According to Joel Sherman of the NY Post, the Mets have told the Colorado Rockies they would like to be involved with trade discussions if and when Troy Tulowitzki and Carlos Gonzalez become available. Sherman says that Rockies ownership has strongly stated it does not want to deal CarGo and, especially, Tulowitzki. But the extended run of poor play by the franchise, the growing...

Wilmer Flores is en-route to join the Mets in Milwaukee for their series opener tonight against the Brew-Crew. There has been no corresponding move as of yet.

Mets and DeGrom Facing A Looming Innings Cap

Prior to Tuesday nights game in Seattle, Jacob deGrom had won two straight decisions both pitching into the seventh inning and both wins were of the lopsided nature, as the Mets defeated the Atlanta Braves 8-3 and Miami Marlins 9-1. Not much effort was needed from the young rookie, even though he would pitch masterfully in both. Tuesday’s game against Seattle was a bit different...

Bartolo Colon Is Upping His Trade Value At The Perfect Time

Bartolo Colon was an interesting gamble for Mets general manager Sandy Alderson in the off-season.  I believe Sandy had every intention of flipping Colon for young prospects prior to this year’s trade deadline.  Bartolo’s Cy Young caliber performance in Oakland last year was expected to carry over to Flushing in 2014 and while it hasn’t been that stellar, he has put up above...

Mets Want To See More Consistency From Syndergaard

Almost echoing what I said yesterday, after the Mets wrapped up their series win in Seattle, they said they are not yet convinced that Noah Syndergaard is ready to make the move to the majors. What the Mets player development people are looking for from their top pitching prospect is the “consistency” that I talked about yesterday. Two front office people did admit to the Daily...

What Does A Mets “Core Four” Look Like?

It’s a fascinating query, a paradox of sorts, a question with no easy answer.  That fact speaks more to the New York Mets lingering status in baseball Nowhere Land than anything else.  No matter, identifying four core or foundational players of the New York Mets can be a real baseball brain teaser. The concept of the ‘core four’ evolved from our pinstripe rivals across town...

Di-Jest: Wilpons Hatch Plan For Bogus Wright Retirement Tour

The crack investigative unit here at MMO has uncovered a cynical plot developed by Jeff Wilpon with the approval of Papa Fred and Uncle (“Can I sell yet?”) Saul. The younger Wilpon has become envious of what the Yankees, another team on the down slide, have done during the 2013 and 2014 seasons. Last year Mariano Rivera spent the entire season being praised and lavished with...

Can deGrom Win Rookie of the Year?

Today’s buzz is all about Jacob deGrom and thanks to manager Terry Collins, the question becomes can the 25-year old righthander come from behind and cop this year’s rookie of the year award. “He’s always flown under the radar. He still is,” Terry Collins said after last night’s 3-1 win over the Mariners. “This guy has got numbers to match up with any rookie in the...

Lucas Duda: The Mets Most Pleasant Surprise in 2014

Nobody wanted Ike Davis patrolling the first base bag at Citi Field this year more than me. In several posts over the off-season I outlined my arguments why I believed that if the Mets chose to go within the organization at first base it made baseball sense that Davis was their man. Recent history with losing Beltran and Reyes and Dickey readied me to lose Ike as well. Making the...
