Mets catcher Travis d’Arnaud will begin his rehab assignment tonight for Advanced-A St. Lucie and according to Terry Collins, he could be ready to return from the DL next week. “I don’t think he’ll catch seven days, but I’d like to get him seven games of worth of at-bats to get him to 20-25 before […]

A Day In The Life Of Sandy and Terry

Sandy Alderson had a lot to say on Thursday before the Mets were defeated by the Dodgers 3-0 at Citi Field. It was the MLB-leading 11th shutout loss of the season for the Mets. Terry Collins on the other hand, was a man of few words. You kind of had a sense it was going […]

The Potential Metropolitan Lineup In Perspective

I am under the impression that anyone who thinks there is a possibility of the Metropolitans bringing in Justin Upton, Carlos Gomez or dare I say Troy Tulowitzki before the trade deadline is delusional beyond belief.

Despite The Naysayers, Mets Have Been Fun and Exciting To Watch

I don’t know about you my fellow Mets fans, but I’m pretty happy with how the season has gone so far. I mean if you had asked me back in March if I would take being two games out of first place and one game out of the wild card at the All-Star break, my […]

Terry Collins Deserves A Lot Of Credit

I thought this was pretty funny and worth sharing with you. Mike Vaccaro of the New York Post sheepishly sneaked the following into his Kirk Nieuwenhuis article. “There is a small corollary to Nieuwenhuis’ big day, and there is probably a segment of Mets fans who will want to skip ahead five paragraphs and look […]

Nero Continues To Fiddle As Rome Burns

The backsliding continues. These losses are getting tougher and tougher to take. Last night’s 1-0 defeat was particularly painful because we wasted yet another incredible pitching performance. It’s become the narrative for this team. I don’t know who these guys are anymore. What is this team and what are they prepared to do to win? […]

In-House Options Remain The Best Bet For Mets Offense

If you told most Mets’ fans during the long, cold, winter recess between October and the start of spring training that halfway through the upcoming season their team would sit within a few games of first place in the division, most would be thrilled.

Should Mets Extend Murphy A Qualifying Offer?

With the Mets’ hitting woes continuing on Tuesday night, does it make sense to extend Murphy a qualifying offer during the offseason?

Duda And Cuddyer Are Struggling To Produce

During the just concluded Mets road trip that included a seven game losing streak, the team received very poor production from Lucas Duda or Michael Cuddyer. While many of the lineup’s struggles could be blamed on injuries, the middle of the order is simply failing to step up during the absences of David Wright and […]
