In-House Options Remain The Best Bet For Mets Offense

If you told most Mets’ fans during the long, cold, winter recess between October and the start of spring training that halfway through the upcoming season their team would sit within a few games of first place in the division, most would be thrilled. To have simply achieved a legitimate level of competitiveness following six consecutive losing seasons should do much to lift the...

New York Mets looking at Jean Segura?

Maybe the Milwaukee Brewers have been actively shopping shortstop Jean Segura behind the scenes, but given the Crew’s low team performance and the fact there are at least two NL teams with shortstop needs, well….

DeGrom Doesn’t Erase Issues Surrounding Mets

As great as Jacob deGrom was for the Mets Thursday, one lone start is not enough to create the perception of them as a playoff team. DeGrom’s eight scoreless innings enabled the Mets to beat Milwaukee, 2-0, at Miller Park, but did nothing to diminish the growing number of questions swirling around his team. DE GROM: Brilliant Thursday. (AP) The Mets were 36-30 when their road...

New York Mets: Sandy Alderson and his New York mess

Recent road games for the New York Mets have been uneventful for the metropolitan franchise. Within the last seven road outings this month, the Mets trudged to a sloppy 0-7 record as they fell to second place in the National League East, behind the Washington Nationals. At the moment, a 36-37 record is not something to be worried about, but as the team heads into July with match...

Mets Considering Shifting Flores To Second Base

According to Kristie Ackert of the Daily News, the New York Mets are now considered moving Wilmer Flores from shortstop to second base when Daniel Murphy returns from the disabled list this weekend. “The Mets sources pointedly said that this move was discussed not because Flores at shortstop wasn’t working, but because he played well at second base last year.” “He played...

Featured Post: The Era Of Half-Measures Needs to End

Suffice it to say it’s been a rough month for the New York Mets. I’ll spare you all the negative rants about losing streaks, poor offensive rankings, and a disintegrating run differential.

Current and historical disabled list info for the Mets

A favorite ploy of managers and athletes is to use the phrase, “I don’t want to use injuries as an excuse.” Of course they immediately go on to do just that. Injuries are part of the game, we all get that. But at some point, it would be nice if the Mets weren’t hanging around the league leaders in time missed to injury. Here’s this year’s list of the walking wounded...

Mets Can’t Count On Wright’s Return

When Mets GM Sandy Alderson said he would consider trading for strictly a third baseman, he might as well have said he’s not expecting David Wright to return any time soon, or at all this year.
