Featured Post: Who Should Be Traded, Jon Niese or Dillon Gee?

I love watching Dillon Gee pitch.  Similarly, I am a fan of Jon Niese. Although the Mets have been under .500 every season Gee has pitched in the majors, Gee himself has a won-loss record that is six games over .500 and he has never been more than one game under the break-even mark over a full season.  Jonathon Niese, on the other hand, is one of the few Mets left on the team...

Did Mets Wait Too Long To Trade Niese?

Andy Martino of the Daily News wonders if the Mets blew it and waited too long to trade starting pitcher Jon Niese. That there’s so little interest in him is a “striking contrast from two winters ago,” when many rivals were hotter for Niese than for the pitcher the Mets ultimately did move, R.A. Dickey, Martino writes. “This winter, the Mets would argue that a talented,...

Mets Seeing Little Interest In Gee, Niese and Colon

After speaking to a team source, Mike Puma of the New York Post reported via Twitter: “So far, very few inquiries from other teams about Colon, Niese and Gee, I was told. And “very few” might be overstating it.” Last Tuesday, Andy Martino of the Daily News asked Arizona’s GM Dave Stewart for his take on Jon Niese, Dillon Gee, or Bartolo Colon, who the Mets would prefer...

Niese, Collins got into a war of words during final start

Via the New York Daily News… In the third inning of that Friday night home game against the Astros, after Ruben Tejada had drawn a walk, Collins signaled for his pitcher...

An Alternate Plan: Niese And Murphy From NYM

Murphy (L), Niese (R)—(Getty Images)Everybody knows the needs. Your Carmine Hose lack: two top starters, a third baseman and a left-handed bat. And that's at a minimum—let's not forget we won a paltry 71 games in 2014. You've heard the talk about James Shields, Jon Lester, Johnny Cueto, Pablo Sandoval, Hanley Ramirez, Chase Headly—even talk of a mega-deal...

Mets360 2014 projection review: Jon Niese

Prior to the start of the 2014 season the perspective on Jonathon Niese was one of low expectations for many. This was partly due to the fact that Niese had some injury concerns in 2013 and had shown some regression statistically after having a breakthrough season in 2012. In 2013, Niese’s strikeout rate had decreased, his ERA and WHIP increased and his strike out to walk ratio...

Jon Niese continues his second-half comeback

This weekend my brother, who I haven’t seen in nearly two years, was in town visiting. We were watching the Mets game Saturday night and he made some comments about Jon Niese that caught my ear. Essentially, he said that he keeps waiting for Niese to take the next step but that with all of the pitching the Mets have in the pipeline, he’s okay if he doesn’t get any better...

Jon Niese MRI Is Clean; Incident A Reminder Of Pitching Fragility

The New York Mets received good news Thursday when the MRI on Jon Niese’s pitching shoulder came back clean. Most times when a pitcher complains of a dead arm as Niese did, the issue is more weakness than injury, which is the diagnosis here. This was the best possible news for the Mets, who have plenty of issues already without having to worry about losing their No. 1 starter....
