In Case You Missed It
After a Marc Craig report mentioned anonymous Mets ripping manager Terry Collins, 3B David Wright fired back on Friday evening in a phone interview with The Record.
Collins responded to portions of Craig's report by saying the front office never took issue with the usage of the team's bullpen and he bristled at the notion that misusing Jeurys Familia led to surgery.
Jacob deGrom will not pitch again this season because of gastroenteritis. He completes the year with a 15-10 record and a 3.53 ERA.
Staying with the pitchers, Noah Syndergaard will start Sunday and is expected to throw 25 pitches. Syndergaard pitched one inning in a loss to the Nationals on the 23rd of September, giving up one hit and zero runs.
Matthew Cerrone broke down the Craig report in-depth. What does this mean in regards to Collins? The front office?
