Robert Gsellman, a different kind of Mets pitching prospect

The 2016 season started off with great promise and optimism. The team was coming off a World Series appearance, their starting rotation was primed to start what we all thought a long stretch of dominance of the National League, and they even managed to retain the services of one Yoenis Cespedes despite the odds. It was going to be a good year. A perpetually stalled Tommy John rehabilitation...

The Great Ed Kranepool Made Me A Mets Fan

  Getty Images In 1962, I was 13 years old, my current wife Carmen was barely two, President John F. Kennedy was in his first term and the New York Mets were born. I sometimes wonder why I remember the Mets back then, because I really wasn’t a baseball fan that cared too much about the teams, but for whatever reason I was made aware of their existence. I was raised in Spanish...

‘Not all a cakewalk’: Mets face these lingering issues

On the surface all was well for the Mets. Bartolo Colon pitched deep into Friday’s game and won. The offensive slugged four homers in a 9-4 win over the Phillies. But there are issues.

It’s time for Mets to bench Curtis Granderson

Curtis Granderson will never be confused with Jason Bay or Michael Cuddyer, two big-name disappointments the Mets endured in recent seasons. Without Granderson’s contributions as a force from the leadoff spot last year, the Mets probably wouldn’t have reached the World Series. The team would have been long dead even before Yoenis Cespedes could have...

Noah Syndergaard Showed a Fix

The Giants faced Noah Syndergaard Sunday night, and they tried to steal two bases. Both times, they were unsuccessful. That’s notable because Syndergaard, this year, has been horrible about controlling the running game. It’s been his one drawback — before Sunday, runners in 2016 were 40-for-44 in their attempts. The Giants assumed they’d be able to take advantage of his vulnerability...
