Collins Preaches Patience For d’Arnaud, Ojeda Disagrees And Says He’s Lost

“He has no idea what he’s doing up there. He has no idea what pitch is coming, where it’s going, and what he’s going to do with it.

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 […]

As I had speculated last week (and hoped for), Zack Wheeler has indeed turned a corner and is making his presence felt in the National League with each passing start.

Double-D Getting Opportunity To Show His Stuff

At NYSEG Stadium in Binghamton we called him Double-D. After Matt den Dekker joined the Mets Double-A roster, it didn’t take long for a B-Met mainstay, a fan who dutifully mans a seat behind home plate a nudge to the third base side, to shout out, “Come on Double-D, hit it hard somewhere,” when den […]
