Tom Seaver's 5 most iconic moments with Mets

He came back to where it all began.


Mets call up OF Kaczmarski, RHP Smith

Shaking up their roster following a 6-4 loss to the Rockies on Thursday, the Mets called up outfielder Kevin Kaczmarski and reliever Drew Smith from Triple-A Las Vegas on Friday. Both players join a big league roster for the first time.


Despite positive signs, Mets fall to Rockies

Steven Matz allowed five runs in 5 2/3 innings in a 6-4 loss to the Rockies. Homering for the third consecutive game, Nolan Arenado drove home five runs against Matz, giving him nine RBIs in a three-game stretch. The Mets could not match that type of offensive output, going mostly silent after Todd Frazier's solo homer in the first inning and Nimmo's RBI single in the third.


Mets, Wheeler welcome Dodgers to Citi

The Mets' challenging road trip may be behind them, but their schedule doesn't grow any easier as they return home to face the defending National League West champion Dodgers. Zack Wheeler will open the three-game series on Friday at Citi Field, starting opposite left-hander Alex Wood. And if the Mets needed any more motivation, longtime antagonist Chase Utley is due to return from the disabled list in time for the 7:10 p.m. ET game, which will be broadcast as MLB Network's Showcase Game.


The Mets' most pressing question

Shifting powers within the National League East have created a new dynamic as the non-waiver Trade Deadline approaches, with more potential buyers than sellers dotting the landscape.


Relentless Mets fall behind Lugo's short outing

Even taking into account Seth Lugo's dud performance Wednesday night at Coors Field, where he allowed six runs -- three earned -- in a 10-8 loss to the Rockies, the Mets' starting staff has performed remarkably well in Noah Syndergaard's absence.


Even with splint on finger, Thor 'throwing rockets'

Although Noah Syndergaard began a throwing progression off flat ground this week, he did so with a modified splint on his index finger. Syndergaard said that while he is not ready to begin pitching off a mound, doctors may clear him to throw without the splint when they examine him later this week in New York.

Make Music Day – NY

The Department of Music, Multimedia, Theatre and Dance Celebrates Make Music Day
Lehman College participates in global celebration of music making on the longest day of the year

For the past dozen or so years, New York City has celebrated the solstice with a day of free, outdoor music, http://www.makemusicny.org/. Sadly, the Bronx has been historically underrepresented with few opportunities for Bronx residents to participate.

To celebrate Lehman’s 50th anniversary and help make our campus a cultural cornerstone in the borough, we will be participating as a host location for the day. Please join us for a day-long celebration of outdoor music, summer, and community on June 21. The day’s performances will include current students, faculty, alumni and community artists.  10 AM to 8:45 PM at the Lehman College Amphitheater. 

About Make Music Day:

Mets unable to overcome Vargas' struggles

The Mets' offense continued to produce but it wasn't enough as the Rockies won a slugfest, 10-8, on Tuesday. Jason Vargas allowed seven runs in 2 1/3 innings as New York's three-game winning streak was snapped.


Ramos to have season-ending surgery

The Mets announced Tuesday that AJ Ramos will undergo surgery to repair a torn labrum in his right shoulder, ending his season and perhaps his Mets career.


Matz can deliver series split vs. Rockies

Sporting a 2.47 ERA since the beginning of May, Steven Matz will look to keep rolling when he starts the Mets' series finale Thursday in Denver. Matz will oppose Rockies left-hander Kyle Freeland, whose presence should give the Mets reason to stack their lineup with right-handed batters such as Jose Bautista. First pitch is scheduled for 3:10 p.m. ET.


Lugo looks to return to his stingy ways vs. Rox

As Noah Syndergaard begins to ramp up to a return from a finger injury, the man who replaced him in the Mets' rotation, Seth Lugo, will make his third start in an 8:40 p.m. ET game at Coors Field. Lugo snapped a 13-inning scoreless streak last time out, allowing five runs in five innings in Arizona. He'll face Rockies right-hander Chad Bettis.


2017-18 StudentsFirst Rewards Winners Announced at MCU Park

BROOKLYN, N.Y. (Jun. 19, 2018) - On Tuesday night, the City University of New York Athletic Conference announced the winners of its StudentsFirst Rewards contest for 2017-18, as part of CUNY Night at MCU Park in Brooklyn.


Bruce goes on DL with right hip injury

The New York Mets announced on Tuesday that the club has placed outfielder Jay Bruce on the 10-day disabled list, retroactive to Monday, with a sore right hip and recalled right-hander Tim Peterson from Triple-A Las Vegas.


deGrom stellar again as dominant run continues

Circumstances had grown unfathomable enough for Jacob deGrom that after the National League Cy Young Award candidate's last start, teammate Todd Frazier approached him to apologize for the Mets' offensive woes. Over a 10-start stretch, deGrom had posted a 0.87 ERA. The Mets were 2-8 in those games. So it was a completely foreign feeling when, in the seventh inning of a 12-2 blowout over the Rockies on Monday, deGrom joked that he almost didn't want to beat out a fielder's choice because he didn't feel like running the bases. Already with six runs on the board at that time, the Mets had given deGrom as much support as in his previous five starts combined. They went on to add six more to seal up deGrom's first win in exactly one month.


Nimmo homers twice as Mets topple Rockies

Brandon Nimmo hit an inside-the-park homer to lead off the game and a more conventional round-tripper in the seventh as the Mets beat Rockies, 12-2, to take the series opener on Monday. Jacob deGrom went eight innings, allowing one earned run and striking out seven to help New York win its third in a row.


Nimmo homers twice as Mets topple Rockies

Brandon Nimmo hit an inside-the-park homer to lead off the game and a more conventional round-tripper in the seventh as the Mets beat Rockies, 12-2, to take the series opener on Monday. Jacob deGrom went eight innings, allowing one earned run and striking out seven to help New York win its third in a row.


Asdrubal, Nimmo eyeing NL All-Star Game

In the second update of All-Star voting released Monday by Major League Baseball, second baseman Asdrubal Cabrera was the only Met who ranked among the top five at his position. Brandon Nimmo's write-in candidacy for the All-Star Game hasn't gained enough traction to place him in the Top 15 National League outfielders in voting, but his play on the field could get him to the game regardless.


Nimmo leads off game with inside-the-park HR

Brandon Nimmo led off Monday's game against the Rockies with an inside-the-park home run. Facing Rockies lefty Tyler Anderson, Nimmo hit an 0-2 cutter off the right-center field wall. As the ball ricocheted back onto the field, he raced around the bases in 14.70 seconds, the fifth-fastest home-to-home time Statcast™ has recorded since its inception in 2015.


Mets remaining patient on possible trades

Entering this week's series at Coors Field seven games out of a National League Wild Card spot, and 10 1/2 out of their division, the Mets are beginning to come to grips with the possibility that they will not be serious playoff contenders this summer. But they're not there quite yet. While a team official said the Mets are open to listening on offers for all their players, including starters Jacob deGrom and Noah Syndergaard, he cautioned that they won't likely complete any deals soon. The official said the Mets first want to play out the next few weeks to see if they climb back into contention.


Mets send Vargas to take on Rox at Coors Field

For as long as Noah Syndergaard remains on the disabled list, Jason Vargas' place in the Mets' rotation is secure. In the meantime, Vargas will look to keep strengthening his resume when he starts Tuesday at Coors Field. Shaky early this season, Vargas owns a 3.00 ERA over his last three starts, though he hasn't gone deeper than five innings in any of them. He'll oppose Rockies right-hander German Marquez in the 8:40 p.m. ET game.


Asdrubal locked in NL All-Star ballot race

The top spots in the National League are unchanged in the latest 2018 Camping World MLB All-Star ballot update released Monday. But the races at catcher and second base, in particular, are much too close for comfort.


Mets stun D-backs with 2 HRs, 4 runs in 9th

Stymied for much of Sunday, the Mets scored a 5-3 victory over the D-backs at Chase Field when Brandon Nimmo hit a go-ahead, two-run homer off Brad Boxberger in the ninth, and Asdrubal Cabrera followed with a solo shot. The late dramatics took Mets starter Zack Wheeler off the hook for what would have been a tough-luck loss, after he struck out eight over six innings of two-run ball.


Father's Day meaningful for Mets, D-backs

The Mets and D-backs honored dads everywhere by wearing blue caps, wristbands and ribbons on their jerseys for Father's Day.


Mets closer Familia activated from disabled list

The Mets' bullpen just got a bit stronger. The team activated closer Jeurys Familia, who had been sidelined since June 7 due to right shoulder soreness, before Sunday's series finale against the D-backs.


Conforto's HR, 4 RBIs help Mets snap skid in AZ

Less than a week after snapping an 0-for-22 funk, Michael Conforto broke out on Saturday with a home run and four RBIs in a 5-1 win over the D-backs that ended the Mets' four-game losing streak. Steven Matz took advantage of Conforto's big night, holding Arizona to one run over 6 2/3 innings.


deGrom seeks support in opener at Coors

The Mets are 2-8 in the last 10 games Jacob deGrom has started, despite his 0.87 ERA in those contests. They can only hope a trip to hitter-happy Coors Field will help them give deGrom a bit more support. He'll open a four-game series there, starting an 8:40 p.m. ET game opposite left-hander Tyler Anderson.


Mets get reinforcements for Father's Day finale

The Mets will grow healthier for their series finale today at Chase Field, with plans to welcome closer Jeurys Familia (right shoulder soreness) back from the disabled list and outfielder Jay Bruce (lower back soreness) back to the starting lineup. Zack Wheeler will start that 4:10 p.m. ET game opposite D-backs right-hander Clay Buchholz.


Thor cracks up as Gsellman takes bullpen cart

Visionaries are never appreciated in their own time.


Familia set to come off disabled list

The Mets' bullpen is about to grow a bit stronger. The team expects to activate closer Jeurys Familia, who has been sidelined since June 7 due to right shoulder soreness, before Sunday's series finale against the D-backs.


Lugo, Mets' bats scuffle in loss to D-backs

Seth Lugo allowed five runs in five innings as the Mets fell to the D-backs 7-3 on Friday for their fourth straight loss.


Matz on mound after getting start pushed back

The Mets pushed Steven Matz's start back two days, to Saturday, due to a blister on his left middle finger. Matz believes he'll be at full strength when he takes the mound in a 10:10 p.m. ET game at Chase Field, pitching opposite D-backs lefty Patrick Corbin. The Mets certainly hope so; since the start of May, Matz owns a 2.68 ERA.


Flores returns after stint on DL; Kelly optioned

Wilmer Flores returned to the Mets' lineup Friday against the D-backs after missing two-and-a-half weeks due to back soreness.


Mets sign their top Draft pick OF Kelenic

The Mets have signed outfielder Jarred Kelenic from Waukesha West High School (WI), the sixth overall pick in the first-round of the 2018 MLB Draft.


Mets use D-backs' bullpen cart for delivery

It brings the heat, so watch out.


Mets' bullpen unable to slow surging D-backs

With Jeurys Familia and AJ Ramos on the disabled list, and Seth Lugo in the rotation, the Mets have struggled to find consistency closing out games. They struggled again Thursday, when Hansel Robles issued a leadoff walk, Jerry Blevins allowed both batters he faced to reach base, and Paul Sewald forced home a critical insurance run in the Mets' 6-3 loss to the D-backs.


Matz at full strength, ready to start vs. D-backs

The Mets' rotation shuffle, which they announced Wednesday night after landing in Arizona, was due to a blister that tore off of Steven Matz's left middle finger earlier this week. After team athletic trainers treated the blister, they recommended the Mets push Matz's start back from Thursday to Saturday -- a "luxury," as Matz called it, that the team could afford after skipping Jason Vargas' last turn through the rotation.


The 2018 Ippies Awards

The post The 2018 Ippies Awards appeared first on CUNY J-School.


Conforto among those poised for turnaround

It is difficult to know how much of a role the shoulder recovery might be playing a role in Michael Conforto's slow start, but one must think his talent eventually will take over and help him emerge from his season-long funk.

Lugo, Gsellman among most improved pitchers

Justin Verlander is 2018's most improved pitcher, and maybe that makes sense, because he might be 2018's best pitcher. Who else has improved the most? It's an interesting mix of health, new pitches, and changing strategies.


Mets' funk deepens despite deGrom's 7 IP

Jacob deGrom did enough to keep the Mets in the 2-0 loss to the Braves at SunTrust Park on Wednesday afternoon, but Mike Soroka did more than enough.


Syndergaard to rest until symptoms subside

There is still no timetable for Noah Syndergaard's return to the Mets' starting rotation, manager Mickey Callaway said Wednesday. Syndergaard received a second opinion on Tuesday regarding the discomfort he had been feeling in his right index finger.


Lugo looks to remain stingy vs. D-backs

Subbing for injured teammate Noah Syndergaard, Seth Lugo has yet to allow a run in two starts. Overall, Lugo has a 13-inning scoreless streak, which he'll put on the line when the Mets return to Chase Field for a 9:40 p.m. ET game Friday. Lugo will oppose right-hander Zack Godley.<P>


Mets look to Matz for D-backs opener

The Mets continue their three-city, 10-game tour when they face the D-backs for the first of a four-game series at Chase Field at 9:40 p.m. ET on Thursday. New York will send out left-hander Steven Matz, who surrendered his first home run since May 19 on Saturday, when he struck out six against the Yankees. Arizona will counter with Matt Koch, who has posted a 4.34 ERA through 10 starts since replacing Taijuan Walker in the starting rotation.

Mets come undone in sixth, fall to Braves

Like Zack Wheeler before him, Paul Sewald needed just one out to stop the bleeding in the sixth inning of the Mets' 8-2 loss to the Braves at SunTrust Park on Tuesday night. Instead of getting the out and stymieing a high-powered Braves offense from doing further damage, Sewald gave up a grand slam to Ozzie Albies.

Mets manager Mickey Callaway was ejected for the first time in his managerial career in the top of the sixth inning on Tuesday night against the Braves at SunTrust Park.

The Braves will counter with Mike Soroka, who will make his first start since May 12 after being placed on the disabled list.

Stanley Litlow–The Challenge for Business and Society: From Risk to Reward

 

Please join us at Roosevelt House as we welcome Stanley S. Litow, IBM’s Vice President of Corporate Citizenship & Corporate Affairs and President Emeritus of IBM’s Foundation, to mark the publication of his new book, The Challenge for Business and Society: From Risk to Reward. The role of corporations in society is among the most contested issues in American life, including corporate impact on the environment, income inequality and a range of social ills from discrimination and illiteracy to obesity and opioid addiction. In The Challenge for Business and Society, Litow offers a roadmap to improve corporate social responsibility.

Litow believes big companies will be motivated to step up their efforts to create jobs, reduce poverty, improve education and health, and address climate change issues — both domestically and around the world.  He argues that for some leaders in the private sector this is not a matter of public relations or charity. It is integral to their corporate strategy, resulting in creating new markets, reducing risks, attracting and retaining top talent, and generating growth and realizing opportunities. Litow makes the case that a corporation with a solid plan for giving back to society is producing real sustainable value.

Litow, a member of Roosevelt House’s advisory board, will be introduced by Carl McCall, Chairman of the State University of New York Board of Trustees, and former Comptroller of the State of New York.


Asdrubal seeking 1st All-Star trip as a Met

Given the struggles of so many of the Mets' hitters this season, those who have thrived have stood in stark relief. Chief among them is Asdrubal Cabrera, who ranked fourth among National League second basemen in the first update of the Camping World All-Star Ballot, released on Monday by Major League Baseball.

Remember me? Frazier powers Mets past Yanks

Asdrubal exits with apparent injury

The Mets lost one of their most productive hitters to an apparent injury on Sunday when Asdrubal Cabrera departed after three innings in the finale of the Subway Series.


Cespedes' absence taking a toll on Mets

Mets slugger Yoenis Cespedes is not close to a return. He suffered a setback during a Minor League game Saturday with Double-A Binghamton, and will now fly to Florida to reconnect with the Mets' rehabilitation staff. While manager Mickey Callaway said Cespedes is in a better place than he was a month ago, there are no longer any indications of when he might return.

Lugo embracing role as swingman for Mets

Although it took until the final day of May for Seth Lugo to make his first start of 2018, there was little surprise that he finally did start a game. The Mets have spoken often about how even the league's best teams typically use 10 to 12 starters over the course of the season. Lugo, who nearly made the rotation out of Spring Training, was bound to make an impact there eventually.

Nimmo connects for 1st career leadoff homer

Before Friday's Subway Series opener, Mets players spoke about how the pomp and circumstance of the crosstown rivalry could spark them out of a nearly season-long funk.

Mets tap deGrom to open Subway Series

The Mets have their top three pitchers lined up for the Subway Series, which begins Friday at Citi Field. Right-hander Jacob deGrom will start the 7:10 p.m. ET opener opposite Yankees right-hander Masahiro Tanaka. Steven Matz will pitch Saturday and Noah Syndergaard will come off the disabled list to start Sunday. There is also a chance Yeonis Cespedes could return from the disabled list for at least part of the series.


Balanced Draft nets top-ranked OF for Mets

The 2018 MLB Draft is now complete, and the Mets have added 40 new names to the organization. The organization selected two high school standouts on Day 1, then shifted to all college players on Day 2 and ended up with an assortment of players on Day 3.


Mets unable to back brilliant outing from Wheeler

Before returning home to Citi Field late last month, Mets manager Mickey Callaway said his team, which scuffled throughout May, had hit "rock bottom."

Wheeler aims to jumpstart Mets in matinee

Right-hander Zack Wheeler (2-4, 5.14 ERA), who allowed two runs in six innings last Friday against the Cubs, takes the mound Wednesday at 1:10 p.m. ET at Citi Field in the finale of the brief two-game series with the Orioles. Right-hander Dylan Bundy (3-7, 4.46 ERA) starts for the O's.


Mets' offensive struggles continue in tight loss

The Mets hoped the return of Todd Frazier would help their struggling lineup, or that a visit from the last-place Orioles would help spark a turnaround Tuesday night. But they managed just three hits and lost again, 2-1, to the Orioles at Citi Field.


Mets stick to college talent on Day 2 of Draft

Day 2 of the MLB Draft is complete and the Mets have added eight more potential prospects to the organization. After the Mets selected 18-year-old multifaceted outfielder Jarred Kelenic and 17-year-old right-handed pitcher Simeon Woods-Richardson, in the first and second round, respectively, on Monday night, the talent pool just kept growing on Tuesday. With a couple of position players, a few big bats and a number of pitchers the Mets have added a variety of robust players to the franchise.


Injury updates: Syndergaard, Cespedes

Noah Syndergaard is on track to return to the Mets' rotation Sunday night against the Yankees, after throwing 25 pitches in a simulated game Tuesday at Citi Field.


Cortes thrilled to join Mets, play alongside Hill

The Mets drafted Carlos Cortes as a second basemen in the third round of the MLB Draft on Tuesday afternoon, but the 20-year-old is really a jack of all trades. His most prominent talent may be the fact that he can throw with both arms, though that talent did not come easily.


Mets Draft pick Meyer has wonderful mustache

It's too beautiful for this world.


Frazier, Swarzak rejoin Mets after DL stints

The Mets on Tuesday returned infielder Todd Frazier and righthanded pitcher Anthony Swarzak from their rehabilitation assignments and reinstated them from the disabled list. Both will be active for Tuesday night's series opener with Baltimore. Additionally, right-handed pitcher Gerson Bautista has been optioned to Las Vegas (AAA) of the Pacific Coast League and left-handed pitcher Buddy Baumann has been designated for assignment.


Mets get coveted HS OF Kelenic with No. 6 pick

Mets fall as bats, defense can't pick up Matz

The Mets got an excellent pitching performance from lefty Steven Matz on Sunday, but couldn't back it with any semblance of offense as a pair of mental mistakes cost New York in a 2-0 loss to the Cubs at Citi Field.


Injury updates: Frazier, Cespedes, Swarzak

There have been few positive developments on the Mets' injury front for weeks however the tide seemed to be turning on that front as the club readied for its series finale with the Cubs on Sunday.


Vargas takes ball for Interleague opener

Jason Vargas' 2-4 career record against Baltimore doesn't tell the whole story of the southpaw's history with the Orioles. Vargas brings a career 2.23 ERA and a pair of complete games vs. the O's into Tuesday's series opener against the Baltimore, with first pitch slated for 7:10 p.m. ET. Righty Alex Cobb gets the ball for the Orioles.


Peterson throws seven solid frames

Here's MLB Pipeline's roundup of the top prospect performances in the Minor Leagues on Saturday.


Mets fan franchise-record 24 but fall in 14

Jacob deGrom continued his run of stellar pitching performances on Saturday night. Once again, it became the prologue for a heartbreaking loss. The Cubs' Albert Almora Jr. laced a double off Buddy Baumann with one out in the top of the 14th inning to ignite a six-run outburst and send the Mets to a 7-1 loss at Citi Field. Wasted in the defeat were deGrom's seven innings of one-run ball and career-high-tying 13 strikeouts, part of a 24-K franchise-record that also went for naught


deGrom delivers an ace of an outing, with 13 K's

Jacob deGrom equaled a career high with 13 strikeouts and posted his eighth straight start in which he allowed one run or fewer against the Cubs on Saturday night at Citi Field.


Foli reflects on 50-year anniversary as 1st pick

It has been 50 years since the Mets made Tim Foli the first overall pick in the 1968 Draft. This was a guy who was selected ahead of Thurman Munson, Steve Garvey and Gary Matthews. When informed of the anniversary recently, Foli couldn't believe it.


deGrom, Matz, Thor lined up for Subway Series

The Mets aim to throw their three most consistent starters at the crosstown-rival Yankees next weekend when the teams play a three-game series at Citi Field, though manager Mickey Callaway did not say in what order Jacob deGrom, Steven Matz and Noah Syndergaard -- who would be coming off the disabled list -- were slated to pitch.


Joey Bats takes on favored foe in Lester

The recently acquired Jose Bautista should be eager to hit when the Mets face the Cubs in Sunday's 1:10 p.m. ET series finale. Bautista has stepped in against Chicago starter Jon Lester 71 times in his career; though he's hit just .230 against the southpaw, he has five home runs and three doubles among his 14 hits off him. The Mets send lefty Steven Matz to the mound for his first start since a sprained finger on his left hand forced him from Tuesday's start after three innings.


Mets hold inaugural Shannon Forde tourney

In a small New Jersey borough just ten minutes off the George Washington Bridge in the shadow of the sunny Manhattan skyline, the Little Ferry Police Athletic League and the New York Mets held the inaugural Shannon Dalton Forde Memorial tournament on Saturday morning.


Mets fall below .500, prompting team meeting

Shortly after the Mets' 7-4 loss to the Cubs on Friday, which dropped them below .500 for the first time this season, manager Mickey Callaway stalked into the clubhouse to do "something that I said we weren't going to do." Setting aside his distaste for team meetings, Callaway implored the Mets to "play the game the right way." He called out Michael Conforto in particular for a sloppy defensive play. He urged fundamentals.


Mets lose lead, fall below .500 for first time

Thee Mets dropped a 7-4 game to the Cubs at Citi Field to fall under .500 for the first time this season. Brandon Nimmo did his part, homering in the third inning to give New York a lead. But few others did, leaving the Mets exposed to key Cubs rallies in the seventh and eighth innings.


Bruce exits early, but expected to play Saturday

Outfielder Jay Bruce exited the Mets' game against the Cubs on Friday night at Citi Field after the fourth inning due to lower back discomfort.


Find Nimmo in ASG? Write-in option hits 7th HR

It has hardly gone unnoticed that Brandon Nimmo has caught fire -- his two-run homer in the third inning Friday was his fifth in 11 games -- just as MLB All-Star Game voting is beginning. Nimmo, conspicuously, is not on the ballot, despite offensive rate stats that rival Mike Trout, Mookie Betts and some of the game's other greats.


Stellar 2018 could send Asdrubal back to ASG

The one constant of the Mets' season has been Asdrubal Cabrera. While others have faltered, slumped, landed on the disabled list or otherwise fallen short of expectations, Cabrera has started nearly every one of the Mets' games this season, floating among the National League leaders in batting average and OPS for much of it.


deGrom puts dominant run to test vs. Cubs

In the midst of one of the most dominant runs of his career, Jacob deGrom will return to the mound for a 7:15 p.m. ET game Saturday against the Cubs. Over his last seven starts, spanning 40 1/3 innings, deGrom owns a 0.45 ERA with 55 strikeouts and 13 walks. But he is just 2-0 in those outings due to bullpen issues behind him. He'll oppose left-hander Mike Montgomery.


Lobaton returns from Triple-A; Copeland DFA'd

The Mets made a roster move to add a bench player to their lineup on Friday, bringing up switch-hitting catcher Jose Lobaton, while right-handed pitcher Scott Copeland was designated for assignment. This move puts the Mets back to an eight-man bullpen and a four-man bench.


Here's how Twitter reacted to Johan's no-no

One random person actually predicted it would happen.


2019 CUNY Golf and Tennis Classic Set For April 29 at Old Westbury Golf & Country Club

FLUSHING, N.Y. (Jun. 1, 2018) - On Friday, the City University of New York Athletic Conference announced that the 2019 CUNY Golf and Tennis Classic will be held at the prestigious Old Westbury Golf and Country Club on Monday, Apr. 29 in Old Westbury.


Lugo sharp, but bullpen labors in Mets' loss

The first three Mets pitchers to enter in relief of Seth Lugo all allowed runs. True to form, two of the five weren't on the team last weekend. Many of them would go on to play central roles in a 5-1 loss to the Cubs on Thursday night at Citi Field.


Wright feels good, starts baseball activities

David Wright never progressed to this stage during Spring Training, still battling back and shoulder issues that have kept him out of Major League games since May 2016. He did briefly go on Minor League rehab assignment last summer, before renewed shoulder pain forced him to shut it down.


Wheeler looking to help pin down Cubs

Injuries to Noah Syndergaard and Steven Matz have only heightened the importance of right-hander Zack Wheeler, who will start at 7:10 p.m. ET on Friday against the Cubs at Citi Field. Owner of a 6.43 ERA in May, Wheeler will look to start fresh in June opposite righty Tyler Chatwood.

How does the national gun debate impact New York City?

New Yorkers Under the Gun Public Forum June 7
How does the national gun debate impact New York City?

New York City has tough gun laws, but how safe are we?

Can we stay on the cutting edge of gun control? How can the city’s policies adapt to the evolving threat of gun violence? The city has seen incredible reductions in gun violence, but moves toward “concealed carry reciprocity” threaten to undermine those laws, and dozens of young lives are still claimed by gun violence each year—many of them the result of a thriving black-market traffic in illegal firearms.

How can New York respond to the legal changes underway elsewhere? How can New Yorkers address the gun violence that still endangers their safety?

Please join City Limits and The Crime Report for a public forum on June 7, 2018 (4pm-6 pm) at John Jay College of Criminal Justice to explore these and other questions with invited experts from academia, advocacy groups and law enforcement. Space is limited, so please Register HERE now!


Newly called up, Peterson makes debut in ATL

When the call to the bullpen came for Tim Peterson during the Mets' win over the Braves on Wednesday night, he thought it was happening all too soon. "I wasn't expecting a call that quick," Peterson said. "I guess I had to get ready pretty quick out there." And he did just that in his Major League debut, relieving Jason Vargas at the start of the sixth inning.


Alonso collects three hits for Binghamton

Here's MLB Pipeline's roundup of the top prospect performances in the Minor Leagues on Wednesday.


Pressed into early service, Vargas delivers gem

Jason Vargas was not originally scheduled to get the start on Wednesday against the Braves at SunTrust Park. But in the finale of the four-game series, a 4-1 Mets win, Vargas -- pitching in place of the injured Noah Syndergaard -- recorded a start that Thor himself would have envied. Vargas' counterpart, Julio Teheran, got little support, and took the loss after the Mets scored on him for the first time since 2017.


Draft of 1986 didn't go Mets' way

The history of Major League Baseball's Draft is littered with players whose careers and lives might have turned out differently if not for seemingly minor twists of fate. For the Mets, that was perhaps no truer than in 1986.


Lugo faces Cubs in first start of 2018

Seth Lugo, who recorded 17 consecutive scoreless innings out of the bullpen, opposes Jose Quintana on Thursday at 7:10 p.m. ET in the opener of a weekend series against the Cubs at Citi Field.


Matz has strained finger; no DL stint needed

The Mets needed a little good news on Wednesday, and it came in the form of Steven Matz. Matz underwent an MRI earlier in the day, and manager Mickey Callaway said that although Matz's left middle finger is slightly strained, the injury will not require Matz to be placed on the disabled list.


Mets hire first female PA announcer

And also Colin Cosell, Howard Cosell's grandson.


Mets call-up Baumann, Peterson, Copeland

The New York Mets today announced that the club has recalled LHP Buddy Baumann, selected the contract of RHP Tim Peterson from Las Vegas (AAA) of the Pacific Coast League and selected the contract of RHP Scott Copeland from Binghamton (AA) of the Eastern League.

Bullpen lets Mets down again after Matz injury

It was a little bit of deja vu for the Mets on Tuesday night at SunTrust Park, as they were forced to relive another dramatic walk-off moment from the Braves when Johan Camargo hit a walk-off home run in the ninth inning to give Atlanta a 7-6 win.


Cespedes debuts some homemade goggles

The newest trend in fashion.


Matz exits with left middle finger discomfort

Mets left-hander Steven Matz exited Tuesday night's 7-6 loss to the Braves at SunTrust Park in the bottom of the fourth inning with discomfort in the middle finger of his left hand. X-rays taken during the game were negative.


Cabrera logs 8th career multi-homer game

For the second time this season, and the eighth time in his career, Asdrubal Cabrera hit multiple home runs in one game.


Matz exits in 4th with apparent left finger injury

Mets left-hander Steven Matz exited Tuesday night's game against the Braves at SunTrust Park in the bottom of the fourth inning with an apparent injury to a finger on his pitching hand.


Vargas slides up to start Braves finale

Noah Syndergaard was slated to oppose Julio Teheran and the Braves on Wednesday night at 7:35 p.m. ET to close out the Mets' four-game set at SunTrust Park. However, Jason Vargas will take over for Syndergaard, who was put on the 10-day DL after an MRI scan on Tuesday exposed a strained ligament in Syndergaard's right index finger. Vargas, who was initially slated to start the Mets' series opener with the Cubs on Thursday, allowed six runs over 4 2/3 innings to Atlanta at Citi Field on May 3.


Syndergaard goes on DL with finger injury

Mets ace starter Noah Syndergaard was placed on the 10-day disabled list on Tuesday, retroactive to Saturday, with a strained ligament in his right index finger. An MRI performed at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York on Tuesday revealed the ligament strain.


BREAKING: Syndergaard goes on DL

The Mets have placed right-hander Noah Syndergaard on the 10-day disabled list, retroactive to Saturday, after an MRI revealed a strained ligament in his right index finger.


Second Annual Summit on Latin@s in New York City (SOL NYC)

On June 1st, the Center for Puerto Rican Studies (Hunter College- CUNY), the CUNY Dominican Studies Institute, the Jaime Lucero Mexican Studies Institute at CUNY, the Hispanic Federation, and the Council of the City of New York will join together in hosting the Second Annual Summit on New York City’s Latino communities to examine the challenges and opportunities facing the City’s Latinos, assess policy priorities, and develop an action agenda for today and tomorrow.


Lefty Matz looks to wrap up stellar month

Lefty Steven Matz, who has a 2.57 ERA in May, will face the Braves for the first time this season when the series continues tonight. Atlanta will send righty Anibal Sanchez to the mound. First pitch is scheduled for 7:35 p.m. ET.


Mets wait out rain, rally to split twin bill

After dropping the opener and sitting through a two-hour, 57-minute rain delay, the Mets rallied to split Monday's doubleheader with an 8-5 win over the Braves at SunTrust Park. Luis Guillorme delivered the go-ahead hit in the seventh, and Amed Rosario had three RBIs as New York snapped a four-game losing streak.


Conlon to start Game 2 of twin bill

After waiting to see how their pitching would be used in Game 1, the Mets announced they will turn to left-hander P.J. Conlon for Game 2 of the Memorial Day twin bill. The Braves will send veteran righty Brandon McCarthy to the mound. First pitch is scheduled for 7:10 ET.


deGrom, Mesoraco's heroics spoiled on walk-off

The Mets' bullpen wasted another quality start from Jacob deGrom and a late go-ahead homer from Devin Mesoraco as Seth Lugo served up a two-run walk-off homer to Braves pinch-hitter Charlie Culberson to drop Game 1 of Monday's doubleheader, 4-3, at SunTrust Park.


Mets place Flores, Ramos on DL; Plawecki back

The Mets made a slew of roster moves before their twin bill against the Braves on Monday.


Mets take early lead, but can't hold off hot Crew

As the season has worn on and with Memorial Day marking the unofficial start of summer, the Mets' pitching issues have not been resolved in the way the team hoped. Instead, those warts have only grown, tangling the Mets' plans and darkening their future. Their starting pitchers have been mostly inconsistent, as Zack Wheeler was Sunday at Miller Park while allowing four runs in six innings in an 8-6 loss to the Brewers -- the Mets' third straight.


Ramos to get MRI on shoulder, could land on DL

The roots of AJ Ramos' struggles -- eight baserunners allowed in his past three outings, spanning 1 2/3 innings -- may be medical in nature. The team on Sunday sent Ramos back to New York for an examination of his right shoulder. A stint on the disabled list could follow, pending the outcome of an MRI.


In '18 Draft, Mets have highest pick since 2004

For a team built extensively through the trade and free-agent markets, the Mets, like all clubs, remain dependent on the Draft. Jacob deGrom came from the Draft. Michael Conforto came from the Draft. Brandon Nimmo came from the Draft. The Mets' chances to compete this year, and in future years, hinge largely upon players they've taken in the Draft. It is with that in mind that the Mets will tackle this year's event, keen to choose wisely with their highest selection -- sixth overall -- since 2004.


Mets open series in Atlanta with doubleheader

Jacob deGrom, who has allowed one run in his last 33 1/3 innings, will put his early NL Cy Young Award credentials on the line when he takes on lefty Max Fried in Game 1 of a Memorial Day split doubleheader Monday in Atlanta. First pitch is scheduled for 1:10 p.m. ET. .... The Mets haven't announced a starter for the 7:10 p.m. ET Game 2, though they are considering using an "opener" -- either Seth Lugo or Robert Gsellman -- to record at least the first three outs. After that, the Mets could turn either to P.J. Conlon or a series of relievers. Right-hander Brandon McCarthy will start for the Braves.


Alonso homers in second straight game

Here's MLB Pipeline's roundup of the top prospect performances in the Minor Leagues on Saturday.


Vargas, Ramos struggle again in loss to Crew

For a team built around pitching, the Mets find themselves, a little more than one-third of the way through this season, with precious few pitchers they can trust.


Wheeler eyes back-to-back quality starts

For the past month, Zack Wheeler has alternated good starts with bad ones. He'll look to put two straight in the good column when he starts the Mets' 2:10 p.m. ET series finale on Sunday at Miller Park, pitching opposite Milwaukee right-hander Jhoulys Chacin. Last time out, Wheeler struck out nine over six innings against the Marlins, allowing one earned run.


Ramos falters again as Mets fall in extras

AJ Ramos' final pitch Friday never came close to its target, bouncing in front of home plate, skipping off catcher Devin Mesoraco's glove and careening to the backstop. By the time the ball rolled to a stop in the nearby grass, it had been forgotten. Eric Sogard was jogging home with the winning run of the Brewers' 4-3 win over the Mets, which Ramos forced in with a bases-loaded walk in the 10th.


Prospect Alonso hits 13th homer

Here's MLB Pipeline's roundup of the top prospect performances in the Minor Leagues on Friday.


Mets fall in extras despite solid start from Thor

The Mets' inability to build significant momentum since mid-May has found roots in many places, from a fringy offense to an inconsistent rotation to a shaky back end of the bullpen. But perhaps no factor has provided more frustration than their struggles behind Jacob deGrom and Noah Syndergaard. In dropping a 4-3 game to the Brewers on Friday when AJ Ramos issued a bases-loaded walk to Travis Shaw in the 10th, the Mets fell to 12-9 in games that their best two pitchers started.


Nimmo robs Yelich with terrific diving catch

Left fielder Brandon Nimmo made a diving catch to rob Christian Yelich of a hit in the bottom of the first on Friday at Miller Park. With an 18-percent catch probability, according to Statcast&#8482; data, it was a five-star grab.


Vargas looks to keep rolling in Milwaukee

Much improved in his last outing, left-hander Jason Vargas will look to solidify his rotation standing when he returns to the mound Saturday at Miller Park. After going 0-3 with a 13.86 ERA in his first three starts with the Mets, Vargas delivered five shutout innings last time out. He'll oppose right-handed changeup artist Chase Anderson in the 4:10 p.m. ET game.


Cespedes adds running to baseball activities

Slow to return from a strained right hip flexor, Yoenis Cespedes made significant progress Friday when he began a running progression on the field at Miller Park. Previously, Cespedes had been limited to hitting and throwing, without attempting to run on his injured leg.
