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...

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

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...

Backed By Two Chris Young Homers, Montero Stellar Again

Concerns Mounting As Mets Offensive Woes Continue

After Wednesday’s 4-3 loss to the Atlanta Braves, the Mets are hitting .190 as a club and have struck out 79 times through eight games. “The issue is, no matter what the count is, we’re not doing any damage with pitches,” manager Terry Collins said. “We’re hitting groundballs to short.

Should Juan Lagares play every day?

At 25 years old, Juan Lagares is coming into his own. Initially drafted at 17 years old as a shortstop, he was converted to an outfielder, and has been in the New York Mets organization for quite a long time. Since joining the major league squad in 2013, much has been made about the potential this exciting young player possesses. If early results are any indicator, 2014 may be the...

MMO Players of the Week: The Unlikely Heroes

Opening week for the New York Mets certainly did not go as planned: bullpen woes, absent offense, game-changing injuries, silly defensive blunders and questionable managerial decisions all contributed to a rather frustrating 2-4 start. As most of the team becomes acclimated to their new teammates, however, some players are taking it upon themselves to rise above expectations early...

Can the Mets win with so many strikeouts?

According to ESPN, the 2014 Mets have struck out 53 times over their first five games of the season. That’s a new team record, shattering the previous record of 44 strikeouts over their first five games in 1968. The high strikeout totals shouldn’t be a surprise to Mets fans. They were tied with the Braves in 2013 for third-highest team strikeouts in the MLB with 1,384. That was...
