7/21/2014 | A look back at Wright's decade of greatness

Monday marked the 10-year anniversary of David Wright donning a Mets uniform for the first time. Here's a look at five of the greatest moments for arguably the greatest player in franchise history.

7/20/2014 | Mets avoid being no-hit, can't avoid walk-off loss

In what would have been an ironic twist of baseball fate, the Mets on Sunday nearly became victims of the first no-hitter in San Diego history. Instead, Daniel Murphy broke up Odrisamer Despaigne's bid with two outs in the eighth inning of a 2-1, walk-off loss that proved just as dispiriting for entirely different reasons.

7/20/2014 | Dice-K back to bullpen as Niese returns from DL

Few were surprised Sunday morning when the Mets announced that left-hander Jon Niese will return from the disabled list to start Monday's series opener in Seattle. But the announcement did result in an unfortunate byproduct for Daisuke Matsuzaka, who officially returned to the bullpen after a month and a half spent mostly as a starter.

7/20/2014 | Niese returns to Mets as Wright celebrates milestone

On Sunday, when the Mets open a three-game series in Seattle against the Mariners, David Wright will celebrate the 10th anniversary of his Major League debut, while Jon Niese will return to the mound to square off against the Mariners' Roenis Elias.

7/19/2014 | Impressive Despaigne takes on surging Mets

Odrisamer Despaigne has been impressive thus far, but when he takes to the Petco Park mound on Sunday opposite fellow right-hander Zack Wheeler, the Mets simply will be looking to add him to a list of high-caliber hurlers they've defeated.

7/19/2014 | Off night for Mets results in loss to Padres

Even if the Mets have come pretty darn close of late, winning every night is not realistic. So they could not fret too much when they lost on Saturday, 6-0, to the Padres, in a game that saw them struggle from start to finish. Dillon Gee gave up two home runs, the Mets allowed three as a team and Tyson Ross pitched seven shutout innings for the home team.

7/19/2014 | Collins staying out of trade discussions

As trade rumors become increasingly prevalent, it is natural for everyone from Sandy Alderson to the players in the clubhouse to begin thinking about them. Manager Terry Collins refuses to join that club. He has no plans to lobby for specific upgrades, instead putting the club's strategy in the GM's hands.

7/19/2014 | d'Arnaud cementing his role in five-spot

Not only is he finally establishing himself in the bigs, Travis d'Arnaud is beginning to do so in a specific offensive role, and his recent success has entrenched him in the fifth spot in the lineup.

7/18/2014 | d'Arnaud picks up Mets with ninth-inning RBI

Travis d'Arnaud hit a go-ahead single in the ninth inning Friday night, leading the Mets to a 5-4 victory over the Padres for their ninth win in 11 games. "It meant a lot," manager Terry Collins said. "It really showed the guys that they're still in that zone right now."

7/18/2014 | Gee looks to keep rolling for Mets in San Diego

Mets right-hander Dillon Gee may not be getting a mind-blowing amount of run support this season, but his Padres counterpart Saturday would love that same level of offense. All-Star righty Tyson Ross has given up two or fewer runs in each of his last five starts. Over that span, the Padres have contributed a total of eight runs to his cause.

7/18/2014 | Road trip to help GM choose course for Trade Deadline

As the non-waiver Trade Deadline approaches, Mets general manager Sandy Alderson painted the picture of a Mets team more likely to buy than sell -- should the club decide to do anything. "I think we have flexibility," he said. "It depends on where we are and how we're performing."

7/18/2014 | Niese expects to return from DL for Monday start

Mets left-hander Jon Niese "felt good" after throwing 28 pitches in a bullpen session Friday, keeping him on track to come off the disabled list and start Monday in Seattle.

7/18/2014 | Top pick Conforto set for pro debut with Brooklyn

The Mets' 2014 first-round Draft pick Michael Conforto is scheduled to make his professional debut Saturday with Class A Brooklyn. Conforto, who officially signed on July 11, hit .345 with seven home runs in 59 games in his final season with Oregon State.

7/16/2014 | Mets playing better, but at a crossroads

While plenty of things have gone New York's way since Opening Day -- the rotation's success, the bullpen's rebirth and the lineup's recent emergence, to name three on a general scale -- the Mets still sit in the shadows of playoff contention.

7/16/2014 | Murphy has 'blast' at ASG, now focused on Mets

Reality will soon return for Daniel Murphy, and that's not necessarily a bad thing; reality is pretty good for the All-Star these days. Following two off-days, the Mets will put their finest hot streak of the season -- eight wins in 10 games -- on the line this weekend in San Diego. Murphy, fresh off his first career All-Star appearance, will be a big part of that.

7/15/2014 | AL-Americans: Jeter, Trout spark victory

Mike Trout delivered the go-ahead hit and the game's first run, winning the All-Star MVP Award, but it was Derek Jeter who stole the show in his final Midsummer Classic. Jeter went 2-for-2 with a run scored to set the tone for the AL, which won home-field advantage in the World Series.

7/14/2014 | Right on Target: Stars align at Twins' home park

It's regarded as one of baseball's best parks, and Target Field will be on full display Tuesday night when the game's best players take the field for the 85th annual All-Star Game. "It's a big moment," said Twins manager Ron Gardenhire. "It's a big thing for us. It's well-deserved. A lot of people have put a lot of work in here at the stadium."

7/14/2014 | Years of hard work lead Murphy to All-Star Game

National League manager Mike Matheny invited Mets second baseman Daniel Murphy to the All-Star Game for his hitting ability, unquestionably. But without an adequate glove to support those skills, Murphy never would have qualified for this stage

7/13/2014 | Syndergaard closes and hopes door re-opens

At the Futures Game, Noah Syndergaard enjoyed a businesslike ninth, working around a two-out single to preserve a one-run lead. He was joined by his new batterymate at Las Vegas, catcher Kevin Plawecki, who caught five innings for the US Team and plated the game's first run on an RBI groundout.

7/13/2014 | Mets visit SD, trying to pick up where they left off

Tabbed to open the Padres' rotation after the All-Star break, Ian Kennedy ended his first half with a season-high eight shutout innings Saturday. Kennedy and the Friars will open the second half against a hot Mets team that entered the break with eight wins in their previous 10 games.

7/13/2014 | Wright gets planned cortisone shot for shoulder

David Wright gave no indication on the field Sunday that his left shoulder is still bothering him, as he doubled twice, drove in a pair of runs and even robbed Miami's Donovan Solano of a single in the eighth inning with a diving stop. After the game, though, the Mets captain received a cortisone shot in that shoulder, which caused him to miss eight games June 27-July 4 with what the team called a bruised rotator cuff.

7/13/2014 | deGrom, Mets stay hot, sweep Fish to rise in East

The Mets wrapped up their homestand Sunday with a 9-1 win over the Marlins to complete the series sweep and give the club its eighth win in its last 10 games.

7/13/2014 | Mets set rotation for first post-break series

When the Mets reconvene in San Diego after the All-Star break for a three-game series with the Padres, a trio of right-handers will get the ball, according to manager Terry Collins. Bartolo Colon, Dillon Gee and Zack Wheeler -- in that order -- will make their first starts of the second half during that first weekend.

7/12/2014 | deGrom eyes encore as Mets go for sweep of Fish

Looking to cap an impressive first half, Jacob deGrom will face the Marlins for the second time in a month Sunday, though his first outing against them will be hard to top.

7/12/2014 | Mets use pinch-hits to rally in front of rowdy crowd

As Travis d'Arnaud slid across home plate in the eighth on an Eric Campbell looper to center, the Citi Field crowd rose to its feet for the first Mets lead of the day. d'Arnaud's run stood as the game-winner in the Mets' 5-4 win over the Marlins on Saturday, their seventh win in nine games this homestand.
