Collins Could Move A Suddenly Hot Jason Bay Up In Order

An article by posted on June 22, 2011 0 Comments

Last night, struggling leftfielder Jason Bay homered for the first time since May 13 in the sixth, breaking a string of 104 at-bats without one. Bay also hadn’t had an extra-base hit since May 20, a stretch of 89 at-bats. It was a great night for Bay who also blasted a triple off the wall, and […]

Jose Reyes Has As Many Triples As Jason Bay Has RBI

An article by posted on June 17, 2011 0 Comments

I really wanted to get this post up a few days ago, because my original post was going to be titled “Jose Reyes has more triples that Jason Bay has RBI”.  A few days ago that was the case, as Reyes had 11 triples to Jason’s 10 RBI.  It came up in a conversation with […]

Morning Grind: Mets Pitchers Have Been Terrible On Offense, Even For A Pitcher

Mets pitchers in 2011 have just been pathetic at the plate. Yes, pitchers are suppose to be “the easy out” in the lineup, and more often than not, they are retired, but not at the pitiful rate the Mets pitching staff has. Mets pitchers are batting a collective .073 with 5 walks compared to 55 punchouts in 123 at-bats. The Mets pitcher’s […]

Red Hot Duda Gets The Call

As some suspected, the Mets will recall Lucas Duda from Triple-A Buffalo in time for tonight’s game against the Pirates,. Duda will replace Nick Evans, who was designated for assignment last night. Duda is batting .302 with 10 home runs and 24 RBI in 38 games/154 at-bats with Buffalo. In his last ten games, he’s hit .389 with 10 runs scored, […]

Terry Shuffles Lineup, Who Should Bat Cleanup?

An article by posted on June 6, 2011 0 Comments

I like what Collins did in finally moving Bay down in the order.  I know it was made easier because guys like Murphy, Turner and Pagan are hitting so well right now.  But, it was a much deserved demotion for Jason who has not been the player we thought we were signing.  WIth Bay out […]

The Curious Case Of Josh Thole.

An article by posted on June 2, 2011 0 Comments

It seems like just two years ago, a 53 at bat appearance from an apparent non-prospect catcher Josh Thole showed the Mets their backsto of the future, hitting .321 with nine RBI and a 4/5 BB/K ratio. He had plate discipline, a short swing and was not named Brian Schneider. 2009 saw the Mets go […]

Is It Time To Move Pagan Back To Top Of The Order?

An article by posted on May 30, 2011 0 Comments

Since coming off the disabled list, Angel Pagan has been a hitting machine. With his hot return, it begs the question of whether Terry Collins should re-insert Pagan into the No. 2 spot in the lineup. As Pagan regains his stroke, Justin Turner continues handling the bat well, which is ideal for a No. 2 […]

The Invisible Top Prospect Wilmer Flores

An article by posted on May 27, 2011 0 Comments

Amidst this crazy season, it’s easy to forget about a guy who most of upper management is hoping will be apart of the team’s future within the next few years. Flores, 19, is the prototypical Mets prospect in that he’s young and raw with unlimited amounts of potential. They signed him as an undrafted free […]

Justin Turner “Un-Vail-ed”

It seems like a lot of people have sent the Justin Turner bandwagon into overdrive. From #JustinTurnerFacts on Twitter (tip of the blue Mets cap to The Daily Stache for creating what has become a trending topic on Twitter) to this guy who’s written too many blogs on him recently, Justin Turner seems to be […]
