METS RUMORS & GOSSIP

What’s Future Of Lagares With Mets?

Let’s assume the Mets succeed in signing Yoenis Cespedes to a contract extension. Then factor in Michael Conforto for a spot next year – you know he won’t make the Opening Day roster as a role player. LAGARES: Where does he fit? (AP) And, with Michael Cuddyer signed for one more year and Curtis Granderson for two, what does that mean for Juan Lagares? After his 2014 Gold...

The Mets in first place: Good for the Squawkers!

Jon is Eeyore, and I am Tigger. But what if Eeyore hassomething to be happy about?When it comes to baseball, I am a solipsist. (Squawker Jon would say that when it comes to pretty much everything, I am a solipsist, but no matter!) So I look at everything on whether it is going to be good for this blog. Ever hear the expression "Is it good for the Jews?" I look to see if it's good...

Gut Reaction: Mets 12, Marlins 1 (8/3/15)

The Mets blew the Marlins out of the water early on, as the offense provided plenty of runs for Bartolo Colon, and the veteran earned his 10th win of the season. Michael Conforto hit his first major league homer, which provided three runs in the second inning. Batting Conforto eighth should enable him to get some opportunities to drive in runs, and he took advantage of the situation...

JABO: The Return of Yoenis Cespedes

It has been argued that being the worst at something is as impressive as being the best. After all, both sides of a bell curve are equally proportional. Nothing like starting an article off with some distribution humor! But more germane to this, a baseball website, is that this is yet another way the Mets outfield is not impressive. They are not good to be sure, but also not the...

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...

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.

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 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...
