METS RUMORS & GOSSIP

New York Mets: injury update

The New York Mets may be leading their division by 6.5 games but it doesn’t mean that they are as strong as they could be. The Mets are still patiently awaiting the return of a few players from the disabled list. With September 1 just a few days away, and with it the expansion of the active roster, next week should see the return of at least some of those players. Steven Matz...

With the Season Winding Down, Mets Look like World Series Favorites

If you told any New York Mets fan in the offseason that their team would be in first place during the dog days of August, no one would have believed you, but that is the case. Entering Thursday, the Mets sit 6.5 games ahead of the Washington Nationals atop the National League East. And it’s not the same old story with the Mets. They’re finally hitting! In the month of August...

Matz Should Be Lefty Bullpen Solution

I’m throwing this out there, but perhaps the Mets’ lefty bullpen void could be filled by Steven Matz. I know GM Sandy Alderson and manager Terry Collins rejected that notion in spring training, but that was a long time ago and now we’re looking at the Mets as serious playoff contenders with one severe weakness – lack of a lefty reliever. Instead of diving into the six-man...

The New York Mets have THE POWER

The New York Mets since July 25: Clear the way, the New York Mets are absolutely steamrolling over everybody. It’s not even fair. Just start begging for mercy already. Skeletor can’t even stop them. They are literally putting up the best offensive numbers in the National League right now. Before July 25, they were dead last in runs scored, and since July 25, they are #1 at 6...

Mets Still Have Concerns

As good as the Mets have been, and they’ve been terrific lately, there remain issues that are surrounding them on their way to October. Several were exposed the past week in Baltimore and Denver, and now in Philadelphia. Fortunately, they were able to outslug their mistakes, and we haven’t seen that a lot with the Mets over the years. Here’s what they must address: COLLINS...

WATCH: Larry Bowa gets ejected, threatens Mets player

    Philadelphia Phillies bench coach Larry Bowa went ballistic on Tuesday night, and it appears his frustration was at least two days in the making. During the seventh inning of a 6-5 loss to the New York Mets, Phillies outfielder Jeff Francoeur jumped out of the dugout to protest after Mets reliever Hansel Robles tried to quick-pitch Darin Ruf as Ruf was still getting settled...

Homer-happy Mets offense goes from worst to first over past month

What a month it's been for the New York Mets - punctuated by their record-setting home run binge in Philadelphia on Monday night.A lineup that couldn't seem to get out of its own way and was the subject of widespread ridicule by Mets fans last month has been transformed from a punch line into a devastating unit that has propelled the team to a 5 1/2-game lead in the National League...

How Yoenis Cespedes saved the Mets from themselves

It all seemed to be coming together for the Mets. It looked like they had just traded for the kind of impact bat their lineup so desperately needed in the form of Carlos Gomez and that he would propel the pitching laden Metropolitans to a division championship. And then this happened: This kind of gaffe seemed typical of the Mets of the past ten years. An all-star caliber player...

The New York Mets are raining fire all over the MLB

What a night of baseball for the New York Mets. AGAIN. Absolutely unbelievable.

Mets' Verrett takes 'Matt who' approach in spot start for Harvey

Logan Verrett couldn't understand what all the fuss was about when he was tabbed to make Sunday's spot start in place of New York Mets ace Matt Harvey."Why's everybody freaking out?" Verrett jokingly asked Harvey on Friday. "Don't they know I'm a way better pitcher than you?"Pretty bold talk for a rookie who was already let go by two other teams this season and had never made a major...

Mets Minors: Eudor Garcia looking to become the heir to David Wright

Back in 2014, the Mets selected Eudor Garcia in the fourth round of the draft.  Garcia profiled as a first round talent but had flaws that held him from being drafted earlier.  Garcia’s biggest flaw is that he’s 5’11” and 225 Lbs.  He’s not a lithe and graceful infielder nor is he a giant powerful behemoth.  With his body profile the consensus opinion has Garcia shifting...

Eric Young Jr. and the need for speed

Over the past two seasons, the Mets got a healthy helping of Eric Young Jr. in the lineup, as he played in 191 games. When it was time for a raise, the Mets decided that they would roll the dice with Michael Cuddyer, Curtis Granderson and Juan Lagares in the outfield, and were hoping that Kirk Nieuwenhuis would be the backup outfielder. Nieuwenhuis struggled early on, and it became...

Logan Verrett looks to turn questionable start into a bigger role

The Mets are doing the right thing for the wrong reason Sunday when they give a start to Logan Verrett. Now, that’s better than doing the wrong thing for the wrong reason, like calling up a lefty reliever to go to an eight-man bullpen because their useless LOOGY makes their relief corps too thin. Still, it will be a good day for the Mets when they completely move away from hope...
