Leaving Collins’ Fate Up In The Air Can Blow Up In Sandy’s Face

Post Updated on 3/20 I caught this transcript on MetsBlog this morning. They were comments made by Sandy Alderson who was a guest on the New York Post’s baseball podcast. The subject was Terry Collins‘s lame duck status and the possibility of a contract extension in the future: “Well, I want Terry to be the […]

Harvey and d’Arnaud Give Mets A Glimpse Into Their Future

A few years from now, or perhaps in July, this battery could be a big deal. Matt Harvey and Travis d’Arnaud represent the Mets’ future, and today they provided a glimpse. Harvey, already in the rotation, gave up two runs in 5.1 innings and was backed by two hits and two runs scored by d’Arnaud in a […]

Wright, Santana, Murphy And Duda Among Mets’ Questions As Opening Day Looms

Here we are, two weeks from Opening Day and the Mets still have a myriad of questions that can’t be answered by Google. Perhaps they should get a Celebrity Apprentice from Trump to fill in the holes. Jon Niese was superb in yesterday’s loss to the Braves and we know he’ll get the ball that […]

Burke Continues To Stake Claim On Final Bullpen Spot

Yesterday, I pretty much concluded, in a post you can read below, that reliever Greg Burke has just about locked up one of the final spots in the Mets bullpen. In the 9-1 loss to the Tigers on Thursday, Burke was brought in to get a critical out against one of the best hitters in […]

Neeker’s 2013 National League Sleepers

Every team has them, one or two players who’ve had flashes of brilliance here and there but have never quite put it together. Those of us who’ve partaken in the Fantasy Baseball arts can tell you there’s nothing like taking a flier on a high upside kid who makes a splash in the big pool, […]

Inside The Mets’ Clubhouse; Past and Present

Good Saturday morning. A little talk in the clubhouse about Team USA losing last night to Mexico. The operative word being “little.’’ I’ve only been here a few days, but trust me on this one, after doing 20 some Spring Trainings the days are usually all alike. We’re usually in the clubhouse by 7:45 in […]

Mets Spring Wrap-up: Collins Not Worried About Santana, Cowgill Goes 3-for-4

This time, Terry Collins knew what Johan Santana was doing and seemingly both are on the same page, even though the left-hander was mum today on both his throwing and the death of Venezuelan president Hugo Chavez. After mugging with several friends on the Venezuelan WBC team, Santana long-tossed in the outfield, and followed that with several pitches off […]

Featured Post: Is It Time To Start Buying Into Sandy Alderson’s Plan?

Yes. That title is for real. We have been so busy ridiculing the man for his cost-cutting style of management, that we are not taking the time to take a step back and see the big picture. You could sit and watch the thirty minute episodes of Bob Ross’ show, which featured him painting, and […]

Mets Lose To Nats 6-4; Den Dekker Flashes Leather; Cowgill’s Got Game

Lucas Duda did not start tonight’s 6-4 exhibition game loss against Washington, and won’t be in the lineup tomorrow. Look for him Wednesday or Thursday. In his first two games, Duda went 0-for-7 with six strikeouts, and told reporters today, “we’re not going to hit the panic just yet.’’ The Mets will opt for extra work […]

It’s Parnell’s Time To Shine As He Takes Over Mets Closer Role

Updated by Joe D. According to Mike Puma of the NY Post, after telling reporters that Frank Francisco has been shut down due to inflammation in his right elbow, Mets manager Terry Collins told Puma that “he wants Bobby Parnell to take over as the team’s closer.” “We keep talking about 2014 … why not get […]
