Matt Harvey Not Happy About Six-Man Rotation?

It was tough not to notice the following item about Matt Harvey while reading Adam Rubin’s Morning Briefing today: “Matt Harvey has every reason to be perturbed. He has tossed a career-high-matching 16 straight scoreless innings, yet has no-decisions in each of his past two starts. And now the New York Mets are expected to go to a six-man rotation, which will decrease his opportunities...

Does Sandy Alderson really want Terry Collins to succeed?

As someone who has read more than two dozen books on the Kennedy Assassination it could be said that I am somewhat disposed to seeing conspiracies even where they don’t exist. One of the other sports teams I follow is the New York Jets (yes, I can really pick them). For those not familiar with their recent history here’s a quick overview. A few years ago the team’s owner...

With Gee Rejoining Team On Saturday, Mets Leaning Toward Six-Man Rotation

Manager Terry Collins left reporters at PNC Park with a strong impression that when Dillon Gee returns to the Mets tomorrow, that he will become part of a six-man rotation. It will allow the Mets to hold off making an immediate decision on what to do with rookie right-hander Noah Syndergaard. Additionally, it could provide an extra day of rest for Matt Harvey, who is having his...

Could Plawecki Stay On The Roster When d’Arnaud Returns?

With Travis d’Arnaud nearing a return from the disabled list, Terry Collins says that sending down Kevin Plawecki will be a hard decision. Even though Plawecki is batting only .205 with two home runs and 10 RBI during 21 games, Collins is impressed with how he has played defensively and handled the pitching staff. (Kristie Ackert, NY Daily News) “He’s done great, he has played...

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...

DeGrom struck out 11 batters and did not allow a base runner after Matt Carpenter singled in the first inning, retiring the next 23 batters in a row.

Collins Made Right Call To Pull De Grom

It would have been nice to see Jacob deGrom finish today’s start for the Mets, but manager Terry Collins‘ decision to pull him was totally reasonable. At the beginning of the season Collins said deGrom and Matt Harvey would be watched carefully in terms of pitch counts and monitoring, which fell into line his decision to not let him come out for the ninth. DEGROM: Pulled out...

Is Panic In The Mets’ DNA?

Sometimes, Mets manager Terry Collins sounds like a man who is trying to convince himself of something he’s not sure of, when he said, or vowed, his team would not panic. As somebody who has been in on hundreds of such press briefings, I know why the topic of panic was raised. Believe me, it’s not because it’s New York and the media is prying. The question would be the same...

Mets Not Panicking Despite Falling Out Of First

With another Mets blowout loss and another Nationals win over the Yankees, the Mets officially fell out of first place in the NL East for the first time since April 14. Despite that, manager Terry Collins insisted that no one in the clubhouse is panicking right now. “We’re not even out of May”, said Collins. “There’s another 10 game winning streak that’s in there. There’s...

'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...

Mets Facing Critical Juncture To Season

Every season has its critical juncture and for the Mets it is now after Bartolo Colon‘s 41-year-old arm was mauled tonight by major league’s best team in St. Louis. The Mets’ 11-game winning streak and eight-game lead over Washington has faded from euphoria to the cusp of panic after Colon was ripped. We’ve seen hot streaks from the Mets morph into inescapable slides before...

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...

Collins Responds To Calls To Fire Him

I was a little dumbfounded when I logged on to see what was churning on Mets Twitter Tuesday morning and was smacked in the face by an article by Joel Sherman practically daring the front office to fire Terry Collins and another post by MetsBlog saying the Terry Watch was back on. I was like “wait a minute, we won in walk-off style last night, our third win in a row, and we were...

Terry Collins reacts to Jon Niese's rough outing for Mets

Jon Niese experienced another rough start for the New York Mets on Tuesday, in which he surrendered eight earned runs on 11 hits in five innings in a loss to the St. Louis Cardinals. "The biggest [reason] is that he didn't have his two-seam fastball," manager Terry Collins explained of Niese's performance. "Every time it was called for, it either went straight or he cut it. … He...

D’Arnaud Progressing Well, Could Be Activated For Pirates Series

The news is good on Travis d’Arnaud who has already been cleared to swing a bat and took some dry swings on Monday and will now ramp things up from there. “Tomorrow, he’ll probably do some more dry work, then some tee work, if everything is OK there, he’ll do some soft tosses so he can get used to the shock of the ball,” Terry Collins told reporters. And while Terry or...

You can read it here if you are so inclined. Well, here we are two years later and wouldn’t you know it, Terry is still our manager. I guess none of the options I so graciously put forward were considered. I especially thought the sign-language speaking gorilla...
