Marlon Byrd Might Do What No Met Has Done Before

Power hitters don’t usually run very well.  And speedsters aren’t prone to hitting home runs.  So it would be reasonable to say that players who are among the league leaders in home runs don’t usually find their names near the top of the triples leader board.  Of course, there have been some exceptions over the […]

Is Elvis Andrus An Option For The Mets This Winter?

Hey Joe, Just read today that Elvis Andrus had cleared waivers. As you posted yesterday and in the past, a glaring hole that needs to be filled going forward is a legitimate everyday shortstop. I believe you also mentioned his name along with Jurickson Profar as well.

Juan Lagares: The Future Is Here

Considering how many years I have been extolling the virtues of Juan Lagares, I found it almost embarrassing this morning when I discovered that I never designed a custom graphic for him in all this time. Can you ever forgive me Don Juan? This talented prospect whose combination of power, speed and defense has seduced […]

Eric Young Jr. Has Quickly Become A Fan Favorite

Eric Young Jr. Is Exciting To Watch, Gives Team The Speed It’s Been Lacking

From 2003-2011, speed at the top of the lineup was rarely an issue for the New York Mets. Whether the offense was surging or slumping, Jose Reyes was always a spark plug for the team both on and off the field. Now ever since Reyes took his talents to South Beach and was soon after […]

Flores Working Hard To Prove Doubters Wrong On Defense

So in yesterday’s MiLB Report, Adam Rubin noted that Wilmer Flores would miss the Triple-A All-Star game with an ankle injury — but the injury itself is considered to be minor. It’s bad timing for Flores, but his longterm health is more important than one exhibition game. One of the things that might have went by the […]
