Mets’ pitiful bullpen spoils Terry Collins’ birthday

PITTSBURGH — For his 68th birthday Saturday, manager Terry Collins closed his eyes, blew out candles and began signaling to the bullpen. Just when it appeared the Mets had survived the worst of it, Addison Reed sat in the cake, before rookie Tyler Pill and Josh Edgin threw it against the wall. Pill, in his...

Gut Reaction: Pirates 5, Mets 4 (10 INN) 5/27/17

The birthday boy Terry Collins won’t sleep very well tonight, as the Pirates defeated the Mets 5-4 tonight. The now 68 year-old managed his team to a tied Saturday night. Although the team received solid production from both sides of the ball and entered the ninth with a 4-3 lead, the Mets were unable to pull through. Zack Wheeler pitched well, allowing three earned runs over six innings pitched, striking out five along the way. The Mets need more starts like tonight from the likes of...

Final Score: Pirates 5, Mets 4—Jaso with a one-two punch to the face-o

The Mets snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.

Zack Wheeler tossed six solid innings tonight and the bullpen looked pretty good for a while, but then things fell apart and the Mets lost to the Pirates 5-4 in ten innings.

The Mets held a 4-3 lead in the bottom of the ninth, but Addison Reed allowed a run on three hits and the Pirates sent the game to extra innings. In the bottom of the tenth, Tyler Pill loaded the bases in his major league debut, and Josh Edgin came on to allow a...

How weather could take away rotation shot from Mets call-up

PITTSBURGH — Tyler Pill is the front-runner for the upcoming vacancy in the Mets’ rotation, but manager Terry Collins stopped short Saturday of naming the rookie to that spot. The Mets have an opening Tuesday, following the demotion of Rafael Montero, who struggled through three innings in a spot start against the Padres on Thursday....

How Mets rookie reliever convinced himself and Collins he belongs

PITTSBURGH — In the Mets’ desperation to find dependability from the bullpen, Paul Sewald has seized an opportunity. Once an afterthought, the rookie right-hander is showing he can be trusted in the biggest spots. Other than closer Addison Reed, there might not be a reliever manager Terry Collins has come to trust more than Sewald...

Despite Front Office Frustration, Terry Collins Has Fred Wilpon’s Steadfast Support

In a report by Mike Puma of the New York Post on Thursday, the Mets front office and general manager Sandy Alderson were irked by some of the on-field moves manager Terry Collins during the last homestand that ended with a series loss to the San Diego Padres. The report cited three specific instances that really bothered Alderson; they included how Collins mishandled Matt Harvey and Tommy Milone in their last starts, and Collins’ insistence to keep giving playing time to Curtis...

In fact, Mets owner Fred Wilpon is said to have emerged as the manager’s “most ardent supporter...

Mets vs. Pirates Recap: Neil Walker enjoys his return to Pittsburgh, Jacob deGrom dominates

It is no longer a Pirate’s life for Neil Walker.

The 8-1 victory in the opening game against the Pirates was a feel-good, low stress-type of win the Mets had been sorely lacking the first two months of the season. After the lamentable series against the Padres, Jacob deGrom was a gleaming oasis on the mound after all of the gloom.

deGrom did not get the start in the finale against San Diego because there was a threat of rain. Rafael Montero got the start instead, and the striking...

Mets pitching staff needs many more starts like Jacob deGrom’s

PITTSBURGH — Has a team ever needed a laugher like these Mets did Friday night at PNC Park? Shoot, the Mets could register a month straight of laughers, and they probably still would show signs of post-traumatic stress disorder from everything this young season already has wrought.

Final Score: Mets 8, Pirates 1-Back on track

Both the offense and pitching was on point against Pittsburgh.

The Mets got a much needed 8-1 victory against the Pirates. Neil Walker did the most damage against him former team with two long home runs and four RBIs. Collectively the offense was on point with some struggling Mets getting in on the action. Curtis Granderson put the Mets on the board early, Jay Bruce had a double and a RBI, and Lucas Duda looks like he might be heading toward one of his hot streaks.
