But now both of those players are on the DL and the Mets went dumpster diving for...

New York Mets: James Loney deserves to be the everyday first baseman

On May 28th, the New York Mets acquired veteran first baseman James Loney from the San Diego Padres for cash considerations. The acquisition of Loney, who began the year in the Padres minor league system, was viewed as a stopgap until Lucas Duda could return from the disabled list. Loney has been much more than a serviceable replacement at first base. Since his debut in blue and...

Rays begin a telling week with a victory behind James Loney's clutch hit

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- James Loney watched his soft line drive flutter toward the gap and hoped it would land. At first, when he poked right-hander Kyle Lohse's 89-mph fastball toward right-center field, he felt good about his chances to deliver as the Tampa Bay Rays' Mr. Reliable again. Still, centerfielder Carlos Gomez was closing fast, and Loney braced for the best. Then, a bounce...

Tampa Bay Rays: Why James Loney has been their best player so far

The Tampa Bay Rays have not had much to be happy with in the opening quarter of the 2014 season. They have suffered through key injuries and underperformances, which has caused them to play well below expectations. The Rays are 19-28, which puts them in last place in the AL East and second to last in the entire American League. The only team worse than the Rays in the AL is the Houston...

James Loney a complex persona, but Rays better for having him back

PORT CHARLOTTE, Fla. -- James Loney always has been an enigma with the Tampa Bay Rays. He can be a man of few words but one of many actions, his complexity an asset in his rise to become one of the game's best first basemen. He's "great in the clubhouse," as center fielder Desmond Jennings calls him, but he reveals little when notepads and cameras turn his way. He fits "right in...
