Enjoy Eric Young Jr’s great start for however long it lasts

My strong preference was for the Mets to sign Shin-Soo Choo this past offseason. However, Sandy Alderson did not want to put all of his eggs into one basket and instead spent $32.25 million on Bartolo Colon, Curtis Granderson and Chris Young. While it will be interesting to see the value the Mets get for their free agent dollars versus what Choo puts up, it will also be interesting to see at the end of…

Jenrry Mejia And The Mets’ Starters Recover At Their Favorite Spa

The Arizona Diamondbacks were established in 1998, a newly minted National League expansion team. They have had their fair share of success in a pretty short time frame, winning the NL West in only their second year of existence, winning a World Championship two years later – wrecking the Yankees’ latest dynasty in the process – and reaching the post-season three more times after that. All in the space of 17 seasons. All in all,…

Organizational Depth Spurring on Mets

New York Mets v Arizona Diamondbacks

Although sometimes not in particular pretty fashion, the New York Mets have been getting it done of late while winning eight of their last 12 games. Part of the reason for their winning ways has been the play of the bench and the call-ups they have relied on from Las Vegas. Aside from the sweep to begin the season at the hands of the Washington Nationals, the Mets have turned on the switch and have…

The future of the Mets bullpen

April 16, 2014

bullpen

It’s been a very common issue with the Mets over the past number of seasons and this year is no different. The team has good starting pitching, along with a good lineup. But it’s the bullpen that continues to worry Mets fans all over. The year didn’t start off well, as Bobby Parnell went down with an injury that required surgery and will keep him out of the 2014 season. Vic Black, their back up…

Is it time to give Travis d’Arnaud a break?

April 16, 2014
By
Travis d'Arnaud

Travis d’Arnaud is beginning to get hot, but he is still having a terrible start to his first season in the majors.  As of Wednesday morning, d’Arnaud is hitting .154 with one home run.  This does not mean that d’Arnaud should be traded or released, but the Mets do need to find a viable catcher and bench d’Arnaud for the time being. So how will the Mets get a catcher good enough to replace d’Arnaud…

Mets Card of the Week: 2014 Matt Harvey

2014 Harvey

2014 TOPPS MINI DIE-CUT MATT HARVEY Episode 7F16 of The Simpsons is a classic entry from 1991 named “Oh Brother, Where Art Thou?”– a title cribbed from Preston Sturges’ 1941 comedy Sullivan’s Travels, and later appropriated by the Coen brothers for their Depression-era riff on Homer’s “Odyssey.” In the episode, Homer (the Springfieldian one, not the ancient Greek) discovers through a cascading series of events that he has a long-lost half-brother. Herb Powell (voiced by…

Time is running out for Eric Young, Jr.

Eric Young, Jr. has been auditioning for a starting outfielder position since the 2014 season began. He was given this opportunity for two reasons; Terry Collins likes to have speed at the top of the order, and Chris Young was hurt. Young just started a rehab assignment in Las Vegas, where he promptly hit two home runs and drove in five on his way to a 5-5 night on Sunday, then added another two hits…

The Mets Appear To Be Doing It With Mirrors

NEWSFLASH: so far, the Mets’ offense stinks. As a team, they’re hitting .218, good for dead last in the National League. Team slugging percentage is .333, also 15th. As far as hits go, they again bring up the rear with 97 – and none of their pitchers has a safety as yet. Team OBP is .292, next-to-last. Their OPS+ is 72. Not 172, just 72. NEWSFALSH: overall, their pitching hasn’t been much better. The Mets’…

Mets Minors: Rafael Montero impressive in Vegas

April 14, 2014

Rafael Montero

The Mets have quite the collection of starting pitchers.  There is not much that anyone could complain about in the Las Vegas starting rotation, but it seems that Rafael Montero deserves additional praise.  Through his first three starts, he’s been the picture of an “Ace”. What Makes an “Ace”? A Low ERA – Montero’s ERA is 2.60 after 17.1 IP A Low WHIP – Montero’s WHIP is a crisp 0.87 A High K/9 – Montero’s…
