Some Mets’ silver linings for 2014

After the first series since the All-Star Break, the Mets are not quite where we might have hoped they’d be at some of the more optimistic moments of the season.

Mets Turning Point: D’Arnaud Makes Padres Pay

It seemed like the Mets were going to cruise through the Padres in their first game back.  Travis d’Arnaud began the scoring as he singled in Granderson in the top of the first and later scoring on a Juan Lagares single giving the Mets an early 3-0 lead.   After the Mets scored another run in the fourth, everything seemed to be going the Mets’ way as Bartolo Colon was throwing...

Quietly, Curtis Granderson Is Matching His Career Numbers

Sometimes, we Met fans react too quickly. Curtis Granderson was the big-ticket signing of Sandy Alderson’ 2014 off-season – the puzzling contract of Chris Young notwithstanding. Given the Wilpons’ recent track record and Alderson’s stated preference to avoid giving out contracts longer than three years, Granderson’s four-year, $60 million contract came as more than...
