Which Mets Bench Player Will See the Most Time?

The New York Mets are ready to defend the National League pennant. The majority of the 2015 team will be returning minus Daniel Murphy. However, Sandy Alderson has done a phenomenal job of adding depth to this group. The additions of Alejandro De Aza and Asdrubal Cabrera have truly strengthened the infield and outfield. Starting players from last year’s club will now have to adjust...

Mets Should Move Conforto Around

I read something the other day about the Mets giving Michael Conforto some time in right field and immediately thought, well, why not? I would also consider giving him some reps in center field. And, while they’re at it, why not try him at the top of the order? CONFORTO: Could see some time in right. (AP) I don’t like typecasting a young player to one position and one slot...

Mets will be present for two Royals’ WS ceremonies

If the New York Mets have managed to get over the disappointment and heartbreak of losing the World Series in five games last fall, the Kansas City Royals unfortunately will remind their vanquished opponents of the sting of coming up short to kick-off the 2016 MLB season. The Royals have their home opener scheduled for Sunday, April 3, and the visiting team will just so happen...

Asdrubal Cabrera is the X-Factor

The Mets have numerous pieces in their lineup that have the potential to provide offense throughout the season. Yoenis Cespedes, Lucas Duda and David Wright are going to be considered staples throughout the season, as the veterans should be occupied driving in runs. We know that the Mets have a tremendous pitching staff, and that the bullpen should be able to hold their own. The...

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...

Looking At Mets’ Early Schedule

Since the Super Bowl is considered a national holiday, I’ve always considered it the end of the winter holiday season, and consequently “baseball season” begins tomorrow. So, I figure this is a good time to fast-forward to the Mets’ April schedule. I’ll ***** about this later, but the first game of the season shouldn’t be interleague. However, if it is going to be that...

Ron Darling Wants Mets To Stop Babying The Young Starters

You know me, I love to post fan created art and graphics of our New York Mets. On Friday night I came across this really cool poster that was designed by imlookinatu who posted it in Mets Reddit thread. As was reported on multiple occasions, both Sandy Alderson and Terry Collins don’t expect any innings limits this season for Matt Harvey, Jacob deGrom, Noah Syndergaard and the...

Sunday Notes: Seratelli’s Sayonara, Kaminsky’s Curve, Cards, ARod Managing, more

Mitch Harris is known for his back story. The 30-year-old righthander was drafted by the Cardinals in 2008, but he didn’t throw his first professional pitch until 2013. The interim years were spent protecting Uncle Sam. Harris did two tours of duty in the Persian Gulf and another off the coast of Colombia, where his ship helped curtail drug-smuggling operations. Last year, Harris...

De Aza On Block … Or Is He?

Well, that was quick. With Yoenis Cespedes now in the fold, Alejandro De Aza is suddenly now available. Or, at least that is what is being reported because of the crowded situation in the Mets’ outfield with Cespedes, Curtis Granderson, Juan Lagares, Michael Conforto and De Aza. Mets GM Sandy Alderson said a trade is possible, but not imminent. Since De Aza, who’ll make $5.75...

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...

What Will Familia Do For An Encore This Season

With Antonio Bastardo already in camp, the New York Mets bullpen will start to take form. There’s a battle for the last spot, depending on whether Sean Gilmartin, Rafael Montero or Logan Verrett can fill the sixth starter role. Bastardo believes he’ll be the answer in the 8th inning, although Addison Reed will likely have something to say about that. There’s also some concern...

Yoenis Cespedes, Jerry Seinfeld still on for Cuban sandwiches

Lifelong New York Mets fan Jerry Seinfeld was understandably thrilled last season when his favorite baseball team on July 31st acquired slugger Yoenis Cespedes in a trade with the Detroit Tigers. So much so, in fact, that the comedian took to Twitter and dropped a reference from his classic television show to celebrate the roster move. Oh my god. @MetsI can't believe I can actually...

Binghamton Mets unveil ill-advised ‘Netflix and Chill’ promo night

The promotional department of the Binghamton Mets evidently does not know what “Netflix and chill” means. On Monday, the team – the AA affiliate of the New York Mets – unveiled some sort of “Netflix and Chill” promotion set for April 12. We are guessing that those involved in staging this promotion do not know that “Netflix and chill” is common youthful parlance...

How the Mets Could Afford Yoenis Cespedes

New York Mets ownership has come under increased scrutiny over the past few years. Lowering payroll in a gigantic media market and getting entwined in the Bernie Madoff Ponzi scheme will bring that kind of attention. Back at the trading deadline, there were many, including myself, wondering why the Mets were acting like a small-market team in New York. The team quieted many doubters...
