Terry Collins had some high praise for Eric Young Jr. yesterday, in a conversation with the New York Post. “The energy level has been raised since we got E.Y. and called up some guys from the minor leagues,” Collins said. “Andres Torres did a nice job last year when he wasn’t hurt, but certainly this year Young has made a big difference in our lineup.” And even right fielder Marlon Byrd is happy to have Young […]
John Buck wen’t 0-for-4 in last night’s win over the White Sox at U.S. Cellular Field. He struck out all four time to earn the dreaded Golden Sombrero. In my recap of the 3-0 win, I mentioned that it may be time to start giving Anthony Recker a few more starts – not so much because he’s that much better than Buck, I couldn’t honestly say that. But it would be good to find out exactly what […]
Updated by Joe D. 6/10 Adam Rubin reports: Seven weeks after fracturing his left foot, it looks like Travis d’Arnaud finally can shed the protective boot. Otherwise, this is a very odd tweet … I can start buying left shoes again!! — Travis d'arnaud (@Travisdarnaud) June 10, 2013 “I’m all smiles’” he added… Updated by Satish on 6/3 The Mets official press release stated that d’Arnaud will remain in the boot for a week. […]
Byrd’s the word these days for the Mets, as their veteran offseason signing continues to produce at a level far beyond what anyone expected. Last night, Marlon Byrd struck again and this time he hit not one, but two home runs in the Mets 10-1 rout of the Washington Nationals. Better still was the fact that Byrd predicted he’d hit two homers before the game during batting practice according to the New York Post: “I was […]
Daniel Murphy’s college coach called him Joe Lunchpail; a blue collar guy who, for his age, “… knows as much about hitting as anybody out there,” said Terry Alexander, Jacksonville University Dolphins. “He wants to take it to a science.” Murphy hit .317 during the month of May, including 10 doubles. He is second in the league in two-base hits. New York Post beat writer Mike Puma adds this impressive stat: Murphy had 12 two-out […]
Updated by HoJo on 5/25 Hitting coach Count Dave Hudgens continues to voice his strong opinion that the Mets need to stick with Ike Davis and not send him to Triple-A Las Vegas according to a report in the New York Post. “I don’t even want to think about it, to be honest with you,” the Mets hitting coach told The Post yesterday before Davis went 0-for-4 with four strikeouts in the Mets’ 5-5 suspended […]
As of now, Terry Collins’ job is safe and deservedly so. Based on getting the most out of what he has been given and basic fairness, there’s nothing justifying Collins’ job being in question. However, fairness is irrelevant in sports. A manager’s job security always becomes an issue when he has lame duck contractual status and his team has lost six straight games.Losing streaks get everybody edgy, with questions directed to management, in this case, GM Sandy […]
Updated on 4/18 by Joe D. And right on cue, in his column for the New York Post, Joel Sherman says that injuries to D’Arnaud’s back, knee and now foot could suggest that he is “injury-prone.” Let us also remember the ticking clock does not stop. D’Arnaud is no baby,” Sherman writes. “He is 24 — six months older than Jason Heyward. The Mets’ best-laid plans had D’Arnaud and Zack Wheeler breaking in this year and […]
Josh Kosman of the NY Post is reporting that the Mets won’t have much money to play with this season and are expecting to lose more than $10 million this year as well as suffering a fifth straight year of declining attendance. “There is little room this year to raise salaries,” said a source familiar with the team’s finances told the Post. Last week, principal owner Fred Wilpon told reporters that the Mets’ money woes were over […]
