Zack Wheeler Joins A Special Strikeout Club

On Friday night, Zack Wheeler struck out seven Atlanta Braves in six innings en route to his 11th victory of the season.  In doing so, he upped his career strikeout total to 264, passing Matt Harvey by three.  It is worth noting that Wheeler has not yet made 50 starts in the big leagues, as Friday’s seven-strikeout effort came in his 48th start at the major league level.

Zack Wheeler hurls six scoreless innings as Mets, who will miss playoffs, shut out Braves

There will be no playoffs. There has not been a chance at 90 wins for weeks. The idea of a winning season is still a slim hope. The Mets, however, are adamant they still have plenty to play for in the eight remaining games of the 2014 season. Zack Wheeler went out and proved it Friday night, pitching six scoreless innings as the Mets beat the Braves, 5-0, at Turner Field. Despite...

Mets miss playoffs for eighth straight year

Eight is enough! The Mets can make that next year’s cheesy T-shirt slogan, after their playoff drought was officially extended to eight seasons Friday. Zack Wheeler’s six shutout innings led a 5-0 victory over the Braves at Turner Field, but the Pirates delivered the Mets a wild-card knockout punch by rallying to beat the Brewers, 4-2, in Pittsburgh. Not that the Mets were...

Mets Mathematically Eliminated, But Can Sill Shoot For .500

It’s over. The Mets have been mathematically eliminated from post-season contention as they play out the last eight games of the 2014 season. “We didn’t accomplish what we wanted to,” Terry Collins said after Friday’s 5-0 win over the Braves. “We certainly came out of spring training with high hopes of putting together a nice run. We just never seemed to get it going...

Busting Down The Front Door Of Failure

You hear a lot about teams “backing into the playoffs” … you know, clinching a playoff berth with a loss because some other team they needed to lose also lost. The Mets, they back into nothing. They dive head first into the cesspool that is elimination. The Mets had a good night against the Atlanta Braves on Friday. And seeing as if the Braves are sinking like a stone and are...

MMO Game Thread: Mets vs Braves, 7:35 PM

Tonight the Mets open a 3-game series with the Atlanta Braves in a matchup of two incredibly talented young pitchers. 24-year-old Zack Wheeler (10-10, 3.61) takes on 23-year-old righty Julio Teheran (13-12, 2.89) with first pitch at 7:35 from Turner Field. In his last start Wheeler took the loss in a 10-3 defeat to the Nationals on September 13th at Citi Field. He pitched just 4...

Two Key Numbers Say Mets On The Cusp

Just when you begin to get the warm-and-fuzzies about the New York Mets, they lose a series to the Miami Marlins, a team they trailed by just a game starting the week. Granted, third place in nothing to raise a banner over, but it is better than fourth. Also, at the end of last week, they trailed Atlanta by 2.5 games with a chance at second … small steps for a team learning to...

Can Dillon Gee Crack 2015 Mets Rotation?

As far as 2015 goes, it seems as if there’s really only one guy with a firm lock on his rotation spot. On opening day, barring any unforeseen circumstances, Matt Harvey will take the mound as the Mets ace. Beyond that, the rotation is as big a mystery as any. There are certain guys that we expect to be here. Unless they are traded, Jacob deGrom and Zack Wheeler will pitch behind...

WATCH: Bryce Harper’s towering two-run bomb

It was just another night for the Washington Nationals as they handed the New York Mets yet another loss on Saturday night, thanks in part to Bryce Harper’s 13th home run of the season. But this one was an absolute moonshot!   In the top of the 2nd with a man on, Harper sent a 95 mph Zack Wheeler fastball deep into the New York night and into the upper deck! A 9 1/2 game lead...

MMO Game Recap: Nationals 10, Mets 3

On a damp evening at Citi Field, Zack Wheeler‘s recent stretch of dominance came to an end as his lack of command coupled with a poor defensive effort resulted in a 10-3 blowout loss to the Washington Nationals on Saturday evening. Bryce Harper sent a fly ball into the Pepsi porch that just barely tucked inside the right-field foul pole after Ian Desmond led off with a walk to...

Wheeler Impresses Again, Might Be Wise To Lock Him Up

On Sunday, Zack Wheeler took the hill and gave the Mets a superb effort, limiting the Reds to just one run in 6.0 innings of work and striking out six along the way. It was by all accounts another great effort from the second year pitcher as he earned his 10th win. The one part of Wheeler’s game that needs to be fine tuned is his efficiency. He’s letting big innings chip away...

3 Up, 3 Down: The Kids Are Alright

The Mets finished up their three game set against the Marlins with a 2-1 series victory last night. New York has an interesting parallel with their division rivals from Miami, in that both organizations have dwelled at the bottom of the NL East cellar for many years now, but through those years they also stockpiled young, athletic players with the potential to be stars. Let’s see...

Wheeler struggles as sloppy Mets lose 9-6

Andrelton Simmons Saves Game That Ruben Tejada Gave Away

Last night was really about two shortstops. Zack Wheeler pitched another incredible game, giving up 2 earned runs over his 7 innings of work. Unfortunately for him, it was the 1 unearned run that would be the difference in the game. In the top of the third, with a run already in, Ruben Tejada booted a relatively easy ground ball that he had charged in on. There wasn’t a lot of...
