The Mets signed Curtis Granderson Friday to a four year, $60 million deal. One thing is for sure, he can hit. But there’s only one problem with that. Granderson has played his whole career thus far in the American League, revealing uncertainty when it comes to facing the National League. Let’s take a look at how he has fared against the NL East and where his 43 2012 home runs would have landed in opponents’ […]
Last week we looked at high school catcher Alex Jackson. This week we’ll switch it over to the pitching side, looking at one of the top prep arms in the upcoming draft, Brady Aiken. Most rankings have Aiken in the 7-10 range, which means he is likely a player the Mets are paying close attention to. Brady Aiken, Cathedral Catholic H.S (CA) Position: Pitcher Height: 6’4 Weight: 210 Bats/Throws: Left/Left Aiken is a lanky, projectable kid […]
North side, east side Little Willy Willy wears the crown He’s the best damn shortstop ’round town Backhand, forehand Willy drives them silly He’s a contact bat an’ a whole bunch more than that ‘Cos little Willy, Willy won’t go home But you can’t push Willy round, Willy won’t go Try tellin’ everybody but, oh no Little Willy, Willy won’t go home Lyrics adapted from “Little Willy” by The Sweet I know, I know, don’t […]

The Mets (70-84) defeated the Phillies (71-83) by a score of 5-4 in a rain-shortened game on Saturday night in Philadelphia. Dillon Gee got the win, tossing 6+ decent innings (4 runs, 7 hits, 0 walks, 3 strikeouts) before the game was called off in the bottom of the seventh. The Phillies struck first on a sac fly in the 2nd inning, but the Mets were able to tie it thanks to David Wright‘s 2nd […]
Philadelphia Phillies at New York Mets Citi Field • 7:10 PM Cliff Lee (10-6, 3.16) vs Zack Wheeler (6-2, 3.49) I’m so devastated in a baseball sense by today’s news on Matt Harvey… He was supposed to be the poster boy for the new Mets renaissance… Now I don’t know what to think or how to feel…. That said, there is a game today… @MattHarvey33 Thanks for all the hope & optimism you've given Mets fans. Thanks for […]
TIGERS LEAVE METS IN TATTERS AFTER 11-3 MAULING The Mets got pounced on by the Tigers who beat them 11-3 this afternoon at Citi Field to complete a three game sweep and leave them licking their wounds. Dillon Gee started for the Mets and wasn’t nearly as sharp as we’ve seen from him of late. The right-hander let up four runs and got knocked around for ten hits including home runs to Andy Dirks and […]
I know this probably isn’t going to be a popular opinion around here, so let me preface it by saying this — I think Shin-Soo Choo is pretty good. However, I don’t think he’s the type of player the Mets should be allocating their available funds to. I know Mets fans are clamoring to root for a winner. I don’t, however, think the Mets need to go out and spend money this offseason. Some fans […]
