First Base Will Be Unaffected By Friday’s Roster Decision

Andrew Brown: Dead man walking? GM Sandy Alderson wouldn’t say which player is likely to depart when the team activates outfielder Chris Young from the disabled list on Friday, but we did learn that the Mets first base situation will be unaffected.

Organizational Depth Spurring on Mets

Although sometimes not in particular pretty fashion, the New York Mets have been getting it done of late while winning eight of their last 12 games. Part of the reason for their winning ways has been the play of the bench and the call-ups they have relied on from Las Vegas. Aside from the sweep to begin the season at the hands of the Washington Nationals, the Mets have turned on...

Michael BaronKirk Nieuwenhuis was the beneficiary of the Juan Lagares injury, coming back to the big club last night in a big way. He smacked a homer among his three hits and knocked in three runs to boot. It was a good night for a guy who started in the minors this year after the Mets spent the offseason bringing in Curtis Granderson and Chris Young. If he keeps this up, however...

Juan Lagares the Odd Man Out?

Juan Lagares has been the New York Mets’ most lethal hitter thus far. Before the season there was speculation he’d be a bench player due to his ineptitude at the plate – he’s always been known for his stellar play defensively, but, supposedly, his weak bat would keep him from playing every day. But after being named the starter in center field on Opening Day, Lagares hasn’t...

Time is running out for Eric Young, Jr.

Eric Young, Jr. has been auditioning for a starting outfielder position since the 2014 season began. He was given this opportunity for two reasons; Terry Collins likes to have speed at the top of the order, and Chris Young was hurt. Young just started a rehab assignment in Las Vegas, where he promptly hit two home runs and drove in five on his way to a 5-5 night on Sunday, then added...

MMO Morning Grind: And So It Begins…

Good Morning, Mets fans! Our Mets got a nice win last night. Zack Wheeler looked pretty solid, Lucas Duda was great, and Daniel Murphy turned into a Gold Glover for a night. But I have something a bit more troubling on my mind this morning, and that is the Injury Bug. Us Mets fans know all about the Injury Bug by now… with this team, it’s not a question of If, but When, How,...

Enjoy The Final Days Of The Terry Collins Leadoff Experiment

One of the things you have to love about baseball, and it’s something I’ve grown to appreciate as I’ve gotten older, is how often the game will reverse what was essentially a bad decision to begin with. While an imperfect game at its heart, baseball has this beautiful course-correcting nature about it, and given enough time even the worst decisions eventually eradicate themselves...

Early thoughts on the New York Mets

The New York Mets have started the 2014 season with a record of 5-7. Their record could be worse after getting swept by the Washington Nationals in their first series. They went on to win their next two series 2-1 vs the Cincinnati Reds and Atlanta Braves. The Mets dropped their next series after a brutal 14-2 loss Sunday vs the Los Angeles Angels. Here are some early thoughts on...

Lagares Continues To Prove He Belongs

Juan Lagares has certainly been showing Terry Collins and Sandy Alderson that he deserves to be playing every day and that his permanent spot in the lineup should remain unchanged when Chris Young is ready to come off the disabled list. Yes, it is still early in the season and it’s still a small sample size – but at this point, he has been the Mets best everyday player. We all...

An Early Loss Gives The Mets A Clue About Their Future

The 2014 season is all of eight games old. The Mets are 3-5, having been humiliated at home by the presumptive NL East champ Nationals and gained a measure of redemption vs. the Reds. That homestand was marred by ineffective hitting and woefully sub-par bullpen work. These themes had already been beaten to death in the blogosphere and by the MSM alike by the time the team’s plane...
