METS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Mets360 2014 Projection Review: Dillon Gee

Our projection review series continues with one of the larger enigmas of the 2014 Mets. Dillon Gee was coming off a surprisingly productive 2013. He logged a career-best 199 innings pitched, with above average rate stats, his 1.218 WHIP in particular. All signs pointed to a continuation of that trend in 2014, so much so that – in the face of a major injury to Matt Harvey, and...

Familia Replacing Mejia As The Mets Closer?

Mike Vorkunov of NJ.com ponders if the Mets should just go with Jeurys Familia as the team’s closer next season. He argues that as as impressive as Jenrry Mejia was last season in his first stint as closer, Familia was far more consistent than him. “While Mejia’s saves could sometimes feel like he was walking a tight-rope (A 1.50 WHIP in save situations), Familia was more stable...

Will Sandy Alderson make any moves?

Citi Field Fence Changes Could Change Team Strategy

In the last few years, the New York Mets have done a pretty good job building up their farm system with a lot of pitching.
