Mets' Niese watches baby being born on FaceTime after rough outing

It's probably not too far of a stretch to say New York Mets hurler Jonathon Niese was a little distracted Friday night. The left-hander took the mound against the Los Angeles Dodgers knowing his wife was about to give birth to the couple's second child. Instead of opting to skip his start, Niese elected to give it a go against the NL West-leading Dodgers. It didn't go well. Niese...

(AP Photo/Jeff Roberson) Though the Mets came through to defeat the St. Louis Cardinals 3-1 on Sunday afternoon, it was hard to come away feeling like it was much of a success.

Despite Recent Run Of Success, Interest In Jon Niese Remains Stagnant

Despite the recent run of success by lefthander Jon Niese, Andy Martino of the Daily News says it’s done little if anything to increase his value or interest in him. Baseball people he checked in with were impressed that Niese had pitched well against quality teams like the Blue Jays, Cubs and Giants, but noted that good general managers are rarely swayed by a hot streak. “I...

Breaking Down Jon Niese vs. San Francisco Giants

Stat Line:  8 IP, 0 R, 3 H, 4 SO, 2 BB Last night, Jon Niese recorded his first win since May 9th in the New York Mets 3-0 victory over the San Francisco Giants.  During this article, I will explain how the variance in Niese fastball movement and velocity led to his success yesterday evening.

At Long-Last, A Well Deserved Win For Jon Niese

It’s been more than eight weeks since Mets lefty starter Jon Niese earned a win, despite a month-long run of spectacular starts. But on Monday, against the reigning World Series champion Giants, the veteran southpaw finally got the “W” and a well deserved one at that. Niese might’ve pitched his best game of the season against the Giants, twirling eight shutout innings and...

Rumored Baez for Niese deal could work for Mets

Bear with me for a moment, but let’s imagine the Mets are not in a deep freefall with no end in sight. Let’s assume they didn’t cough up an 11-0 streak and could hit their way out of a paper bag. Pretend the New York Mets are legitimate playoff contenders this season. Better isn’t it? Unfortunately, we’ve still got a quandary on our hands. The Mets have way too much starting...

Jon Niese Has Shown Significant Improvement

In a year highlighted by one of the league’s best rotations, a big reason the Mets remain atop the National League East 67 games into the season, some fans remain unsatisfied with one particular member of that rotation.

Jon Niese: Not on the DL and pitching great

From all indications, the Mets spent a fair amount of time trying to trade a veteran starting pitcher this past offseason. The response from other teams was either low-ball offers or no offers at all, as they tried to pry loose Noah Syndergaard, instead. You can’t blame a team for trying to get Syndergaard. But you can blame them for missing the boat on Jon Niese. Here was...
