Lucas Duda has recently been seeing more time at first base, his natural position, rather than left field. This decision has reportedly been made solely by Triple-A manager Wally Backman, not from the front office. It’s no secret that Duda never felt comfortable in the outfield, as he could turn even the most routine of fly balls into an adventure. His bat is what got him in the majors in the first place, but he […]
Looks like what I was afraid would happen is gonna happen… Terry Collins told reporters last night that he is going to reward Ike Davis for raising his average above the Mendoza Line by putting him against lefty starter beginning tonight against Hyun-jin Ryu or on Wednesday against Chris Capuano. Since his promotion, Davis’s batting average had climbed from .161 to .205. Of course what that doesn’t telly you is that Davis hasn’t homered in his last 110 […]
In a back and forth affair that saw multiple lead changes, some dumb decisions, and a Mets team that continues to show a little heart — they were sent away via a Paul Goldschmidt walk-off home run to start this road trip off with a loss. The Mets came in looking like a team with some momentum behind them, taking the lead in the 4th to break up what began as a pitcher’s duel. Taking […]
Six seasons of work in the making, the New York Mets finally bore witness to the fruits of their labor with the major-league debut of longtime-top prospect Wilmer Flores. Despite the o-fer in last night’s thrilling 3-2 victory in the series opener against the Colorado Rockies, Flores’ first game marks yet another infusion of quality young talent into the mix at the major league level. The young infielder has been molded by the Mets organization […]
Of course, you must have known I’d have a Custom MMO GFX ready to go for this occasion… In case you missed the big news, the New York Mets have promoted Wilmer Flores from Triple-A Las Vegas. The timing couldn’t be more perfect for the Mets and even Flores who celebrates his 22nd birthday today. This was the correct move for the Mets as it keeps Daniel Murphy at second base and Eric Young in […]
Larry Brooks penned a thought provoking column in the New York Post that magnifies the dilemma facing the Met front office in deciding how to play out the remainder of the 2013 season. A decent month of July baseball energized the Met faithful and made the Citi Field product a whole lot more satisfying to the palette. Yet, a reality check of any sort, especially with the loss of David Wright for an extended period […]
Zack Wheeler lasted just five innings as the Kansas City Royals beat the New York Mets 6-2 to win the three-game interleague series. Wheeler, now 4-2, lost for the first time in six starts. He gave up four runs — three earned — and issued five walks in his ninth start of the season. The young righty seemed to come unglued in the fifth after Marlon Byrd lost a ball in the sun and John […]
Adam Rubin of ESPN New York emailed Paul DePodesta a few questions regarding a few of the Mets prospects and regarding Wilmer Flores they had the following exchange: Asked if Wilmer Flores remaining in the minors is fielding-related, DePodesta wrote: “Wilmer played some first base largely because of the ankle injury. He had been back at second base the last couple of games now that he’s full strength. He hasn’t come up because the major […]
For the second time in two games since being named the closer while Bobby Parnell heals up, David Aardsma failed to get the job done as the Royals beat the Mets 4-3 at Citi Field this afternoon. Jeremy Hefner started the game and showed some improvement after back-to-back poor starts and delivered a quality start in a 110-pitch effort. He allowed three earned runs on eight hits, walked none and struck out six in 6.0 innings […]
