Will Mets Have Revived Interest In Nick Franklin?

The trade buzz on Nick Franklin is picking up again as both the Yankees and Tigers continue to get meager production from their shortstop position.

First Base Follies To Continue

Despite Ike Davis starting on Thursday night against the Braves and starter David Hale, Terry Collins insists that Lucas Duda is still the starting first baseman and will continue to get the bulk of the playing time. “We made a decision and you don’t have much credibility if you keep changing your mind every other day because somebody goes 2-for-4,” […]

Ruben Tejada Leads The Mets With A .400 OBP

Don’t look now, but among Mets players with 20 or more at-bats on the young season, shortstop Ruben Tejada is second on the team in batting with a .286 average and he pairs that with an impressive team-leading .400 on-base percentage. The young Panamanian native has taken a lot of flack over the last six […]
