    There’s still time to vote, but if it ended now, the NL All-Star team would look like so. Changes to possible starters: Ryan Braun pulled ahead of Melky Cabrera for the third outfield slot, reversing last week’s reversal. Otherwise, the same old same old, with the changes only affecting downballot stuff: CATCHER Buster Posey, Giants:…

  2. The Mets would like to forget the seventh inning of last night’s game

    Jun 26, 2012, 10:30 AM EDT

    David Wright

    The seventh inning of last night’s Cubs-Mets game started with the Cubs holding a 2-0 lead and Jon Rauch on the mound for the Mets. Then the defense went south. David Wright and Lucas Duda each committed three-base errors two plays apart, which led to two Cubs runs. Then, right after the Duda error, Ronny…

  3. NL All-Star balloting update: Melky in, Braun out

    Jun 19, 2012, 6:40 PM EDT

    Bochy's Angels?

    Just like in Monday’s AL balloting update, one spot in the National League projected All-Star lineup changed hands this week. Melky Cabrera moved ahead of Ryan Braun into third place in the outfield. Cabrera is deserving based on his performance this season, but one can’t help but notice that Giants fans have been awfully generous…

  4. MLB denies Mets’ appeal for R.A. Dickey no-hitter

    Jun 15, 2012, 3:45 PM EDT

    New York Mets v Washington Nationals

    As expected, MLB has denied the Mets’ appeal that R.A. Dickey‘s one-hitter Wednesday be changed to a no-hitter after the fact. They asked the league to consider changing B.J. Upton‘s first-inning infield hit, which proved to be the Rays’ only one off Dickey, into an error on third baseman David Wright. Dickey himself said the…

  5. R.A. Dickey thinks that getting a no-hitter on appeal “would be a little bit cheap”

    Jun 14, 2012, 3:00 PM EDT

    R.A. Dickey

    David Lennon of Newsday spoke with R.A. Dickey this morning and asked him how he feels about the Mets appealing the official scorers decision to call the ball hit to David Wright in last night a hit instead of an error. He was pretty candid about it: “It would be weird. I don’t know if…

    Jun 14, 2012, 6:22 AM EDT

    Matt Cain, Buster Posey

    Giants 10, Astros 0: A simply unbelievable night for Matt Cain.  As we noted last night, this was among the best games ever pitched in the history of baseball. Perfection is one thing. Doing it while striking out 14 is dominant perfection.  And don’t try to diminish it by saying “hey, it was the Astros.”…

    No, it wasn’t a dream. Johan Santana made a little history last night by tossing the first Mets’ no-hitter as part of an 8-0 win over the Cardinals. Here’s some reaction from around the baseball world: R.A. Dickey, via New York Newsday: “We’re all talking about it,” referencing Mets manager Terry Collins. “What’s he going…

    Most feel that a contract extension between the Mets and David Wright is inevitable, but those clamoring for a quick resolution will have to wait a while. According to Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com, Wright told Ed Coleman on the Mets’ pre-game show on WFAN tonight that he will not discuss a contract during the season.…

    According to Rich Coutinho of CBS New York, it’s … Chemistry in the clubhouse. It can extend winning streaks and snap losing streaks. The Mets have great chemistry, and that’s been been of the biggest reasons New York sits in second place in the competitive NL East. And here I thought it was because of…

  13. Injuries force Mets to use David Wright at shortstop

    May 28, 2012, 2:14 PM EDT

    David Wright Getty

    Ronny Cedeno is unavailable because of a strained calf, so when Justin Turner left today’s game with a serious-looking leg injury the Mets shifted David Wright from third base to shortstop. Wright has never started a game at shortstop and has just one career appearance there, which came last season and involved him playing two…

  14. Brandon Morrow dominates Mets in three-hit shutout

    The Mets were particularly vulnerable this afternoon with David Wright out of the starting lineup and Blue Jays’ right-hander Brandon Morrow took advantage, tossing a complete game three-hit shutout as part of a 2-0 victory. Morrow struck out eight and walked one while throwing 76 out of 107 pitches for strikes. The Mets nearly had…

    A.J. Ellis continues to take advantage of his first chance at regular playing time in the big leagues. Ellis went 1-for-4 with two RBI and a walk-off walk in a 6-5 win over the Cardinals last night as the Dodgers improved to a major-league best 26-13 on the year. Of course, walks are nothing new…

  17. Terry Collins makes the unwritten rules even more complicated than they already were

    May 16, 2012, 8:49 AM EDT

    Terry Collins

    Here’s an interesting philosophical question: if you get into one of those unwritten rules, Old School situations in which the other guy’s big star gets drilled and, you can expect, your big guy is going to get hit in retaliation, are you obligated to make your big guy bat and take that lump? Terry Collins…

  21. Brad Mills went a bit nutso with his pen last night

    May 1, 2012, 10:35 AM EDT

    Brad Mills

    Look, the Astros won the game so it’s all good, but this was a little nuts:  Brad Mills used six pitchers against six consecutive batters across an inning and a third. Bud Norris started the game and went six and two-thirds innings.  In the seventh, the last batter he faced was Kirk Nieuwenhuis, who singled in…

    Mets Wright watches his solo home run against the  Phillies during the first inning of their National League MLB baseball game in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

    So, uh, David Wright is going to be just fine. The 29-year-old third baseman returned to the Mets’ starting lineup on Saturday afternoon for the first time since fracturing his right pinkie finger and broke out for three hits (including a first at-bat homer) in a 5-0 New York victory over the Phillies.
