An MMO Fan Shot by Bill Tourjee The Mets #1 position player prospect in MLB’s rankings, catcher Kevin Plawecki, continues to be mentioned as a possible trade chip. But should he be made available, even if the trade returns a high-end SS or prospect? It would be safe to say that most GMs prefer to […]
Tag: David Wright
I was thinking last night as the Mets had a comfortable three-run lead, that maybe, just maybe they have turned a corner and that I can write something positive today. But in the back of my mind I was thinking that a 3-run lead with a (let’s face it) still-shaky bullpen was not going to hold up against the Marlins.
I’m finding some interesting reads this morning from some who are concerned about David Wright’s lack of production this month. Newsday narrows it down for us… After hitting .342 (13-for-38) in his first 10 games, Wright is hitting .188 (6-for-32) in his last eight to drop his average to .271. He has only six RBIs, […]
Jerry Manuel is fed up with the lack of production from his offense and he has decided to shake things up for this afternoon’s game against the Cardinals. A frustrated Manuel said, ” Things aren’t working right now. I need to give our hottest hitter, Carlos Beltran more at-bats.” Well wake up and smell the […]
Not too long ago, Mets fans were second-guessing the decision to sign Luis Castillo to such a long-term deal. But Castillo is off to an amazing start this year, beginning last night 4th in the league in hitting, and he continued his hot streak last night against the Cardinals. David Wright, on the other hand, […]
UPDATE: It looks like MetsBlog and Adam Rubin accidentaly posted the wrong lineups today, but I’m gonna keep this blog going just for a good argument and debate. MetsBlog and Adam Rubin are reporting that Carlos Beltran will be batting third tonight and David Wright drops down to the fifth spot in the lineup. Let […]
Another 13 runners left on base, was the dark side to an otherwise satisfying win Friday night against the Brewers. It’s a trend that has become all too prevalent for this offense which returned intact from last season. Now with just ten games in the books, the Mets have left 89 runners on base. That […]
This Mets team is struggling to get started this year. Not for a lack of production from its 4-5-6 hitters, or so the boxscore would have you imagine. Carlos Delgado has hit the ground running with a .343 BA and 3 dingers. Carlos Beltran is hitting .333. Ryan Church is batting a stellar .419 with 6 doubles!! How is […]
The Mets came within inches of a win when David Wright blasted the first Mets homer at Citi Field, a three run shot that tied the game at 5-5, but the Mets flamed out after that and lost 6-5 to the Padres. Mike Pelfrey started but it didn’t take long for him to get into […]
It’s amazing to me how some people not only try to play armchair general manager, but how they can make some absolutely idiotic trade proposals. On LoHud.com yesterday, a dude named “80s Joel” proposed that the Mets trade David Wright to the Rays for Evan Longoria.
Here are some statistical achievements and even numbers some Mets players could pass this year (In no Particular Order): Sheffield 500 HR Castillo 1500 G Delgado 1500 RBI Beltran 1000 RBI Reyes 1000 H Delgado 500 2B Delgado 500 HR Wright 200 2B Wright 500 RBI Wright 100 SB Reyes 200 2B Reyes 300 SB […]
