This is nothing new. The injury carousel that is the New York Mets shortstop position has been an issue for the past few seasons now, and probably the last decade when you really look at it. Aside from the 4-year span from 2005-2008 where Reyes played everyday, injuries have plagued whoever has manned this position. While Reyes was our starting shortstop since 2003, he was hardly a model of consistency when it came to playing […]
Right now the starting pitching options are limited as the Mets look to fill the void left by Mike Pelfrey. Who would have thought we would miss Mike Pelfrey so much? Anyway, things don’t look great right now as Miguel Batista is on the DL, and Jeremy Hefner leaves you little to get excited about. But it appears things will drastically change in the coming weeks as some arms are on the way which will […]
Frank Francisco blew the save last night, one that would have pushed our winning streak to 6 games, and a season high 6 games over .500. The loss is not catastrophic by any means, but it just re-emphasizes that fact that we don’t have a shut down closer. As crazy as our former closer Frankie Rodriguez was, he was still a top level closer and despite his high wire act most nights, he usually got the job done. […]
This is a year of transition for the Mets. In a year of transition the goal is to see what you have for the future as you look to build a winning team. Some, but not all of the players who we are seeing in the lineup this season are part of the solution. The others may not be part of the problem, but that doesn’t mean that they are going to help us contend […]
I know it’s early, but the promising start to the 2012 campaign for Mets former top prospect Wilmer Flores is extremely encouraging. He was ranked at the top of the organization in recent years due to his hitting ability and future potential, but did not live up to the hype on the field. So far this season he is showing that maybe all that talk of him being a big time hitter was accurate and the recent […]
Who will lead this years team in RBI for the 2012 season? That’s a tough question to answer since none of the big boys played a full season in 2011 except for Jason Bay. Whether or not you still consider him a middle of the order bat or not, he has had a few 100+ RBI seasons under his belt and still has the potential to do some damage. For this team to compete David […]
The Mets starting rotation has been virtually the same group over the past few seasons. Most of these starters have seen their win totals fluctuate wildly over that time. Some have had drastic drops or increases in performance and that makes it difficult to predict what you can realistically expect from them each season. Below are some Over/Under’s on the win totals for the Mets 2012 starting rotation. Mike Pelfrey: 11.5 Jon Niese: 10.5 Johan Santana:12.5 Dillon […]
The Mets roster has more unknowns going into this season than any other I can recall in recent memory. We have so many guys coming back from injury, down years, and half-seasons that it is hard to get a good gauge on what these players will really do in the batter’s box this season. So let’s have a little fun with it and see what us Mets fans think will happen. Below is a list […]
With opening day right around the corner Andres Torres is still not totally cleared to play. Torres has not played in a game since last week due to a strained calf muscle. He took indoor batting practice yesterday but that is a long way from playing in real game action. He still needs to be able to run the bases and shag balls in the outfield before we can see in the lineup again. With […]
