Don’t Think We’ll See Mejia Again

Resiliency is a characteristic of a championship caliber team, and so far it defines the 2015 New York Mets. To date, they have lost for the season Zack Wheeler and Josh Edgin to elbow injuries, and Jenrry Mejia to a drug suspension. They are also without David Wright, Travis d’Arnaud, Vic Black and Bobby Parnell. A little more than two weeks in and the Mets are on their second...

Mets Have The Best Record In Baseball, Ready To Take The Plunge?

MLB Players of Week 2: Nelson Cruz, Jacob deGrom

There was some offensive firepower this past week. Many players could be deserving of the Player of the Week.

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. For a team built...

Measuring Jacob deGrom’s outstanding last 18 games

This may be the 10th article you’ve read about Jacob deGrom in the last 12 hours. But he’s been so good he’s deserved every one of them. He’s one pitch away from having not allowed a run in three starts. Even with that gopher ball, he’s got a 0.94 ERA in 19.1 IP. Raise your hand if you saw that coming. I see some liars out there. Coming into the season, ZiPS forecasted...

No Fooling Around; Put Wright On DL

DeGrom A Most Intriguing Met

Of all the Mets’ young pitchers, I am most intrigued with Jacob deGrom, last year’s NL Rookie of the Year and Wednesday’s starter at Washington. Quiet and unassuming, unlike Matt Harvey, deGrom came out of the bullpen last season following an injury to Dillon Gee and never left the rotation. Hopefully, he’ll stay in it for years. Why deGrom over the others? DeGROM: Captures...

He received a platelet-rich-plasma injection during the offseason in hopes to get rid of the problem. Wheeler...

Well Joel Sherman of the New York Post has it all figured out. But doesn’t everybody now? “The perception they gave to the industry was Wheeler was...
