The stunning revival of Curtis Granderson

The stunning revival of Curtis Granderson

Curtis Granderson was ready to retire in 2017. His four-year contract and time with the Mets was ending and the Amazin’s dealt the three-time All-Star to the Dodgers in August.

Noah Syndergaard: Coach’s comments ‘a little misconstrued’

Noah Syndergaard has found difficulty meeting expectations this season, but the star Mets pitcher says he had no issue in his latest meeting with pitching coach Dave Eiland. Eiland spoke with Syndergaard prior to the right-hander’s start Tuesday — following Eiland’s comments to The Post that the 25-year-old “is yet to do a whole lot...

Mets put Yoenis Cespedes on DL with no clear return date

Yoenis Cespedes no longer has the option to play through pain. Following Tuesday’s MRI exam, which revealed the outfielder had a mild strain of his right hip flexor, the Mets placed Cespedes on the 10-day disabled list — retroactive to Monday — before Wednesday’s 12-1 loss to the Blue Jays at Citi Field.

Mets still waiting for the ‘old Noah’

Mets still waiting for the ‘old Noah’

Noah Syndergaard searched for a win for more than five weeks. The search for the “old Noah” still continues.

Syndergaard (3-1) lasted five innings, and...

Maybe the Mets have a prayer of getting something back for Matt Harvey. While it has been largely assumed the former star pitcher would be an unlikely trade candidate due to the $4.6 million remaining on his contract and would end up being released after being designated for assignment Saturday, MLB Network reported Monday the Rangers...

Jay Bruce finally broke out the big glove. The Mets’ right fielder made his first start of the season at first base Friday night — allowing outfielder Brandon Nimmo to get in the lineup and make his first start since April 29 — and performed admirably, with no errors and a diving stab on a...

Zack Wheeler does best Harvey impersonation as Mets fall again

Zack Wheeler does best Harvey impersonation as Mets fall again

Zack Wheeler and Michael Conforto didn’t finish Friday night looking much better than Matt Harvey. While Wheeler buried the Mets before their first at-bat and allowed five runs in the first inning, Conforto sunk deeper into a season-long slump and went 0-for-5, with four strikeouts — the final one coming in the game’s final at-bat,...

Mets are done with Matt Harvey

Mets are done with Matt Harvey

It is the Dark Knight’s darkest hour. Mets general manager Sandy Alderson made the stunning announcement Friday afternoon that Matt Harvey was being designated for assignment after refusing a minor league assignment, ending the brief, once-brilliant and often-chaotic run for the pitcher whose peak popularity and dominance have few rivals in team history.
