Due to persistent rain in the New York area, the Mets/Marlins game has been postponed to July 18th. The Mets are hoping to get a game going tomorrow night against the Washington Nationals, but ominous weather looms all week.

In the meantime, figure out who to replace David Wright with on your fantasy team. He’s heading to the DL…

These guys are joining the club again.

Roster Moves Since Yesterday:

 


 

Marlins relief pitcher Burke Badenhop singled in the winning run off Ryota Igarashi in the 11th inning with 2 outs to lead the Marlins to a 2-1 win over the Mets.  The loss drops the Mets to 19-22.

Before the game started, the Mets learned that David Wright would be missing some time due to a stress fracture in his lower back.  After waiting through a rain delay that prolonged the start of the game, the Mets finally took the field.  From there, Mike Pelfrey and Josh Johnson would lock into a pitcher’s duel.  The Mets drew first blood, with Justin Turner’s RBI double in the 4th inning.  But the Marlins would tie the game at 1 on Mike Stanton’s solo blast to lead off the 7th.

The New York Mets defeated the San Francisco Giants 5-2 in a Thursday matinee at CitiField. After losing five of their last six games, they finally earn a much needed victory at home. The Mets are currently 13-18 and look to inch closer to .500 this weekend.

The New York Mets, behind some late-game clutch hitting, beat the Florida Marlins 6-4 in 10 innings and evened their record at 1-1.

It was an exciting game that started off as a pitcher’s duel between Jon Niese and Ricky Nolasco.  Niese was shaky in the first inning, allowing the Marlins to jump out to a quick 2-0 lead on a bases loaded, 2-run single by Logan Morrison.  However, he settled in nicely after that, retiring the next 11 Marlins in a row.

In like a lion and out like a lamb! It’s one of the reasons why I love the month of March. However, the most obvious reason of course is the start of baseball. For me, no sport can compare to America’s greatest pastime, so NCAA Basketball and Hockey acquire very little of my attention this time of the year. I know we’ve only seen a modest glimpse of spring training games thus far, but I have already made my Opening Day roster decisions for the New York Mets. Some are given, while others may surprise you.

Happy Saturday morning everyone! Hope you are all in a “melo” mood these days with the latest Knicks trade. The NBA is ruling headlines these days with the recent trading deadline; however, this week I will continue poking fun at baseball, since it is my favorite sport. Please feel free to “laugh out loud” or even chuckle to yourself at any of these mockeries.

Note: The following is NOT based on fact. If in any case these jokes become real headlines, you have the right to consider me psychic.
