Most everything about the Mets these days is about the future. From Matt Harvey, to extending David Wright, to the trade of R.A. Dickey and protecting Zack Wheeler, we’re talking about 2014 and beyond. Sure, it would be great to compete now, but 2013 is mostly for establishing the foundation. It is the development of Harvey and Jon Niese; giving Wheeler major league experience – while avoiding free agency for a year – and hope Ike Davis and Lucas Duda improve their offensive efficiency while still producing […]
Updated by Joe D. on 4/20 What a game it was for Lucas Duda last night in the Mets 7-1 win against the Nationals. Duda had his best game ever as a Met going 2-for-3 with hit two home runs and a walk . The hulking Mets left fielder is now batting .308 for the season with five home runs and eight RBI in 14 games. Duda’s patience has paid off as Adam Rossi said it would […]
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 […]
Over their first 9 games the Mets have shown some decidedly encouraging signs, but there have also been some glaring concerns. It’s far too early to draw any real conclusions, but it isn’t too early for a first impression. The Starting Pitching Two words: Matt Harvey. Harvey has been stellar … actually more than stellar, he has been intergalactic. What has impressed me about Harvey is his poise and his fledgling ability to control the […]
One of the things I love about Twitter is how it can spontaneously erupt into a great debate and then lead into other things where you get even more insights and come away smarter than you were before you logged on. My post about MetsBlog’s poll results this morning, generated an enormous response from fans and mainstream media alike. However, that’s not what this post is about. During one of my Twitter exchanges I tossed […]
They are hot, so as Crash Davis said you don’t mess with a streak. This is not a time for the Mets to be making wholesale changes, but there are things they could consider. The Mets don’t have the multitude of power options that say, Ben & Jerry’s has ice cream choices, but Daniel Murphy appears to becoming one. Lately, he has been driving the ball for power; something I always thought he was capable […]
When the Blue Jays forced Sandy Alderson to take John Buck‘s $6 million dollar contract as a condition of making the deal for Travis d’Arnaud, many people including me groaned. I loved the fact that Buck could actually catch (unlike Josh Thole) and would be an asset overall, but six million samoans for Buck was simply too much for me to swallow. Sometimes it’s better to be lucky than good, and Alderson sure lucked out […]
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 […]
Savannah, which starts playing on Thursday, has been speculated over and over to continuously have some top talent this season, and the people who speculated these were mostly right. There are a lot of prospects to be watching on this roster, both on the hitters and pitches side. I will list them as a convenience, as well as two potential sleepers for both hitting and pitching. Starting Pitchers Matthew Bowman Gabriel Ynoa Steven Matz Rainy […]
