This Day In Mets Infamy With Rusty: The “What If” Edition

Warning !!  What you are about to see is an exercise in futility. What if Johan Santana didn’t blow out his surgically repaired shoulder again during Spring Training ? What if Shaun Marcum pitched anywhere near the numbers on the back of his baseball card ? What if Matt Harvey didn’t injure his elbow – […]

Duda Says He’s Done Enough For Everyday Job, But Does Sandy Share His Opinion?

Lucas Duda fully understands the lay of the land in Flushing these days, and knows his hold on an everyday job at first base in 2014 is tenuous at best.
