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...

Yankees game 19: Harvey dominates to split series

New York Mets 8 – New York Yankees 2 Matt Harvey stepped into enemy territory and stepped up his game. For the fans that complained about it, the Mets’ Lucas Duda made quick use of the hitter’s advantage in right field. In the first inning, the Mets first baseman would hit a two-out solo home run into right field off of CC Sabathia to put the Mets ahead early. Through the first...

Gut Reaction: Mets 8, Yankees 2 (4/25/15)

Now that’s more like it! The Mets came storming back from an unpleasant visit to the Bronx last night. This time the Mets offense was on display, as they hit three home runs and tallied a dozen hits. Kevin Plawecki had a nice offensive game by driving in the first three runs of his career, two of which came via his first career home run. Lucas Duda started the scoring with a shot...

Mets Game Wrap: Harvey And Offense Pace Rout Of Yankees

Matt Harvey was exceptional today – addressing any doubts about his sprained left ankle and last Sunday’s reported bout with strep throat – and backed by the offense that posted season highs in runs and hits (12) routed the Yankees, 8-2. He also didn’t erase any thoughts he’s the one who really calls the shots. Lucas Duda, Eric Campbell and Kevin Plawecki homered for the...

Lucas Duda Keeps Getting Better

After the conclusion of the 2012 season, fans of the New York Mets finally got to see the potential that Ike Davis had. He hit 32 home runs, drove in 90 runs, and had a decent wRC+ of 112. The season before, Davis was tearing it up but an injury prevented him to playing only 36 games. At the time of his injury, Davis has a wRC+ of 153. It was a good 2 years for Davis. While Davis...

Yankees Will Always Be Kings of New York

No matter how much success the other team in New York may be having this season, or ever, the city of New York will always be owned by the New York Yankees.

Mets prospect Noah Syndergaard rips Twitter troll over ‘pathetic 9-5 job’

New York Mets pitcher Noah Syndergaard fell into the all-too common trap that has ensnared many an athlete since the advent of social media by engaging a troll on Twitter.

New York Mets: has Wilmer Flores turned the corner?

Coming into the season everyone, from fans to analysts, could tell you that the biggest hole in the New York Mets’ lineup was at shortstop. And for the first few games that remained true. Wilmer Flores was struggling and everyone knew Ruben Tejada would be no better. But then the team started its incredible stretch. 10 straight wins, 9 straight at home. And as the Mets have gotten...

The Mets are off to one of the best starts in their history. At 12 and 3 they currently possess the best record in baseball.

Reacting to Familia saving over Parnell

Earlier this week, New York Mets manager Terry Collins announced that Jeurys Familia will continue to hold the closer’s role for the first few weeks of Bobby Parnell’s return from TJ Surgery. This means that Familia will be holding the closer’s job well into the beginning of the season, and may hold onto it for a long while after that. Both of these two have had success...

The magnificent machinations of Bartolo Colon

Going into the spring of 2015, the talk around the New York Mets was rarely about Bartolo Colon, unless a remark was made on the need to ship him out. Colon had been poor trade bait last summer, and it seemed management’s thinking was to hold on for better return later. While Colon’s price tag climbed to $11 million for this year, and a 4.09 ERA from last year didn’t mean...
