WILMER FLORES NEWS

Six Ace

Jacob deGrom would like you to know that you can take your fears about a sophomore slump and put them in your underwear drawer and save them for somebody else you know. Because he’s unbelievable and he subscribes not to your sophomore slump theory … although he seems a bit superstitious about the hair. And that’s okay. deGrom went seven strong innings scattering six hits with...

MMO Game Recap: Mets 5, Marlins 4 (SEVEN IN A ROW!!!)

Mets Aim To Continue Streak Behind DeGrom

It is no secret I am not a fan of the New York Mets’ batting order, but as a baseball traditionalist I know this much, you don’t screw around with a hot streak and the Mets are going after their seventh straight win tonight against Miami. That means Curtis Granderson leading off, Travis d’Arnaud batting second and Juan Lagares seventh. The Mets have to feel good about number...

MMO Game Thread: Marlins vs Mets, 7:10 PM (WPIX)

The Mets look to extend their winning streak to seven games and win their 4-game series with the Miami Marlins tonight at Citi Field. Jacob deGrom (1-1, 1.46 ERA) opposes right-hander Mat Latos (0-2, 17.36) in a 7:10 PM matchup. A win in that game would give the Mets their longest winning streak since posting eight straight victories from June 10-18, 2010. The Mets are five games...

Can Mets make playoffs with 4s up the middle?

Howie Rose on radio and Keith Hernandez on TV occasionally sprinkle into their broadcasts mentions of the board, now computer, game simulation Strat-O-Matic. Obviously both played the game a lot when they were younger. Even some ballplayers, notably Cal Ripken Jr., have admitted to playing the game on planes during their playing careers. Keith will see an outfielder not reach a catchable...

Looking At The Mets’ Fast Start

No, I can’t do it when it comes to the New York Mets. I can’t look at 7-3 and just say, “hey, that’s great.” I certainly can’t say they’ll keep this pace, because playing .700 ball would be incredible. Nobody plays .700 ball. Now that the Mets are playing at that clip, I am thinking a lot better than .500. Isn’t everybody? But, I’m like the man grilling over coals...

Mets Game Wrap: Offense Sparks Mets

All season we’ve heard about the Mets’ weak offense, especially with them not having David Wright. Dillon Gee, who worked through the fifth inning for a major league leading 48 straight starts, wasn’t effective, but was picked up the heretofore struggling Mets’ offense, lead by Wilmer Flores, who clubbed a three-run homer; Lucas Duda, who had three hits including two doubles...

Mets Game Thread: Flores Rocks The Joint

There’s nothing like a three-run homer to change the complexion of a game, and that’s what Wilmer Flores just did for the Mets. Couldn’t feel happier for him. Had a chance to speak with him Opening Day. He’s quiet and unassuming, and struggling to make it despite the pressure. He was ripped several times by his general manager over the winter; literally Sandy Alderson made...

April 16, Mets Batting Order Vs. Marlins

The Mets will be going after their fifth straight victory tonight against the Miami Marlins. Not once last season did the Mets win five in a row, and only three times did they win as many as four straight games. The Mets were 11-8 against the Marlins last season, including 6-3 at Citi Field. Here is the Mets’ batting order tonight: Curtis Granderson, RF Travis d’Arnaud, C Lucas...

Recapping Wilmer Flores’ rough first week as the starting shortstop

Heading into 2015 the Mets are full of expectations: growth in the pitching staff, the development of a core offense, and maybe even a playoff berth. There have been interesting developments through the first seven games including the fact that the Mets are only scoring runs when an error occurs, Jon Niese delivered his “first bad” start in ages, and Wilmer Flores has thus...

Alderson Says Not Bailing On Flores

While I don’t always agree with Mets GM Sandy Alderson, I liked what he did today when he expressed confidence in struggling shortstop Wilmer Flores. The master of the deadpan obvious, Alderson said of Flores’ first week that, “It hasn’t been super,” noting three errors and a .158 batting average. Even so, Alderson didn’t put on notice the player he has frequently criticized...

MMO Players of the Week: One Week Down, 26 To Go

I’m… not quite sure what to make of this yet. Six games have been played and the Mets stand even at 3-3. As the way it seems to be happening in the NL East, good teams are playing poorly and bad teams are playing unexpectedly average. The World Series shoe-in Nationals, who are 2-4, almost got swept by the MLB-worst Phillies, who stand at 3-3. The Marlins dream team is currently...

Do you have faith in Wilmer Flores and Juan Lagares?

In the offseason the Mets showed a lot of faith in Wilmer Flores and Juan Lagares. They showed faith in Flores by not acquiring a shortstop to compete with him for the starting job. And they showed faith in Lagares by trading away Matt den Dekker, the best choice to play center field if Lagares was ineffective. Remember just one year earlier, the Mets acquired Chris Young...

Flores Makes No Excuses After Rough Night Defensively At SS

Shortstop Wilmer Flores made no excuses for the pair of errors that each led to an unearned run in the Mets 5-3 loss to the Braves on Friday night. “It’s not a good feeling when your pitcher is making the right pitches and getting the ground balls and you’re not making the plays,” Flores said. “I’m not going to make excuses. Not going to start making them now. Just made...

Kevin Long Appears To Be Making A Significant Impact

It’s hard not to notice how ferocious the Mets offense has been this Spring, putting up runs at a pace we haven’t seen from this team in many years in spring training or the regular season. I think it’s too simplistic to just brush this off under the guise that spring training stats don’t mean anything. Production at this pace and this late in camp is nothing to be sneezed...
