I just finished reading Mark Simon’s latest post on ESPN New York entitled, Top 5: Best Mets Teams. It’s a fascinating series he’s been working on this month, and I’ve enjoyed each of his segments, particularly this one. You should check it out. We all know how powerful that 1986 Mets team was, as they literally pulverized any team that got in there way on their way to a 108 win season. There’s no argument that […]
Updated By Craig Lerner on 1/23 The plot keeps thickening as Adam Rubin reports the following: A reliable major league source with knowledge of the Mets’ plans would not dismiss the possibility outfielder Michael Bourn could end up with the team. The Mets have a glaring need in their outfield. Currently, Lucas Duda is slated to play left field, with Kirk Nieuwenhuis and Collin Cowgill platooning in center field. Until another addition is made, Mike Baxter and Andrew Brown would appear the two logical candidates to pencil […]
Jonathan Mayo ranked the top ten right-handed pitching prospects and the Mets, not surprisingly, had Zack Wheeler check in at No. 4 and Noah Syndergaard at No. 10. Of the pitchers on the 2012 list of the Top 10 right-handed pitchers, six pitched in the big leagues. One finished fifth in American League Rookie of the Year Award voting.

FanGraphs’ Dan Szymborski has released his 2013 ZiPS projections for the New York Mets. You can check out all the projections which are very extensive right here. I happen to enjoy the comments because they provide some context to how they determined their projections. Batters Because the author is consumed with sloth, he will not look at the 14 clubs previously considered in this series to verify it, but will instead state the following — namely, […]
Two days ago we had a post that was contrasting the difference between what the Washington Nationals are doing and what the Mets are doing. As luck would have it, here is a quote from GM Sandy Alderson, who was a guest of Mike Francesa on WFAN today. that happened to address the same issue. “The Nationals are in a slightly different position from ours.

He will be the part-time co-host of a weekday talk show that debuts in April. Starting this month, he will also periodically provide analysis to NBC Sports Radio shows and affiliated stations.
