With the bases loaded in the...

Daily DraftKings Picks: Wednesday, Sep 17

Yesterday my Official Lineup came out blazing as Corey Kluber was dominant against the Astros and Wilmer Flores kept crushing with a two-homer, 43-point effort. Then Scott Kazmir, who was shaky but successful for his first couple innings, completely lost it and ended up posting a 1.75-point day. All-in-all, though, the Official Lineup scored 127.10 points and finished 1,358th-of...

Collins Blowing Smoke; It’s Flores’ Job To Lose

Terry Collins insists shortstop will be wide open next spring, but what else can he say? Even after Wilmer Flores homered twice and drove in six runs Tuesday night in a 9-1 rout of the Marlins, and has driven in 10 runs over the last four games, Collins is dancing the politically correct line. He has to. FLORES: Should get job. (Getty) He can’t give the job to Flores outright,...

Wilmer Flores heats up with six RBI, two home runs as Mets crush Marlins 9-1

One of the big questions for the Mets’ coming offseason is how they will fill the shortstop spot. Here in the final days of the season, Wilmer Flores has started to make a case for himself. He continued to be the hottest hitter on the roster Tuesday night with two home runs and six RBI and the Mets took down the Marlins, 9-1, before 21,602 at Citi Field. “He’s been told the...

Flores De Los Metos

Yesterday, Wilmer Flores went 3-for-4, 2 runs, 6 RBIs with his 5th and 6th homers. With David Wright hurt, Flores has been playing every day. The Mets are thankfully still able to get Ruben Tejada into their lineup. The Mets said, "We've wanted to drop Tejada, send down Tejada or trade Tejada for a nickel on a dollar, but since we can't figure out the paperwork, we...

Perchance To Dream

I’m trying to figure out of Wilmer Flores’ two HR’s and six RBI are a stepping stone to the everyday shortstop job in 2015, or a sure sign that Brad Penny should retire. Hell, it’s probably a little of both. But to see it happen was soothing … calamine lotion on arms full of mosquito bites. Maybe dreaming of a world where Flores is a lynchpin of future Mets offensive lineups...

MMO Game Recap: Mets 9, Marlins 1 (Hail Flores!)

Flores blasted a pair of homers and drove a double to the wall in a huge 3-for-4 night with three runs scored and six RBIs.

Wilmer Flores Successfully Making Routine Plays

Earlier today, the author published a post regarding rather young Mets shortstop Wilmer Flores and how — somewhat surprisingly, given basically every scouting report about him — Flores had played a mostly average shortstop over 400-plus innings. Said post included select footage — both of Flores misplaying relatively harmless ground balls and also Flores recording […]

Forget the Draft- The New York Mets Should Win Now

The New York Post’s Joel Sherman today wrote how the New York Mets can salvage their season: By losing out. Sherman believes the Mets tanking is an “unappetizing thought”-but the reality is one of a loser’s mentality. Every team in the Mets’ situation should be thinking about tanking, as unappetizing as that thought is. There are two places you want to finish: as one of...

Wilmer Flores: Not a Disaster at Shortstop Yet

The footage embedded above comes from an August 22nd game between the Mets and the Dodgers and depicts Wilmer Flores acting out what is essentially the baseball equivalent of a first-day-of-school anxiety dream. With two outs and runners at first and second, Yasiel Puig batted a mostly harmless ground ball to Flores. Instead of converting […]

Triple-A Year In Review: Las Vegas 51s

The Mets wanted their farm teams to experience winning in the postseason. So New York was judicious with September 1st call-ups, opting to promote only infielder Josh Satin and pitcher Erik Goeddel from the Triple-A Las Vegas roster, and bringing some additional players from Double-A Binghamton, like Juan Centeno and Dario Alvarez. For the Binghamton Mets, the goal was accomplished...

MMO Game Recap: Marlins 6, Mets 5

The Mets (72-79) were defeated by the Miami Marlins (73-76) tonight at Citi Field by a score of 6-5. What you should know: Jacob deGrom was fantastic again this evening, as he struck out the first eight batters to greet him to start the game, tying a major league record that was originally set by Jim Deshaies of the Houston Astros in 1986. DeGrom would strike out 13 batters altogether...

Why Not DeGrom Or D’Arnaud For NL Rookie Honors?

Why not Jacob deGrom? Or Travis d’Arnaud? Usually, the Rookie of the Year Award goes to hitters, as the writers tend to favor offense and the everyday player. When it comes to that, deGrom’s stiffest competition could come from teammate d’Arnaud, who leads NL Rookies with 13 homers and is second with 40 RBI, despite a .243 average in 102 games.

Curtis Granderson, Wilmer Flores drive in runs in 9th inning as Mets beat Rockies

Wilmer Flores continues to keep himself in the conversation for 2015. Hours after Sandy Alderson said Flores was a “absolutely,” a viable option for the Mets at shortstop next season, Flores drove in the game-winning run in the Mets 3-2 win over the Rockies at Citi Field. It was Flores’ first career walk-off RBI and capped a two-run rally off Rockies closer LaTroy Hawkins...

Murphy Will Go Back To 2B, Flores To Remain At SS

Daniel Murphy is expected to be activated from the disabled list later today after missing roughly two weeks with a calf strain. In that time, Dilson Herrera made the surprise jump from AA Binghamton and held his own at second base. He hit .243 over 37 major league at bats, adding two home runs and a triple along the way. It wasn’t quite spectacular but at just 20 years old what...

Questions The Mets Might Have Already Answered

Let’s begin the Mets’ salvage operation for September by seeing how they answered the most significant questions facing them as they entered spring training. Q: Can the Mets finish with a winning record? A: Mathematically, it’s possible as Sunday’s victory in Cincinnati has them seven games under with 19 to play. They are six games behind in the wild-card standings, but need...

Wilmer Flores Is Coming Into His Own

The hits keep on coming for Wilmer Flores and the power has been emerging too. On Friday night, the Mets de facto shortstop blasted a prodigious 431 foot home run into the second deck of Great American Ball Park. It was his third home run of the season and after his two-hit night, Flores now has 11 hits in his last 30 at-bats with a 1.040 OPS. “Some guys it takes a little time...

The meaning of Wilmer Flores

It feels like Wilmer Flores has been a Met forever. He was signed seven years ago at the age of 16 and has been much ballyhooed as the Mets best offensive prospect. He has been ranked as a top 100 prospect in all of baseball on multiple occasions and famously destroyed Triple-A over the last two seasons (162 games, 28 home runs, 143 RBI and a 903 OPS). His major league career has...

Alderson Weighs In On Offseason Strategy, Internal Options vs Free Agency

Is Matt den Dekker 2015′s Left Fielder? It’s rather funny that in my last post this morning, I speculated that the Mets lacked the financial resources and flexibility to address the left field and shortstop holes via free agency, and then I came across this quote: On whether adding a shortstop and another bat in the outfield will be priorities for the big-league club in the off...
