METS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Mets reliever Jenrry Mejia suspended 162 games for PEDs

Jenrry Mejia, what are you doing, man? The New York Mets players, coaches and executives are surely asking that very question as the reliever tested positive for the second time this year, thus drawing a 162-game suspension. Mejia had already missed the first 80 games of the season after failing a test for PEDs. As if that wasn’t astounding enough, the 25-year-old got dinged...

One Man’s Trash: Conforto in LF Major

Michael Conforto (+29%) was the most added player in fantasy baseball this past week. The New York Mets have been staggering along on offense this season (29th in MLB in runs scored), which hasn't exactly made life easy for their impressive trio of starting pitchers (Jacob deGrom, Matt Harvey, and Noah Syndergaard) thus far. Despite this offensive ineptitude, they are currently just...

Exploring a potential Carlos Gomez trade

ESPN’s Jim Bowden earlier today proposed the Mets and Milwaukee Brewers make a trade that would send CF Carlos Gomez and RHP Neal Cotts to the Mets in return for CF Juan Lagares, RHP Rafael Montero, RHP Marcos Molina and OF Brandon Nimmo. The trade would give the Mets a much needed boost in center field, where Juan Lagares has been a less impactful fielder, making his .610 on-base...

Clippard Deal Gives Depth To Mets’ Bullpen

Perhaps the Mets see cracks with Jeurys Familia, or they see flaws with Carlos Torres and Alex Torres, but I like the acquisition of Tyler Clippard from Oakland. In whatever role they use him, he adds depth to a strained bullpen that is becoming exposed. Note that Familia has blown his two save opportunities since the All-Star break. The Mets sent minor league pitcher Casey Meisner...

Mets Use Depth To Get Tyler Clippard

Though the Mets might need a bat most of all, their acquisition of Tyler Clippard makes good sense. By fielding-independent numbers, their bullpen has been middle-of-the-road so far this year, and the returns of Jenrry Mejia and Bobby Parnell might not be enough to push this bullpen into a strength as the end of the […]

Mets Acquire A’s Closer Tyler Clippard

The New York Mets have acquired right-handed reliever Tyler Clippard from the Oakland A’s in exchange for minor league RHP Casey Meissner according to Jon Heyman of CBS Sports. The Mets are reportedly receiving $1 million in cash as part of the deal. So Clippard ends up costing approximately $2.5 million dollars to the Mets. Quite […]

New York Mets trade rumors: Tyler Clippard edition

Reports that the New York Mets weren’t done wheeling and dealing appear to be true. Ken Rosenthal was first to report that the Mets are pushing for a deal with the Oakland A’s over relief pitcher Tyler Clippard. Now it bears keeping in mind that the Mets are not the only team in on Clippard but it has been said that significant progress has been made in the talks. #Mets making...

Want Bruce For Mets

Of all the Mets’ trade rumors, I like the one involving Jay Bruce best. I am not thrilled with the prospects of trading for Yoenis Cespedes or Yasiel Puig, although I doubt the Dodgers will move the latter. BRUCE: Want him for Mets. (AP) Cespedes is a headache waiting to happen, and Puig is already a man-child. Bruce is having somewhat of a bounce back season, but his numbers...

Maybe Sandy Alderson is a baseball revolutionary after all

Take the worst-hitting team in the league, add two fringe players and a prospect generally considered to be not ready, and in their first game together the Mets score 15 runs. Pretty good initial return to baseball activities from Sandy Alderson!I was away all weekend and did not get to see any of Saturday's or Sunday's games.

Gut Reaction: Mets 3 Dodgers 2 (10) (7/26/15)

Jeurys Familia blew his second save in a week. The Mets didn’t hit all that much against Zack Grienke. In fact, they had no extra-base hit at all, technically. And they won, anyway. Juan Uribe blasted a ball off the wall in the bottom of the 10th, scoring Curtis Granderson, who had led off with a double. Uribe was credited with a single, but under any other circumstances, that...

Does Zack Wheeler for Justin Upton make sense?

Sandy Alderson finally made a trade and acquired two veteran hitters in Kelly Johnson and Juan Uribe. The Mets were in need of some offensive pieces, and got two of them from their division rivals. As we continue to approach the trade deadline, Alderson said that he is still pursuing big moves to upgrade the offense. One player that has been linked to the Mets is Justin Upton of...

Kevin Plawecki and the impending return of Travis d’Arnaud

Just about everything went right Saturday night. The new-look Mets lineup saw replacements Michael Conforto and Kirk Nieuwenhuis get four-hit games, import Kelly Johnson get two – including a homer – and struggling slugger Lucas Duda crack two long balls. The only thing we could have hoped for and didn’t get was a breakout for Kevin Plawecki. Instead, the backstop was...

The New York Mets will be buyers and sellers at trade deadline

The New York Mets have reportedly discussed trading Zack Wheeler with several teams. Wheeler, who has missed this season so far due to Tommy John surgery received in March, came into the big leagues in 2013 and has put together a solid MLB career so far. He’s 18-16 in 49 career starts with a 3.50 ERA and 271 strikeouts. Wheeler (in 2014) has yet to pitch this season due to injury...

Mets get player most similar to Ben Zobrist

Sandy Alderson has resumed baseball activities! Three good moves in one day: Acquiring Juan Uribe and Kelly Johnson for fringe prospects, promoting Michael Conforto and designating John Mayberry Jr. That won't win the pennant, but things certainly look more hopeful than a day ago.I haven't understood the obsession the hitting-starved Mets seem to have with Ben Zobrist, whose days...

The top hitting prospect that New York Mets fans have been begging for has finally been called up to the Majors. Michael Conforto has been called up from Double-A Binghamton.

Hey, the New York Mets got some offense! Sure, neither of the bats they acquired were the caliber of Justin Upton, but every little bit helps!
