Nick asks… Is Juan Lagares an everyday player? He seems more like a Endy Chavez defensive substitute type to me, but I keep hearing that he has a hold on the everyday center field job. Do you think his bat will develop or will we see the same offensive production we saw last season? Any idea what kind of numbers we should look forward to? Teddy replies… I don’t think Lagares is a defensive substitute […]
The Mets 40-Man roster is now at 36 after the Angels claimed lefthander Robert Carson on waivers, the Dodgers grabbed outfielder Mike Baxter, and the team outrighted LHP Sean Henn and RHP Greg Burke. Expect more purging as the Mets must make room for Ike Davis, Josh Edgin, Matt Harvey, Jeremy Hefner, Jenrry Mejia, Bobby Parnell, Scott Rice and Johan Santana who must all be activated from 60-day disabled list and placed on the 40-man roster. So technically, the Mets now have 44 players which means four […]
Opening Day Lead-off Man, Collin Cowgill On September 22, 2013, Rob Rogan of Mets360.com wrote an article titled, The 2013 Mets were worse than you thought. In his article, he includes the following table to show how the Mets performed by position using fWAR: From April 20 - May 25, the Mets record was 9-22, a .290 winning percentage. Horrible. Their opponents were: Nationals, Dodgers, Phillies, Marlins, Braves, White Sox, Pirates, Cardinals, Cubs, Reds, and Braves. Some […]
The Mets announced that Aaron Harang will get the start on Thursday against the Washington Nationals. Harang, 35, had his contract selected today from Las Vegas (AAA) of the Pacific Coast League and will wear uniform No. 44. Recently, he pitched 6.0 innings, allowed six hits, three runs, earned, issued two walks and struck out six vs. Salt Lake in Game Four of the PCL semi-finals on September 7. The veteran righthander was 5-11 with a 5.76 ERA in 22 starts […]
Ever since we acquired Eric Young Jr. from Colorado after they placed him on waivers, I never looked at him as anything more than a utility outfielder. I saw a player who was taking advantage of his increased playing time which came as a result of flops by Collin Cowgill, Lucas Duda, Kirk Nieuwenhuis and Mike Baxter. Young took hold of his new opportunity and has exceeded everyone’s expectations. Mark Simon of ESPN New York […]
Providing the weather clears, the New York Mets will run out another rookie this afternoon: lanky center fielder Matt den Dekker. This kid can fly and run down a ball in the gap with anybody the Mets have, but is a slow study at the plate. Den Dekker’s opportunity comes in the aftermath of the trade of Marlon Byrd to Pittsburgh. A capsule of den Dekker’s production was last year when he hit .340 at Double-A Binghamton, but […]
In a chat for ESPN Insider, baseball analyst Keith Law fielded a couple of questions about the Mets including one on Juan Lagares. Keith Law: Pretty darn good defender, better than I’d ever heard (never saw him before he reached the majors). He was 10th on my Mets prospect rankings before 2012, so he was on the radar, but spent about a decade in Savannah before he finally hit enough to move up the ladder. Joe […]
What a week we just wrapped up and as is usually the case, there’s plenty of storylines and news we can talk about before the Mets take the field at 10:10 PM against the Los Angeles Dodgers. Who’s At Short? For the time being Terry Collins is fully intent on going with Omar Quintanilla as his everyday shortstop. “I’ve yet to see why Omar Quintanilla should lose his job. All he does is make plays […]
Eric Young Jr. delivered a walk-off two-run homer against Luis Mendoza to beat the Royals 4-2 as the Mets snapped Kansas City’s nine-game winning streak. Young produced his first homer as a Met. It was the first walk-off hit of Young’s career and the third walk-off homer by a Met this season, joining Jordany Valdespin against the Dodgers on April 25 and Kirk Nieuwenhuis against the Cubs on June 16. “I think it was big,” […]
