In a chat for ESPN Insider, baseball analyst Keith Law fielded a couple of questions about the Mets including one on Juan Lagares. Keith Law: Pretty darn good defender, better than I’d ever heard (never saw him before he reached the majors). He was 10th on my Mets prospect rankings before 2012, so he was on the radar, but spent about a decade in Savannah before he finally hit enough to move up the ladder. Joe […]
To celebrate the thirtieth anniversary of their batting glove, the executives at Franklin Sports held a celebratory private batting clinic with Mets second baseman, Daniel Murphy, and team batting coach, Dave Hudgens, for a few contest winners and a number of media representatives. This one hour batting session gave viewers a first-hand chance to learn from professional ballplayers in the private facilities they often inhabit. Team officials greeted the attendees just within the doors […]
In 2012, Ike Davis had valley fever. In 2012, Ike Davis was rusty because he had missed so much playing time in 2011. In 2012, the hitting approach impacted Ike Davis negatively. In 2012, Ike Davis didn’t have enough lineup protection or he was shuffled around the order too much. In 2012, Ike Davis should have been sent to the minors but instead he was allowed to “work things out” at the big league level, […]
With the Miami Marlins rolling into Citi Field tonight and the memory of their sweep over the Mets still fresh in our minds, here is some added incentive for the Mets to come out swinging this evening. Entering tonight’s contest, the Mets are hitting .228 as a team, baseball’s second-worst average. The only team worse is… wait for it… the Miami Marlins, who are just one-thousandth of a percentage behind with .227 average. Andrew Keh […]
The Mets have just two legitimate major league hitters in their lineup; David Wright and Daniel Murphy. When the two of them are hot and the Mets get a good pitching performance, the odds are pretty good that they will gut out a win and perhaps even reel off a five game winning streak. But when the two of them combine to go 0-for-8 don’t hold your breath waiting for something good to happen. The […]
Marc Carig of Newsday talked to Ike Davis about what some believe to be the main culprit in his prolonged slump at the plate; the pronounced hand drop as the ball is being released by the pitcher. “I’ve always wanted to stop my hands from dropping,” Davis told Carig. “But I’ve always swung like that. Obviously, it’s not something that you want all the time, but I mean, Barry Bonds dropped his hands. A lot of people did and had […]
An incredible 46 strikeouts in the Mets’ last four games… Hmmm. Let’s see, whom can we blame? I know, lets blame batting coach Dave Hudgens and his approach to work the count, be selective, and get a pitch and drive it. That’s it, his approach is wrong. It is why they are striking out so many times. They are taking, taking, falling behind, and then whiffing. Damn, it’s Hudgens’ fault. That’s the current analysis of the Mets’ […]
Now that I’ve had some time to cool off, I was wondering how the rest of the Mets blogosphere was reacting to Spin-Gate and was surprised to find little to nothing about it on MetsBlog or anywhere else for that matter. Could it be I’m just overreacting? It wouldn’t be the first time… However I did learn the Mets are recalling reliever Greg Burke because the Mets bullpen is overworked. It’s only May 11th, and […]
