Mets Starting Lineup Ruben Tejada – SS Daniel Murphy – 2B David Wright – 3B John Buck – C Marlon Byrd – RF Lucas Duda – LF Justin Turner – 1B Collin Cowgill – CF Jonathon Niese – LHP Game Notes The Mets lead the National League, averaging 5.82 runs per game, narrowly ahead of the Colorado Rockies (5.78). Imagine if we had a legitimate backend of the rotation? We’d have at least 11-12 wins with that kind of run support. (Joe D.) Juan Lagares, who was promoted to the Mets from Triple-A Las Vegas today, will be available and wear Uniform No. 12 which was last worn by Scott Hairston. Wally Backman has always spoken highly of Juan Lagares who has a .282 minor league average. (Joe D.) The Aaron Laffey era is officially over as he was claimed by the Toronto Blue Jays on waivers this afternoon. Laffey had a 7.20 ERA, allowing eight earned runs on 16 hits with four walks and nine strikeouts in 10 innings for the Mets. And so it goes… (Joe D.) Left-hander on the mound and Ike Davis on the ben

John Buck: From Trade Bait To Indispensable?

Several times this season John Buck’s fast start fueled speculation that with Travis d’Arnaud’s promotion the Mets might deal him at the trade deadline. After all, who doesn’t want a hot-hitting catcher who calls a crisp game behind the plate? Most every team would and that includes the Mets, who, along with Buck exceeded early expectations. BUCK: Proving very valuable. It’s...

Buck-ing the System: Taking A Look At Contact Rates

Baseball is a game of adjustments. The Mets under Dave Hudgens’ tutelage have adopted a doctrine of selectivity that emphasizes seeing lots of pitches, running up pitch-counts, zoning in on your pitch, and ultimately getting on base one way or another. There has been a lot of discussion on MMO about whether this approach is effective. The consensus, bolstered by a pile of data...

John worth a Buck to the Mets

If you were asked to close your eyes and I told you the following numbers 7 home runs 22 RBIs 290 Average 303 on base percentage and a 661 slugging percentage and said who on the Mets has those numbers you think maybe David Wright? John Buck would not come to mind, yet those are his numbers so far this season on April 23,2013. Buck is supposed to be the stop gap catcher until Travis...

The Buck Stops Here: Mets Take The Series With 2-0 Win Over Nats

The New York Mets (9-8) bounced back from a disappointing 7-6 loss to the Washington Nationals on Saturday, and took the series with a convincing 2-0 win this afternoon at Citi Field. The team is once again, a game over .500 for the year. Dillon Gee bounced back from a couple of brutal starts and tossed 5.2 innings, allowing just three hits and three walks while striking out six...

Mets 2, Nationals 0

John Buck hit his seventh home run of the season, Dillon Gee earned his first win and the New York Mets beat the Washington Nationals 2-0 on Sunday to take two of three games from the NL East champions. Coming off a pair of poor starts, Gee (1-3) pitched three-hit ball for 5 2-3 innings and New York finally got a strong effort from its struggling bullpen, which entered with the...

Pie In The Face Was A Cheap Shot, Valdespin’s Teammates Owe Him An Apology

What was supposed to be a thrilling night after a dramatic walk-off win courtesy of a Jordany Valdespin grand slam has turned into an evening of anger and confusion. What the hell was the deal with that pie to the face by John Buck? Check out this GIF courtesy of @MetsKevin11 on Twiitter: That was messed up. It wasn’t just a pie to the face, it was more like an F-U Kid...

Parnell and the pen come up big for Mets

The New York Mets took the rubber game against the Washington Nationals Sunday afternoon en route to their third straight home series win of the season.  John Buck did what John Buck does, mash home runs (never really thought I’d be saying that).  His seventh homer of the year came in the second inning and was really all the offense the pitching staff would need.  The dinger...
