Suspension of Mets' Mejia prompts newspaper's 'dumbest athlete' poll

New York Mets reliever Jenrry Mejia joined an exclusive club when he received a 162-game ban from Major League Baseball on Tuesday for a second doping violation this season. New York Yankees slugger Alex Rodriguez is the only other player to receive a suspension of that length, but Mejia's ban, shockingly, was his second this season. He was suspended 80 games in April for violating...

Mike Stobe/Getty Images I don’t want to bury the lead here. And the lead to me is Noah Syndergaard’s fantastic outing on Tuesday night against the Padres in a 4-0 victory. Syndergaard was perfect through six innings, and gave up three hits, no walks, and struck out nine batters in eight innings of work. Lucas Duda hit a two run bomb in the first for all the Mets needed, and...

Gut Reaction: Mets 4 Padres 0 (7/27/15)

Jenrry Mejia’s stupidity has cost the Mets his services for the foreseeable future. The Mets will not be reacquainted with Jose Reyes, nor will they be acquiring his new teammate, Carlos Gonzales. David Wright took a few tentative grounders on the Citi Field dirt. But none of that matters tonight. Let the rest of the National League take notice: the hammer has been dropped....

Mets reliever Jenrry Mejia suspended 162 games for PEDs

Jenrry Mejia, what are you doing, man? The New York Mets players, coaches and executives are surely asking that very question as the reliever tested positive for the second time this year, thus drawing a 162-game suspension. Mejia had already missed the first 80 games of the season after failing a test for PEDs. As if that wasn’t astounding enough, the 25-year-old got dinged...

Mets Should Cut All Ties With Mejia

Mets reliever Jenrry Mejia has just locked up the “Idiot of the Year” honors for being suspended another 162 games without pay for another positive test for performance enhancing drugs. GM Sandy Alderson didn’t come out and say Mejia was done with the Mets, presumably because the MLB Players Association would have its say. Mejia’s first suspension was for testing positive...

Mets Use Depth To Get Tyler Clippard

Though the Mets might need a bat most of all, their acquisition of Tyler Clippard makes good sense. By fielding-independent numbers, their bullpen has been middle-of-the-road so far this year, and the returns of Jenrry Mejia and Bobby Parnell might not be enough to push this bullpen into a strength as the end of the […]

New York Mets trade rumors: a healthy player, please

No matter how much New York Mets fans want the team to make a move, as they really should, it doesn’t look like they are going to do anything, even though the team has been absolutely decimated by injuries all season. If they weren’t going to trade for a healthy player and/or an actual bat when things were looking as bad as ever, then it’s unlikely that they’re going to...
