NEW YORK -- Terry Collins sat in the Citi Field interview room and answered the first question after the New York Mets latest embarrassing defeat, a 9-0 wipeout against Arizona on Thursday that dropped them back to .500 for the first time since April.The manager spoke for 3 minutes, 27 seconds, his voice rising with emotion, his hands gesturing, tapping his chest and the table in front of him during a brutal assessment of his players desire and professionalism.Starting tomorrow were going to get after it here and those who dont want to get after it, I will find somebody else who does, he said, because in Las Vegas theres a whole clubhouse filled with guys who want to sit in this room and Ill find them. Thats all I got to say.Following that threat to call up players from the minor leagues, Collins arose, walked back down the corridor to his clubhouse and held a team meeting that lasted about 20 minutes.The last-place Diamondbacks rolled to a three-game sweep, rattling Noah Syndergaard with four more stolen bases and breaking open the game in a six-run sixth inning against Jon Niese that included Chris Owings bases-loaded triple.Fourteen of New Yorks last 15 batters made out, and the Mets -- missing injured Yoenis Cespedes, Lucas Duda, David Wright and Jose Reyes -- managed five runs and 17 hits in the series. They have the lowest batting average in the major leagues at .236 and were shut out for the ninth time.I dont care whos not here. There are no excuses here, Collins said with intensity. These are major league baseball players. I dont care where they came from. I dont care how they got here. The names on their back and on the front of their uniform say theyre a major league baseball player. It starts with them.New York, which began the day 2 1/2 games back for the NLs second wild card, dropped to 10-16 since the All-Star break. As 57-57, the Mets are down to .500 for the first time since a 7-7 mark.You owe a responsibility to the fans, our fan base, the organization and to yourself to respect for this game to come out and grind it out, whether its hot or whether its freezing cold, and thats where its got to start, Collins said.Yes, some guys are having a bad time. You cannot say woe is me at this level. You cannot do it. Everybodys too good here. Nobody feels sorry for you, `cause everybodys been humbled and those who get out of it stay here a long time. Those who dont you keep looking up and they keep getting a little time here and a little time there but they dont stay. I want the ones who can stay, he said.Players understand the Mets, having raised fan expectations after reaching the World Series last year, expect the team to reach the postseason once again.Obviously he feels that pressure on himself from the outside in terms of us going out there to perform and being able to be victorious in any situation possible, outfielder Curtis Granderson said, so of course hes going to have some situations where hes not going to be as happy as you would expect him to be and after a loss.Collins singled out second baseman Neil Walker for his hustle and attitude.Its about keeping positive, keeping the blinders on moving forward on a daily basis with energy and playing hard, Walker said of Collins message.Syndergaard (9-7) swiped an arm in the air after right fielder Jay Bruce failed to catch Gosewischs opposite-field triple down the line, which gave the Diamondbacks a 2--0 lead, then threw up his arms in frustration when Arizona pitcher Braden Shipley (2-1) singled up the middle through a drawn-in infield for his first big league RBI.Syndergaard allowed three runs and eight hits -- including three doubles and a triple -- and is 0-4 in his last six starts. He described the mood of the team as optimistic, kind of down right now, plagued by injury.Arizona stole 13 bases in the series, the most in a three-game series against the Mets. Runners have swiped 36 bases in 40 tries against Syndergaard this year and are 51 for 56 against him in his career, according to the Elias Sports Bureau. The Mets have allowed a big league-high 102 steals, including 20 off rookie Steven Matz, who is second behind Syndergaard.Its real easy for the baserunners to predict when Im going to home and when Im going to able to pick off. Its really mechanical, Syndergaard said.Fans booed the sloppy Mets, who allowed Arizona to steal bases without throws and also had an error, wild pitch and run-scoring passed ball.Theres got to be a passion to come and play, Collins said. Theres got to be a sense of this is what I do for a living, the people who pay me to play are going to see my best effort.TRAINERS ROOMMets: 3B Jose Reyes (oblique) was to start a rehab assignment with Class A Brooklyn on Thursday.UP NEXTMets: Logan Verrett (3-7), 0-1 in five starts since the All-Star break, is to start Fridays series opener against San Diego and Paul Clemens (1-2).

Hurricanes Jerseys Outlet .J. -- New York Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz will miss the rest of the season after having surgery on his left knee. Hurricanes Jerseys From China . Collaros, 25, was solid last season, posting a 5-2 record as the starter while incumbent Ricky Ray was injured. Collaros also started Torontos 23-20 regular-season finale loss to Montreal — Ray didnt dress because the Argos had already clinched first in the East Division — but was one of three quarterbacks to play that day. At last years National Womens Hockey League All-Star Game in Buffalo, commissioner Dani Rylan confidently predicted the fledgling league -- the first to pay players regular salaries -- had enough investor capital and sponsorship commitments to fully fund a second season in 2016-17.She was wrong.Citing cash flow problems and a drop-off in attendance, Rylan confirmed Friday that the league has asked players on its four teams to take significant salary cuts for the rest of the season. A person familiar with the leagues finances but not authorized to discuss them said the cuts are 50 percent, and follows two pay periods where direct deposits to some players arrived several days late.The leagues coaches, general managers and paid staff are not affected, Rylan said. Most of the leagues front-office employees are volunteers.Teams have a $270,000 salary cap with player salaries ranging from $10,000 to $25,000.We fell short on some projections, and we had to pivot and make a business decision, Rylan said on a conference call Friday. Unfortunately, we had to make this decision to save the season.Its a decision we did not take lightly. It came after trying everything we could from a business perspective to avoid it. Were doing everything we can to build the league, and sometimes that means taking a step back -- a step I have not wanted to take.The cuts, Rylan said, ensures the league will complete its 21-game regular season and the playoffs. (Teams have played between four and six games so far.) But the league did not consult with the NWHL Players Association.And the timing, more than a month into the season, angered many players.New York Riveters captain Ashley Johnston said the players had no inkling this was coming before Thursday night, when Rylan informed them by phone and email.To hear its something that needs to happen is a tough thing to hear, Johnston said on the same conference call as Rylan. Its kind of like going through different stages of mourning. Youre sad. Youre frustrated. All the things that you would expect.Said Rylan: The players reacted pretty emotionally. It was difficult news to receive. But many of them reached out to me directly, asking how they could help.Rylan offered one piece of encouraging news: Dunkin Donuts, the leagues first corporate sponsor, pledged an additional $50,000 to go directly to salaries.We believe in the league and we believe in the opportunity to give these women a chance to succeed, said Tom Manchester, the firms vice president of field marketing, in a telephone interview. As a sponsor, its not about dasher boards and signnage and traditional marketing elements.dddddddddddd We genuinely want these women to succeed in a sport where the men get paid a lot more money to play. We want these women to get an equal chance.The NWHL launched last season with great fanfare and expectations as the American answer to the Canadian Womens Hockey League, which paid bonuses but not salaries. U.S. national teams stars Hilary Knight, Meghan Duggan, Brianna Decker and others eagerly signed up even though NWHL founder Rylan remained secretive about the leagues financial underpinnings. Only three investors were ever publicly identified, the first being Joel Leonoff, a Canadian entrepreneur whose daughter Jaimie tended goal for the Connecticut Whale.Players said the league met every payroll. But there were rumblings about late payments to vendors and venues. Former chief marketing officer Mike Moran sued the league and Rylan for breach of contract to recover a $200,000 investment. Last February the league cut ties with George Spiers, another executive and investor. Three franchises switched arenas after last season, leaving only the Buffalo Beauts in their original home.This season is considered pivotal for anyone aspiring to play in the 2018 Winter Olympics. Twelve U.S. national team players are skating in the league, including Knight, Duggan, Decker, Kelli Stack and the former University of Minnesota star Amanda Kessel. The league also features 10 Canadians, one Austrian and one South Korean.NWHL contracts allow players to opt out for virtually any reason, though its not clear whether any will. At this point, most have no other place to play.CHWL commissioner Brenda Andress did not immediately respond to an email asking if NWHL players would be welcome in her league.This is the place where we all want to play, said Johnston, who is not on the national team. Were all invested in this league. We all want to see it succeed.It would be easy right now for everyone to pack up their bags and go home, but Im never one to really think that the easy thing is the right thing to do. Its going to be figuring out the next step, where we go as a team and a league as a family from here.Though Rylan believes the league will ultimately succeed, the pressing need for more sponsors and investors puts that in doubt.After yesterdays news, it would be pretty foolish of me to guarantee anything, she said. But we have every hope and expectation the league will be around for many years to come.
