Poll: Should the Mets have made different free agent choices and signed Carlos Rodon?

Once the lockout was lifted, one of the first free agents signed was Carlos Rodon, who inked a 2/$44 deal with the Giants, with an opt-out clause after the first season. Rodon was my preferred pitcher for the Mets to add. There's no denying Rodon's injury history. But with guys like Tylor Megill and David [...]

Poll: Which player on the trade block will have the best 2022?

It's no secret that the Mets are ready and willing to move J.D. Davis, Jeff McNeil and Dominic Smith. That sentence would have been nearly unimaginable this time last year. Sure, they might have been willing to deal Davis but not the other two. But then 2021 happened. Is the team's willingness to deal guys [...]

Poll: How should Mets treat Carlos Carrasco’s first-inning troubles?

It’s hard to say which has been more disappointing this season – losing Carlos Carrasco for half the year or watching him pitch once he came off the IL. All of the focus has been what he’s done in the first inning and it’s hard to argue with that focus. Carrasco has a 14.73 ERA [...]

Syndergaard expressed [...]

Poll: How many wins will Mets get in next 13 games against the Dodgers and Giants?

The Mets will now play their toughest stretch of the season, as they play 13 consecutive games against the Dodgers and Giants. The good news is that after playing their worst ball of the year, the Mets have won three straight games and the offense seems to be showing signs of life. The bad news [...]

Poll: As we near the quarter-mark of the season, how do you feel about the Mets?

After 37 games, the Mets are in first place despite an offense that wasn't producing much when healthy and which now is decidedly unhealthy. The pitching staff was for the most part very good when healthy and now is decidedly unhealthy. The team is 11-4 at home and 9-13 on the road. They are 9-7 [...]

Poll: Which Mets performance would you like to see most for 162 games?

We know all the negatives. There's the shaky defense, the less than stellar bullpen, the surprising lack of power and the struggles with RISP. But there's been some good things, real good things happening. We take Jacob deGrom's magnificence for granted but he's been good, even for him. James McCann has been a great defensive [...]
