New York Mets: deGrom and Colon return this weekend

The New York Mets are struggling to retain relevance as they head into Los Angeles for a three game series with the first place Dodgers this weekend. The good news is that they will get two of their starting pitchers back. Jacob deGrom is set to return from the DL to start on Saturday and hopes continue his string of good pitching. Bartolo Colon will return from his native Dominican...

It’s time to send Bartolo Colon to the AL West

Injuries in professional sports are always tragic. Some are obviously worse than others (Bo Jackson for instance) and no one ever wants to see someone get hurt doing their job to the best of their ability. However, one can never forget that professional sports are a business at their roots and everything is utilized to create angles towards success. On Wednesday, Garret Richards...

Brooklyn Cyclones to wear 'Slime' jerseys on '90s Night'

The Brooklyn Cyclones are taking the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge to new heights. The viral challenge has taken the Internet by storm this summer with buckets of icy water being dumped on heads in order to raise awareness for ALS. The Cyclones — the New York Mets’ short-season Single-A affiliate — put a new twist on the challenge. Instead of ice water, the Cyclones used “slime”...

Colon Was Never Placed On Waivers

I hate to say I told you so, but much as I speculated on August 1, the Mets never placed Bartolo Colon on waivers as many had considered a foregone conclusion. Joel Sherman of the NY Post confirmed as much. There were assertions made that Sandy Alderson was willing to give away Colon to any claiming team just to get the salary relief and with no players coming back to the Mets....

Wright Still Frustrated, Alderson Says He’s Handling It Well

David Wright went 0-for-4 in yesterday’s finale against the Athletics, and is just 1-for-17 in his last five games while batting .268 this season. In an interview with the Rockland Times, Wright said: “No one is happy with the position we are in” and the team has missed opportunities to win games they should have won, but the team has young players “learning on the job...

Lucas Duda blasts Athletics, then becomes talk of town as Mets win 8-5

Normally, Lucas Duda just carries a big stick and lets that do the talking for him. The Mets first baseman is an extremely quiet person who seems uncomfortable talking about himself. Wednesday, however, Duda not only carried the Mets with his bat, but made a big statement — for himself — as well. Duda crushed a three-run homer to lead the Mets to an 8-5 win over the A’s at...

Mets Injury Update: Jacob deGrom, Kirk Nieuwenhuis, Jenrry Mejia, Dana Eveland

The New York Mets look set to get NL Rookie of the Year candidate Jacob deGrom back on Saturday, with manager Terry Collins telling reporters, including Marc Carig of Newsday, that deGrom was on course to return from the DL and start then. The news isn't so good for several other Mets players, as Kirk Nieuwenhuis, Jenrry Mejia and Dana Eveland have all been sidelined lately...

Injured Mets are putting the future at risk

It’s obvious. Both Jenrry Mejia and David Wright are playing hurt. While they are proving their commitment to the game and to their teammates and fans, they are taking a giant risk and putting the 2015 season on the line. 2015 is all but the year everyone in the front office pointed to as the year where the Mets return to contention. Matt Harvey will be back. All of the top pitching...

What does the rest of the season hold for the Mets

The Mets are more than 10 games out of first place in the NL East and far enough out of the Wild Card that it will be a miracle if they can claim a spot.  Their offense has been slacking all season and the bullpen is an inconsistent mess.  Of course, the young players have succeeded in their roles and the veterans have been great role models for them.  But let’s think back to...

New York Mets offense sets records in futility

The New York Mets are headed on the road after a very disappointing home stand. They were swept in three games by the Washington Nationals and split a 4 game series with the Chicago Cubs. To make matters worse, the Mets matched their own futile mark-set in 2004- of going five consecutive games with four or fewer hits. This futility is not a new development. Ever since the the All...

Lucas Duda emerging as the future of the Mets

Lucas Duda – Photo Credit – Chris Swann   Let’s face it, the 4th place New York Mets haven’t been a good team since two consecutive September collapses in 2007 and 08′. They have been rebuilding — although they might not admit it, since that time. Through all of these tough times, they have watched players like Johan Santana deteriorate due to injuries, Jose Reyes leave...

Just when you think Hollywood has run out of original ideas…comes this. According to Variety, John Lee Hancock, director and co-screenwriter of the award-winning “The Blind Side” and 2002’s baseball feature “The Rookie”, is all set to bring former big leaguer Lenny Dykstra’s life to the silver screen. I applaud the idea (and would probably go see it… I’ve actually...
