Mets Minute: Jenrry Mejia and Juan Lagares

Dueling Philosophies: Collins Says Mets Won’t Give Up Pieces To Help Other Teams

Sometimes I wonder if Terry Collins and the front office are on the same page.

[…]

Alderson Confirms Syndergaard May Not Debut For Mets This Season

Pretty much confirming the suggestion by Terry Collins that Noah Syndergaard may not pitch in the majors this season, Sandy Alderson reiterated that assertion. Adam Rubin of ESPN New York asked if it was possible that Syndergaard would be in the majors this season, and Alderson responded: “It’s conceivable, but I wouldn’t predict it.” “Obviously we still […]

In Sandy We Trust?

Despite all of the offseason moves and despite all the talk of being a 90 win team, at 37-48, the Mets are now 11 games under .500 on July 3rd for the second consecutive year. At this point last season, the Mets were the same 37-48 featuring a lineup riddled with minor league players such […]

Terry Has Them Playing Not To Lose

What an stunning and deflating loss last night. I don’t mind losing, I can handle losing, but it’s the agonizingly, torturous ways we lose that kill me. And last night’s gut-punch was the worst of the season. You know, I started to get that feeling of impending doom in the bottom of the sixth when […]

It’s Time for a New Voice.  Bring in Wally.

I don’t have anything against Terry Collins. He was asked to steer a rudderless ship for the past several seasons, knowing full well that he didn’t have a chance of winning and did the best with an inferior group of players. When he came on board prior to the 2011 season, he promised the fans […]

DeGrom’s Rotation Spot Safe, Needs To Get Sharper

Adam Rubin of ESPN NY writes that Terry Collins said rookie Jacob deGrom is not losing his rotation spot anytime soon.
