Subway Series Game 3: The 659th Home Run Song (Feelin' Petty)

It's nights like this that I want to be like Eric Campbell when it comes to numbers. I want to forget how many errors the Mets made (four), how many runs Jon Niese gave up (six, four earned) and how many games the Mets lost to the Yankees (two).However, Squawker Lisa, there is one number I am quite pleased to remember, and that is 659. I wanted A-Rod to get just shy of 660 while...

MMO Game Recap: Yankees 6, Mets 4

The Mets (14-5) dropped the rubber game tonight against the Yankees (11-8) by a score of 6-4.

Niese Still Key In Mets’ Rotation

In the first two games of this series, the focus for the Mets was on their stud pitchers Jacob deGrom and Matt Harvey, but I remain intrigued with Sunday’s starter, Jon Niese. In the pre-Harvey years, when the Mets were forced to move from Johan Santana and Mike Pelfrey – wow, I hadn’t thought of him in a long time – Niese was in the driver’s seat of their rotation. Young...

Can the “new” Jon Niese continue his success versus the Yankees?

Jon Niese goes to the mound tonight as the Mets look to take the rubber game of the road series against the Yankees.

On the surface, things look great for the Mets to win their fourth straight series. But while Niese...

Rubber Game To Close Out 2015 Subway Series: Act I

Jon Niese, being counted among the rotation New Yorkers “knew they had it in them,” has his work cut out for him for tonight’s finale in the Bronx. Nathan Eovaldi of the Yankees has 14 K’s in just under two game’s worth of innings pitched. The question for Niese tonight will be whether or not he can widen that K/BB ratio and keep the Bombers off the bases. It may not matter...

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

The New York Mets might be shopping starter Jon Niese this winter, and they’re already damning his name…which won’t do a whole lot for his trade value, even though the story itself seems relatively tame. 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...
