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...

Mets GM Sandy Alderson and manager Terry Collins were quick to blame social media for Wednesday’s trade that fell through which would have sent Milwaukee’s Carlos Gomez to the Mets in exchange for Wilmer Flores and Zack Wheeler.

Mets-Brewers mess shows perils of Twitter -- and it isn't going away

The words often are necessary in media reports of baseball transactions -- “pending a physical” for free-agent signings, or “pending a review of medical records” for trades. The words mean that a transaction is not yet official. And every so often, a team grows concerned enough over a player’s physical condition to back out of a deal completely. This is what happened Wednesday...
