Old New York Teams Haunt the Mets
The Brooklyn Dodgers, New York Giants and the New York Yankees were once the Major League franchises that called the Big Apple home. In 1957, much to the dismay of their fans, including many members of my family (I'm old but wasn't around yet), the Giants and the Dodgers headed to the lef…
New York Mets Will Need to Overpay for Help
Unfortunately, Eickhoff says a lot about the Mets organizational pitching depth. Thankfully, Tylor Megill has come up and been a nice surprise. However, after that any real Mets pitching prospect is at least a few years away. The Mets AAA team in Syracuse is dead last in the league in pitching, sp…
New York Mets’ Bullpen Keeps Atlanta at Arms Length
With the Braves now 4 games behind the Mets and the Phillies 3, game two took on crucial importance. The organization believes that starting pitching help is on the way in a few days, via trades, Carlos Carasco, etc. but that didn't help last night. New York's bullpen was called upon to pi…
New York Mets’ Stroman Delivers Relief for Bullpen
Going deep into games in today's version of Major League Baseball, I would guess would be a pitcher getting into the 6th inning. Before, if you didn't complete 6 innings, it wasn't considered a quality start. Today, New York Mets starting pitcher Marcus Stroman went "old school.…
Who Are New York’s 5 Biggest Sports Stars?
Monday night, New York Mets first baseman Pete Alonso had just hit his 18th home run of the season. He was rounding 3rd base and as he faced his teammates in the dugout he began to do an imitation of a Pete Towsend guitar windmill. Alonso was indicating to his fellow Amazin's that they were r…
New York Mets Survive Wild Night In Cincinnati
One could try to pick a "turning point" in last night's crazy game between the New York Mets and the Cincinnati Reds but it wouldn't be easy. Right from the start, the Mets scored 3 runs in the top of the first off of Reds starter Vladimir Gutierrez. Great start right? Well, Ne…
New York Mets Escape from Pittsburgh with a Comeback Win
The New York Mets fell out of the starting gate, to use a horse racing term, to start the second half. After watching Edwin Diaz melt down last Sunday, Met fans got treated to an encore Saturday night against the very same, last place Pittsburgh Pirates. The first place Mets limped into Sunday after…
New Identity A Secret Weapon for Mets
But the biggest advantage for the Mets is the experience they had weathering those injuries and remaining in first place. How important will the evolution of the "Bench Mob" be, late in games, down the stretch? I bet you pretty important for Rojas and his coaching staff. Who will forget K…
Rojas Earns Well Deserved “A”
New York Mets, 39 year old manager Luis Rojas maybe younger than most but he is a baseball lifer. His father, Felipe Alou, played 17 years in the big leagues and he managed another 14. His brother Moises added 17 years in MLB of his own. Rojas, in his second year at the helm of the Mets, has been ma…
Mets Turn Tide, Pick Up deGrom
It's not often that Superman needs help but it happens. In seasons past, Jake deGrom would take the mound, give up one run and lose the game 1-0. This year is different. No, Jake is still Superman but this year, his faithful teammates aren't letting him down.
Same City…Opposite Directions
This weekend's Subway Series between the Mets and Yankees was one to remember and another one to forget. Which one depends on who you ask. Queens will have one answer and the Bronx may give you a gesture instead.
Top 5 New York Baseball Moments on 4th of July
America's pastime has to have a special place in people's heart on Independence Day in the United States. Sure, July 4th rides up in the middle of the Major League Baseball season, so there won't be any playoff or world series history on the day that our country celebrates its birthda…
Let’s Celebrate! It’s Bobby Bonillia Day
Today, as he has since 2011, Bobby Bonilla will receive a check for $1,193,248.20 for the New York Mets. In case you don't know the story, prior to the 2000 season the Mets wanted to buy out the remaining $5.9 million of Bonillia's contract. The Mets and Bonillia agreed that in lieu of p…
