Mets Are Likely To Press Reset Button On Starting Rotation

Yesterday on Twitter, I was asked to speculate what the probability was that we’d open next season with Noah Syndergaard, Jacob deGrom, Matt Harvey, Steven Matz, and Zack Wheeler as our starting rotation. I quickly responded that the likelihood was about 80 percent. The more I thought about it, the more I realized that this may not even be a choice for the New York Mets, who...

Rafael Montero and the Last Chance Saloon

This week on the podcast, when asked to make an unlikely prediction, Gotham Baseball’s Mark Healey said that Rafael Montero was going to be a useful pitcher. Sunday, Montero gets yet another chance to show his stuff. We can’t really call it his last chance, because at this point the only thing to garner more last chance appearances than Montero is that saloon in Kansas. It’s...

DeGrom Emanates Dominance After Tip From Smoltz

With a Mets starting rotation that has been put through the ringer, there has been one constant as of late and his name is Jacob deGrom. Noah Syndergaard went down with a partially torn lat muscle. Then it was Matt Harvey. Zack Wheeler. Steven Matz. Seth Lugo. The list goes on. Every Mets starter has spent time on the disabled list except for deGrom and Robert Gsellman, the latter...

Knapp Solid; Reynolds, Smith Homer to Lift 51s Over Salt Lake

In a season where the Las Vegas 51s (29-46) are 17 games under .500, it comes down to finding bright spots wherever possible. After losing the first two games of the four-game series to the Salt Lake Bees, Vegas finally put together both some offense and pitching. Right-hander Ricky Knapp started for the 51s and logged seven solid innings, giving up three runs on six hits, and walking...

‘Workaholic’ Jacob deGrom delivers gem to propel Mets

SAN FRANCISCO — Jacob deGrom deserves a medal just for taking his turn each time in a battered Mets rotation, but here is something else: He is scary-good right now. With all the explosions around the team in recent weeks, deGrom’s stability might be the best thing the Mets have going for them. On Saturday...

Gut Reaction: Mets 5, Giants 1 (6/24/17)

For Jacob deGrom, tonight was yet another start where he proved he is the best pitcher in the Mets rotation. He posted another solid outing, going eight strong innings with seven strikeouts and allowing one earned run. He simply controlled the game from the mound, and his only slip up was a solo shot allowed to Brandon Belt. My gut reaction is that deGrom will continue to dominate...

Dominic Smith is the future at first base for the New York Mets

The New York Mets’ struggles this season have been well documented, and as the trade deadline approaches, the Mets are looking more and more like a team that will be selling rather than buying. The team is 12 games back in their division, 13.5 games back in the Wild Card hunt, and with injuries continuing to pile up there hasn’t been a good reason to believe the Mets have a shot...

New York Mets trade rumors: Who’s staying and who’s going?

In a tweet Friday afternoon, ESPN Insider Buster Olney reported that the New York Mets are open for business. Coming into Saturday’s game against San Francisco, the Mets find themselves 12.5 games behind the Nationals in the NL East and 13.5 games back of a Wild Card spot. With such large deficits and even worse team health, the club will almost certainly look to sell at the trade...

Asdrubal Cabrera’s whirlwind day ends on a high note

Friday was an eventful day for Asdrubal Cabrera. He was activated from the disabled list, informed that he was no longer going to play shortstop, publicly asked for a trade and then finished the day with a three-hit game – and was semi-robbed of another hit – and had a nice game-ending fielding play at second base. Allegedly, the Mets promised Cabrera when they signed him that...

New York Mets rumors: We’re trash

Any source of hope for even the most optimistic New York Mets fans was probably squandered with the team’s most recent series in Los Angeles. After the Nationals had their way with the Mets over the weekend (killing any hope of competing for the division), the Mets were then demolished by the Dodgers to a combined score of 30-8 over the three-game set, indicating it is almost...

Tim Tebow clearly doesn’t believe in pine tar, sends bat flying into second deck (before striking out)

Tim Tebow is still trying to give baseball a shot, and things are going pretty much exactly as expected by scouts and respected baseball evaluators. The former NFL quarterback and Heisman winner currently has a rough .228/.324/.345 slash line to go with a 28.0 strikeout percentage, as a 29-year-old in A-ball for the Columbus Fireflies (Mets’ affiliate).
