Liam Hendriks could make sense as an in-season target

There has been a lot of chatter recently about the prospect of Brandon Woodruff signing with a team this offseason for a two-year deal, with the aim of spending the 2024 season rehabbing from his anterior capsule injury and making his return to the mound in 2025. Why wouldn’t there be? He’s been a terrific [...]

Looking back at Brodie Van Wagenen’s tenure with the Mets

Now that Billy Eppler is gone, and has etched his name into forgettable Mets lore, it might be just the perfect time to evaluate Brodie Van Wagenen’s performance as General Manager from October 2018 through November 2020. Yes, you read that right. While it is easy to judge a general manager in the immediate wake [...]

Brett Baty might force the Mets’ hand at third base

Following a productive trade deadline in which the Mets offloaded the likes of Justin Verlander and Max Scherzer, the Mets now have a minor league system that is bursting at the seams with talent.

Can May struggles bring October successes?

With two outs in the bottom of the ninth, two men on base, and trailing the Tampa Bay Rays, Francisco Alvarez reignited the hope for the so-far 2023 disappointing season for the New York Mets.

Even with slow spring start, Pham will be a solid 4th outfielder

Now that it seems like the shock of losing Edwin Diaz for the 2023 season has settled, it is time to accept and move on.
