The Mets are no different than any other major league club, says manager Terry Collins – overtax the bullpen and the problems will inherently ensue.
Who are these guys? The Beasts of the East, that’s who. Mets manager Terry Collins stated this spring – “We’re better than people think we are” – and his team has set out to prove him right.
Remember, this team is still young and inexperienced. Watch out for the speed bumps.
Mets fans just watched one of their supposed franchise players return to Citi Field wearing the uniform of a different team. They should hope that for the sake of a better future, the other franchise guy sticks around sporting his trademark # 5.
Well, it had to end sometime, didn’t it?
Amidst a sea of doubts about whether he would make it through spring training and even be in the Mets rotation for 2012, Santana was officially tabbed as the Opening Day starter on Sunday.
Mets manager Terry Collins and Johan Santana have both had a firm resolve that Santana would indeed be the Opening Day starter
The Mets trimmed their roster down to 32 on Thursday by making six cuts, none of them surprising.
The discussion of sexual abuse is so often hidden by shame, and Dickey feels it has to be more out in the open.
Number 5 was back in his usual spot – third in the lineup and at 3B – and both he and the Mets couldn’t have been happier. The whole process felt pretty good to David Wright.
Wright was expected to be in the starting lineup on Tuesday when the Mets have the first of three straight home games, but felt good enough after taking batting practice on Sunday against two minor league pitchers to bump it up a day.
Mike Pelfrey was a much different pitcher on Saturday, and that was a relief both to him and the Mets.
If the Mets keep pitching this way, those lowered expectations might have to be raised.
It was another uplifting day for Johan Santana and the Mets. Santana delivered his best and longest outing of the spring against an “A” Cardinals lineup in Jupiter, and manager Terry Collins was ecstatic afterward.
The good vibes engendered by the settlement of the Madoff lawsuit continues. The cloud that had long encased the organization in doom and gloom had seemingly lifted, and manager Terry Collins felt quite pleased for the principals involved.
