Watch: Matt Harvey discusses Jacob deGrom’s hair on ‘The Daily Show’

Jon Stewart is a big New York Mets fan. So it probably shouldn’t be a surprise that he’d want the ace of his favorite baseball team on The Daily Show, especially when the host has about 10 weeks before he gives up the anchor chair on Aug. 6. Matt Harvey was Stewart’s guest Thursday night, and the Mets diehard immediately took steps to protect the pitcher’s prized right arm...

Power finally showing up in the bats of Lucas Duda, others

After a slow start to the season in the power department, Mets hitting coach Kevin Long said that he wasn’t worried, and the home runs would come. And come they have. Over the past seven days, Mets hitters have clobbered 10 home runs, tied for fifth-most in baseball in that time.  Lucas Duda has five alone, Michael Cuddyer – who everyone was writing off for dead a week ago –...

Mets’ Six-Man Rotation Proof They Didn’t Get It Right With Harvey Initially

While some are giving the Mets kudos for the inventiveness of going to a six-man rotation, they are doing so to protect Matt Harvey and his surgically-repaired money elbow. More to the point, they are doing it because they didn’t properly calculate a program to monitor his innings in the first pace. The Mets entered the season with a “play it by ear” approach with Harvey, but...

Mets' Michael Cuddyer making Citi Field his new home

In the past few seasons, New York Mets left fielder Michael Cuddyer has hit significantly better at home, which is now carrying over to his new home, Citi Field. Cuddyer, who is in his first season in the Mets' outfield, highlighted his homebody tendencies with a recent three-game homestretch against the Phillies in which he bashed a pair of homers and knocked five hits in 10 at...

Lucas Duda explains approach at plate during recent power swell

New York Mets first baseman Lucas Duda has been crushing the ball lately, hitting five home runs in his last six games. After achieving his second two-homer game in two weeks, Duda attempted to explain why he's been terrorizing opposing pitchers as of late. "I'm getting a little more comfortable. Just trying to elevate a pitch and put a good swing on it," Duda said, per the New York...

Terry Collins: Why his six-man rotation is a bad idea

Baseball is all about innovations. As the game evolves, it is the duty of managers to become more creative with their rosters. Throughout the history of the sport this has been apparent. Whether it’s the creation of a new pitch, the emergence of the closer role, the addition of the DH or the changing of field dimensions, baseball is in constant motion. With all of the adaptations...

Vic Black Is Ready To Return

Mets reliever Vic Black, who has been trying to come back from shoulder and neck issues, passed a significant hurdle last night. The right-hander has now pitched in back to back scoreless relief appearances with Double-A Binghamton and according to Mets pitching coach Dan Warthen, Black is now ready to come off the DL. However, whether or not Black is activated is up to the Mets...

The One Where Lucas Duda Almost Killed A Guy

Noah Syndergaard strokes his third hit of the day, a single for which he was cruelly robbed of an RBI when Tim Teufel put up the stop sign. They say a bad day at the ballpark is better than a good day at work. I guess that would make a good day at the ballpark better than anything else on earth. I’ll whole-heartedly go with that. This was a notable day for me for two reasons...

Shocker! There is actually some Mets talk today on Subway Squawkers!

Since Squawker Jon is very busy with a real-life work project, there hasn’t been much Mets talk in this blog lately. Heck, we’ve had more “Mad Men” talk lately than Mets talk! (Speaking of which, click here to hear a drunken Don Draper sing “Meet the Mets.” If I were in charge of the Yankees big-screen entertainment, I would have that clip played at the next Subway Series...

New York Mets, Wilmer Flores prevail 5-4

Wilmer Flores What could have been a gut-wrenching home loss for the Mets turned into celebration Tuesday night as the New York Mets prevailed 5-4 against the Philadelphia Phillies.

Flores Not Mets’ Biggest Flaw

Critics of the Mets, and there are many, are missing the point when it comes to Wilmer Flores. I just read somewhere of a list of the Mets’ biggest flaws, and of course, Flores is right up there as they point to his errors. FLORES: Comes through in clutch. (AP) Unquestionably, Flores is a flawed player, but who isn’t? He’s in the lineup for his bat, plain and simple. That’s...

New York Mets still searching for answer at third base

Allow me to present you with a question. What would the Avengers be without Captain America? Cap serves as the moral compass of the team as well as being a born leader. Who else could control the larger than life personalities and egos on the team? Who else would stop Thor from going rogue and eating lunch during a mission? You’re probably wondering why I’m talking about the...

Collins, Alderson Continue To Guess At Mets’ Physical Ailments

Just because we’re in a world where immediate answers are demanded, it doesn’t mean Mets manager Terry Collins is obligated to improvise with one on Matt Harvey. After Harvey’s worst major league outing Saturday in Pittsburgh, without having benefit of a medical exam, Collins suggested to reporters the pitcher might have a “dead arm.’’ While this may or not be true, I’m...

Mets Minors: Gavin Cecchini continues to impress offensively

The most unappreciated prospect for the Mets right now is Gavin Cecchini. It seems odd to type that since most of my comments since the day the Mets drafted him have been less than flattering. But the simple truth is that since the end of last season, Cecchini has been putting up tremendous numbers that are not a fluke. Cecchini got an undeserved promotion to Hi-A last year after...

Dodgers & Mets Should Be Trade Partners

It’s been well documented the needs of the Los Angeles Dodgers – to bolster its starting staff behind Greinke and Kershaw – especially with the news of Hyun-Jin Ryu’s injury and to augment their back end rather than relying on Carlos Frias or Mike Bolsinger for the whole season (although they’ve both been very good to this point). They also can’t rely on the continued...

While doctors are hoping it can be alleviated with rest in David’s case, it has also been known to be more severe, as it caused Lenny Dykstra to end his career at the age of 35.

New York Mets: as team gets healthier what’s the next move?

The New York Mets have been decimated by injuries for most of this season so far. Despite the losses of some of the most important members of the team, the Mets have managed to put together a solid season, with a record of 24-18 and only half a game out of first place in the division despite an offense that goes through lengthy cold spells.
