Could He Do It?

Terry Collins Is Mad As Hell And He’s Not Gonna Take It Anymore

Poor Terry Collins. He seems like a manager who’s become totally fed up with how his team has performed as the season winds down. Before the game he had this to say: “I want to see some fighting in what’s left, I want to see some, we use the term loosely but I want to […]

Prospect Pulse: The Relievers

When next year’s Spring Training arrives, there will be some fierce competition for spots in the Mets bullpen. At this point, barring trade or injury, the only logical holdovers would be Bobby Parnell, Pedro Beato and Manny Acosta. Otherwise, it’s pretty wide-open.
