Opening Day lineup had Mike Jacobs playing first and hitting clean up. Mets final game against the Rockies had Fernando Tatis playing first and batting fifth. Combined Jacobs and Tatis are 7/36 (.194), 1 home run, 5 RBIs with 10 strikeouts. Not exactly what the Mets want from their “power and clutch hitting” first basemen. And we still have plenty of time left before Daniel Murphy is inevitably the first baseman for the Mets. However, […]
First I would like to thank Sach for bringing this to my attention. Back in 2008 the Mets were desperate to shake up the lineup and get guys to play harder. They decided to bring up the young first baseman Nick Evans. He was dominating in AA and got the call to play left field for the Mets to replace the injured Marlon Anderson. In Evans’ first career at bat, he doubled off Colorado Rockies […]
MMO has learned that first baseman Nick Evans will be one of several Mets that will be playing winter ball this off season. David Ponte met up with Evans this past weekend and asked him what his plans were for the off season. Q- What positives if any can you take from this season? A – I think it’s definitely a good learning experience for everybody to go through struggles like this. Hopefully we […]
With two roster spots open after Wagner was dealt to the Red Sox earlier today and Santana having season ending surgery, Mets have recalled up LF Nick Evans and LHP Pat Misch. Nick Evans played for the Mets earlier this season after Fernando Martinez got injured. Nick Evans is batting .250 with 1 homerun and 6 RBIs. Pat Misch was recently sent down after activating Wagner, but will be called back up. Misch has a […]
The Mets made a couple of moves today. First, they claimed veteran infielder Angel Berroa off waivers from the Yankees and assigned him to AAA Buffalo. Berroa, the 2003 AL Rookie of the Year, had been designated for assignment by the Yankees on June 24 after hitting just .136 with one double and one RBI in 21 games this season. Also, the Mets assigned Nick Evans to Buffalo this afternoon to create roster space for Jeff Francoeur. Speaking […]
Sometimes desperate times make us think desperate thoughts. Last night as I watched Johan Santana serve up a change-up to Ryan Braun that, frankly, I could have hit, and then watch the ball and a bunch of Brewers bounce all over the field and across the plate four times, my disbelief turned into realism. I started to think, is Santana the ace he was in April and May or is this worst stretch of his […]
Alright, so I was going to say “I hope everyone’s having a good day”, but watching K-rod walk Mariano last night has sucked the life out of me. I wasn’t favoring the umpire’s strike zone last night, or the ESPN announcers…but that’s not what I’m writing about. I do hope everyone’s having a good day, and I hope you’ll enjoy keeping track of this. The MetsMerized Player of the Week is an old feature that […]
What a game my friends! The Mets showed some fight, some heart, and some grit… Call it whatever you want, but they played some of the best baseball of the season in taking three games out of four against the St. Louis Cardinals. In today’s finale, they touched up Cardinals ace, Chris Carpenter for three runs thanks to a two-run double by Nick Evans who comes through again in the clutch. Manuel put Evans in the […]
Nick Evans has been called the first baseman of the future for the New York Mets and has been considered the heir apparent to Carlos Delgado. The Mets may have to rethink all of that in light of the tremendous struggles Evans is experiencing at AAA – Buffalo. In 75 at-bats for the Bisons, Evans is batting an abysmal .093 with just 7 hits this season. Three of those hits are homeruns, but that’s no […]
