The Mets may be 0-2 in the standings but they’ve had success at one thing: injuries. The Mets lead the league in putting people on the disabled list during the regular season after they put a second player there in as many days. Just one day after announcing that Bobby Parnell has an elbow injury […]
Meet the new season. Same as the old season.
Bobby Parnell had an MRI after complaining of tightness in his forearm after yesterday’s game. The MRI revealed a partially torn ulnar collateral ligament (UCL) in his right arm. This is the same type of injury that lead to Tommy John surgery for Matt Harvey. Parnell will rest for 2 weeks before being re-evaluated but it’s certainly possible he will suffer the same fate as Harvey.
Here’s the lineup for today’s opening day game against the Washington Nationals: 22 Eric Young 2B 12 Juan Lagares CF 5 David Wright 3B 3 Curtis Granderson RF 30 Andrew Brown LF 29 Ike Davis 1B 15 Travis d’Arnaud C 11 Ruben Tejada SS 35 Dillon Gee P Daniel Murphy had been scheduled […]
I root for Ike Davis. Like any other member of the Mets I want him to succeed. But then the New York Post breaks a story about how Davis hid an injury and it upsets me. The injury, to his oblique, occurred while he was struggling early last season and was on the verge of […]
There’s a lot of talk lately about Ike Davis possibly being sent to the minors due to his current slump. Honestly I would have no problem with this if not for one issue. Davis proved something to me last season when he managed to hit 32 home runs. But he struck out 141 times too. […]
The day we all feared has finally come. The Mets announced yesterday that Johan Santana has a recurrence of the same injury that kept him out for the whole 2011 season and likely has thrown his last pitch as a Met, possibly of his career. I actually did not have very high expectations for Santana […]
The Mets have added two righthanders to the bullpen in the last 24 hours when they signed Scott Atchison and LaTroy Hawkins. To say that these are not spectacular signings is an understatement but these two could be of help. The level of experience in the Mets bullpen is lacking in experience. Names like Josh […]
Reports today are that R.A. Dickey has agreed to a contract extension which would allow his trade to the Toronto Blue Jays to be completed. Josh Thole and a “non-elite minor leaguer” will join Dickey in Toronto. In exchange the Mets will get catching prospect Travis d’Arnaud, catcher John Buck, pitching prospect Noah Syndergaard and […]
Just in time for the holiday season we finally have an estimate of David Wright‘s dollar value on the market. This comes courtesy of the Tampa Bay Rays and Evan Longoria. Longoria signed an extension through the 2022 season giving him 10-years worth $136.6 million. The extension is actually worth $16.7 million a year (starting […]
Every time I start buying into the Sandy Alderson Mets being different than the Omar Minaya Mets something happens to bring things back into focus. This time it’s Andres Torres. Torres tweaked his already hurting left calf during yesterday’s opening day win over the Braves and will be placed on the disabled list. Kirk Nieuwenhuis […]
