Last Saturday, Terry Collins told reporters that he would start giving center fielder Juan Lagares some starts against righthanded pitching. Three games and three righthanded starting pitchers later, Lagares still sits idly on the bench.

Matt Harvey’s Got Liquid Nitrogen Running Through His Veins

I hardly agree with anything Terry Collins says – except on the rare occasions when he quotes me.

If we scored him some runs, he’d be 9-0.” Harvey, who starts this afternoon’s game against […]

Juan Lagares To Finally See Some Extended Play

With center field prospect Matt den Dekker still a long way from returning from the DL (read more here), and Rick Ankiel now hitting only .218 with a .286 on-base for the Mets, Terry Collins will look to give rookie Juan Lagares some extended play.

Collins Pulling Gee Was A Mistake That Didn’t End Up Hurting The Team

Updated with thoughts by Joe D. on 5/31 When Terry Collins removed Dillon Gee in the eighth inning last night after registering one out, I like everyone else who were interacting on Twitter busted a gasket.
