Kirk Nieuwenhuis Should Not Lose Playing Time For Anyone

There has been a lot of talk lately about the logjam in the outfield that will occur when Bay returns from his fractured rib. Ideas ranging from sending Ike down to creating a four man rotation in the outfield have been tossed around. Some ideas include Kirk platooning with either Torres or Bay, which should […]

Mets News: Valdespin, Not Acosta, Sent Down

Update 5/19 @ 11:03am:  The Mets have optioned 2B/SS Jordany Valdespin to make room for Jeremy Hefner. Since the Mets will probably find the idea of a four-man bench not all that favorable, another move will likely be made in the coming days, probably Acosta will go down. Hefner will wear #53 and Valdespin will […]

When Bay Comes Back, Will Ike Go Down?

Jason Bay was cleared to resume baseball activities a few days ago and will likely return in 2-3 weeks, creating something of a logjam in the outfield upon his return. With both Nieuwenhuis and Duda producing and Torres being a defensive juggernaut while holding his own in the batter’s box, the Mets will have four […]

On The Wright Track: Mets Come Back From Four Run Deficit To Win 9-4

Recap: R.A. Dickey took the hill looking for his sixth win of the year, going toe-to-toe with Reds ace Matt Latos. Dickey started off dominant, striking out six in the first four frames, but ran into trouble in the fifth after giving up a solo shot to Joey Votto in the previous inning. Come top […]

I Wish Alderson Inked Chris Capuano Instead Of Frank Francisco

Chris Capuano took his first loss of the year last night after getting off to a 5-0 start. After going 6 1/3 innings allowing four runs (three earned) Capuano raised his ERA to a gaudy 2.34 ERA. Who would pay 2 years and $10 million for that? Wouldn’t you much rather have a guy like […]

Fred Wilpon: Wright Is “Playing Like A Superstar Right Now”

One of the last times we heard from Fred Wilpon, he was bashing the likes of Jose Reyes, Carlos Beltran and David Wright, calling him a “good kid” but not a “superstar”. Wilpon ate his words just one year later, speaking highly of the Mets third baseman today to reporters at City Hall shortly after […]

The Mets Have A Spark Plug Again

For years, Jose Reyes would be considered the “spark plug” of the Mets; the man to light up the basepaths, and the dugout. Now with Reyes trying to find his spark in Miami, the Mets were supposed to be lacking such a catalyst both on and off the field come 2012. Turns out, the true […]

Morning Grind: Why The Negativity Towards Wright?

I have noticed a theme both here and across the entire Mets fanbase of an increasing percentage of people who look at David Wright in a bad light. They put him down no matter how well he is performing and are the first to jump on him when he makes an error or strikes out […]

Déjà Vu All Over Again: Mets Fall 8-4 After Bullpen Foils Another Late Rally

Recap: Despite a valiant effort by Jon Niese and the New York Mets, who have scratched and clawed for every win this year, the bullpen for the second time this series could not hold it together, dropping the rubber game on a walk-off grand slam by Mike Giancarlo Stanton, 8-4. Niese took the hill despite not […]
