So the inevitable has occurred, albeit much later than originally expected: Jason Bay is no longer a New York Met. I’m sure there is much joy about this decision in Mets nation and rightfully so. The Bay signing will go down as the worst free agent contract in Mets history. That said, I’m wishing Bay the best of luck in resurrecting his career with another team, preferably in the American League. I’ll be the first […]
On the heels of their sixth consecutive disappointing season, the Mets entered this offseason with another set of tempered expectations. Having force fed fans a vision of contention for the 2014 season with the arrival of key pitching prospects, the Mets enter this winter with more questions than answers yet again. Devoid of a quality major league outfielder and without a solid anchor behind the plate, it would appear that the Mets must still renovate […]
“Baseball is ninety percent mental and the other half is physical.” – Yogi Berra Everyone loves a good “Yogism.” The funny thing about that one in particular, is that it makes absolutely no sense, and yet it makes perfect sense at the same time. Yogi’s math didn’t add up, but he was definitely on to something. Psychologists are more convinced than ever that our lives gravitate toward the directions of our most dominant thoughts. In […]
It was great to see Scott Hairston hit a home run yesterday to reach the 20-home run plateau in a Mets victory on the final day of the season. Hairston was a consistent performer this season as he set a new career-high in games played with 134. He hit extremely well against left-handed pitching so he earned time as a platoon player, but based on the Mets lackluster offense, Hairston found himself in the lineup […]
It comes as no surprise that the New York Mets have gone on record as saying they will not be releasing Jason Bay prior to the 2013 season. With the amount of money that is invested in Jason Bay, it is better to hang on to him and see if he can turn it around, instead of getting nothing in return for the investment. In the business world, these are considered sunk costs – costs […]
I know what you thinking.. How on earth could we spend the entire season talking about the bullpen…that woeful bullpen…and suddenly decide that the team’s offense should be the top priority this offseason? Heres why: Mets rank 8th in MLB with 1,169 strike outs. Mets rank 22nd in MLB on the year, hitting just .242 with RISP Mets rank 24th in MLB with only 407 extra-base hits, resulting in a .383 slugging percentage. Good for […]
Its hard to fathom now, but the Mets had a realistic shot at the playoffs only one month ago. Since then the team has taken a turn for the worst with a lot of poorly played baseball compounded by additional injuries. In the process, the current situation has re-highlighted some glaring issues that the team’s successful first half had given us the luxury of forgetting about. First and foremost, the team’s pitching staff desperately needs […]
The very hot topic lately with the Metsmerized Nation, and with Mets fans in general, has been the future of the Metropolitans’ outfield, and more specifically, Jason Bay’s future with the team. Mike B noted in his post earlier that Sandy Alderson has stated that the Mets are not simply going to eat Bay’s contract and release him. This all but crushes many Mets fans dreams of a team without the automatic out that we […]
Right now the Mets outfield situation is a disaster. Who would have thought that not one single player would solidify himself this season as a starter for 2013. Just about everyone we have thrown out there has left something to be desired. There is still time for that to change, but time is running out quickly. The Amazin: Where would we be without Scott Hairston? He is so scary good against lefties that he bats cleanup for […]
