Matt Harvey, nominal ace of the New York Mets, didn’t stick around to talk to reporters after his most recent disaster of a start, and the local press reacted to the snub in predictable fashion. Now they have moved into Phase 2 of their war with Harvey by trolling the locker room for teammates willing to talk shit…
Last night was bad for Matt Harvey. Not only did he continue his struggle-season by giving up five runs and three homers in five innings to the Washington Nationals, bringing his ERA up over 6.00, but he ducked out of the stadium without talking to reporters after the game. That second part may not have been a big…
This is just a fantastic mash-up of Bartolo Colon’s delightful home run and the climactic scene from The Natural.
Publications across America, this one included, had a grand old time coming up with silly headlines to put above stories about Mets ace Matt Harvey’s bladder infection and blood clots, which briefly threatened to cost Harvey his Opening Day start. Harvey saw all of our jokes, and he’s not too happy about them.
Yesterday afternoon brought down a Category 4 Mets Panic when word got out that Matt Harvey was in danger of missing his Opening Day start due to some mystery ailment. The panic got even worse when manager Terry Collins and GM Sandy Alderson steadfastly refused to say just what the hell was wrong with their ace. This…
A truly amazing spring training lowlight from Mets-Astros this afternoon, as an A.J. Reed ball hit past Yoenis Cespedes stuck at the base of the wall. It didn’t wedge under anything; it wasn’t trapped, or unreachable; it wasn’t obstructed in any way that would have warranted the umpire calling dead ball and awarding a…
So this is pretty weird. Mets pitcher Jenrry Mejia, who recently became the first player in MLB history to receive a lifetime ban for failing three PED tests, has told The New York Times that his third positive test was the result of a conspiracy carried out against him by MLB.
Mets outfielder Yoenis Cespedes has apparently run out of fancy motorized vehicles to drive to spring training, because this morning he rolled up to the Mets’ facility on a horse.
Yoenis Cespedes got paid this offseason, and he arrived at the Mets’ spring training facility riding a tricked-out, three-wheeled motorcycle thingy, as any rich person should.
Jenrry Mejia really likes taking steroids. He was suspended by MLB for 80 games when he tested positive for stanozolol last April, and was hit with a 162-game suspension three months later when he tested positive for stanozolol and boldenone. Today brings news that Mejia failed a third test, this time for boldenone.
The owners of the New York Mets are no strangers to financial calamity. After losing $550 million in Bernie Madoff’s Ponzi scheme and paying out $80 million to settle a lawsuit claiming they were in on the scheme, Fred and Jeff Wilpon managed to keep their team by taking out loans and slashing payroll.
Mets pitcher Matt Harvey was a recent guest on Watch What Happens, and he managed to stop thinking about Qualcomm long enough to play a game of Never Have I Ever with Connie Chung and host Andy Cohen.
The New York Mets went to the World Series last season and currently boast a young pitching staff that is not only one of the most talented in the game, but also one of the cheapest. And yet for the Mets, perhaps the game’s preeminent struggle-franchise, this is a big problem.
Here’s Fox analyst Frank Thomas, summing up the Mets’ World Series and also your recent job performance:
The Mets lost the World Series in the most on-brand, Mets-y way possible. That’s very bad news for Mets fans, but it’s good news for those of us who have grown to appreciate the great photographic genre that is Sad Mets Fans.
Shortly after Game 2 of the NLCS, Bartolo Colon attempted to return to the clubhouse. It didn’t go so well.
You’re a middle-aged Mets fan who just watched his team advance to the NLCS, and Mets manager Terry Collins is coming your way. You’re probably pretty drunk. Do you play it cool? Of course not.
We like to bust on the Mets and their fans quite a bit around here, but even we can’t deny the brilliance of this small Mets fan:
Sunday morning, a Mets fan known as Will from Queens called into the show, and got himself so worked up about the Mets’ postseason chances that he cried. Mike Francesa brought him back on the show today and surprised him with a ticket to tonight’s game. Will sounded like he was going to cry, again.
Will from Queens was feeling a little emotional yesterday morning, and who can blame him? His Mets are in the playoffs for the first time since 2006, he just watched Ruben Tejada get his leg broken on a dirty play, and Matt Harvey? Don’t even get Will started on Matt Harv—[stifles oncoming sobs]—Matt Harvey, man!
