How did we all miss on Eric Campbell?

Chances are that if you’re reading this article, you’re a pretty die-hard Mets fan. You go to the games, you watch the games and you read about the games. It seems safe to say that you’re pretty knowledgeable about the club. This also means that you have strong opinions about the team, too.

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...

Even With A Hot Bat, Campbell To Be Delegated To Mets Pinch-Hitting Role

Eric Campbell has been the Mets super sub and more so, by batting .464 (13 for 28) when David Wright sat for eight games with a left shoulder injury. Adam Rubin of ESPN NY writes that according... [[ This is a content summary only. Visit my website for full links, other content, and more! ]]

Eric Campbell and his playing time

Eric Campbell deserves to be playing more. Actually, Eric Campbell deserves to be starting. It’s obvious that the Mets are having struggles offensively. Bobby Abreu, Chris Young, Eric Young Jr. and Curtis Granderson make up the four potential outfielders on a daily basis. Campbell hit .326 with a .437 OBP in two seasons at AAA (153 games). His career minor league numbers are a...

Campbell’s Impressive Game-Saving Grab Earns High Praise

May 23 Making his first career start in left field, Eric Campbell tied the game with a sac-fly in the second, and then added a stunning game-saving catch in the eighth inning that resulted in a rally-killing double play for the Dodgers. With the Mets trying to preserve a one run lead and Dodgers phenom Yasiel Puig already on second base representing the tying run, Hanley Ramirez hit...

Give Eric Campbell a chance in left

It’ll still take some time to get used to seeing a tall first baseman wearing #29 not named Ike Davis playing for the Mets. But what does Eric Campbell, or Soup, bring to the team? The six-foot-four, 205-pound utility player has had success with his short, compact swing and level hitting. An eighth round pick of the 2008 draft, the Connecticut native was called up five weeks into...

Eric Campbell Rates A Closer Look

OK, call me a front-runner if you must, but based on what I’ve seen of Eric Campbell so far (and with a mere handful of at-bats it ain’t much), he looks to have qualities that would do much to inject some sorely needed jolt into the Mets’ lineup. I speak not so much of numbers, as the vast majority of his stats are those of the minor league variety, but rather the look he...

New York Mets: another call up to help offense

The New York Mets appear to be making a second transaction this week to help their sputtering offense. Eric Campbell will be called up from Triple-A Las Vegas to replace Josh Satin. Campbell had a very impressive spring and had continued his hot play into the season for the Las Vegas 51s. He has played 6 positions so far this season and so can be a valuable player off the bench for...

Leaving Las Vegas: Red-Hot Eric Campbell Called Up By Mets

Campbell Could Push His Way Onto Mets Bench

Eric Campbell continues to build a strong case for a spot on the Mets bench, especially in light of the continued struggles of first baseman Josh Satin who is batting .158 in limited play and spot starts. Campbell, who named the Pacific Coast League player of the week on Tuesday, is tearing it up at Triple-A Las Vegas where he is hitting .340 with a .426 on-base and .509 slugging...
