3 Up, 3 Down: The Kids Are Alright

The Mets finished up their three game set against the Marlins with a 2-1 series victory last night. New York has an interesting parallel with their division rivals from Miami, in that both organizations have dwelled at the bottom of the NL East cellar for many years now, but through those years they also stockpiled […]

Alderson and Warthen Apologize For Ethnic Slur

The Mets issued statements on behalf of Sandy Alderson and pitching coach Dan Warthen, who used an ethnic slur while conversing with Daisuke Matsuzaka’s interpreter, Jeff Cutler, according to the Wall Street Journal. Here’s what occurred: “Jeff!” Cutler and I turned around. It was Dan Warthen, the Mets pitching coach. “I’m sorry I called you […]

Dice-K Still Remains In The Mix For The Mets

While there was no truth to last evening’s report that the Mets had reached an agreement with Daisuke Matsuzaka on a minor league deal – a report that was refuted by the Mets – Andy Martino of the Daily News writes that the Japanese righty still remains in the mix for the Amazins. “The Mets […]

Upon Further Review: The Mets Coaching Staff

When the Mets renewed Terry Collins‘ contract at the end of September once the season had concluded, it was also announced that the entire coaching staff would return as well. This announcement didn’t come as a huge shock, but it was conceivable due to the fact that the crew has been the same since the […]

Are Mets Still Interested In Bringing Dice-K Back?

Earlier this week I suggested things could heat up in the Hot Stove and this might be the time for the New York Mets to strike. And, I didn’t mean Prince Fielder, or Brandon Allen for that matter. Mets general manager Sandy Alderson agreed the other day things could get warm, but wouldn’t say how close he’d get […]

Is It Time For A Mike Pelfrey Encore?

Could the New York Mets’ desperate need for starting pitching lead them back to Mike Pelfrey? Seriously. Should GM Sandy Alderson decided there’s not much in the free-agent market, and with the Twins moving faster than the Mets regarding Bronson Arroyo, there are probably worse ideas than re-signing Pelfrey. Pelfrey, released by the Twins, made $4 million last […]

Did The Mets Fix Dice-K Only To Lose Him?

Even knowing that the New York Mets would not have Matt Harvey next season, there was a slight glimmer of optimism they might have enough to piece together a rotation and spend elsewhere. That glimmer is fading. Pitching coach Dan Warthen fixed Daisuke Matsuzaka’s long and cumbersome delivery, complete with a hitch. With a faster delivery, Matsuzaka showed he could […]

Matt Harvey And The Velocity Trap

Matt Harvey And The Velocity Trap

Wouldn’t it be great if Matt Harvey wasn’t really injured? If it was just some sort of minor strain that was blown way out of proportion by Dan Warthen, Ray Ramirez and “Dr. James Andrews?” A coaching staff conspiracy if you will? In lieu of imposing hard innings limits on Harvey and Zack Wheeler perhaps […]
