3 Up & 3 Down: Frustrated By The Phillies Edition

In last weekend’s edition of 3&3, I cautioned to watch out for a Dodger’s team that was struggling. That warning should have been extended to this weekend’s series with the Phillies as well. Against two teams that have been struggling, our Mets finished 1-5. Looks like our team is fast becoming a cure to another […]

At this point, I think everyone knows that I am a Matt den Dekker fan. I’ve argued in his favor since early spring training, when he leaped through the St. Lucie night and pulled a would-be home run from beyond the left-centerfield wall. Many Mets fans never knew who den Dekker was until that moment. That […]

Why Kirk Nieuwenhuis Should Absolutely Positively NOT Bat Leadoff

Kirk Nieuwenhuis came up last season after CF Andres Torres went down. Billed as an athletic and toolsy outfielder with some promise, Nieuwenhuis hit the ground running raking to the tune of a .325 batting average in March and April.

Morning Grind: Who’s Our Outfield?!

In what has been quite the roller coaster year for the 2012 New York Mets; one thing has been consistent, and not in a good way. With some exception to a select few, this outfield has been just awful. The Amazin’s lost two starting outfielders from 2011 in Beltran and Pagan, and merely replaced them […]
