METS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Terry Collins turns stern, calls out Kevin Plawecki

Terry Collins preached patience everywhere but behind the plate. He talked optimistically despite Matt Harvey’s continued struggles on the mound and said the Mets hit the ball well all night despite managing just a single in a 3-0 loss to the woeful Braves Tuesday night at Citi Field. Yet, when asked about catcher Kevin Plawecki,...

Travis d’Arnaud is solely resting, which complicates return date

Mets catcher Travis d’Arnaud went on the disabled list with a rotator cuff strain eight days ago and he hasn’t started throwing yet. He is simply resting, not doing anything strenuous, manager Terry Collins said Tuesday, adding he “can’t predict” when d’Arnaud will return. “He is not doing anything but resting still right now,” Collins...

The strange invisibility of lightning-rod Matt Harvey

Remember Harvey Day? Seems about as long ago as the days when you would get milk delivered to your front door, doesn’t it? Matt Harvey lost again Tuesday night, 3-0 to the awful Braves at Citi Field. He petered out again in the fifth and sixth innings, when the Braves scored all of their runs...

Gut reaction: Braves 3, Mets 0, 5/3/2016

The Mets managed just one hit at home against the last place Braves. The Mets’ lineup made Matt Wisler look like Jim Palmer, hitting pop-up after pop-up off him for 8 innings. Typically, it happened during a Matt Harvey start. The right hander has had his own struggles, but not getting any run support all season has certainly not helped matters. Thought the Mets did hit the ball...

Mallex Smith hits first career homer off Matt Harvey

Mallex Smith has been in the big leagues for nearly 20 games now, but it wasn’t until Tuesday night that the Atlanta Braves centerfielder hit his first home run. It was against the New York Mets and Matt Harvey of all people. It was a home run that few will forget. After the ball barely went over the wall, it originally appeared to be merely a triple. After the umpires used some...

How good has the New York Mets middle-infield been?

The New York Mets’ new double play combination- Asdrubal Cabrera and Neil Walker- has been an offensive bright spot this season. Cabrera is hitting .306 coming into play Tuesday night while Walker is hitting .305 with nine home runs and 19 RBI. To say that these players have been productive all around would be an understatement, but it has been their recent defense that has been...

Jerry Blevins Proving To Be A Big Part Of Mets Pen

The New York Mets completed one of their best April’s in team history, going 15-7 for a .682 winning percentage. As Adam Rubin noted, the Mets twice had more wins in April in 2006 (16-8) and 2002 (16-10) but those were in more games played. A number of factors led to such an impressive month, as the Mets offense woke up halfway through April, the starting pitching was impressive...

Colon earns 220th win, passes Pedro on list

When Bartolo Colon tied Pedro Martinez last month for the second-most wins ever among Dominican-born pitchers, Martinez reached out via mutual friends on Twitter to congratulate him. "Of course I don't have Twitter," Colon said, laughing, as if the idea of a 42-year-old on social media seemed preposterous.

Terry Collins doesn’t agree with Joe Girardi’s opinion on shifts

New York Yankees manager Joe Girardi made some waves this week when he not only bemoaned the increasingly prevalent use of defensive shifts in Major League Baseball, but called for an outright ban on them. “It’s illegal defense, just like basketball,” Girardi said Tuesday. “Guard your man. Guard your spot. If I were commissioner, they’d be illegal. As long as it’s legal...

Kevin Plawecki can help the New York Mets catching situation

New York Mets catcher Travis d’Arnaud felt pain in his shoulder during Monday night’s contest against the Cincinnati Reds and will now be placed on the 15-day disabled list with a rotator cuff strain. This will give his backup, Kevin Plawecki, a chance to impress his skipper, Terry Collins, in the hope of gaining more playing time. Plawecki had 233 at-bats with the Mets last...

Yoenis Cespedes returns with pinch-hit home run, Mets dugout goes wild (VIDEO)

Talk about returning with a bang. After being absent for four days due to a knee injury, Yoenis Cespedes came back to action in a pinch-hitting role on Tuesday. The Mets were down 3-0 to Cincinnati in the bottom of the seventh, but had two runners on base. Wasting no time (and probably making up for lost time), Cespedes made good on Brandon Finnegan’s initial offering. Yoenis...
