4/24/2015 | As win streak comes to an end, Mets focus on big picture

It's early. The Mets stressed that throughout their franchise record-tying 11-game winning streak, reminding themselves and others not to grow too brash. If they needed any additional reminder, Jacob deGrom's ERA provided it on Friday, bloating from 0.93 to 2.96 in a single game.

4/23/2015 | Baseball set to take over NY as Mets, Yanks collide

4/23/2015 | Resurgent Yankees square off with red-hot Mets

4/23/2015 | Ranking the best Mets defenders at each position

The breathtaking catch made in center field by Gold Glove Award winner Juan Lagares on Wednesday night was, as some Mets players said, inspirational. Well, it inspired this -- a position-by-position "best of" for Mets defenders, covering 53-plus seasons. Offense has no place in this evaluation.


4/23/2015 | Perfect homestand one for the record books

From a historian's vantage point, what the Mets are doing is similar to 1986. That year, the team also won 11 straight games in April, starting their summer 13-3. That is exactly where the 2015 Mets stand after 16 games, capping off a perfect 10-game homestand at Citi Field.

4/23/2015 | Mets make incredible 10-win streak a reality

Healthy or not, the Mets went to sleep on Wednesday night sporting the best record in Major League Baseball, thanks to a streak that stands one win shy of the longest this franchise has ever seen. They are tied for the best start in club history with the 1986 Mets, a team that folks in Flushing tend to remember.

4/23/2015 | Gee opens up in meeting with Collins, then delivers

Normally, Mets right-hander Dillon Gee considers himself the type of person to suppress his emotions. However, he had spent all night thinking after his last start on April 16 and needed to vent. The next day, Gee initiated a meeting with pitching coach Dan Warthen and manager Terry Collins to let off some frustration, stemming from the winter through Spring Training regarding his uncertainty within the team's rotation.

4/22/2015 | With Recker hurting, Mets trade for catching depth

The Mets acquired catcher Dan Rohlfing from the Twins for cash considerations on Wednesday, shortly after Anthony Recker was diagnosed with a bone spur in his right elbow that should not cost him any time. Recker plans to play through the condition for now, though he may need to have the spur removed after this season.


4/22/2015 | Rest recommended for Black, not surgery
