“The notion that this team is all of a sudden, next year, going to be locked and loaded to win is becoming more comical day by day,” Carton said.
By the end of his team’s latest deflating loss, Carlos Torres was punching himself in the head. Hard. It’s been that kind of month for the Mets.
Jacob deGrom didn’t get much help from his teammates — or the umpires, for that matter. And that’s what led to an early exit for manager Terry Collins.
General manager Sandy Alderson said there is nothing wrong with Matt Harvey. In fact the 25-year-old’s recovery might have been going too well.
It’s nothing new in these parts. Mets have become the heel against which the loose shoe rubs. Only numbness exists along with a patch of ugly derma.
The Mets are in freefall, but manager Terry Collins isn’t on the hot seat, according to the Daily News. At least not yet.
Gregor Blanco doubled, singled and drove in three runs, and the surging San Francisco Giants beat the New York Mets 6-4 on Sunday for their fifth consecutive win.
For the second straight game, the Mets took an early lead and looked to be in control. For the second straight night, their inability capitalize on opportunities cost them in a one-run game.
On some occasions when Terry Collins speaks to the assembled media, he has a tough time getting his point across in a manner which can be easily understood.
Between prized prospects getting hurt and hitting coaches getting fired, there’s been a lot of elbowing around the Amazin’s these days.
Fired hitting coach Dave Hudgens says players have been “trying too hard” at Citi Field — and not just because of the ballpark’s pitcher-friendly dimensions.
Terry Collins probably said it best after Monday’s brutal loss and subsequent firing of hitting coach Dave Hudgens: “S— happens.” But then again, a lot of #*!@ happens to these Mets.
The Mets got 13 hits and another encouraging outing from rookie Jacob deGrom. That still wasn’t enough to overcome the homer-happy Dodgers.
I’m sure all the Terry Collins bashers had a field day after Juan Lagares’ big game Saturday. But keep in mind — the Mets’ manager is not dumb.
“He got into a little bit of a funk,” the Mets manager said Sunday. “It’s not like I sat him for seven days. I sat him for two days, for cripes sake. We’re getting a little carried away here.”
