After Mets pitching prospect Steven Matz finished his outing against the Nationals on Thursday, general manager Sandy Alderson called it “extraordinarily unlikely” and “highly improbable” that Matz will make the Opening Day roster as a left-handed reliever.

Mets “Going With What We Got” In Bullpen

According to Kristie Ackert of the Daily News, the Mets placed less of a priority to acquire a veteran left-handed reliever “not because of money” but because as the team source put it, “we were confident with what we got.” That of course is a complete reversal from the team’s early offseason posture, when they […]

We Need To See More Of Fred Wilpon

What you didn’t expect was for Wilpon to talk with manager Terry Collins in his office for about 20 minutes after the game. Collins said Wilpon would be a regular presence during spring training.
