Featured Post: Can Mets Win With Wright As Their Top Hitter?

I’ve been having this internal debate with myself over the past few months. With so much riding on 2015, the Mets have put a huge burden on several players. While a lot will be expected of the returning Matt Harvey and the elite stable of pitchers that follow him in the rotation, so much more rides on the bats of Curtis Granderson and David Wright. Granderson has morphed into...

Featured Post: Wright Remains Mets’ Most Critical Question

Among the myriad of questions facing the New York Mets headed into next season, I believe the most important is the status of David Wright. A recent ESPN poll listed baseball’s top ten third basemen and Wright, based on his recent injury history and performance, wasn’t on the list and shouldn’t have been. Therein, is why he’s my most critical Mets’ question for 2015. The...

New York Mets: postseason awards

The New York Mets finished the 2014 season 79-83 and tied for second place in the National League East.

But there are several unofficial postseason awards to give out based on performances of this season. Team MVP Daniel Murphy (.289, 9 HR, 57 RBI) Murphy...

David Wright should be benched for his own good

Every so often a team is on the verge of competing, but needs a big bat to push them over the edge. In 2014, the Mets are that team, but when the trading deadline came and went at the end of July, no moves were made. That’s because the Mets already have that big bat in David Wright. They are just waiting for him to be David Wright. 2014 hasn’t been overly kind to Wright who’s...

Trading David Wright? What the what?

There has been talk festering throughout the Mets’ blogosphere that the Mets should admit that they are going nowhere fast, swallow their pride and trade David Wright away for prospects while he still has some value. Wait, what? You mean trading the franchise and the effervescent face of the franchise? Well, before we dismiss it totally, as Brian Joura pointed the other day, Wright...
