METS RUMORS & GOSSIP

WATCH: Mets get inside-the-park HR after OF flips over wall

It’s all coming up Mets. During Wednesday night’s game with the Phillies, Ruben Tejada hit a sinking liner down the right field line. Domonic Brown charged the ball, misplayed it, and ended up flipping over a wall up the right field line, allowing Tejada to coast his way around the bases. Brown would stay in the game at the time for the Phillies, but was pulled two innings...

Mets Stay With Niese; Maybe A Good Thing Afterall

On second thought, maybe sticking with Jon Niese could be a good move. After Niese was shelled Tuesday night by the Phillies, I suggested the Mets’ best strategy would be to skip Niese Monday in Washington in favor of Steven Matz and stay with Noah Syndergaard Saturday in Miami. My reasoning is the Washington game is more important to the Mets’ immediate pennant pursuit than...

Terry Collins Needs An Immediate Reevaluation Of His Bullpen Management

  On July 25 this year, the New York Mets manager Terry Collins had seen enough.  The Mets were a laughing stock on offense, fielded a lineup dotted with minor leaguers and castoffs and the efforts of the best starting rotation in baseball were largely being wasted. That was the date that Collins put his players on notice. In an interview with reporters before the game, Collins...

By the numbers: Matt Harvey vs Jacob deGrom

In a day and age where Sabermetrics runs the game of baseball, numbers are the easiest way to compare two players to one-another. Usually, fans of a team would compare one of their players to one on another ball club, but is important to compare teammates as well. Going into the 2015 season, Matt Harvey was coming off of Tommy John’s Surgery and was predicted by many to be...

Mets Minors: Mets Are Sending Three Players To The AFL

New York Mets: Numbers Never Lie

After beating the Philadelphia Phillies ten straight times, the New York Mets finally came back to earth in a 14-8 brutal loss. The offense was clearly there, with Yoenis Cespedes hitting two absolute monsters of home runs, but it was the pitching that kept the victory out of reach. Jon Niese struggled with six earned runs in only five innings pitched, but that wasn’t even the truly frustrati...

Mets Should Skip Niese Before Syndergaard

It’s now three stinkers in a row for Jon Niese, and if Mets manager Terry Collins is considering skidding Noah Syndergaard this weekend, perhaps the smarter play would be to bypass the veteran left-hander instead. NIESE: Next start should be skipped. (AP) Niese was rocked in his second straight start by the Phillies Tuesday night, giving up six runs on seven hits in five innings...

MMO Mailbag: Extension For Murphy Or Cespedes?

Greg H. asks… If the Mets could keep and sign only one, who would you give an extension to: Daniel Murphy or Yoenis Cespedes? Connor replies… This is a really difficult question when you consider all of the moving pieces involved. Clearly, at least this year, Cespedes has been a drastically more valuable player than […]

Curtis Granderson…Moon Landing Truther

In professional sports, it doesn’t take much nowadays to be labeled a “nice guy”…just stay out of the papers and don’t make headlines. To that end, Curtis Granderson is a member of the “nice guy” fraternity. He’s kept his nose clean and a couple years ago, even helped fund a baseball stadium being built in Chicago. So, when asked about his nice guy image, the New...

Bumping Colon From Playoff Roster Not Good Idea

One of the foregone conclusions of the Mets’ playoff push is that once they get there, they won’t have a role for Bartolo Colon. Conventional wisdom has Matt Harvey, Jacob deGrom, Noah Syndergaard and Jon Niese in the rotation. Although there has been some silliness reported about putting Syndergaard in the bullpen and Steven Matz in the rotation. COLON: Don’t skip him from...

JABO: The Mets Bullpen Gains a Pitch(er)

With the news this past weekend that (former) Diamondbacks reliever Addison Reed was headed to the Mets, New York may have finally secured the missing piece to their bullpen: a steady seventh-inning reliever to bridge the gap between the talented starting rotation and the eighth- and ninth-inning guys, Tyler Clippard and Jeurys Familia. This was a forward-looking move by the front...

Mets Minors: Six reasons to be happy with Desmond Lindsay

The Mets signed Michael Cuddyer in the offseason to a seemingly modest two-year deal that, in turn, cost them their first round pick in the 2015 Amateur Draft.  While Cuddyer hasn’t worked out fantastically, the Mets seem to have made the most out of their second round pick. The Mets selected Desmond Lindsay 53rd overall in this year’s draft and some fans may have scratched...

Big Papi crushes Syndergaard pitch for 494th homer

Noah Syndergaard went 5 2/3 innings without allowing a run Sunday afternoon. That changed in a hurry when David Ortiz stepped to the plate. Ortiz sent a 97-mph Syndergaard fastball screaming off the second deck at Citi Field for a two-run homer. The home run was the 494th of Ortiz’s career. He now sits all alone in 27th on the all-time home runs list and needs six over the...

Terry Collins didn't challenge double out of fear of HR

New York Mets manager Terry Collins decided against challenging David Ortiz’s pinch-hit, ninth-inning double Saturday. Why? Because giving up a double is better than giving up a home run. Collins told reporters Sunday in New York, via ESPN.com, that he was unsure whether Ortiz’s wall-ball two-bagger — which came during a 3-1 win for the Boston Red Sox — actually cleared...

Developing A Plan For The Mets To Keep Yoenis Cespedes

In a final Hail Mary just shy of the trade deadline, Sandy Alderson and the New York Mets pulled off a deal to nab Yoenis Cespedes, who arguably became the most dynamic player to put on a Mets uniform during the Citi Field era.  The Mets drew positive reviews in landing Cespedes without relinquishing major league-ready talent or any of their prized pitchers. However, the...

Gut Reation: Red Sox 3, Mets 1 (8/29/15)

Only three Mets collected hits today, which has been a far cry from how things have been going. Even with a loss yesterday, the Mets still were able to score four runs on eight hits. It was just an unfortunate day where the team couldn’t seem to get anything going against Joe Kelly and the Boston Red Sox, who have been playing rather well of late. To add a little salt on the wound...

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...
