The Pirates probably aren’t going to catch the National League Central division-leading Chicago Cubs, who hold a 7.5-game lead over Pittsburgh. That said, the wild card is very much attainable for the Pirates. They are just 1.5 games out of the second and final wild-card spot. How might Pittsburgh improve its roster heading into the trade deadline? Well, two pitchers could be on...

Jon Niese looks to keep the Pirates rolling

Inside of a week the Pirates have gone from a horrible ball of stress and frustration to a vaunted offense bludgeoned their way towards the upper part of the National League. This is possible because it’s only April, of course, but it’s a welcome change from the week that preceded it. Jon Niese takes the mound tonight to try and keep his perfect record intact, though I’ll admit...

Jon Niese seems like a good fit for the Pirate Approach to Pitching

There was plenty of discussion (read: analysis, hot takes, etc.) when the Pirates swapped Neil Walker for Jon Niese over the winter, but there was one unmissable implication in the trade itself: the Pirates wanted Jon Niese.

Jon Niese Just Couldn’t Resist, Takes Shot At Mets Defense

Jon Niese didn’t take his trade to the Pittsburgh Pirates too bad. In fact, you could say he sounded like a guy who was relieved to be putting the /New York Mets behind him.’ Never being one to hide his emotions, especially if his defense let him down, Niese told Rob Biertempfel of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review: “I didn’t enjoy facing the Pirates; they have a great lineup...

Mets360 2015 projection review: Jon Niese

Last offseason, all we heard was how Jon Niese was damaged goods, that he had no trade value and that he would wind up on the disabled list sooner rather than later.  Niese stayed off the DL but his season was uneven at best and by the end of the year he was relegated to the bullpen for the playoffs.  With that in mind, check in on our original piece to see what we thought coming...

The Pitcher With the Most Incredible Plays

What are the Mets going to do to get over the final hump? Are they going to find an upgrade at shortstop? Are they going to find an upgrade in center field? Might they dip into their vast pitching resources to swing an unforeseen blockbuster? I don’t know. Let’s watch Jon Niese play defense.

MMO Mailbag: Should The Mets Trade Jon Niese?

Tyler asks… Why is Jon Niese still on this team? They should have traded him two years ago but now it’s even more important to get rid of him and put that $9 million dollars to better use. Thoughts? Dr. Dooby replies… The frequent calls to trade Mets left-hander Jon Niese to pick up some payroll flexibility are somewhat perplexing and even misguided. Most teams need 9...
