Terry Collins told reporters that Jon Niese will start in the season finale against the Brewers on Sunday. After his last start on Tuesday, Collins said that there was a strong possibility that Niese would be shutdown for the season based on different factors. Niese missed nearly two months of this season rehabbing from a partially torn rotator cuff in his left shoulder. Since his return on August 11, Niese is 5-2 with a 3.00 ERA […]
Who’s ready for another Mets offseason? Well like it or not, here it comes. This particular offseason has already got me feeling a little edgy compared to past ones since Sandy Alderson took the reins. I wasn’t really expecting much before and I knew we were dismantling and rebuilding even though Sandy would never say as much. However, this is the offseason I’ve been waiting for… This is the one where we’ve been conditioned to […]
I hope you all enjoyed my coverage of the Brooklyn Cyclones this summer. I certainly did! It was great to meet and interact with many of the team’s recent draft picks to see what’s in store for the future. And of course, Rich Donnelly is an awesome baseball mind, so it was great to hear his perspective each night. Below is a Q&A between myself and the MMO staff discussing the Cyclones’ season. It may […]
As the 2013 season draws to a close for the New York Mets, what can be taken away from their fifth-straight losing season is the emergence of a number of young talents ranging from the pitching mound to the bullpen; from home plate, to centerfield. Met-Legend Edgardo Alfonzo was once an up-and-coming prospect himself, becoming a premiere bat and a defensive wonder during the Amazin’s turn-of-the-century stretch of October runs from 1999-2000. When I asked […]
MLB Trade Rumors is reporting that Cuban prospect Jose Dariel Abreu has officially established residency in Haiti according to what a source told Jesse Sanchez of MLB.com. Essentially, Abreu has cleared the first hurdle toward signing with a major league team. He now has to file the proper paperwork with MLB and once he does that, he will be declared a free agent. The Red Sox, Rangers, Giants, Mets, White Sox, Pirates, and Marlins are all possible […]

Tonight Zack Wheeler takes on the team that drafted him for the second time this season. The first time the 23-year old faced the Giants, he was publicized as the “Robin” to the leading Cy-Young candidate and NL All-Star Game Starter Matt Harvey; perhaps unfairly so. Since that initial outing at AT&T against his former franchise; much has changed. Harvey and a pitching rubber between now and 2015 is in question, and Wheeler has taken […]
John Harper of the Daily News reports that it’s no secret the Mets would love to trade for Carlos Gonzalez, and one baseball executive with insight into the Rockies’ thinking says Colorado is likely to seriously consider offers for Gonzalez and even Troy Tulowitzki this winter as it looks to rebuild. However, the Rockies would be looking for a package built around young position players, as opposed to pitching, making it unlikely the Mets would be a […]
It’s been a long road back to the major leagues for Jeurys Familia this season. He last appeared with the Mets in the bigs on May 8th, then underwent surgery on June 5th to clean out a bone spur and loose bodies in his pitching elbow. While he was working to get himself back into shape, Adam Rubin of ESPN New York reported there was no expectation for Familia to make it back to the […]
