Bring Out The Tiger In Granderson

Tuesday night’s game really got me thinking about the future of Curtis Granderson. He played exactly how I would like to see him play moving forward. He had three hits, all of which were singles and also stole a base. The amount of pressure on Granderson’s shoulders goes beyond the $60 million dollar contract he […]

More Mets Static

It was almost miraculous. I turned on WOR coming home from watching Darin Gorski throw a masterful two-hit, complete game in Binghamton and the reception was crystal clear. Learning Jacob deGrom had left the game with a 2-0 lead I was elated. First Rafael Montero‘s 10 strikeout performance and now deGrom, both pitching like the […]

Lucas Duda and Chris Young Have Been Clogging Up The Works

The middle of the lineup, the part that is most responsible for driving in runs, has become the team’s “soft underbelly” and a “weakness” that is too often exposed, writes Kevin Kernan of the New York Post. “This all comes down to talent evaluation and the willingness to spend money,” he writes. The Mets chose […]

The Mets’ Mistake with Josh Satin

Ike Davis or Lucas Duda. Lucas Duda or Ike Davis. It took until mid-April for Sandy Alderson to finally make a decision that he was going with Lucas Duda at first base, and therefore, trading away Ike Davis. Since then, a day on Twitter can’t pass without some Mets fan tweeting the comparison numbers between […]

How About Some Offense, Please?

  According to Adam Rubin of ESPN New York, manager Terry Collins suggested he might give our current lineup a month — with Curtis Granderson No. 2, Daniel Murphy No. 4 and Lucas Duda No. 6 — before eventually placing Duda in the cleanup spot. “We’ve put a lot on Lucas’ plate in the past week,” Collins said about the reluctance to […]

MMO Morning Grind: The Cautionary Tale of John Buck

Good morning, Mets fans! Nice win yesterday! We’re over 500. Can we get to 90? Time will tell. Anyway, we’ve reached the point in the season where we can start to throw around terms like “good start” and “bad start” for certain players. But stats at this point in the season can still be incredibly […]

Duda is Mashing the Ball, Will Not Play in the Outfield

After sustaining injuries to Juan Lagares and Curtis Granderson on Monday night, Terry Collins said on Tuesday that he is not planning to use Lucas Duda in the outfield moving forward. “We made the commitment to play him there,” Collins said about Duda playing only first base. “I think putting him back in left field will take away […]
