    Bobby Parnell

    Mets closer Bobby Parnell went on the disabled list after a perfect inning of relief on July 30 and did not return, eventually undergoing surgery to repair a herniated disk in his neck. It was an unfortunate end to his first season as the team’s full-time closer, as he had a 2.16 ERA and 22…

    Scott Rice

    Mets reliever Scott Rice leads the league with 73 appearances, but the left-hander won’t be pitching again this season following hernia surgery. Rice is a good story, finally getting to the majors for the first time at age 31 after 14 seasons in the minors as a former first-round draft pick, and he’s been death…

    Max Scherzer

    It was the best pitching matchup of the season that a big chunk of the U.S. was unable to watch. Max Scherzer struck out 11 over six innings and combined with three relievers on a shutout as the Tigers beat the Mets 3-0 on Saturday. Matt Harvey took the loss after giving up two runs…

    If you have been out of the loop for the past few hours on this Fourth of July, you missed a wild one at Citi Field. Fending off a pair of dramatic comebacks, the Diamondbacks defeated the Mets 5-4 in 15 innings. It took five hours and 46 minutes to get a winner. The game…

    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…

    The struggling Mets likely would have signed up for an even split this week against the crosstown Yankees, but they ended up taking all four games. Dillon Gee struck out a career-high 12 over 7 1/3 innings of one-run ball tonight in a 3-1 victory over the Yankees. After taking both games at Citi Field…

    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…

  10. Jayson Werth: Swinging 3-0 “one of the dumber things I’ve done”

    Washington Nationals v New York Mets

    The Nationals trailed the Mets 2-0 entering the top of the eighth inning in today’s series finale in Queens. They had a rally brewing against Mets reliever Scott Rice, with runners on first and second thanks to a Steve Lombardozzi single and a Denard Span walk. Werth, 1-for-3 on the day, strode to the plate…
