On Thursday, MLB owners unanimously voted on funding that would expand instant replay in baseball. There are still plenty of details that need to be worked out before the final votes by the owners are cast, but pending player’s union approval, it looks like this is going to be a go. This is something that has been in the works since the summer. Touching on it briefly, it looks as if managers will be allowed […]
I’m not big on making free agent predictions during the MLB Hot Stove season, but I usually have one or two guys that I like to recommend the Mets pursue. Last year, I suggested the Mets pursue Jair Jurrjens, which in hindsight looks awful now, but on a minor league deal it made sense to take a flier on him. For a number of reasons, the Mets should consider offering Phil Hughes an one or […]
Is it me, or does it suddenly feel like the sky is falling? On the heels of the terrible news that Mets ace Matt Harvey has a partially torn UCL, top prospect Noah Syndergaard had the worst outing of his professional career. Taking the mound tonight against Bowie, Syndergaard had been brilliant over his last four starts– allowing just one earned run in total. Well things definitely took a turn for the worse, and quickly. […]
The trade winds are blowing, which means the ideas are coming! We received the following message from Ramon. I recently read that Starlin Castro was available, along with Carlos Gonzalez. Do you see it possible for the Mets to acquire Castro? What do you think it would cost the Mets to acquire both him (considering we’d be buying low since he’s had a poor season)? What about CarGo as well? Starlin Castro is a very interesting situation. At 23 […]
I started writing this post about a week after the start of free agency. It ended up on the back burner as the Mets off season took on a life and a news cycle of its own. This morning, I came across an excellent blog post by Mike Silva of NYBD on this very subject which inspired me to go through all of my unfinished drafts. What originally motivated me to research and write a piece like this […]
There is so much talk about what the Mets need next year. Should we build a team to take advantage of the CitiField dimensions? That means pitching, defense, and speed. Maybe the answer is yes. But you cannot ignore the need for power in the lineup. Here are some interesting statistics. The Mets had 93 homerless games during the 2009 season: 46 at CitiField and 47 on the road. The Yankees had 30 homerless games during […]
The last couple of weeks fans and writers have been talking about the lack of power the Mets have displayed so far this season. The Mets this year have hit only 34 home-runs. Obviously the absence of Carlos Delgado has affected the number of home-runs the Mets will hit this season. Jose Reyes, who also has a lot of pop in his bat is out until the All-Star break. David Wright has so far only […]
Everyone is blaming Citi Field for the Mets power outage this season, but is that really the case? While researching for another post this morning, I took a look at some Mets team stats and came across some information that some of you may find surprising. I learned that the Mets have hit more homeruns and have a higher homerun per game percentage at Citi Field than they have on the road. In 26 games […]
Yes, I’ve heard all the gloomy numbers regarding the Mets homerun drought. They haven’t homered in 69 straight innings and 307 plate appearances. David Wright was asked about the recent power outage and this is what he said to reporters on Wednesday, “We’ve played in big parks,” third baseman David Wright said, fully aware that they’ll now play in a small one. “I’m not worried about the home runs. That’s the last thing I’m concerned […]
