Andres Torres helps the Mets in many ways

Is there anything Andres Torres can’t do? Before we praise Torres, let’s take a minute to remember how he came to the Mets in the first place over the winter. Depending on your point of view, Torres was acquired: A – Since the Mets were desperate to get rid of Angel Pagan B – Since the Mets were eager to get Ramon Ramirez But it’s been nothing but good things for the...

Torres making his case for leading off

One of the main concerns for the Mets heading into this season was how they would go about filling the void at the top of the order that was left when Jose Reyes left for Miami. While some petitioned for perhaps Daniel Murphy or Ruben Tejada to land the role, the odds on favorite was always Andres Torres.

If that's all Torres is then Damon makes sense...

Jon Heyman reported yesterday that he was told a competing exec. believed Andres Torres is nothing more then a 5th outfielder.The Mets actions may be confirming that belief, first going after Cody Ross and now monitoring the left handed outfield market.  Ankiel and Fokudome could platoon with Torres but Damon might be the perfect fit.   Damon would be able to hit at the top of...

Getting acquainted with the newest Mets’ CF Andres Torres

While the biggest impact acquisitions in the off-season for the Mets has to be the additions of Frank Francisco, Jon Rauch and Ramon Ramirez to the bullpen, the addition of Andres Torres certainly is of equal importance to the franchise.

Torres needs a RHB caddy...

This is not a bash Andres Torres post, there seem to be plenty of those going around since the trade.  Ramon Ramirez makes the trade a win in my opinion but after watching Pagan defensively last season, an upgrade in center field works for me.  Sure Pagan is a better career hitter but how much of his offense is off-set by his horrible play in the field last year.So based on the...
