    Holy Sh!#, Bartolo Colon Hit a Double!

    The internet has really gotten a kick out of watching Mets pitcher Bartolo Colon hit this season. And of course, by “hit” I mean “swing his bat as hard as he can in the vicinity of home plate and shake like a bowl full of jelly.” The guy played half a season with Montreal back […]

    In my opinion, I’d say the classic bat-flip following a homer (or in Yasiel Puig‘s case, a triple) can’t even hold a candle to Jenrry Mejia‘s original moonwalk off the mound following a strikeout. The latter took place during the eighth inning of last night’s contest between Mejia’s New York Mets and the New York […]

    Stat Line of the Night — 8/7/2013 — Matt Harvey

    Matt Harvey has been one of the lone bright spots for the New York Mets this season, as he was named the starting pitcher for the National League during the 2013 All-Star Game at Citi Field, and he entered last night’s contest with an 8-3 record and a 2.21 ERA.  However, there was still one […]

    The New York Mets are currently in the midst of another disappointing year, but they have still managed to produce a few bright spots during what has certainly been a season to forget thus far.  One of those bright spots is 24-year-old pitcher Matt Harvey, who improved his record to 7-1 while lowering his ERA […]
