Can Mets Afford To Let Walker Walk?

Just when it looked as if things couldn’t get bleaker for the Mets, Neil Walker rescued them Sunday afternoon with a two-run, ninth-inning homer.

In 2014 Lucas Duda broke out as a premier power hitting left-handed bat.  The move coincided with the Mets trading the man many wanted instead, Ike Davis.  After said trade, which was mostly made in part to Lucas’ impressive exit velocity numbers which trumped those of former 32 homerun and 90 RBI producing Ike Davis, […]

Why Golfing On A Strained Quad is Detrimental to the Injury

I would never think that this would be the topic at hand on August 4th in Mets-Ville, but I guess with the 2016 Mets if there is one thing we have learned is that you can not assume anything about this baseball team or about the way any injury is handled.  Yoenis Cespedes quad injury […]

Mets Should Bring Back Juan Uribe

One thing that is lost when evaluating a player is their impact on the clubhouse. The one thing we all saw with Juan Uribe with the Mets last year was he was a great clubhouse presence. He was the guy who walked into the clubhouse, and he suddenly owned the place. He was blaring the Backstreet Boys […]

The Mets Center Field Dilemma

The Mets acquisition of Jay Bruce was designed to solve the Mets’ offensive woes, and more importantly, their difficulty with hitting with runners in scoring position.

Mets’ Hitting Woes Extend Beyond Coaching, But Long Has To Go

The New York Mets look woefully bad at the plate with runners in scoring position. Is it Kevin Long’s fault? Absolutely not.  However, he needs to be fired anyway. It’s fair to say that it is unfair to criticize or blame the coach, but in this case, a change must be made for the sake […]

How Mets’ Outfielders Have Fared Playing Center

The acquisition of Jay Bruce leaves the Mets with four corner outfielders on their roster and no true center fielder. Yoenis Cespedes, who had been playing center, has removed himself from that position due to his seemingly never-ending quad injury. With this being the case, the plan seems to be to have Michael Conforto and […]
