New York Mets
“We’re not out of it yet,” the usually reserved, quiet slugger said on Wednesday. “Everybody in the room feels like we have a chance, so we’re going to go with that.”
Lucas Duda hit a three-run homer, Eric Campbell also connected and the New York Mets beat the Oakland Athletics 8-5 on Wednesday to snap a three-game losing streak.
This lineup has got to go, at all costs. Guys like Castro and Stanton have got to be looking like attractive targets right now, regardless of money or the talent outlay to get them.
Crisp hit a tiebreaking three-run triple in the fourth inning to help Scott Kazmir earn his career-best 14th win, and the A’s beat the New York Mets 6-2 on Tuesday night to snap a five-game losing streak.
The New York Mets ended their homestand with a whimper, dropping the final two games of their four-game set with the Chicago Cubs.
The five-game run matches the club’s longest streak. New York also went five games with no more than four hits in 2004 and 1963.
Kyle Hendricks and two relievers held New York to four or fewer hits for the fifth straight game, Anthony Rizzo and Javier Baez hit long homers, and the Chicago Cubs rallied for a 4-1 victory over the Mets on Monday.
New York Mets right-hander Bartolo Colon has been scratched from his start because he is going to the Dominican Republic to be with his ailing mother.
Fast forward to mid-August, and Travis d’Arnaud, Lucas Duda and Juan Lagares have made tremendous progress — and taken their games to new levels.
Zack Wheeler struck out 10 in a gritty performance, Eric Campbell hit a three-run homer and the New York Mets beat the free-swinging Chicago Cubs 3-2 Friday night.
A lot can change in a year. Just ask Matt Harvey. In August 2013, he was the toast of the town. Then he got injured — and things got weird.
The Mets might want to think twice about wanting Colorado sluggers Carlos Gonzalez and Troy Tulowitzki.
Matt Harvey is a tremendous talent. He can also cause one heck of a headache. Mets manager Terry Collins set the right-hander straight on Thursday.
Mets brass has gone halfway with Collins, and that beats the heck out of the alternative. But they’ll do him an even greater service by actually spending some money this offseason.
Major League Baseball said Wednesday that the right-hander tested positive for a metabolite of Nandrolone in violation of the Minor League drug prevention and treatment program.
