TEAMS: New York Mets

I’m a little backed up here, and I know you all know this is old news but hey, its worth covering again. Last week when the Mets rolled into San Diego, the Padres were rolling back the clock to 1989, and the Mets joined into with their road pullovers with the plain New York script (almost Yankee-esque), and Mets race stripes. In normal MLB, Mets world order, you buy them online already:

Captain Kirk wasn’t even on the team when they wore these! Anyway, the jersey looks nice, clean and accurate. Well done Mets! It also brings the Mets count of new jerseys up to 8 (New Home, Alt, Away, BP, AS BP, AS, LosMets, 89).

Andres Torres’ big day, Mike Baxter hits .300, lefty relievers

Thursday did not figure to be a particularly good day for Andres Torres. He came into the game with a .183/.287/.239 line in 165 PA against RHP and the Marlins were throwing Josh Johnson. In his last three games, Johnson had allowed just eight hits in 19.2 innings for a .119 batting average against. But Torres came up big, going 3-for-3 with a double, triple, home run and a walk...

HYPE files: Jeurys Familia

Why the hype? Jeurys Familia, SP: Before the season started, Familia was considered one of the top three prospects in the Mets minor league systems. Coming into the season, some people ranked him higher than Matt Harvey and/or Zack Wheeler. As the season comes to an end, he has become a polarizing prospect. With a 96 MPH fastball and a biting slider, no one can argue his stuff...

Mets 2012 Season Will Be A Near Total Loss

Its hard to fathom now, but the Mets had a realistic shot at the playoffs only one month ago.  Since then the team has taken a turn for the worst with a lot of poorly played baseball compounded by additional injuries.  In the process, the current situation has re-highlighted some glaring issues that the team’s successful first half had given us the luxury of forgetting about...

Will Tejada and Murphy Be Our Middle Infield Combo Again In 2013?

Ruben Tejada ranks fourth in the majors with a .404 (19-for-47) batting average on Sundays (min. 40 at-bats). Tejada has at least one hit in 15 of his last 16 games, and is hitting .352 (25-for-71) over these 16 games. Tejada’s .321 batting average is the highest among all major league shortstops (min. 280 at-bats) and his .368 on-base percentage is the highest among all major...

An optimistic look at the 2012 Mets

Well it’s 2012 and the Mets feel like the Mets of 2011, 2010 and 2009… Looking around, I can’t see Luis Castillo, Oliver Perez, Jerry Manuel, or Omar Minaya… So, why are the Mets still the Mets and not something new and better?  Could it be Jason Bay?  Terry Collins?  Maybe it’s Jeff and Fred Wilpon and their special friend, Bernie Madoff?  Maybe we should drum...

Lucas Duda’s Met Future is at First Base, not Right Field

When the season started, the Mets were dependent on Ike Davis and Lucas Duda to provide power to the middle of their lineup and give some protection to David Wright. Both Duda and Davis have the ability to bust the game wide open with one swing of the bat and when the season started, it [...] [[ This is a content summary only.

Freeman powers Braves past Mets

NEW YORK -- With nine 100-RBI seasons to his credit, including eight in a row from 1996 through 2003, Chipper Jones knows a budding middle-of-the-order hitter when he sees one. And in teammate Freddie Freeman, Jones sees a player with the talent to take the baton from him as the Atlanta Braves' premier power hitter. Freeman finished with five RBI and hit a mammoth three-run...

Braves 9, Mets 3
