It’s Time to End the Ruben Tejada Era at Shortstop

Since the beginning of the 2013 MLB season there have been exactly seven shortstops to amass at least 250 plate appearances and had their services be worth a negative WAR value.  Of those seven shortstops, two are currently on the Mets active roster.  The Magnificent 7 are as follows: Adeiny Hechavarria: 640 PA,  -1.4 WAR Eduardo Nunez: 340 PA,  -1.4 WAR Ruben Tejada: 272 PA...

MMO Players of the Week: An Encore Performance and a Hook from Hell?

This week in Mets baseball was just like any other: stagnant offense, average defense and bi-polar pitching. At the close of week two, it became apparent that more than one player was going to have to hit consistently for this team to experience constant success and reach that seemingly astronomical 90-win goal. However, despite the up and down pattern we have been seeing from this...

MMO Morning Grind: What To Do With Q?

Good morning, Mets fans! Another crazy game last night. Why do the Mets always do this to us? I know I’m not the only one who actually expected the unthinkable to happen… but once Jose Valverde threw ball 3 to Erick Aybar and the guys in the SNY truck cut to Raul Ibañez looming on deck,  I said “Ibañez will probably hit a home run” out loud… 2 minutes later, well...

Dugout Digest – dominance

I don’t make much of regular season matchups between two teams, but the Braves simply own the Nationals. Atlanta is 4-1 against Washington this year, handing the Nationals all four of their losses so far in the 2014 campaign. Last season, the Braves spanked their divisional rivals 13-6 during the regular season en route to an NL East title, including going 7-2 at Nationals Park...

The Mets Will Have A Very Good Bench in 2014

“Basically, the Mets have a strong bench. Unfortunately, it’s starting.” – Sports Illustrated, June 2, 1980. Such was the narrative when the Mets surprised everybody that year by flirting with .500 in mid-June. That gritty, gutty bunch warranted a feature in the leading national sporting publication of the time, on the verge of having a walk-off win worthy of 1969. The...

Playing In Las Vegas A Good Idea

The New York Mets haven’t had the best working relationships with their minor league affiliates over the years, moving from Tidewater, to Norfolk, to Buffalo, and now Las Vegas. Much of the problem, especially with Buffalo, was not doing much to promote those affiliates. The perception with Buffalo, and now Las Vegas, is those cities were merely pit stops until somebody offered...

The 2013 Mets and difficult plays

Yesterday morning my colleague Spencer Manners introduced a new fielding data set, Inside Edge Fielding, that was unveiled this week at FanGraphs. This new data breaks down each play a player has the opportunity to make into six categories based on the difficulty of successfully making the play. The category titles are pretty self-explanatory. For example, the Impossible category...

Sun Spotted Dicks

It happens every year, yet it takes me by surprise every time. For two straight days, the SNY feed left for about 10-15 minutes. On Tuesday, I missed Curtis Granderson's first home run, and the feed came back just in time for me to watch Anthony Seratelli and Omar Quintanilla fail with the bases loaded. Today, the feed went dark again, and came back just in time for Reed Johnson...

Photo Courtesy Of @Lets86ItMets position players will officially report to spring training today, despite the fact that nearly everyone has already done so.  In fact, the only two players who are yet to arrive are Omar Quintanilla and Wilfredo Tovar.  They are likely to draw the ire of Mets skipper, Terry Collins, who prefers everyone to be in camp early.  Nonetheless, for the...

Mets Leave The Door Open On Drew

As spring training nears, so to does a resolution of the Stephen Drew soap opera.  Drew remains the only available upgrade to the Mets shortstop needs and he could come by way of a pretty team-friendly deal.  Still it has been reported in the past that the Mets don't envision Queens as his most likely destination.  The Mets have gone as far as saying publicly that Ruben Tejada...

And Now Some Free Consumer Advice

I get rustled over a lot of little things when it comes to this team. For example: Sandy Alderson telling a Social Studies class that Bartolo Colon could be the Opening Day starter ... which is classic Mets in the sense that they'll sign a somewhat cheap replacement and then put him in a prime time position to save the world (see: Gary Sheffield as the Mets' cleanup hitter...
