Michael Conforto is becoming the face of the Mets’ franchise

Quick – name the player you first associate with the Washington Nationals? You likely said Bryce Harper and except for some stragglers saying Daniel Murphy you would have plenty of company. No credit to you if you said Jonathan Papelbon. How about an Angel? Mike Trout, surely. Here’s a tough one: the Phillies? Don’t say it’s Carlos “Chooch” Ruiz. They either...

Collins wonders if 2015 Matt Harvey is crippling 2016 Matt Harvey

Maybe there is some merit to that whole six-man rotation and skipping starts, after all. After Matt Harvey faltered in the middle innings once again as the Mets managed one hit and were beaten 3-0 by Atlanta at Citi Field, manager Terry Collins suggested his star pitcher may be feeling the effects of last season’s...

How good has the New York Mets middle-infield been?

The New York Mets’ new double play combination- Asdrubal Cabrera and Neil Walker- has been an offensive bright spot this season. Cabrera is hitting .306 coming into play Tuesday night while Walker is hitting .305 with nine home runs and 19 RBI.

Terry Collins doesn’t agree with Joe Girardi’s opinion on shifts

New York Yankees manager Joe Girardi made some waves this week when he not only bemoaned the increasingly prevalent use of defensive shifts in Major League Baseball, but called for an outright ban on them. “It’s illegal defense, just like basketball,” Girardi said Tuesday. “Guard your man. Guard your spot. If I were commissioner, they’d be illegal. As long as it’s legal...

New York Mets right-hander Noah Syndergaard bears an uncanny resemblance to Marvel superhero Thor. Those flowing locks, that build, all he’s missing is the hammer and the ability to control thunder, of course.
