METS RUMORS & GOSSIP

The Differences Between The Giants And Mets

I hope Sandy Alderson and Terry Collins took notes in Game 1, because the Giants have the blueprint the Mets should be following. So, in comparing the wild-card Giants to the Mets, there’s more than just a 3,000-mile difference: Solid starting pitching: Madison Bumgarner was lights out, pitching quickly, and with command and composure. This is what the Mets expect from Matt Harvey...

Handicapping Trade Value and Odds Of Mets Pitchers

To get something, you have to give something, but what the New York Mets don’t want to give up is their young pitching.  Understandable, but how long can they hold out? The Mets say they won’t deal Matt Harvey, but remember there is no such thing as an untouchable. What if some team, in the words of Don Corleone, make them “an offer they can’t refuse.’’ Let’s take...

Mets360 2014 Projection Review: Jenrry Mejia

It was a tale of two seasons for Jenrry Mejia. He began 2014 as a starter, and turned in a couple of electric performances in that role, but by early May his ERA had ballooned up over 5 and he was moved to the bullpen. Mejia pitched well in a few late-inning appearances, and notched his first save of the season against the Nats on May 17. He went on to log 28 saves and record a 2...

Fielding Bible, Gold Glove Awards In Sight For Lagares

Later this fall, Juan Lagares hopes to win his first Gold Glove in center field and according to BillJamesOnline.com‘s John Dewan, he will get it done. Dewan cast his ballot for the 2014 Fielding Bible Award earlier this week and chose Lagares. His 28 defensive runs saved were the most by far among all outfielders. Here’s what he had to say about Lagares: Entering 2014, there...

Mets360 2014 Projection Review: Dillon Gee

Our projection review series continues with one of the larger enigmas of the 2014 Mets. Dillon Gee was coming off a surprisingly productive 2013. He logged a career-best 199 innings pitched, with above average rate stats, his 1.218 WHIP in particular. All signs pointed to a continuation of that trend in 2014, so much so that – in the face of a major injury to Matt Harvey, and...

Familia Replacing Mejia As The Mets Closer?

Mike Vorkunov of NJ.com ponders if the Mets should just go with Jeurys Familia as the team’s closer next season. He argues that as as impressive as Jenrry Mejia was last season in his first stint as closer, Familia was far more consistent than him. “While Mejia’s saves could sometimes feel like he was walking a tight-rope (A 1.50 WHIP in save situations), Familia was more stable...

Will Sandy Alderson make any moves?

In the past, Sandy Alderson has not made too many big splash moves to help the major league team. Most of the trades so far have involved selling off pieces of the Mets for prospects, which has worked out for the Mets as they are coming up through the system and making an impact on the big league club. The only big free agent contract he has handed out was to Curtis Granderson...

Citi Field Fence Changes Could Change Team Strategy

In the last few years, the New York Mets have done a pretty good job building up their farm system with a lot of pitching. Ever since moving to Citi Field, hitters have found it difficult to drive the ball out of the ballpark. That leads to a focus on pitching, but things could change this upcoming season as the fences are moved in for the 2nd time since opening up in 2009. The New...

Burning questions for the New York Mets’ offseason

The New York Mets ended 2014 with some promise and some answers to long term questions. However there are still a few that go unresolved into 2015. 1. Who’s the answer at shortstop? The Mets need to find out quickly if Wilmer Flores is going to be the shortstop of the future One thing is clear: it probably isn’t Ruben Tejada.
