Yasiel Puig admired a home run too long and the Mets had a cow about it

Thu, 22 Jun 2017 13:52:29 GMT

For the second time in two weeks, Yasiel Puig has angered the baseball establishment and the traditionalists who run it. Last week, it was a middle finger to heckling fans after a homer, this time it’s admiring a homer too long for the New York Mets’ liking. This isn’t an uncommon bit of Unwritten Rules Theater in baseball, where tradition states players not celebrate their accomplishments on the field.



Making Fun of Faith: Tim Tebow's Christianity Mocked by Minor League Team

Wed, 21 Jun 2017 14:24:21 GMT

Some would say there's a lot to make fun of when it comes to Tim Tebow, the former NFL quarterback and current minor league baseball player in the New York Mets organization. Basically, Tim Tebow could be considered really annoying. The Charleston RiverDogs, a minor league affiliate of the New York Yankees, found this out the hard way.



And That Happened: Wednesday’s Scores and Highlights

Thu, 22 Jun 2017 11:48:09 GMT

Dodgers 8, Mets 2: Yasmani Grandal hit two solo homers, but it was Yasiel Puig‘s three-run homer in the bottom of the fourth which padded the Dodgers’ lead to 5-1 and essentially ended the competitive portion of the ballgame. It started the cranky portion, however, as Puig admired the blast and took a slow trot which caused several Mets players to chirp at him. The Mets have dropped six of seven.



Wilmer Flores calls out Yasiel Puig for lack of hustle, showboating

Thu, 22 Jun 2017 22:35:47 GMT

Dodgers OF Yasiel Puig hit a home run against the Mets during the fourth inning Wednesday, after which he stood at home plate admiring his work before taking 32 seconds to round the bases. As he rounded first base, Wilmer Flores told Puig to run, not jog, at which point Puig slowed up, looked back, and cursed at Flores, creating a visual tension on field. "I think there's a way to enjoy a home run," Flores explained to reporters, when asked after the game about the altercation. Puig later admitted to jogging, but justified it by saying he he took offense to the Mets preferring to face him, and simply throw fastballs to him down the plate, as opposed to facing Joc Pederson, who hits before Puig and was intentionally walked.

Pete Flynn, longtime New York Mets groundskeeper, dies at 79

Thu, 22 Jun 2017 05:36:53 GMT

Pete Flynn, a popular groundskeeper for the New York Mets who spent five decades manicuring baseball diamonds from the Polo Grounds to Citi Field, died on Wednesday. Easily recognizable with his fire-red hair and beard, Flynn began his tenure with the Mets during their inaugural season in 1962 at the old Polo Grounds. Flynn was inducted into the Major League Baseball Groundskeepers Hall of Fame in 2015 and honored with the Mets Hall of Fame Achievement Award in 2012.



The Dodgers have never hit more homers than they are right now

Wed, 21 Jun 2017 05:44:06 GMT

Corey Seager hit three home runs for the Los Angeles Dodgers on Tuesday night. Cody Bellinger hit another, because of course he did. If this were NBA Jam someone would be bellowing, “they’re on fire!” Because the Dodgers are hitting more runs lately than they ever have.



Mets place Zack Wheeler on DL with biceps tendinitis

Thu, 22 Jun 2017 01:30:51 GMT

Another Mets pitcher has landed on the disabled list. The Mets announced on Wednesday that starter Zack Wheeler has been placed on the 10-day disabled list with biceps tendinitis. In related roster moves, the club optioned infielder Matt Reynolds to



Back in saddle, Mets' Matz faces Dodgers

Thu, 22 Jun 2017 07:49:20 GMT

The New York Mets can wonder what their season might have looked like if Steve Matz had been available from the start, before injuries overwhelmed the rotation. The left-hander, who will start Thursday against the Los Angeles Dodgers, is one of five Mets starters who have spent time on the disabled list this season, joining ace Noah Syndergaard, Seth Lugo, Zack Wheeler and Matt Harvey. Los Angeles, riding a six-game winning streak, will be looking to complete a four-game series sweep.



LEADING OFF: Yankees' skid at 7, Dodgers on homer roll

Wed, 21 Jun 2017 06:31:55 GMT

Despite another home run by Aaron Judge, who leads the majors with 24, the Yankees lost their seventh straight game Tuesday night - their longest slide in a single season since April 2007. Nolasco is winless in nine starts since April 27, losing his last six. Corey Seager, Cody Bellinger and the Los Angeles Dodgers can't be kept in the park right now.



Seager clubs three homers in Dodgers' 12-0 win over Mets

Wed, 21 Jun 2017 05:15:06 GMT

Things you should know about tonight's game... 1) Robert Gsellman became the second straight Mets starter to allow four runs in the first inning. Corey Seager and Cody Bellinger connected on two-run homers off Gsellman (5-5), who surrendered eight runs -- seven earned -- on nine hits and three walks in 4 1/3 innings. 2) Seager joined Washington's Anthony Rendon as players to homer three times in one game against New York this season. He finished with four hits and a career-high six RBIs. Bellinger went deep for the third time in two games and Yasmani Grandal also homered for the Dodgers, who have hit 13 roundtrippers in their last three games. 3) Jay Bruce, T.J. Rivera, Rene Rivera and Gavin



Seager hits 3 of Dodgers' 5 HRs in 12-0 win over Mets

Wed, 21 Jun 2017 06:40:23 GMT

Corey Seager suddenly joined the Los Angeles Dodgers' home run parade Tuesday night, and right-hander Brandon McCarthy thinks he knows what prompted him. The Dodgers' other young star, rookie Cody Bellinger, has been making history en route to the National League home run lead. ''Whatever Bellinger's doing, I don't understand,'' McCarthy said.



Bruce: Mets playoff push must start now

Wed, 21 Jun 2017 18:25:46 GMT

With five losses in their last six games and double-digit deficits in the divisional and Wild Card races, Jay Bruce understands the predicament the Mets are currently in. The outfielder told the Daily News that New York needs to play better, "or we're not going to make the playoffs." "The only thing that matters is what's ahead. What's behind you does not matter at all," Bruce said. "You can't say we lost this many games, so we have to win these games. I don't believe that you can play that game when it comes to the season, because it's so long and there are so many ups and downs." After being on the trading block this past offseason, Bruce has been the Mets' most consistent player this year.



Banged-up Mets put RHP Wheeler on 10-day disabled list

Thu, 22 Jun 2017 00:57:24 GMT

The ailing New York Mets lost a third member of their rotation when right-hander Zack Wheeler was put on the 10-day disabled list Wednesday because of biceps tendinitis. Wheeler joined starters Noah Syndergaard and Matt Harvey on the DL. Closer Jeurys Familia, shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera, second baseman Neil Walker, outfielder Juan Lagares and third baseman David Wright are among other Mets now sidelined.



MLB: Scherzer flirts with no-hitter in loss to Marlins

Thu, 22 Jun 2017 05:53:16 GMT

Max Scherzer was closing in on his third-career no-hitter in MLB on Wednesday, but an unfortunate ground ball ended his run in the Washington Nationals' 2-1 loss to the Miami Marlins. With one out in the eighth inning, Scherzer still had his no-hitter

Puig, Grandal power Dodgers past Mets 8-2 and into 1st place

Thu, 22 Jun 2017 07:38:50 GMT

Puig riled the frustrated Mets with a long look at his three-run homer, Yasmani Grandal added two solo shots and the streaking Dodgers took over first place in the NL West by battering New York pitching again for an 8-2 victory Wednesday night. Rich Hill turned in his best five innings of the season for the Dodgers, who have won six straight and 12 of 13.



Game 71: Mets at Dodgers, 10:10 p.m. on SNY

Wed, 21 Jun 2017 23:59:32 GMT

"The Mets have some serious pitching talent," I wrote in Spring Training, moments after watching Zack Wheeler, Matt Harvey and Noah Syndergaard simultaneously throw bullpen sessions in February. "I actually take it for granted. But when seeing them all lined up together, throwing side by side, it takes the realization to a different level." I wish I owned a time machine. I also wish pitchers weren't so easily and routinely injured. The thing is, while I understand that injuries are part of the game, especially for pitchers, do they all need to also pitch poorly at the same time? As intimated in my quote from February, this season's success was supposed to happen because of the starting pitching.



Mets starting pitchers have been an unmitigated disaster

Thu, 22 Jun 2017 16:45:40 GMT

The Mets have been hurt by injuries up and down the lineup, and by consistent ineptitude in the field, but the more significant culprit is clearly their pitching. It wasn't supposed to be this way. Even with an injury-plagued rotation, the 2016 Mets surpassed expectations and ranked as one of the top staffs in the league. With nearly all of last year's successful hurlers returning (Bartolo Colon, who is struggling mightily in Atlanta this year, being the lone exception), reasonable projections anticipated similar results, even if not quite up to 2016's exceptional standards. Instead, Mets fans have watched nothing short of an unmitigated disaster unfold in the rotation, one start at a time...



Yoenis Cespedes advises younger player to hustle

Thu, 22 Jun 2017 12:46:29 GMT

Bill wrote last night about Yasiel Puig admiring a homer and raising the ire of the New York Mets because of it. Between innings, Mets veteran Jose Reyes and outfielder Yoenis Cespedes, also from Cuba, spoke with Puig on the field. “After I talked to Cespedes, he told me, `Try to run a little bit faster,’ and tried to give me some advice,” Puig said through a translator.



Joe Girardi thinks rule preventing runners from bowling over catchers has led to injuries

Wed, 21 Jun 2017 02:25:33 GMT

NEW YORK -- Yankees manager Joe Girardi thinks the rule preventing runners from bowling over catchers has led to injuries like the one sustained by top New York prospect Gleyber Torres, who will miss the rest of the season because of a torn elbow ligament. A 20-year-old infielder, Torres was hurt Saturday on a slide into home plate for Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre at Buffalo. New York Mets medical director Dr. David Altchek will operate Wednesday to repair a torn ulnar collateral ligament in Torres' non-throwing left arm. "It just seems like players are forgetting how to slide today," Girardi said Tuesday. "I think slides have become a lot more creative at home plate because catchers don't

What happened to the great rotation?

MLB Power Rankings: NL West ruling the baseball world

Thu, 22 Jun 2017 15:18:43 GMT

A few fellow ball writers and I have taken to celebrating draft day by recalling our favorite old scouting descriptors, some of which are real, some made up but close enough to sound sort of legit. Think of these being side-mouth mumbled by a well-tanned



Corey Seager hits 3 home runs against Mets

Wed, 21 Jun 2017 04:34:11 GMT

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Corey Seager continued the Los Angeles Dodgers' home-run parade Tuesday night, hitting three against the New York Mets. Seager matched his career-high with the three home runs, the Dodgers adding two more, one each from rookie Cody
