Matt Harvey Could Be Held Back Until Home Opener At Citi

Mets manager Terry Collins told Kevin Kernan of the New York Post that he is looking at Matt Harvey like Bruce Bochy looks at Madison Bumgarner. “He’s got the competitiveness of a stinkin’ bear. Matt and I just met a couple of days ago in New York and talked about how important it is for […]

2015 Breakout Candidate: Kirk Nieuwenhuis

Wouldn’t it be nice to have another offensive breakout performance in 2015 akin to what we saw from Lucas Duda this season? How amazing would it be to have back to back breakthrough seasons of that magnitude? Could the power-hitting right fielder we so desperately need already be on the roster? Is it possible? Kirk […]

Quietly, Gee Drops His Fifth Straight To A’s

It doesn’t feel like five starts since Dillon Gee‘s last victory which came over a month ago to the Atlanta Braves on July 9th! The man who earned the opening day start this year for the Mets is 4-6 with a 3.84 ERA but has now dropped his fifth straight start. The numbers aren’t as […]

Dillon Gee: “I felt like I was making my debut all over again.”

What a performance by right-hander Dillon Gee on Wednesday night in his return to the rotation after missing nearly two months to a strained right lat.

After A Slow Start, Granderson Has Quieted His Critics

I think it is safe to say that Curtis Granderson has been one of the most offensively productive players in the league since April 29th. Mets fans remember the slow start that Granderson got off too, which drew comparisons to Jason Bay from the harshly critical Mets Twitter community. In a recent article on ESPNNewYork.com, Adam Rubin noted that […]

It’s Not the Dimensions of the Park, It’s the Complexion of the Team

The question of whether the Mets need to bring in the walls at Citi Field is back on the menu again after a season-ticket holder raised the issue with Sandy Alderson during a Q&A session held on Friday. “Changing the ballpark is not a panacea for not hitting with men in scoring position,” Alderson said.
