Mets official offers hilarious take on hypothetical Jacob deGrom trade

Will the New York Mets trade ace starter Jacob deGrom? For deGrom’s sake, we sure hope so.It’s reportedly on the menu, and one team official offered an interesting and hilarious take on the matter.Apparently, as far as the Mets are concerned, it all comes down to donuts. Naturally, this drew less than enthused responses from Mets’ fans. But really the Mets competence isn’t the question. The question here is, are all donuts the same? That’s a steep price, even for a Cy Young...

Report: Mets more open to trading Noah Syndergaard than Jacob deGrom

The New York Mets could be busy at this year’s trade deadline, but it sounds like they would prefer to move one of their star righties over the other.Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reported on Monday that the Mets are ready to listen to trade offers for virtually everyone on the roster. However, Rosenthal says they would be more open on Noah Syndergaard than on Jacob deGrom.Syndergaard, 25, is younger than deGrom, 29, and is also under contract for longer (through 2021 as opposed to through...

Mets will reportedly entertain trade offers heading into the July 31 deadline

It appears the Mets will be sellers this year

With just over six weeks to go until the July 31 non-waiver trade deadline, the New York Mets are reportedly ready to listen to trade offers on much of their current major league roster, according to Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic.

The Mets, who came into the season with playoff aspirations and started off red-hot by winning 11 of their first 12 games, are currently 10.5 games back of the Atlanta Braves in the National League East and eight games...

Mets looking for revenge against Rockies

Maybe the Coors effect can wake up the bats.

The New York Mets (30-38) have won two games in a row, which last happened when they won four straight from May 18 to May 21. They will look to make it a true winning streak over a four game set with the Colorado Rockies (34-37), who swept them in a three-game series at Citi Field as part of a six-game losing streak to start the month of May.

The Mets are coming off of one of their best wins of the season, a 5-3 comeback win over the NL...

Yoenis Cespedes and blaming athletes for being hurt

You can be disappointed he’s not playing, but not disappointed with him.

There was an interesting article from The Ringer’s Rodger Sherman last week that detailed a timeline of LeBron James’s postseason injuries. It makes an interesting point about the dichotomy of feelings LeBron creates: there are those that applaud him from bouncing back from seemingly serious injuries, and others that think he is playacting to oversell just how hurt he was in the moment.

Let’s talk about Yoenis...

Player Meter: Pitchers, June 11-17

A quick review of how the Mets’ pitchers fared over the past week.

Seth Lugo had his first poor start of the season, but the rest of the starting rotation pitched well enough to keep the Mets in the game. However, outside of Robert Gsellman, the bullpen had uneven performances across the board.

During Jeurys Familia’s time on the disabled list, Robert Gsellman has become the most relied upon member of the Mets bullpen. And one could argue that he already was prior to Familia’s...

Mets reportedly prepared to listen to trade offers

With the Mets mired in an abysmal slump that has seen the team go 3-11 in the month of June, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports in his latest notes column (subscription required) that the team is “open for business.” While the Mets understandably prefer to hang onto controllable players like Michael Conforto, Brandon Nimmo, Seth Lugo, Robert Gsellman and Jacob deGrom, Rosenthal notes that they’ll at the very least entertain offers for virtually anyone on the roster.It’s been...

Player Meter: Position players, June 11-17

A quick review of how the Mets’ position players fared over the past week.

The Mets spent most of the week in the offensive doldrums once more, getting swept by the Braves in a two game series in which they were shut out in the latter of the two games. However, they redeemed themselves over the weekend, winning the last two games of a four-game series against the Diamondbacks and breaking through for five runs in each game. Unfortunately, however, there are still a lot of down arrows to...

Triple-A: Las Vegas 51s (28-42)

OKLAHOMA CITY 5, LAS VEGAS 3 (BOX)

Corey Oswalt got off to a shaky start, allowing three runs in the bottom of the first, but settled down and put up zeroes for the rest of his time on the mound. Having scored in the first, the 51s brought the lead within one run when they scored in the sixth, but the bullpen let the team down. Kyle...

Mets Morning News for June 18, 2018

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

Meet the Mets

The Mets were down 3-1, had two outs in the ninth, Jose Reyes at the plate, and improbably they still won the ballgame! The Diamondbacks’ defense failed them which allowed Jose Bautista to double home Jose Reyes. Brandon Nimmo then gave the Mets the lead with an absolute blast and Asdrubal Cabrera added another for good measure. Despite a slip-up by Dominic Smith, Robert Gsellman closed the door to...

The game was somehow better than the shirt giveaway

The Mets got their groove back - and not a minute too soon.

From the bottom of the first inning until the top of the ninth, it looked like today would be another depressing, offense-less day for the 2018 Mets. The most enduring image of the game was the absolutely hideous “Hawaiian” shirt giveaway, adorned with various Diamondbacks ephemera. But then, with two outs in the top of the ninth, the bats awoke, and the Mets came back from a two-run deficit to beat the Diamondbacks 5-3.

Final Score: Mets 5, Diamondbacks 3 — Father’s Day is saved!

What is this feeling...is it joy?

The Mets dropped the series finale against the Diamondbacks, 3-2 came back with two outs in the ninth inning and won the game 5-3 at Chase Field this afternoon. After showing some offensive signs of life last night, the Mets waited until the last possible moment to bring the thunder yet again.

Zach Wheeler started for the Mets, and continued his solid season with a six-inning, two earned run performance, striking out eight and walking two. Wheeler’s...

Can the New York Mets still Compete in 2018?

Are the New York Mets finally coming back to life? Are they too far back to compete in 2018? Their offense has been dormant since May, but Saturday night saw the team rack up ten hits for the first time in 13 games. Those ten hits led the team to their first win since June 10 and the team’s second total win in June… Yes, you read that right, the New York Mets have a record of 2-12 in June. Jacob deGrom trade rumors have dominated the Mets’ news, is it time for the club to blow up their...

Noah Syndergaard makes funny reference to viral Terry Collins video

He did so in reference to Mets pitcher Robert Gsellman using the bullpen cart that the Arizona Diamondbacks have made available to relief...

New York Mets: Biggest trade assets

The New York Mets are long separated from their 11-1 start, having just won their second game in June last night against the Diamondbacks after losing 12 of 13. With exactly a month until the All-Star break, and the team showing no signs of turning it around, it is almost certainly time to call it quits and begin rebuilding for the future. The Mets do have a bunch of young talent to build around for the coming seasons, such as Michael Conforto, Amed Rosario and Brandon Nimmo. They do,...

Mets activate Jeurys Familia from disabled list, option Jacob Rhame to Vegas

The Mets have one of their very few good relievers back.

The Mets have activated Jeurys Familia from the disabled list and optioned Jacob Rhame to Triple-A Las Vegas to make room for him on the roster. Familia had hit the disabled list earlier this month with right shoulder soreness.

In 29.0 innings over the course of 28 appearances this year, Famila has been very good. He has a 2.48 ERA and 2.29 FIP with a 27.5 percent strikeout rate and a 7.5 percent walk rate. If his shoulder is okay and...
