The One Where Lucas Duda Almost Killed A Guy

Noah Syndergaard strokes his third hit of the day, a single for which he was cruelly robbed of an RBI when Tim Teufel put up the stop sign. They say a bad day at the ballpark is better than a good day at work. I guess that would make a good day at the ballpark better than anything else on earth. I’ll whole-heartedly go with that. This was a notable day for me for two reasons...

Shocker! There is actually some Mets talk today on Subway Squawkers!

Since Squawker Jon is very busy with a real-life work project, there hasn’t been much Mets talk in this blog lately. Heck, we’ve had more “Mad Men” talk lately than Mets talk! (Speaking of which, click here to hear a drunken Don Draper sing “Meet the Mets.” If I were in charge of the Yankees big-screen entertainment, I would have that clip played at the next Subway Series...

New York Mets, Wilmer Flores prevail 5-4

Wilmer Flores What could have been a gut-wrenching home loss for the Mets turned into celebration Tuesday night as the New York Mets prevailed 5-4 against the Philadelphia Phillies.

Flores Not Mets’ Biggest Flaw

Critics of the Mets, and there are many, are missing the point when it comes to Wilmer Flores. I just read somewhere of a list of the Mets’ biggest flaws, and of course, Flores is right up there as they point to his errors. FLORES: Comes through in clutch. (AP) Unquestionably, Flores is a flawed player, but who isn’t? He’s in the lineup for his bat, plain and simple. That’s...

New York Mets still searching for answer at third base

Allow me to present you with a question. What would the Avengers be without Captain America? Cap serves as the moral compass of the team as well as being a born leader. Who else could control the larger than life personalities and egos on the team? Who else would stop Thor from going rogue and eating lunch during a mission? You’re probably wondering why I’m talking about the...

All The Numbers Add Up To Good News For Harvey

Matt Harvey topped out at 96 mph., Saturday when the Mets were routed in Pittsburgh. That velocity belied manager Terry Collins‘ guess of a tired arm, which often it the first choice of those who really don’t know. So far, everything adds up to just a bad start. HARVEY: Encouraging news. (AP) Harvey, who is coming off a career-worst seven-run hammering at the hands of the Pirates...

MLB Week 7 Recap: Those poor Mets; Hamilton set to return

There’s at least one new face at the top of the standings as teams are starting to experience the hot and cold that comes with a very long season. The Tampa Bay Rays moved ahead of the New York Yankees for first place in the AL East, and the New York Mets surrendered the top spot in the NL East to the Washington Nationals after two unsettling injury problems to key players last...

Collins, Alderson Continue To Guess At Mets’ Physical Ailments

Just because we’re in a world where immediate answers are demanded, it doesn’t mean Mets manager Terry Collins is obligated to improvise with one on Matt Harvey. After Harvey’s worst major league outing Saturday in Pittsburgh, without having benefit of a medical exam, Collins suggested to reporters the pitcher might have a “dead arm.’’ While this may or not be true, I’m...

Mets Minors: Gavin Cecchini continues to impress offensively

The most unappreciated prospect for the Mets right now is Gavin Cecchini. It seems odd to type that since most of my comments since the day the Mets drafted him have been less than flattering. But the simple truth is that since the end of last season, Cecchini has been putting up tremendous numbers that are not a fluke. Cecchini got an undeserved promotion to Hi-A last year after...

Mets' Harvey reportedly won't need medical exam after poor outing

New York Mets ace Matt Harvey might be dealing with apparent arm fatigue after coming off his shortest outing of his career, according to Mets manager Terry Collins. "I have not talked to Matt yet, but it looks like he might be going through some of that dead arm stuff that sometimes happens. This might help him to have an extra day to get him back on track," Collins, referring to...

The Mets Offense Is Broken

Over the first few weeks of the season, the Mets’ pitching was spectacular. It kept the team in the game every night, allowing the offense to do just enough to win. During the Mets’ 11-game winning streak in April, they won only once by more than four runs. However, you can’t count on a pitching staff to be that good for an entire season. There are going to be rough patches...

Dodgers & Mets Should Be Trade Partners

It’s been well documented the needs of the Los Angeles Dodgers – to bolster its starting staff behind Greinke and Kershaw – especially with the news of Hyun-Jin Ryu’s injury and to augment their back end rather than relying on Carlos Frias or Mike Bolsinger for the whole season (although they’ve both been very good to this point). They also can’t rely on the continued...

Eric Campbell: Soup’s Too Cold

David Wright has been diagnosed with spinal stenosis, which varies in its severity. While doctors are hoping it can be alleviated with rest in David’s case, it has also been known to be more severe, as it caused Lenny Dykstra to end his career at the age of 35. Whatever the case may be, oh Captain our Captain will be out for a while longer, leaving the Mets weighing their options...

New York Mets: as team gets healthier what’s the next move?

The New York Mets have been decimated by injuries for most of this season so far. Despite the losses of some of the most important members of the team, the Mets have managed to put together a solid season, with a record of 24-18 and only half a game out of first place in the division despite an offense that goes through lengthy cold spells. Though the absences have been lengthy...

Bartolo Colon reached base on an infield chopper

Bartolo Colon is a notoriously terrible (yet amusing) hitter. And this at bat resulted in a notoriously terrible swing from Colon. Yet, the stars aligned on this chopper off the plate. Yadier Molina couldn’t field it cleanly. Colon reached base safely. The angels began to sing. A Bartolo Colon infield single would melt the Internet, but alas, this play went down as an error on...

Should the Mets trade Jon Niese over Dillon Gee?

Throughout this career, Jon Niese has been nothing short of an effective left-handed pitcher for the New York Mets. With a career winning percentage aournd .500, Niese currently finished only two of his eight total seasons with more losses than wins. Niese is also the only lefty in the Mets’ starting rotation, but with Steven Matz on his way up to the majors, Niese may begin...

On the Daniel Murphy infield screw-up

“I should not be by home plate, ideally,” said Murphy, who hit a two-run homer, accounting for the Mets’ only runs of the forgettable evening, and upping his team-leading RBI total to 22. “I was watching Reynolds over there. With the base open, I thought they may try that. When he broke, I broke. It was the wrong play.” Collins said: “There are times that players try...
