Did Juan Lagares earn management’s trust in 2014?

There are conflicting reports as to the severity of the injury to Juan Lagares. There’s not a ton to be gained by having him rush back this year as earlier Sandy Alderson made it clear that Terry Collins is not going to be judged on what happens the last dozen games of the season. The prudent thing would be to shake his hand on a successful year and let Kirk Nieuwenhuis get...

A pitching staff ranked 14th in the Major Leagues in ERA is a positive moving forward, but the Mets need to improve upon their 21st ranked offense. On the injury front, there is question as to whether or not outfielder Juan Lagares will play again this season after...

Where Exactly Did Juan Lagares Come From?

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.

Juan Lagares could be the best defensive CF since Willie Mays

That’s a pretty blasphemous headline to some people. It’s hard enough to compare the offensive and pitching stats from one era to another, so imagine how hard it is to do with defense. We don’t have the ability to really watch an extremely large portion of Willie Mays career because baseball wasn’t televised as it is now. We don’t have the luxury of advanced defensive statistics...

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.
