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...

Mets Will Play Both D’Arnaud and Buck At Same Time If It Comes Down To That

Updated by HoJo at 2:15 PM According to Adam Rubin of ESPN New York, if Travis d’Arnaud is promoted at some point this season whenever the team deems him ready it will not affect John Buck’s playing time at all if he is still producing. Terry Collins said that both could possibly start in the same game with Buck potentially playing first base. Buck has never played a Major...

The Grandest Buck-Shot Of Them All; Watch and Learn d’Arnaud

Not snow, nor sleet, nor rain or hail could keep John Buck from belting his sixth home run – a grand slam. Another game, another highlight. That’s what the season has been like for Mets catcher John Buck who belted a grand slam and scored two runs last night against the Twins. Buck is now batting .351/.350/.865 with an incredible 1.215 OPS on the season with a National League...

John Buck continues his torrid pace during New York Mets victory over Twins

Pre-game snowflakes were not enough to cool down John Buck and the New York Mets offense at Target Field on Friday night.  The Mets pounded out five runs in each of the first two innings, including a grand-slam by Buck in second, en-route to a 16-5 victory over the Twins. #bbpBox_322897932317782018 a { text-decoration:none; color:#0084B4; }#bbpBox_322897932317782018 a:hover { text...

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...

Mets 16, Twins 5

As snowflakes swirled over Target Field, John Buck drove another ball deep into the air to join them. Buck and the New York Mets sure didn't let the wintry Minnesota night slow down their swings. Buck kept up his powerful start with a grand slam, his fourth home run in the last four games, and the Mets beat the Twins 16-5 on Friday. ''You're almost starting to...

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...

Daniel Murphy – The Mets’ Overlooked Offensive Star

Can you spot the overlooked offensive star in this photo? With all the attention being paid to John Buck’s torrid start, another Met’s offensive performance has gone under the radar.  But his start is just as noteworthy as Buck’s. Daniel Murphy has always been a great contact hitter, lashing doubles at a rate never before seen by a left-handed hitter in Mets history.  Nearly...

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...
