Underrated: Lucas Duda is a Top Ten First Baseman

The MLB Network is almost done with their annual “Top Ten Right Now” series, having gone through every position aside from Right Field and Catcher. So far, the New York Mets have not been well represented—the “Shredder” has not been kind to the Metropolitans. We have had two players make the cut so far—Neil Walker was ranked No. 7 amongst second baseman, and Yoenis Cespedes...

Lucas Duda could have a huge 2016

The Mets have done a good job of adding, and retaining, talent and depth to their roster this off-season. They are, arguably, a more complete and better team than the 2015 version that stormed their way to the World Series. Fans are rightfully excited to see Yoenis Cespedes back in the team’s lineup, but they’re also looking forward to seeing their youngsters like Michael Conforto...

Why Aren’t the Cubs Shifting All That Much?

In the fourth game of the 2015 National League Championship Series, down 3-0 in the series, the Cubs had their backs against the wall. And in the top of the first inning, Lucas Duda set the tenor of the game when he drilled a three-run shot into center field on a full count offering from starter Jason […]

Spring training is a little over a month away, and the reigning National League Champion New York Mets are certain to enjoy their time in sunny Port St. Lucie, Florida. There is business to do down south, however. Spring training is a time for the organization to evaluate talent and for players to—pardon the pun—get back in the swing of things. Lucas Duda Duda was wildly inconsistent...

Under the Greydar: Lucas Duda

It was a year to remember for the Amazins in 2015. Jacob deGrom, Matt Harvey, and Noah Syndergaard fronted the best starting rotation in MLB. Yoenis Cespedes had a 2nd half for the ages after being acquired at the trade deadline. Curtis Granderson put his forgettable 2014 season behind him and played at an all-star level. Michael Conforto made quite an impact as a rookie following...

Royals advanced scouting told players to test Lucas Duda’s arm

Eric Hosmer had hardly any time to think about taking off for home and scoring the tying run in the ninth inning Sunday night, but that doesn’t mean he wasn’t prepared for the situation. Shortly after the Royals closed out the Mets to capture a championship, Andy McCullough of The Kansas City Star credited Kansas...Read More

Mets need Lucas Duda to join the playoff party

There are six players for the Mets who have started the four previous NLDS games. As you would expect from a small sample, their stats are all over the place. But five of the six have come up big in at least one game and have something to hang their hat on, regardless of how they’ve hit otherwise. Yoenis Cespedes and Daniel Murphy each have two homers. Travis d’Arnaud had...

The losing is hard to watch, but what's worse is falling in love with mediocre players who clearly aren’t talented enough to amount to a Major League regular.It is these journeymen and future journeymen that make losing seasons entertaining for fans but also that...
