They have now completed an entirely different deal with one of professional baseball’s most powerful player agents. The Mets have agreed with Van Wagenen to become their general manager, according to a source. The move will become official this week. A 44-year-old... more

Say hello to the Syracuse Mets
With New York state luminaries and high-ranking Mets officials in attendance in Syracuse on Tuesday, the Mets announced a pending agreement to keep the organization’s Triple-A affiliate there for at least the next quarter century. The Mets intend to sign a 25-year lease at NBT Bank Stadium, on which the state of New York, Onondaga County and the city of... more

Mets end rollercoaster season with Thor shutout
There is still baseball to be played across the country. In Los Angeles, the Dodgers and Rockies will contest a 163rd game to determine the NL West winner. Two Wild Card games remain, and three other rounds of postseason play. At the end of each, clubhouse attendants will hang plastic sheets in the winning team’s clubhouse, protecting valuables from the... more

Young Mets fall, but witness to emotional night

Young Mets fall, but witness to emotional night
On the last weekend of September, an amped-up crowd showed up to Citi Field on Friday to see David Wright’s first at-bat since May 27, 2016. For Corey Oswalt and these young pitchers out of the bullpen, playing in this sort of atmosphere was unlike anything they had ever experienced before in the big leagues. After the Mets announced prior... more

Thor bounces back, but Mets bullpen can’t close deal

Thor bounces back, but Mets bullpen can’t close deal
Despite being one of the better pitchers in the National League, Noah Syndergaard will still be kept up at night by the Braves, wondering what more he could have done. Atlanta is the one team in the National League (besides the Mets) against whom Syndergaard does not have a win. That tradition continued on Tuesday at Citi Field, when the... more

McNeil’s hot bat spurs Mets to rainy series win

McNeil’s hot bat spurs Mets to rainy series win
With each passing game, what Jeff McNeil is doing seems like less of a fluke. The prospect of him repeating it grows more plausible. The idea of keeping him as the Mets’ regular second baseman next season appears increasingly smart. It is difficult to deny what McNeil has accomplished over his first two months in the big leagues, rapping out... more

Oswalt a bright spot in Mets’ loss to Nats

Oswalt a bright spot in Mets’ loss to Nats
Outside of a few aches and pains here and there, the Mets’ rotation has stayed remarkably healthy this season. A group with significant injury concerns heading into the spring has quelled nearly all of them, with Jacob deGrom, Noah Syndergaard, Zack Wheeler and Steven Matz in particular combining to start 111 of the team’s first 155 games. As a result,... more

Syndergaard allows 2 homers in loss to Phillies

Syndergaard allows 2 homers in loss to Phillies
Jose Reyes has accrued 394 plate appearances at Citizens Bank Park over the years, and many of them have offered outcomes more interesting than when he pinch-hit for Noah Syndergaard in the top of the fifth inning of the Mets’ eventual 4-0 loss to the Phillies on Wednesday night. Reyes struck out after Tomas Nido did the same, and three... more

Mets put dent in postseason hopes for Phils

Mets put dent in postseason hopes for Phils
Zack Wheeler silenced any concerns that he might be fatigued in the Mets’ 9-4 win over the Phillies on Monday night at Citizens Bank Park. Wheeler, the club’s’ breakthrough pitcher of the second half, powered through a rough fifth inning to again go deep into the game, this time lasting seven frames. Robert Gsellman, Daniel Zamora and Drew Smith came... more

Jacob deGrom continues Cy Young push in Mets’ loss

Jacob deGrom continues Cy Young push in Mets’ loss
The Mets’ inability to support Jacob deGrom has done nothing to mute his routine excellence. If anything, the Mets’ foibles have only underscored it, giving deGrom, with two starts remaining, a realistic chance to win the National League Cy Young Award despite a losing record. Allowing three runs in seven innings Sunday at Fenway Park, deGrom extended his Major League... more

deGrom sets MLB record in loss to Marlins

deGrom sets MLB record in loss to Marlins
Among this season’s more telling statistics is the fact that, entering Tuesday’s play, Jacob deGrom led the Majors in pitches thrown in tied or one-run games. Unleashing more than three-quarters of his offerings in those situations, deGrom fashioned himself into a Cy Young candidate despite rarely being afforded the luxury of a mistake. “You’re always in this predicament where one... more

deGrom’s start washed out; twin bill for the Mets on Wednesday

deGrom’s start washed out; twin bill for the Mets on Wednesday
Jacob deGrom’s Cy Young push will have to wait another day … again. The Mets and Marlins have postponed Monday’s game at Citi Field due to rain, with a single-admission doubleheader scheduled for Wednesday beginning at 4:10 p.m. ET. Originally scheduled to start Sunday against the Phillies, deGrom was a late scratch due to the rainy forecast at Citi Field.... more
