Gut Reaction: Marlins 6, Mets 5 (9/4/15)

The new-look Mets are supposed to win games like this. Playing against the 56-79 Miami Marlins, these are the “easy” games that many thought would carry the Mets to the playoff promised land. While one loss doesn’t completely negate an easy schedule, or the season, it doesn’t bode well. The most worrisome aspect (no surprise) is the bullpen. Except this time it was Sean Gilmartin...

Scott Boras chooses the nuclear option with Matt Harvey’s innings

Mets people seem to have the idea Boras has influence over the doctors, but Boras said that isn’t so — though he contended his own research does tell him pitchers returning after Tommy John surgery do better long-term with lower innings totals, naming Shaun Marcum and a few others who exceeded previous totals, and later ran into more arm trouble. “These are doctors’ opinions...

2015 World Series champs? Why not us?

Back in April, most of us hoped that if everything went right – if Matt Harvey and Bobby Parnell bounced back, if Travis d’Arnaud and Juan Lagares had breakout seasons, if Jon Niese’s shoulder held up, and David Wright had an MVP-type season, we could approach 85 wins and maybe fight for a wildcard spot. We were coming off a 79-win season and our biggest off-season acquisition...

A Met fan’s realization: it isn’t 2007 anymore

It’s a chronic condition, pessimism is. It’s been a component of Mets fans’ DNA almost since the beginning, a lurking recessive trait that didn’t rear its head until June, 1977 or so. That’s when we all found out that as fans, we can take nothing for granted: we found out that Tom Seaver was not going to grow old as a Met. In the long string of losing that followed...

Has Yoenis Cespeds passed Justin Upton as the premier free agent OF?

Earlier today, we had a comment left on the site suggesting that if the Mets don’t re-sign Yoenis Cespedes, that they turn to Justin Upton as an offensive replacement. While Cespedes is likely helping his chances to earn a big contract with his play since arriving in New York, it’s hard to make that same case for Upton in his new digs. Has Cespedes surpassed Upton as the most...

Is Terry Collins really NL Manager of the Year?

With Labor Day nearly upon us and the Summer giving way to the falling leaves very soon, it seems a good time to evaluate this season and compare it to something tangible. The 2015 New York Mets season has been a story of the tides. A boat on the dock will rise and fall according to the tides. The only thing that it can do is remain tied to the dock and wait it out. The Mets are...

Gut Reaction: Mets 9 Phillies 4 (9/2/15)

On a night dominated by power hitting and power pitching, two “strange” plays will undoubtedly get most of the attention. Matt Harvey looked sharp early for the Mets, striking out the side in the first inning and surrendering 2 hits through three. By that time, the Mets had a 3-0 lead. David Wright led off the bottom of the second with a base hit to center. After flyouts by...

On Steven Matz and press conferences

“A testament to his stature was the fact that Tuesday was the fourth time this season Matz had been taken into a separate room for a news conference at Citi Field, doubling the number of starts he has actually made for the Mets. He also spoke the day before his first appearance on June 28; after his debut of seven and two-thirds quality innings, in which he struck out six while...

By the numbers: Matt Harvey vs Jacob deGrom

In a day and age where Sabermetrics runs the game of baseball, numbers are the easiest way to compare two players to one-another. Usually, fans of a team would compare one of their players to one on another ball club, but is important to compare teammates as well. Going into the 2015 season, Matt Harvey was coming off of Tommy John’s Surgery and was predicted by many to be...

Mets bullpen options for the *cough* playoffs *cough*

As the Mets head into the final month of play, looking down at the Nationals by 6.5 games, the team has to start thinking strategically about which players will make the playoff roster. Obviously any Mets fan that lived through 2007-2008 will be wary of setting anything in stone, but at this point the only familiarity between 2007 and 2015 is David Wright. In any event, the most...

Daniel Murphy is proving to be an all-time great Met

Thoughts of 2016 are far off, as the Mets are making a run at what could and should be a very special season. The chorus of “next year” actually has to wait until next year for a change. So it’s not really worth delving into where Daniel Murphy might land after he becomes a free agent. What matters is how he is playing this year, and it is pretty damn good. For the season Murphy...

Gut Reaction: Mets 3, Phillies 1 (8/31/15)

The Mets completed a 20-win August with a 3-1 win over the Phillies Monday night. With the victory, the Mets are 13-1 against the Phillies so far this season. Bartolo Colon won his 12th game of the year with eight shutout innings. He now has 16 consecutive scoreless frames. New York hit two more homers, bringing its franchise-best mark for a month to 45, matching its total for June...

Logan Verrett screwed by the Mets

Over the weekend, the Mets acquired Addison Reed in an effort to shore up their bullpen. To create room on the 25-man roster, they sent Logan Verrett to the minors. Verrett did absolutely nothing to merit this demotion. Instead, it’s another example of how the team is run on the seniority and hope school of team building. Verrett will in all likelihood return to the majors...

Mets Minors: Six reasons to be happy with Desmond Lindsay

The Mets signed Michael Cuddyer in the offseason to a seemingly modest two-year deal that, in turn, cost them their first round pick in the 2015 Amateur Draft.  While Cuddyer hasn’t worked out fantastically, the Mets seem to have made the most out of their second round pick. The Mets selected Desmond Lindsay 53rd overall in this year’s draft and some fans may have scratched...

Sean Gilmartin could have a big September

Entering this season, the Mets were expecting Michael Cuddyer to be their big offseason acquisition, hoping he would provide a high average, some power, and protection for Lucas Duda and David Wright. While Cuddyer has played well since the start of the second half, there is another offseason acquisition who has quietly put together a nice season. Rule 5 Draft picks are interesting...

Gut Reaction: Mets 5, Red Sox 4 (8/30/15)

Our long national nightmare is over as the Mets broke a two-game losing streak with a 5-4 nail-biting win over the Red Sox Sunday afternoon. Jeurys Familia came on in the ninth with a one-run lead and promptly gave up two hits. But he earned his 35th save of the season, with two strikeouts bookending a fielder’s choice. Tyler Clippard played a big role, pitching out of a jam in...

Mets fans welcome Addison Reed and hiss at Marc Rzepczynski

Saturday the Mets acquired Addison Reed from the Diamondbacks and they made a claim on Marc Rzepczynski (Scrabble), although thankfully up until this point they’ve been unable to come to terms on a deal with the Padres for him. It’s remarkable how many transactions Sandy Alderson has made in general the last 10 months or so, and for the bullpen in particular. If a year ago...

Gut Reation: Red Sox 3, Mets 1 (8/29/15)

Only three Mets collected hits today, which has been a far cry from how things have been going. Even with a loss yesterday, the Mets still were able to score four runs on eight hits. It was just an unfortunate day where the team couldn’t seem to get anything going against Joe Kelly and the Boston Red Sox, who have been playing rather well of late. To add a little salt on the wound...
