Mets 6 – Indians 4 June 17, 2010

June 16, 2010 - Cleveland, OHIO, UNITED STATES - epa02206096 Jose Reyes of the New York Mets tosses his glove in the air during the eighth inning against the Cleveland Indians in their game at Progressive Field in Cleveland, Ohio, USA, 16 June 2010. The Mets defeated the Indians 8-4.

The Mets got another quality start from R.A. Dickey who went 6 innings and gave up 3 runs (2 earned). He went to 5-0 with his fifth consecutive win. He’s had quite a few baserunners with a 1.41 WHIP but really seems to bear down and get out of trouble keeping his ERA at 2.82.

The offense was rocking again with 14 hits and 2 walks. They scored 3 runs in the first inning and were off and running. Jose Reyes had a big game going 3 for 5 with 2 runs, 1 RBI, 1 double, and 1 triple. He also made a couple of really nice plays in the field. He looks like the old Reyes.

The Mets swept their second consecutive road series and start up three games in the Bronx tomorrow night.

Mets 8 – Indians 4 June 16, 2010

June 16, 2010 - Cleveland, OHIO, UNITED STATES - epa02206016 Jon Niese of the New York Mets delivers a pitch against the Cleveland Indians in the first inning of their game at Progressive Field in Cleveland, Ohio, USA, 16 June 2010.

The Mets won their sixth straight game… And they’re doing it on the road! Jonathon Niese got it done again for his third straight win. This didn’t compare to his last start which was a complete game 1-hitter. But it was a nice start going 7 innings and giving up 3 runs. That’s solid.

The Mets offense was clicking again with 14 hits but no walks. Angel Pagan had a big game going 3 for 5 with 1 run, 3 RBI’s, and 1 stolen base. The Mets put up 5 runs in the third inning and never looked back.

Jason Bay left the game with a quad contusion and is day to day. He ran into Andy Marte while legging out a chopper in the infield. It didn’t look too serious but Jesus Feliciano took over in left field.

The Mets go for the second straight series sweep tomorrow night.

The Mets won their fifth straight game behind Johan Santana. It was a shaky beginning for Santana giving up 3 runs in the second inning. But he settled down and ended up lasting 7 IP and giving up 4 runs.

The Mets offense was clicking again with 12 hits and 2 walks. David Wright was 3 for 5 with 3 RBI’s and has his average up to .293 now. Ike Davis was 2 for 4 with a long 2-run homer to center field.

The Indians helped them out with some ugly infield defense. Jason Donald especially was horrendous at shortstop and 2 errors. The Indians had 3 errors in the game.

Francisco Rodriguez did his best to give the game back to the Indians. He surrendered a 2-run homer in the ninth to Shelley Duncan. But he managed to squeak out of  it with a run to spare and another shaky save.

Johan Santana (4-3 2.96) vs Justin Masterson (2-5 4.74)

TV: SNY   Radio: WFAN

What to watch: The Mets look to extend their four game winning streak against another last place team in Cleveland. Santana got hit pretty hard by the Padres in his last start in New York, so he’ll be looking to get back on track. Masterson threw a complete game 2-hitter in his last start against Boston. Expect Chris Carter to be back at DH against the right-hander.

Mark DeRosa To Mets Trade Talks Confirmed

Ed Price of AOL Fanhouse has confirmation from a team official that the Mets and Cleveland Indians are in talks about sending Mark DeRosa to the Mets. Of course, nothing is official yet and trade talks happen all the time that don’t ever pan out.

The Indians are astonishingly bad this season. The only team in the majors with a worse record is the Washington Nationals. The Indians could dump the rest of DeRosa’s $5.5 million contract at this point. He’s not going to help them anyway. They’re beyond help this season.

DeRosa, born in Passaic, NJ, just turned 34 years-old in February. He easily had the biggest offensive season of his career in 2008 with the Chicago Cubs batting .285/ .376/ .481. He’s a very versitle fielder and played 32 games at shortstop in 2007.

With Jose Reyes facing a good possibility of going on the disabled list and a major question mark at first base, this would be a solid move for the Mets. I have to assume that the Indians would want either Bobbly Parnell or Jonathan Niese plus some lower level prospects. I’d hate to give one of those guys up but that’s the nature of the game.
