Can Wilmer Flores Outhit His Defense?

The experts say the Mets are lacking at shortstop, have been since Jose Reyes took his talents to South Florida after 2011. Considering that Reyes had just won the Mets’ first batting title in 50 seasons of baseball and that his initial replacement was Ruben Tejada, the experts have not been wrong. Tejada put up some promising numbers in extremely small sample sizes during 2010...

So Far Flores Making The Grade

Wilmer Flores has done nothing to thwart the Mets’ confidence in him to open the season at shortstop. He’s made several nice plays in the field, and will only get better as his knowledge of opposing hitters and his positioning improves. Look, he’s not going to be the second coming of Rey Ordonez, but for now the Mets want him to make the basic plays, and for the most part that’s...

Collins Still Not Sold On Flores At Shortstop

Wilmer Flores has hit the ground running in Spring Training, and while stats don’t matter too much this time of the year, it’s still better than looking for your first hit five games in. Flores is now 5-for-11 with a double and an RBI in four games this spring. Flores also flashed the leather on Sunday, making three very rangy and difficult plays. In the first inning, Flores...

It’s Time For All Fans To Embrace Shortstop Wilmer Flores

In a recent Newsday report, Mark Carig applauded Wilmer Flores’ work ethic claiming the 23-year old infielder has only allowed himself two weeks away from baseball this offseason. As he prepares to take the reins as the Mets’ everyday shortstop in 2015, Flores has done all that he could to prove the doubters wrong. A crowed offseason schedule saw Flores first playing Winter...

New York Mets: trade rumors continue

This late in the off-season, it seems very probable that the New York Mets have reconciled with Wilmer Flores as their Opening Day and starting shortstop. The Mets have repeatedly struck down many trade opportunities, including a deal that could have potentially sent Troy Tulowitzki from the Colorado Rockies to the Mets. The Mets are unwilling to part with their top prospects, especially...

New York Mets trade rumors: Ben Zobrist edition

It’s been reported that the Tampa Bay Rays agreed to a contract with free agent shortstop/second baseman Asdrubal Cabrera. Believe it or not, this could have a positive impact on the New York Mets. The addition of Cabrera gives the Rays a surplus of infielders including Yunel Escobar and Nick Franklin to go with James Loney and Evan Longoria. This could leave Ben Zobrist out...
