METS RUMORS & GOSSIP

A Month To Forget For Curtis Granderson

Saturday night was not too kind to the struggling Curtis Granderson. The Mets right fielder went 0-for-4, striking out with the bases loaded to end the seventh and leaving the field to a chorus of boos. Ironically, it was supposed to be his day as the Mets gave out Granderson bobbleheads to fans who were in attendance. When he returned to the dugout, Terry Collins told Granderson...

Backman Has No Shot At Managing Mets Despite Being Named League’s Best Manager

John Harper of the Daily News wrote an extensive article on what the future may hold for Wally Backman now that he has been named the PCL Manager of the Year. He says that if nothing else, the award is just more proof that Backman is a very good minor-league manager who deserves a chance at a big-league job. Terry Collins is almost a lock to be back in 2015 and everything Harper...

Why Eric Campbell should be playing LF now (and maybe next year too!)

Over 160 career ABs, Matt den Dekker has shown that he is most likely not going to be the Mets everyday LF for the foreseeable future. We all know he can play the position, but he can’t hit. His K rate has decreased in his current stint on the Mets, but he isn’t hitting for power, he’s not hitting for average, he’s not doing anything with his bat. His wRC+ is 56, his ISO...

Dilson Herrera and Daniel Murphy: Is There A Method To This Madness?

In a shocking twist to what has been another typical season under the Terry Collins Era, the New York Mets placed All-Star second baseman Daniel Murphy on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right calf and recalled second baseman Dilson Herrera from Binghamton (AA).

How much money would it take to fix the Mets?

If you listen to people around the baseball world there is a general consensus.  The Mets could be contenders in 2015 and all it will take is money.  Sure, Sandy Alderson could get creative.  He could trade some of the young talent and find ways of improving the anemic offense without spending money, but why should he?  Why not keep hold of Noah Syndergaard, Jacob deGrom, Rafael...

Matt den Dekker and the future of the Mets outfield

Currently the Mets outfield is made up of two players in the teams long term plans, Curtis Granderson and Juan Lagares. The third outfield position is manned by a make it or break it platoon of Matt den Dekker and Eric Campbell.

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...

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...
