If the Mets Had Money

Entering today, the New York Mets lead the NL East by 1.5 games over the Washington Nationals. There’s no telling who will come out on top at the end of this season, but we’re seeing a validation of the Mets sterling rotation. Matt Harvey, Jacob deGrom, and Noah “Thor” Syndergaard, along with the ageless Bartolo Colon, have brought the Mets back to relevance. And with Zack...

Mets Starting Rotation Could Be MLB’s Best Ever

Of The New Guys, Who Stays?

Unquestionably, the Mets are a better team today than a week ago. They added depth with Kelly Johnson and Juan Uribe; strengthened their bullpen with Tyler Clippard; and gave their offense a tremendous boost with Yoenis Cespedes. Do they have enough now – remember, they can always add more in August with waiver deals – to overtake Washington? Yes, they are good enough to not...

Want Bruce For Mets

Of all the Mets’ trade rumors, I like the one involving Jay Bruce best. I am not thrilled with the prospects of trading for Yoenis Cespedes or Yasiel Puig, although I doubt the Dodgers will move the latter. BRUCE: Want him for Mets. (AP) Cespedes is a headache waiting to happen, and Puig is already a man-child. Bruce is having somewhat of a bounce back season, but his numbers...

Current and historical disabled list info for the Mets

A favorite ploy of managers and athletes is to use the phrase, “I don’t want to use injuries as an excuse.” Of course they immediately go on to do just that. Injuries are part of the game, we all get that. But at some point, it would be nice if the Mets weren’t hanging around the league leaders in time missed to injury.
