Although the New York Mets closed the first half on an up-note, it’s too soon to say they have turned things around. The wildcard would take a near historic run, but .500 is not out of the question. On this date in 1973, a year they went to the World Series, they were 40-50, so there is precedence. No, I have not forgotten that team had Tom Seaver and Jerry Koosman, but the rest of the team weren’t […]
Here are a couple of Mets injury updates… There is still no timetable for left fielder Lucas Duda (intercostal strain) returning to the big-league team. Last week, Terry Collins said that he was progressing much slower than the team initially anticipated and that he could be out until late July. That would seem like an optimistic projection now and there’s a chance he won’t return until August. Compounding the issue will be where Duda plays […]
With the New York Mets (41-50) about to embark on the second half of the the 2013 season, I hit up two dozen of our MMO writers for their overall grades by position for our Mid-Season Report Cards. For added measure we also included Terry Collins, Sandy Alderson and Mr. Met who was the only one to score an A+. So without further ado, here’s our 2013 Mid-Season Mets Report Cards. Terry Collins C- TC […]
I asked some of our writers what they felt were the Best and Worst moments for the Mets in the first half, and it looks like the consensus for the best was when we swept the Yankees and the Empire State Building was brightly lit up in Blue and Orange. Daniel Nelson Best Moment: I’d have to say sweeping the Yankees in four games was pretty special. You hang onto moments like that when you […]
Sandy Alderson is happy that tings have gotten better and credits Eric Young Jr. for part of the turnaround. He had his eye on him for a while and felt fortunate when he was placed on waivers and that he happened to have someone on waivers too, so he called the Rockies and it clicked. Alderson spoke to Mike Francesa yesterday and they had a substantial discussion on a variety of topics. I broke it […]
This mailbag question comes from Alex: Anyone watching this team would notice that we are in dire need of a shortstop. With no one in the minors close to the majors, and Tejada and Quintanilla not getting the job done, are there any quality shortstops that the Mets can realistically acquire? Alex is right about what we have now. While I wouldn’t be so quick to give up on the 23 year-old Ruben Tejada (I […]
Last night, just before the game, Mark Simon tweeted that in the last 30 days, the Mets led MLB with 90 Good Fielding Plays. Not surprising to see David Wright and Omar Quintanilla leading the pack here… The Mets had a rough start to the season defensively. The usually reliable Ike Davis was taking his slump to the field with him, Ruben Tejada was more erratic then ever, and Collin Cowgill and Lucas Duda didn’t […]
For the first six weeks or so of the 2013 season, everything was going right for Daniel Murphy. After countless position changes, multiple injuries and a great deal of hard work and dedication, he was finally coming into his own both offensively and in field at second; and then came June. After fluttering around .300 with some significant pop, Murphy’s performance took a nose-dive. Since June 1st, Murphy has batted .222/.265/.302, amounting to a cringe-worthy […]
As the non-waiver trade deadline draws nearer, the Mets find themselves in what’s normally a seller’s situation. They are ten games under .500 and eleven games out of the second Wild Card spot. However, with 2014 being the year everything is supposed to start coming together, what with (presumably) plenty of money to spend and the top two starters both on the major league roster, the Mets can afford to add pieces via trade that […]
