New York Mets: Current situation at the halfway point

We are now halfway through the 2014 MLB season. And it is that time of year where every MLB team does their midseason evaluation. These past few days are the time when teams begin to realistically look at the likelihood of postseason baseball. Once this point of contention is settled, the team can decide if they are going to be ‘buyers’, ‘sellers’, or even do a little bit...

Which pitcher is most likely to be dealt?

As the trade deadline approaches, rumors will continue to swirl about the likes of Bartolo Colon and Daniel Murphy. With the Mets’ glut of outfielders, they will likely be looking for takers for the Youngs (Chris and Eric Jr.) as Granderson and Lagares are mainstays. My bet is that Eric Young Jr. remains in the lineup part-time, with Kirk Nieuenhuis and Eric Campbell coming off...

Young, Campbell come up big off the bench to propel Mets to win over Marlins

A pinch-hit homer from Chris Young, an outstanding defensive play by Daniel Murphy and a win in a one-run game. What’s gotten into these Mets? Young’s homer tied the game in the seventh and Eric Campbell’s pinch-hit single an inning later knocked in the winning run in a 5-4 victory over the Marlins at Citi Field, in what manager Terry Collins said “might be the biggest...

Cool Is A Rule … But Only While We’re Young

I expounded yesterday about how the Mets don’t have nearly enough easy victories. But that doesn’t mean I don’t enjoy the nail biters once in a while. And Saturday’s victory over the Marlins was a nail biter that I can get behind. Daisuke Matsuzaka pitched six innings and gave up four runs. Not terrible, but not great. There is a discussion happening about whether to put...

Mets Outfield Merry-Go-Round Needs to Stop

On Opening Day, the Mets appeared poised to start off the new campaign with a consistent outfield of Juan Lagares and their two offseason acquisitions, Chris Young and Curtis Granderson. However, since Young was scratched with a hamstring injury and started the season on the disabled list, the Mets outfield has been a revolving door. While Granderson and Lagares merit playing every...

Quick Hitter: Defending Chris Young

Over this past weekend, Chris Young was booed by his hometown fans. That needs to stop. Let’s get something out of the way. Young has been terrible this year, but what did we all expect? Young has been in decline the last four seasons, so was there any real reason to expect that this year would be a bounce back for him? Marlon Byrd bounced back last year, but Byrd’s 2012 season...

Chris Young Strikes Out Four Times, Now Batting .196

Chris Young may have had one of his worst games as a Met today, going 0-for-4 with four strikeouts and failing to hustle on a line drive into the outfield that got by him. Young saw his batting average drop to .196 with a .283 on-base percentage. The fans at Citi Field let him have it, booing and jeering Young after each long walk from home plate to the dugout. “You’re out...
