Life Imitating Art: Mets Show Batista The Door

I’m sorry, I felt terrible for Miguel, but the other part of me just couldn’t help laughing especially when the camera panned into the outfield where a huge...

Mets finally designate Miguel Batista for assignment

I know the Mets didn’t have many options when it came to spot starters but seeing them march Miguel Batista out there on Saturday was completely disheartening.  Sure enough, the the 41-year-old did exactly what one would expect him to do; not pitch well.  Batista was knocked around for 4 ER over 3 innings pitched to bring his ERA for the month of July to 8.32.  Like Manny Acosta...

Miguel Batista has delivered for Mets as a starting pitcher

Most of the talk around the Mets is centered around if Chris Young or Jenrry Mejia should be the team’s fifth starter after Chris Schwinden failed miserably in his brief audition for the role. Young was terrific in four starts with the club last year while Mejia in one of The Queens Quads that fans are eager to see perform in Citi Field. But lost in the shuffle is the ancient...
