Headley and Sandoval’s contracts make Wright’s shine

The New York Yankees agreed to terms on a four-year, $50 million contract with veteran third baseman Chase Headley on Monday morning. Headley emerged as one of the game’s best third basemen in 2012 when he won a Silver Slugger and hit .286/.376/.498.

Featured Post: Can Mets Win With Wright As Their Top Hitter?

I’ve been having this internal debate with myself over the past few months. With so much riding on 2015, the Mets have put a huge burden on several players. While a lot will be expected of the returning Matt Harvey and the elite stable of pitchers that follow him in the rotation, so much more rides on the bats of Curtis Granderson and David Wright. Granderson has morphed into...

Even after addressing their need of right-handed hitting with the additions of Michael Cuddyer and John Mayberry Jr., the Mets still have pressing issues. David Wright and Curtis Granderson are coming off subpar seasons, and the former was also injured last year. Another key Met coming off an injury is closer Bobby...

Wondering Why Mets Opted For Cuddyer Over Morse

I don’t know if the Mets signed Michael Cuddyer just to appease David Wright. I suppose there’s some truth to that thought, but to what percentage? Was Cuddyer the only right-handed option for the Mets? Was he their best option? Yes, Cuddyer won the NL batting title two years ago, but for a team needing power, how much consideration did they give Michael Morse? Morse, at 32,...

Potential Mets’ 2015 Batting Order

Let’s assume the Mets won’t make any significant additions at the Winter Meetings, and what we have now is what we’ll get Opening Day. Given that, here’s what I see as a potential batting order: Juan Lagares, CF: In the absence of a legit leadoff hitter, the Mets would be making a gamble. Lagares has the speed and showed he can steal a base. He must improve his on-base percentage...
