“He’s going to be in those first five guys, I’ll tell you that,” Collins said Saturday.
Asked if that meant Harvey would pitch one of the first five games of the season, Collins replied: “Yes.”
Hmm … so, who’s in charge? Alderson or Collins? Or Harvey?
Breaking news: Phil Coke will NOT sign with the Mets.
Looking over the winter of transactions throughout MLB — and the lack of transactions involving a certain team based in Flushing, New York — one particular deal stands out to me as a possible missed opportunity for the Mets.

In case you didn’t already read … Dr. K will be the main attraction at a fundraising luncheon, hosted by the Baseball United Foundation, to benefit programs to grow youth baseball programs in regions of the world where baseball is not traditionally played.
The event — titled “Lunch with Doc” — will be held on February 21, 2015 at Graziella’s Italian Bistro in White Plains, NY. It will feature a talk and Q&A session with former Mets and Yankees star Dwight “Doc” Gooden.
If you want to help spread the word of baseball, buy tickets to the luncheon. If you want to meet Dwight Gooden, buy tickets to the luncheon. If you like a good plate of Italian food, buy tickets to the luncheon. If you want to tell me to my face what a jerk I am for constantly criticizing the Mets, buy tickets to the luncheon. If you have none of these desires, then you can spend Saturday working on your “honey-do” list. Have fun with that.
