Matz and deGrom May Combine To Replace Montero

So to sum it up, the Rafael Montero experiment failed. In 13.1 innings he walked 15 batters and allowed 15 hits, pitching to a 2.250 WHIP and a 8.10 ERA. Those numbers are obviously pretty terrible, so Terry needs to find a way to fill the gap he left in the rotation. With Steven Matz and Jacob […]

Mets Options to Replace Rafael Montero

After Monday night’s 8-1 loss to the Washington Nationals, Terry Collins stated the obvious when he said Rafael Montero wouldn’t get another start and was out of the rotation.

Fernando Salas Could Be 7th Inning Fixture

As September 1 was rapidly approaching, Sandy Alderson knew he needed to add a viable arm for a bullpen that has had inconsistencies and injuries throughout the 2016 season. Jim Henderson being overused and then succumbing to a DL stint due to bicep tendinitis comes to mind. Or Hansel Robles losing command and control in […]

Bartolo Colon: A Hunk Of Burning Love

Every great baseball season is sprinkled with so many profound and uplifting stories, some that even transcend the game itself.

Mets Need A Bat, Not A Bullpen Arm

Leading up to the trade deadline, most of the talk from inside the Mets organization and among media members has been that the Mets’ top priority is to add a bullpen arm. While it’s always good to have bullpen depth, using the team’s resources on an extra late-inning arm seems puzzling given the other holes […]

Mets Should Focus On Relievers Not Starters In Trade Deadline Deals

With names like Andrew Cashner, Rich Hill, Jon Niese, Jeremy Hellickson and Michael Pineda circulating as potential trade bait on or before the trade deadline, the Mets would be best served by bolstering their bullpen rather than seeking a starting pitcher to replace innings lost due to Matt Harvey’s season-ending surgery. The current Bartolo Colon, […]

Verrett’s Rotation Spot Appears Safe For Now

While Logan Verrett wasn’t dominant last night against the Phillies, but he kept the team in the game and gave them a chance to win. Verrett pitched six solid innings while allowing two runs and striking out four. But the Mets provided him with only two runs of support, and the bullpen yielded the game’s […]
