The New York Mets need pitching, pitching and more pitching. That’s why it’s quite strange that the team selected high school outfielder Brandon Nimmo with the No. 13 overall pick in this year’s MLB Draft. I can echo Robert Knapel’s sentiments on the subject that this pick is odd. First off, Nimmo, who is the highest drafted player ever from Wyoming, never even played high school baseball since the state does not have a high […]
For the New York Mets, depth was a major issue heading into the season. Like in 2009, the injury bug has plagued the team, only earlier this year than anyone expected. However, the Mets have received timely contributions from several players who originally didn’t factor too much into the team’s plans for this season. Here are five Mets who have been great finds after starting the year in the minors. 5. Jason Pridie Jason Pridie […]
Today is June 1st, so that marks the one-third point of the season. The Mets are eight games behind the Phillies for first place in the NL East and 6.5 games behind the Florida Marlins for the Wild Card. While some claim it’s still too early to be scoreboard watching, I believe every game counts, especially when you’re the team trying to make up the most ground. The thing about this year in both leagues […]
Since coming off the disabled list, Angel Pagan has been a hitting machine. With his hot return, it begs the question of whether Terry Collins should re-insert Pagan into the No. 2 spot in the lineup. As Pagan regains his stroke, Justin Turner continues handling the bat well, which is ideal for a No. 2 hole hitter. Daniel Murphy has also been hitting well as of late and may see time in the second spot […]
Jason Bay has been a Met for a year and two months. During this time, he has been a major disappointment since signing a four-year, $66 million deal with a fifth-year vesting option. Granted, Bay missed a significant chunk of time last season due to a concussion, but even before that, he struggled offensively. This was a guy who had six straight 20+ HR seasons, including a 36 HR campaign for the Boston Red Sox […]
Though setbacks have delayed their return to action, Angel Pagan, David Wright and Ike Davis will eventually be healthy enough to play. In fact, Pagan is expected back in the lineup this Friday. While last night’s game was a poor indicator, the Mets have actually played some good baseball without three of their regulars players. Some young guys have stepped up when needed, especially Justin Turner and Jason Pridie. Pridie has shown enough to keep […]
Dillon Gee gave the Mets a glimmer of hope in throwing the team’s first-ever no-hitter. However, like so many hopefuls before him, Gee fell short of making history. Though there have been some heartbreaking possible no-hit efforts in Mets history, the last two have been particularly hard to swallow, since the opposing team’s pitcher broke up the bid. How fitting that former Met Livan Hernandez was the culprit this time? While he’s been a good […]
I am happier than anyone with how the Mets have been playing lately. The team is getting offensive production from unlikely sources, the bullpen has been miraculous and Mike Pelfrey seems to be getting back on track. However, all of a sudden, shades of the 2009 injury plague have crept back to the team. David Wright and Ike Davis are out, forcing the team to reach into its minor league system to pull up able […]
Yesterday, former Met right fielder Jeff Francouer released statements saying that the Mets should consider lowering the left field fence and bringing in the deep gaps of Citi Field. Of course, earlier in the offseason, Francouer, who is currently mashing with the Kansas City Royals, called Citi Field a “damn joke.” Internally, the Mets have discussed the idea of making the dimensions more hitter friendly in the ballpark. However, are the dimensions at Citi Field […]
