In case you missed it…

The Mets and D-Backs played 3½ innings at Citi Field on Friday, all of which was erased after the game was canceled following a two-hour rain delay.

The game will start over and be made up Sunday as a single-admission doubleheader >> Read more at MetsBlog.


The Mets hired Harold Kaufman to be executive director of communications. He previously worked in a similar role for the NBA’s New Orleans Pelicans and Charlotte Hornets.


Travid d’Arnaud is no longer experiencing concussion symptoms, he took batting practice Friday and is getting close to starting a rehab assignment.


Dillon Gee said he plans to throw off a mound Sunday, plus pitch in a minor-league rehab game next week, which puts him on schedule to return to the Mets starting rotation during the first week of June.

big start for Wheeler.  if he continues his downward spiral he could be back at AAA or he could be involved in a deal .    Noah could be his replacement in june.

QUESTION: Tell the truth, the METS are 4 games under 500, do you think that they can get above 500 and stay there? I don't believe that they can, and, here is why. They have trouble winning 4 games in a row, and, when they do,, they will drop 5 or 6. They cannot build upon a winning streak, they only seem to build on a loosing streak. They will drop 3 or 4 and break the loosing streak, then turn around and drop 2 or 3 more. That is not what a winning team or 500 team does.It sucks, but, 2015 is almost here.

Giving up on Travis D would be a mistake. Give the kid a couple of weeks in Vegas. Let him whack the ball and then bring him back.

@nagel100 @hankincolo  I am aware of KP, and hopefully, he provides competition. His hitting has been very good and so was TDA's in the minors. 

I'm not rooting for one over the other, I simply want the most talented guys to win the job. What I also want is a farm system run by a team that believes it can afford to trade young talent to bring proven talent to the Mets.
I suspect we all want that too. :)
