New York Mets: Dilson Herrera era to begin

The New York Mets have made a big move concerning their middle infield. No, Troy Tulowitzki is not coming over in a trade. Instead the Mets have opted to put Daniel Murphy on the disabled list and call up Dilson Herrera from Double-A. Murphy had missed three games battling a calf issue before the decision was made to shut him down for two weeks. Herrera was playing for Binghamton...

The Emergence of Jeurys Familia

In his first full season in the big leagues, Jeurys Familia has been outstanding to say the least. The 24 year old has established himself as a key component to the success of the Mets bullpen this season and is being thrown into the conversation of being the closer of the future for the Amazin’s. In 61 games so far in 2014, Familia has pitched to a 1.93 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and .208...

New York Mets: is Juan Lagares’ glove golden?

I predicted at the beginning of this season that Juan Lagares would finish in the top 10 in Gold Glove voting. As it turns out, he has a chance to do significantly better than that. New York Mets fans are all aware of Lagares’ defensive wizardry. Nationally, however he isn’t the first name to anyone’s lips despite what the statistics may show. Lagares’ defensive prowess does...

Mets have options in potential deal for Colon

Bartolo Colon laughed when asked about the possibility that the Mets may trade him prior to Sunday's waiver Trade Deadline. A 17-year veteran of eight big league clubs, Colon pays so little heed to this sort of thing that he was unaware he even hit the waiver wire until a reporter brought reports of it to his attention. "Whatever the team and ownership decide to do, that...

WATCH: Mets turn triple play against Dodgers

Thanks to some errant baserunning by Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig, the New York Mets pulled off their first triple play in over four seasons. New York’s Lucas Duda caught Puig rounding third and gunned it to home for the third out, completing the 5-4-3-2 triple play.  Watch the video here!

Britt (Flickr Creative Commons) The New York Mets avoided a sweep finishing up their short west coast trip with a 2-3 record by defeating the Los Angeles Dodgers 11-3.

Lucas Duda’s day has come

For years the debate raged on. Should the Mets keep Ike Davis or Lucas Duda as their first baseman?  Some thought that Duda was the clear-cut better choice, while others steadfastly defended Davis.  I flip-flopped my stance on Davis more times than your average Washington politician. Coming into this season, my stance was I thought that Davis had the higher potential, but Duda...

Keeping Bartolo Colon might be the best move

With the Mets placing Bartolo Colon on revocable waivers Saturday, the possibility of trading their pitcher is becoming real. Although Colon is signed throughout the 2015 season, many fans are calling for the righty to be traded, but the right decision may be holding onto the pitcher. So far throughout this season, Colon has pitched to an 11-10 record, 3.85 ERA, 125 strikeouts and...

New York Mets: Colon still possibly a trade target

Just because the July 31 deadline has passed doesn’t mean teams cannot make trades. The New York Mets and Sandy Alderson certainly know this. As recently as last year the Mets made an August trade in sending Marlon Byrd and John Buck to Pittsburgh. A similar move is possible again this year. Could Bartolo Colon be the replacement for Garrett Richards? Bartolo Colon, the subject...

The viral challenge has taken the Internet by storm this summer with buckets of icy water being dumped on heads in order to raise awareness for ALS.
