9/28/2016 | Familia becomes 1st Dominican to reach 50 saves

Whenever Jeurys Familia notches a new saves milestone, Mets manager Terry Collins likes to tell the story of his ascension to the closer's role. Collins tells the tale as if it happened decades ago. In reality, it has been 17 months.


9/28/2016 | Loney, Bruce homer as Mets stay atop WC

Days shy of October, Mets manager Terry Collins' head is swimming with the possibilities of postseason play. There are tiebreakers to consider, play-in games and National League Wild Card scenarios running every which way.

Because they happened to be in Miami the day after Marlins pitcher Jose Fernandez died in a boating accident, the Mets became intertwined with much of the week's sadness.

9/28/2016 | Tebow homers on first instructional league pitch

It was the first chance for Tim Tebow to show that everything he'd done was worth it -- the change of sports, the open workout for nearly every Major League team, the ensuing media and fan circus that followed everything he did.

9/27/2016 | Thor ready to strike hammer in big game after tune-up

When Noah Syndergaard next climbs atop a Major League mound, there is a good chance he will be starting the Mets' most important game of the season. Either the Mets will need Syndergaard to pitch them into the postseason this Sunday in Philadelphia, or they will need him to win the National League Wild Card game.


9/27/2016 | Duda playing way back into everyday role

When Lucas Duda returned to the Mets this September following a four-month absence, there was a chance he would not be of much use to them. There was a chance Duda's timing at the plate would never reemerge, considering his complete lack of rehab at-bats against even Minor League pitching.


9/27/2016 | Mets, Marlins conclude season series in Miami

9/27/2016 | Yo, Bruce homer to back Thor in WC hunt

9/27/2016 | Flores unlikely to return this season

Continued pain in Wilmer Flores' right wrist should spell the end of the infielder's season. Flores attempted to swing a bat on Monday, but he was forced to stop due to wrist pain.

9/27/2016 | Mets sign Fernandez jersey to honor Marlins ace

9/27/2016 | In Miami, Mets' solidarity 'deeper than just baseball'

9/27/2016 | Mets can't help but feel ripples of jarring loss

Bartolo Colon stood immobile on the pitcher's mound, a foot or two from the rubber, gazing into the Marlins' dugout.

Inside, a man who has seen so much over a quarter-century in baseball was melting.


9/26/2016 | Tearful return: Emotional Marlins win

Jose Fernandez's presence was everywhere on Monday night, and collectively, the Marlins fed off the energy.

9/26/2016 | Matz sees doctor; season most likely over

For at least the fourth time since reporting discomfort in his left shoulder in mid-August, Mets left-hander Steven Matz visited a doctor in Manhattan on Monday for a checkup. Though Mets staff members in Miami did not know details of his visit as of Monday afternoon, they did indicate that Matz's stalled progress means he almost certainly will not return this season.


9/26/2016 | Wound still raw, Marlins try to remain focused

The memorial for Jose Fernandez outside Marlins Park will not vanish overnight. Nor will the pain. For manager Terry Collins' Mets, however, Tuesday's game represents another integral part of a postseason push. Noah Syndergaard, who missed his last start due to strep throat, will start opposite Tom Koehler.


9/25/2016 | Gsellman ascending ranks of Mets' rotation

9/25/2016 | Mets fondly recall Fernandez's 'love for the game'

In the hours following Jose Fernandez's death in a boating accident early Sunday morning, the Mets focused their energies not on remembering the pitcher they battled and respected so many times over the past four seasons.

9/25/2016 | With heavy hearts, Mets and Marlins begin series

9/24/2016 | Young Mets keep battling with spirited rally

For months now, the Mets have patched their rotation with spare parts and bubble gum. And it's worked.
