METS RUMORS & GOSSIP

New York Mets: Fact or Fiction

Lucas Duda finished 22nd in the NL MVP voting last year. What can he do for an encore? The New York Mets are off to a hot start, as they have won their last six games. Sitting at 8-3, it is the first time the team has been five games over .500 since July, 2012. The offense has been mediocre at best, as they are 14th in the league in runs (45). As expected, the pitching has carried...

Mets Aim To Continue Streak Behind DeGrom

It is no secret I am not a fan of the New York Mets’ batting order, but as a baseball traditionalist I know this much, you don’t screw around with a hot streak and the Mets are going after their seventh straight win tonight against Miami. That means Curtis Granderson leading off, Travis d’Arnaud batting second and Juan Lagares seventh. The Mets have to feel good about number...

Circumstances Point To Gee Departure

The math adds up to the conclusion the New York Mets – two weeks into the season – are ready to move on from Dillon Gee. Gee gave the Mets the required innings in two unimpressive starts, but recent circumstances conspired to making it impossible for them to allow him time to work out his problems and fall into a groove. GEE: On thin ice. (Getty) GM Sandy Alderson finally realized...

Mets To Employ Six-Man Rotation For One Turn, Montero Would Return As Starter

The Mets activated infielder Danny Muno after promoting him from Triple-A Las Vegas, and to clear a spot on the roster for him, the team optioned starter turned reliever Rafael Montero to Triple A. Montero, who competed with Dillon Gee for the No. 5 starter position in spring training, failed to supplant Gee and started the regular season in the bullpen. He pitched 4 1/3 innings...

Collins Has Mets Playing Baseball Like It Oughta Be

This is Terry Time. This is Terry’s Team. As long as it keeps winning. In a column for the New York Post, writer Kevin Kernan credits Terry Collins for the Mets’ hot start and that now armed with a team with horses to win, the real Terry Collins has emerged. “This year, you are seeing more of the real Collins, when he’s managing to win games and holding his team to higher...

New York Mets: on a roll and balancing roster

Following a .500 road trip to begin the season, the New York Mets have returned home to Citi Field and shown fans that this is not the same team as in years past. They’ve won 5 straight games for the first time since 2013, sit alone in first place for the first time since 2012 and managed a sweep of archrival Chase Utley and the Phillies. And there’s more. There were some hard...

The Never-Ending Saga of Bartolo Colon

How much longer is the road going to be for Bartolo Colon? Many of us sitting here could have rationally assumed a surgical procedure in 2010, one which used “fat and bone marrow stem cells from Colon” injected back into his elbow, would have spelled the end. He didn’t throw a pitch that season but that was nothing new for the right-handed starter. From 2006–09, he didn’t...

The Mets are trying to overcome early season injuries

As the classic Queen song goes, “another one bites the dust.” This could also serve as the April refrain for the New York Mets. On Tuesday, third baseman David Wright was placed on the 15-day DL due to a strained hamstring. Wright joins the growing list of players for the Mets that are currently not contributing to the play on the field. While expectations for the Mets were...

Why I Admire Dillon Gee

There is a very likable quality to the Mets’ Dillon Gee, one that wants you pull for him to do well. He doesn’t have the obvious skill set as say, Matt Harvey. He also doesn’t have the obvious, sometimes, in-your-face demeanor of Harvey. However, Harvey is whom the public fawns over and Gee is taken for granted. Gee is what is good about sports, but on a different level. This...

The New York Mets have a chance to make an early statement

The Mets begin a four-game series tonight with the Miami Marlins to finish off their first go-round...

Curtis Granderson remains concerned about the lack of black players in professional baseball.

New York Mets: Wright likely headed to DL

Tuesday was probably one of the strangest days for the New York Mets. It’s true, they defeated the Philadelphia Phillies behind big days from Lucas Duda and Travis d’Arnaud and a home run from Daniel Murphy to go with 8 more strikeouts from an average Matt Harvey. The game also included 4 hit batters, a catcher’s interference, a challenge, a manager ejected and Anthony Recker...

Recapping Wilmer Flores’ rough first week as the starting shortstop

Heading into 2015 the Mets are full of expectations: growth in the pitching staff, the development of a core offense, and maybe even a playoff berth. There have been interesting developments through the first seven games including the fact that the Mets are only scoring runs when an error occurs, Jon Niese delivered his “first bad” start in ages, and Wilmer Flores has thus...

WATCH: Bartolo Colon drives in a run, helmet falls off

New York Mets pitcher Bartolo Colon isn’t exactly known for his amazing ability at the plate. As you have likely seen over the years, his stance leaves a lot to be desired. The husky veteran also seems to have some major issues with actually keeping his helmet on his head as he swings. While the helmet problem hasn’t resolved itself, Colon actually drove in a run in a real...

Do you have faith in Wilmer Flores and Juan Lagares?

In the offseason the Mets showed a lot of faith in Wilmer Flores and Juan Lagares. They showed faith in Flores by not acquiring a shortstop to compete with him for the starting job. And they showed faith in Lagares by trading away Matt den Dekker, the best choice to play center field if Lagares was ineffective. Remember just one year earlier, the Mets acquired Chris Young...
