David Wright’s Ailments: Unfortunately, We’ve Seen It Before

Some nasty news came down on Saturday, revealing the full extent of David Wright’s latest back trouble. Stenosis of the spine, they’re calling it. You usually hear this description applied to octogenarians – something akin to rheumatism or lumbago. For a 32-year-old elite athlete, it sounds like immediate retirement. In fact, New York Giants running back David Wilson, all...

Matt Reynolds Could Fill The Void At Third

With David Wright‘s immediate future currently up in the air, the Mets have a huge hole in their lineup at the hot corner. Danny Muno and Eric Campbell don’t look like players that can fill an everyday role in the lineup. We have seen Campbell have success off the bench (last year), but he gets over-matched and exposed quickly. This year, Campbell is batting .181 this year but...

Noah Syndergaard gives Carlos Zambrano a run for his money

If the National League ever gets around to adopting the designated hitter, the New York Mets may want to consider allowing their young right-handed pitching phenom Noah Syndergaard to pull double-duty between trips to the mound.

Michael Cuddyer Is Finally Starting To Hit

For the first five weeks of the season, it looked like the Mets’ biggest acquisition from this past offseason was going to be a total bust. However, over the last two or three weeks, Michael Cuddyer has finally begun to turn it around at the plate. Going into the Milwaukee series, Cuddyer was slashing just .233/.298/.358, showing very little power, and was probably one of the least...

Terry Collins: Why his six-man rotation is a bad idea

Baseball is all about innovations. As the game evolves, it is the duty of managers to become more creative with their rosters. Throughout the history of the sport this has been apparent.

Video: Noah Syndergaard crushes first major-league home run

And it was no dinker. Syndergaard, who bats left-handed, smashed a ball to left-center, which...

Dwight Gooden says 'time is now' for Mets, suggests trading for a bat

Former New York Mets great Dwight Gooden was a part of some pretty darn good pitching staffs with the Mets, but he thinks the Mets' current rotation is even better, and thinks the front office should round out the team in hopes of making a serious postseason run. "Our staff was great, but I really think these guys have the potential to be even better," Gooden told the New York Daily...

The One Where Lucas Duda Almost Killed A Guy

Noah Syndergaard strokes his third hit of the day, a single for which he was cruelly robbed of an RBI when Tim Teufel put up the stop sign. They say a bad day at the ballpark is better than a good day at work. I guess that would make a good day at the ballpark better than anything else on earth. I’ll whole-heartedly go with that. This was a notable day for me for two reasons...

Syndergaard Does It All, Hammers Phillies But Good

Reportedly, Noah Syndergaard promised his dad a win on Wednesday for his birthday, and like a dutiful and appreciative son he gave his father all that and more. On the mound, Syndergaard was absolutely filthy, blending his 100 mph heat with a jaw-dropping curve and knee-buckling sinker that left the Phillies lineup stunned, helpless, and impotent. Easily the best start of his young...
