Projecting Mets’ Opening Day Roster

With the exhibition games about to begin shortly, I thought it would be a good time to post my initial projection of the Mets’ 25-man Opening Day roster.

The Forgotten Man: Jonathan Niese

As I scrolled through my daily Mets spring training content, something hit me: Where the heck is Jon Niese? There are so many storylines in camp this year. You have the returning super-star Matt Harvey, the reigning Rookie of The Year Jacob deGrom, and the fire-baller on the verge of breaking out Zack Wheeler. These three have demanded most of the coverage so far in Port St. Lucie...

Jon Niese can’t afford less velocity

According to ESPN’s Adam Rubin, Jon Niese‘s physical condition has been getting praise after he attended the infamous Mike Barwis fitness camp. That’s a positive sign, though pretty much all players that attend the camp seem to get the same praise. A bigger take away from that piece was the note on the drop in Niese’s fastball velocity.

Niese Faces Pivotal Season

Every spring there is that singular player whose career might hang in the balance as is Jonathon Niese’s with the New York Mets. NIESE: Will it ever happen for him? It was in 2012 when the Mets signed him to a long-term contract through 2016. They signed him for all the right reasons. He threw hard; is left-handed; the contract provided cost certainty; he had some degree of major...

Metrics Point To Breakthrough Season For Jon Niese

In a in a recent piece on Fangraphs, Josh Barnes takes an in depth look at how Jon Niese had improved the last two months of the 2014 season. By using an improved change up, Barnes shows how Niese has become more effective and a better pitcher since last August 6th.

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.
