Further Proof Tejada Doesn’t Get It

My guess is this will be Ruben Tejada’s last season with the Mets. That is, if he lasts that long. Manager Terry Collins has called into question Tejada’s work ethic in the past, and now players are doing so. Former teammate Jose Reyes, whose own attitude has been doubted, said Tejada failed in his opportunity to seize the Mets’ shortstop job. Once off-season workout buddies...

Rollins Would Have Played For Mets, Says Their Future Is Bright

When Jimmy Rollins was still with the Phillies, there were two reports that he would use his veto rights to kill any trade to the Mets, who were reportedly very interested in the boisterous and still very productive shortstop. However, in an interview with Jerry Crasnick of ESPN, Rollins refuted those reports and admitted that the New York Mets were his second choice of preferred...

New York Mets: Matt Harvey impresses in first action

The Mets hope that Matt Harvey returns to his 2013 form after 18 months of rest and rehab from elbow surgery April is right around the corner, and hope is in the air. Around this time, most MLB teams are gearing up for another season. A lot of projections and things of that nature are coming out right about now. However, everyone is 0-0, so everyone has a reason to be optimistic...

There may still be hope for Ruben Tejada

Ex-Met shortstop Jose Reyes made a small bit of news this week when he was critical of Ruben Tejada‘s inability to lock down the starting shortstop job. Specifically, Reyes insinuated that perhaps Tejada simply had not put in the required work to hold it down long-term. This is mostly of note because Reyes isn’t very critical of anybody publicly. It also wasn’t that long...

Mets Flashback: Dave Kingman Comes To Queens

On this day in Mets’ history in 1975, the contract of outfielder and first baseman Dave Kingman was purchased from the San Francisco Giants. The 6-foot-6 Kingman, nicknamed Kong for his prodigious strength and power, was to give the Mets the fearsome home run hitter they had never had this early in their existence. “He was going to make us a winner,’’ said Joe, a life...

Mets Matters: Collins Prefers Lagares At Leadoff

Mets manager Terry Collins stated a preference today for Juan Lagares over Curtis Granderson as the leadoff hitter. Lagares has the speed, but strikes out too much and doesn’t have the on-base percentage – at least not yet – needed for that slot in the order. Lagares’ on-base percentage last year was .321 and Collins said he’d like it to be in the .330 to .340 range. ...

Mets’ Ace Matt Harvey Is Finally Back In Action

New York Mets’ starting pitcher Matt Harvey had Tommy John surgery in October of 2013 and he was far from what you might call a “happy camper” or even a remotely cooperative one about it. Initially he attempted rehabbing his torn ulnar collateral ligament but reluctantly opted for the procedure as it is, on the whole, much more effective. As soon as Harvey was out of surgery...

Mets Matters: Harvey Sharp In Throw Session

Matt Harvey threw two 20-pitch sessions to hitters without pain Friday and is on track to start, March 6, against Detroit. Harvey threw to David Wright, Michael Cuddyer, Curtis Granderson and Daniel Murphy, who only tracked pitches and did not swing. Harvey couldn’t be happier. “It was awesome,’’ Harvey told reporters in Port St. Lucie. “You step in the box and you have...

The time to trade Daniel Murphy is now

Unless there’s some sneaky underlying scheming occurring, Sandy Alderson just put the Mets in hot water about Daniel Murphy. Word broke Thursday morning that Murphy has yet to speak with Alderson and co. about extending his contract. The beloved second baseman will pull in $8 million this season as a 30-year-old with six prior seasons wearing orange and blue. He shouldn’t finish...

Collins: Den Dekker and Nieuwenhuis will battle for outfield spot

The New York Mets roster will be comprised of the organizations best 25 players, Terry Collins told the media Friday afternoon. That means the battle to determine the team’s fifth outfielder between Matt den Dekker and Kirk Nieuwenhuis should theoretically be based on skill; however, Nieuwenhuis is out of minor league options and will need to clear waivers if he does not make the...

New York Mets: does Colon have inside track for Opening Day start?

In a perfect world, the New York Mets would be starting Matt Harvey on Opening Day against Max Scherzer (probably) and the Washington Nationals. But this world isn’t perfect and the Mets, in trying to limit Harvey’s innings, will be holding the superstar out until the home opener. So, now we need to ask, who does get the ball on Opening Day? There are basically 5 options. First...

What is Matt Harvey’s kryptonite?

New York Mets ace Matt Harvey’s bullpen session sparked cheers from a fan base that has endured eight consecutive playoff-less seasons – but does he have a weakness? Harvey’s 36 dominant Major League starts have made him the undisputed ace of the team, but the Dark Knight will need to adapt to overcome one blemish on an otherwise pristine resume: His ability to pitch effectively...

2015 season preview: New York Mets

The Mets moved decisively early in the offseason, adding a much-needed bat to the outfield in Michael Cuddyer. Unfortunately, general manager Sandy Alderson did little else, as it quickly became once again clear that team ownership wasn’t going to significantly increase payroll. Dreams of trading for a franchise shortstop kept fans warm throughout the winter, but the front office...

Jeurys Familia needs to rely on control, deception

The New York Mets’ bullpen will play host to a myriad of superb closer candidates this spring – perhaps none more so than Jeurys Familia. Familia, 25, has the opportunity to step into a closing role this spring while incumbent Bobby Parnell works his way back from Tommy John surgery. The dynamic pitcher’s emergence in 2014 can be attributed to a devastating mix of a 96.2 mph...

Mets Card of the Week: 2015 Daniel Murphy

New York Mets: Troy Tulowitzki Rumors

We all know that the New York Mets and the Colorado Rockies talked this winter about trading shortstop Troy Tulowitzki. Nothing ever came from the deal because the Mets were unsure what to make of the fact that Tulowitzki was coming off of major hip surgery and still had $118 million left in his contract.
