Report: Mets expect Terry Collins to retire after the season

The New York Mets are closing up what has been a disastrous and injury-plagued season for the franchise. They are also being led by a manager in Terry Collins who isn’t under contract following the 2017 campaign. There have obviously been calls in New York for the Mets to go in a completely different direction at manager. After seven seasons with the club, maybe it’s time for Collins to simply move on. Now comes this report from Kristie Ackert of the NY Daily News indicating that those...

Terry Collins Reportedly Expected to Retire After Season

New York Mets manager Terry Collins has not publicly decided on his future, but this could be his last season in baseball.

According to Kristie Ackert of the New York Daily News, team sources expect Collins to retire at the end of the season.

The 68-year-old is in the final year of his contract with the Mets.

Collins has hinted that 2017 could be his final year since last fall.

"I've always said a lot of it will be dictated by how I'm feeling," he said last October, per ESPN's Adam Rubin....

Mets’ Sandy Alderson likely to return, Terry Collins less so

Speculation season is off and running!

As the Mets finish limping towards the end of a frustrating, painful season—one that both general manager Sandy Alderson and manager Terry Collins entered in the final season of their contracts—thoughts inevitably turn towards the future, or lack thereof, of current management. Conventional wisdom has held that Alderson would return, and recent reports seem to hew to that, indicating that he will be back “running the team.” Whether that means he...

deGrom under weather, Mets juggle rotation

Another ailment struck a Mets rotation member this week, when Jacob deGrom complained Wednesday of nausea and an upset stomach in Miami. DeGrom received treatment at Marlins Park and returned to New York with the team, but the Mets have pushed back his next scheduled start to give him more time to recuperate.

Mets forced to change rotation as flu claims another victim

Jacob deGrom is the second Mets player this week to suffer from nausea and an upset stomach in Miami. All season, people have joked about the Mets being struck by the plague. The injuries have been catastrophic and left the team nearing the 90-loss mark.  Well, it might not be a joke.  Jacob deGrom, one of just two pitchers from the opening day roster who haven't gone on the disabled list this season (left-handed reliever Jerry Blevins is the other), won't...

Report: Sandy Alderson to Return as Mets GM Next Year

According to Kristie Ackert of the New York Daily News, general manager Sandy Alderson will return to the New York Mets next season.

Who Should Mets Bring Back: Reyes or Cabrera, Possibly Both?

Two of the New York Mets best players for the month of September have been veteran infielders Jose Reyes and Asdrubal Cabrera fueling the debate of which one should be brought back next year. Reyes has not only been the Mets best player in September but he’s also been one of the most productive players in baseball with a fWAR 1.0 that’s tied with Aaron Judge and multiple others for the eighth best in the majors. Reyes is slashing a robust .318/.408/.591 with five home runs, 15 RBI and...

D’Arnaud And Plawecki’s Bats Catching Fire In September

It has been a while since the Mets have had legitimate offensive production out of the catcher position. On this date 16 years ago, Mike Piazza hit a game-winning home run against the Braves just ten days after 9/11. While expecting Piazza numbers out of your catcher, or anyone for that matter, is unreasonable, is 2006 Paul Lo Duca too much to ask for? In the month of September, Mets catchers are putting on a show the team hasn’t seen in years. Travis d’Arnaud, Kevin Plawecki, and Tomas...

3 Up, 3 Down: Mets Fish Fried In Marlins Sweep

3 UP 1.  d’Arnaud Loves Miami Travis d’Arnaud has struggled much of the season at the plate with an 85 OPS+ and 86 wRC+.  But that’s just when he plays anywhere other than in Miami.  In Miami, d’Arnaud is the player the Mets always expected him to be. In 10 games at Marlins Park this season, d’Arnaud is hitting .440/.500/.880 with a double, triple, three homers, and eight RBI. In fact, he’s been a difference maker in Marlins Park dating back to his game winning homer in that...

Mets Morning News: Mets swept in Miami, Matt Harvey likely to remain a Met next year

Your Thursday morning dose of New York Mets and MLB news, notes, and links.

Meet the Mets

Rafael Montero reverted back to his old ways and gave up five runs in four innings. The rest of the bullpen was ok until Erik Goeddel allowed the Marlins to pile on late. He gave up three home runs to bring the Marlins’ total to four for the day. Brandon Nimmo also hit a home run and Travis d’Arnaud drove in a run but that was all the offense could do against Marlins’ pitching. They now have an...

Montero Can’t Make it Five Innings for Second Straight Start

There has been a lot of talk about Rafael Montero turning a corner and being a bright spot in a gloomy 2017 season for the New York Mets. However, Montero has struggled in his last two starts including getting knocked around by the Miami Marlins on Wednesday night in the Mets 9-2 loss. For the second straight outing Montero was unable to make to the fifth inning, going only four innings. In those four innings, he allowed five runs on seven hits and two walks. He struck out only two, the...

Where have you gone, Matt Harvey?

Matt Harvey has left us. Or, better stated, the Harvey we loved has. A combination of untimely injury – really, when is an injury ever timely? – slow recovery, diminished effectiveness and a little bit of his own bad judgment have conspired to threaten what was once limitless potential. Those first three conspirators are connected, of course. We knew it was bad during his magic 2013 season, when he was scratched from a start with “slight forearm stiffness” at the beginning of...

Sandy Alderson Suggests Mets Will Likely Retain Matt Harvey For 2018

Despite the increasingly worrying health issues and pitching struggles of former Mets ace Matt Harvey, the club isn’t ready to give up on his talent. As GM Sandy Alderson tells Mike Puma of the New York Post, “it’s high unlikely that we’re not going to bring [Harvey] back next year.” Harvey is still just 28 years old and isn’t far removed from being one of the game’s most dominant starters. If there was concern when he limped to a 4.86 ERA in 17 starts last year, though,...

‘Highly unlikely’ Mets risk Harvey burning them — with another team

MIAMI — Matt Harvey could be the most expensive mop-up pitcher in the major leagues next season, an inexpensive ace for another team or something in between. The Mets appear willing to gamble on the disappointing right-hander, even at the risk of potentially wasting $6 million in 2018 should the struggles that have defined Harvey’s...

Dark Days For The Dark Knight

It’s been years since fans got excited about Harvey Day. What used to be a holiday is now a topic that draws rants from Mets fans. How can someone that was so good now be pitching so bad? Will we ever get Harvey back? Will he learn to pitch with diminished velocity? “There is no reason for questions, there are no answers,” Harvey said after his last start. “You are going to write what you want to write anyways, obviously it’s deserved. Whatever you want to write, there is nothing...

This is the Rafael Montero the Mets didn’t want to resurface

MIAMI — Rafael Montero’s ride was fun while it lasted, but lately he has pitched like Rafael Montero. Entrusted with preventing the Mets from getting swept in a three-game series by the Marlins, the right-hander struggled Wednesday and was knocked out after four innings. The Mets were destroyed 9-2 at Marlins Park to complete a...

Rosario Feels “A Lot Better” After Stomach Illness

Mets shortstop Amed Rosario was in the Mets clubhouse Wendesday morning and felt “a lot better.” Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports that he attributed his stomach illness to an improperly cooked meal he ate over the weekend. Whether or not he is available to play by the Mets’ next game remains to be seen. “We’re hoping,” manager Terry Collins said. “He’s got to get some food in him. He hasn’t eaten very much. When we feel that his strength and stamina is back, we’ll get...
