METS RUMORS & GOSSIP

New York Mets: as team gets healthier what’s the next move?

The New York Mets have been decimated by injuries for most of this season so far. Despite the losses of some of the most important members of the team, the Mets have managed to put together a solid season, with a record of 24-18 and only half a game out of first place in the division despite an offense that goes through lengthy cold spells. Though the absences have been lengthy...

Lucas Duda, Everyday Player

Over the last six months, Lucas Duda has probably heard a lot about last season’s .180 batting average against left-handers. A quick search reveals more than half a million hits for “Lucas Duda .180” and all the results in the first five pages were relevant. Fortunately for Duda, that unsightly .180 batting average in just […]

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...

Mets Facing Critical Juncture To Season

Every season has its critical juncture and for the Mets it is now after Bartolo Colon‘s 41-year-old arm was mauled tonight by major league’s best team in St. Louis. The Mets’ 11-game winning streak and eight-game lead over Washington has faded from euphoria to the cusp of panic after Colon was ripped. We’ve seen hot streaks from the Mets morph into inescapable slides before...

Bartolo Colon reached base on an infield chopper

Bartolo Colon is a notoriously terrible (yet amusing) hitter. And this at bat resulted in a notoriously terrible swing from Colon. Yet, the stars aligned on this chopper off the plate. Yadier Molina couldn’t field it cleanly. Colon reached base safely. The angels began to sing. A Bartolo Colon infield single would melt the Internet, but alas, this play went down as an error on...

Should the Mets trade Jon Niese over Dillon Gee?

Throughout this career, Jon Niese has been nothing short of an effective left-handed pitcher for the New York Mets. With a career winning percentage aournd .500, Niese currently finished only two of his eight total seasons with more losses than wins. Niese is also the only lefty in the Mets’ starting rotation, but with Steven Matz on his way up to the majors, Niese may begin...

On the Daniel Murphy infield screw-up

“I should not be by home plate, ideally,” said Murphy, who hit a two-run homer, accounting for the Mets’ only runs of the forgettable evening, and upping his team-leading RBI total to 22. “I was watching Reynolds over there. With the base open, I thought they may try that. When he broke, I broke. It was the wrong play.” Collins said: “There are times that players try...

Latest Injury Updates On Wright and d’Arnaud

It’s truly amazing how the status of David Wright‘s rehab and eventual return keeps changing from day to day. One moment his return is imminent, the next one he’s still far away. However, here’s the latest. GM Sandy Alderson told reporters before Tuesday’s game that it could be 10-14 days before David Wright returns from the disabled list. “I don’t think you can expect...

New York Mets: Nieuwenhuis’s roster spot in jeopardy

Following Monday night’s late game heroics, the Mets have announced an additional roster move. Outfielder Darrell Ceciliani will be called up from Triple-A Las Vegas. Ceciliani is a left hand hitting, defensively focused outfielder that the Mets drafted in the 2009 draft. Despite his reputation as a defense first outfielder, he’s had some offensive success at Las Vegas this season...

Mets Promote Outfielder Darrell Ceciliani From Triple-A

The New York Mets announced after Monday’s game that they will promote outfielder Darrell Ceciliani from Triple-A Las Vegas and add him to the major league roster. A corresponding move has yet to be announced but the speculation seems to lean toward the team designating Kirk Nieuwenhuis for assignment. Ceciliani, 24, is batting .336/.389/.584 in 113 at-bats for Triple-A Las Vegas...

“Pedro Martinez” Memoirs A Must Read For The Ages

You saw the animated, fearsome character in Pedro Martinez when he was on the mound for the Expos, Red Sox, Mets and Phillies. When it comes to his memoir aptly named Pedro, he doesn’t let you down either. He comes out swinging. He lets it all hang out. He didn’t want to leave the Dodgers, he didn’t want to leave the Expos after four seasons, he wanted to leave the Red Sox...

Mets Minors: When does Travis Taijeron get his chance?

I have been writing about Travis Taijeron, on and off, since 2011.  Taijeron, a former catcher, was drafted by the Mets to be a power-hitting corner outfielder.  Over his minor league career he’s managed a .878 OPS with a robust .510 SLG.  His power is a legitimate threat and so is his preponderance of strikeouts. In 417 games from Brooklyn to Las Vegas, Taijeron has struck...

Milwaukee Brewers fans were dealt a serious scare Sunday afternoon. Brewers outfielder Carlos Gomez had to be removed from Milwaukee’s matchup with the New York Mets after taking a 97-mph fastball from rookie pitcher Noah Syndergaard straight to the ear flap.

New York Mets news getting worse before it gets better

The New York Mets are scuffling. They have lost 5 straight coming off a 4 game sweep at the hands of the Chicago Cubs and a bad 7-0 loss to the Milawukee Brewers. Beyond that, the injury bug is continuing to bite, decimating an already weak lineup. And even as returns stay off in the distance, more and more players at all levels of the organization keep going down. The Mets continue...

Noah Syndergaard is as Advertised

Few MLB rookies not named Kris Bryant have had an MLB debut as anticipated as that of Noah Syndergaard.
