Tejada Passes Concussion Tests, Collins Says He Should Be Fine

Ruben Tejada was hit in the head with a 94 mph fastball from Mariners pitcher Taijuan Walker during Wednesday’s game. It was a scary moment in the game as Terry Collins and the Mets trainer rushed onto the field. Tejada left the game under his own power, and was replaced by Eric Campbell who pinch ran and played the remainder of the game at SS. The good news is that Tejada passed...

Jacob deGrom: Mets 2014 Rookie of The Year?

Today’s buzz is all about Jacob deGrom, and thanks to manager Terry Collins, the question becomes can the 25-year old righthander come from behind and cop this year’s Rookie of the Year award. “He’s... [[ This is a content summary only. Visit my website for full links, other content, and more! ]]

DeGrom Will Remain In The Rotation

Right-hander Jacob deGrom will not be heading to the bullpen after the All star break as manager Terry Collins suggested on Saturday. “We’re not going to take Jacob deGrom out of the rotation,” Collins said after the game on Sunday. “I say that now, but we might look up in a month where he is starting to run out of gas a little bit, where we have to make a decision. He...

Mets Minors: Wilmer Flores finds his power stroke

I was asked over the weekend, “Should the Mets fire Terry Collins?”  My answer, “Yes.” My reason is not what most people might say.  Collins is guilty of one solitary cardinal sin, in my eyes.  He insisted on playing Ruben Tejada over Wilmer Flores.  “But Flores wasn’t hitting!” Yes, as a pinch hitter/spot starter, he was hitting .225 which isn’t great.  Tejada...

Dueling Philosophies: Collins Says Mets Won’t Give Up Pieces To Help Other Teams

Sometimes I wonder if Terry Collins and the front office are on the same page. More often than not, it seems the Mets skipper operates in his own parallel universe doing his own thing, while the rest of the organization carries on without him in lockstep with Sandy Alderson’s agenda and plan for the future. It’s amazing to me that Collins was extended by Alderson last offseason...

What could Terry Collins do differently?

The Mets are now ten games out of first place as they begin an 11 game home stand that leads into the All-Star break.  The last road trip through Pittsburgh and Atlanta was a “gut-punch” to a team that was striving so hard to get over a trend of losing close games.  The Mets lost six of seven, by a total of eleven runs, continuing their ineptness at situational hitting thus...

Collins’ Hot-Hand Mentality Is Sending Mixed Messages To His Players

It was interesting to hear Gary Apple and Bobby Ojeda discuss one of the things  I wrote about over the weekend, which was how this six-outfielder configuration was doomed to failure. Apple leads it off asking Ojeda, “We have to talk about Chris Young who suddenly got hot and had that two home run game and then followed it up with another home run game and then Terry Collins had...

Should Mets Manager Terry Collins Be On The Hot Seat?

Terry Collins Mets – Photo Credit: Slgckgc (Flickr Creative Commons) Before the New York Mets began their current home stand, General Manager Sandy Alderson told reporters that manager Terry Collins’ job was safe, despite increasing media speculation to the contrary. “Sometimes you have to address topics you wouldn’t otherwise because of all of the noise that surrounds the...

#***********: Collins Gets Upset As Hudgens Fired and Valverde Released

On Monday afternoon the Mets announced that pitcher Jose Valverde after giving up four runs in a loss to the Pirates was released and that hitting coach Dave Hudgens was fired. Mike Puma of the New York Post asked Terry Collins about whether he was worried that the firing of Hudgens could mean that Collins is next.

Stache Staff Roundtable: Should Terry Collins Be Fired?

The 2014 Mets are 16-15 so far this season and closer to first place than they have been this late in a season since 2010. You would think that after all the doom and gloom that surrounded the team coming into the year and after being swept by the Nationals to begin the year, things would be looking good considering where the Mets are today. Except that you would be only partially...
