With David Wright out, who’s on third?

“Who’s on third?” is a question that’s been asked by Mets fans over the years as much as Abbot and Costello.  According to the UltimateMets database, 153 Mets players have manned the hot corner since the team’s 1962 inception.  Make that 154 while we wait for the webmaster to add backup catcher turned emergency third baseman Anthony Recker to the list. Recker was not...

The all-defense Mets lineup

Defense is consistently overlooked when assessing how good a ball club is, especially when the team is known for their offense. Cinderella teams over the past few seasons have all had above-average defensive players contributing in the field. Including the 2014 Royals, 2013 Pirates, 2012 Athletics, and most notably the 2011 Rays. None of these teams were anywhere near the top five...

Why not use Wilfredo Tovar?

Last season, the Mets were hoping that Ruben Tejada would bounce back into a .280 hitter and a solid defensive player. The defense was not terrible, as he had a .984 fielding percentage, and was posted a 3 in defensive runs saved above average according to baseballreference.com. Sadly, the offensive side did not improve by much, as Tejada hit .237. Manager Terry Collins is trying...

How badly do the Mets need to upgrade SS and LF?

Heading into the offseason, the chorus that’s been beaten to death by pundits, fans, and pretty much everyone, is that the Mets need to upgrade at both shortstop and left field going into 2015 if they want to compete. The consensus seems to be that what the Mets got out of those two positions in 2014 was somewhere between “the worst thing ever seen” and “the worst thing ever...
