Mo sat in front of a sculpture of Jackie Robinson’s No. 42, and chatted about everything from his cut fastball to the 2000 World Series that pitted New York’s teams against one another in a true Subway Series.
With the Yankees visiting Citi Field, Mets’ first baseman Ike Davis is looking to keep the momentum going.
Rivera says the Subway Series has become more like a divisional game in recent years.
Though the Yankees have all but lost their division lead during an inconsistent road trip, a date with the crosstown rival Mets may be what they need to get it back.
Sending Ike Davis down to Triple-A potentially could harm his already damaged psyche. Either way, Sandy Alderson must make a decision now.
“If not for the minor setback with the shoulder, he might already be here,” a team official told the New York Post. “We are at the point where you can say it’s probably two or three more starts (for Las Vegas).”
Another day, another loss for the Mets — and another brutal game for their struggling first baseman.
Reds outfielder Shin-Soo Choo will be a free agent after the season, and he will be a very attractive option for Alderson. The 30-year-old plays all three outfield positions. He has speed and power and is a premier top-of-the-order catalyst.
It turns out that the esteemed play-by-play man is an accomplished musician. Not only does he know his Mets, but he can play the piano and hold a tune.
Ike Davis might not be the only Met in danger of being demoted. According to a report, shortstop Ruben Tejada and outfielder Jordany Valdespin aren’t exactly on safe ground.
The Mets rebounded from an 0-3 start to their road trip by taking three of their last four, including a series win in Chicago, their first series victory since taking two of three from Washington at Citi Field a month ago.
This July, Major League Baseball’s best players will hop on the 7 train and head to Queens for the All-Star game — it’s the first time Citi Field is hosting the mid-summer classic.
Word of baseball writer Bill Chuck’s campaign to start Mariano Rivera in this year’s All-Star Game has traveled all the way to the Bronx. In fact, the Yankees closer knows all about it. And he says thanks, but no thanks.
The Mets have dropped to a season-low six games under .500 after going 2-4 on their six-game homestand. The Mets’ 1-0, 10-inning win last Tuesday night against the White Sox was the second extra-inning, one-hitter in Mets history.
“Harvey was as advertised tonight,” Ventura said after the game. “He was as dominant as anyone they’ve seen. He’s (Justin) Verlander-like — he has velocity, movement and his presence is as good as advertised.”
