I want to touch on Carlos Torres’ great outing on Monday, as he went five innings while giving up three hits and striking out six in an emergency start after pitching a third of an inning the day before. But I can’t do that without mentioning the reason for Torres’ emergency start, as Bartolo Colon left to be with his ill mother before she passed away. So as you think of Torres...

Wright hurt, Niese falters, but Mets somehow pull one out over Cubs

Jon Niese was able to look at his performance in Saturday’s 7-3 win over the Cubs as a “step forward.” He has Vic Black to thank for that. Niese, cruising for most of his start, unraveled in the seventh and only a brilliant job out of the bullpen from Black kept the Mets comfortably ahead. Given a 7-1 lead after a four-run sixth, Niese surrendered a leadoff homer to Justin...
