June 21, 2013 Every time I want to complain about this guy, he turns around and does something great. During Zach Wheeler's first game against the Braves (19 June 13), Recker committed a throwing error and looked bad in his first couple of trips to the plate. Then he goes and slugs a two-run homer and adds a single for good measure late in the contest.
Recker must practice Yogi Berra's philosophy when it comes to achieving positive results: "It ain't over 'til it's over."
June 30, 2013 He has a lower ERA than Robert Carson.
April 1, 2014 I like Recker I lot. He's clutch. There were a few times at different points last season that I thought he should be the Mets' starting catcher.
Tonight, on a whim, I looked up the 2013 game logs for Recker, John Buck, and Travis D'Arnaud. The Mets record in Recker's appearances: 27- 23 / in Starts: 20-14. The Mets record in Buck's appearances: 44-66 / in Starts: 42-60. The Mets record in D'Arnaud's appearances: 11-20 / in Starts: 11-19.
