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…
Bartolo Colon, who turns 43 years old today, threw an excellent outing last night, going seven innings and allowing one run on five hits in the Mets’ 7-1 win over Washington. But that is not why we are here. We are here for the comedy.
The last time Matt Harvey and Stephen Strasburg faced off in Queens, fans spent much of the night chanting “Harvey’s better!” Last night, a rain of boos.
NL hitting leader Daniel Murphy and his new buddies on the Washington Nationals are in New York to take on the Mets, for whom Murphy jerked some postseason dongs last year. Washington put a whooping on New York last night, and they’re up big tonight thanks to Matt Harvey’s bad start.
The Binghamton Mets, the AA affiliate of the New York Mets, have decided, as we briefly noted earlier today, that it’s time for the ballclub to forge boldly onward into the future and delineate their own identity outside of the influence of the mothership. This is noble and good, because minor league baseball is at…
The New York Post reported today that married Mets pitcher Bartolo Colon is being sued by a Washington Heights woman who says she had two children with him and wants him to pay child support.
Bartolo Colon is now a power hitter, but he’s always been a source of wisdom and knowledge. As the wizened sage of the Mets’ pitching staff, his job is to lead by example. Apparently content with his teachings on how to dominate from the mound, it appears Bartolo has moved on to teaching his flock how to mash dingers.…
This is just a fantastic mash-up of Bartolo Colon’s delightful home run and the climactic scene from The Natural.
Over the years, we have been consistently impressed with Mets pitcher Bartolo Colón’s athletic feats. But nothing he has achieved meets tonight’s highlight, in which the Dominican hurler hits his first career home run after twenty seasons in the majors:
What’s the hottest look at tonight’s Met’s game, which you could call a gala if you were so inclined?
Big-ass Mets pitcher Noah Syndergaard had a good game against the Phillies last night, striking out eight and allowing just one run in seven innings. He’s struck out 29 jamokes in his first 20 innings of the season, and he’s done it by throwing the ball really, really hard.
The fail whale turned up on tonight’s SNY broadcast of the Mets-Phillies game. It’s... something.
The Mets expect Jacob deGrom to return from the family emergency list in time for his next turn in the rotation. The hurler is on the temporary leave list due to complications with the birth of his newborn baby Jaxon, born Monday.
The Mets lost tonight despite a historically good start from Noah Syndergaard because they’re the Mets and ambitious losses are part of their DNA. They knocked around Jose Fernandez in the first inning, then loaded up the bases in the second only to leave empty-handed. After that, Fernandez straightened out and he and…
The New York Times tracked down some of the Mets fans whose agony was captured in the moment Eric Hosmer tied last year’s World Series Game 5, and it’s terrific.
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.
The thing to remember is that all baseball players are large babies.
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…
