NY Mets biggest trade deadline need could be starting pitching

For a change, the biggest need for the New York Mets at this year’s trade deadline could be starting pitching. It’s far too early to really know what we have with the New York Mets starting rotation. However, with some shakiness from Rick Porcello, summer injury to Marcus Stroman right before the regular season began, […] NY Mets biggest trade deadline need could be starting pitching - Rising Apple - Rising Apple - New York Mets News & Fan Community

Yoenis Cespedes deserves to be remembered fondly

Yoenis Cespedes deserves to be remembered fondly

La Potencia was, above all, a positive presence who brought us some amazin’ memories. Yoenis Cespedes’ career with the Mets was messy, but then again life is messy. His tenure in New York was complicated, but then again life is complicated. His time with the Mets wasn’t perfect, but then again life isn’t perfect. And just like that, La Potencia’s run with the Mets abruptly ended when the 34-year-old opted out of the 2020 season due to concerns over coronavirus on Sunday. It wasn’t the storybook ending we had dreamed about would be when we came to New York, full of power,...

Prospect Retrospective: Steve Chilcott

Prospect Retrospective: Steve Chilcott

Steve Chilcott What ever happened to Steve Chilcott? In 1965, as had been the case in the preceding few years, the New York Mets posted the worst record in baseball. Despite the fact that the team was being guided by Casey Stengel, interim-turned-permanent manager Wes Westrum, and player-coaches Warren Spahn and Yogi Berra, the talent simply wasn’t there, and the team went 50-112 for the year. The only silver lining in their dreadful record was that fact that the team would make the first selection in the 1966 Major League Baseball Draft. Player development is an inexact science....

This season is doubling as a torture chamber for pitchers.

Gimenez plays spark plug, deGrom battles in Mets rubber game victory over the Marlins

Photo by Mike Stobe/ Andres Gimenez went 3-for-4 with a stolen base and the bullpen delivered four scoreless innings to back Jacob deGrom and secure the series victory for the Mets. The Mets defeated the Marlins 4-2 to give Jacob deGrom his second win of the year and take the series from Miami. deGrom’s second win wasn’t as easily secured for the Mets’ ace as his first, however. After looking like his usual dominant self in the first inning, he uncharacteristically issued two straight four-pitch walks to lead off the second inning. While he wasn’t exactly helped by the home plate...
