Mets News and Notes: Dickey, Davis, Expected Losses, Mets Road Trip, Gee, Tejada, Chipper, Cyclones, Prospects, Suspension


Mets News and Notes:

R.A. Dickey notched his 18th win, which is now tied with Washington's Gio Gonzalez for the major league lead, and Ike Davis belted a three-homer as the Mets beat the St. Louis Cardinals, 6-2, Wednesday afternoon at Busch Stadium.

Dickey is now two wins shy of becoming the Mets' first 20-game winner since Frank Viola in 1990.

Ike Davis' 26 homers are tied for fifth most in franchise history by a first baseman, trailing only Carlos Delgado (38 in 2008 and 2006), Dave Kingman (37 in 1982) and Eddie Murray (27 in 1993). Mo Vaughn also had 26, in 2002.

Of Davis' 26 homers, a National League-high 19 have come on the road. San Diego's Chase Headley and Miami's Giancarlo Stanton, who both play in spacious home ballparks, are tied for second in the league in road homers with 17 apiece.

The Mets are expected to lose $23 million this season, Josh Kosman reports in the Post. Sandy Alderson has identified last year's loss as $60 million, but the Mets' payroll was slashed roughly $50 million during the past offseason, helping to close that deficit despite lower attendance in 2012.

The Mets completed their road trip to Philadelphia, Miami and St. Louis with a 6-3 record. They trail Philadelphia (66-71) by a game for third place in the division, but the Mets (65-72) have opened a five-game lead on the Marlins (60-77) for fourth place.


No surprise, but Terry Collins told reporters in St. Louis that Dillon Gee is assured a rotation spot next season assuming he is healthy, which is expected to be the case following surgery to repair a damaged artery.

Mets Suspend Bullpen Catcher


The Mets have announced resolution on a story from two days ago, suspending bullpen catcher Eric Langill. Langill was arrested and charged with DUI in Port St. Lucie on Sunday night after a one-car accident.

Here is the team's statement:

“We met with Eric Langill this morning. He was contrite and very apologetic about Sunday night's incident. We informed Eric that he will be suspended without pay for seven days and will be required to seek counseling through the Employee Assistance Program.”
