Does Sandy Alderson really want Terry Collins to succeed?

As someone who has read more than two dozen books on the Kennedy Assassination it could be said that I am somewhat disposed to seeing conspiracies even where they don’t exist. One of the other sports teams I follow is the New York Jets (yes, I can really pick them). For those not familiar with their recent history here’s a quick overview. A few years ago the team’s owner...

Why Terry Collins didn't let Jacob deGrom go the distance in gem

New York Mets pitcher Jacob deGrom was three outs away from a potential one-hit gem that would have served as the first complete game shutout of his career. Only, manager Terry Collins pulled him out of the game after the eighth inning, denying him a shot to finish his masterpiece and potentially retire the remaining three batters of the game to swell his total to 26 consecutive...

Collins Made Right Call To Pull De Grom

It would have been nice to see Jacob deGrom finish today’s start for the Mets, but manager Terry Collins‘ decision to pull him was totally reasonable. At the beginning of the season Collins said deGrom and Matt Harvey would be watched carefully in terms of pitch counts and monitoring, which fell into line his decision to not let him come out for the ninth. DEGROM: Pulled out...

Is Panic In The Mets’ DNA?

Sometimes, Mets manager Terry Collins sounds like a man who is trying to convince himself of something he’s not sure of, when he said, or vowed, his team would not panic. As somebody who has been in on hundreds of such press briefings, I know why the topic of panic was raised. Believe me, it’s not because it’s New York and the media is prying. The question would be the same...

'No panic,' 'no sense of urgency' in Mets' clubhouse despite slide

In 10 days, the aura surrounding the New York Mets has drastically changed, at least in the eyes of fans and the media. On May 10, Bartolo Colón led the Mets to a 7-4 victory over the Phillies, and New York was atop the NL East with a sizzling 20-11 start to the season. Ten days later, Colón was starting for the Mets again, only this time the veteran pitcher was knocked around...

Collins Makes History Batting His Top HR Hitter Ninth

Ronald Blum of the Associated Press reports that when Terry Collins made the decision to bat Wilmer Flores ninth in the batting order on Saturday versus the Milwaukee Brewers, he did something that hasn’t been done in nearly half a century. For the first time since April 30, 1967, the Mets were batting their top home-run hitter ninth in the order. Don Cardwell, New York’s...

Collins Should Look In The Mirror Before Pointing Fingers At Players

It was a forgetful time in Chicago for the Mets after losing to the Cubs again on Thursday afternoon to get swept in a 4 game series. After losing the night before on a bases loaded walk, Thursday was just as excruciating maybe more. The Mets blew a 5-1 lead and gave up the winning run on a passed ball off Anthony Recker‘s glove. “I didn’t get the good part of the glove on...

Collins Hoping deGrom Can Fight Through Struggles

2014 Rookie of the Year Jacob deGrom struggled again for the third time in his last four starts on Monday. From the onset, he gave up back to back homeruns to Kris Bryant and Anthony Rizzo in the 1st inning and although he only gave up one run the rest of the way, he really never got into a real rhythm. He’s now 3-4 with a 3.46 ERA. One reason for his struggles on Monday was his...

Travis d’Arnaud To Be Examined On Tuesday

According to Mets manager Terry Collins, starting catcher Travis d’Arnaud – who was placed on the DL about a month ago after fracturing the metacarpal bone in his right hand on a HBP – is scheduled to meet with team doctors for an examination on Tuesday. It will take place at the Hospital for Special Surgery in Manhattan. If all goes well, d’Arnaud will have the soft cast...

Mets Card of the Week: 2015 Terry Collins

2015 TOPPS HERITAGE TERRY COLLINS Nostalgia is a distorting lens. Ralph the ice-cream man used to stop in front of my house every day from late spring to early fall, ringing his bells in four-beat measures that made me dash out my front door and sail over the concrete porch steps. I’d scrape together my available nickels and dimes for a couple of packs of baseball cards, maybe...
