Jacob deGrom was knocked around last night in the Bronx for six runs in only five innings of work.?DeGroms' 18 1/3 scoreless-innings streak, and more importantly the teams 11-game winning streak, came to an end last night.

"It's disappointing, because we were on a nice roll," Terry Collins said after the game. "I know the Yankees have been playing very well, but we're surprised when Jake doesn't have his good stuff and tonight he didn't have it."

Terry Collins didn't mince words Monday after the Mets committed six errors, including three in a brutal eighth inning, as the Marlins rallied for a 9-6 victory.

"Well, I'm not sure I can say it publicly," Collins said, when asked what he was thinking when watching the game. "It was not a big-league baseball game. ... It was ugly."

The six errors were one short of the franchise record.

Terry Collins said Wednesday night ?he was going to "put my head through the wall," after learning that Matt Harvey threw off a mound earlier in the day (ESPN, Aug. 13).

Collins is frustrated that Harvey is resisting the team's guidance to scale back workouts as he recovers from Tommy John surgery.

The majority of Lucas Duda's time in the field this spring will be at first base, but he may also get some time in the outfield, Terry Collins said Friday in St. Lucie.

Collins and Sandy Alderson have repeatedly said Duda and Ike Davis will compete for the team's staring first base job.

In the end, "If Lucas and Ike hit the way we know they can, we'll figure out a way to get their bats in the lineup," Collins said.

Terry Collins says the Mets have three guys in camp that can play center field, he told reporters Friday in St. Lucie.

Curtis Granderson, Chris Young, Juan Lagares?and?Eric Young Jr.?will all compete for the starting outfield, which will mostly be determined by who hits best in spring training, Sandy Alderson said on WFAN earlier this week.

"As we sit here today, Eric Young is the guy you want to see at the top of the lineup," Collins said. "We know what happens when he gets on, we score runs."

The addition of Andrea Bargnani and Metta World Peace has New York Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony excited about the upcoming season, but not enough that he can commit to the team long-term.

Anthony, 29, can opt out of his contract following the 2013-14 season. He has been rumored to be a target of the Los Angeles Lakers, where the franchise will look to rebuild and reemerge after the loss of Dwight Howard.

When asked whether the Knicks? offseason transactions have affected his decision to stay with the Knicks beyond next season, Anthony said he could not comment.

Let?s rewind a few weeks to NBA Draft night.

I was anxiously awaiting the Brooklyn Nets? pick at No. 22 and hoped they would select a big man to provide depth on the bench, which they did in Mason Plumlee.

The team had a solid core that had just won 49 games, and now just needed a few more pieces to the puzzle to improve on what was ultimately a successful first year in the borough of Kings.

So the Brooklyn Nets acquired two Hall of Famers to team up with three superstars to form easily one of the best ? if not the best ? starting five in the NBA.

The blockbuster trade sending Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett to the Nets from the Boston Celtics is official, meaning the Nets starting lineup will feature a combined 35 All-Star appearances and be worth $82 million.

Last season, one of the Nets? strengths was the team?s depth. The team received significant contributions from the ?Bench Mob? including Andray Blatche, C.J. Watson, Keith Bogans and at times Jerry Stackhouse.
