Troy Tulowitzi is not the Mets’ only trade target

Troy Tulowitzki is the best shortstop in baseball and he’s playing for a bad team that may finally be willing to trade him. He’d be a defensive upgrade over Wilmer Flores and he’d be the best hitter on this Mets team. A gigantic contract, long injury history and (suspected) high trade demands make him less of a slam dunk trade candidate, but for the sake of this article –...

While Mets Offense Flat-Lines, Front Office Sits On Their Hands

“Develop the pitching, buy the bats.” That was a recurring theme during what has been a five year rebuild. It was drilled into our heads. And yet here we are, with a pitching rotation and bullpen packed with some of the most elite arms in the league, and the offense is sputtering. The team is at the precipice of this enduring run of championship baseball they’ve been telling...

However, here’s the latest. GM Sandy Alderson told reporters before Tuesday’s game that it could be 10-14 days before David Wright returns from the disabled list. “I don’t think you can expect...

Mets Matters: No Offensive Help In Sight

Mets GM Sandy Alderson said he’s not pursuing immediate trade options to improve the offense, and instead will wait to see what spark David Wright and Travis d’Arnaud might provide when they come off the disabled list. No surprise in that stance. Alderson said neither player would be activated soon. “I don’t think you can expect [Wright] back sooner than a week, maybe 10...

Mets Game Thread: Harvey Against Cardinals

In his last start, the Mets’ Matt Harvey attacked the free-swingers of the Chicago Cubs and consequently pitched ahead in the count. The Cardinals’ team he faces tonight are more patient, so it will be interesting to see if their plan is to run up his pitch count. Harvey has been strong all season and hasn’t given up more than four earned runs in any start. Harvey (5-1, 2.31...

David Wright Still Not Ready For Baseball Activities

Mets’ Pitiful Numbers Tell The Story

On April 23, after the Mets wrapped up their 11th straight victory to move ten games over .500 and build a comfortable eight-game lead over the Washington Nationals, all seemed right in their world. They won because their starting pitching overcame injuries to David Wright and Travis d’Arnaud; a lack of consistent power from Lucas Duda, Curtis Granderson and Michael Cuddyer; and...

Fools Gold (And Fools Blue And Fools Orange)

Perhaps now we’ll see that Opening Day victories eleven game winning streaks in April don’t mean a damned thing. Perhaps the people that overly celebrate the following: Mets       1-0 Yankees 0-1 … will get their heads on straight and realize that “taking back the city” is of no consequence and is not deserving of a banner or a wall plaque or a parade. But probably...

Matthew Cerrone on today’s Mets lineup

Yep, we’re looking at Tejada at third base and Wilmer Flores at shortstop, together, both on the left side of the infield. Take it in, everyone, let that burn in to your brains for a bit! Also, I see we’ve returned to the once obligatory Second Baseman Must Hit Second era of making out the lineup card. Frankly, at this point, what’s the difference? Terry may as well switch...

Comparing the Mets to the #1 movie in America

The Mets are the number one team in the National League East, while Avengers: Age of Ultron is the number one movie in America. But if you think that is where the similarities stop between the team and the movie…you have a lot to learn. Not only do the Mets have two players, David Wright and Noah Syndergaard, who have nicknames relevant to the characters in the film, but the...

On the Mets offensive woes and surviving on a win streak

The Mets’ loss to the Phillies last night set their record at 18-11. They no longer sit atop baseball, which was nice but ultimately temporary. They still hold the top spot in the NL East, though, a situation both unexpected and welcome. The surging Nationals, 8-2 in their last ten games to the Mets’ 4-6, are pushing to overtake them. The good feelings garnered by the Mets...

Mets poor offense a threat to playoff hopes

Going into the season, the Mets were generally viewed somewhat favorably as at least Wild Card contenders, which is something that hasn’t been said about them in a very long time. No one reasonably expected them to win the division because 100 wins was arguably a reasonable expectation for the mighty Nats. Early on, the story has been very different though and as of this writing...

Reading The Murphy Tea Leaves

The thing that stands out about the recent Daniel Murphy trade rumors is the lack of denials from the New York Mets. None. Sure, scouts look at players all the time and we shouldn’t be surprised San Francisco was in over the weekend to look at Murphy. It stands to reason considering the Giants have a Pablo Sandoval size hole at third base. It is no coincidence Murphy was moved...
