New York Mets: is Juan Lagares’ glove golden?

I predicted at the beginning of this season that Juan Lagares would finish in the top 10 in Gold Glove voting. As it turns out, he has a chance to do significantly better than that. New York Mets fans are all aware of Lagares’ defensive wizardry. Nationally, however he isn’t the first name to anyone’s lips despite what the statistics may show. Lagares’ defensive prowess does...

MMO Fan Shot: Is Juan Lagares The Best Defensive Outfielder Since Willie Mays?

An MMO Fan Shot by Juan Manuel Fernandez Is Juan Lagares the best defensive outfielder since Willie Mays? My uncle Chago would scream blasphemy! It is tough enough to compare players from different eras especially with a defensive metric that wasn’t in use until about 40 years after Willie Mays played his final game. But let’s take a look at where the stats lead us. One thing...

Reynolds and Plawecki Unlikely to Join Mets, Syndergaard Still Being Debated

According to a report by Adam Rubin of ESPN New York, while the Mets have yet to make an official announcement, it appears that catcher Kevin Plawecki and  middle infielder Matt Reynolds will be not promoted to the major league roster on September 1. Team insiders told Rubin that neither player needs to be added to the 40-man roster this winter, and with the Mets needing to protect...

Mets have options in potential deal for Colon

Bartolo Colon laughed when asked about the possibility that the Mets may trade him prior to Sunday's waiver Trade Deadline. A 17-year veteran of eight big league clubs, Colon pays so little heed to this sort of thing that he was unaware he even hit the waiver wire until a reporter brought reports of it to his attention. "Whatever the team and ownership decide to do, that...

WATCH: Mets turn triple play against Dodgers

Thanks to some errant baserunning by Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig, the New York Mets pulled off their first triple play in over four seasons. New York’s Lucas Duda caught Puig rounding third and gunned it to home for the third out, completing the 5-4-3-2 triple play.  Watch the video here!

Mets Questions Still Remain

Britt (Flickr Creative Commons) The New York Mets avoided a sweep finishing up their short west coast trip with a 2-3 record by defeating the Los Angeles Dodgers 11-3. Most Mets would have been happy if they had saved some of those runs for Citi Field and the Atlanta Braves. Bartolo Colon pitched six strong innings and continues...

Lucas Duda’s day has come

For years the debate raged on. Should the Mets keep Ike Davis or Lucas Duda as their first baseman?  Some thought that Duda was the clear-cut better choice, while others steadfastly defended Davis.  I flip-flopped my stance on Davis more times than your average Washington politician. Coming into this season, my stance was I thought that Davis had the higher potential, but Duda...

Keeping Bartolo Colon might be the best move

With the Mets placing Bartolo Colon on revocable waivers Saturday, the possibility of trading their pitcher is becoming real. Although Colon is signed throughout the 2015 season, many fans are calling for the righty to be traded, but the right decision may be holding onto the pitcher. So far throughout this season, Colon has pitched to an 11-10 record, 3.85 ERA, 125 strikeouts and...

New York Mets: Colon still possibly a trade target

Just because the July 31 deadline has passed doesn’t mean teams cannot make trades. The New York Mets and Sandy Alderson certainly know this. As recently as last year the Mets made an August trade in sending Marlon Byrd and John Buck to Pittsburgh. A similar move is possible again this year. Could Bartolo Colon be the replacement for Garrett Richards? Bartolo Colon, the subject...

Juan Lagares could be the best defensive CF since Willie Mays

That’s a pretty blasphemous headline to some people. It’s hard enough to compare the offensive and pitching stats from one era to another, so imagine how hard it is to do with defense. We don’t have the ability to really watch an extremely large portion of Willie Mays career because baseball wasn’t televised as it is now. We don’t have the luxury of advanced defensive statistics...

Brooklyn Cyclones to wear 'Slime' jerseys on '90s Night'

The viral challenge has taken the Internet by storm this summer with buckets of icy water being dumped on heads in order to raise awareness for ALS. The Cyclones — the New York Mets’ short-season Single-A affiliate — put a new twist on the challenge. Instead of ice water, the Cyclones used “slime”...
