The dust has settled, and the New York Mets are in the playoffs and will face the Los Angeles Dodgers sans home-field advantage beginning Friday, October 9. With the postseason beginning next week, Terry Collins addressed a number of topics regarding the NLDS at his final regular season post-game press conference. Here are some of […]
According to manager Terry Collins, there’s still a chance that Steven Matz could pitch in Game 4 of the NLDS. Speaking to reporters at Citi Field this morning, Collins said Matz met with doctors and received an injection in his upper back to try and relax the muscle spasms that have shelved him this past week. […]
On July 24th the National League standings looked like this: As you can see, the Mets were just one game over .500 trailing the Nationals by three games and they were not in a very good position to make a run at a Wild Card berth since the Pirates, Cubs, and Giants had a good leg up on them. That July date is an important one because it is when the talent infusion started with the...
For much of this season, the Mets pointed to this weekend’s series against the Nationals as critical to getting into the playoffs. Nobody thought it might be essential to get their heads screwed on straight. After mauling Cincinnati in four games to clinch the NL East, the Mets are scrambling to regain their sharpness after being swept in three games by the Phillies. COLLINS:...
With the Mets just one out away from clinching their first division title in nine years, manager Terry Collins couldn’t help but shed some tears in the dugout as he looked on. These tears, unlike Wilmer Flores’ back in late July, were tears of joy. Sure, it’s been a long wait for the Mets and […]

Harvey, apparently feeling badly about the way the entire innings limit controversy unfolded, took it upon himself to tell manager Terry Collins...
Who here is kind of afraid of the lineups that Terry Collins is going to trot out against the Dodgers in the National League Division Series? That’s a general question, but more specifically applies to the rotation that the Dodgers will be throwing out against the Mets. The team from Los Angeles will have a rotation with three left-handers in Clayton Kershaw, Alex Wood, and...
After Tuesday night’s 6-2 loss to the Atlanta Braves, manager Terry Collins told reporters that the team has looked “tight” and “hit a wall” during their current homestand which has seen the team go 3-5. It will be the Mets’ first losing homestand of this season where they’ve played remarkably well at Citi Field. “Coming […]
On Sunday, Terry Collins pulled Matt Harvey after five innings of one hit, scoreless baseball. This was per the plan that all of the parties agreed to over the weekend. New York’s bullpen then imploded after Harvey left the game, allowing 11 runs (seven earned) over four innings in relief of Harvey as the Mets eventually fell 11-2 to the Yankees. Before Monday’s game with the...
