Doesn’t he expect it by now? — Jeremy Stephner (@whutyearisit) April 10, 2013 JV had two pretty good jumps with Wright at the plate. Kratz went Benito Santiago on him and gunned him out at 2nd on the SB attempt. #Mets — Michael Baron (@michaelgbaron) April 10, 2013 Great second effort by Tejada way to not give up on the play — Ty (@tysim19) April 10, 2013 SURPRISE ******* WE CAN GET YOU GUYS OUT AT SECOND TOO — Jill Norlander (@callyschknparm) April 10, 2013 Mike Baxter is nothing more than a bench player.

That was a fly ball. — Matthew Janik (@MattJanik) April 11, 2013 Let’s use the whole bullpen today! — Tom (@TheNotoriousENT) April 11, 2013 I like Terry usually, but he used the only infielder on the bench in the top of the 4th, and will have no lefties in the pen come the 7th. — Mark Ethe (@TooGooden16) April 11, 2013 That’s three infield hits tonight for Valdespin. Something, something running hard something. — Andrew Vazzano (@AVSNY) April 11, 2013 So after 9 games it’s pretty safe to say that David Wright’s extension is the worst move in team history.

Roundtable: What do you make of John Buck’s start?

Matt Harvey’s been dominant, Lucas Duda has been selective and powerful but beyond a shadow of a doubt the best story so far for the 2013 Mets is that of John Buck.  So, I asked friends in the blogosphere the following question: What do you make of John Buck’s start?  Is this a brief hot stretch like Rod Barajas in 2010 or is it something else? These people all do great...

What the heck has gotten into John Buck?

And the streak continues! For the ninth straight game (hey, maybe I was onto something) to open the season the Mets have hit at least one home run, a streak that is now a new record while besting the 87 squad. Surprisingly leading the charge is the “throw in” in the R.A. Dickey trade, John Buck. To say that Buck is hot would be a massive understatement. Buck has been everything...

Obligatory John Buck What If Post: Keep Him Or Trade Him At The Deadline?

This is the T-Shirt Tuesday design for the April 23 game against the Los Angeles Dodgers, honoring Mets catcher John Buck. It bears a striking resemblance to Blitzen. In 31 plate appearances so far this season, Buck is batting .393/.387/.464 with four home runs and an NL leading 14 RBIs in eight games. Buck did not hit his fourth home run of the year last year until May 13 (25 games...

Valdespin Heads Tonight’s Mets Lineup

VALDESPIN: Earn’s a start after a tripling and scoring on Tuesday. The Mets will attempt to win their third consecutive series tonight in Philadelphia, but the match-up of starter Jeremy Hefner against the Phillies is not a good one for them. Hefner took the loss in his last start against Miami, but gave the Mets a good effort, giving up a run in six innings. It was a quality start...

Mets Should Consider Mike Baxter At Leadoff

Six games into the season and the Mets have used three different leadoff hitters. Evidently, there are answers to be found. One who should get a longer look is Mike Baxter, who started Saturday and reached base three times on two hits and a walk. A lead off hitter needs to get on base, and if not then take the count as deep as possible to give the following hitters a chance to...

Who’s to Blame for Boneheaded Loss: Valdespin, Murphy, or …. ?

TweetIn case you missed it yesterday, the Mets lost again to the Phillies in Philly by a 7-3 score, but just about everyone is still talking about the boneheaded play that occurred in the fifth inning with the Mets still somewhat in the game. With one out in the fifth and the Mets trailing 5-2 at the time, the Mets had runners on second and third with one out due to Jordany Valdespin’s...

This Maddening Season: Jeremy Hefner, Daniel Murphy, Jordany Valdespin and Aaron Laffey

Let’s say a MLB team is not expected to compete much in its division. They’re short on talent, been known to have money troubles and have been having difficulty attracting fans to its ballpark. Let’s say most pundits have picked them to finish no better than fourth – and only because the team that’s projected to finish fifth can scarcely be called a “major league...

Dear #MetsTwitter, JV1 is NOT Jose Reyes

*Photo Courtesy of  The 7 Line* The Dominican Republic has become the hotbed of  international talent for Major League Baseball.  Some of today’s brightest stars are from there, and that was on full display at this year’s World Baseball Classic as the Dominicans used “Plantain Power” to take home the championship. Much of the discussion during and following the tournament...

This Mets Team Can’t Afford Mental Mistakes

I cringed as Domonic Brown’s three-run home run in the bottom of the first inning disappeared deep into the stands at Citizens Bank Park last night. Phillies 5, Mets 0 before we even blinked. But then I realized that Citizens Bank Park is band box, and one or two big swings would get the Mets right back in the game. Sure enough, homers from the red-hot John Buck and Lucas Duda...
