Jeremy Hefner allowed four runs (three earned) on seven hits in six innings of Wednesday's loss to the Nats. He struck out three and walked one. The rookie righty managed to settle down after serving up a three-run bomb to Adam LaRoche in the first. With Miguel Batista and Chris Young both back in the Mets rotation, it's unclear if Hefner will be called on to make another start. Either way, he's off the NL-only league radar

Hefner pitched 1.1 innings of relief for the Mets today vs. the Phillies at sweltering Citi Field in NYC....unfortunately for Jeremy...he got lit up for 5 hits and 3 runs and the last place Phils broke their six game losing streak with a 9-2 win in the 95 degree heat.....TheEagleman thinks that the Mets losing is never a bad thing...... ;-)

Kicking TheEagleman while he's down, eh Irish?....lol.....it's been a tough year hear in Philly.....we are pretty much done for 2012....changes have to be made for 2013....so I will suck it up and root for Hefner except when he's pitching vs. my boys.....how is your boy doing?.... :nerd:

Not too bad lately.....they've moved him from the rotation to the pen. He has added a splitter, apparently they are very happy with that. Time will tell....He is very happy with the pitch. I was just talking to him yesterday via Tango and I brought up Chappy, we both hope that he is able to take it to the next level! I would love for the Yanks to get Cole Hammel, but I think they want to stay under the 189 cap to avoid the lux tax. I go to Mets games because it's easier to get a ticket! hahaha! Take care...keep in touch!

Cole Hamels to the Yankees?....I guess it's possible but the Dodgers are a more likely destination when he hits the free agent market in November....he's a west coast kid.....the Phillies are still trying to cut a deal but rumors are he and his agent want at least 6 maybe 7 seasons at $25 mill per.....you do the math....that's a lot of coin......I would NEVER give a pitcher that many years......if the Phils can't sign him and feel there is little chance to do so after the season....look for them to deal Hamels for prospects by the July 31 deadline.....they can't just let him walk and take a draft pick.......can they?...... :nerd:

Not what you want to see:

RT @ESPNStatsInfo: Jeremy Hefner is the 1st Mets starting pitcher to allow at least 6 earned runs without recording a single out in franchise history.

TheEagleman watched the first inning of this game while on vacation at the Jersey Shore....Hefner faced seven batters and gave up 6 singles and a walk....it sounds awful but only two balls were hit hard...four of the singles were flairs or bloops that fell in between the outfielders....still, it was a tough night for the ORU alum and the Mets....the Phillies went on to beat the stinkin' Mets by 16-1..... :clap:

Hefner starts this Friday night here in Philadelphia vs. the Phillies.....hate to see a fellow ORU alum take it on the chin but hoping that the sight of Jeremy will help the Phils break out of a season long batting slump..... :nerd:

Hefner out pitched Cole Hamels (now 2-11) tonight and gets his 2nd win of the season...nice job by the ex-ORU pitcher as he went 6 innings giving up just two earned runs in the 4-3 Mets victory....unfortunately, the Phillies stink this season....lots of changes are needed...the Mets are even worse...... :nerd:

Tough night for Jeremy tonight at Citi Field in NYC.....TheEagleman had mixed emotions (sort of) as he watched the Phillies rough up Hefner for 8 runs in 2+ innings in a 13-8 Philadelphia victory.....Hef was 4-6 with a 3.33 ERA coming into the game but his ERA had been a gaudy 1.71 over the past month....those numbers won't be looking so good in the stats tomorrow..... :nerd:

Jeremy hasn't pitched well since the All Star Break....he's 0-2 with an ERA over 5.50.....overall for the season Hefner is 4-8 and the ERA is at 4.34....his WHIP is 1.29.......he only went 5 innings giving up 4 runs and 8 hits in last night's loss at Arizona.... :|

Bad news for Jeremy Hefner....looks like his recent arm problems are going to require Tommy John surgery...TheEagleman heard on the Phillies-Mets broadcast last night that Hefner has chosen to go the surgery route while ace Matt Harvey is still considering non-surgical options....if Jeremy has the surgery then he is likely done for most if not all of the  2014 season..... :sweat:  :sweat:
