    You lose Matt Harvey and David Wright to injuries and you trade away Marlon Byrd and this is what ESPN is left with to promote your team for Sunday Night Baseball: #Mets injuries have left ESPN no other choice but to use Eric Young, Jr. in a SNB ad: http://t.co/rIPUSGaoXZ — Chase Hughes (@chasehughesCSN) August…

    Mets manager Terry Collins said earlier this month that he wasn’t counting on David Wright to make it back from his right hamstring strain this season, but his star third baseman is beginning to make some tangible progress. Adam Rubin of ESPNNewYork spotted Wright testing his hamstring by running in the outfield prior this afternoon…

  3. David Wright may miss the rest of the season

    David Wright

    Mets third baseman David Wright has been out since August 3 with a strained right hamstring. The initial prognosis had him missing three to five weeks, which would have had him back towards the end of August at the earliest, but manager Terry Collins is aware there is a chance the cornerstone of his lineup…

  4. The Mets calling up prospect Wilmer Flores to play third base

    Wilmer Flores

    With David Wright expected to miss the next 3-5 weeks with a Grade 3 strain of his right hamstring, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports that there’s a “good chance” the Mets will call up prospect Wilmer Flores to play third base in the next week. Mets fans have been clamoring for Flores’…

    Mets third baseman David Wright was put on the disabled list Saturday with a right hamstring strain. Now there’s somewhat of a timetable for his return. According to Adam Rubin of ESPNNewYork.com, Wright has been diagnosed with a Grade 3 hamstring strain — which is likely to take 3-5 weeks to recover from. He’ll be…

  6. David Wright placed on disabled list with hamstring strain

    David Wright Getty

    The Mets announced this morning that third baseman David Wright was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a right hamstring strain. Outfielder Mike Baxter has been recalled from Triple-A Las Vegas to take his place on the active roster. Wright suffered the injury in last night’s game against the Royals while he was running…

  7. David Wright exits with apparent hamstring injury

    Aug 2, 2013, 11:01 PM EDT

    New York Mets v Atlanta Braves

    Mets third baseman David Wright had to be removed from the game in the tenth inning of tonight’s game against the Royals after beating out an infield single. About three quarters of the way down the line, Wright grabbed at the back of his leg and limped his way through the bag. Pitcher Zack Wheeler…

  8. The Mets totally shellack the Nats in the first game of today’s double header

    Jul 26, 2013, 5:02 PM EDT

    New York Mets v Washington Nationals - Game One

    I don’t guess one game of a doubleheader is usually that notable, but since it was the only day game today the Mets-Nats affair got my attention. And even if it hadn’t beforehand, man, it would have after it got going. The Mets demolished the Nationals 11-0. Jenrry Mejia got the start for New York…

    Chevrolet Home Run Derby

    Following the Home Run Derby from on-site is … weird. It’s a made for TV event, really. And when you’re sitting out behind the left field foul pole in a temporary press box that is sort of insulated from the sounds of the ballpark you lose your gravity pretty quickly. I had the MLB.com feed…

    We get it. Not everybody is into the Home Run Derby. But some of you are and that’s totally fine. We’re here if you want to talk (or complain) about it. Feel free to use this as an open thread to discuss the festivities at Citi Field this evening. Below you’ll find the eight participants…

  12. Ballplayers: paid to hit and pitch, but they talk to the media anyway

    Jul 15, 2013, 4:30 PM EDT

    Media Day

    We’re in the middle of the NL player availabilities right now. The AL players will be made available in a few minutes. Somewhere right now there is a press conference about the Home Run Derby about to start. I’m not going to it because no one will be honest and say “Well, I’m just gonna…

  13. Previewing the Home Run Derby: Prince Fielder aims for third crown

    Jul 15, 2013, 3:44 PM EDT

    Prince Fielder

    Prince Fielder can join Ken Griffey Jr. as the only three-time winners of the Home Run Derby on Monday night, but to do it, he’ll have to best Chris Davis, who is currently on pace to hit 60 bombs this year. This year’s Home Run Derby field is unusual in that it features just three…

  14. Terry Collins wants Pirates fans to “reevaluate”

    Jul 14, 2013, 8:45 PM EDT

    Philadelphia Phillies v New York Mets

    The Home Run Derby created some unexpected drama when Mets third baseman David Wright picked childhood friend Michael Cuddyer over Pirates third baseman Pedro Alvarez. This caught the ire of Pirates fans, who felt that Alvarez was much more deserving of a selection. On Thursday, Cuddyer’s teammate and fellow Derby participant Carlos Gonzalez bowed out…

  15. Pirates beat Mets in 11, earn 55th win

    Jul 12, 2013, 11:10 PM EDT

    New York Mets v Pittsburgh Pirates

    Between Pedro Alvarez‘s first-inning, two-run home run and Jordy Mercer‘s walk-off RBI single to center in the 11th, the Pirates couldn’t muster much offense against Mets starter Jeremy Hefner and the bullpen. Pirates starter Charlie Morton held the Mets down through five, but allowed an RBI single to David Wright in the sixth and a…

  16. The 2013 Home Run Derby participants have been announced

    Just announced on ESPN’s SportsCenter, here are the participants for the 2013 Home Run Derby, which will take place next Monday at 8 p.m. ET at Citi Field in New York. Keep in mind that all of the players selected were also chosen for the All-Star Game. So there’s no Giancarlo Stanton here. Oh well.…

  17. Pouliot’s midseason award picks: NL MVP

    Jul 5, 2013, 6:37 PM EDT

    Carlos Gonzalez

    Now it’s time for the NL midseason MVP, and this year’s picture to date is just as confusing as last year’s was, in my opinion. Of course, the BBWAA decided on Buster Posey pretty handily last year(27 of 32 first-place votes), but I ultimately picked Yadier Molina from a close group of five players. Here…

  20. And That Happened: Sunday’s scores and highlights

    Jun 24, 2013, 5:30 AM EDT

    New York Mets v Philadelphia Phillies

    Mets 8, Phillies 0: Matt Harvey blanks the Phillies on two hits for six innings and David Wright went 4 for 5 with two doubles, a triple and a homer. I know the Mets have problems, but man, when it goes right for them it’s really pretty. Something about the purity of an ace and…

  21. And That Happened: Thursday’s scores and highlights

    Jun 21, 2013, 6:55 AM EDT

    New York Mets v Atlanta Braves

    Mets 4, Braves 3: Good news: two solo homers for David Wright and five scoreless innings from the bullpen. Bad news: The reason the pen was needed for five innings is that Jon Neise had to leave the game with shoulder problems. Braves news: ugh, you guys have looked positively crappy of late. Tigers 4,…

  22. Two words for you: mini bar

    Mini Bar

    USA Today talked with Bronson Arroyo, David Freese, C.J. Wilson and David Wright about their travel preferences. Here’s the short version: The longer version: food is important. First thing they check when they check in to a hotel? Room service hours and if breakfast is still being served. And they all like that minibar: Arroyo, Freese and Wright unite over…

    Yadier Molina and Buster Posey are neck-and-neck tatto. David Wright is getting help from the cougars! Did Domonoic Brown do something awful to the pets of every All-Star voter? Confused? You won’t be, after this week’s episode of … “SOAP!” Er, sorry. After this week’s NL All-Star voting update: FIRST BASE Joey Votto, Reds 2,047,945…

  24. Play of the Day: the Mets go back to Little League

    Jun 16, 2013, 11:15 PM EDT

    Chicago Cubs v. New York Mets

    Though they came back in grand fashion against Cubs reliever Carlos Marmol, the Mets had staked the Cubs to a 3-0 lead in the fifth after a litany of errors reminiscent of a Little League game. With runners on first and second and two outs in the top of the fifth against Mets starter Jeremy…

  25. David Wright: “It’s not fun to come to the park and lose”

    Jun 15, 2013, 8:25 PM EDT

    David Wright

    Though they can proudly say they aren’t as bad as the Marlins, not much has gone right in Queens for the Mets. First baseman Ike Davis has been a disaster. Shortstop Ruben Tejada hasn’t hit. They lack a real center fielder. The rotation after Matt Harvey has been a mess. After their latest loss to…
