Scout Says No Way Flores Can Play Any Position But First Base

As the Mets wait through a second rain delay and the score tied at 5-5 against the Braves, Ike Davis looked worse than ever tonight at Citi Field. The slumping first baseman is 0-4 with four strikeouts as they wait for the rain to stop. This has become unbearable. Meanwhile, Adam Rubin of ESPN New York […]

Is Ike Davis Really Mike Jacobs Reincarnated?

It always is interesting how people automatically call a hitter that hits homers, strikes out a lot and has a low average “Dave Kingman.” Kong certainly had his issues, but regardless of what you think he still had a 16-year career in which he hit 442 homers. To say that Ike Davis is Kingman would […]

Choo Could Be Impact Outfielder For Mets In 2014, But Would Cost A Pick

Updated Post 1:44 PM MLB Trade Rumors just posted something that would add to the debate on Choo as a potential acquisition for the Mets in 2014.

Power Prospect Cory Vaughn Is On A Mission

Despite a major league pedigree and respect for his tools (Baseball America Top 15 organizational prospect three years running), Binghamton Mets outfielder Cory Vaughn had yet to put all his tools together. His power and speed didn’t show up until 2012, but he hit .243. In St. Lucie in 2011, Vaughn hit .286 before his promotion, but only four […]

What Do We Have In Lucas Duda And Is He The Solution At Left Field?

Left field has always been used as a kind of defensive dumping ground for many teams trying to find a way to get a bat in the lineup.  Not requiring the arm strength considered de rigueur for Right, and less daunting in the presence of a fleet centerfielder, it is often a place for players […]

Will Ankiel Answer The Mets Need For Their Powerless Outfield?

Are the Mets in desperate times now?  With how our offense has failed to click lately, I think so. I was under the impression that we had a few guys that could actually play the outfield for us – and then we went out and signed Rick Ankiel. I remember the player Ankiel was after he […]

Mazzoni Solid On Both Sides Of The Ball In B-Mets 9-3 Victory

Binghamton 9, Harrisburg 3 An ominous gray sky and a persistent drizzle dampened my spirits as I started an excursion to Binghamton’s NYSEG Stadium for the second consecutive day.  Saturday’s sojourn was for naught, nearly four hours driving in the car and no baseball.  The prospects of a double washout loomed. Halfway to Binghamton, the […]
