Who was the Least Valuable Met in 2014?

Over the past few weeks, we’ve taken a look at the worst players of each section of the 2014 New York Mets roster: the starting fielders, the starting pitchers, the bullpen and the bench players. We’ve narrowed down a short list for each category and named a Least Valuable Nominee from each list to bring us to the final four of sorts. While there has been some debate on a few...

Chris Young Has No Regrets About Time With Mets

Chris Young was a major point of ridicule for Sandy Alderson this year. After passing on Nelson Cruz in the offseason, they signed Young as a buy-low candidate. What resulted was a season of turmoil in Queens before turning his season around in the Bronx. With the Mets in 2014, Young hit .205/.283/.346/.630 in 287 plate appearances. He was unable to produce, hitting just eight home...

Next up in our projection review series is Chris Young. Everyone says now that they hated the signing and wanted him gone months before he actually got the axe. Part of the value of doing projections is that they provide a nice snapshot in time, so we can see at least what people on our staff thought in the moment. Here was our official forecast: PA – 512 AVG – .236 OBP –...

New York Mets: Chris Young released, den Dekker recalled

New York Mets fans can rejoice. Chris Young has been designated for assignment. Fans have been clamoring for Young’s release for months as he has failed to produce to the level of his $7.25 million contract. Young was signed for his power with the hope that he would bounce back from a sub-par 2013 (.200, 14 home runs) but instead the numbers have looked remarkably similar at .205...

Cutting Chris Young Should Be Next On To-Do List

Could it really be this easy? Could cutting Chris Young be the answer to all of the Mets problems this year? Of course not. As Mike Vaccaro wrote today in the New York Post, cutting Young would be a scapegoat of sorts, but simply his presence on the team contradicts the entire edict of this team. Sandy Alderson is a man of accountability and Young has been a drain on an otherwise...

Chris Young: Is he deja vu all over again?

There’s an old saying, “those who do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it”. It seems that while watching the 2014 version of the New York Mets, that management hasn’t learned that lesson. For example, in December of 2009, the Mets outbid no one in order to overpay for a solid defensive corner outfielder that was supposed to have a big bat too. That player is Jason...

Questions have been swirling over the past two weeks regarding the Colorado Rockies’ apparent willingness to part with shortstop Troy Tulowitzki and/or outfielder Carlos Gonzalez. The New York Mets have been mentioned in connection to both players as we are slightly more than 24 hours away from the trade deadline. Certainly the Mets have a need for both. Ruben Tejada still has...

Chris Young, Low and Away

It is a tough predicament when you have a true weakness. Nowadays, with data available on every facet of the game, there is no way to hide it. Chris Young must know this. When a blogger, like me, sitting on my couch at home can find out how to pitch to Young’s weakness, then surely opposing pitchers will do the same. So what is this obvious weakness in Chris Young’s game? When...
