Mets will watch Niese closely

Jonathon Niese #49 SPNew York Mets 2014 STATS GM17 W5 L4 BB28 K74 ERA2.96 SEATTLE -- While Jonathon Niese does not have a strict pitch count on Monday night, Terry Collins said the staff will watch him closely. Niese's velocity has been down this season, which partially prompted the Mets to skip his final first-half start and place the southpaw on the disabled list. As a result, Niese takes the mound against the Mariners having not pitched since July 4.

Mariners take vacation from stressful baseball, comfortably beat Mets

Roenis Elias and the Seattle Mariners defeat the Mets 5-2 Man. That was a fun, stress-free baseball game. After the high levels of gut-wrenching meted out by that last series against the Angels, I could really use a few games like this one. Seattle took the lead early, and although the Mets came back and tied it in the third, the Mariners bats responded quickly and decisively. There were quite a few flashy plays in today's game, but this victory was mostly due to the pitching. First and foremost, I sincerely hope that Roenis Elias is okay. So far, I've seen his injury described as either...
