Call me crazy, but I’d like to see Josh Satin hitting cleanup. I think he can hit and be very productive on the Major League level. Yes, he took several years to make it to the majors, but let’s also not forget that his path to the bigs was blocked by David Wright at third base and Ike Davis at first base. He is most certainly not a prototypical cleanup hitter and no one will […]
Last night Brian Kenny (@MrBrianKenny), formerly of ESPN and currently at MLB Network tweeted out his rules for fixing the Mets. Aside from being a fan of his, I found these rules to be interesting and agreed with most, if not all of them. So I decided I’d pass them along to you guys with some thoughts of my own. Rule #1 to rebuild Mets. No league average free agents. That includes pitchers.. — Brian […]
I previously posed the question if a player can develop plate discipline at the minor league level to lay off bad pitches, does that translate into major league success? Let’s do a little rewind to see how a 12% walk rate translated over time, shall we? Over the course of 502 plate appearances, a 12% walk rate (the minimum number of appearances needed to qualify for a MLB batting title) would yield 60 walks. 550 […]
Happy Thanksgiving, Mets Fans. Do we have anything to be thankful for in 2013? Is that even possible? On this day of thanks, let’s look at the positives this year and give thanks for these few special moments out of the multitude of bad ones. David Wright is currently in his prime. He put up some outstanding numbers yet again, but with another weak lineup. If this front office can put a few bats around […]
Mike asks… Just wondering what you think it would take to get one of Didi Gregorius or Chris Owings from the Arizona Diamondbacks? They seem to have a surplus at shortstop as well as outfield. So what kind of a package would you hope the Mets could work out? Teddy replies… To Sir Mike, I don’t think it should be a package. If it were me, I’d go after Chris Owings for shortstop. Many have […]
After passing his physical, the Mets officially announced the signing of our new rightfielder Chris Young this afternoon. “Chris has had a distinguished career to this point and we think with regular playing time we think he can return to his all-star caliber performance,” GM Sandy Alderson said. “He’s a tremendous defensive outfielder, brings some power, the approach we’re looking for offensively and some speed on the bases.” Alderson said that Young could bat anywhere from 5-7 […]
David Wright is making the rounds… After hitting WFAN with Francesa on Monday, today he was a guest of Mike Lupica on ESPN NY 98.7 FM. “I think Sandy has a plan in place and I think he’s got a few tricks up his sleeve starting at the winter meetings,” Wright said. “Everybody knew that the free-agent prices were going to be high this year with the new TV deal and things like that, Wright […]
Jhonny Peralta has signed a four-year, $52 million contract to play shortstop for the St. Louis Cardinals. Stephen Drew is still out there, but is surprisingly not getting much attention. (Injury history, anyone?) Ben Zobrist could be traded for, but Tampa Bay really loves him and would more than likely ask for a king’s ransom in exchange for Zobrist. But there is one veteran middle infielder out there who isn’t getting much attention, but he […]
“We’ve got to find us somebody who can keep opposing pitchers from pitching around David Wright” It’s no secret what Terry Collins is hoping for this holiday season. A bright and shiny power hitter. The problem is that power hitters are in short supply in this year’s free agent market, with unlikely targets like Robinson Cano, Carlos Beltran and Mike Napoli representing the best of the best in the home run department. The Blue Jays, Rockies and Angels reportedly all had […]
