Dodgers & Mets Should Be Trade Partners

It’s been well documented the needs of the Los Angeles Dodgers – to bolster its starting staff behind Greinke and Kershaw – especially with the news of Hyun-Jin Ryu’s injury and to augment their back end rather than relying on Carlos Frias or Mike Bolsinger for the whole season (although they’ve both been very good to this point). They also can’t rely on the continued...

Mets Facing Critical Time

After his Mets were swept out of Pittsburgh, manager Terry Collins insisted his team was not at a “critical juncture,’’ in the season – which I said they were several days ago – and wasn’t “dead in the water.’’ COLLINS: What’s he really thinking? (AP) It’s still May and they are 2.5 games behind Washington – after being ahead by eight – so dead might be...

Mets Recall Danny Muno, Option Johnny Monell

The Mets announced they have called up infielder Daniel Muno from Triple-A Las Vegas. This will be the second time around for Muno, who had one hit in six plate appearances for the Mets earlier this season. He was hitting .280 with one home run and 12 RBI in 100 at-bats for Las Vegas on the year. To make room for Muno, the Mets optioned catcher Johnny Monell back to Triple-A.

Is Noah Syndegaard One too Many for the Mets’ Rotation?

(AP Photo/Charles Rex Arbogast) Since Dillon Gee went on the disabled list with a groin injury on May 9th, and Noah Syndegaard was called up, he has had three strong outings.  Although he posted...

Eric Campbell: Soup’s Too Cold

David Wright has been diagnosed with spinal stenosis, which varies in its severity. While doctors are hoping it can be alleviated with rest in David’s case, it has also been known to be more severe, as it caused Lenny Dykstra to end his career at the age of 35. Whatever the case may be, oh Captain our Captain will be out for a while longer, leaving the Mets weighing their options...

Collins Attributes Harvey’s Career-Worst Outing To Pitching On Regular Rest

After Matt Harvey endured the worst start of his major league career on Saturday, Terry Collins used the opportunity to say that pitching on regular rest played a significant role in what transpired. Harvey, who made it known before the game he unhappy about the six-man rotation, gave up six hits including two homers, two walks and seven runs in four innings. “You’ve got to...

Will We See Wright Again This Year?

At the beginning of spring training I wrote the position player the Mets could least afford to lose was third baseman David Wright. We can now assume that to be the case with reports out Pittsburgh are Wright’s lower-back pain has resurfaced and he’s been shut down again. The 32-year-old Wright went on the disabled list April 15 with a pulled right hamstring, and the initial...

Six-Man Rotation Could Be Good For Mets, Pending Harvey’s Approval

The New York Mets are again making noise about going with a six-man rotation when Dillon Gee is activated from the disabled list. Doing so would allow them to not choose between Gee and Noah Syndergaard, Friday’s starter in Pittsburgh. The Mets considered this before Gee was injured, but rejected it, in large part because it would have meant Matt Harvey pitching with more rest...

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...

'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...

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...

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...

A New York Mets fan was caught on a broadcast camera as he repeatedly groped a woman during a game at Citi Field on Sunday. The man, whose identity is not known at this time, could be seen sitting on the third base line during the seventh inning of the game grabbing at the breast of the woman next to him.

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...

Carlos Gomez gets hit in head with 97 mph fastball

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. That’s some difficult footage to watch, but amazingly, Gomez reportedly avoided significant injury. Carlos Gomez...

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...
