“IT’S OUTTA HERE, A Grand Slam from Valdespin to win the ballgame”, call courtesy of Gary Cohen. The more and more I watch Jordany Valdespin play, the more I like him. Yeah I know, he isn’t in the plans and he is not liked. What is not to like, I mean, he has speed, yes that has been noted, he can play the outfield, yes that has also been noted, and he has a flair for the […]
Last night, in the Mets 7-2 loss to the Dodgers, Juan Lagares entered the game in the top of the fifth inning to play center field as part of a double-switch – officially marking his major league debut. Lagares led off in the bottom half of the fifth with a hard hit fly to the warning track in left field against Dodgers’ ace LHP Clayton Kershaw. In his next at-bat, Lagares singled against left-hander Paco Rodriguez in […]
I thought about the first three spots in the Mets lineup. While the two and three holes seem locked by Daniel Murphy and David Wright respectively, the leadoff spot has been somewhat of a revolving door. Here is the list of starts in the leadoff spot with Murphy and Wright at No. 2 and 3: Collin Cowgill – 6 Jordany Valdespin – 6 Mike Baxter – 1 Kirk Nieuwenhuis – 1 Justin Turner – 1 […]
Mike Puma of the New York Post, reports that Terry Collins was yelled at five times a day by general manager Sandy Alderson regarding the team’s approach during Spring Training, according to a team source. Alderson insisted that the team had to show the kind of selectivity at the plate that has been a hallmark of the general manager’s career. As a result, the Mets are seeing 156.11 pitches per game in 2013, up from […]
Yesterday, Adam Rubin of ESPN New York reported that the Mets decided to send Omar Quintanilla to Triple-A Vegas to start the season so they could minimize the risk of losing him to waivers early in the season. Quintanilla is not currently on the 40-man roster. Collins said the Mets were wary of carrying Quintanilla out of spring training in part because if they ever needed to free a spot on the major league roster and Quintanilla was the […]
June is approaching mighty fast, and with it is the wonder, buzz, and speculation of players that could be selected in the first round of the 2013 First Year Player Draft. This year, we have figured to have a large organizational need, and that is in the outfield. The Mets are stocked high and mighty on pitchers, have drafted and signed their share of hitters up the middle (catchers and middle infielders), and have a […]
Guess who’s jazzed about the Mets so far? This guy is. The Mets won the first two series of the season 2-1 against the Padres and the Marlins—including a furious 9th-inning rally yesterday. Maybe not the most stellar competition, but the team has shown the range of its capabilities. In the first couple games, the Mets’ offense exerted its dominance as well as its starting pitching. In the latest win, the bullpen was solid and […]
I will remember it as if I saw it yesterday for the first time. A sheet of notebook paper, with the words, “Know your place, Rook … signed, your teammates,” was taped over Lastings Milledge’s locker in the Mets’ clubhouse in old RFK Stadium. This, in the late summer in 2006. The Mets were en route to the playoffs and a veteran laden team was rubbed the wrong way by Milledge’s brashness and arrogance. Then-manager […]
First off, I’d like to start this post by congratulating Collin Cowgill. The man had a great Spring Training and a smashing Mets debut. He deserves to be a part of the Mets outfield in 2013. I look forward to watching him. “It’s a special day. My first time being in an Opening Day lineup. A lot of jitters but it’s exciting. The fans were unbelievable. Beautiful day for that,” Cowgill said. “It was an […]
