KYLE FARNSWORTH IS PLAYING FOOTBALL

  Some of us take a bit longer than others to find our true calling in life. Perhaps Kyle Farnsworth fits that bill. Farnsworth, who spent 16 years in the Major Leagues pitching for 11 teams — 10 if you count his two separate stints with the Braves as one team, but much like Grover Cleveland’s presidencies we are counting them as different entities — has done so in his retirement...

Mets Snap Losing Skid With 3-2 Victory Over O’s

Similar to the nature of life, the game of baseball takes on a cyclical demeanor. Hot streaks give way to slumps. Demotions take the place of a call up Arrays of vast emotions create bewilderment and soul-searching. Success of the recent past feels fleeting, while doubt and questioning overcome subconscious thought. The New York Mets entered Tuesday seeking to re-establish their...

Where Three Is A Bounty

It must be absolutely grueling for Mets starting pitchers to know that they have to be damn near perfect to get a win these days. Not that there’s any anger between pitchers and hitters. But to know that there’s probably going to be no margin for error every game has to be an added layer of “grind” when it comes to the pitchers. But give everyone on that starting staff credit...

Colon beats Baltimore once again, Mets snap shutout string

NEW YORK (AP) Bartolo Colon became the first pitcher in at least 100 years to beat the same opponent with seven different teams, stopping Baltimore once again and leading the New York Mets past the Orioles 3-2 Tuesday night. Colon (5-1) took a shutout into the eighth inning before Manny Machado hit a solo home run with one out. The Mets won after getting blanked 1-0 in their previous...

Gut Reaction: Mets 3 Orioles 2 (5/5/15)

Bartolo Colon put the “sink” in Cinco de Mayo. And the Orioles were sunk. Colon pitched masterfully, leaving the game with two outs in the eighth, having struck out nine men and walked none. The offense came alive — for them, anyway — with a three-run uprising in the fourth to give the Mets just the type of win they need right now: neat, tidy and with only the barest hint...

Mets Game Wrap: Colon Superb In 3-2 Win Over Orioles

The slumping – but not yet reeling – Mets showed wake-up signs tonight in a 3-2 victory over the Orioles. The Mets had lost seven of their last ten games going in. Tonight was about Bartolo Colon (W, 5-1), who was magnificent, giving up on run on six hits and no walks with nine strikeouts in 7.2 innings. With his pitch count low, manager Terry Collins pushed the envelope by letting...

Mets Game Thread: Colon Comes Out For Eighth

Delmon Young singled to lead off the seventh, which begs the question: How long will the Mets go with Bartolo Colon? With nobody warming up in the Mets’ bullpen, Colon struck out Caleb Joseph and Travis Snider (his ninth), and got Everth Cabrera on a grounder to second. The Mets will push the envelope with Colon as they are sending him out for the eighth, but it should be a short...

Mets Game Thread: Bulletin … Mets Score

A great job by Bartolo Colon in the top of the fourth when after back-to-back singles by Adam Jones and Chris Davis, he got the next three hitters. Colon keeps showing why the Mets were fortunate not to trade him. Then, in the bottom of the inning against Bud Norris, the Mets scored for the first time after 21 innings when Lucas Duda doubled and Daniel Murphy singled. Wilmer Flores...

Mets Game Thread: Like Granderson Bunting

Great play by Curtis Granderson to lead off the game with a bunt single against the shift. Lucas Duda, please take note. But, he was thrown out on a missed hit-and-run, and it wasn’t even close. Wilmer Flores is in tonight’s lineup. I was thinking the Mets might be up to something, because, after all, they have made announcements before and backed off them. Mets 0, Orioles 0 (2nd)

Mets' outfield prospect Michael Conforto on pace for early promotion

The Mets 2014 first round draft pick Michael Conforto is lighting it up at High-A Port St. Lucie, hitting .324/.414/.608 with six home runs, 12 walks, and just 11 strikeouts.  But there is one thing that could hinder his development. Opposing pitchers are starting to intentionally walk the slugger. He may have to wait until the Mets promote him to Double-A Binghamton to see some...

Let’s Knock It Off With Mets And Tulowitzki?

One more time: Troy Tulowitzki won’t be coming to the Mets? Not now, and probably not ever. The recent two-game benching of Wilmer Flores brought the predictable “the Mets need to get Tulowitzki” columns and calls on the call-in shows. They could have gotten Tulowitzki a long time ago if they caved to the Rockies’ demands for either Steven Matz or Noah Syndergaard, and another...

The Mets starting rotation is creating more questions than answers

The New York Mets have typically based their winning teams off of the sole component of starting pitching. From the glory days of 1969 and 1973, to the dominant years of the mid 1980’s, heck, even the 1999-2000 and 2006 Mets had top-five team ERA’s. This tradition has carried over into 2015 with a 16-10 record through 26 games resulting in a 3.5 game lead on the Nationals- even...

Mets To Continue With Flores For The Next 4-6 Weeks

Here’s the latest on Wilmer Flores who tells Joe Trezza of MLB.com how he felt about about not playing in back to back games in an attempt to have him clear his head. “It’s tough, but you got to get through it. This is how you’re going to learn, from these mistakes,” said Flores. “We’re all professionals, but we’re humans, too. You just have to shake it off.”...

New York Mets make another promotion

The New York Mets have yet to figure out how to fix their offense. The answer was not 2 games off for Wilmer Flores or the promotion of Dilson Herrera as the Mets were shut out 1-0 in consecutive games against the Nationals. So the Mets will now try to add another offensive weapon. Johnny Monell has been recalled from Triple-A. Monell, a catcher, saw some significant playing time...
