Why The Mets Need To Sign Drew

2013 was a lost year for Mets starting shortstop Ruben Tejada. He missed significant time due to injuries, and he struggled to produce when he was on the field. In 208 at bats last season, he hit just .202 with no home runs and a .259 on base percentage. While I believe Tejada is a […]

Daniel Murphy Can Be The Key To Improved Run Production

The New York Mets ranked eleventh out of fifteen National league teams in runs scored with 619.  Ironically enough, they also ranked eleventh in home runs.  Hitting the long ball has been a struggle the past few seasons for players not named David Wright.  Some may point to David’s 18 home runs last season as […]

Sandy Alderson Unfazed By Hitters’ High Strikeout Totals

We just wrapped up a Q & A with Mets GM Sandy Alderson, and I asked him to address the number of high strikeout players the new lineup seems to have.

I’d Be Fine With Giving Ruben Tejada Another Chance – And A Short Leash

I know I am in the the minority on this, but I would have no objection to giving Ruben Tejada one more shot. Huh? But why, oh why? Because I still think he can be a decent player. Ruben is never going to be Jose Reyes. He is never going to be a superstar. He […]

MMO Fan Shot: Time For Mets To Be Bold And Sign Robinson Cano

A Fan Shot By Austin Smith With all the huge offseason moves thus far, most notably, Jacoby Ellsbury signing with the Yankees for 7 years and more than $150 million, should the Mets make a huge splash and sign the best free agent on the market in Robinson Cano? With the offseason in full swing […]

Josh Satin – Cleanup Hitter

Call me crazy, but I’d like to see Josh Satin hitting cleanup. I think he can hit and be very productive on the Major League level. Yes, he took several years to make it to the majors, but let’s also not forget that his path to the bigs was blocked by David Wright at third […]

Discipline vs. Patience and The Mets’ Offensive Philosophy

The terms “discipline at the plate” and “patience at the plate” come up quite often when discussing hitters’ approaches at the plate—especially if you are a Mets fan. This notion that the organization is teaching their hitters to be more patient is a questionable one to say the least. The two terms sound like they […]

It’s only been six games for Juan Lagares who is working on his bat in the Dominican Winter League, but so far the early results have been incredible for the young center fielder. Last night, Lagares went 3-for-4 with two RBI and two stolen bases to raise his average to .375 for the season with […]
