a href=”http://mets360.com/?attachment_id=11088″ rel=”attachment wp-att-11088″>I reached out to friends in the Mets blogosphere recently to ask the following question: With about 1/3 of the season in the books, how do you feel about Daniel Murphy at 2B and should he be the starter in 2013?
Their names are hyperlinked to their blogs so please go ahead and click on them to check out their real work.
Mack Ade – President of the Elvin Ramirez fan club
Daniel Murphy has done everything he can do to become an everyday player in the National League. All that’s left for him is second base and the emergency third base and first baseman. As I write, Wilmer Flores is being converted to a second baseman. Reese Havens and Danny Muno have taken themselves out of the plan. I would play Murphy until Flores is ready.

The answer is to be determined. His defense is the work-in-progress we expected. His offense, per OP...
BEST OF MAXIM
As everyone and there mother is panning Ike Davis, Jason Bay and the relief pitching there is 1 guy in the pen who is holding his own. Tim Byrdak has been doing is best Pedro Felicano impression by pitching as much as he can and doing his best by keeping the Mets in the game. Besides the Mets closer Francisco Birdie has been holding his own.

As someone who takes great pride in running a Mets fansite, I must admit that occasionally I am repulsed by the behavior of some of those who call themselves Mets fans. Among our incredible fanbase, lurk many who occupy the lowest depths of depravity and are a pariah among us.
You may have wondered what Keith Hernandez and Gary Cohen were referring to during last night’s broadcast...
The MMO Player of the Week for this week had himself a huge week and looks like he’s heating up and getting ready to deliver some big numbers for the Mets.
This week includes the final game of the Cardinals series, the 3-game series against the Nationals and the 3-game series against the Yankees. Check out how well Duda did this week!
The New York Mets ended a three-game losing streak, scoring a season high eleven runs against the Tampa Bay Rays on Tuesday night:

The Mets go for the three game sweep tonight as they take on the Rays in Tampa. Last night was another tremendous night for this team as Dickey absolutely crushed the Rays and made...
Once again, boom goes the dynamite. The Mets offensive barrage against the Tampa Bay Rays leaked into the final game of the series, helping the team secure an interleague sweep in a 9-6 victory.
The offense continued to be timely. Kirk Nieuwenhuis and Jason Bay kicked off the game with a pair of solo shots. The jumpstart helped the Mets stay in the game despite the continued struggles...
New York Mets manager Terry Collins took fault with Johan Santana's most recent outing.
Jeremy Hellickson of the Tampa Bay Rays only has himself to blame for his latest performance.
Coming off another pitching milestone, the Mets hope Santana can rebound from one of his worst starts of the season when he opposes Hellickson, who goes for his first victory in a month in Thursday...
It must be something I give off. I wasn't wearing any Mets stuff early in my day on Wednesday. Yet all I had to do was mention to a couple of other people in the hotel I was staying at that I live in Queens for them to tell me that they were big Mets fans and start talking baseball.
Then I got to a restaurant to enjoy a meal while wearing swim trunks and a ratty Eric Clapton...
Not too long ago, the answer to that question would be easy. A resounding “NO!”. Too much money, too old, bad attitude, lousy fielder and he is a strikeout waiting to happen. Physical prowess be damned, he just has too much baggage. Then again, not too long ago, I would have scoffed at the idea of signing Derrek Lee to the team. My, how things have changed.
At the very least...
Yesterday, WFAN’s Mike Francesa discussed how Mets broadcasters Howie Rose and Gary Cohen were “out of line” during this past weekend’s Subway Series.
Francesa said that it’s great that the Mets have fans as announcers, but that they sometimes take it too far in rooting for their team, especially against the Yankees.
Frankly, I love that Rose and Cohen are as die-hard of...
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- The National League wins co-leader faced the American League wins co-leader Wednesday night, a 98 mph fastballs vs. 80 mph knuckleballs. It was contest. The New York Mets' R.A. Dickey bedazzled the Rays with his knuckler to come within one infield hit of a no-hitter, and the Mets ripped the Tampa Bay Rays 9-1. Rays starter David Price was bludgeoned...
