Mets and the 6th Man

If it means I get to see Noah Syndergaard pitch more, rather than return to Las Vegas, the Mets could add Steven Matz, Rafael Montero, Rainy Lara, and Seth Lugo to the rotation all the while employing the first 10-man rotation in Major League history (to my knowledge anyway) while using Vic Black as the …

Mets Offense Still in O’Hare

There was a moment last night, early in the second inning, when I thought that Matt Harvey had no-hit stuff. His curveball was sharp as Starlin Castro flailed helplessly at it while Harvey’s fastball did Harvey fastball things. Miguel Montero promptly singled, and “folks, there goes the no-hitter” as F.P. Santangelo almost always says, but …

Mets, Harvey Win in the Bronx

On Saturday Matt Harvey (4-0) came as close to having all four of his pitches working as we’ve seen all season. With the ability to hit 98 mph on a fastball with movement (Harvey struck out both Jacoby Ellsbury and Brett Gardner looking in the sixth on fastballs that ran back toward the plate to …

Mets Win Eighth Straight, Lose Two Anyway

Ouch. Losing Jerry Blevins and Travis d’Arnaud for any real length of time is obviously going to impact the Mets. Blevins, fracturing his left forearm on a Dee Gordon liner in the seventh, had been perfect as a situation lefty (five innings pitched, including Sunday, without allowing a hit or a walk while striking out …

Mets: Mighty Men of the East

An RBI for Bartolo Colon! #Mets pic.twitter.com/KxuNBPZ940 — Adam Bernard (@AdamsWorldBlog) April 12, 2015 One of my favorite things about the beginning of the baseball season is how early successes and failures always seem way more important than they really are. For instance, after six starts last April, the Athletics Jesse Chavez sat third in …

Mets Finally Win One

I doubt that come October the Washington Nationals are going to worry all that much about opening the year 1-2 against the New York Mets. It won’t matter. The Nats will proudly sport a shiny record of 100-59 or something equally obscene, sitting 10+ games ahead of the second place Mets all the while secretly …

Mets & Nats Make Me Sad

Yesterday the Mets and Nationals played a largely forgettable game in a string of largely forgettable spring training games that was interesting because Curtis Granderson and Michael Cuddyer both hit home runs (both firsts on the year and likely the only time the two of them go yard in the same game this year) and …

Hello Spring! Welcome Back Matt Harvey!

While I like to think of the offseason as a chance for players and bloggers to work on their respective games, the return of actual games is always welcome. I enjoy researching and writing about win-loss records in close games, Mets team salary breakdowns, and salary increases by position over the years, but watching real …

Matt Harvey’s New Clothes

The New York media has turned on Mets phenom Matt Harvey already.  This is funny considering Harvey hasn’t pitched since August 2013, and when he did pitch, each outing was one notch below a religious experience.  Such is the state of the Mets that erstwhile sane human beings lose their shit when covering them. Hearing …
