Jose Reyes Is Running Again And Making A Rapid Recovery

Former Mets shortstop Jose Reyes continues to make a rapid recovery from the severely sprained left ankle he suffered on April 12. Reyes started running for the first time on Friday, and he continues to push the envelope in his recovery process, according to Team officials. “It was a little bit scary for me,” Reyes […]

Is Ike Davis Really Mike Jacobs Reincarnated?

It always is interesting how people automatically call a hitter that hits homers, strikes out a lot and has a low average “Dave Kingman.” Kong certainly had his issues, but regardless of what you think he still had a 16-year career in which he hit 442 homers. To say that Ike Davis is Kingman would […]

Is Collins The Blame For Team’s Poor Performance, Or Is He Just The Patsy?

While all the talk lately has been about whether or not it’s time to end the Terry Collins era as manager of the Mets, how much of the blame for the team’s poor performance should be equally shared with the architect and general manager, Sandy Alderson? Joel Sherman of the New York Post, pops the […]

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.

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 […]

Is Keith Hernandez Slipping?

I don’t know what’s up with Keith Hernandez lately. I mean he’s always been kind of funny, provides great insights, is definitely entertaining and amusing, and he keeps each Mets broadcast light-hearted and serious all at the same time (when he’s there). The truth is that love him. I was crazy about him as a […]

Remember When We Used To Joke About Daniel Murphy’s Defense?

Come on, admit it… At one time or another you made a joke about Daniel Murphy at second base since the day he took over the position once Jose Reyes was not re-signed and Ruben Tejada slid over to shortstop. Was the criticism harsh and often times deserved? Maybe… Maybe not… Ok, yes it was… But seeing is believing […]

Valdespin Delivers a Big Hit for Mets When it Counts the Most

“IT’S OUTTA HERE, A Grand Slam from Valdespin to win the ballgame”, call courtesy of Gary Cohen. The more and more I watch Jordany Valdespin play, the more I like him.  Yeah I know, he isn’t in the plans and he is not liked.  What is not to like, I mean, he has speed, yes that has […]

Ruben Tejada Continues To Be Erratic At Shortstop

Ruben Tejada Continues To Be Erratic At Shortstop

Replacing Jose Reyes was never going to be easy, but with Ruben Tejada’s fielding prowess if he could hit just a little that would be acceptable to the Mets. Perhaps that should read, “former fielding prowess.’’ Trouble is, he’s not hitting or fielding. He’s not even just holding his own; he’s been poor at both, actually terrible. Tejada has […]
