Wheeler Shines In Mets Loss

There weren’t many positives to come out of the Mets 2-1 loss to the Pardes on Sunday, except for how Zack Wheeler shined. For the fourth straight game the right hander registered a quality start, throwing six strong innings, while only allowing one run. Unfortunately for Wheeler, he was subjected to another poor offensive performance by his teammates. Wheeler has […]

David Wright Takes Night Shift As Barber

In an article on ESPN.com, Adam Rubin noted a funny incident that happened in the Mets clubhouse on Sunday. Apparently Jacob deGrom hit a ball while taking batting practice that just missed hitting David Wright who was stretching on the field. As payback, the Mets captain snuck up on deGrom with a pair of scissors and cut a lock […]

The Significance of Carlos Torres: The Man with the Rubber Arm

Should The Mets Move Daniel Murphy?

I have been listening to sports radio, reading Mets Twitter, and reading articles for the past couple days as the trade deadline gets closer and closer. I keep hearing the same notion expressed by Mets fans– if the Mets trade Murphy, it indicates an unwillingness to pay good players money to keep them in New […]

Dueling Philosophies: Collins Says Mets Won’t Give Up Pieces To Help Other Teams

Sometimes I wonder if Terry Collins and the front office are on the same page. More often than not, it seems the Mets skipper operates in his own parallel universe doing his own thing, while the rest of the organization carries on without him in lockstep with Sandy Alderson’s agenda and plan for the future.

Should Mets and Cubs Swap Struggling Stud Prospects?

As you probably already know, the Cubs and A’s pulled off a blockbuster trade that sent Jeff Samardzija and Jason Hammel to Oakland in return for a package of young players highlighted by shortstop Addison Russell.

Noah Syndergaard, who was on the disabled list with a sprained left shoulder, made his return for the 51s last night and didn’t fare very well. The right-hander pitched just four innings, allowing four runs on seven hits while striking out three and walking one. Syndergaard, who is widely regarded as the Mets top prospect, […]
