Thor Allows Three Earned Runs, Looked Mortal Last Night

The ground outs to fly outs ratio was a nice sight at 8:3 and he was able to limit the...

A trade is coming

Don’t worry Mets fans, the Mets will be making additions to their roster. And these moves will be soon.  By mid-May, it seems very likely that a young pitcher will be gone and a new shortstop will be arriving. Now this trade could have been done two months ago or Stephen Drew could have been signed, but the wait will be worth it. Wilmer Flores has shown his ability to play shortstop...

The best thing for Ruben Tejada is to start Wilmer Flores

I like Ruben Tejada. However, there’s a big gulf between liking a player and thinking he should be penciled in to start 150 games. And at this point, there’s no reason to think that Tejada has earned the starting shortstop job in any way. It’s my belief that if the Mets open the season with Tejada as their starting shortstop, they are setting him up to fail. The fans consider...

Wilmer Flores should be this year’s Justin Turner

Justin Turner truly defined what a utility player actually could be last year.  He played 23 games at third base, 18 games at shortstop, 15 games at first base, and 12 games at second base.  He didn’t have as many at bats as in previous years, 200 AB, but he still managed to hit .280 for the season.  The ability to play multiple positions was a valuable asset for Collins who...

When Did Wilmer Flores Become A Good Shortstop?

Mets’ Lineup, March 12, Against St. Louis

The Mets keep looking for a shortstop, so why isn’t Wilmer Flores starting today against St. Louis? He messed up a play Tuesday, but how many as Ruben Tejada botched? It’s clear the Mets aren’t happy with Tejada and are trying to replace him. Run Flores out there for several days to get a better idea. One game doesn’t cut it.
