Mets Morning News: Wright Meets With Collins, Reyes To Binghamton,Alderson Doesn't Like Idea Of Pelfrey To Pen

Following last night's debacle, David Wright met with manager Terry Collins for a closed-door meeting.
"We’re in a rut, and we’re playing pretty bad baseball right now, so we’ve got to find a way to figure some things out and try to play better," Wright said. "It’s not just about the winning and the losing. ... We just can’t allow ourselves to just play out the season. It’s obviously a bad situation to begin with. And the last thing you want to do is just go out there and play the games for the sake of playing the games.

"Hopefully people realize that there’s a lot on the line going into next year, and we clean some things up and get some things going. It’s us as a team. Everybody’s guilty of it to some degree. We just need to clean it up a little bit and go out there and try to play better baseball."
Jose Reyes is expected to begin his rehab assignment Thursday in Double-A Binghamton. The Mets plan to have Reyes play three to four games before being activated from the disabled list.

According to the Daily News, general manager Sandy Alderson rejected the idea of moving Mike Pelfrey to the bullpen.
"It was just a thought I had," [Terry] Collins said. "I'm trying to come up with options of, as we look down the road, what can make us good. Here is a guy that I know can throw 95-97 . . . "(but) it's one thing to say, and it's another thing to replace 200 inning - which he is going to give you."

  1. It doesn't matter if Pelfrey starts or pitches out of the pen. What matters is he's GONE from the Mets at season's end. Half the current pitching roster needs to be flushed from Flushing. Buh bye.

    Pitchers and catchers report in mid-February :) That's all there is to look forward to with this team.
