Steven Matz is the final piece for the future rotation

The Mets have featured young starting pitchers who can throw absolute heat in the past couple of seasons. In 2012, we saw Matt Harvey’s first major league start against the Arizona Diamondbacks, and going 5.1 innings while striking out 11 and getting the win. In 2013, Zack Wheeler made his debut against the Atlanta Braves, earning the win while striking out seven and walking five...

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. Here’s this year’s list of the walking wounded...

Darrell Ceciliani is becoming the fourth outfielder

The New York Mets have had many concerns throughout the 2015 season, starting with injuries to key players, an inexperienced shortstop, and a struggling offense. The starting rotation has overcome Zack Wheeler’s injury nicely, and the bullpen has not been bad, although they struggled yesterday when Jeurys Familia was unavailable. Wilmer Flores has been solid at shortstop, and the...

Binghamton Mets prospect evalations 6/11/15

Every season I try to attend a few of the Mets’ minor league affiliate games to see the future in action.

New York Mets trade rumors: so long, Jon Niese

For the first time in a very long time, the Mets actually have a solid rotation, even without Zack Wheeler in the mix. Jacob has been DeGrominating (7-4, 2.42 ERA), Matt Harvey has had a solid return to the team after missing last season because of Tommy John surgery (6-3, 3.05), and the legend that is Bartolo Colon has been tearing it up on the mound and in the batters box (8-4...

Syndergaard Steps Onto The Big Stage Tonight

Just as they were with Matt Harvey and Zack Wheeler, don’t look for the Mets to bring up Noah Syndergaard for a spot start. Once he’s here, unless he really spits the bit, he’s not going anywhere. Like everybody else, I’m excited to see him pitch, just as I was when Harvey and Wheeler first came up. What it means is Dillon Gee will move to the bullpen or be traded. That...

If It Happens, Mets Seem Well Equipped To Usher In The DH

Designated Hitter. The concept invokes a variety of opinions, however, the majority of National League baseball fans view it unfavorably. There’s great arguments on both sides, it would benefit the game in many ways and certainly add more excitement. However, it would also mark the end of a tradition that has held strong for decades, despite the urging of many due to the potential...

MMO Mailbag: Is This Team For Real?

Jenn 23 asks… This is basically the same team as last year minus Zack Wheeler and Josh Edgin. How did they get so good? Or is this just a dream? Thanks for all you do and Let’s Go Mets! Rob replies… Hey, Jenn! Thanks for the question.  One major thing that differentiates this year’s team from last year’s team is a healthy Matt Harvey. When you have a guy of that caliber...

New York Mets: Montero recalled, Muno demoted following Monday’s win

It seems the New York Mets aren’t sure how they want to use Rafael Montero. Moved to the bullpen at the end of last season as well as this spring, due to an overstuffed rotation, Montero was not expected to start in any capacity. A few weeks later, following news that Zack Wheeler was lost for the season, Montero was given a shot to compete with Dillon Gee for the 5th starter’s...

Injuries not stopping Mets

Even with the best record in the National League, Met fans aren't doing much celebrating what with two more significant injuries to Travis d'Arnaud and Jerry Blevins. But winning teams can overcome injuries, and so far at least, the Mets have done just that.  The Mets have had so many injuries lately that some articles about them don't even mention Zack Wheeler.

Why Zack Wheeler going down is a blessing in disguise

Zack Wheeler has had a history of pain in his throwing elbow before and now has resulted in the need for Tommy John Surgery. The Mets knowledge of his elbow led him to be kept away from the trading block for the winter and see how well he could perform during spring training. He received a platelet-rich-plasma injection during the offseason in hopes to get rid of the problem. Wheeler...
