Duda Says He’s Done Enough For Everyday Job, But Does Sandy Share His Opinion?

Lucas Duda fully understands the lay of the land in Flushing these days, and knows his hold on an everyday job at first base in 2014 is tenuous at best. While he feels he has done enough to be considered as an every-day player by Sandy Alderson, he understands the decision ultimately lies in the hands […]

A Look Forward to the 2014 Mets Infield

“What Outfield?” Much has been said regarding the future of the Mets’ outfield, with many suggesting a run at CarGo, Ellsbury, Choo, or Stanton. That certainly should be a focal point for this offseason; however, with the lack of production from the infield, even more questions have emerged. Let’s take a look at the situation […]

D’Arnaud Day To Day With Stiff Shoulder

Mets catcher Travis d’Arnaud left tonight’s game with a sore right shoulder after being struck by a foul tip off the bat of San Francisco Giants outfielder Hunter Pence. Leading off the second inning, Pence fouled a 3-0 fastball straight back, striking d’Arnaud in the shoulder. The rookie catcher stayed in the game for another […]

MMO Fan Shot: Examining The Shortstop Market For The Mets

While we have spent much time debating over whether to trade for Elvis Andrus or Jurickson Profar, the word out of Arlington is that neither Profar or Andrus will be dangled this offseason. Rather, Ian Kinsler is the player the Rangers would prefer to trade. Profar is 21; Andrus is 24; Kinsler is 31. Therefore, […]

Mets Minors: Cecchini Extends Hitting Streak To 14 Games

At just 19-years old, shortstop Gavin Cecchini is now beginning to deliver on some of the potential some that led the Mets to select him with their top pick (12th overall) in the 2012 First Year Play Draft. Last night for the Brooklyn Cyclones, Cecchini went 1-for-4 with walk to extend his hitting streak to […]

Lucas Duda Sums Up Why He Won’t Be On The Mets Moving Forward

Lucas Duda has recently been seeing more time at first base, his natural position, rather than left field. This decision has reportedly been made solely by Triple-A manager Wally Backman, not from the front office. It’s no secret that Duda never felt comfortable in the outfield, as he could turn even the most routine of […]

An article by posted on August 2, 2013 0 Comments

In the top of the eighth inning of last night’s game Ike Davis was scheduled to come up with David Wright on 3rd and 2 outs. Ike was 2 for 3 on the night with an infield hit and an rbi double. Most encouraging was his infield hit to the left side. Something I hadn’t […]

Meet The Best Catching Prospect That Nobody Talks About

Last week, when I saw those words in my title leading off a paragraph about Kevin Plawecki, the first thing that came to my mind was that the author was obviously frequenting too many of the the wrong sites. Had he come to Metsmerized for the dope on Plawecki, he may have been talking about […]

Who Was The Biggest First Half Surprise For The Mets?

I asked my writers who they thought was the biggest surprise for the Mets in the first half, and one of the benefits of having 25-35 active writers is that it gives me a good well-rounded sense of where the Mets fan base is on these roundtable questions I like to do. As expected there […]

Flores Working Hard To Prove Doubters Wrong On Defense

So in yesterday’s MiLB Report, Adam Rubin noted that Wilmer Flores would miss the Triple-A All-Star game with an ankle injury — but the injury itself is considered to be minor. It’s bad timing for Flores, but his longterm health is more important than one exhibition game. One of the things that might have went by the […]
