Noah Syndergaard will be called up this year

The past couple of months have been an adventure for Noah Syndergaard. It started in January, with Triple-A Las Vegas manager Wally Backman saying that Steven Matz is the “best pitching prospect” that the Mets have to offer, according to Bill Price of the New York Daily News. Backman would go on to say that Syndergaard has the stuff that could win a Cy Young award, however...

Gut Reaction: Nationals 1, Mets 0 (5/3/15)

The Mets dropped their second straight 1-0 game Sunday afternoon against the Nationals.  Since winning 11 in a row, the Mets are now 3-7. Dillon Gee was the hard-luck loser.  He didn’t pitch particularly good but anytime as a SP you give up one run and take the loss, it’s a tough one to swallow. Alex Torres was phenomenal in relief, pitching two scoreless innings and pitching...

Checking in on the Wilmer Flores as starting shortstop experiment

Before the season started if you were to make the case for using Wilmer Flores at shortstop you would say he looked sort of okay defensively, he makes good contact and he showed in September with regular playing time that he could be an asset offensively. Besides, no one really wanted to see Ruben Tejada as the team’s starter. Since no move was made to bring in another shortstop...

Gut Reaction: Nationals 1, Mets 0 (5/2/15)

In yesterday’s game the Mets struck out 12 times and left eight men on base. Today the offense struck out 10 more times and left 10 runners on base, providing zero offense to back their pitcher. Jon Niese pitched around a lot of traffic on the bases, but managed to give up just one run in the second inning off a Michael Taylor single. Oddly, it was the second hit of the inning...

Amed Rosairo, others, struggling with aggressive assignments

Early last month we wrote about some select Mets prospects that the team had been uncharacteristically aggressive in promoting to start the 2015 season. It was uncharacteristic in the sense that the team has generally been somewhat conservative with many of their prospects under General Manager Sandy Alderson’s regime. It’s unclear whether it was a reversal in approach to managing...

John Mayberry Jr.; use as directed

A serious Mets fan can easily read 20 or more articles about the team and its individual players in a typical week.  There are over a dozen blogs to choose from.  The New York papers usually have one or two Mets pieces each per day.  There’s ESPN and other online sources.  And if you’re really desperate you can listen to WFAN. A good quarter of the articles are dedicated...

Gut Reaction: Mets 4, Nationals 0 (5/1/15)

Well, it was my dad’s birthday and dad’s not a sports fan. So, I didn’t see the game. Actually, that’s not entirely true. I saw one inning. But it was a good one because I saw the Cuddyer homer. So, tell me what I missed. Related Posts: Gut Reaction: Nationals 8 Mets 2 (4/30/15) Gut Reaction: Mets 3 Marlins 1 (4/27/15) BREAKING: Mets sign OF Michael Cuddyer Game Chatter...

Pelfrey, Maine and Heilman – the forgotten Met arms

It seems like ages ago that they wore a Mets uniform, yet in some cases it was just two or three seasons past when they played a key role on the team. We’re not talking about Scott Kazmir – we all keep tabs on him. We’re talking about former top prospects like Mike Pelfrey, John Maine and Aaron Heilman, who were all once thought to be the future of the franchise, much...

Judging Kevin Long’s performance as hitting coach

The extent to which a coach really impacts the results on the field is often discussed, and usually no conclusion is made one way or the other.  One camp asserts that coaches make the philosophical, motivational and physical adjustments to get the most out of players, and the other retorts the players will play how they play regardless of coaching. While it is true that good players...

Gut Reaction: Nationals 8 Mets 2 (4/30/15)

Sandy Alderson is going to have to take a hard look at his “defense doesn’t matter” attitude. The Mets need middle infielders who can, well, middle infield if they’re to have any hope of going far into the playoffs. The gut reaction tonight is revulsion. Jacob deGrom started out blazing, going through the entire Washington lineup in order over the first three innings. The...

The Mets’ Hot Start Will Come In Handy Later

“Calm down; it’s only April.” “I didn’t know 162 games had passed already. Congratulations, NY Mets, on your World Series championship. Oh, wait…” “There’s a long way to go, and Washington will recover.” This is what the Mets fan has heard over the past two-and-a-half weeks. Over that span, the Mets have started 2015 like a house afire, lighting up NL East...

Speed and location for Giancarlo Stanton’s homers against the Mets

We’ve watched Giancarlo Stanton hit a bunch of home runs against the Mets over the years. He’s belted 19 homers lifetime against Mets pitching, including three already this year. You watch the same guy constantly beat your team and you can’t help but to develop a theory. While the Mets’ announcers talk about the need to keep the ball low and away when Stanton’s at the...

Terry Collins on his preferred way to break in relievers

“You try not to put them in a position where they’re destined to fail,” he said. “You try not to bring them in with the bases loaded. You try to let them have clean innings, and try to give them a matchup where they have an advantage. “Once their confidence starts to soar, they get better.” Source: New York Times Perhaps the phrase “clean innings” is up for debate...

Gut Reaction: Marlins 7, Mets 3 (4/29/2015)

Well that wasn’t the plan. The Mets dropped two of their last three to the Miami Marlins, and wouldn’t you know it Dee Gordon was in the mix of it all yet again. Not only has Gordon been red hot overall, hitting above .400 on the season, but against the Mets he’s hitting a ridiculous .464. He also delivered the go-ahead sacrifice fly before Ichiro Suzuki blasted a three-run...

Assessing the value of Bartolo Colon

Bartolo Colon may not be the most athletic, diverse, or even handsomest of pitchers, but he is the best in baseball right now…which means his value is through the roof. Colon has won each of his first four starts, which has only been done by two other pitchers this season (Matt Harvey (NYM) and Alfredo Simon (DET)). In 26 innings thus far in 2015, Colon has a 2.77 ERA with...

Dillon Gee is pitching for his job

The company line coming from Flushing is that Dillon Gee’s job is not in jeopardy. Don’t believe that. Gee, who turned 29 on Tuesday, is absolutely pitching for his job, whether it’s to protect his current role with the Mets or build a strong case for the Texas Rangers or somebody else to stick him in their rotation. Sandy Alderson and his team spent all off-season trying...

Gut Reaction: Marlins 4 Mets 3 (4/28/15)

Not tonight, Josephine… The Miami Marlins scratched out a run in the bottom of the eighth to beat the Mets 4-3, in a game which looked an awful lot like the previous night’s contest. Once again, offense was reserved for the later innings and a parade of hitters returned to their respective benches muttering. It looked for all the world like Terry Collins was punting on this...

Mets Card of the Week: 2015 Terry Collins

2015 TOPPS HERITAGE TERRY COLLINS Nostalgia is a distorting lens. Ralph the ice-cream man used to stop in front of my house every day from late spring to early fall, ringing his bells in four-beat measures that made me dash out my front door and sail over the concrete porch steps. I’d scrape together my available nickels and dimes for a couple of packs of baseball cards, maybe...
