New York Mets manager Terry Collins is in an improbable position. Few managers get the opportunity to return to the dugout for a fourth season after leading their teams to losing records in the first three.

Speculations on a Terry Collins contract extension

On July 24th the National League standings looked like this: As you can see, the Mets were just one game over .500 trailing the Nationals by three games and they were not in a very good position to make a run at a Wild Card berth since the Pirates, Cubs, and Giants had a good leg up on them. That July date is an important one because it is when the talent infusion started with the...

The past decade has seen a significant shift in the attitude of the Mets fan base and some of you need to be reminded of what they’ve gone through. The called strike three. Being up seven and a...

The Mets are a scary playoff team

Over the weekend, the Mets officially won the National League East, though thanks to the meltdown in Washington — which now includes Jonathan Papelbon publicly choking Bryce Harper, with his manager apparently doing an impression of an ostrich while it happened — the accomplishment has been somewhat overshadowed in the news cycle. And it’s pretty obvious that, with the Nats...
