As the non-waiver trade deadline draws nearer, the Mets find themselves in what’s normally a seller’s situation. They are ten games under .500 and eleven games out of the second Wild Card spot. However, with 2014 being the year everything is supposed to start coming together, what with (presumably) plenty of money to spend and the top two starters both on the major league roster, the Mets can afford to add pieces via trade that […]
After being selected to the Triple-A All Star team for the Pacific Coast League, Wilmer Flores celebrated the occasion by going 5-for-6 with two doubles, two RBIs and a run scored. He’s now boasting a .320/.367/.520 batting line with 27 doubles, four triples and ten home runs in 325 at-bats while scoring 53 runs. Amazingly for a power hitter, Flores is only striking out at a 12% rate. The 21-year old is still playing second base everyday […]
According to a post by Adam Rubin on ESPN New York, it now appears that Josh Satin’s hot bat will be keeping Ike Davis in Triple-A Las Vegas longer than what some may have initially thought. Satin, whose RBI single in the bottom of the ninth forced extra innings last night, went 3-for-6 with two doubles and a walk in the Mets comeback win. He has now reached base safely in 12 straight games and is batting […]
The Mets won the first round of their 4-game series with the Diamondbacks at Citi Field on Monday night, beating Arizona 5-4 in 13 innings. Shaun Marcum got off to a poor start, hitting a batter and giving up a 2-run shot to Paul Goldschmidt in the first. However, after giving up another run via an Aaron Hill RBI single in the 2nd, Marcum settled in and put up a few zeroes before departing after […]
The Mets aren’t expecting a significant building block like a Carlos Gonzalez-type outfielder to land in their laps before the July 31 non-waiver trade deadline, according to Mike Puma of the New York Post. “I don’t think that’s something for right now,” a club official said yesterday. “That’s probably something more for the offseason.” It likely means that for a third straight year under general manager Sandy Alderson, the Mets will be sellers heading to […]
John Buck wen’t 0-for-4 in last night’s win over the White Sox at U.S. Cellular Field. He struck out all four time to earn the dreaded Golden Sombrero. In my recap of the 3-0 win, I mentioned that it may be time to start giving Anthony Recker a few more starts – not so much because he’s that much better than Buck, I couldn’t honestly say that. But it would be good to find out exactly what […]
White Sox 5, Mets 4 The Mets lost the series opener to the White Sox tonight by the score of 5-4 on a walkoff single in the ninth at U.S. Cellular Field. Zack Wheeler made his second start of the season and didn’t fare very well, working out of trouble throughout his stint and having command issues all night. Wheeler lasted just 5.1 innings, allowing four earned runs on four hits, a home run, three […]
After a torrid start to the season, second baseman Daniel Murphy, who occasionally moonlights at first base as well, is mired in one of his longest funks of the season and perhaps his career. With the ongoing exploits of Marlon Byrd and David Wright, and the resurgence of newly acquired Eric Young Jr., Murphy’s slump is getting little airplay. I charted his month-by-month numbers and it’s not looking very pretty for Murph. Murphy has been […]
