Fernando Tatis will be at first base tonight when the Mets take the field against the Florida Marlins. Carlos Delgado who was originally scheduled for a day off on Wednesday, will sit this one out due to a sore hip. For Tatis, it will be his first start of the season at first base. Delgado won’t be the only regular player riding the bench for the game, as left fielder Daniel Murphy will be keeping [...]
Dan Murphy is a good kid and a hard worker, as Jerry Manuel said yesterday, “He has done everything we have asked of him”. His performance at the plate has been solid and he currently wields a .320 average to go with his team leading 12 runs scored. As a table setter and number two hitter, you can’t ask for much more from a player in his first full season in the majors. So what’s [...]
I guess a three game sweep was too much to ask for as the Mets wasted plenty of scoring opportunities and fell to the Brewers 4-2. The problem with this loss is that the Mets squandered a gutsy start by Nelson Figueroa who did all he could manage to keep the Mets in the game and within striking distance. Figueroa pitched six innings and allowed 3 runs on just five hits while dealing with an [...]

The best part was that remarkable diving catch and getting up to fire a bullet to double up the runner for [...]
As I posted earlier, the Mets could be on the verge of signing Gary Sheffield as soon as tonight. In addition to the sources I already mentioned this morning, Joel Sherman of the NY Post adds a little more clarity to the situation and writes, The Mets are closing in on signing Gary Sheffield, likely today, with an eye on giving him significant playing time, according to two people involved in the talks. “Unless something drastic [...]
The Mets outfield has some question marks going into the season – but it should have the depth to be solid all year. Other then Jeremy Reed replacing Endy Chavez, it will look similar to the end of the last year. Although it has some questions, the pieces fit together nicely to give it depth should anyone not live up to expectations. In left field, Daniel Murphy and Fernando Tatis figure to split time – [...]
