With Ike Davis Struggling, What Are The Mets’ Options?

With the way Ike Davis has been hitting lately, there has been a ton of talk has about sending the slumping lefty down to Triple-A to try and figure things out. With good reason, some are questioning whether or not Davis is the first baseman of the future anymore. Everyone is chiming in on how […]

Valdespin Would Have Fit Right In With The 1986 Mets

There are many adjectives that are used in conjunction with the 86 Mets. Confidence. Arrogance. Swagger. Obnoxious. But they were good, damn good. And they knew it. That’s a far cry from the 2013 Mets. However, it’s not just wins that count. It’s playing as a cohesive unit. It’s playing as, no pun intended, a TEAM. […]

Mets Waste Solid Start By Marcum In 4-2 Loss To Cardinals

Lately, it seems the only thing the Mets excel at is finding ways to lose. Shaun Marcum had his first quality start as a Met, going 6.2 innings allowing three runs (two earned) on five hits while walking one and punching out three. He threw 96 pitches, 65 of which for strikes, however fell to […]

Featured Post: Seeking A Villain For The Mets’ Hitting Woes

An incredible 46 strikeouts in the Mets’ last four games… Hmmm. Let’s see, whom can we blame? I know, lets blame batting coach Dave Hudgens and his approach to work the count, be selective, and get a pitch and drive it. That’s it, his approach is wrong. It is why they are striking out so many times. […]

Those Who Contribute the Least Shouldn’t Be Made the Story

Mets historians will recall how former GM Frank Cashen declared, ““those who contribute the least spray the most champagne” after being doused by reliever Randy Niemann during the 1986 NLCS championship celebration. I think it’s time to take that mantra when it comes to Jordany Valdespin, except those that contribute the least shouldn’t be made the story.

Mets Lose Third Straight In 3-2 Loss To Bucs

PRETTY IN PINK? The Mets were beaten by the Pittsburgh Pirates by the score of 3-2 this afternoon in front of a nicely packed Mother’s Day crowd at Citi Field. Matt Harvey started and while he pitched good enough to win, he wasn’t at his best and he seemed to rely mostly on a variety of breaking […]

Does Buck and Plawecki Make d’Arnaud Trade Bait For Power Outfielder?

Ike Davis frustrates me. Unlike Lucas Duda who was drafted much later in the draft, expectations have always been really high for the first-round first baseman and for the most part I’ve wanted more from him than what he’s shown thus far. I gave Davis a pass during last season’s first half, what with the […]

DAVID WRIGHT, 3B MMO PLAYER OF THE WEEK David Wright copped his third MMO Player of the Week honor after what may have been his most productive week of the season. The feisty third baseman had a few run-ins the umps this past week which is something we don’t see too much of from him, but […]
