Where Have You Gone, Calvin Schiraldi?

I wish I could find real outrage in a 6-4 loss to the Red Sox on Friday. I just can’t. Because for every move that Terry Collins made that you could question, such as not pinch hitting for Ruben Tejada in the seventh inning with the bases loaded after a bases loaded walk tied the game, or bringing in Carlos Torres after he pitched two and a third last night, Red Sox manager Torey...

Daniel Murphy Does It With Bat and Glove In Mets Win

Baseball is a funny game. Last night, in the bottom of the 10th inning of a tie ball game against the Philadelphia Phillies, Daniel Murphy was a part of what some could argue was the Mets’ best defensive play of the year. With Carlos Torres pitching and two outs in the inning, Jeff Francoeur hit […]

A New Unit Of Measurement

Thursday’s game was strange. Not so much outwardly strange as in birds, raccoons, and various animals and weird nonsense going on that was obvious. But weird in that you had runs in the early innings … the Phillies had five off Jon Niese in the third and then the Mets came back in the fourth and the fifth on taters by Travis d’Arnaud, Yoenis Cespedes, and Kelly Johnson …...

Gut Reaction: Mets 9, Phillies 5 (8/27/15)

Normally when you score seven, five, four, and five runs in a four game series, you’re looking to pull at least one or two wins away. Not the Philadelphia Phillies. They had the unfortunate task of taking on the hottest team in baseball. But it wasn’t always so. From June 30th to July 4th the Mets scored six runs in six games. They haven’t scored less than six runs in any of...

The Mets’ magic continued on Thursday night when they turned what might be the defensive play of the year thus far during their matchup with the Phillies. In the tenth inning of the game, with the score tied at 5-5, Jeff Francoeur hit a ground ball up the middle which seemed like a surefire base hit. But pitcher Carlos Torres would have none of it, and he flicked the ball off his...

More late-inning arms a must for playoff hunt

Carlos Torres, the Mets reliever who continued the bullpen’s recent struggles allowing a walk-off home run against Baltimore Wednesday night, said location wasn’t a problem on Henry Urrutia’s first career home run. “We called for a fastball up. I threw the fastball up. These guys, unfortunately, they’ve been seeing [Noah] Syndergaard and [Jacob] deGrom, so my fastball up...

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...

On Sunday’s Mets’ bullpen meltdown

Fate smiled on me Sunday. A rain delay came at the same time my son asked me to take him to the movies. So, instead of watching the last three innings, I saw Tom Cruise and the latest Mission: Impossible movie. Sometimes it seems like the Mets’ bullpen is its own kind of mission impossible, too. Anyway, the movie was fine and forgettable but it sounds like the relievers were...

Gut Reaction: Pirates 3, Mets 2 (10 innings) 8/14/15

The Mets’ four-game winning streak came to an end Friday night, as the Pirates came in to Citi Field and escaped with a 3-2 win in extra innings. The groundswell is building for the Mets to bring back Terry Collins as manager but he showed poor judgment with his relief pitchers in this game. In an extra inning game, he chose to bring on Bobby Parnell, a pitcher struggling to come...

Alex Torres and judging relievers on a few bad outings

One of the hardest things a manager has to do is run his bullpen and there are very few skippers who do it well year in and year out. There are a number of reasons for this and one of them is the sample size issue. It’s rare for a current reliever to exceed 80 innings in a season. If a starting pitcher like Jacob deGrom has a couple of bad games, he has plenty of starts and...

Carlos Torres has turned it up

The Mets bullpen didn’t appear to be a weakness heading into the season. In fact, it seemed that it may have been an actual strength. Then all of the misfortune came washing down. Josh Edgin was lost to Tommy John surgery. Vic Black and Bobby Parnell hit the disabled list. Jenrry Mejia was slapped with what turned out to be the first of his PED suspensions. Buddy Carlyle was placed...

Gut Reaction: Mets 2, Nationals 1 (7/31)

What a game this turned out to be. Matt Harvey looked like a man on a mission tonight, as he went 7.2 innings, struck out 9 and allowed one run. He allowed his first hit in the sixth inning, and looked in complete control through his start. With two outs in the eighth inning, the umpires ruled that Harvey hit Clint Robinson on the foot, although the replay was did not show his foot...

Clippard Deal Gives Depth To Mets’ Bullpen

Perhaps the Mets see cracks with Jeurys Familia, or they see flaws with Carlos Torres and Alex Torres, but I like the acquisition of Tyler Clippard from Oakland. In whatever role they use him, he adds depth to a strained bullpen that is becoming exposed. Note that Familia has blown his two save opportunities since the All-Star break. The Mets sent minor league pitcher Casey Meisner...
