We Developed The Pitching, Now It’s Time To Buy The Bats

You don’t need me to tell you that pitching is what wins in baseball these days. However, the extent that pitching dominates the game may come as a bit of a surprise. The top-10 pitching staffs in terms of team ERA finished with an average record of 92-70 while the teams at the bottom combined […]

How Has Dave Hudgens Impacted The Mets’ Hitting Results?

Hodges14 asks… Exactly what does a hitting coach get judged by? How do you measure whether or not he’s doing an effective job? I would think it’s things like improving the team’s overall batting average and reducing strikeouts, so why is Dave Hudgens coming back? There’s a better case to be made for firing Hudgens […]

Featured Post: The Mets Have A Duda Dilemma

Lucas Duda frustrates the hell out of me. I know he’s a saber and front office darling by virtue of his .352 on-base, but he’s an awful hitter whose getting worse at the plate instead of better. Honestly, I couldn’t care less about how many walks our clean-up hitter has, I want to see him […]

This Day In Mets Infamy With Rusty: Root For The Mole, Not The Cardinals Edition

Before the post season started, a few people asked me which two teams I predicted would meet in the World Series. I calmly responded that I hoped it would come down to the Pirates and the Athletics. Well as we know predictions are like opinions – everybody has one, and of course mine were wrong. So now […]

Death.  Taxes.  Beltran.

Some people live for the big game.  Joe Montana saved his best efforts for the many NFC Championship Games and Super Bowls he won.  Michael Jordan was excellent at sinking clutch shots and the spirits of opposing teams in his six NBA Finals victories.  (I’m a Utah Jazz fan.  I should know.)  And then there’s […]

Hits & Misses: Tron Has Become Mythical, Chasing Unicorns, Fix My Team

Last night, Carlos Beltran continued to cement his status as one of the greatest post season players of all time with yet another incredible performance. Having already delivered a two-run double to tie Game 1 of the NLCS at 2-2, the former Met would hit a walk-off single in the bottom of the 13th inning to […]

During our chat session last night, one of our participants (William Li) asked us about three buy-low candidates for the Mets: Josh Reddick, Dee Gordon, and Didi Gregorius. Christina and I were on opposite ends of the spectrum, as she ranked her level of interest in the players as Reddick > Gregorius > Gordon. It […]

2013 Season Review: Daniel Murphy, 2B

DANIEL MURPHY, 2B PRESEASON EXPECTATIONS As often has been the case with Daniel Murphy, expectations were moderate at best. If given the chance, the Mets would have replaced him, but with more pressing needs they spent their limited resources elsewhere so Murphy remained in the lineup. After several years of searching for a position, Murphy […]
