Here are a couple of Mets injury updates… There is still no timetable for left fielder Lucas Duda (intercostal strain) returning to the big-league team. Last week, Terry Collins said that he was progressing much slower than the team initially anticipated and that he could be out until late July. That would seem like an optimistic projection now and there’s a chance he won’t return until August. Compounding the issue will be where Duda plays […]
Last night, just before the game, Mark Simon tweeted that in the last 30 days, the Mets led MLB with 90 Good Fielding Plays. Not surprising to see David Wright and Omar Quintanilla leading the pack here… The Mets had a rough start to the season defensively. The usually reliable Ike Davis was taking his slump to the field with him, Ruben Tejada was more erratic then ever, and Collin Cowgill and Lucas Duda didn’t […]
KIRK, KIRK, KIRK, KIRK, KIRK, KIRK… What a comedy of errors we had in this one as the New York Mets walloped the Milwaukee Brewers by the score of 12-5 tonight at Miller Park. This was a fun game and I hope you all got a chance to watch it. I’m going to forego a retelling of all the many Brewer baserunning blunders and just get to the stuff we really care about – what did […]
I think that the Mets, including Terry Collins have figured out what to do with this lineup. The Mets seem to be clicking a bit lately and I believe it has to do with the lineup being somewhat steady. Collins is still trying to figure out what works for him, but the addition of Eric Young has solidified the top of the order and his versatility of playing second base has been a key addition […]
Last year, the Mets whiffed on a trade that brought Ramon Ramirez and Andres Torres to New York in exchange for Angel Pagan. The deal was supposed to deal one of the Mets many outfielders, for a need which was middle relief and also bring in a veteran outfielder to fill the gap. Ramirez never lived up to the expectation of being a quality reliever, but was the trade really a whiff when you look […]
The Mets defeated the Diamondbacks at Citi Field on Tuesday night by a score of 9-1. Jeremy Hefner earned his third win of the season with another solid start, and New York handed Patrick Corbin his first loss. The game started slowly for both teams, with both Hefner and Corbin dealing out of the gate. Anthony Recker broke a scoreless tie with a solo shot to left in the bottom of the fifth, giving the Mets […]
Juan Lagares is covering lots of ground in center field and Mark Simon of ESPN New York has the clear and convincing evidence of just how much better Lagares has been over every other Mets center fielder. “The average center fielder makes an ‘out of zone’ catch every 14 innings,” he says. “Juan Lagares has made one every seven innings, basically amounting to one per game.” “Those catches add to Lagares’ value, though they’ve come at a cost […]
Ahhh, what a week! Taking 3 out of 5 in Atlanta AND 2 out of 3 in Philly is a huge breath of fresh air for this slumping ballclub (and maybe another sign of the decline of western civilization!). Even though they stumbled out of the blocks at the start of the week, not giving Gee any run support and losing on a walk-off by Chipper—I mean, Freddie Freeman, they were, for the most part, […]
For a majority of you who visit this site, you watch too much baseball. How else would you describe watching the Mets day-after-day? The more you watch, the more you become desensitized. Most plays start to seem ordinary. That tends to happen to me. I got a chance to watch yesterday’s 4-3 win against the Phillies with a friend of mine. She hardly watches baseball. She couldn’t tell you the difference between the leadoff and […]
