Happy Birthday to New York Mets third basemen David Wright! As Wright turns 27 today, we still have so much to look forward to from our homegrown all-star third baseman. Last year David Wright had the worst season power-wise of his career. Wright hit just 10 homeruns, but with 39 doubles and 72 RBI. Also on the downside, he saw his strikeout rate jump 8% over his 2008 level. There were, however, still some positives from Wright. He [...]
The Mets have finally gotten an early Christmas gift, as the hunt for Jason Bay was dropped by one team Friday when the Mariners traded for Milton Bradley. The only thing left for the Mets now is to come to a final agreement with Bay and bring him to Citi Field for the 2010 season. Long before Bradley was dealt to Seattle, the Mets were without a doubt Bay’s primary suitors. The team is reluctant [...]

As the Mets try their best to acquire a number two starter to pair with ace Johan Santana for the 2010 season, let’s examine the facts surrounding Mike Pelfrey, who was anointed the number two starter last season. The 2009 season was one to forget for the young righthander who the Mets selected ninth overall in the 2005 MLB Draft. Pelfrey regressed across the board among many statistical measures, but even worse was his mental makeup as the stress of his declining [...]
