After last night’s suspended play, Terry Collins explained that he removed Jeremy Hefner from the game after the sixth because he was excited for him.
“When he came off after the sixth, he could have probably started the seventh inning, because he was feeling OK,” Collins said. “But I was so excited that he pitched so well after he’s been so down about...
*** GAME SUSPENDED ***
Right-hander Jeremy Hefner started for the Mets and delivered a gutty performance, allowing just two runs on three hits in six solid innings of work. Hefner walked just two batters and struck out seven in his 94 pitch performance. I had a terrible feeling in my gut when Terry Collins decided to end Hefner’s night with the 3-2 lead and leave the last nine...
With a day off to lick their wounds, the Mets return to the diamond to face the division-leading Braves for the first time in 2013. First pitch slated for 7:10 PM.

“Hefner is the Anti-Harvey.”
I caught that in Adam Rubin’s Morning Briefing today on ESPN New York.
I guess if you go by their won-loss records you could certainly make that claim, but it’s not that simple.
With all the latest reports now confirming what we’ve all been waiting for since Carlos Beltran was shipped off almost two years ago, the question now is:

Jeremy Hefner lasted just four innings and dropped to 0-5 on the season as the Mets took it on the chin in an 8-2 loss to the Cubs on Saturday at Wrigley Field.
Hefner allowed four runs on five hits and three walks and quickly put his team in a hole. The right-hander now has a 5.00 ERA and the Mets are 0-8 when he starts a game.
“He just fell behind in counts,” said Terry Collins...

Jeremy Hefner: Streak stopper.
Some clairvoyant on television said this morning, “the Mets have lost five straight for the first time this season.’’ He’s probably right, but that’s an awful assumption.
All streaks must end somewhere, and while Matt Harvey didn’t stop the slide last night, the Mets will ask Hefner to do it tonight.
Hefner, who hasn’t been consistently...
After pitching six quality innings in which he gave up just five hits and two walks while limiting the Marlins to one run in a no-decision, it certainly appears that Hefner is here to stay in the Mets’ rotation.
The criminally underrated Hefner is a pitcher who gets by on grit and determination. While not blessed with the greatest stuff, Hefner is your classic bulldog who battles...
Back in October I referred to Jeremy Hefner as undervalued because most people looked at his traditional statistics (4-7, 5.09 ERA) and determined that he was not very good. But if you looked at other numbers, he displayed a bunch of promise. Those numbers were a 4.06 xFIP, a 1.3 fWAR and a .615 Quality Start percentage.
The Mets’ plan appeared to be to use Hefner as a long...
