Collins Cautioned Not To Use Familia Due To Drop In Velocity

According to a report by Adam Rubin on ESPN New York, Terry Collins handled the eighth inning initially with Vic Black on Monday because the staff had advised Collins to stay away from Jeurys Familia. “I talked to the pitching guys today and they said, ‘Listen, if you can give him a night, give him a night, because he can use it,’” Collins said. “If you think about it...

Bigger Than Big

I think its cute … y’know, the motivation tactics that Terry Collins has resorted to. We as Mets fans have been clamoring for meaningful pennant race type games. This series against the Braves hardly counts, even though the Braves are in first place and the series is four games long. The math says that ten games out in the standings minus the four that the Mets could theoretically...

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: “We Miss David’s Bat In The Lineup”

Terry Collins acknowledged to reporters after the Mets 3-1 loss to the Braves on Wednesday night at Turner Field, that the team really wishes their Captain was available to play. “Obviously we miss David [Wright],” Collins said. “We miss David’s bat in the lineup. There’s no doubt. It kind of spreads out things a little differently.” David Wright hasn’t seen action...

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...
