Mets broadcaster Keith Hernandez took it upon himself tonight to horrify a poor girl with the story of the time his braces were smashed into his lips during a game of pick-up basketball, which required several painful hours of recovery work by the school nurse:
Brawny baseball monk Tim Tebow will reportedly not join the Mets in 2017, according to general manager Sandy Alderson, howling skyward with raised, clenched fists:
The Mets have been the unluckiest team in baseball, suffering a seemingly endless parade of injuries in the first few months of the season. This week, their list of problems has continued to grow, and it’s crossed the line into legitimately strange.
Here is Jay Bruce of the Mets getting doubled up at first after Phillies outfielder Aaron Altherr bobbles a shallow pop in center field:
Of the seven starting pitchers that the New York Mets carried in spring training, five have been on the disabled list this season. Now, it looks like you can make it six.
Anthony DiComo of MLB.com is reporting the New York Mets are promoting Tim Tebow from Columbia to Class A St. Lucie, because he is a very good baseball man.
After Zack Wheeler got his tits lit on Monday night, giving up seven runs in two innings, he promised that he felt fine—it was just an issue with poor command, he said. New York Mets officials backed him up, with manager Terry Collins saying that there wasn’t any reason to think it was a sign of injury. From the New…
Let’s check in with the New York Mets, who are supposedly a Major League Baseball team playing in the NL East.
The New York Post has shed some more light on the Mr. Met bird-flipping controversy, quoting a fan who says Mr. Met’s rude finger was flipped in response to persistent heckling.
Today, the Mets found themselves in minor drama that had nothing to do with a rebellious mascot. The umpiring crew initially ruled that the Milwaukee Brewers’ ball boy had interfered with Wilmer Flores’s attempt to catch a fly ball, but after the officials convened to discuss, they reversed the call. This made Terry…
Last night, Mr. Met gave us the highlight of the New York Mets’ season when he gave the finger to a fan. It was fun and good, mostly because the visual of a grinning Mr. Met giving some jamoke the finger is a pleasing visual, and also because it was no doubt deserved. Unfortunately, the Mets were not so tickled, and…
The Mets lost to the Brewers tonight by six runs. Aside from Eric Thames’s big dinger, what happened on the field was not particularly notable (the Mets lose all the time). However, right next to the field, Mr. Met provided the highlight of the night when he flipped off a fan who was videotaping the interaction.
As the Mets rotation has increasingly become a desperate bunch of relatively interchangeable substitute scraps, their bullpen hasn’t fared any better. Over the past month, the team’s relief corps has been the worst in baseball—below replacement level as a unit, actively costing wins rather than doing anything to help…
On his 15th pitch in Monday’s game, Mets reliever Hansel Robles delivered a high fastball to Diamondbacks outfielder Yasmany Tomás. The result of the play will be addressed in a moment, but please note this:
It’s been a week since Matt Harvey failed to show up for a game, triggering a three-day suspension and a whirlwind of rumors. There’s been plenty of talk in that time on what Harvey was really doing the night before his no-show, whether it’s a sign of a more serious problem, and how competently the Mets have handled…
Here’s a dumb, fun rumor from the New York Post’s Page Six: Moping Mets star pitcher Matt Harvey was out partying until 4 a.m. last Friday before he failed to show up for Saturday’s game because he was distraught after seeing photos of Adriana Lima out on the town with Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman.
The Mets held a press conference for Matt Harvey this afternoon, during which Harvey looked humiliated while apologizing to the organization and the fans he let down by not showing up to Citi Field on Saturday night.
The best story in baseball keeps getting better. After a busy couple days in this very public spat between the Mets and Matt Harvey over the game Harvey failed to show up for on Saturday, Page Six now has a report that gets at what this kerfuffle actually seems to be about: Harvey’s partying, specifically last Friday.
Matt Harvey’s non-dildo-related suspension is just the latest beef that the Mets have tried and failed to keep inside the clubhouse, instead looking on in horror as the beef spills over into the stadium corridors and onto the field and everywhere, just nothing but beef, rancid, scabrous beef smeared across the…
