With Saturday’s loss, the Mets have clinched themselves a protected draft pick. However, it is starting to seem like this will be irrelevant. Reports on Friday indicated that the Mets do not plan on pursuing any of the top free agents, with the possible exception of Shin-Soo Choo, who will likely cost more than what the Mets seem ready to offer. The Mets were horrible this season, so you don’t need anything but common sense […]

Jhonny Peralta is now eligible to return to the Detroit Tigers’ active roster after serving his suspension for his part in the Biogenesis scandal. However, when he does come back it likely won’t be as a shortstop according to beat writers and he will begin a transition to left field. Peralta has never played the outfield in his 11-year major-league career, but the Tigers are confident that he has the instincts and skills to make the […]
The Mets have announced that David Wright will be activated from the 15-Day Disabled List prior to tonight’s game against the Philadelphia Phillies at Citizens Bank Park. Wright has been on the disabled list since August 3rd with a grade two tight hamstring strain. The Mets’ captain has hit 17 home runs at Citizens Bank Park during his career, the second-most in any visiting ballpark. (He has connected on 18 home runs at Atlanta’s Turner Field) Wright also has […]
As I speculated before the weekend, David Wright is indeed planning to return during the San Francisco Giants series beginning on Tuesday. Both Wright and Terry Collins staunchly defended their rationale in attempting to have the third baseman return from a strained right hamstring this season, as reported by Adam Rubin of ESPN New York. “It’s something that I’m against, personally,” Wright said Saturday regarding shutting things down for the season. “If the organization feels that […]
Terry Collins praised second baseman Daniel Murphy for staying in the lineup down the stretch while battling nagging issues, according to ESPN. Last night’s win over the Marlins was Murphy’s 145th game of the season, and he could play in 161 of the team’s 162 games this year. “Make no mistake, Dan’s beat up,” Collins said. “He plays so hard, he’s always beat up. He slides hard, he dives for balls. That takes its toll on the season. […]
In the third inning of last night’s loss to the Indians, third baseman Wilmer Flores grimaced in pain as he swung and threw his bat at the ball, prompting Keith Hernandez to say, “Ouch. That kid is really hurting. You can tell that ankle is still bothering him.” Flores has been slumping badly both at the plate and in the field since injuring his ankle last month. Yesterday, in my game notes I wrote: Well […]
The Mets (62-73) lost to the Nationals (69-67) by a score of 6-5 Sunday night at Nationals Park. Jon Niese took the hill against Ross Ohlendorf as the Mets sought to sweep Washington on the road. Jon was handed a 2-0 lead before throwing a pitch thanks to Daniel Murphy’s RBI double and an RBI single from Lucas Duda. Matt den Dekker padded the lead in the top of the 2nd with his first MLB […]
Terry Collins told reporters in San Diego, that Wilmer Flores has continued to show improvement on his injured ankle and that he performed some base-running drills before Friday’s game. After the game, Collins told reporters Flores did not suffer any setbacks and the 22-year-old should be able to play in tonight’s game. With the exception of a pinch-hit appearance Wednesday against the Dodgers, Flores has been out since Monday when he twisted his right ankle running the […]
