Prior to Saturday’s game vs. the Dodgers, the Mets held a reunion at Citi Field for the members of the 1986 World Series championship team.
The Mets contacted Major League Baseball this weekend regarding a perceived attempt by the Dodgers to use technology to establish defensive positions.
The weekend-long celebration at Citi Field for the 30th anniversary of the Mets’ 1986 World Series championship team will come to an end under the lights Sunday, when Clayton Kershaw and Bartolo Colon square off to wrap up a three-game series between Los Angeles and New York.
The Mets believe they’ve pinpointed the root of Harvey’s issues — a mechanical flaw that flares up as he pitches deeper into games. What’s also clear is that batters are slashing .241/.292/.373 the first time they face Harvey, .301/.326/.518 the second time and .509/.563/.764 the third. So if Harvey corrects the flaw and those trends […]
Mets third baseman David Wright was held out of Saturday’s starting lineup against the Dodgers because of an unspecificed neck injury.
Seven months later, the ill will of last year’s postseason spilled back onto the field. Mets pitcher Noah Syndergaard was ejected in the third inning of Saturday’s 9-1 loss to Los Angeles for throwing behind the back of Dodgers second baseman Chase Utley, who broke Ruben Tejada’s leg with a takeout slide in National League […]
Despite facing the first of four left-handed pitchers in five games Friday, the Mets did not activate Wilmer Flores from the 15-day disabled list. It was the first day that Flores, who has been sidelined since May 12, was eligible to come off the DL.
The Dodgers rallied in the ninth to erase a four-run deficit, but Curtis Granderson saved the best of the drama for last as he launched a walk-off home run over the wall in right field to give the Mets a 6-5 victory over Los Angeles in the opening contest of a three-game series at Citi […]
While the Mets continue to celebrate the 30th anniversary of their 1986 World Series championship, a title they won thanks in large part to a dazzling young rotation, they send one of the jewels of modern-day pitching to the mound in Noah Syndergaard on Saturday night against Kenta Maeda and the Dodgers at Citi Field.
The visitor’s batting cage at Nationals Park is a spacious area, colorless walls contrasting with fake green turf, a bank of white plastic folding chairs off to one side. Throughout the Mets’ recent three-game series with the Nationals, the chairs generally sat empty, unused, save for one consistent occupant.
Given any number of tools to try to spark struggling starter Matt Harvey to success, the Mets on Wednesday again opted for the battering ram. They will not send Harvey to the Minor Leagues, place him on the disabled list or even skip his next start; instead, the Mets will continue to bull forward with […]
As was the case late last week, the Mets are extending the leash on struggling starter Matt Harvey, letting him make his next scheduled start on time, following another eye-catching, ERA-raising night against the Nationals. But given their competitive state, the Mets can’t reasonably let this situation linger much longer.
