Spring Training is winding down and we approach the regular season with, despite the sprinklings of bad news, what amounts to the most optimism in Queens in what seems like forever. Matt Harvey and Jacob deGrom are dominating hitters, David Wright looks to be getting back to his old self, and the signing of Michael Cuddyer is looking like a solid move so far.

Kevin Long Appears To Be Making A Significant Impact

It’s hard not to notice how ferocious the Mets offense has been this Spring, putting up runs at a pace we haven’t seen from this team in many years in spring training or the regular season. I think it’s too simplistic to just brush this off under the guise that spring training stats don’t mean anything. Production at this pace and this late in camp is nothing to be sneezed...

What’s Collins Really Thinking With His Lineup?

Here’s why I have trouble taking the Mets seriously at times. In today’s game against St. Louis, manager Terry Collins plans to bat Matt Harvey eighth. Theoretically, it would enable him to bat Juan Lagares ninth followed by Curtis Granderson and David Wright. COLLINS: What’s he really thinking? “I know in our market it’s a big issue. It’ll be a headline, back-page...

Wright Okay With Moving Out Of No. 3 Spot In Order

Mike Vorkunov of the NJ.com asked the question today, “Would David Wright move out of his No. 3 spot in Mets lineup?” While Wright has pretty much owned the No. 3 spot over the last five years, the Mets captain is not averse to making a switch if that’s what the team wants. Wright has batted their three times this spring. But an occasional migration from the No. 3 spot in...

David Wright lavishes praise on Jacob deGrom

Wright, who describes deGrom as “one of my favorite people to be around,” praises his teammate for being serious but not taking himself seriously: “[Jacob] stays loose and you can get on him in a joking way and is very receptive to learning and getting better and that’s what you want out of a teammate, someone who isn’t complacent about winning the Rookie of the Year and...

Is A Potential Power Surge In David Wright’s Future?

It may only be spring training, but David Wright is starting to look like his old self again. In Sunday’s game against the Yankees, Wright launched an opposite field home run off of CC Sabathia.

Still Plenty Of Questions As We Near Opening Day

I’ve watched Mets baseball games since 1962. Before every season has started there have been questions about the team that the upcoming season would have to answer. However, in thinking about the 2015 team I am stunned by how many questions I have about this team – the one that promises to make a “playoff run”. Let’s run through them and you’ll see that they are numerous...

Met’s Chances

With just 2 appearances in the playoffs this century, the New York Mets have not exactly been talked about as World Series contenders too often. However, there is a lot of buzz surrounding this franchise as they get ready for 2015.

Why Is This Man Smiling?

I can’t remember a spring training day where the Mets had a split squad day … and both games were on television at the same time. This was an excuse to use the picture in picture on the television. There was a lot to keep track of. The big studs in the lineup were in Jupiter to face the Cardinals. But Dillon Gee and Rafael Montero were back in Port St. Lucie to go against the...

David Wright’s valid reaction to unauthorized snack time

David Wright’s overblown reaction to Noah Syndergaard eating his lunch inside rather than being on the bench with his teammates was a big story for the wrong reasons. It was one of those funny little anecdotes that gets tossed around in the fairly calm early days of spring training. Unless there is a major injury or a player runs his mouth on talk radio (cough, Bryce Harper...
