Terry Collins Is On The Hot Seat

Ken Rosenthal of FoxSports.com shares his take on Terry Collins and what he feels is an unrealistic expectation by Mets brass that the Mets are a 90 win team. Rosenthal says Collins was handed a roster laden with holes by Sandy Alderson and that he has put unfair pressure on his manager to get the […]

Steven Matz Makes Grapefruit League Debut

You’ve heard the name before, but 2013 was the first real look at the Mets’ LHP prospect Steven Matz due to him missing significant time recovering from arm injuries. I recently named him as my Mets’ pitching prospect to watch in 2014, as he seems to be on a path to be named a top-five […]

Mets On Tap: Syndergaard To Start Against Braves

One of the bright spots for the New York Mets this spring is pitching prospect Noah Syndergaard, who is coming off a two-inning, five-strikeout performance in last Thursday’s intrasquad game. Today, he’ll face the Atlanta Braves at the Disney complex near Orlando. “I kind of shocked myself a little bit,’’ Syndergaard said of his intrasquad outing. […]

The Mets currently have 26 non-roster invitees in camp, according to mets.com. The list consists of 15 pitchers, 2 catchers, 6 infielders, and 3 outfielders.

Mets Evaluator Says Syndergaard Reminds Him Of 19-Year Old Gooden

March 1 I just wanted to quickly update this post on Syndergaard with something Mike Puma tweeted last night. Syndergaard’s performance opened eyes. “What I saw yesterday, he’s Dwight Gooden when he was 19 years old,” a NYM talent evaluator said. Hat tip to srt. Also, it’s amazing how this morning there are no less […]

Noah Syndergaard, God of Thunder

One of my favorite Mets beat writers is Anthony DiComo who always finds a way to mix in some well-written and insightful player profiles along with his non-stop comprehensive coverage of the team. Last night, I came across a very good read he wrote on Noah Syndergaard, who has been one of the most heavily profiled […]

With Improved Control, Leathersich Could Become A Late Inning Star

John Harper of the NY Daily News writes that lefty reliever Jack Leathersich‘s live stuff and deceptive delivery could make him a late-inning star, if he solves his control issues. Harper compares Leathersich’s control to ‘Wild Thing” Mitch Williams, and calls him the Mets’ most intriguing pitching prospect. In his three seasons moving through the Mets organization, Leathersich […]

Reliever Adam Kolarek Could Make A Good Impression

He’s a dark horse of sorts at the Mets spring training complex in Port St. Lucie. With so much attention fixed on young Met pitching guns, a list that includes Noah Syndergaard, Rafael Montero, Jacob deGrom, and Cory Mazzoni, this tall left-handed relief specialist doesn’t command much hype. Yet, don’t be surprised if by the […]
