What’s Collins Really Thinking With His Lineup?

Here’s why I have trouble taking the Mets seriously at times. In today’s game against St. Louis, manager Terry Collins plans to bat Matt Harvey eighth. Theoretically, it would enable him to bat Juan Lagares ninth followed by Curtis Granderson and David Wright. COLLINS: What’s he really thinking? “I know in our market it’s a big issue. It’ll be a headline, back-page...

Collins Says Bench Spots Still Up For Grabs

Terry Collins told reporters that there are still bench spots up for grabs. (Matt Ehalt) “With the season opener approaching, Collins said before Thursday’s 8-3 win over the Nationals there are still bench spots to be won over the next week and half. The Mets are still evaluating their backup infielder spots, as well as the fifth outfielder role.” “I would say there are...

Collins Considering Batting Pitcher 8th, Lagares 9th

Here we go again. According to Joel Sherman of the New York Post, Terry Collins is once again toying with the idea of batting the pitcher eighth. When you first here it you’re like, “what, huh, so what…” Until you realize it means batting Juan Lagares ninth and then you’ve like, “what the **** is he crazy!?!?!?” This lame brained scheme is coming as Lagares, who was...

Mets’ Outfield Alignment Set

In somewhat of a surprise, manager Terry Collins announced today Michael Cuddyer would play left field and Curtis Granderson would be in right. The decision is somewhat of a surprise because the presumption was Cuddyer – with 854 career games in right and just three in left – would play the position where he was most comfortable. However, this makes sense in the respect right...

Reactions To Mets Opening Day and Home Opener

You know what? Most of the drama that seems to constantly surround the Mets is created by the Mets. It’s true whether you choose to believe it or not. I find that more often than not, the Mets are at the root of most of their problems. Whether it’s having fans sign loyalty pledges, or have the players wear those damn t-shirts then confiscate them 48 hours later, and all the...

What’s The Point Of Mets Announcing Partial Rotation?

What is it with the Mets that they can’t go all the way with certain things? Manager Terry Collins announced his rotation for the season-opening three-game series at Washington, but stopped there. How difficult is it to name the full rotation? And, more to the point, if Matt Harvey is ready for the season, then why not go ahead and name him the Opening Day starter? COLON: Opening...

Collins and Alderson Disappointed In Lefthanded Bullpen Situation

A frustrated Terry Collins said after Thursday’s game that the Mets could enter the season without a left-hander in the bullpen according to reporters and just go with seven right-handers. “Yeah, I’m disappointed. Here’s a chance. You come to the major league spring training and all you want is a chance. Now, with our guy down, if I’m left-handed I’m looking in the mirror...

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...

Why is Terry Collins naming his Opening Day starter already?

The New York Mets have a log jam in the starting rotation. This is not news. They failed to trade anyone in the offseason. Also, this is not news. What is news, however, is the report on Tuesday that the team is leaning toward pitching Zack Wheeler (3.54 ERA, 11-11 in 2014) on Opening Day. This immediately brings up two questions: why does manager Terry Collins feel the need to...
