Red Menaces And A National Eulogy

With a lineup that would have made Stan Jefferson laugh, the Mets completed their sweep of the Cincinnati Reds by a score of 8-1 on “Super Happy Post Clinch Day”, where the lineup gets drawn out of a hat with not a care in the world. Anthony Recker at first base and Kelly Johnson at shortstop were the highlights of the “Wheel-O-Lineup”, and Kevin Plawecki hitting cleanup...

New York Mets: Cuddyer, Recker return, Campbell, Plawecki demoted

The New York Mets have been on a roll since the trade deadline but it doesn’t mean that there are no more roster decisions to be made. Most decisions to have been made and the moves to come will be a result of players returning from injury although some may involve playing time as well. Michael Cuddyer has returned to the Mets maybe with a little less playing time, but with the...

Strikeouts Are Both A Concern And An Asset For Mets

During the past 30 days, only four other teams have struck out at a higher rate than the Mets. Mets’ hitters struck out in 23.2 percent of their plate appearances in this span, which is the fifth highest mark in the league.

Cubs 6, Mets 5 (5/14/15)

OSS: Cubs come from behind to put a smile on Ron Santo’s face. Three up 1. Dexter Fowler got the scoring started with a home run in the fourth inning, with the Cubs down 4-0, and came around to score the go ahead run in the eighth on a passed ball by Mets catcher Anthony Recker. That almost seems too innocuous, probably better to qualify it as a hilariously misplayed ball by Recker...
