Syndergaard's Thor bobblehead features awkward Mjölnir

The New York Mets on Saturday will hold Noah Syndergaard as Thor Bobblehead Night at Citi Field. The first 15,000 fans through the gates will receive the aforementioned bobblehead in a promotion fittingly sponsored by Marvel. Given the injured Mets ace’s uses the Norse god’s name as his moniker (here and here), it makes perfect sense to depict on-the-mend pitcher as Thor.It also...

Did Christie deserve to be booed after catching a foul ball at the Mets game?

If anybody else at CitiField caught a ball - barehanded yet! - they would have been cheered. It was a game, after all, where the Mets made three errors all by themselves, so anybody catching one would have gotten a round of applause. Only it was Gov. Chris Christie who made the catch. And he was immediately booed, at least... If anybody else at CitiField caught a...

We’re getting nearer the trade deadline right now and this is one of the two seasons during which MLB General Managers are judged – the other being the annual Winter Meetings. This is a crucial time for just about every franchise every year.

Mets' Yoenis Cespedes has new hair but the same attitude

Blue-hued Cespedes has come out of his first-half slump. NEW YORK -- Terry Collins says he can stomach a lot. What he might have to stomach now is a clubhouse full of blue hair.  Last year, Jose Reyes bleached his when the Mets went on their season-ending tear that led to a Wild Card berth. Wednesday, Yoenis Cespedes dyed his hair blue hoping...

Shooter McGavin throws out first pitch at Brooklyn Cyclones' 'Villain Appreciation Night'

In keeping up with zany Minor League Baseball promotions, the Brooklyn Cyclones held “Villain Appreciation Night” on Wednesday. On a night like this, you need a true villain to throw out the first pitch. Someone so dastardly that you can’t even stand thinking of him, let alone looking at him. The Cyclones found the perfect villain — Shooter McGavin. Indeed, Hollywood has...

Yoenis Cespedes dyes his hair blue

The New York Mets are struggling, so Yoenis Cespedes is trying a bold new look to change their fortunes. The Mets’ official Twitter shared a photo of the star outfielder, whose hair is now a distinctly Mets-like shade of blue. Cespedes does enjoy making a statement. It would probably work better if he had longer hair, but you take what you can get. This is, perhaps, an attempt...

Keith Hernandez left the SNY booth to buy a pretzel in the middle of another Mets loss

The New York Mets are 41-50 this season, and they’re bad in the worst possible way: with and old, uninspired, injured and underperforming roster that has fans feeling silly for believing before the season that their team could contend for the playoffs.So with that in mind, it’s hard to blame the team’s broadcasters from feeling like they’d rather be somewhere else. During...

Terry Collins, Jacob deGrom downplay Mets trade rumors

The New York Mets (41-50, 15 games out in the NL East) very well could be sellers leading up to the July 31 MLB trade deadline. But even if that’s the case, Mets skipper Terry Collins is attempting to keep the clubhouse together by pointing out that until a deal is made, every player on the roster should be committed to the organization, saying, “You’re a New York Met until...

Christie mercilessly booed after catching foul ball at Mets game

Governor of New Jersey Chris Christie is one of the least popular governors of all time. His approval rating is so low that, as Five Thirty Eight put it, “Chris Christie is still more popular than governors who were literally criminals, but nearly no one else.”Christie is in such “screw it” mode that he closed a beach to the public and hung out there with his family, then...

Why Michael Conforto should be batting third for the New York Mets

Coming out of the All-Star break, the New York Mets looked like a completely new team, winning two straight games against the Colorado Rockies by a combined score of 23-5. Jacob deGrom and Seth Lugo both looked excellent on the mound, the offense put up crooked numbers early and often in both games, and morale was extremely high. Sunday’s 13-4 loss to end the series certainly dampened...

Tim Tebow hits walk-off home run, Mets fans go nuts (VIDEO)

Tim Tebow gave his critics reason to believe he’s still on Class-A St. Lucie for reasons other than selling tickets.
