Kirk Nieuwenhuis back with Mets after circuitous route

Outfielder Kirk Nieuwenhuis has traveled across the country this season, but he's right back where he started: with the New York Mets. Nieuwenhuis was recalled by the Mets on Monday, a few weeks after the club claimed him off waivers from the Los Angeles Angels. The 27-year-old is no stranger to New York. He played the last four seasons with the Mets before being traded to the Angels...

Collins expecting Mejia to address Mets upon return

The New York Mets have assured they will accept reliever Jenrry Mejia with open arms when he returns from his 80-game PED suspension, but manager Terry Collins finds it important that Mejia reach out to his teammates upon his arrival on Tuesday. "I think it's important for him to just basically say we're moving forward, I'm helping to move forward," Collins said, per "He...

Mets' deGrom 'really honored' to be named to first All-Star team

Jacob deGrom was selected Monday for the first of what will likely be many All-Star appearances for the New York Mets righty. The 2014 National League Rookie of the Year was very grateful to have been voted onto the team by his peers. "It's been unbelievable," deGrom said. "I would have never imagined it. I'm just thankful for the opportunity that I've had. I just found out, and...

Collins Lays Down Law With Harvey

The other day I suggested the Mets’ Matt Harvey “just shut up and pitch.” Evidently, manager Terry Collins has similar thoughts, but was less colorful than me. Anyway, the bottom line is Collins and GM Sandy Alderson want to do the right thing with Harvey and the other starters to protect their arms. Of course, had Alderson developed a definitive plan coming out of spring training...

Addison Russell Should Be New York Mets’ Biggest Priority Going Into Trade Deadline

The MLB trade deadline of July 31st is rapidly approaching, and with the New York Mets holding steady in second place of the NL East, they need to make a few moves before time runs out. The Mets could certainly use a relief pitcher or two, but in order to boost their chances of playing baseball in October, they need to find a replacement for shortstop Wilmer Flores. His inconsistencies...

Mets Minors: Milton Ramos and the Kingsport Mets

Rookie ball is not a league that most fans follow.  Players in this league are generally below the legal drinking age in the United States and face a minimum of 3-5 years of sustained healthy/productive play to reach the majors.  Today I will focus on the Kingsport Mets because I’ve never seen them quite this good. The Mets have known they’ve had issues with Shortstop.  Wilmer...

Wilmer Flores Comes Through For Mets In LA

Mets infielder Wilmer Flores has had an up and down 2015 season. Early in the year, Flores was struggling with his defense at shortstop, but Flores was hitting at times and as long as he hit, the Mets could deal with his defensive deficiencies. Lately he has been fielding better especially since the Mets moved him to second base, but for most of June, Flores has struggled with his...

I … I Believe In … I Believe In Steven Matz

It’s hard not to see pitching performances like we saw from Noah Syndergaard on Friday and Steven Matz on Sunday and not think that this could be the next Gooden, Darling, Fernandez, Ojeda, and Cone. But this isn’t 1988 where the Mets could have a staff five deep (which they lucked into when Cone all of a sudden went from dud to stud), and where they didn’t have to trade one...

Sandy Alderson’s outfield gambles have not paid off

For the past two offseasons, Sandy Alderson has focused on improving the outfield any way possible. The 2013 season was not a great one for the Mets, and Alderson knew his prospects were on their way to being promoted, creating a need for the Mets to make moves during the offseason, and get more offensive production from the outfield. Obviously hindsight is 20/20, but Alderson could...

Memo To Harvey: Shut Up And Pitch

New York Mets trade rumors: Chicago Cubs edition

The New York Mets and the Chicago Cubs may be done facing off on the field in 2015, but it doesn’t mean they can’t still match up. The Mets and Cubs have long been reported to be one of the best fits for a trade; the Mets have excess pitching while the Cubs have excess young infielders. On paper this is the perfect fit, especially considering the Mets’ urgent need to for a...

Gut Reaction: Dodgers 4, Mets 3 (7/4/15)

“Saturday. In the park. I think it was the Fourth of July.” That blissful song was in my head as I watched the Mets play at Dodgers Stadium a few hours ago. I wasn’t expecting much. I figured since Matt Harvey and Zach Grienke were pitching it would be a light offensive affair, and for the most part it was. Harvey didn’t give up a tremendous amount of hard hit balls. He did...

Collins Gets Confidence Vote; Pressure Squarely On Alderson Now

Traditionally, that’s how these things go. ALDERSON: Spares Collins for now. (AP) What winning Friday accomplished was give the Mets a winning record (41-40) at the halfway point,...

The New York Mets…there’s nothing to say anymore

Speechless. Just speechless. The New York Mets are simply beyond pathetic. This team can’t hit. This team can’t score runs. The only hope for this team are the pitchers, who conveniently are the ones providing what little offense this team actually has. This is absolutely brutal to watch. For nearly ten years, fans have been trying to advise the team as best they can in regards...
