Why tonight’s game is crucial for the New York Mets

The New York Mets’ Citi Field struggles continued last night in quite the ugly fashion. Nothing went well yesterday for the (not so) Amazin’s. The Mets got outplayed in nearly every phase of the game. Offensively, they couldn’t get a hit off of journeyman Aaron Harang; defensively, Travis d’Arnaud made a costly run-scoring error in the 8th; and in the pitching department...

MMO Players of the Week: Lagares and Niese Cop Top Honors

This week in Mets baseball was just like any other: stagnant offense, average defense and bi-polar pitching. At the close of week two, it became apparent that more than one player was going to have to hit consistently for this team to experience constant success and reach that seemingly astronomical 90-win goal. However, despite the up and down pattern we have been seeing from this...

Mets Notes: D’Arnaud Homers, Murphy Streaking, Niese on the Hill

The Mets and Angels will play the middle game of their weekend series when Jon Niese opposes Jared Weaver at 9:05 PM.

Reds trying to avoid sweep in Big Apple

Niese, instead, began the season on the 15-day disabled list and could face a tougher situation in his season debut. The Ohio native has dropped all three career home starts against the Cincinnati Reds, who are trying to avoid their first three-game sweep at...

New York Mets: how to fill Jon Niese’s rotation spot

Jon Niese was projected to be the starter for the first game of the season for the New York Mets against the Nationals on March 31. However, given that Niese has only pitched four innings due to issues related to his elbow and shoulder, that is seriously in doubt. Niese did receive some positive news on his elbow from the MRI which showed that there was shown to be no structural...

Wrapping Up The Day: Niese Gets MRI; Starting Rotation Announced; Shortstop Unsettled

Jonathon Niese, designated to be the New York Mets’ Opening Day starter, was sent to New York for a MRI on his sore shoulder.

Niese’s first exhibition start was to be March 4 against Houston, but that’s not going to happen. The Mets won’t have any word on Niese’s...
