But don’t panic. Seriously. Hat tip to Josh Norris/The Trentonian, a tremendous Thunder beat reporter and must follow on Twitter @JNorris427. Here’s the Puello injury.
Look, I don’t think moving Daniel Murphy to first base for a week, or whatever this turns out to be, will ruin his progress. But Daniel Murphy has worked hard to become a viable major league second baseman, and succeeded. Per Ultimate Zone Rating, Murphy is above average this year…. Read More →
The three replacements set to turn the season around are: Josh Satin, whose .912 OPS at Triple-A Las Vegas is very good, and actually better on the road (.926 OPS) than home (.895 OPS). Sounds like he’ll play first base regularly, where his defense isn’t great. There’s also Josh Edgin,... Read More →
Get swept by the Marlins, shame on you. Get swept by the Marlins twice, three players get sent to Triple-A. Ike Davis, Mike Baxter and Robert Carson are Las Vegas-bound. Vegas’ game is live: stay tuned to see who gets pulled from the game to replace these three. Won’t speculate,... Read More →
Unstoppable group Of .230-hitting Fish Stomp Mets’ dreams again
The Mets designated Rick Ankiel for assignment and called up Kirk Nieuwenhuis.

Tonight’s Nats-Mets game has been postponed due to rain. But we’ll have a first round pick soon, and he’s totally going to make you forget Michael Bourn (the Mets hope).
So what’s the hurry, getting Zack Wheeler up to New York? Such a question would have sounded ridiculous just a couple of weeks ago. But after Dillon Gee’s performance last night, there’s no obvious answer for who should head to the bullpen when Wheeler is brought up from Triple-A Las… Read More →

Rare Parnell off night Mars Quintanilla’s triple, Hefner’s mastery
While the Mets didn’t have a great weekend, Ike Davis sure did. Davis hit a two-run homer in Sunday’s 11-6 loss, and now sports a 1.000 OPS for June in seven plate appearances over two days, following a combined April/May effort of .496. This is no surprise: Davis posted a… Read More →
