Bartolo Colon counters heckler: I have more than just 2 families

Bartolo Colon, who turned 43 on Tuesday, had an interesting exchange with a fan the previous night, according to a witness. The fan was heckling Colon, who pitched seven innings of one-run ball in Monday’s 7-1 win, about having two families. The Post reported last week he has children with two different women and is...

The obvious place to start Mets’ first base search

The simplest move the Mets can make to replace Lucas Duda would be to turn to James Loney. He is at Triple-A with the Padres, hitting .333. He is allowed to leave if he has a major league job elsewhere. As of Tuesday morning, the Mets had not reached out for him, but his representatives...

Bartolo Colon told Nationals: ‘Throw it down the middle, [I’m] not swinging’

WASHINGTON — Bartolo Colon’s last whirl as a 42-year-old was exactly what the Mets have come to expect. The veteran righty, who turns 43 on Tuesday, was coming off consecutive rough outings — a rarity — but limited the Nationals to one run over seven innings in the Mets’ 7-1 victory on Monday. Colon later...

David Wright’s small victories all you can hope for now

WASHINGTON — What was it that Roy Campanella said? “You have to have a lot of little boy in you to play baseball for a living.” Well, let’s be perfectly frank here: There haven’t been a lot of days lately when David Wright has felt like a little boy. When you’ve got a cranky back,...

Terry Collins’ low bar for Matt Harvey: Throw some innings

WASHINGTON — Matt Harvey was pulled from the bottom of the Hudson River last week, but the Mets have no intention of fishing for him in the Potomac on Tuesday. The former Mets ace will try to revive his season, with a rematch against a Nationals team that hammered him Thursday at Citi Field. In...

Why Mets’ Nationals destruction is biggest favor to Matt Harvey

WASHINGTON — The Mets’ 7-1 pounding of the Nationals Monday night, here at Nationals Park, carries an additional benefit beyond drawing the defending National League champs within a half-game of their rivals atop the NL East. It lowers the bar even more for Matt Harvey, who can use all the bar-lowering he can get at...

Mets’ boom-or-bust offense goes boom in Nats beatdown

WASHINGTON — The Mets’ all-or-nothing lineup was clearly in “all” mode Monday night. One more home run by the visiting team might have sent the White House into lockdown. This was pure bliss by the Mets, who had waited nearly three weeks for this kind of breakout. David Wright, Yoenis Cespedes and Neil Walker all...

Lucas Duda has a back fracture, and Mets have to get creative

WASHINGTON — Lucas Duda won’t be emerging from his slump and starting a homer binge anytime soon. In a whammy the Mets almost expected given the first baseman’s movements in recent days, Duda was placed on the disabled list Monday with a stress fracture in his back and will likely miss at least the next...

The Game 6 the world forgot, but Mets fans never will

Time was, this would happen all the time. All these years after the Dodgers abandoned Brooklyn for Los Angeles, in the final summer of Vin Scully, we are reminded of a time when you could follow every pitch of a Dodgers game, Scully and Red Barber and Connie Desmond, as you walked through the streets...

Jesse Orosco talks World Series and having little kids imitate him

The Mets likely wouldn’t have won their most recent World Series title, in 1986, without clutch reliever Jesse Orosco.

Hidden throwing session gets Matt Harvey Tuesday start

Matt Harvey will get a chance to make amends on Tuesday.

How DL-ed A-Rod has opened door for Beltran, Refsnyder

OAKLAND, Calif. — In the days leading to this past Thursday, the plan was for Alex Rodriguez to jump off the disabled list and resume being the Yankees’ designated hitter.
