch doesn't count. @AdamRubinESPN Umpires hand not raised, Ruf in the box. Don't blame Robles ... he did nothing wrong.— Michael Pruser (@ProspectCincy) August 26...

Red-hot Daniel Murphy, Wilmer Flores’ motivational tears, Hansel Robles’ wacky line

Daniel Murphy may be in the final stretch of his career with the Mets but if so, he’s going out with a bang. In his last nine games, he has a .385/.415/.641 line while bouncing all around the infield, even dusting off his first baseman’s mitt with the back injury that has slowed Lucas Duda here lately.

Hansel Robles Shined In Relief, Mets Took Notice

Hansel Robles Shined After Shifting To The Bullpen

Over the last eight weeks of the minor league season, a new name surfaced as part of the stable of New York Met pitching prospects. Actually, to be accurate, it’s a name many Met fans already know.

Mets Minors: Hansel Robles is someone to watch

Advancing to Port St. Lucie in 2013 he became more forgettable.  His 3.72 ERA and 66 Ks over 16 games and 84.2 IP was fine, but hardly...
