METS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Keep Murphy As Super Utility Player?

Wait, what? That’s exactly what Joel Sherman of the New York Post suggests the Mets do with Daniel Murphy next season. The Mets should pay Murphy roughly $8 million to be a utility man next year, or really a super-utility man. Their defenseless version of Ben Zobrist. His reasoning is that a team that already struggles on offense and plans to contend next season, should not be...

Mets Infield Defense Has Become A Major Liability

Generally speaking, the closer a game is to little league level, the harder it is to watch. You remember those days growing up and playing baseball all spring, summer and fall long. There were those games each and every season when things just got away. They almost always involved a play in which someone turned a single into a run after several throwing errors. Yesterdays game against...

New York Mets: 5 reasons Lucas Duda is becoming a top first baseman

Not much has gone right for the New York Mets this season. One thing that did was picking Lucas Duda over Ike Davis. Duda has shined in his first opportunity to be a full time first baseman. Granted he is in a bit of a slump at the moment but on the season as a whole, Duda has faired better than many expected (including myself). Here are some reasons that Duda should be considered...

Mets miss boat not trading Bartolo Colon

Surely you were aware the New York Mets were tied to trade rumors leading up to the waiver-trade deadline, with Bartolo Colon‘s name being front and center. With the Los Angeles Angels losing Garrett Richards for the foreseeable future, and them needing a quality, veteran arm, they needed another good arm for the stretch run. Heck, at this point of the year many playoff-hopeful...

Why Eric Campbell should be playing LF now (and maybe next year too!)

Over 160 career ABs, Matt den Dekker has shown that he is most likely not going to be the Mets everyday LF for the foreseeable future. We all know he can play the position, but he can’t hit. His K rate has decreased in his current stint on the Mets, but he isn’t hitting for power, he’s not hitting for average, he’s not doing anything with his bat. His wRC+ is 56, his ISO...

Currently the Mets outfield is made up of two players in the teams long term plans, Curtis Granderson and Juan Lagares. The third outfield position is manned by a make it or break it platoon of Matt den Dekker and Eric Campbell. The issue with this arrangement is that the Mets lack offense and they currently have two positions, the third outfield position and shortstop, from...

The New York Mets have made a big move concerning their middle infield. No, Troy Tulowitzki is not coming over in a trade. Instead the Mets have opted to put Daniel Murphy on the disabled list and call up Dilson Herrera from Double-A.

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...
