Which Mets bench player is a Least Valuable Player nominee?

As we finish our look at the worst players of the 2014 New York Mets roster, we arrive at the bench. It’s an unsung hero type of position. Players that ride the pine have to share playing time and wait for their chance to make a big play in order to earn more playing time. The New York Mets have had about 15 players that have played in what could be considered bench roles. Among...

Could Mets Ultimately Fill An Outfield Spot Internally?

Let’s pretend for a moment that Sandy Alderson makes no effort to improve the Mets left field situation in the offseason. For arguments sake, we’ll say that he addresses the need at shortstop but a combination of high prices and long years got the better of the outfield candidates. Heading into 2015, can we expect anyone in the pipeline to make the jump to the big leagues? According...

How badly do the Mets need to upgrade SS and LF?

Heading into the offseason, the chorus that’s been beaten to death by pundits, fans, and pretty much everyone, is that the Mets need to upgrade at both shortstop and left field going into 2015 if they want to compete. The consensus seems to be that what the Mets got out of those two positions in 2014 was somewhere between “the worst thing ever seen” and “the worst thing ever...

Mets Lack Excitement On The 40-Man Roster

September 1st is just over one week away and looking over the Mets 40-man roster, there are really no players worth calling up. The players that currently occupy spots on the 40-man include players like Josh Satin, Andrew Brown, Cesar Puello and Erik Goeddel. None of the top prospects, guys like Noah Syndergaard, Matt Reynolds or Kevin Plawecki are on the roster and therefore a player...

In Sandy We Trust?

Despite all of the offseason moves and despite all the talk of being a 90 win team, at 37-48, the Mets are now 11 games under .500 on July 3rd for the second consecutive year. At this point last season, the Mets were the same 37-48 featuring a lineup riddled with minor league players such as Omar Quintanilla, Josh Satin and Andrew Brown. Alderson has a plan, but fans are quickly...

The Mets (28-32) lost to the Cubs (23-34) by a score of 7-4 on Thursday night at Wrigley Field.

Where is the Commitment to Winning?

After a decent week of beating up on struggling teams like the Pirates and Phillies, and seeing the Mets come to within a game of .500, you could imagine the wide-eyed look I gave at the prospect of a visit to Wrigley Field and the Cubs. Now, a mere three days later, all of that positive feeling has evaporated. Like a drug- the highs are high, but the crash is worse. The last two...
