Why Did Mets Go With Montero Instead Of Syndergaard?

Kevin Kernan of the NY Post believes the Mets chose the wrong pitching prospect to promote when they opted to name Rafael Montero the replacement for the injured Jacob deGrom instead of using the opportunity to usher in the MLB debut of Noah Syndergaard. This would have been the perfect game to have Syndergaard make his major […]

Remembering the “Disappointed But Not Devastated” Tom Glavine

The Baseball Hall of Fame will induct its 2014 class today in Cooperstown, NY and standing among them will be two former Mets.

Ben Zobrist: The Best Alternative To Castro And Baez?

The Mets have two clear-cut positions to fill by Opening Day 2015: shortstop and left field. The Mets have gotten very little in the way of offensive production from those positions. That is both good and bad. While it hurts them this season, it gives the Mets two well-defined areas they need to improve upon. […]

D’Arnaud Changed His Mindset, Not His Approach

When Travis d’Arnaud was demoted to the minors, the coaching staff down there had a two-hour talk with him, and he emerged a new man. Well, a new hitter, at least. Since returning to the Mets on June 24th, d’Arnaud is hitting .295 (18 for 61) with five doubles, three home runs and 10 RBI. D’Arnaud said he needed to clear […]
