New York Mets

  1. If the Mets don’t extend David Wright, R.A. Dickey is likely gone

    When it comes to what R.A. Dickey is going to do once his contract is up with the Mets, he says he views he and David Wright as something of a package deal for the Mets: “If I don’t see them pursuing David hard,” Dickey said, “I think it would be a message to everybody…

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

    Baltimore Orioles Machado rounds the bases after hitting a home run against the Toronto Blue Jays during an MLB game in Baltimore

    Orioles 12, Blue Jays 2: Bombs away. Chris Davis and Manny Machado each had two homers and the O’s hit seven in all, keeping pace with the Yankees, who maintain their one and a half game lead. Yankees 8, Twins 2: CC Sabathia looks to be back on his game, and that will be huge for the Yankees in…

  3. David Wright becomes the Mets’ all-time hits leader

    David Wright smacked an RBI single in the bottom of the third inning of Wednesday’s game against the Pirates, pushing the Mets to an early 2-0 lead and becoming the franchise’s all-time leader in hits. Ed Kranepool held the high-mark previously, having netted 1,418 total hits between the 1962 and 1979 seasons. He was a…

  4. The Mets are not going to pursue any big name outfielders

    The Mets outfield is a pretty ugly mess, but don’t think the free agent market is gonna fix it. Andy Martino reports: Let’s do this once, to save us a winter of speculation: B.J. Upton? No. Michael Bourn? No. Shane Victorino? No. None of these players will be a Met in 2013, according to two…

  5. How loud is Citi Field?

    Sep 26, 2012, 11:33 AM EST

    Spinal Tap

    I imagine you could do this at any park of an also-ran, but people tend to relish this sort of thing much more when the Mets are involved. The Wall Street Journal purchased a decibel meter and went to Monday’s Mets game: As the Mets took the field to the sound of “Meet the Mets,”…

  6. David Wright ties the all-time Mets hit record

    Sep 26, 2012, 10:00 AM EST

    New York Mets Wright runs up the first baseline after hitting a solo home run against the Pittsburgh Pirates during the first inning of their MLB National League baseball game in New York

    Everyone on the planet noted it when Derek Jeter tied and then broke the Yankees all-time hit record, so we may as well note it for David Wright: last night he tied Ed Kranepool for the most hits in franchise history, with 1,418. Kranepool was more of a story of perseverance, of course, as he took nine…

  7. Jason Bay is going to be a Met in 2013

    Sep 25, 2012, 9:41 AM EST

    Jason Bay

    Jason Bay has either been hurt, has stunk on ice or both since signing his $66 million deal before the 2010 season. And there is little if any chance, it seems, that he’s going to miraculously be a good player in its final year in 2013. But the Mets have decided that the roster spot…

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

    Sep 25, 2012, 5:30 AM EST

    New York Yankees v Minnesota Twins

    Yankees 6, Twins 3: Six shutout innings for Andy Pettitte. After all these years. After a retirement. After an injury that cost him the bulk of the season. Andy Pettitte is still critical to the Yankees after all of these years. Orioles 4, Blue Jays 1; Blue Jays 9, Orioles 5: The split costs Baltimore…

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

    Sep 24, 2012, 5:30 AM EST

    Chicago White Sox v Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim

    Angels 4, White Sox 1: Did you know that if you win the AL Central that you contract a horrible disease? If you answered yes, you must be either the Tigers or the White Sox. That’s five straight losses for Chicago. Jered Weaver wins his 19th, allowing one run over six and a third. Kendrys…

  10. Frank Francisco still out with right elbow injury, could be shut down for rest of season

    Sep 23, 2012, 2:39 PM EST

    frank francisco getty

    From Andy Martino of the New York Daily News comes word that Mets closer Frank Francisco will be “unavailable for at least several more days” and could be shut down for the remainder of the year due to ongoing concerns about his throwing elbow. Francisco hasn’t made an appearance since last Sunday and hasn’t converted a…

  11. No, Jayson Stark, Craig Kimbrel is not the NL Cy Young

    Sep 22, 2012, 5:16 PM EST

    Craig Kimbrel

    ESPN’s Jayson Stark built his Cy Young case for Craig Kimbrel in Friday’s column. It’s chock full of some delicious statistics that demonstrate Kimbrel’s unprecedented accomplishments, and it’s well worth reading. It’s actually a really good column. I just totally disagree with the premise. Now, I’m not one to say relievers don’t deserve consideration for…

  12. Gio Gonzalez is game’s first to 20 wins this season

    Sep 22, 2012, 4:15 PM EST

    Gio Gonzalez

    The National League’s Cy Young favorites both added to their cases Saturday, with the Nationals’ Gio Gonzalez beating the Brewers for win No. 20 of the season and the Mets’ R.A. Dickey going eight strong to defeat Miami for his 19th victory. Gonzalez held the Brewers to two runs — both unearned — over seven…

  13. Jeremy Hefner can’t get an out against the Phillies

    Sep 20, 2012, 7:44 PM EST

    Jeremy Hefner, Terry Collins

    The Mets’ Jeremy Hefner was pulled from his start Thursday against the Phillies after failing to retire any of the seven batters he faced. Hefner gave up six singles in a row, including a bunt single to Juan Pierre, and then walked Kevin Frandsen with the bases loaded before being replaced by Collin McHugh. Since…

  14. Matt Harvey finishes strong, joins elite company before being shut down by Mets

    Sep 20, 2012, 11:51 AM EST

    Matt Harvey

    Matt Harvey‘s final start of the season was delayed one day by a rain and the Mets rookie tossed seven innings of one-run, one-hit ball against the Phillies last night before being shut down to limit his workload. Harvey finishes with a 2.73 ERA, .200 opponents’ batting average, and 70/26 K/BB ratio in 59 innings,…

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

    Sep 20, 2012, 5:40 AM EST

    Atlanta Braves v Miami Marlins

    Braves 3, Marlins 0:  Kris Medlen continues his astounding second half, shutting out the Marlins for eight innings. The Braves have won his last 21 starts, which is the most any team has won any one pitcher’s starts since the Yankees and Whitey Ford from 1950-53. Is there any doubt who will be starting the…

  16. Matt Harvey will make final start Wednesday after rainout

    Sep 18, 2012, 3:19 PM EST

    Matt Harvey

    UPDATE: And now it doesn’t matter anyway, as the game has been postponed to tomorrow and Harvey will start. ========== There’s bad weather in the forecast for tonight’s Mets-Phillies game in New York, so if they actually play Mets rookie Matt Harvey has been scratched from his scheduled start and replaced by Jeremy Hefner. This…

  17. Ike Davis is NOT happy with whoever on the Mets accused him of being out late

    Sep 18, 2012, 1:00 PM EST

    Ike Davis

    In the earlier Ike Davis story, Adam Rubin cited Mets team officials who said they were concerned with Davis being out too late after games and not taking instruction.  All of this is news to Ike Davis, who does not sound at all happy about what he read this morning: “I have never missed games…

  18. Baseball announces the Roberto Clemente Award nominees

    Sep 18, 2012, 12:30 PM EST

    Clemente

    The Roberto Clemente Award goes to the Major Leaguer who “best exemplifies the game of baseball, sportsmanship, community involvement and the individual’s contribution to his team.” David Ortiz won it last year.  The 2012 nominees — one per team — were just announced and are listed below. One complaint first. It’s the same complaint I lodge every…

  19. The Mets may trade Ike Davis, will criticize him to the media first

    Sep 18, 2012, 9:13 AM EST

    ike davis getty

    Last night Matthew talked about how it appears that the Mets are making Ike Davis into a platoon player late in the season and how, by doing so, they’re letting Lucas Duda play games at first base, which is where he really belongs. Today Adam Rubin reports that the Mets are thinking about going one…

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

    Sep 18, 2012, 6:07 AM EST

    Detroit Tigers v Chicago White Sox

    White Sox 5, Tigers 4: For want of some leather, the empire was lost. Or something like that.  The Tigers now find themselves three back of the White Sox with no more head-to-head games. This is pretty dire for the Tigers. Braves 7, Marlins 5: Dan Uggla continues to kill his old team. He hit…

  21. The Mets are making Ike Davis a platoon player

    Sep 17, 2012, 6:34 PM EST

    Ike Davis

    Ike Davis turned his season around in a big way after a horrible first two months — he’s hitting .261/.339/.549 with 22 homers and 59 RBI in 284 at-bats since June 12 — but the Mets have decided to close out the season with him on the bench and Lucas Duda at first base against…

  22. Fan who ran onto Citi Field after Johan Santana’s no-hitter fined $5,000

    Sep 14, 2012, 9:40 AM EST

    jeanshortguy

    How much does a moment’s stupid impulse cost you in New York?  How about $5,000 and 100 hours of community service: A New York Mets fan who ran onto Citi Field following Johan Santana‘s no-hitter has pleaded guilty to interfering with a professional sporting event. Prosecutors said Thursday a judge ordered 32-year-old Rafael Diaz of…

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

    Sep 14, 2012, 3:46 AM EST

    St Louis Cardinals v Los Angeles Dodgers

    Cardinals 2, Dodgers 1: A must-win for both teams if they wanted to stop the bleeding, but a muster-win for L.A. since they’re behind in the standings. Just didn’t happen, though. Lance Lynn, back in the rotation in a spot start, allowed one run in six innings and struck out seven to give the Cardinals a…

  24. John Lannan replaces Strasburg, combines on shutout

    Sep 12, 2012, 10:49 PM EST

    Washington Nationals' Lannan pitches to New York Mets in MLB game in New York

    John Lannan’s return to Washington’s rotation was a very good one, as he pitched 5 2/3 scoreless innings Wednesday and combined with five relievers on a 2-0 shutout of the Mets. Tonight was supposed to be Stephen Strasburg‘s final start of the season, but he was shut down five days early after struggling against the…

  25. Bryce’s boffo belt-busting bellyflop

    Sep 11, 2012, 8:52 AM EST

    Bryce Harper Belt

    Sorry. Was just practicing in case I ever get a job writing for a gossip site. I mean a gossip site that isn’t specifically about baseball like HBT. Anyway: Harper made a diving attempt at an Andres Torres liner and tore his belt in two. The rookie casually walked over to the Washington bullpen and…
