Eric Young said that he is preparing to play both in the outfield and second base going into his first spring training with the Mets, reports Kristie Ackert of the Daily News. Young said that no one in the Mets organization has discussed his role at second base or the outfield for 2014. He said he was approached about the possibility of starting at second in the aftermath of David Wright’s injury in August, but […]
Andrew asks… Why are you always pushing Shin-Soo Choo so much on your site? He’s just an average player cashing in on his walk year and in obvious decline. He sucks as a center fielder and I’d rather stick with Juan Lagares. Joe D. replies… Thanks for the question, but let me first correct you and say that I’m not pushing any particular player. When there is an update on a particular player who the […]
The New York Yankees are apparently targeting soon to be free agent Shin-Soo Choo, reports Jon Heyman, though outfield is not their top priority according to what multiple sources have told him. Choo was reportedly the “only” elite free agent the Mets were expected to pursue this offseason, according to what team sources said to ESPN New York’s Adam Rubin. If there was any chance that the Mets could get Choo, it probably will go by the […]
You know when I was just a teenager, I was the drummer in a band we called Andromeda. Yes, I’m aware that some Swedish band has since swiped our name, but that’s okay as I heard they were heavy metal too. I also wrote dozens of songs, mostly on the backs of napkins at 3:00 AM in the morning, while plowing through a plate of pancakes or french toast and a bottomless cup of coffee […]
(Updated) One day after Terry Collins announced that Ruben Tejada suffered a broken right fibula and would miss the remainder of the season, he challenged his shortstop to comeback next Spring focused and with some fire in his belly. “My message is real simple: this job is his,” Collins said of next year’s starting shortstop gig. “But he’s got to show everybody that he wants it desperately.” “You’ve got to say, ‘Hey look, I’m going to dedicate […]
No one said moving into first place would be easy for the Brooklyn Cyclones. But with the Abderdeen Ironbirds losing Tuesday night, the Cyclones could have moved a half game into first place had they won. It took 16 innings – the longest game of the season for Brooklyn – but the Cyclones fell 5-3 Tuesday to the Tri-City Valleycats at MCU Park. The team remains a half-game out of first place in the McNamara […]
Yesterday, after the team recalled Lucas Duda from Triple-A Las Vegas and optioned outfielder Mike Baxter back to the minors, the former everyday left fielder for the Mets was all smiles. “Anytime you’re in the big leagues everything is good,” Duda said. ”I wasn’t hitting too good in my rehab assignment, so it is what it is. I’m just glad to be back. I’m glad to be here and a part of the team. I’ll play anywhere.” […]
Newly acquired Daisuke Matsuzaka took the mound for the Amazins tonight, but unfortunately the results were far from spectacular. It didn’t take long for the Tigers to strike. On an 0-2 pitch to Torii Hunter, Matsuzaka conceded his first run as a Met, an absolute moon shot to left field. He allowed subsequent hits, but escaped relatively unscathed at 1-0. From there it only got more ugly. Marlon Byrd tied it up with a single […]
At 1:47 PM I left my house to begin the journey to NYSEG Stadium in Binghamton, NY, home of the Binghamton Mets. I arrived nearly two hours later with over two hours to spare until the gates opened. I used this time to tour the campus of SUNY Binghamton University, my mother’s alma mater, and to sit down for a late lunch/early dinner meal at the Lost Dog Cafe. If you’re in the area, check […]
