We all know the deal by now: Juan Lagares is pretty good in the outfield. No, scratch that — he’s probably the best defensive center fielder I have seen on the Mets since Carlos Beltran. He takes great routes to balls, accelerates with ease, and packs a cannon for an arm. He’s always been touted as a potential prospect in the Mets system and the guys here at MMO have always liked him as well. […]
YES!!! Mets righthander Dillon Gee credits his improved performance to his defense because he doesn’t have to be afraid to pitch to contact, he especially singles out Juan Lagares. “It gives you confidence to keep attacking because you know you’ve got guys out there that are playing hard and making all the plays for you,” Gee said. ”Juan tracks down everything out there in centerfield. It helps having that. Other than that, I’m throwing the ball […]
The AL affiliates of the New York-Penn League defeated the NL affiliates (including the Brooklyn Cyclones) 4-3 in the 2013 All-Star Game played in Norwich, Conn. The NL took a 3-2 lead into the bottom of the ninth, but it was Cyclones’ closer John Mincone that wound up with the blown save and the loss. He gave up a leadoff homer in the inning that tied the game and then allowed an unearned run to […]
I think I’m going to have to step back from Mets Twitter for awhile. I see things flash across my timeline that just make me want to unplug my monitor and blast it to smithereens. After responding to one Mets blogger who remarked that Juan Lagares had a terrible arm after that baseball skipped by Wilmer Flores last night, I needed to school him on why he was totally wrong. It is because of Lagares’ arm, that […]
In a major blow to an already battered roster, the Mets lost their closer, Bobby Parnell, and relief pitcher Josh Edgin to injury within one week of each other. With the later addition of all-star third baseman David Wright to the disabled list, the Mets appeared to be on the brink of destruction. What else would you expect? A team that fails to play .500 ball when completely healthy was playing without one of their top […]
People fear what they do not understand. There’s no way to deny that. The truth is, baseball is still a game where people continue to hold on to “the way things used to be” in their hearts. It’s why there is no full replay yet, it’s why people are against the DH in the NL even though the NL is at a disadvantage during the regular season or AL during the World Series… or why […]
The All Star voting is now over and all Met fans can do now is wait with baited breath to see if David Wright maintained his lead over Pablo Sandoval for the privilege to start at third base in the 2013 All Star Game at Citi Field. In an official release by MLB, the voting for the National League’s starting third baseman was called the closest and tightest battle on this year’s ballot. With all […]

1964 was a bustling time in our nation’s history. With America still reeling from the shock of our president being assassinated on the streets of Dallas, we were under invasion by a group of four long haired lads from Liverpool. New President Lyndon Johnson declared a ‘War on Poverty.’ Average annual income in America was $6000, a new house cost $13,000, a new car $3500. For $1.25 you could purchase a movie ticket, for $4.50 you […]
