Cespedes has a 178 wRC+ which ranks No. 1 in MLB When Yoenis Cespedes re-signed with the New York Mets this off-season, fans were elated. Even if it’s just for one season, (Cespedes has the opt-out after 2016) the Mets finally have a legitimate power bat to hit in the middle of the lineup, something […]

B-Mets Ace Robert Gsellman Keeps Dealing Despite Lack Of Run Support

It’s sometimes part and parcel with becoming a pitching ace. Throughout the ages, New York Met pitching aces have learned to survive and even thrive with little to no run support. Many a time a starting pitcher has to carefully navigate through a game knowing that the outcome might unravel based on the results of […]

How Strasburg Deal Impacts Harvey

Watching Stephen Strasburg pitch on Monday night, part of the Monday Night Baseball telecast on ESPN, he wasn’t as sharp against the Detroit Tigers as he had been against his previous two opponents, the Kansas City Royals and the St. Louis Cardinals.

West Coast Trips Exacerbate Obsession

My addiction is permeating everyone in my home.  We are becoming consumed by this team, and I love it. Last I remember, Steven Matz had just slashed a double down the right field line and Dave Roberts took the ball from Scott Kazmir.  Next thing I know, I wake up to Geico Sportsnight on SNY. […]

Do The Mets Have a Catching Problem?

Is this situation from 2015 or 2016?  Travis d’Arnaud suffers an injury that is going to keep him on the DL for an extended period of time. The Mets then turn to Kevin Plawecki, who just doesn’t hit. It’s like Groundhog Day except no one is laughing. When d’Arnaud is on the field, he’s a terrific catcher. […]

Harvey Was Cruising, Then It All Fell Apart

Tough loss on Saturday. I say that because when the Mets hit three home runs, score five runs, and Matt Harvey is on the mound I expect the team to win. Especially when Harvey retired the first 13 Cleveland batters he faced. Unfortunately for the Mets they took a hard luck 7-5 loss to drop […]
