  1. And That Happened: Tuesday’s scores and highlights

    Jun 19, 2013, 6:47 AM EDT

    New York Mets v Atlanta Braves - Game Two

    Mets 4, Braves 3; Mets 6, Braves 1: New York Mets fans are hoping this is a glimpse of the future. Matt Harvey dominating in one game, Zack Wheeler dominating in the next. And, worth noting, Dillion Gee dominating in the game before those even if they did lose in the end. There’s so much…

  2. Zack Wheeler goes six scoreless innings in MLB debut

    Jun 18, 2013, 10:37 PM EDT

    The Zack Wheeler era began on a promising note. Making his major league debut on Tuesday evening as part of a doubleheader at Atlanta’s Turner Field, the 23-year-old right-hander tossed six scoreless innings, fanning seven Braves batters and allowing just four hits. Wheeler issued a total of five walks and looked a little bit shaky…

  3. Cancel the no-hitter alert: Matt Harvey gives up an infield single to Jason Heyward

    Jun 18, 2013, 3:10 PM EDT

    New York Mets v Washington Nationals

    UPDATE: Forget it. Jason Heyward just reached on an infield single. A weird looking one as Harvey fielded the ball between the mound and first and then flipped it to … no one. Scored an infield hit, which makes sense considering that errors are rarely called on bad decisions by fielders — in this case…

  4. Quote of the Day: Matt Harvey’s footsteps and Zack Wheeler

    Jun 17, 2013, 4:46 PM EDT

    zack wheeler getty

    Mets prospect Zack Wheeler is set to make his MLB debut Tuesday against the Braves and when asked if Wheeler should follow in the footsteps of last year’s stud Mets pitching prospect, Matt Harvey, manager Terry Collins gave a pretty great response: Terry Collins on whether Zack Wheeler should follow Matt Harvey’s lead: “You mean…

  5. 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…

  6. It’s official: Zack Wheeler to make MLB debut on Tuesday

    Jun 14, 2013, 7:05 PM EDT

    Zack Wheeler

    After weeks of speculation, the Mets made it official: they are calling up top prospect Zack Wheeler on Tuesday. The Mets play a day/night double-header against the Braves and will fire a double-barreled shot of young arms, going with Matt Harvey in the afternoon and Wheeler in the evening most likely. The Mets acquired Wheeler…

  7. Orioles send Kevin Gausman back to the minors

    Jun 14, 2013, 10:15 AM EDT

    Boston Red Sox v Baltimore Orioles

    Kevin Gausman’s first taste of the majors didn’t go quite as planned and after posting a 7.66 ERA in five starts last year’s No. 4 overall pick is headed back to Triple-A. Gausman actually turned in a pretty decent outing last night, tossing 5.1 innings of two-run ball against the Red Sox, but the Orioles…

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

    Jun 14, 2013, 6:45 AM EDT

    New York Yankees v Oakland Athletics

    Athletics 3, Yankees 2: Looking at the Yankees side of the box score and noting Robinson Cano‘s contributions compared to everyone else’s and this comes to mind. Mark Teixeira, Travis Hafner, Kevin Youkilis and Vernon Wells combined to go 0 for 28 with 12 strikeouts in this marathon game. And while, yes, hats off to…

  9. Matt Harvey expects to take his next scheduled start

    Jun 8, 2013, 10:25 PM EDT

    New York Mets starting pitcher Matt Harvey pitches against the Chicago White Sox during the fourth inning of their MLB Inter League baseball game at CitiField in New York

    Matt Harvey left after the seventh inning of this afternoon’s game against the Marlins with a back injury. He had held the Marlins to one run over seven innings. In the dugout after his final inning, he spoke to pitching coach Dan Warthen about the injury, prompting manager Terry Collins to relieve him with Brandon…

  10. Blue Jays, Marlins emerge victorious in pair of marathon games

    Jun 8, 2013, 7:40 PM EDT

    Texas Rangers v Toronto Blue Jays

    The Rangers, Blue Jays, Marlins, and Mets combined for 38 innings of baseball as the four teams engaged in two marathon games this afternoon. The Jays defeated the Rangers 4-3 in 18 innings while the Marlins emerged victorious over the Mets 2-1 in 20 innings. It is the Jays’ second game lasting at least 17…

  11. Matt Harvey exits start with lower back tightness

    Jun 8, 2013, 4:01 PM EDT

    Matt Harvey Getty

    Minor scare for the Mets this afternoon. As noted by Adam Rubin of ESPN New York, Matt Harvey was forced to leave his start against the Marlins today after seven innings due to lower back tightness. Harvey allowed one run on six hits and no walks before exiting. The young right-hander may have tweaked his…

  12. Hapless Marlins sweep Haplesser Mets

    Jun 2, 2013, 4:51 PM EDT

    David Wright

    The Mets had Matt Harvey on the mound today and they got three homers for the offense. That should be a sure recipe to snap a little two-game losing streak, right? No, not even close. The Mets blew a 6-4 lead as the bullpen gave up seven runs in three innings Sunday in an 11-6…

  13. Shelby Miller continues reign of terror on National League hitters

    Jun 1, 2013, 6:15 PM EDT

    As we enter the third month of the season, the herd has been thinned and we have a good idea which pitchers are for real and which were pretenders. With seven innings of shutout ball against the Giants this afternoon, Cardinals starter Shelby Miller continues to establish himself as one of baseball’s premier arms. The…

    New York Mets Lucas Duda reacts after he hit to get winning run against New York Yankees in New York

    Mets 2, Yankees 1: Yesterday I cracked that Mariano Rivera, who was asked to throw out the first pitch by the Mets, would likely throw the last pitch in the “Yankees likely victory over the Mets.” Shows ya what I know. The greatest closer in the history of baseball came into the ninth with a…

  15. The Royals broadcast had a pretty big graphics fail tonight

    May 23, 2013, 11:32 PM EDT

    Royals graphic

    If you watch enough baseball games, you’ll see the occasional error with an in-game graphic. You know how it goes, perhaps a player’s name is misspelled or the wrong name is shown with a particular player. However, we hit the jackpot tonight. In the FOX Sports Kansas City broadcast of the Angels-Royals game, there was…

  16. Report: Zack Wheeler expected to make 2-3 starts in minors before joining Mets

    May 23, 2013, 6:25 PM EDT

    Zack Wheeler

    It’s been expected all along that the Mets would keep prospect right-hander Zack Wheeler in the minors until June, in part to delay his service time, but here we are. Mike Puma of the New York Post was told by a “high-ranking team official” that Wheeler is expected to make 2-3 starts with Triple-A Las…

  17. And That Happened: Wednesday’s scores and highlights

    Star Trek into Darkness

    Phillies 3, Marlins 0: Cliff Lee shuts out the Marlins on three hits. Granted, it doesn’t take anyone as good as Lee to shut out the Marlins, but that’s nothing that Lee could help. He was dominant. Just like Benedict Cumberbatch in that scene when he killed all those [alien race redacted to avoid spoilers]…

  18. Zack Cozart: the Matt Harvey tamer

    May 22, 2013, 5:02 PM EDT

    Joey Votto, Zack Cozart

    Superman has kryptonite. Matt Harvey has Zack Cozart. Despite being a nearly unhittable pitcher this year, the Reds’ Cozart got four hits off Harvey today en route to a 4 for 5, two-double performance. Overall Harvey had his worst outing of the season, allowing four runs on nine hits in six and a third. One…

  19. Matt Moore matches Babe Ruth with 8-0 start

    May 19, 2013, 8:25 PM EDT

    Matt Moore

    It’s not every day a player can say he accomplished a Ruthian feat, but Matt Moore has earned that very prestigious honor today. As the pitcher of record behind the Rays’ 3-1 win over the Orioles this afternoon, Moore improved to 8-0 in nine starts this season, becoming the first lefty age 23 or younger…

  20. Matt Harvey beats the Cubs with his arm and his bat

    May 17, 2013, 5:32 PM EDT

    New York Mets starting pitcher Matt Harvey pitches against the Chicago White Sox with a bloody nose during the first inning of their MLB Inter League baseball game at CitiField in New York

    Matt Harvey held the Cubs to two runs in 7.1 innings this afternoon and delivered the game-winning RBI single in a 3-2 Mets victory.

Q: Went to watch the M’s at Yankees stadium last night and tonight. National Anthem pre-recorded both nights, is this a thing? I wish it were more of one. How…

  22. Zack Wheeler checks out OK

    May 15, 2013, 5:02 PM EDT

    zack wheeler getty

    Mets prospect Zack Wheeler who, along with Matt Harvey may be the only reasons to watch the Mets as the year goes on, was in New York to be checked out for some shoulder soreness today. Good news: “All good,” Wheeler’s agent Al Goetz said via text message. “No structural damage.” He’ll miss a start,…

  23. How long will players be under suspicion for PED use because they fought testing in the 90s?

    May 13, 2013, 4:30 PM EDT

    David Ortiz Reuters

    Gregg Doyel has a column up at CBS Sports.com talking about that whole David Ortiz-Dan Shaughnessy flap from last week in which Shaughnessy basically said it was cool to assume Ortiz was on PEDs because he was hitting well at the time. Doyel’s not a big fan of how Shaughnessy raised the issue — he said…

    Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim v Chicago White Sox

    White Sox 3, Angels 0: Chris Sale was fantastic. And not just because of that suh-weet 1983 throwback jersey. A perfect game into the seventh and then the hit that inning to Mike Trout was all the Angels could muster. Indians 4, Tigers 3: Watched this one with the girlfriend’s parents. Tigers fans. Let’s just…
