Flores Not Mets’ Biggest Flaw

Critics of the Mets, and there are many, are missing the point when it comes to Wilmer Flores. I just read somewhere of a list of the Mets’ biggest flaws, and of course, Flores is right up there as they point to his errors. FLORES: Comes through in clutch. (AP) Unquestionably, Flores is a flawed player, but who isn’t? He’s in the lineup for his bat, plain and simple. That’s...

Let Them Eat Crow…

He did it again… Wilmer Flores, who had been hitting the ball on the screws all night without a base hit to show for it, wouldn’t be denied in the tenth inning as his game-winning walk off single would attest. “I faced the guy before and I was looking for a breaking ball,” Flores said. “I got it up, he threw it, I was ready for it.” For Flores, it was his second career...

The Baseball Maverick May Want To Consider Reviving Shortstop Next

Nobody wanted to see Wilmer Flores succeed at shortstop more than I did. I spent the majority of this offseason urging whoever would listen that we needed to see if Flores could work at shortstop before completely abandoning the idea. If it worked, the payoff would have been huge. Unfortunately, as the season nears the first-quarter pole, the realization that this experiment has...

Matthew Cerrone on today’s Mets lineup

Yep, we’re looking at Tejada at third base and Wilmer Flores at shortstop, together, both on the left side of the infield. Take it in, everyone, let that burn in to your brains for a bit!

New York Mets make another promotion

The New York Mets have yet to figure out how to fix their offense. The answer was not 2 games off for Wilmer Flores or the promotion of Dilson Herrera as the Mets were shut out 1-0 in consecutive games against the Nationals. So the Mets will now try to add another offensive weapon. Johnny Monell has been recalled from Triple-A. Monell, a catcher, saw some significant playing time...
