    NY Mets 2013

    So here we are the start of another season and while most have a very low expectations as to how well the team plays I on the other hand have plenty to share with everyone. Thing is ya never know…ya just don’t. What we have is a scrappy team many of whom I know personally who are excited and optimistic as anyone can be or expect. They are going out there with the mind set of winning, they have no interest in proving the critics wrong but to prove to themselves and the fans they can surprise and have a great year. They are scrappy, talented, determined and full of enthusiasm, they have each other’s backs get along like a family of brothers who really like and support each other. While I cannot promise you a winning season, what I can promise is that you will see is hard working tuff team that will play hard and exciting baseball.

    Well we need to start the season off with a bang and so we did.
    Sure was a fun opening game I never had a doubt they would win it is something they have done something like 75% of the time
    Jonathon Niese was so calm and cool just went out there knew what he had to do and got it done no pressure of being put in Johan’s spot, none at all, Loved the way he had his cutter working sorta made up for his so so curveball. I hope you picked up on how sharp a break on the pitch better than I have ever seen. He threw 16 of 20 for strikes and allowed only one base runner which came as a result of hitting the player. Another thrilling moment for me was to see Scott Rice, after spending almost 15 years in the minors a true success story if ever there is one. Hope to see more of him very soon he is one to watch.

    All we heard from the press and Alderson himself was WHAT OUTFIELD? Well Cowgill and Buck showed em a bit of what we have. Cowgill became the first Met to hit a grand slam in his first game with the team and Marlon Byrd gave us a pair of singles in his first Mets home, another new kid on the block John Buck had an RBI single. Buck was very impressive behind the plate I loved how he called that game. I was concerned about how the new catching staff would work with our pitchers and so far so god. You had to notice that Niese hardly ever if ever shrugged off any of Bucks pitch selections, hope you noticed that. How great was it to see Niese in the dugout pleading his case to Collins to stay in the game just one more inning and more importantly seeing Terry grant him the chance, and Jon did not disappoint Collins with the next two batters. I love that Collins had the confidence in Niese to let him go back out there. Of course with a nine run lead it was easy for him to do.

    But back to the press how quick were they to jump all over Ike Davis for going 0-for-5 with four strikeouts, I actually heard a few OH OH’s is Ike in trouble? Good Grief it was his first game, calm the fuck down don’t be so fast to tear him down. If they knew anything about Ike they would know that it is not uncommon for Ike to have a game like that on the first day in fact he even joked and said. “The streak continues,” Ike was just swinging too hard, nerves maybe who knows but the Ike Man will be fine.

    Daniel Murphy had a happy birthday opener on his birthday. Even thou he barely played this spring looked smooth with two hits taking eight swings and made contact on every one and handling six plays in the field beautifully. Just so ya know Murph is the second Met to drive in a run in a season gotten a hit on Opening Day. Gary Carter was the first.

    Shaun Marcum not doing so well he had some neck pain and did not pitch in a scheduled simulated game Tuesday in St. Lucie, so what that means is he will be unable to be activated from the disabled list to make Sunday's start, he was to be our fifth starter. Dono yet who will pitch but could be Aaron Laffey at least I imagine he is the most probable with Collin McHugh also a possibility cause unlike Laffey Collin is already on the 40-man roster and if the Mets go with Laffey, they can create space on the 40-man roster by moving Johan Santana to the 60-day disabled list. Expect a decision by tonight

    Game tonight with the very exciting Matt Harvey making his first start of the year. If/when he wins tonight it will be his first at Citi, he went 3-5 last season

    Great win by the Mets....tremendous effort by Matt Harvey. Went seven innings, allowing only one hit and struck out ten...was overpowering at times and had all his pitches working. Some bigtime home run power too as Lucas Duda blasted a two run shot in the second, John Buck ripped a solo one in the fourth and Ike Davis slammed a two run shot in the fifth inning as the Mets blasted San Diego 8-4 to start the season at 2-0.

    The "Boy of Winter" provided another top notch win last nite with a sensational performance by Matt Harvey. His pitching was off the charts. BIg bats supplied by Duda, Ike, and Buck with 2 run blasts. It's nice to see this type of baseball from the Mets, it went missing after the All Star break last year. Hopefully, we can continue forward with similar games throughout the season. Looks like Aaron Laffey will take Marcum's spot in the rotation next week. Can we say SWEEP, Let's go Mets!!

    Re: NY Mets 2013

    Oh my gosh how exciting was it to watch Matt Harvey last night, dominant, confident and just plain filthy with 10 strikeouts, he threw 94 pitches, 63 for strikes, and hit 98 mph on the radar gun. He dominated with his fastball, and most impressive was when he made that adjustment half way thru the game and his secondary pitches dominated the Padres as well. An ace is born, and we are in for some great pitching from him in 2013. I noticed he started using that change he had been workin on and it was very effective he has mastered that pitch beautifully not that In had any doubt if he would nice to see him toss that pitch last night. Things got a little sticky after Matt left the game and we went to the pen with Greg Burke and Josh Edgin but it was Latroy Hawkins who really caused some concern giving up three runs but it was our new closer Bobby Parnell who saved the day 1-2-3. Ya have to love our new closer.Francisco still has tingling or some freakin thing in his arm so he is not ready to pitch.Its ok grandma take all the time ya need we will be fine with Bobby.

    Buck once again showed how well he is going to work with the new younger pitchers just as he did with Niese. I think John understands that sometimes Harvey likes to rush his pitches and Buck was able to set the tone slowing Harvey down when needed. I am lovin what I see from Buck.

    The Dude continues to improve he’s been patient and selective, and I hope you noticed especially last night how he took advantage of every hittable pitch he saw. Duda has now reached based five times over the first two games of the season. The Dude is here. Of course we were all happy to see Ike Davis break out demolished a flat fastball to the Shea Bridge with a 2 run rocket

    Today Dillon Gee returns to the mound for the first time since July 2012, Gee had emergency surgery last year to repair a damaged and obstructed artery in his shoulder after his pitching arm went numb. We are all expecting Dillon to pick up today where he left off. My only concern is the cold Temps even thou the surgery he had restored the feeling in his pitching hand that cold may affect him more than normal. He is taking nitroglycerin tablets which will help expand his blood vessels when the cold weather starts impacting his ability to feel the baseball and he thinks he will be fine.

    Lineup for today’s game Collin Cowgill, cf Justin Turner, 2b David Wright, 3b Ike Davis, 1b Marlon Byrd, rf
    Lucas Duda, lf John Buck, c Ruben Tejada, ss and Dillon Gee on the mound. Murph gets the day off Collins just wanting to give Turner some playing time at second. Jordany Valdespin also will get a start this weekend not sure where yet

    Shawn Marcum is due to be examined in New York today yesterday he still had significant discomfort running from his shoulder up through his neck. We are hoping for only good news for Shawn.

    If you are anything like me you are interested in what is going on with our Affiliates which start today
    In case you are interested I thought I would post the lineups in AA and AAA

    AAA LAS VEGAS 51s
    Pitchers: Robert Carson, Gonzalez Germen, Justin Hampson, Aaron Laffey, Collin McHugh, Dylan Owen, Greg Peavey, Armando Rodriguez, Chris Schwinden, Carlos Torres, Zack Wheeler and Catchers: Travis d'Arnaud, Kai Gronauer, Landon Powell Infielders: Brian Bixler, Eric Campbell, Wilmer Flores, Reese Havens, Brandon Hicks, Zach Lutz, Josh Satin, Omar Quintanilla Outfielders: Andrew Brown, Jamie Hoffmann, Juan Lagares

    In AA BINGHAMTON Pitchers: John Church, Mark Cohoon, Erik Goeddel, Darin Gorski, Chase Huchingson, Adam Kolarek, Jack Leathersich, Cory Mazzoni, Rafael Montero, Tyler Pill, Adrian Rosario, Logan Verrett, Jeff Walters Catchers: Juan Centeno, Blake Forsythe, Francisco Pena Infielders: Allan Dykstra, Rhyne Hughes, Richard Lucas, Danny Muno, Josh Rodriguez, Wilfredo Tovar Outfielders: Darrell Ceciliani, Alonzo Harris, Cesar Puello, Cory Vaughn

    Not so great today as Mets lose 2-1 to the Padres. Dillon Gee was very good over six innings plus allowing only one run but other than John Buck's two hits, including his second homer, and Justin Turner's three hits Mets did absolutely NOTHING at the plate. Too many strikeouts in the heart of the order....DWright and Lucas Duda three times and Ike Davis and Marlon Byrd twice. At least we won the opening season series...can't go 162-0!

    Re: NY Mets 2013

    All in all I thought Dillon Gee had a pretty good start last night, I had hoped he would pick up where he left off last year. He tossed six and one-third innings with one run and three hits his velocity was down a tad from last year, looked like just under 90, and his control was not always there, and the sharpness of his pitchers needs tom improve. During spring training he struggled a bit with his release point and command but that defiantly improved, it was a very encouraging start. Very important is that he felt healthy.
    Yesterday I suggested that the cold weather might affect his pitching but Dillon said the circulation in his hand was not affected by the cold weather.
    Not much offense courtesy of great pitching from Padres pitcher but that is going to happen to all teams all year its baseball and sometimes when you come up against really good pitching you lose games no worries by me, so we settle for a series
    The exception was Justin Turner who Terry Collins gave a chance to play yesterday, JT answered the call by going 3-4. If you wondered why Turner had a different walk up song for each at bat it was cause he has not yet made up his mind which one to use this year. A lot of other players are stickin with what they have used from the past, Murphy will stay with Dropkick’s “I'm Shipping up To Boston” and Ike will keep The Stones “Start Me Up”. Suggestions to J T for a new song have come from his grandmother and Jeff Wilpons granddaughter but I would not be surprised to see him stick with "Call Me Maybe." JT jokingly credits the Carly Rae Jensen song, which he has been using since last May, for the spike in his batting average.. Justin is just havin a little fun with all this till he settles on a song or two.

    Shaun Marcum was examined in New York, underwent an MRI that revealed inflamed nerves in his neck, Marcum was treated with what they called trigger-point injections which should help him recover. He’s back in Port St. Lucie, and rest for at least two days. Marcum has not pitched in a game since mid March so even if his neck and shoulder pain goes away it would take some time to get ready for a major league game. Looking like Aaron Laffey will be promoted from AAA Las Vegas on Sunday to take Marcum's rotation spot and Darin Gorski will go from AA Binghamton to Las Vegas to fill Laffey's rotation spot.

    Next up the Marlins who are kind of a mess now they have lost all three of their games scoring only one run so far this season. After that we go to Philly another team that is a shell of their former self. We should be able to at least win both of those series maybe even sweep one

    Tonight Jeremy Hefner will be on the mound for us I am looking forward to see Jeremy and what he can bring us. The rest of the lineup will be: Valdespin, Murphy, Wright, Davis, Byrd, Duda, Buck, Tejada, and Hefner

    New blue jerseys tonight

    Re: NY Mets 2013

    Yesterday was a good win following the weak effort in support of Hefner's nice start on Friday. The Mets were pretty sloppy and seemed a little unfocused Friday nite. Yesterday, even though Tejada still has a case of the yips, turned out much better, in large part to the indispensible Mr John Buck. The whole lineup contributed, but Buck came through each time with men on base. DWright had 3 hits, Murph a big triple, Ike, Cowgill, Capt Kirk, etc. Jon Niese pitched effectively and held the fort until the offense could really put it in gear. Have to hope Laffey comes up with a good effort today, as the Mets seek to take the series. Let's Go Mets!!

    Re: NY Mets 2013

    Yep, have to agree with syam's take about how important John Buck has been to the lineup, with a two run double and two run scoring sacrifice flies in his times at bat with runners on base. Collin Cowgill delivered a home run off the bench and DWright, Daniel Murphy, and Mike Baxter helped generate the offense, Ike Davis had a solid day at the plate as well in the Met's 7-3 victory over the Miami Marlins. Jon Niese was very effective allowing two runs on eight hits over six innings, but was sabotaged by a little sloppiness in the seventh with the relief and some defensive miscue, but with Buck and Cowgill adding on after that the Mets took care of business to seal the victory.

    Sad to see what's happening with Dickey but not a shock either. You can't let one career year blind you to the fact he's getting older and the fact that when he did face AL teams last year,he got clobbered.

    Great win for the Mets yesterday, one of those "team wins" that is essential to a winning organization culture. Mets came back from a 3-1 deficit and win in the ninth 4-3. Aaron Laffey struggled in less than five innings but the bullpen was tremendous. Something that I'm sure warms the cockles of sonny's heart was seeing Daniel Murphy pounding his second homer already of the year and even with such a shortened spring training seeing Murph on the ball and driving it much more than last year. And after Ruben Tejada got plunked seeing his buddy Kirk Nieuwenhuis looking so disciplined at bat and lashing a ball to left that with his hustle he made into a double, and exuberantly scoring the winning run when Marlon Byrd against a drawn in infield, slapped a ball down the third base line. Seeing David Wright jumping out of the dugout leading the boys on the field to celebrate with Tejada, Kirk and Byrd was so nice. I was so jazzed I was jumping!!!!!!!!

    Marvelous win by the Mets Sunday! Was nice to see this outcome in our favor, all too often in the past, it's been the other way around. Beautiful work by the bullpen shutting down the FISH over the last five innnings. Some big hits by Murph (HR), Capt Kirk, and of course Marlon Byrd. Great base running by Tejada and Kirk in the ninth. Was very surprising to see the Marlins play the infield in with Byrd at the plate, but will take the money and run. Jose Fernandez was awesome for the Marlins, showing a lot of poise for a 20 yr old. We'll be seeing more of him over the years. Mets on to Philly with Matt Harvey against Roy Halliday, should be fun. Lets go Mets!!

    Re: NY Mets 2013

    Been away a couple of days wanna thank you guys for keeping the thread alive.

    Sooo how great was that 9th yesterday I mean come on that was fun or as Syam called it "Marvelous" with The Mets winning their first walk-off game of the year thanks to a two-run RBI single by Marlon Byrd. It all started with Ruben Tejada gettin hit by a pitch and then the little devil went first-to-third on a Kirk Nieuwenhuis' single, Rubin remembered that Juan Pierre's has a weak arm and took full advantage if it which then allowed Nieuwenhuis to take second, it was at that point I think the Marlins were “huh What just happened”. But wait it got better when for some crazy reason Marlins manager decided to bring the infield in for Byrd, seriously, What was he thinking, did anyone tell him it was a one run game and a base hit wins it for us? I mean just what did he think Byrd was gonna do there? Amazing! So then Byrd hits that ground ball down the third base line and that’s when Gary Cohen (ya gotta love him) went nutz “Here comes Tejada, here comes Nieuwenhuis and the Mets win it” such excitement in his voice as only Gary can it just made the whole thing that much more exciting I mean if your blood wasn’t pumpin after that call check your pulse But getting back to Rubin he has been struggling at short committed four errors in the first five games of the season, dono what is going on there but yesterday he won back some of our love with that great base running He has continued his successful 3-2 count hits I counted five 3-2 counts where he reached base three times, including twice yesterday. Rubin really needed that yesterday he has been getting the support of all his teammates thru his troubles giving him the love and support. You may have seen Murphy who when he got back to the dugout after that win went up to “Ruby Tuesday“(that what Murph calls Rubin”) and gave him a that-a boy hug. But that’s what those guys do support and love one other, the brothers ya see. Murphy who has shown impressive power to the opposite field and up the middle tripling to center field on Saturday and homering yesterday you should know that homer traveled the same trajectory as the triple but that time it went over the wall

    Aaron Laffey had a rough time of it allowing 10 hits just over 4 innings he seemed to run of gas rather early but still Terry Collins said that Aaron would get another start although it could be delayed till we need a fifth starter and because we have Thursday off the Mets can delay using their fifth starter until April 16. Still it was good he got a chance to get stretched out, part of his getting tired ya have to think is it was the first time he ever threw over 80 pitches this year and he is after all as we say yesterday a contact guy, so there will be hits, ya just hope not just so many .He did throw strikes problem was he got pounded yesterday with his fastball which I though was so-so although he did threw a lot of em over the middle of the plate and ya have to say he had some pretty nifty movement on his sinker and slider, funny he did not use those pitches much. I have to say I was interested in seeing how Laffey took total control of calling the game even thou Recker sometimes showed better pitch choices only to have Aaron shrug him off and make poor pitch choices. I hope Collins teams him up with Buck next time out and Laffey is smart enough to let John call the game. We shall see.

    I had concerns for our bull pen the first couple of games but Burke, Edgin, Atchison, Hawkins and Scott Rice limited the Marlins to just three hits. Atchisonj and Parnell are both looking really good so far.

    I have to give credit to that new kid on the Marlins staff Jose Fernandez who totally lived up to the hype. He made us look bad not only sending the first of our guys back to the bench but strike out eight in only five innings. His fastball was flirting with 95 mph and he was throwing all his pitches for strikes, and don’t get me started on that killer curve.

    Also good to see Nieuwenhuis bat come to life yesterday, we know “Newsies” tremendous defense out there in center but we need his bat to give us more hopefully that will start now.

    Tonight we start a three game series in Philly with Harvey facing Halladay ought to be a great game can’t wait to see Matt out there again he is so much fun to watch. The game will be on SNY stating at 7:10 but KB has Terry Collins on the 6 o’clock show before the game to sort thru the good and bad of week 1.

    A thorough trouncing of the Phillies and Roy Halliday last nite. Roy didn't look like himself at all. Matt Harvey was very good again, with another solid 7 innings. John Buck, with another huge 3 run homer, and most of the rest of the lineup contributed. Murphy continues hot, DWright with a couple of hits, and Reuben Tejada with a big 2 RBI single. It's fun watching this kind of baseball. Let's hope it can continue as the season progresses. Let's go Mets!!

    Re: NY Mets 2013

    Syam, you said it, we may not win a championship but we are gonnna have a blast watching them this year.

    Even when Harvey doesn’t have his best stuff he was better than most pitchers when they do. That changeup is still impressive he threw some nice braking balls, but he wasn’t at his sharpest with that fast ball falling behind too many batters, when he did not have his fastball he went to his slider a lot which was effective especially when he need to make an off sped pitch where he got a lot of swings and misses till he was able to get that fastball goin, he did eventually in the middle of the game, still he managed to show no fear of Howard moving him back off the plate and getting him out with that high fastball, Howard who? Bring him on!.
    You can hear more from Harvey tonight on the pregame when KB speaks with him.

    As to Murph we all know, Daniel included, how important spring training is but when you are as hardworking dedicated and as Murphy is the result is batting .308 a week into the season after having had almost no spring training. I have heard many times Daniel talk about hitting; it is a science with him often headin back to the video room after an at bat to study and evaluate it and when the at bat did not deliver figuring out why.

    Looks like our offense will give us more than most thought, with Wright, Murphy, Buck, Byrd and Cowgill, and still to get it going Davis, Duda and Nieuwenhuis. Our starters have been terrific but whoda thought we would have an effective pen again as well; well it is shaping up nicely thank you very much.

    Tejada did it again last night; he owns that 3-2 count

    Out in Vegas AAA Jeurys Familia has been named closer and yesterday he picked up his first save in the Vegas 4-3 win. Over the years I had made a lot of trips to Buffalo and reported how things were going with our AAA team but this year with them out in Vegas it will be difficult to make many trips. I will however be there when Matt den Dekker returns from his injury, Dekker is expected to go to Vegas in early June and if he does I will head out there to see how he is doing. The cast on his wrist comes off at the end of this month and he he should be able to resume baseball activity in late May.

    I know great pitchers decline as they get olde rbut Halladay seems to have fallen off a cliff faster then many others i've seen.

    My bad, I meant to mention Halliday in my post above. As a Mets fan I normally want to see Roy get owned by the Mets and win. But yesterday I had an uncomfortable reaction watching him pitch, I felt sad and found it disturbing to watch him struggle. I don’t want him to go out that way I am seriously hoping for him to get it together again and not look so uncomfortable and distressed as he has in last outings. A pitcher with his abilities and talent has to be admired and respected. It pains me to read what some in the media are writing almost enjoying his decline. It’s not right it’s not fair He was one of the greats and we need to treat him with respect.

    Also while glad we beat him don't want to see Roy Halliday disparaged as a finished has been. No one who really loves baseball would do that. Hopefully he can regain his edge and prove the doubters and naysayers wrong( of course not against us, though!) He's just shy of 200 wins, has been one of the best at pitching in his era and hopefully despite his struggles Roy has some good years left in that prize arm to stick it to the critics.

    So wonderful to see Matt Harvey showing just how good he can be... as mentioned not his best, most consistent control of his fastball but had everything else working while still able to get the fastball going later. Nine K's, 19 in his first two starts this year. It's even more amazing because I heard some people outside the Mets were saying Harvey was overrated, he was a 2 or 3 and never had the command or control of other pitches to be an ace. Well, sonny knows what kind of heart this kid has besides his talent, and the Mets had high hopes for him too if they saw he could more fully develop and control his other pitches. And to think potentially Zack Wheeer is supposed to be a true ace, and better than Harvey! Plus we have a pipeline of other potential rotation studs, and I've mentioned them: Noah Syndegaard, Mike Fulmer, Cory Mazzoni, Rafael Montero, Hansel Robles... plus the increasingly confident and regarded Jon Niese in our own rotation, with Dillon Gee and Jeremy Hefner making for an outstanding back of the order.

    John Buck is a godsend....he's definitely after working on his swing in the offseason going to be a big help starting as now or backing up Travis D'Arnaud in the future. He knew he wasn't a .192 hitter like last season in Toronto and had hit as high as 20 homers and around .280 a couple of years ago ad we know he is tremendous in the clubhouse and in calling a game and defending his position..his pitchers love him.

    Oh so happy to see Daniel Murphy doing his thing...two hits yesterday, showing the ability to drive the ball when needed, putting easy, good swings and really looking like he wants to be as good a player as he can. He hit .320 before he was hurt in 2011 in over 400 at bats...he hits doubles and now with two homers already he shows with his adjustments he can turn on the ball and suppply some power. Tejada's doing his clutch thing even with his early season problems, and DWright has been solid. We just need to get Ike, Duda, and consistency from Cowgill and Marlon Byrd as well as Kirk Niewenhuis when he is out there.

    Thanks sonny for the update on Matt den Dekker and hope he gets out there asap, and we can see him at CitiField before September.

    Well, Gee, he certainly didn't have "it" last nite. Pretty miserable outing, hopefully he'll be back track next time out. John Buck and Dan Murphy continued to pound the ball last nite though, so that was all the good news. Game was over pretty early, Cliff Lee pitched a good game, and the Mets never quite got untracked after falling behind early. I have thrown that game out as an aberration, hoping Hefner shows more good stuff tonite. Let's go Mets!!

    Damn syam, wish I could keep it short and sweet like you but the Italian in me has to go all over the place! Gee needs to be in the zone and good control to be effective and he just wasn't fooling anyone last night. Jack Buck off his first week or so here looks like the move of the offseason for Sandy Alderson...and lol he's only the backup for the real big new thing in fellow catcher and part of that RA Dickey trade to the Jays, Travis D' Arnaud. So happy with Murh's play especially with him missing all that time in spring training, he looks frisky out there and is driving the ball too.

    Re: NY Mets 2013

    Mets look bad a second straight time to the Phillies with starter Jeremy Hefner bombed for five runs( including giving up two homers)
    in the first inning, going only three innings allowing six hits and five runs. La Troy Hawkins after a fine job in relief by Josh Edgin going two scoreless innings gave up a two run homer in the sixth. Mets bright points were John Buck's fifth homer and Lucas Duda's launching two missiles of his own, as well as three his for Jordanny Valdespin and two for Ruben Tejada. Mets lose to Philly in a final score of 7-3 in a game which saw a nearly half hour rain delay in the fourth.

    In both losses to Philly, pitchers Dillon Gee and Jeremy Hefner, who rely so much on command and location were plagued by inability to find either. One of the most delicate points about how well the Mets perform is that they need the back part of therir staff to at least be solid and consistent, and without the command of their pitches Gee and Hefner in particular are particularly vulnerable because they generally don't break the radar gun with impressive velocity.

    Off night tonight, as our boys are going on a screwy trip that has em going from AL to NL for a weekend series starting tomorrow in Minnesota followed by four games in Colorado against the Rockies. New schedule is kinda weird, as interleague play is spread out through the season rather than particular series.

    Re: NY Mets 2013

    Well I am not one of those guys who is going to start ringing my hands over the bottom of our rotation. We just haven’t played enough baseball yet to start overreacting to a couple of bad outings. I expect Warthen and his coaches to start working immediately with the boys and get them back on track and I have faith that they will. No sense going over what happened in the last two games let’s just say it was not pretty, actually it was pretty ugly, but again let’s not start to panic….yet.

    How about the Dude and two homers yesterday it almost made up for the bad pitching…well maybe not. .But still it is what we have been waiting for him to do and it’s very exciting to see Duda’s three-hit game and two, count em two, shots to right field. Loved to see him wait out a low change up and blast it a great sign for Lucas.

    Now about Murphy and his bonehead move last night, in case you were one of the lucky ones who missed it Valdespin was on third and Murph was on second, Ike Davis hit a fly ball to shallow centerfield, The Phillies Ben Revere grabbed the ball as Valdespin tagged from third base. But then Daniel did not wait to see if Revere caught the ball and took off for third and was doubled off second before Valdespin could score, part of the goof up was Jordany’s fault as well cause he was not running and should have scored. Murphy has been red hot with the bat and doing a terrific job in the field but he had to be sure that ball wasn’t caught he has been around too long to be making mistakes like that. To his credit Daniel did own up to the mistake and understands what he did, or failed to do, cost us a run. Thing is, I praise Murph all the time so when something like this happens I think I have license to call him on it. I do it out of love and respect for one of the hardest working most conscientious ball payers I know.

    But back to Jordany Valdespin what is up with that childish behavior on the field, it just continues and is getting a little old he needs to grow up; watching him gallop to third base and then celebrate with a couple chest thumps was sickening. I liked that third base coach Tim Teufel blasted him for it, Tim was not about to let Jordany get away with those juvenile, be it unprofessional behavior. The crowd got on him as well with boos, they remember last year when Valdespin hit a three-run home run then jogged the bases as he crossed the plate saying “I am the man.” I like what Jordany has been bringing to the table I love his speed I like him in leadoff and his ability to put bat on ball but I have a real problem and have since the first time I saw him in Brooklyn with his immaturity. I want this kid in the lineup as often as he can be but he will never gain my respect as long as he continues to act the fool.

    The guys will take today off and enjoy a snowstorm about to hit Minnesota it will snow into tomorrow with 10-12 inches expected so who knows if we will even have a game. The forecast for tomorrow's Game: High of 36/Low of 28 with 40 percent chance of more snow.

    Horwitz doing his part helping shovel in front of the hotel, don’t be surprised if Jay decides to build a snowman.

    Re: NY Mets 2013

    Nah, not panicking but do hate to lose these games...some in the media of course love to get off and on the bandwagon depending on the teams' fortunes just to make the dollars. And some fans take things way to heart and get swept into bandwagon thinking too. It's never good to get too down this early on a slump period or get too exuberant for an early season winning streak. Season is 162 games, and the most important thing is how you finish during the stretch of the season.

    One thing I got pissed about in the papers was the criticism of Murphy's baserunning play without adding how he owned up to it...sonny like he mentioned is encouraging and positive because of Murph's makeup and when he gets on him it's to be constructive
    and Murph doesn't have a problem with that but the press just likes to rip sometimes without any balance or context, and no one should be expected to be too happy about that .

    Buck's 5th homer.....what a start and Lucas Duda is showing signs of being focused at the plate, and with his power as he showed last night he can be an awesome weapon in the middle of that lineup. Read where they want to eventually settle Murph maybe in the fifth or sixth spot because of his ability to get extra base hits being conducive to more RBI but for now will keep him second in the order.

    Valdespin is no Lastings Milledge to be sure, but his immaturity may eventually cause the Mets to dump him no matter what the considerable physical talent. If you don't have a serious, dedicated approach to the game...if it's about you and your drama and the team is way behind in your considerations then Valdy will write his own ticket out of town. Like sonny says though he has got so much ability you want to see him make the most of it because it can help a team immensely when properly focused.

    Damn this weather is crazy...summer warmth here for a couple of days followed by thunderstorms, sharp cooling, clouds and more rain...goodness knows if sonny's right if we have a game tomorrow with all that snow forecast! Always a hoot to see Jay game for anything...be it filling in for Captain America himself David Wright, leading the Mets in a cartooon character version of the Harlem Shuffle, bringing his handy shovel to help clean up the snow....can't wait for his next adventures!

    Thanks for pointing that out Saucy, I love getting on him when he screws up, he got plenty of ribbing about that blunder cause Murphs teammates know he can take it and roll with it with the spirit of good natured fun for which it is intended. Any criticism about Daniel that comes from me is always positive and from the heart if I thought for a second it would bother him I would not do it.
    Still waitin on word about the game tonight not a good sign when KB packs two winter coats for a road trip and judging from the pics it does not look good.

    Update on tonight’s game

    No official word yet but Murph says the field is all cleaned up and ready for play but it will be very cold
    The fields looks a heck of a lot better today than it did in the picture I posted earlier taken yesterday



    Hopefully Murphy can continue his 10-15 success against the Twins pitcher Worley

    Another thing to watch for will be David Wright whose next RBI will allow him to pass Mike Piazza (89) for the most in Mets franchise history in interleague play.

    John Buck could become the 1st Mets player since David Wright in June 2007 to homer in four straight games.

    In all probability we will have baseball tonight the game will be on SNY starting at 8

    Nice pics from the guys! Damn the first one at the park was amazing...here we are in spring and in Minnnapolis Mother Nature
    hasn't got the word! Pretty one especially from the hotel!

    Target Field looks great, and thankfully as Murph updated to sonny it looks ready to play. Don't expect any short sleeves tonight, though! It's rainy and cool here so at least though we don't have to deal with the snow and it's not nearly as cold...wonder how it's going to be against the Rockies next week as that's the boys next destination? As bad as the Metrodome was, at least in bad weather you could get the game in but indoor baseball like that isn't real baseball. Plus they had one of the worst astroturf fields ever! God it was like playing baseball on a giant pool table!

    Great win yesterday at freezing Target Field, 16-5 Mets shallacking of the Twins highlighted by a grand slam (home run #6) by the scorching John Buck, three hits and 4 RBI by David Wright including a triple and a double, and four hits and 4 RBI by Daniel Murphy, including a bases loaded drive off the right center wall for a three run scoring double. Also getting in the multi hit parade was three hits for Jordanny Valdespin leading off and two for Ruben Tejada. Jon Niese wasn't great in the cold air and gave up five runs in five innings but got much more than enough run support for the win and was assisted by a flawless bullpen performance over the last four innings.I'm sure that while the Mets would love to play in a more springlike atmosphere our boys will take a football style cold this whole weekend if they can get production like this!

    WOW!! Didn't see the game, but looking at the box score and reading stories of the game it appears the Mets were quite impressive last nite!! We really need to see Ike get some hits, but John Buck is just awesome!! The bullpen put together 4 solid innings with a big lead and didn't give the Twins any inkling of a comeback. I believe the Mets have had great success against Worley, now of the Twins, formerly with the Phils, so I wasn't too shocked that the Mets had a good nite at the plate. More of the same, please, Let's go Mets!!

    What can I add to what Saucy wrote about yesterday’s game it was a hoot to watch. Even the weather played a part in the fun with the boys in the booth joking about it and of course KB and that hat. Seriously those guys make the games always add some fun to the games. Even the DJ got into the act paying Christmas music lot of fun. In spite of how cold it was a lot of the guys said it did not feel so bad manly cause of the lack of any wind. But those hot showers after the game were heaven.

    Yup Syam you missed a great one and I agree "more of the same please"

    Collins will change things a bit today.
    Lineup today will be Cowgill, Murphy, Wright, Buck, Duda, Byrd, Davis, Turner, Tejada, Harvey and yes, Ike Davis will bat seventh in batting order that kid is really struggling again. Turner who also needs some at bats will DH. If you wonder why no Jordany Valdespin it’s cause Cowgill 3-for-3 vs the pitcher Diamond, Duda is also hitting well against the lefties so he is in. Maybe we will see Jordany in some spot later in game.

    So sad to her about Reyes getting hurt so bad, Valdespin spoke to him last night, Reyes was sad and told him he tore ligaments and expects to be out 3 months.

    Sorry to hear about Jose Reye's ankle injury...does look like he could miss three months. Hopefully he will be able to maintain the explosiveness as a runner coming back but with a bad ankle injury his best asset might well be lost for the season at least.

    Well today while it was cold again at Target Field in Minnesota it was hot for Matt Harvey, who for six and two thirds innings had a no hitter. Gave up a screaming line drive shot off the right field foul pole to first baseman Justin Morneau to end the no hit bid but was fantastic over eight innings only allowing two hits including the homer, while striking out six and walking only two. He was masterful and in total command showing off a variety of pitches that impressed former Met Ron Gardenhire, now the Twins manager who called him a "horse" . Matt's fearlessness and ability is making him in his first full MLB campaign a pitcher who's performances are getting to be a must watch. Mets win 4-2 scoring all four runs in the fifth, started by Marlon Byrd's first Mets homer, a booming drive to left, and RBI singles by Colin Cowgill, Daniel Murphy and David Wright. The scorching Murph had two hits today and the DH for the game Justin Turner had three hits and scored a run. Keep it going, boys!!!!!!!!!!

    Well we were expecting thus and now it is official, cause the forecast is for freezing rain throughout the day this afternoons Twins game has been postponed. The game will be made up on Aug. 19 which was to be off-day after the Mets were supposed to fly home from San Diego.
    It’s not looking much better for our next series in Colorado, rain and snow is forecast for at least two AND the temperatures may go down to 14 degrees on Wednesday.

    That's a downer, sonny! Bad enough the postponement today because of the wintry mix mess but Denver's forecast for the Rockies series seems downright awful! Bet the boys can't wait to get back to the East Coast....not getting back to summer yet like we had on Tuesday and Wednesday but the temps will seem downright balmy in the upper 50's to around 60 next weekend when they get back.

    I KNOW you were jazzed by Matt Harvey's tremendous game yesterday, and two of the biggest offensive stars being Murph and Justin Turner! Matt is getting big props by other clubs now, he's the real deal and looks like an ace in the making...maybe with Zach Wheeler later this year we get two aces... Mets pitching is bringing summer warmth and memories of Mets great staffs past to Mets fans!

    Great start from Matt Harvey on Saturday! I was hoping he would not come inside to Morneau, but it is what it is. Just a superb performance. Just heard that the Mets were postponed today, and with the forecast what it is for Denver, the Mets may not play all week, and some rain is in the forecast for the East Coast on Friday! Some springs are just not good for baseball, but lets' hope for the best. What, no Buck HR yesterday???? He sucks, get rid of him, lol. Let's go Mets!!

    Looking like we will finally have some baseball after two snow delays. Split squad games today if weather holds up the forecast is for a high of 44 and a low of 31, with rain changing to snow during the day. Dillon Gee will pitch the first game at 3:10 p.m.
    No word yet on who will pitch the second game tonight at 8:40, although Jeremy Hefner seemed a more likely option than Aaron Laffey to face the lefty Jeff Francis. Collins does not wanna fool with Harvey’s schedule, so that means he will face Stephen Strasburg and the Nats on Friday at Citi Field.

    The Mets and Rockies will all wear No. 42 jerseys for the afternoon game today to honor Jackie Robinson.
    Then in the second game the teams will wear throwback 1993 jerseys to commemorate Colorado’s first major league game.

    The guys have been going bonkers not playing they can’t do much except work in doors and it is getting old, Only so many movies you can watch and card games you can play.

    Daniel Murphy who is the player union rep went with Sandy Alderson yesterday to a meeting to discuss makeup scenarios.

    The whole team was gathered around the TV all day yesterday watching the horrible events in Boston.

    Matt Harvey managed to get his bull pen in yesterday in the snow what a trooper




    And Ike got some barefoot swings of a tee.

    Re: NY Mets 2013

    Terrible day yesterday as the terrorist attack on the Boston Marathon essentially pushed off all sports to the side, and I'm sure the Mets players and organization was very much remembering the attack on 9-11 and how much a city can be tested by evil such as these actions. New York came back strong and so will Boston. Thoughts and prayers go to the people of Boston and especially all those directly impacted by the attack.

    Mets played two wild games in Denver tonight.... game 1 this afternoon was delayed for two hours and tonight's nightcap ended past midnight here in New York. Lost both, with David Wright and Daniel Murphy highlighting the first game....DWright hitting two impressive drives but he made his first error in 67 games in the nightcap and was part iof a very sloppy efffort in that game that saw too many misplays joined by Mike Baxter, Brandon Lyon and Ruben Tejada as the Mets let an 8-2 lead evaporate to a tie that Colorado ended in the 10th with a base hit off Greg Burke(only remaining Met reliever) by Jordan Pacheco. Mets inflicted lots of damage in both games to both Rockies starters but couldn't solve the bullpen and were unable to extend their lead. Colorado took it to Dillon Gee in the opener, again he can't get past five innings. Mets had to usea parade of pitchers in the second for the shaky Aaron Laffey but were mostly betrayed by careless mistakes, most critical in the 8th Brandon Lyon muffing an easy comebacker and when Bobby Parnell came in to try to record a four out save with an 8-6 lead getting an easy bouncer to Ruben Tejada getting mindlessly thrown away over Ike Davis at first to score the tying runs. Ruben Tejada's inability to get his defense going this year is alarming as he already has 6 errors as opposed to last year's TOTAL of 12.

    Mets facing a rough weather day tomorrow, with the possibility of another doubleheader on Thursday when they have an early game on Friday(noon back at CitiField with Matt Harvey against the Nat's ace Stephen Strasburg). Going with my brother to Las Vegas tomorrow and not returning til late Saturday so I'll be taping the Mets against the Nats and the Harvey/Strasburg battle and hoping it will be a great one. See you guys when I get back though there is a chance I can post on my brother's iPAD Friday or Saturday before coming home.
    unofficial official mini meet Friday- Saturday April 11-12, 2014

    I have never liked baseball in Denver, and yesterday certainly adds to that feeling. Mets have had some horrible outings in that venue. Not much to add to Sausy's post, just some opportunities the Mets let slip away, no pun intended. Again Tejada seems to have problems in the cold, but he's not the scapegoat, it was a team effort in sloppy play. Let"s go Mets!! whenever you play again.

    Current temp in Denver is 19 deg, forecast for game time is 31 deg. Hopefully, we can escape there without any injuries.

    Re: NY Mets 2013

    Well the Mets got in to LaGuardia very late last night after a series from Hell, and were all very happy to be home and have that behind them; there was no fun to be had in that trip at all. A lot of the guys wanted to get home and get their housing life in NY in order. They had to endure some of the worst weather you could imagine. I am not gonna blame the loss all on the weather, after all, the opposing team played a well but it certainly contributed to it. I dono how the pitchers were even able to feel the ball and control what they tossed it had to have been very difficult. Then we had Tejada who cost us a game who simply could not cope at all with that cold. He is a warm weather dude never had an experience like that in his life and it showed, I think he will bounce back to his ole self now that he is away from the frigid weather. But again I am not blaming completely the Mets miserable outings on the weather; it would be too easy to blame the cold weather or the high altitude on the crappy performance. I understand that the Rockies also had to pitch in the same conditions and did not have as many problems especially the pen which allowed one earned run in 11 innings in the series. After showing some signs of promise The Mets bullpen was awful this week and ya could not help but compare what last year’s bullpen did falling behind in the count way too much which if you noticed forced some of them to come in with fastballs over the middle of the plate causing major damage done all over the pace. I have to point out Josh Edgin who is beginning to scare me now, where was his velocity it just isn’t where it was last year, it started going south going back to Spring Training. To make it worse he’s working up in the strike zone, his ball is really flat, and I did not see him making any adjustments. I have to watch and see what Pedro Feliciano is gonna do at St. Lucie, who knows maybe he will come around and be our guy.

    I am so bummed to hear that Travis d’Arnaud has a fracture in his left foot after he was hit with a foul ball in an AAA Las Vegas’ game Wednesday night. He is wearing a walking boot and got into NY this morning to be examined at the Hospital for Special Surgery to determine the extent of the injury. Depending on what the docs find and if he will need surgery he could be out for as little as a month or as long as two, Then there is the concern that it will heal properly, if it does not he could be plagued by that for the rest of his life. Injuries continue to affect D’Arnaud, he missed the entire second half of the 2012 season with an injury to his knee, and he suffered a back injury which shortened his season in 2010, I hate to say it but that poor kid is injury prone. I will keep in touch with him and let you guys know what’s next for him.

    So tonight is (we hope) the big night with the matchup of Harvey and Strasburg. I say “hope” cause the bad weather is not done with us yet and it is supposed to be stormy tonight with lots of on and off rain so who knows how the game will be affected. Shame too cause if they have delays it will affect how both guys pitch; they simply cannot just sit around between rain delays and be expected to pitch at their best. Another exciting matchup will be Matt Harvey vs. Bryce Harper, we are of course hoping for repeat of the last time Harper faced Harvey when Bryce struggled, going 0-for-4 with a pair of strikeouts.

    Re: NY Mets 2013

    What a great way to return home to Citi Field, with a resounding thumping of the Nats!! Matt Harvey totally outpitched Mr Strasburg, turning in another dazzling effort. His escape from the 7th innning, bases loaded, no out situation was awesome! He got a K, a foul pop to Buck, and a groundout to Murph to end the inning. Solid relief from Rice and Parnell closed out the game for the Mets pitchers. A big nite for the two big lefties in the Mets lineup, Ike and Duda each unloading two long bombs. Lets hope this gets both of them into a hot streak. All in all, a very nice win. Lets go Mets!!

    “HAR-VEY’s BETTER!”



    So chanted the crowd last night Matt is 4-0 with a 0.93 ERA, with ten hits and three home runs with nine walks and 32 strikeouts in a league-leading 29 innings. Yup I said League leading ,Harvey is the first pitcher in baseball’s modern era (like 1900) to win his first four starts while allowing no more than 10 hits in those four starts combined. Harvey’s 105th pitch to end his outing in the seventh inning was clocked at 96 mph. He was great again even thou he didn’t quite have the command of his off-speed pitches that prolly he would have liked to, but so what when he had pinpoint control of a fastball on both sides of the plate with movement in all direction, so it’s ok for him to be a little off with the other pitches. The true test of his awesomeness came in the seventh inning when he had the bases loaded and nobody out. He struck out Suzuki, got Bernandina to popup to the catcher, and got Span to groundout to second base. First time I saw him challenged like that and he came through like an ace. He is a bulldog on the mound, and man oh man did he show what he is made of especially with that seventh inning performance.Crowd chanting “HAR-VEY’s BETTER!” gave me goose bumps,

    If you are a reporet trying to get to Matt after the game good luck getting near him past the crowd of media



    After the game Matt and some of the boys met with true heroes from our military



    Also great to see was Ike Davis breaking out of a 7-for-50 slump with a single homer against Stephen Strasburg and a two-run homer off of Drew Storen, it was Ike’sixth multi-home run game of his career.
    So great to see my boy back in action doin what I know he can do hopefully tonight marks the beginning of the return of the Ike Man.

    Lucas Duda also homered off of Stephen Strasburg and again off Drew Storen it was his third multi-home run game of his career. The Dude looked so comfortable at the plate putting three nice swings on the ball and drove the ball each time to centerfield. If he and Ike along with Murph and Wright can continue slugging the way we need them to, this lineup is going to be amazing this season.
    It was the second time in Mets history that two players homered twice in the same game and both hit the homers in the same inning.

    Strasburg struggled a bit through six innings. But it was a hoot to watch these two go head-to-head. The crowd was soo into it, with the boys clearly amped up for this game, after the game when asked about how it felt challenging Harvey, Strasburg said”no big deal” ok Steve whatever you have to tell yourself

    It was an extra treat to have Ron Darling in the booth last night if you needed some instruction on the art of pitching you got it in spades from him

    This afternoon’s game on Fox is at 3 lineup Justin Turner SS Daniel Murphy 2B David Wright 3B
    John Buck C Ike Davis 1B Marlon Byrd RF Lucas Duda LF Collin Cowgill CF and Jeremy Hefner on the mound.
    Ruben Tejada will sit today but just as a precaution after that ankle injury. Tejada says he's fine, can run or hit if needed. This will be Justin Turner's ninth major league start and 13th major league game at shortstop JT will also lead off but I sorta wonder why not Cowgill.

    Dog day today and yes a few of the guys will bring their pets

    Re: NY Mets 2013

    Pretty good game today, all in all, even though Hefner didn't have much. I've already reached the conclusion that Laffey has to go. He has not impressed much at all, and was dreadful today. The Mets fell behind 4-0, before hitting a 5 spot with two outs. Laffey gave it up after getting the first two outs, then walking Harper before giving up a two run bomb to LaRoche. Both those guys are lefties as is Laffey. Make Harper hit his way on against you! don't walk him. The Mets tied the game on Buck double scoring Murph from first base. Josh Edgin pitched effectively, however, gave up the game winner to Harper, who hit a bomb to right field. He's gonna do that to a lot of pitchers before his career is over, so I don't hold that too much against Josh. THe Mets couldn't get much after that point and fell 7-6. Tomorrow's another day, Lets go Mets!!

    Re: NY Mets 2013

    Yeah Syam as you wrote it wasn’t a bad game. I had a good feeling in the ninth that maybe our big guns were gonna pull it off maybe even give us a walk off, and how sweet would that have been but it was not to be.

    Hef continues with his problem of not keeping that ball down which as a sinker-ball pitcher he needs to do, he's been keeping it up so far this year. He also needs to work on his delivery he just is not getting good sink or depth to his pitches. I guess the killer was Aaron Laffey who gave up those three runs in less than a full inning. He was designated for assignment and replaced on the roster Robert Carson who has been called up from AAA Las Vegas; he leaves Vegas with a 1.17 ERA. .

    The good news last night was we were able to send Gio Gonzalez to the showers early just as we did Strasburg so that felt good.

    I was real glad to see Ruben Tejada in there for that at bat I was concerned about that injury he had but he bounced right back which was nice to see. Murphy felt really bad about that throw that caused Rubin to come off the bag and tweak that ankleand no one was happier to see Rubin bounce back as Murph was.Rubin will be back in the lineup at short today.

    I forgot to mention yesterday that Travis d’Arnaud will not require surgery to repair a broken bone in his foot and will wear a boot and miss about eight weeks. It is the best case scenario to come out of this situation, even thou of course it is still a setback. Originally Travis could have come up in early to mid June but instead he will go back to the minors and continue working his way to Flushing. Of course we still don’t know if or when he will be promoted to the Majors but there should still be time for him.

    We go at it again this afternoon against the Nats the roster will be Jordany Valdespin CF Daniel Murphy 2B David Wright 3B Ike Davis 1B John Buck C Lucas Duda LF Mike Baxter RF Ruben Tejada SS Dillon Gee on the mound.

    Glad to see Laffey is "outta here!" as Gary Cohen might say. Looking for Dillon Gee to get in a good game, he needs to get on track quickly. Let's go Mets!!
