Is Elvis Andrus An Option For The Mets This Winter?

With Mets minor league pitchers turning in many outstanding performances last week, it was difficult to decide who would be this week’s MMN pitcher of the week. Rafael Montero posted a terrific 1.20 ERA in 15 innings pitched for Las Vegas while Jacob Lugo, who flew under the radar for most of the season, dazzled in two starts […]

Harvey Lacked Command Of His Off-Speed Pitches Against The Dodgers

Matt Harvey is in the midst of a spectacular season, his first full one in the major leagues. But as he showed on Tuesday night against the Dodgers, even he is susceptible to an occasional hiccup now and then. The Mets’ ace lacked command of his off-speed pitches and the Dodgers made him pay by […]

Hits & Misses: Murphy’s Future Role, When Defense Matters Most, Capping Innings Is A Good Thing

Someone asked me today if we should just go ahead and send Daniel Murphy to the bench in a super utility type role. “Of course”. I responded. Looking at how far his defense has been regressing and how inconsistent his bat has been, it’s no big secret how this movie is going to end. Once […]

Featured Post: Harvey vs Wheeler After Ten Starts

As Zack Wheeler wrapped up the 10th start of his young and promising career on Saturday night, I was all set to compare his first ten against Matt Harvey‘s until I saw the incredible job that Brian Joura did over at Mets 360. Rather than churn out 500 words to basically say the same thing, […]

Umpires, Dodgers Take Down The Mets In Frustrating 4-2 Loss
