Hits & Misses: Murphy’s Future Role, When Defense Matters Most, Capping Innings Is A Good Thing

Someone asked me today if we should just go ahead and send Daniel Murphy to the bench in a super utility type role. “Of course”. I responded. Looking at how far his defense has been regressing and how inconsistent his bat has been, it’s no big secret how this movie is going to end. Once […]

Contending in 2014 with Three Off-Season Acquisitions.

Umpires, Dodgers Take Down The Mets In Frustrating 4-2 Loss

Let’s start with the good — Wilmer Flores looked pretty damn good out there again. Flores scored in the second inning […]

The Mets’ Second Half Push Will Be Worth Watching

Coming into 2013, we as Mets fans had high hopes for a better season, but I really don’t think we anticipated such a drop in the first half.  But I can honestly say that I believe the team just needed to find its make up.  Which players were going to make the biggest impact? Early […]
