NEW YORK METS NEWS

Out FOXed

I really try not to complain about announcers that aren’t Gary, Keith, and Ron. I listen to a lot of them at different points and appreciate the different points of view. And when announcers start to make no sense, I just tune out and it becomes background noise. But we’re obviously in the Twilight Zone, which makes sense because a Twilight Zone marathon was dominating the airwaves...

Gut Reaction: Dodgers 4, Mets 3 (7/4/15)

“Saturday. In the park. I think it was the Fourth of July.” That blissful song was in my head as I watched the Mets play at Dodgers Stadium a few hours ago. I wasn’t expecting much. I figured since Matt Harvey and Zach Grienke were pitching it would be a light offensive affair, and for the most part it was. Harvey didn’t give up a tremendous amount of hard hit balls. He did...

Dodgers 4, Mets 3: Greinke Good, Bullpen Bad

At this point, it’s almost predictable. Against the Mets’ sputtering offense, of course Zack Greinke pitched 7 shutout innings, leading the Dodgers to a 4-3 victory. Greinke started out a bit rough, spending 23 of his 100 pitches in the first inning. He also only struck out four batters, which is more of a long-term concern than a short-term one. Still, he was brilliant, only...

Oakland A’s trade rumors: Ben Zobrist

Recently, New York writer Joel Sherman reported that New York Mets GM Sandy Alderson is willing to overpay for the Oakland A’s Ben Zobrist. The problem is that the A’s are starting to win games, finally looking to overcome the title of unluckiest team in baseball. It’s a tricky situation that seems to happen every year.

Collins Gets Confidence Vote; Pressure Squarely On Alderson Now

Mets GM Sandy Alderson gave beleaguered manager Terry Collins a “vote of confidence,’’ which traditionally is rarely a good sign. If the clock hadn’t been ticking on Collins yet, it is now. Traditionally, that’s how these things go. ALDERSON: Spares Collins for now. (AP) What winning Friday accomplished was give the Mets a winning record (41-40) at the halfway point,...

Sandy Alderson has alienated the media and fans

Really, Mets360 readers, what’s left to say? It wouldn’t be completely honest to say that it was hard to not write some angry tirade about the team in this space. It was pretty easy, actually. That’s because I’ve joined many Mets fans in moving past anger and into something much worse: apathy. This isn’t uncommon. It’s the sort of feeling we’ve been accustomed to towards...

Alderson Says Promoting Conforto Was Discussed But Unlikely For Now

Last night in Los Angeles, Mets GM Sandy Alderson told reporters that the team has considered promoting outfield prospect Michael Conforto but that the it’s unlikely that it will happen in the near future. “At this point, he’s still in Binghamton and I would expect him to be over there for the near term,” Alderson said. “I don’t want everybody to go out and write that...

The dollars and sens of a Jon Niese-Starlin Castro trade

With teams having hundreds of assets (mostly players) and dynamic varying needs it is pretty challenging to say this team should trade this player, or these players, to that team for such and such a player. Yet still we who write about baseball persist in thinking up trades and reasons for why they could work for both sides. It is evident to all that the Mets and Cubs match up well...

Because Baseball Makes Perfect Sense

A buddy of mine said to me that he felt that the Mets would win on Friday. Mind you this was pretty much immediately after the Mets got swept by the Cubs. Facing Clayton Kershaw on the mound after a long flight seems way too easy to write off. People that watch a lot of baseball … I mean a lot of baseball … understand that it makes sense in its penchant for making no sense. And...

Alderson’s Strategy To Improve Offense Is Hope

The Mets are falling fast in the NL East as management, led by Sandy Alderson – the game’s smartest general manager, as his biographer proclaims – sits idly by utilizing his favorite strategy, which is hope. Nobody likes the chances of the Mets, once ten games over .500, to get past Clayton Kershaw and Zack Greinke in the first two games of their series at Los Angeles. With...
