Mets Merized Online:
Sandy Alderson told reporters at Citi Field that while they are still exploring different scenarios on the trade market, they can no longer consider themselves buyers anymore.
Alderson said the change in direction is due to the team’s poor performance since the All-Star Break.
Mike Kerwick: Mets are no longer buyers, per Sandy, but that doesn’t mean they are sellers either. They are “exploring options.”
Anthony DiComo: Sandy Alderson sure sounds like a man who’s standing pat (or close to it) at the Trade Deadline.
Brian Costa: Doesn’t sound like Mets are going to be buyers or sellers at this point. As Alderson said today, a lot has changed in a week.
Adam Rubin: Sandy Alderson all but suggests he’s not trading players in final year of contract unless there’s some 2012-13 benefit. (Hairston/Byrdak)
Terry Collins: Are you hosing me? (when told Snooki was in the dugout)
This has been the worst kept secret of the season.

Mets News and Notes:
Mike Baxter's rehab tour, now in Day 9, is moving to Triple-A Buffalo. That suggests Baxter may be ready to be activated from the disabled list this weekend, when the Mets visit Arizona.
Baxter suffered a displaced right collarbone and fractured rib cartilage on the catch that preserved Johan Santana's no-hit bid on June 1.

The Charlotte Knights beat the Buffalo Bisons last night by a score of 11-0. Matt Harvey took the mound looking to impress the big league club with a solid performance. Instead, Harvey had a very rough night. Harvey was decent early on, allowing only a first-inning...

Embrace the horror my friends. Nothing we do now will change anything. The time to strike was when the Mets were winning and they needed a general manager who could sustain that glorious run when the Mets never spent a day under ,500 and staked a solid claim on the National League Wild Card. You snooze, you lose. Sandman fell asleep at the...

They fought as they always do, but this time a ninth-inning rally to tie the game prevent an inevitable loss, or the humbling reality that came along with the defeat. The New York Mets, a feel-good, scrappy story throughout the first half, have fallen below .500 for the first time all season. The players were left grasping for answers after Sunday's 8-3, 12-inning loss to...
I think it’s safe to say the Dog Days have arrived – that all-too-familiar time when one day runs into the next and it seems like no one has any energy. People get edgier this time of year, tempers shorten and frustration lengthens. If you’re a fan of the Mets, the Dog Days started just before the All-Star Game. Talk about being edgy and frustrated…

NEW YORK -- One hit came after the other in the top of the 10th inning for Washington, suddenly leaving the New York Mets so far from a win it became hard to see how close they once had been. Just like the defeats that have piled up recently, Monday night's 8-2 loss to the Washington Nationals left the Mets trying to recognize the team that once threatened to challenge Washington...
The Mets look to return to the win column today as they take on the Dodgers for game three of the series. Yesterday’s game was rather “blah” so no point in recapping it. Anyway, Niese gets the start today as he takes on Nathan Eovaldi of the Dodgers:
Niese is 7-4 on the season with a 3.58 ERA over 18 starts and 110.2 innings of work. Jon rebounded really nicely in his last...
