Has Kevin Long Unlocked James Loney’s Power

In many ways it is fitting that James Loney was assigned the number 28 by the Mets.  Loney is a left-handed contact hitter that has been pressed into action at first base after the Mets lost Lucas Duda to a back injury.  Throughout their careers, Loney and Daniel Murphy have been very similar hitters. Coming into this season, Loney […]
