LUCAS DUDA NEWS

Mets manager Collins does his own 'No crying in baseball' rant

Ah, Wednesday. Hell of a night for the Mets. Lucas Duda blasted three homers, all for nothing in a 7-3 loss to the Padres.  Fans got riled up over a report that the Mets were trading for Brewers outfielder Carlos Gomez, then even more riled up when the deal fell through. Then, even more riled up that shortstop Wilmer Flores, who was crying on the field when he learned he reportedly...

What is happening with Lucas Duda’s production?

Mets first baseman Lucas Duda’s season has been enigmatic. An electric start appeared to prove his breakout 2014 was no fluke, but with Travis d’Arnaud and David Wright both on the disabled list, his production quickly fell. So what should one make of Duda’s season and recent power surge? Duda has produced a .771 on-base plus slugging (OPS) in 2015, more similar to his 2013...

Superheroes And Superdopes

Mike Stobe/Getty Images I don’t want to bury the lead here. And the lead to me is Noah Syndergaard’s fantastic outing on Tuesday night against the Padres in a 4-0 victory. Syndergaard was perfect through six innings, and gave up three hits, no walks, and struck out nine batters in eight innings of work. Lucas Duda hit a two run bomb in the first for all the Mets needed, and...

Gut Reaction: Mets 4 Padres 0 (7/27/15)

Jenrry Mejia’s stupidity has cost the Mets his services for the foreseeable future. The Mets will not be reacquainted with Jose Reyes, nor will they be acquiring his new teammate, Carlos Gonzales. David Wright took a few tentative grounders on the Citi Field dirt. But none of that matters tonight. Let the rest of the National League take notice: the hammer has been dropped....

Gut Reaction: Mets 15, Dodgers 2 (7/25/15)

Wow, just wow. For just the second time since the All-Star break the Mets scored more than three runs, and boy did they ever score more than three runs. The 15 the Mets put on the board Saturday were just four less than the entire amount they cobbled together in their first two series back from the break. It was an onslaught of magnificent proportions. But like a old man sucking...

Gut Reaction: Mets 4, Diamondbacks 2 (7/11/15)

Matt Harvey still has a minor home run problem. The answer, it appears, is more home runs. Those solution homers came from the home team for a change, as Harvey hit his first career round-tripper to drive in the winning runs. Lucas Duda hit his second home run in as many games for the first time since May 29th, and for only the second time this season. Even Ruben Tejada got in on...
