Mets Monthy Review: More Than A June Swoon

June is over, thankfully, and the Mets are rapidly approaching the half way mark of the season which they will eclipse after Sunday’s series finale with the Chicago Cubs.  It was quite the underwhelming month with very few positive story lines to highlight.

Ready Or Not, Here Come The Cubs

After getting their brains bashed in by Daniel Murphy and the Washington Nationals, the New York Mets get no time off to mope around and lick their wounds.

Over the course of a full 162 game schedule, it is extremely rare that a team is able to get through a season with just five starting pitchers. In most cases anywhere between 8-12 pitchers will make starts in an average season. We are reminded of that with the news that Steven Matz and Noah […]

A Case For Eduardo Nunez

With the Mets sitting precariously in third place, it is almost universally accepted that Sandy Alderson will have to swing a trade or make a signing to cement the Mets as legitimate contenders from an offensive perspective.  Sure the sixth-year General Manager brought in Jose Reyes and worked out Yulieski Gourriel, but let’s face it, […]

I’ll Be Rooting Hard For Michael Conforto

As you know by now, the New York Mets demoted struggling outfielder Michael Conforto to Triple-A Las Vegas on Saturday, and promoted outfielder Brandon Nimmo to the big league team. After rocketing through the system last year and breaking out with 12 doubles, nine home runs and a 132 OPS+ in 56 games, things deteriorated […]

The Good, The Bad And De Aza

What a great night for the New York Mets who outlasted the Atlanta Braves in a thrilling 1-0 extra-innings win. The game itself was a classic pitching duel between two great young starters in Jacob deGrom and Julio Teheran. And it was former Brave Kelly Johnson who would provide the big hit – a clutch […]

Matt Reynolds Is Decent, Should Play More

The Mets bench has not been a pretty place for most of the past two seasons. It’s been riddled with sub-.200 hitters that belonged in AAA. So when Matt Reynolds started his big league career 3-for-19, it was only natural that he began to be lumped in with the likes of Danny Muno, Eric Campbell […]
