Suddenly, Gee Has Become The Mets’ Most Reliable Starter

There was something Sandy Alderson said during his interview on WFAN on Tuesday that made me laugh.

Wheeler’s Innings Clock Is Winding Down

Zack Wheeler’s season should consist of about 28 more innings, an insider told ESPN New York, and whether that gets Wheeler through the remainder of the season remains to be seen.

In his interview with Mike Francesa on WFAN, Mets GM Sandy Alderson said some things about Ruben Tejada that were very unflattering and I would say he basically called him lazy, aloof and unmotivated although not in so many words. “One of the problems with Ruben is it’s like pulling teeth,” Alderson said to describe […]
