The Phillies will travel to play the Mets to see who looks worse heading into the All-Star break. It’s no longer the mid-summer Classic because we’ve surpassed the halfway point in games. July 4th is a good barometer for how teams are doing, and both of these teams aren’t doing
It’s nice to have starting pitching. It’s arguable that having great starting pitching wins championships. The Mets didn't during the time they had Matt Harvey (gone), Jacob deGrom, Noah Syndergaard, Steven Matz, and Zack Wheeler. There was a time a few years ago that most smart fans knew they would
This winter has been a whirlwind for Mets fans. Nobody believed they were “really” in on Bryce Harper, so they could easily ignore that. Many shook their heads as they chose Travis d’Arnaud over Wilmer Flores, but that’s still small potatoes. Trying to acquire Robinson Cano seems to be just
This isn’t R.A. Dickey we’re talking about here. That trade was explainable, and Noah Syndergaard was a part of that deal. Top prospect, Travis d’arnaud was the jewel of the deal. At least that’s what the Mets thought and so far it’s been the opposite and it will stay that
When the Mets decided they could compete next year and that’s why weren’t trading Jacob deGrom or Zack Wheeler, they promptly went out and lost 25-4 to the Washington Nationals.
The likelihood of the Mets signing Jacob deGrom to a team-friendly deal after the season he’s having is the longest of
The Mets are the champions of April. The past few years this has been a constant. Sandy Alderson always has the team looking “good enough” out of the gate but it’s always lacking depth and that’s why May always ends in sorrow. They’re currently 1-8 this month.
Last year the Mets
General Manager Sandy Alderson has said the Mets have $30 million to spend. They are currently ranked 20th in the league in payroll and they will end up with a total of around $101 million if they stick to the plan. This is a small-market plan for a team who
Nobody is sure that the Mets will be aggressive in the free agent market this year. So far general manager, Sandy Alderson has accepted the resignation from Terry Collins and made him his special assistant. Then he fired Dan Warthen and stated he will stay with the team. Mets trainer
Yoenis Cespedes has security. He’s signed through 2020 and I don’t have a problem with his contract. When it comes to the Mets pitching staff the team seems to have different take on this. So far, they haven’t locked up any of their young pitching and soon that could come
In my world, I thought Noah Syndergaard was the Mets best pitcher last season. He’s already been named the opening day starter and he came into camp looking great. Oh, wait. He put on 17 pounds of muscle and now “panic city” is back.
The worry is he looks too big,
