Upon Further Review: Lagares Blew Play

It is totally irrelevant, 100 percent, replays showed Blake Swihart’s drive off the wall that resulted in an inside-the-park home run would have been ruled a conventional homer had it been reviewed. Also irrelevant, and unacceptable, is Juan Lagares’ explanation that he saw the ball go over the line. “One hundred percent,’’ Lagares told reporters. “It hit over the line...

Lagares Rewards Collins With Impressive Day At the Plate

During the Mets 4-0 win over the Rockies, Juan Lagares had one of his best games of the season. He collected three hits in five at-bats, and he drove in two RBI. He led off the game with a double in the first inning, and he then belted another extra base hit that drove in […]

When it comes to Juan Lagares, expect the unexpected

The Mets are in a race for the playoffs and most nights Juan Lagares is on the bench. It’s not something most of us, much less his avid supporters, pictured coming into the season. Yet, viewed within the roller coaster ride that’s been his career with the Mets, it makes perfect sense. Lagares’ rise to the majors was anything but typical and his career path continues to...

What’s Future Of Lagares With Mets?

Let’s assume the Mets succeed in signing Yoenis Cespedes to a contract extension. Then factor in Michael Conforto for a spot next year – you know he won’t make the Opening Day roster as a role player. LAGARES: Where does he fit? (AP) And, with Michael Cuddyer signed for one more year and Curtis Granderson for two, what does that mean for Juan Lagares? After his 2014 Gold...

Lagares Deal Not Panning Out

The Juan Lagares I saw last night couldn’t have been the same player the Mets signed to a five-year, $23-million contract. Could it be? Two balls were hit over his head. There probably weren’t two balls hit over his head every two months last season. If that many. He’s not Paul Blair; he’s not good enough to play that shallow. LAGARES: What happened? (AP) We know something...

The State of Juan Lagares’ Defense

Among the many complains of Mets fans at the moment is that the defense hasn’t been doing enough to support a pitching staff that carries the burden of trying to do everything. It stands to reason, if you’re going to be built first and foremost around run prevention, you’d want to do as much as […]

New York Mets: is Juan Lagares’ glove golden?

I predicted at the beginning of this season that Juan Lagares would finish in the top 10 in Gold Glove voting. As it turns out, he has a chance to do significantly better than that. New York Mets fans are all aware of Lagares’ defensive wizardry. Nationally, however he isn’t the first name to anyone’s lips despite what the statistics may show. Lagares’ defensive prowess does...

Juan Lagares and his Gold Glove Award candidacy

With just a little over of two months of baseball remaining, talks of leading candidates for awards is starting to ramp up. Already mentioned is Jacob deGrom’s push for NL Rookie of the Year honors, but today is about Juan Lagares. There aren’t many Mets fans that would disagree with the statement that Lagares is the best defensive center fielder in the game. Some would argue...

Put Lagares in the Leadoff Spot

Juan Lagares is red-hot. Again. While the Mets offense has been somewhat stagnant of late, the gifted center fielder has been anything but, batting .440 (11-for-25) over the last two series against the Giants and Phillies. Lagares is batting .283 for the season which is second only to hits-leader Daniel Murphy. Lagares leads all Mets with a 3.2 WAR. On Monday, Lagares had three...
