Mets’ Issues That Must Be Answered Positively To Reach The Playoffs

The Mets can be a playoff team, but a lot of things must break their way before there’s meaningful October baseball at Citi Field. With it being apparent they won’t make any substantial additions between now and Opening Day, they’ll have to improve enough to win at least an additional ten games with their current roster. That’s a tall order. Here’s what must happen: Matt...

Is Terry Collins’ projected 2015 lineup playoff bound?

In a recent article written by Kevin Kernan of the New York Post, he quotes Terry Collins as saying “I don’t think that there is any question that we should be playing October next year”, which echoes that comments Matt Harvey has made. The team has high expectations of competing, and the manager believes that this upcoming season should be promising. Collins would go on...

Mets Matters: Wright Starts Hitting

While much of Major League Baseball was active in a swirling trade market, the Mets were getting ready for Christmas. The most important bit of news was that David Wright reached the next level in his rehab and is starting to swing the bat and told ESPN he’s on track to intensify his training. Wright, who turned 32 Saturday, also plans to meet with new hitting coach Kevin Long...

What Would Have To Happen For Mets To Get Tulo

Bloggers and sports columnists have been all over the possible Troy Tulowitzki to the New York Mets story. Where it stands is that many say, “it’s definitely not happening” and others say, “it’s unlikely, maybe a 5-10% chance.” So the odds are pretty slim that something like this will go down. I thought I’d come at the question based on how far apart the two sides...

Christmas wishes for the 2015 Mets

Even though the kids are home from school, the shopping is mostly done and neighborhood lights are up, it still seems strange to me that Christmas is four days away. Seems like it was Thanksgiving just last week. Anyway, there’s one tradition sure to get me in the holiday mood. Move over child in the manger and guy in the sled with the reindeer – it’s time for my annual...

What is Dillon Gee’s trade value?

In an age in baseball where there is a glut of pitching, in an offseason where there is plenty of front-line talent available, and with all the assets the New York Mets have the ability to move, it seems Dillon Gee is the one they are shopping around the most aggressively. Gee is a fine back-end of the rotation starter, but in the end he is just that – a back-end starter.  Number...

Report: Rockies and Mets kicking around Troy Tulowitzki trade

The New York Mets need a shortstop. Wilmer Flores and Ruben Tejada are nice players, but the Mets need someone who can make more of an impact at the position offensively. That doesn’t leave general manager Sandy Alderson many options. How many MLB shortstops can provide middle-of-the-order run production, while also playing excellent defense? Ian Desmond fits such criteria, but...

A Case For Not Trading Gee

There’s been a lot of talk about the Mets wanting to trade Dillon Gee. I understand their reasoning and on the surface it all makes sense. However, I wouldn’t be the contrarian I am if I didn’t examine the other side. Sure, the rotation looks crowded with the return of Matt Harvey. But, what if his return from elbow surgery isn’t smooth? What if Jon Niese continues to falter...

Did the New York Mets improve enough to compete?

The New York Mets finished 79-83 in 2014. It was the year every Mets fan heard and thought would be the year they make it back to the playoffs. An injury to their best player, set them back a year as Matt Harvey missed the whole season after under going Tommy John Surgery at the end of the 2013 season. Now, there are no more excuses for Sandy Alderson or Terry Collins. This is the...

New York Mets: Opening Day lineup projection

After 6 consectuive losing seasons, the New York Mets have built up enough major league talent to give some people hope that a Wild Card position isn’t out of reach. In preparation for the season, manager Terry Collins announced what he projects as the Opening Day starting lineup given the roster that the Mets have at this moment. Here are his projections followed by my analysis...

New York Mets Rumors: Jung-Ho Kang Update

The New York Mets have remained undecided on who will play the shortstop position, with indecision on Sandy Alderson’s part about whether to make a bid for Korean infielder Jung-Ho Kang. Kang was posted by the Nexen Heros of the Korean Baseball Organization on Monday December 15th, and teams will be able to bid on Kang until 5pm this Friday, December 19th. The highest bidding team...

Sandy Alderson: Wilmer Flores ‘likely’ 2015 SS, but why?

New York Mets GM Sandy Alderson told reporters at the Mets Holiday Party for Kids that there is a ‘very high’ probability the club will field Wilmer Flores at shortstop in 2015. Somehow, this makes sense. Jose Reyes is long gone, and Troy Tulowitzki will not soon don a Mets jersey. The price for high-profile bats has skyrocketed this offseason. The Detroit Tigers parted ways...

Dillon Gee: ‘Mets are ready to win'; but will he be there?

New York Mets starting pitcher Dillon Gee appeared on MLB Network’s “Hot Stove” Monday afternoon to discuss the team’s progress. In no uncertain terms did Gee hold back: He believes the club will contend in 2015. But Gee himself is no guarantee to be part of the team. The Daily News last week reported the pitcher’s days with the organization may be numbered as the Mets...

Now he’s heading to Japan. Seratelli signed a one-year contract with the Seibu Lions, and the primary reason was money. Nine years after […]
