Mets and fans enjoying view from the top

Exactly one month ago, here's how I described my visit to Citi Field: The biggest cheer at yesterday's latest dreary loss came when the Mets actually scored a run. There was a time when I hoped to see a no-hitter, not Jacob deGrom crossing the plate with the Mets' only run of the entire series. The Cubs won, that day 6-1, to sweep the Mets and drop them to .500 (40-40).  The...

Lucas Duda Is Not The Only One Blasting Home Runs for the Mets

It has been awhile since the New York Mets have been considered a legitimate contender in their division, but the time very well may have come. With six wins in their last eight games--including a 5-2 win over the Nationals on Sunday--the Mets are now tied on top of their division with Washington.Lucas Duda has had a lot to do with that run having hit nine home runs over the last...

Terry Collins has an offense to work with

The league better be taking notice of the New York Mets, as the team does not only feature one of the best rotations in baseball, but an offense and a bench that could be putting up some good numbers, or at least better than the numbers before. If new acquisitions Yoenis Cespedes, Kelly Johnson and Juan Uribe can produce, the Mets will be a scary team to play down the stretch, and...

Mets Option Michael Conforto To Triple-A Las Vegas

No surprise here, but the New York Mets announced that they have optioned outfielder Michael Conforto to Triple-A Las Vegas to make room for newly acquired Yoenis Cespedes on the 25-man roster. I was hoping that Eric Campbell would be the one to go and that the Mets would keep Conforto around for another week until […]

Carlos Torres has turned it up

The Mets bullpen didn’t appear to be a weakness heading into the season. In fact, it seemed that it may have been an actual strength. Then all of the misfortune came washing down. Josh Edgin was lost to Tommy John surgery. Vic Black and Bobby Parnell hit the disabled list. Jenrry Mejia was slapped with what turned out to be the first of his PED suspensions. Buddy Carlyle was placed...

Of The New Guys, Who Stays?

Unquestionably, the Mets are a better team today than a week ago. They added depth with Kelly Johnson and Juan Uribe; strengthened their bullpen with Tyler Clippard; and gave their offense a tremendous boost with Yoenis Cespedes. Do they have enough now – remember, they can always add more in August with waiver deals – to overtake Washington? Yes, they are good enough to not...

Gut Reaction: Mets 2, Nationals 1 (7/31)

What a game this turned out to be. Matt Harvey looked like a man on a mission tonight, as he went 7.2 innings, struck out 9 and allowed one run. He allowed his first hit in the sixth inning, and looked in complete control through his start. With two outs in the eighth inning, the umpires ruled that Harvey hit Clint Robinson on the foot, although the replay was did not show his foot...

Murphy pulled players to give media ‘something to think about’

San Diego Padres interim manager Pat Murphy probably worked the assembled media in attendance of Wednesday night’s game against the New York Mets into a lather by making some strange bench moves during the team’s 7-3 win. And he admitted after the game he did so simply to mess with them. Murphy pulled both Matt...Read More The post Padres manager pulled players to give media...

End In Sight For Mets’ Colon

Another game, another Bartolo Colon torching leaving the Mets with a few questions. How long can the Mets go with Colon getting ripped every fifth game? Since they can’t trade him now, can they swap him out for Dillon Gee? Will they wait this out until Steven Matz is ready to come off the disabled list? COLON: Ripped again.

Mets Working on “Big Bat” Trade

One of the most entertaining — or infuriating, depending on your perspective — aspects of the trade deadline is the very slow way news leaks out, one tidbit after another.

Mets continue to act like a small-market team

The New York Mets have been one of the more active teams leading up to the trade deadline, trading for Juan Uribe, Kelly Johnson, and Tyler Clippard, but the Troy Tulowitzki-Jose Reyes/Jeff Hoffman trade between the Toronto Blue Jays and Colorado Rockies has raised questions about the moves New York hasn’t made.

Mets reliever Jenrry Mejia suspended 162 games for PEDs

Jenrry Mejia, what are you doing, man? The New York Mets players, coaches and executives are surely asking that very question as the reliever tested positive for the second time this year, thus drawing a 162-game suspension. Mejia had already missed the first 80 games of the season after failing a test for PEDs. As if that wasn’t astounding enough, the 25-year-old got dinged...

Exploring a potential Carlos Gomez trade

ESPN’s Jim Bowden earlier today proposed the Mets and Milwaukee Brewers make a trade that would send CF Carlos Gomez and RHP Neal Cotts to the Mets in return for CF Juan Lagares, RHP Rafael Montero, RHP Marcos Molina and OF Brandon Nimmo. The trade would give the Mets a much needed boost in center field, where Juan Lagares has been a less impactful fielder, making his .610 on-base...

Mets Use Depth To Get Tyler Clippard

Though the Mets might need a bat most of all, their acquisition of Tyler Clippard makes good sense. By fielding-independent numbers, their bullpen has been middle-of-the-road so far this year, and the returns of Jenrry Mejia and Bobby Parnell might not be enough to push this bullpen into a strength as the end of the […]
