Coleman: Might The Mets Target Slugger Jonny Gomes If Scott Hairston Departs?

Coleman: Third Place? Fourth Place? Does It Really Matter, Mets Fans?

Third place? Fourth place? Look, any place that isn’t first place or a place that means a playoff spot should really be immaterial to anyone who plays for, roots for, or follows a team.

Coleman: Mets Don’t Expect Dickey, Wright To Go Reyes Route

“We’ll see exactly where we land,” GM Sandy Alderson said Sunday. Well, hopefully on their feet — with Wright and Dickey in house and on board. Season-ticket holders and other fans will not be settling for less.

Coleman: Mets Sliding To A Six-Man Rotation A Question Mark

Both Atlanta and the Mets are currently in the midst of employing six-man rotations. The Braves for the right reasons, the Mets for the right intentions, but not necessarily to the benefit of all those involved.

Coleman: Who’s Hot, Who’s Not And Mets’ West Coast Swing Wrapup

7-4 with a Matt Harvey capper on Sunday in San Diego would have been terrific, but 6-5 is nothing to sneeze at.

Coleman: R.A. Dickey And The Mets’ Rotation Situation

You can’t discount R.A. every fourth day. Manager Terry Collins said it’s going to happen, while Mets general manager Sandy Alderson was a little more cautious.

Coleman: Pitching Health Tops Mets’ List Of Second Half Question Marks

So, can one of the biggest surprise teams in the first half (46-40) continue to surprise moving towards the finish line? Well, they need some things to change – and some to remain the same.

Coleman: Mets Get Offensive

17 runs. Bonanza!!! Ever since demolishing Tampa Bay in Florida, the Mets had averaged just a measly 3.4 runs per game over the next 11 while losing 7 of them, so Wednesday must have seemed like Christmas to them.
