METS RUMORS & GOSSIP

The New York Mets…there’s nothing to say anymore

Speechless. Just speechless. The New York Mets are simply beyond pathetic. This team can’t hit. This team can’t score runs. The only hope for this team are the pitchers, who conveniently are the ones providing what little offense this team actually has. This is absolutely brutal to watch. For nearly ten years, fans have been trying to advise the team as best they can in regards...

The Mets Should Consider Trading Matt Harvey

The Mets should consider trading Matt Harvey. Why on earth would the Mets trade a 26-year-old ace who is entering his prime and is not a free agent until after the 2018 season? For that exact reason. The value that Harvey could bring back in a trade could be a king’s ransom. If Sandy Alderson called up a team and said we are willing to give you three full years of Matt Harvey’s...

Mets’ July Schedule Makes It Imperative For Alderson To Do Something Now

I couldn’t help but wonder what Mets GM Sandy Alderson – the game’s smartest general manager – was thinking last night when his team was shut out for the eighth time. And, the fourth time by a 1-0 score. Perhaps he was mulling over his Twitter account and what 140-character quips he might treat us with. Hopefully, he was thinking about the July schedule that will define this...

Hey, New York Mets, it’s July 1, and you know what that means. Yes, it is time to pay Bobby Bonilla is annual check of $1,193,248.20.

New York Mets’ offensive woes are holding them back from being a playoff contender

This was supposed to be the year everything would come together for the New York Mets. Fans have been waiting for 2015 for about three to four years now. Well, someone forgot to tell their hitters that, because they have not looked like a lineup that can compete anywhere near the playoffs. The Mets had another tough loss in their most recent outing against the Chicago Cubs. They...

Projecting Mets’ Bullpen When Mejia Returns

Although Bobby Parnell has pitched well for the Mets since coming off the disabled list, I’m figuring Jenrry Mejia will assume to the set-up role to Jeurys Familia when he’s activated from his suspension next week. I thought the Mets would sever ties with Mejia after he was nailed for PEDs, but the erratic performance of their bullpen made that implausible. However, should the...

Which pitchers has Sandy Alderson actually drafted or signed?

What do Matt Harvey, Zack Wheeler, Jacob deGrom, Noah Syndergaard, and Steven Matz all have in common? Besides the fact that they are all on the Mets, none of them have actually been drafted by Sandy Alderson. Matz was drafted by Omar Minaya in one of the deepest left-handed starting pitching drafts ever (2009), Harvey and deGrom were part of the last draft class by Minaya ...

Mets quietly move Wilmer Flores from shortstop to second base

With all the attention on a spectacular debut from starter Steven Matz on Sunday, the New York Mets managed to slip a position change under the radar. For the first time this season, manager Terry Collins penciled in shortstop Wilmer Flores at second base, where he plans to keep him at least until third baseman David Wright returns from the disabled list. Flores struggled defensively...

Assessing Trade Value Of Jon Niese

With the emergence of Steven Matz, expect the Mets to ratchet up their intent to trade from their pitching depth to bolster their anemic offense. The Mets would dearly like to find a taker or two for Jon Niese and Bartolo Colon on the major league level; Dillon Gee in the minors; and Rafael Montero, who has spent much of the season on the disabled list.

Are the Mets being too patient at the plate?

Old fish, skunks and wet dog. These putrid stenches somehow reek less than the 2015 Mets offense. There’s just no other way a baseball team with that type of pitching is hovering around .500. Comparing the Mets to 29 other Major League teams, their 276 runs scored is only better than three other teams. Stellar pitching continues to outweigh suspect defense for a 24.1 dWAR, but...

Mets' Matt Harvey admits post-surgery phase has been harder than he expected

Steven Matz’s historical debut for the New York Mets

When the New York Mets called up top left-handed pitching prospect Steven Matz earlier this week, they thought they were getting a stud pitcher who could help them be successful in their quest to have an unorthodox 6-man rotation. Today, the 24 year old out of New York proved he is more than just a great arm for the Mets’ rotation. Matz did pitch a solid 7.2 innings against the...

On Curtis Granderson batting leadoff for the Mets

They say home run hitters typically get them in bunches. Those of us who remember Dave Kingman sadly will recall that he blasted five homers in the seven games before he was hurt back in 1976, ending his best chance to make a run at Roger Maris. Well, right now Curtis Granderson has hit five homers in his last seven games – if you’re ready to count Saturday’s suspended...
