How Long Can Mets Tolerate Collins’ Tactical Errors?

It’s been established Terry Collins is not a great tactical manager. It’s not just the fans that feel that way. Mets general manager Sandy Alderson admitted it that much in Steve Kettman’s book: “Baseball Maverick, How Sandy Alderson Revolutionized Baseball and Revived the Mets.” Collins have made couple of interesting moves the last two

What’s Not To Like About Colon?

Bartolo Colon is doing things we all dream of doing; having fun at his work craft at such an old age. Even better, Colon improves as he ages. The 43-year-old starter is having another banner season for the Mets. With the way he is going, he would be hard-pressed to retire anytime

Getting Bruce Is Better Than Nothing

For the second straight year, Mets general manager Sandy Alderson did something in the trade deadline. He acquired a hitter from another team to boost a struggling lineup. After getting Yoenis Cespedes last year, the Mets acquired Jay Bruce from the Reds for Dilson Herrera and minor leaguer left-hander Max Wotell

Now or Never For Flores

It seems Wilmer Flores plays well when he has a sense of urgency. When the Mets almost traded him to the Brewers last year, he responded by having a torrid August by hitting .306 with three home runs and 12 RBIs. He also had an on-base percentage of .337 along with

Loney is Making Most Of His Opportunity

No one saw this coming. Not James Loney. Not the Mets fans. Not the experts. Not Mets general manager Sandy Alderson. Loney has been productive since the Mets acquired him from the Padres at the end of May. In so many ways, he has been a revelation. Remember the former Dodger was released

Russ’s Rants – – The Mets Are a Dead Team

When you’re at a Mets Father’s Day Game the horrific thought of a no-hitter being tossed by the opposition creeps into your mind.  The Jim Bunning 1964 “perfect game” predates most of us yet we know of the horror. Well yesterday I felt like that was possible. Braves starter, Julio

Trading Conforto Should Be The Way To Go

Prior to last night’s Mets’ 4-0 loss to the Pirates at Citi Field, Mets general manager Sandy Alderson announced David Wright could have season-ending neck surgery. This shouldn’t be surprising. Wright has played through an injury since spring training. It never got better for him. It was hard to believe his

What’s Next For Wright?

David Wright is on his way to the disabled list. This comes after he was diagnosed with a herniated disk in his neck late last night. This isn’t news. It shouldn’t be. Not when he missed the past five games with neck issues. He has been playing in pain all season,

Jacob deGrom Never Lost It

It felt like old times again. After grinding through two months, Jacob deGrom became the deGrominator yesterday. As in dominating and overpowering opponents. deGrom gave up a run on five hits in seven innings while striking out 10 in the Mets’ frustrating 2-1 loss in 13 innings to the White Sox
