Well, maybe this explains why my wife thought it was necessary to draft Daniel Murphy in our fantasy league. Her “heart pick” came in one of the last rounds, and in my opinion, was a waste, but maybe she knows something the rest of us do not, aside from Sandy Alderson and Terry Collins of course.
Collin McHugh will start Sept. 3 in St. Louis, Terry Collins said.

This makes me happy, because come September, the Mets provide very little to look forward too. After his first start, of the dominating sort, this news is very well deserved. Now, I have 2 reasons to watch the Mets this September; McHugh & Harvey. If Mejia officially gets any starts, then that would be a 3rd reason, like a streak of reasons, which would make me even happier.
Also, Collin McHugh has a very good blog and I highly suggest taking a look. His blog, entitled A Day Older, A Day Wiser, can be found by clicking the link in the right column under “The Best of The Mets” section on this site.
Terry Collins, New York Mets manager, won’t be fired before end of season or in offseason, says source via NY Post
“Terry Collins won’t have to spend the final month of the Mets season looking over his shoulder.
According to a club source, there is “no chance” the Mets manager will become a scapegoat for the team’s second-half collapse and be fired this offseason or before the season concludes.
The 63-year-old Collins is signed through 2013, but will enter next year as a lame duck if general manager Sandy Alderson chooses not to extend the manager’s contract.
It was last September that Alderson picked up Collins’ option for 2013, in part to ensure the manager wouldn’t enter this season in the final year of his deal.”…
With the news coming yesterday that Johana Santana is being shut down to let his entire body heal and recover from all the work that he has put in to rehab from major shoulder surgery, Terry Collins has provided even more details to reporters.
The current plan for Santana is to rest his throwing arm until January, when players would typically start preparing for Spring Training.
While some people are taking a pessimistic approach to the whole Santana being shut down news, I am not one of them. I was encouraged by what we saw from Santana. Aside from the no-hitter, which was unbelievable, he still featured an 88-91 mph fastball and a good change. He did struggle at times with location, his slider, and his body breaking down, but he has also been working to come back for 2 years now.
I think, as long as the body holds up, Santana will be a big part of the 2013 Mets, although as opposed to recent years, won’t be depended upon in the same manner.
According to an update on WFAN from Sandy Alderson, Johan Santana has inflammation in his lower back and needs rest. He will be placed on the disabled list, which most likely shuts him down for the rest of the season as we have all expected.
Taking Santana’s spot in the rotation will be Collin McHugh, as expected, since he joined the team’s Taxi Squad yesterday.
I am glad Santana will receive the rest needed to come back strong for 2013 and I am also interested in seeing what Collin McHugh can do with the Mets as he has been talked about this season based on his success in the minor leagues.
