Most baseball pundits cast off the Mets’ outfield as being the worst in the league heading into the season. On paper, maybe that is correct, but based on performance, the Mets outfield hasn’t been all that bad. Lucas Duda has looked good offensively, Marlon Byrd has had some big hits, Mike Baxter gives all-out effort every time he’s on the field, and Jordany Valdespin proved last night what a great asset he is to the […]
I cringed as Domonic Brown’s three-run home run in the bottom of the first inning disappeared deep into the stands at Citizens Bank Park last night. Phillies 5, Mets 0 before we even blinked. But then I realized that Citizens Bank Park is band box, and one or two big swings would get the Mets right back in the game. Sure enough, homers from the red-hot John Buck and Lucas Duda made it a 5-2 […]
I arrived at Citi Field last night as any eager Met fan after an impressive Opening Day win. But there was one problem: It was absolutely freezing! That hasn’t stopped me before, but based on the wind, I had a feeling I was in store for a low-scoring game. I even turned to my buddy before the game and told him to look at how quickly the flags on the top of the stadium were […]

Francisco Rodriguez spoke with reporters during yesterday’s contest in Port St. Lucie between the Mets and Team Venezuela, which is gearing up to compete in the World Baseball Classic. K-Rod said he would welcome a reunion with the Mets and would be extra motivated if given a second chance to redeem himself. Rodriguez is currently a free agent, and the Mets showed minimal interest earlier in the offseason. But please, please, please Sandy Alderson: Don’t […]
I’m sure many of us are excited to see the Mets’ catcher of the future, Travis d’Arnaud, take the field this spring. Sure, he likely won’t head north with the big club right away, but all reports indicate that he is the real deal. I don’t know about you, but I am definitely seeking the reassurance that d’Arnaud has what it takes to be a Major League catcher. Luckily, I received that reassurance a few […]
Updated by Joe D. According to Mike Puma of the NY Post, after telling reporters that Frank Francisco has been shut down due to inflammation in his right elbow, Mets manager Terry Collins told Puma that “he wants Bobby Parnell to take over as the team’s closer.” “We keep talking about 2014 … why not get a head start?” Collins said. “I’m not panicking, but you’ve got to get somebody ready, and Bobby to me is […]
I am so excited to receive my copy of Mike Piazza’s autobiography, Long Shot, which I pre-ordered several weeks ago. But of course, I can’t control myself in reading all the news stories about what is actually in the book before I read it for myself. So that leads me to a very intriguing discussion. Piazza admitted in his book to using androstenedione and Ephedra before the substances were banned, according to the New York […]
The Mets seem to be rolling the dice when it comes to bringing in veterans on minor-league deals to compete for spots in the bullpen. The team will likely head north in about two months with seven relievers, but spring training will decide who those lucky seven are. LaTroy Hawkins and Scott Atchison were recently signed to minor-league deals. Do these guys have enough left in the tank to be contributors to this year’s bullpen? […]
