Comprehensive and up-to-date New York Mets news, scores, schedule, stats and roster



 



Justin Turner is a postseason monster

Thu, 19 Oct 2017 06:32:54 GMT

A not-insignificant amount of the Dodgers’ success in recent years has to do with the emergence of Justin Turner. In his first five seasons with the Orioles and Mets, he was a forgettable infielder who had versatility, but no power. The Mets non-tendered him after the 2013 season, a move they now really regret.



Bob Geren, Chip Hale reportedly out of the running to be Mets manager

Wed, 18 Oct 2017 03:05:11 GMT

When Terry Collins's position officially opened, it was no surprise that Bob Geren's name was one of the first mentioned. With past managing experience and prior ties to the team, he is a classic Sandy Alderson managerial candidate, though whether he will be their final choice remains to be seen. While his career lacked the longevity of Alex Cora's, Geren saw his share of playing time, spending four years catching for the Yankees, and one more for San Diego. After retiring at age 32, he took on managing roles for Red Sox minor league teams, before moving over to the Athletics organization in similar roles. It was in Oakland that he got his first shot at the major leagues, first as bullpen coach



For Cubs, it looks like 2015 all over again as Dodgers ready the brooms in NLCS

Wed, 18 Oct 2017 06:40:43 GMT

Just one defeat away from suffering the same fate the pre-World Series Cubs did two years ago, the similarities are most definitely present, chiefly in that the bats have gone completely silent against an elite pitching staff. Of course you'll remember that four-game set with the New York Mets, when a young starting rotation looked like it was entering a decade-long stretch of dominance by carving up the then-upstart Cubs. Matt Harvey, Noah Syndergaard and Jacob deGrom combined to limit the Cubs to five runs over 20.1 innings in the first three games of that series.



A look at the reported candidates for Mets manager

Tue, 17 Oct 2017 21:00:45 GMT

The Mets have started conducting their managerial interviews. Here is a look at the names that are in the mix... The 50-year-old Long, who expressed his interest in the job to Alderson, does not have any big league managerial experience. He was the hitting coach for the Yankees from 2007 to 2014, before taking the same role with the Mets prior to the 2015 season. He is returning to the Mets in 2018, but it isn't yet known what his role will be. Cora, 41, played for the Mets from 2009 to 2010. He has no managerial experience, and his coaching career began this season. Astros manager A.J. Hinch recently spoke glowingly of Cora recently. "His relatability skills to players, his baseball intellect



Robin Ventura not interested in managing

Wed, 18 Oct 2017 01:48:56 GMT

The parade of Mets managerial candidates has included a number of familiar faces, but perhaps none more familiar than Joe McEwing, who spent five years in Queens as a bench player. While fans' affection for McEwing often outpaced his skill on the field, he has spent the years since his 2008 retirement in a variety of coaching roles with the White Sox organization, and his good reputation has earned him an interview with the Mets this week. McEwing was in many ways the quintessential utility player. In his five seasons with the Mets, "Super Joe" saw time at every position except pitcher and catcher. He eked out a league average batting line in only one season, but was a solid defender and was
