Gut Reaction: Mets 9 Phillies 4 (8/26/15)

This was a night of getting just what was needed. Terry Collins needed to give the bullpen a rest, so Bartolo Colon gave the Mets seven innings of five-hit ball. Needing to get off to a fast start, the Mets put up three quick runs in the first inning. And finally, when some insurance was needed, when it looked like the Phillies were going to creep back into it, when the Nationals...

Jon Gray struggles, Colorado Rockies lose despite offensive effort

  Friday night was an example of how far away the Colorado Rockies are from being successful. Their greatest hope for the future, Jon Gray, was lit up by the first-place New York Mets. His night was over before the 2nd inning was completed and the Mets were on their way. When Gray left the game, the Rockies were down 7-1. At Coors Field, however, no lead is truly safe, especially...

Mets-Rockies Preview

The New York Mets are stumbling since sweeping their latest series with Colorado. They'll try to begin work on another as they go for a ninth straight win over the Rockies on Friday night. New York (64-56) capped a four-game sweep of Colorado (49-70) with a 12-3 victory Aug. 13, winning for the 11th time in 13 games. That stretch propelled the Mets into the NL East lead. They have...

No Winning For Mets With Six Man Rotation

The problem with the Mets skipping Matt Harvey or Noah Syndergaard for a start or two in September, is that by the end of the month they might need those games. That’s why having a definitive plan entering the season was the way to go, but GM Sandy Alderson was too smart for that and Harvey was too stubborn. Getting their starts will be Steven Matz and Logan Verrett. And, hopefully...

The best kind of win

There is nothing quite like a tough road game, deadlocked in the late innings, with the threat of a walk-off always looming, in a hostile ballpark….that ends in a win. It hasn’t happened often enough for the Pirates in those situations, so when it does, I’ve really come to appreciate it. Thrilling walk off wins at home are awesome, of course, and they are obviously more fun...

If the Mets Had Money

Entering today, the New York Mets lead the NL East by 1.5 games over the Washington Nationals. There’s no telling who will come out on top at the end of this season, but we’re seeing a validation of the Mets sterling rotation. Matt Harvey, Jacob deGrom, and Noah “Thor” Syndergaard, along with the ageless Bartolo Colon, have brought the Mets back to relevance. And with Zack...

Sandy Alderson must continue the bold moves

The Trading Deadline has come and gone and Sandy Alderson has looked like a hero bringing in both help for the offense and for the bullpen. He has always been just a touch slower in his approach to the active roster though, so now is the time for him to continue his drive towards October baseball. Sending Eric Campbell down instead of Michael Conforto was a nice first step, but more...

Gut Reaction: Rays 4, Mets 3 (8/9/15)

While you can’t win them all, that was a little discouraging. Bartolo Colon was not sharp, again. He has alternated good and bad starts since July 7th, and even though he didn’t get pounded, it was just enough out of the reach of the Mets offense. Speaking of that offense, the last six batters in the lineup had a collective one hit and three walks. Yesterday the remaining five...

DraftKings – The Fattest Pitcher You Know

In last week's Two Start Pitchers post I, to the surprise of many, included one Bartolo Colon ($7,400) among the top starting options of the week. Looking down the schedule at his two opponents it was difficult to ignore the opportunity regardless of how poor the old butterball had been pitching. It paid off earlier in the week as Colon pitched a solid 8 innings of one run ball scattering...

Gut Reaction: Mets 12, Marlins 1 (8/3/15)

The Mets blew the Marlins out of the water early on, as the offense provided plenty of runs for Bartolo Colon, and the veteran earned his 10th win of the season. Michael Conforto hit his first major league homer, which provided three runs in the second inning. Batting Conforto eighth should enable him to get some opportunities to drive in runs, and he took advantage of the situation...
