    Jenrry Mejia has a hernia, but feels very strongly about finishing out the rest of the season before considering surgery.

  2. Tim Byrdak has a novel way of trying to get a deal

    Tim Byrdak only pitched eight games last year as he recovered from major shoulder surgery. And he wasn’t all that effective in doing so. So it’s not surprising that he hasn’t gotten a job for 2014. Still, he’s not discouraged. He’s out there hustling for work. And by “out there” I mean posting handbills: pic.twitter.com/TkLV1nIvRw…

    As expected Mets reliever Tim Byrdak has decided to undergo shoulder surgery to repair a torn anterior capsule, which potentially could end the 39-year-old’s career. Byrdak told Adam Rubin of ESPN New York that his goal is to return late next season, but he understands how difficult that may be: It’s been a very emotional…

    Tim Byrdak leads the majors with 56 appearances this season and is second only to Jonny Venters with 128 appearances dating back to the start of last season. Unfortunately he has paid the price for his heavy workload. According to David Lennon of New York Newsday, the Mets announced this evening that Byrdak was diagnosed…

  6. The Mets are back to normal

    New York Mets players surround manager Collins after Washington Nationals LaRoche two run home run in MLB game in New York

    For much of the season the Mets played decent baseball. More significantly, though, they played fundamentally sound, team-oriented baseball and there weren’t any typical-for-the-Mets stories of discord and strife. In a decade or so when Mets fans routinely found their palm to their face for some damn reason or another, it has been a remarkably…

  7. Slumping Mets have little to sell

    Scott Hairston

    Stephen Strasburg made easy work of the Mets lineup on Wednesday, racking up 11 strikeouts while throwing just 94 pitches in seven innings, and the Nationals won 5-2 to complete a three-game sweep in New York. It was the second straight series in which the Mets have been swept. They’re 1-11 since the All-Star break…

  8. Bobby Parnell blows save, Mets lose on wild pitch

    Bobby Parnell

    Those who believe Bobby Parnell just doesn’t have the mentality to close have gained a little more ammunition over the last week. Parnell blew his second save in four days, and Pedro Beato threw a wild pitch to score the winning run in the 10th as the Mets lost to the Nationals 5-4 on Tuesday.…

  9. The Frank Francisco chicken saga comes to a happy ending

    Jun 25, 2012, 10:00 AM EDT

    New York Yankees v New York Mets

    On Friday Mets reliever Frank Francisco called the Yankees “chickens” for some reason. Then, as a joke, reliever Tim Byrdak sent a clubhouse attendant to Chinatown to buy a live chicken and gave it to Francisco. It ran around the Mets clubhouse over the weekend, but now it is going to a better place. No,…

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

    Apr 30, 2012, 5:45 AM EDT

    San Diego Padres v San Francisco Giants

    Giants 4, Padres 1: Madison Bumgarner keeps rolling (7.2 IP, 6 H, 1 ER, 6K). After the game he explained his recent success by saying “I’m just trying to make pitches.”  I’ve heard that for 30 years and I’m still not quite sure what it means but I always like hearing it for some reason.…

  11. Mets lose lefty reliever Tim Byrdak to knee surgery

    Mar 12, 2012, 4:22 PM EDT

    Tim Byrdak

    UPDATE: General manager Sandy Alderson expects Byrdak to be ready for game action in about six weeks, which could mean a late-April debut. ========== Scott Hairston‘s oblique injury means the Mets may look to a converted left-handed pitcher to serve as their backup center fielder and now Tim Byrdak‘s knee injury means they’re in need…

    Mets third baseman David Wright hasn’t appeared in a Grapefruit League game this spring due to discomfort on the left side of his rib cage. Wanting to rule out anything serious, team doctors have summoned him to New York to have his midsection examined and to get a cortisone shot. This according to ESPN New…

  13. Running down the rosters: New York Mets

    Feb 22, 2012, 11:00 PM EDT

    Jason Bay, David Wright

    As depressing as all things Mets have been lately, the team on the field still finished a respectable 77-85 last season. Unfortunately, it seems likely that things will get worse before they get better. Rotation Johan Santana – L R.A. Dickey – R Mike Pelfrey – R Jon Niese – L Dillon Gee – R…
