Mets Stay With Niese; Maybe A Good Thing Afterall

My reasoning is the Washington game is more important to the Mets’ immediate pennant pursuit than...

Mets Should Skip Niese Before Syndergaard

It’s now three stinkers in a row for Jon Niese, and if Mets manager Terry Collins is considering skidding Noah Syndergaard this weekend, perhaps the smarter play would be to bypass the veteran left-hander instead. NIESE: Next start should be skipped. (AP) Niese was rocked in his second straight start by the Phillies Tuesday night, giving up six runs on seven hits in five innings...

Niese Continues His Solid Season In Mets 4-2 Victory Over Rockies

Jon Niese turned in another strong performance last night as he allowed just two runs while striking out five batters in seven innings.

Jon Niese, like most Mets, has little trade value

It’s a rare day when I haven’t visited MLB Trade Rumors on more than one occasion. I must be a masochist because my visits there are mostly prompted by interest in what the Mets are doing. And you all know already what the Mets are doing on the trade front: nothing, not even intriguing talk. It seems that other teams mention making a player or two available and like sharks smelling...

Jon Niese: Not on the DL and pitching great

From all indications, the Mets spent a fair amount of time trying to trade a veteran starting pitcher this past offseason. The response from other teams was either low-ball offers or no offers at all, as they tried to pry loose Noah Syndergaard, instead. You can’t blame a team for trying to get Syndergaard.
