2013 MLB Draft: Will Mets Go College or High School With First Pick?

This rebuilding process seems to be dragging on too long. Do you think the Mets will go with young high school players again in June with their first round pick? I feel as though we desperately need some near MLB ready college bats and can’t afford to use our top pick on another player who […]

Time To Bring Quintanilla Up And Send Tejada Down

Potentially lost among the exciting and unlikely 2-1 walk-off victory against the Yankees was the unsightly performance of shortstop Ruben Tejada. His sub-par season has been generally overlooked due to the even more significant woes of slumping power hitter Ike Davis, however with veteran Omar Quintanilla tearing the cover off the ball, the time has […]

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 […]

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 […]
