I have no idea what Ken Rosenthal was talking about earlier, but according to the Mets Michael Cuddyer feels great and could begin playing in rehab games next week. * * * * * * * * * * * As the Mets continue to explore outfield options, I couldn’t help noticing something that Ken […]
As the Mets continue to explore outfield options, I couldn’t help noticing something that Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports just reported. Rosenthal basically said that the team has some concerns that outfielder Michael Cuddyer “may not be back.” I thought that was kind of odd because I remember reading just a few days ago that […]
After weeks of speculation, the Mets finally pulled the trigger on Friday and summoned top prospect Michael Conforto from Double-A.

In the words of the immortal Gary Cohen: “It has happened.” (I wonder how Gare feels about his organic declaration of joy being used sarcastically to highlight the Mets foibles.) The Mets finally put Michael Cuddyer on the disabled/deceased list and brought up hitting prospect Michael Conforto. Anybody is an upgrade over a cadaver, but Conforto is actually a halfway decent prospect...

Limited to 49 games this season, Cuddyer is hitting...

While many were fawning over the acquisition of Michael Cuddyer during the past offseason, someone wrote this: So, we’re left rooting for Cuddyer to ignore Father Time and remain productive, ignore Mother Nature and stay healthy, ignore the ghost of outfield Lucas Duda and be passable defensively all while not being swayed in moving from the hitter’s paradise of Coors Field...

Before reverting to Eeyore mode, I'll give the Mets some well-deserved praise for hanging tough through 18 innings to defeat what many consider to be the best team in baseball. The Mets are trying, at least. And now, back to Eoyore mode.Trying? Trying my patience, and that of everyone else watching this team (except, apparently, the front office). 25 men left on base, tying a franchise...

All season, the New York Mets have been rumored to be potential trade partners with the Milwaukee Brewers, as it makes perfect sense.
