In honor of his bobblehead day on May 26th, the Mets Media Relations department was kind enough to hold a conference call between the great Rusty Staub and several Mets bloggers. Rusty was very nice and accomodating. A range of subjects was covered, from his career, to today’s players, to grilling tips. Here’s a sampling: [...]
Mets 3 Pirates 1 Mets take the series in Pittsburgh with an early afternoon victory.
Mets 3 Pirates 2 When two offensively challenged teams face each other, the level of drama of a game and its outcome are often dependent on the number and type of mistakes made. This game fit that condition.
Pirates 5 Mets 4 When you score four runs early against the Pirates, the game is pretty much in the bag. After all, the Bucs are averaging under three runs scored per game, and “The Lumber Company” is specializing in balsa wood toothpicks these days. But, there’s one way that poor offensive clubs score runs: [...]
On Friday, the Mets Media Relations department was kind enough to hold a conference call between Mets bloggers and B-Mets Jefry Marte and Collin McHugh. Both players are off to prodigious starts for Binghamton. Marte was named Mets minor league hitter of the month. He’s hitting .326/.389/.442. McHugh, the Mets minor league pitcher of the month, has [...]
Although Ike Davis stroked a double in Sunday afternoon’s game in Toronto, he has struggled mightily all season, and can’t seem to break out of his slump. As a result, there is buzz that Ike could be sent down to the minors to work out his issues. Is that the best plan?
Mets 6 Blue Jays 5 Mets salvage series with Sunday’s victory — despite needing Frank Francisco to preserve a one-run lead.
Blue Jays 2 Mets 0 Mets lose today to Morrow as well as yesterday.
Blue Jays 14 Mets 5 Jonathon Niese and the New York Mets were given a very rude introduction to baseball as it’s played in the AL Beast.
After a brief homestand, the Mets head north to Toronto to take on the Blue Jays. Yes, interleague play is here. The Mets survived Brewing trouble and the Red scare to come away with a 2-2 homestand. Now they venture not only into the true north (strong and free, apparently), but into the American League [...]
Mets 9 Reds 4 The final score belies what this game was.
Reds 6 Mets 3 The question of the night: why was D.J. Carrasco pitching for the Mets in the 8th inning of a one-run game?
Today, MLB Commissioner Bud Selig, New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, and Mets owner Fred Wilpon announced that the All-Star Game is coming to Citi Field on July 16, 2013. It will mark the first time the ASG has come to Queens since Shea Stadium’s inaugural season in 1964. In that game Johnny Callison hit [...]
So far, there is one entry for the free tickets to see the Mets and Reds tomorrow afternoon. ONE. Based on the lack of entries, I’m going to guess: 1. You’re unable to go to Flushing on a Thursday afternoon due to previous commitment (i.e., you work during the day, you’re in a hospital bed, [...]
Brewers 8 Mets 0 Mets engage in an ugly game that needs to be forgotten as soon as possible.
