You can’t touch Harvey on the mound. And apparently you shouldn’t mess with him off it.
The Mets bullpen might have to make room for Brian Wilson — and his trademark beard.
Mets reliever Jon Rauch made it interesting. But in the end Dickey got win No. 20, furthering his case for the National League Cy Young Award.
Sandy Alderson needs to act swiftly in order to restore confidence in the eyes of the team’s fan base. With that in mind, here is what I think are the top five offseason issues he needs to address prior to the 2013 season.
Johan Santana gave up his fifth grand slam as a Met on Friday, which according to Elias, broke a tie with Ron Taylor, Tug McGraw, Al Leiter and Armando Benitez for the most allowed in club history.
The Mets won by a whisker on Sunday night as they held off a late Braves comeback to win 6-5.
Chris Young And Chris Capuano were teammates with the Mets last season and shared one common trait above all — resiliency. New York’s starter got the better of their first head-to-head matchup since free agency Thursday.
What the Mets really need is a new arm or two out there. That might be something for Sandy Alderson to consider well before the July 31 trade deadline.
Ultimately, this is a team that has a very small margin for error, and they have committed way too many errors to survive.
The Yankees hit four home runs off Johan Santana Friday night in his first start after no-hitting the Cardinals. According to the Elias Sports Bureau, that matches the most home runs allowed by a pitcher in his first start after throwing a no-hitter or a perfect game.
Terry Collins was worried that the error David Wright just made could lead to trouble. With the way the Yankees have hit this month, who could blame him?
Russell Martin and the homer-happy Yankees appeared a little out of practice when it came to celebrating a game-winning homer. No matter, they sent the Mets back to Queens without a win to show for their Bronx trip.
Russell Martin led off the ninth with his second homer of the game and the New York Yankees took advantage of some shoddy infield defense to beat the Mets 5-4.
Terry Collins knew he was taking a risk. With Chris Young starting his first major league game in more than a year, and a short bullpen, the Mets manager had few options.
Todd Frazier homered twice, Brandon Phillips hit a tying single off Jon Rauch in the eighth and the Cincinnati Reds beat the New York Mets 6-3 Wednesday night.
