Cabrera on game ejection 00:01:08
Asdrubal Cabrera explains his argument with umpire Angel Hernandez that resulted in an ejection from Thursday's game.

Mets SS Asdrubal Cabrera was ejected by home plate umpire Angel Hernandez during Thursday's 1-0 loss to the Nationals in West Palm Beach, FL.

Cabrera was irritated after asking for a time out during his at-bat, which was not being granted by Hernandez. On the next pitch, Cabrera lined a single to center field. Running to first base, he glanced back at Hernandez, who ejected him after Cabrera arrived to first base.

"I've never seen that before," Cabrera said when asked about that kind of confrontation with an umpire during Spring Training...

Maggie Wiggin, MetsBlog.com:

With the roster largely set, the Mets have begun looking at lineup construction to maximize the offense from a team that underperformed for much of last season. As usual for this team, one of the spots still pending a long-term answer is leadoff.

When Jose Reyes is starting, it's largely a given that he will bat leadoff, assuming his bounceback 2016 numbers continue to hold steady. With major question marks surrounding David Wright's health, this may very well resolve the leadoff issue for the bulk of the season. 

The vast majority of Reyes's career plate appearances have come out of the leadoff spot and despite no longer displaying the stolen base prowess that secured him that spot in his youth (nor the on base percentage that tends to define the classic leadoff hitter nowadays), his reputation and general offensive competence will certainly place him there for the foreseeable future...

When Jose Reyes doesn't start, the main options for the Mets at leadoff will be Asdrubal CabreraCurtis Granderson, and Neil Walker, manager Terry Collins said recently.

Reyes hit .267 with a .326 OBP and .443 SLG with eight HR, 13 doubles, four triples, and nine stolen bases in 60 games for the Mets last season.

He's expected to hit leadoff when he starts, but the Mets' starting infield from left to right as of now is expected to be David Wright, Cabrera, Walker, and Lucas Duda.

Granderson has had lots of experience hitting leadoff, but Collins is wary about moving him from the middle of the lineup...

The big-name players on the Mets are all spending way more time together on and off field than I recall seeing here in previous spring trainings. That said, Jose Reyes, Asdrubal Cabrera and Yoenis Cespedes are close to inseparable.

They stretch together, they hit in the same groups, they eat together before and after practice, and they joke around in the field and at the cage. They're clearly doubling down on the friendship they began building last summer.

Hopefully, that escalation doesn't end in St. Lucie, but continues to grow and fuel the team's run production like it did during the second half in 2016...

Mets INF Asdrubal Cabrera is upset with Team Venezuela GM Carlos Guillen, who he says decided to leave him off the World Baseball Classic roster.

Cabrera noted that Venezuela's manager Omar Vizquel told him he was on the team but was overruled by Guillen.

Among the words Cabrera used to describe Guillen were "unreliable," "untrue," and "shameless," according to James Wagner of the NY Times.

Cabrera, who played winter ball for Venezuela, said earlier this offseason that he planned to play for Venezuela during the World Baseball Classic, which begins next month.

Mets SS Asdrubal Cabrera feels great, especially after playing several games games in January for Venezuela's winter ball team, he told the Daily News.

Cabrera missed time and frequently played through pain last season, dealing with a strained patellar tendon in his left knee.

Instead of having surgery this winter, he planned to rest for two weeks before beginning his regular offseason training regimen, Daily News reporter Kristie Ackert wrote in November.

"I did rest for two and half months and started working out in late December," said Cabrera, who is already in St. Lucie working out at the team's facility in Tradition Field. "My knee feels really good."

In order for the Mets to win 90 games in 2017, they obviously can't get hit with the injury bug like they did last season -- especially not in the starting rotation.

So, health aside, what has to happen for them to win 90?

Can Wright contribute? 00:06:03
Mets Hot Stove talks about how David Wright factors into the team's future plans.

The Mets need to be realistic about what to expect from David Wright in 2017, GM Sandy Alderson said Wednesday night.

"I think that we're very hopeful he's gonna be able to come back and be productive," Alderson said during an interview on WOR 710. "I think we have to be realistic about how many games we can expect him to perform."

Wright, who turns 34 in December and hasn't yet resumed baseball activity, had season-ending neck surgery in June after playing just 37 games.

The Mets haven't really commented on what their payroll will look like next seaosn. But, the way I see it, they can probably add roughly $50 million to their payroll next season, which - right now - is projected to open around $105 million when you factor in raises and players under contract.

I explained my reasoning here earlier this week, which is more or less the same conclusion reached Thursday by ESPN.com's Adam Rubin...

That $105 million does not include Yoenis Cespedes, Bartolo Colon or Neil Walker.

Thank you, Mets, for a wild season. In spring training, settling for a wild card loss would have been a major disappointment. However, at 60-62 on Aug. 19, with 70 percent of the Opening Day lineup on the disabled list, simply getting to the wild card seemed like an unrealistic goal. Nevertheless, the Mets attained it. It was an amazing run and I'm glad I got to experience watching it.

Terry Collins on Wild Card loss 00:07:13
New York Mets manager Terry Collins speaks to the media following the Mets' loss to the Giants in the NL Wild Card Game.

Jeurys Familia allowed a three-run home run to Conor Gillaspie with one out in the top of the ninth inning as the New York Mets' hopes to return to the World Series ended with a 3-0 loss to Madison Bumgarner and the San Francisco Giants in the wild card game on Wednesday at Citi Field.

In case you missed it…

  • Familia allowed a leadoff double to Brandon Crawford and a one-out walk to Joe Panik to bring up Gillaspie, who hit a three-run home run to right-center field to break a scoreless tie.
  • Bumgarner struck out six batters in a four-hit shutout. 
  • Addison Reed pitched out of a bases-loaded, two-out jam in the top of the eighth inning by striking out Hunter Pence.
  • Bumgarner got Asdrubal Cabrera to line out softly back to the mound with Ty Kelly on second base to end the bottom of the eighth inning.
  • Noah Syndergaard struck out 10 batters in seven scoreless innings and took a no-hitter into the sixth inning. He gave up two hits and three walks, throwing 70 of 108 pitches for strikes.
  • Denard Span broke up Syndergaard's no-hitter with a clean single with two outs in the sixth inning.
  • Curtis Granderson made a run-saving catch to end the sixth inning when he made a running, over-the-shoulder catch and crashed into the wall to rob Brandon Belt of an extra-base hit.

What's next…

The Giants face Jon Lester and the Chicago Cubs in Game 1 of the NLDS on Friday at 9:15 p.m. ET.

The Mets' season is over.

The Mets begin their last series this season against a team over .500 when they face the Nationals in Washington, D.C. tonight. After these three games, the remaining 16 games will be against the Twins, Braves, Phillies and Marlins.

"I look at the scores every day and I see teams with losing records beating teams that have winning records," Mets manager Terry Collins said Sunday. "It's part of the game, so you've got to go out and play."

Bobby Valentine used to say, 'It's not who you play, it's when you play them.' And, despite an easier schedule, the Mets still have to step on the field and win. I don't expect them to take anything for granted. I'd love a sweep, but the goal should simply be to win the series, don't lose any more players to injury and keep moving forward.

In response to one question, he called out his team's effort, their respect for the game and their passion to play and entertain fans. He threatened that if his team didn't begin to play better, he and GM Sandy Alderson would consider replacing them with guys on the Triple-A roster. He then stood up, took no more questions, marched out of the room and gave the same speech to his team.

On the season, the veteran shortstop is hitting .271 with 16 HRs and 42 RBIs.

Cabrera was forced to leave Sunday's game with left knee discomfort, the same injury that landed him on the disbaled list earlier this month.

Mets SS Asdrubal Cabrera left Sunday's game against the Phillies in the first inning with a sore left knee.

Cabrera was injured when he collided with Phillies first baseman Tommy Joseph after bunting for a base hit. Joseph was leaping to get a wild throw from pitcher Vince Velasquez when Cabrera collided with him.

He remained in the game, and advanced to second on Kelly Johnson's single. But Cabrera, who appeared to have trouble running, left the game and was replaced by Wilmer Flores.

Mets OF Jay Bruce left Wednesday's game with a cramp in his right calf, which he and his manager, Terry Collins, both later said was only a minor injury.

"It felt like a cramp that wouldn't let up," said Bruce, who expects to play on Thursday.

He hit a double in the second inning off Cardinals starter Carlos Martinez, but Collins pulled him from the game after seeing him look hurt.
