METS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Assessing Trade Value Of Jon Niese

With the emergence of Steven Matz, expect the Mets to ratchet up their intent to trade from their pitching depth to bolster their anemic offense. The Mets would dearly like to find a taker or two for Jon Niese and Bartolo Colon on the major league level; Dillon Gee in the minors; and Rafael Montero, who has spent much of the season on the disabled list. NIESE: What is his value...

Fantasy Roundup: A Grand Bounceback

Everybody, please welcome Curtis Granderson back to fantasy relevance! The 34-year-old won’t have you mistake him for his days with the Yankees when he was a threat to hit 40 home runs every season, but he’s improved his results from previous years to the extent that he’s ownable in most fantasy formats. That continued in recent games with a four home run week, two of which...

Steven Matz’s historical debut for the New York Mets

When the New York Mets called up top left-handed pitching prospect Steven Matz earlier this week, they thought they were getting a stud pitcher who could help them be successful in their quest to have an unorthodox 6-man rotation. Today, the 24 year old out of New York proved he is more than just a great arm for the Mets’ rotation. Matz did pitch a solid 7.2 innings against the...

On Friday, he hit his 12th home run which led helped the Mets to a narrow 2-1 win over the Reds at Citi Field.

On Curtis Granderson batting leadoff for the Mets

They say home run hitters typically get them in bunches. Those of us who remember Dave Kingman sadly will recall that he blasted five homers in the seven games before he was hurt back in 1976, ending his best chance to make a run at Roger Maris. Well, right now Curtis Granderson has hit five homers in his last seven games – if you’re ready to count Saturday’s suspended...

Mets Now Eye Tuesday For Daniel Murphy To Return

Infielder Daniel Murphy, who was initially expected to return from the disabled list this weekend, is now expected to return on Tuesday, Terry Collins told reporters on Saturday. While playing third base, Murphy went 2-for-4 on Saturday with a double and two RBI for High-A St. Lucie. Over his last two rehab games he is 6-for-9 with three doubles, two runs scored, and four RBI. “We’re...

Mets’ slide may get Terry Collins fired, but team isn’t good

Well, at least the Mets didn’t have a winless road trip. That’s probably the best takeaway from Thursday’s 2-0 victory over the Brewers, which mercifully ended a seven-game losing streak and avoided the indignity of losing all eight games of a road spin through Toronto, Atlanta and Milwaukee. However, salvaging one victory puts just a speck of shine on what has been a...

A First Look at Steven Matz

The Mets have an embarrassment of riches in their starting rotation. Jacob deGrom has seemingly become one of the best pitchers in baseball, and Matt Harvey has pitched very well in his first half-season since returning from injury. Behind them, Noah Syndergaard has shown flashes of dominance over his first eight starts in the majors, […]

The State of Juan Lagares’ Defense

Among the many complains of Mets fans at the moment is that the defense hasn’t been doing enough to support a pitching staff that carries the burden of trying to do everything. It stands to reason, if you’re going to be built first and foremost around run prevention, you’d want to do as much as […]

DeGrom Doesn’t Erase Issues Surrounding Mets

As great as Jacob deGrom was for the Mets Thursday, one lone start is not enough to create the perception of them as a playoff team. DeGrom’s eight scoreless innings enabled the Mets to beat Milwaukee, 2-0, at Miller Park, but did nothing to diminish the growing number of questions swirling around his team. DE GROM: Brilliant Thursday. (AP) The Mets were 36-30 when their road...

New York Mets set to promote top prospect Steven Matz, will go back to six-man rotation

The New York Mets already have a starting rotation filled with young talent in the likes of Matt Harvey, Noah Syndergaard and Jacob deGrom. However, according to some scouts, the best may have just been called up. On Thursday, it was announced that the Mets plan to promote left-hander Steven Matz from Triple-A Las Vegas. He is set to make his major league debut on Sunday against...

New York Mets: infield realignment coming

Everyone and their mother knows about the New York Mets’ injury troubles. It’s forced the Mets to play around with their infield alignment with Ruben Tejada being the primary mover, getting some time at third base, second base and the occasional game at shortstop. Most recently, Tejada has been playing almost everyday at third base as a result of Daniel Murphy‘s absence. However...

The Mets and the boring approach

The Mets have lost seven games in a row. It’s never a good time to lose seven games in a row, but a particularly bad time is when the rival Nationals decide to win five games in a row. So it is that the Mets have ceded control of the National League East, falling perilously […]

New York Mets: Sandy Alderson and his New York mess

Recent road games for the New York Mets have been uneventful for the metropolitan franchise. Within the last seven road outings this month, the Mets trudged to a sloppy 0-7 record as they fell to second place in the National League East, behind the Washington Nationals. At the moment, a 36-37 record is not something to be worried about, but as the team heads into July with match...

Collins Must Manage From His Gut Even If Alderson Doesn’t Like It

All the goodwill the Mets fostered during their 11-game winning streak is gone, vanished like a possible Jacob deGrom victory because of a faulty bullpen and no hitting. It faded along with the Mets’ eight-game lead over the Nationals, which is now a 3.5-game deficit. Sure, the Mets could regroup but what are their chances, but what are the odds?

The ship is sinking quickly for the New York Mets

About a week ago, things were looking pretty good for the New York Mets. They had just come off of a 3-2 win over the Toronto Blue Jays, putting their record at 36-30, sitting in first place in the NL East. Since that point, everything has seemingly come crashing down for the Mets, as they have lost seven straight games. The Blue Jays took the last game of that four game home-at...

Rumored Baez for Niese deal could work for Mets

Bear with me for a moment, but let’s imagine the Mets are not in a deep freefall with no end in sight. Let’s assume they didn’t cough up an 11-0 streak and could hit their way out of a paper bag. Pretend the New York Mets are legitimate playoff contenders this season. Better isn’t it? Unfortunately, we’ve still got a quandary on our hands. The Mets have way too much starting...

What should the Mets do with Jenrry Mejia?

Remember earlier this season when fans were wondering who the Mets closer would be as the season progressed? The team started the season with Jenrry Mejia as the closer, Jeurys Familia as the setup man, and Bobby Parnell was bound to come off the disabled list. However, Major League Baseball suspended Mejia for testing positive for using a performance-enhancing drug, Stanozolol...
