Keith Hernandez On WFAN: Braves Are Overrated, And NL East Is Up For Grabs

“Sooner or later, when it starts getting hot and (into) summer, someone’s gonna get hot and take control of the division. The Braves, I think they’re overrated. So this division is very much up for grabs.”

Keidel: It’s A Dark Day For The Dark Knight And His Fans

You don’t have to be a Mets fan to feel the loss. No one wins here. Even the most ardent Yankees groupie can find no humor in this. The city loses, the sport loses — and, as always, the Mets lose.

Hartnett: Presence Of Harvey, Wheeler Will Have Mets Contending In ’14

There will be fresh optimism when the Mets take the field on Opening Day in 2014, thanks to the Amazin’s dynamic duo of Matt Harvey and Zack Wheeler. Citi Field will no longer be the setting of gloomy Septembers and quiet Octobers.

Report: Mets Will Have To Be ‘Blown Away’ To Part With Byrd, Parnell

“We’re not motivated to move anybody,” a Mets official told the New York Post. “It’s hard to go to people, they have to come to you. It’s better to be asked to the prom than have to ask somebody.”

Kallet: Terry Collins Deserves Chance With Roster That Can Realistically Contend

Terry Collins’ contract will expire at the end of the season. I’m not suggesting that Fred Wilpon should give him a four-year extension. But I’d like to see him finally have a chance with a team that’s built to contend.

Mets OF Eric Young On Playoffs: We Can Fight For A Wild-Card Berth

Palladino: Wheeler Can’t Be Mets’ Savior — Because Harvey Already Is

If Wheeler turns into an equivalent mound presence as Harvey this year, all well and good. He might even become the second part of a 1-1A entry. But there’s no need to pressure Wheeler into becoming a savior. The Mets already have one.

Mets Manager Terry Collins: ‘I Respect The Fans Immensely’

“I respect the fans immensely,” Collins said. “I tell everybody that it’s about the fans. I don’t care who you’re a fan of. If you’re a baseball fan, you’re a fan, and certainly I meant no harm, no disrespect to them.”

LISTEN: Mike Francesa Rips ‘Unwatchable, Embarrassing, Loser’ Mets

“The Mets, when (starting pitcher Matt Harvey) doesn’t pitch now, are so bad that it is embarrassing,” Francesa said. “They are so listless. They are so unwatchable. This is as bad as I have ever seen it. This is Craig Swan bad for these Mets.”

Giglio: Despite Accolades, Harvey Hasn’t Reached Strasburg’s Level Yet

It’s not ridiculous to say that Harvey will turn out to be a more durable and superior pitcher than Strasburg. It’s just way too early to make that claim. Heading into Friday evening’s showdown at Citi, Strasburg is the superior arm.
