Curtis Granderson, the latest unlucky Mets Opening Day cleanup hitter

On Opening Day, the Mets had big free agent acquisition Curtis Granderson hit cleanup. He started his Mets career 0-for-5 with three strikeouts. And it hasn’t gotten much better since. Last night, Granderson heard Mets’ fans boo him, as he twice came up empty with multiple runners on base in the late innings. With runners on first and second in the eighth inning, he weakly...

Carlos Torres: The steady rollin’ man

“I’m a steady rollin’ man. I roll both night and day. I’m a steady rollin’ man. I roll both night and day.” —Robert Johnson So far, so good. At least as far as Carlos Torres goes this year. He has maintained a very effective approach to hitters throughout all his appearances out the New York Mets...

Can Daisuke Matsuzaka cut it in the bullpen?

As the New York Mets came back to Queens to start their 10-game homestand last night, the team brought up Daisuke Matsuzaka on Friday while reassigning John Lannan. With the Mets having five healthy starters (save for Jenrry Mejia’s blister issues and Bartolo Colon’s back problems), the only chance where Matsuzaka can make his mark with the club is in the bullpen. It’s not...

Breaking: Ike Davis traded to Pittsburgh Pirates

After 18 months of teasing, the New York Mets have finally broken up with  Ike Davis, sending him to the Pittsburgh Pirates for minor league reliever Zach Thornton and a player to be named later.  According to CBS’s Jon Heyman, the PTBNL is “significant”, so there’s that. Right now, this trade looks like nothing to celebrate but not necessarily a loss.  The biggest part...

Why a struggling Valverde still makes the Mets win

Important caveat, 15 games is a good hitting streak, not a good base to establish trends. Warning aside, something interesting is happening with the 2014 New York Mets. A seemingly terrible omen in the form of an opening series sweep at the hands of the Washington Nationals has been settled for now with an 8-7 season record. In those first three games the starting pitching had a...

Lucas Duda swings, Jeurys Familia’s opponents don’t, Anthony Recker wins

One of the unsung stars of the early going for the Mets has been the offensive production of Lucas Duda. Slowed by an injury in Spring Training, Duda has also suffered somewhat from management’s refusal to solve the three-headed first baseman issue. But when he’s got on the field, Duda has been a productive offensive player. Among those with at least 20 PA, Duda leads the...

Enjoy Eric Young Jr’s great start for however long it lasts

My strong preference was for the Mets to sign Shin-Soo Choo this past offseason. However, Sandy Alderson did not want to put all of his eggs into one basket and instead spent $32.25 million on Bartolo Colon, Curtis Granderson and Chris Young. While it will be interesting to see the value the Mets get for their free agent dollars versus what Choo puts up, it will also be interesting...

Jenrry Mejia And The Mets’ Starters Recover At Their Favorite Spa

The Arizona Diamondbacks were established in 1998, a newly minted National League expansion team. They have had their fair share of success in a pretty short time frame, winning the NL West in only their second year of existence, winning a World Championship two years later – wrecking the Yankees’ latest dynasty in the process – and reaching the post-season three more times...

Organizational Depth Spurring on Mets

Although sometimes not in particular pretty fashion, the New York Mets have been getting it done of late while winning eight of their last 12 games. Part of the reason for their winning ways has been the play of the bench and the call-ups they have relied on from Las Vegas. Aside from the sweep to begin the season at the hands of the Washington Nationals, the Mets have turned on...

The future of the Mets bullpen

It’s been a very common issue with the Mets over the past number of seasons and this year is no different. The team has good starting pitching, along with a good lineup. But it’s the bullpen that continues to worry Mets fans all over. The year didn’t start off well, as Bobby Parnell went down with an injury that required surgery and will keep him out of the 2014 season. Vic...

Is it time to give Travis d’Arnaud a break?

Travis d’Arnaud is beginning to get hot, but he is still having a terrible start to his first season in the majors.  As of Wednesday morning, d’Arnaud is hitting .154 with one home run.  This does not mean that d’Arnaud should be traded or released, but the Mets do need to find a viable catcher and bench d’Arnaud for the time being. So how will the Mets get a catcher good...

Mets Card of the Week: 2014 Matt Harvey

2014 TOPPS MINI DIE-CUT MATT HARVEY Episode 7F16 of The Simpsons is a classic entry from 1991 named “Oh Brother, Where Art Thou?”– a title cribbed from Preston Sturges’ 1941 comedy Sullivan’s Travels, and later appropriated by the Coen brothers for their Depression-era riff on Homer’s “Odyssey.” In the episode, Homer (the Springfieldian one, not the ancient Greek...

Time is running out for Eric Young, Jr.

Eric Young, Jr. has been auditioning for a starting outfielder position since the 2014 season began. He was given this opportunity for two reasons; Terry Collins likes to have speed at the top of the order, and Chris Young was hurt. Young just started a rehab assignment in Las Vegas, where he promptly hit two home runs and drove in five on his way to a 5-5 night on Sunday, then added...

The Mets Appear To Be Doing It With Mirrors

NEWSFLASH: so far, the Mets’ offense stinks. As a team, they’re hitting .218, good for dead last in the National League. Team slugging percentage is .333, also 15th. As far as hits go, they again bring up the rear with 97 – and none of their pitchers has a safety as yet. Team OBP is .292, next-to-last. Their OPS+ is 72. Not 172, just 72.

Mets Minors: Rafael Montero impressive in Vegas

The Mets have quite the collection of starting pitchers.  There is not much that anyone could complain about in the Las Vegas starting rotation, but it seems that Rafael Montero deserves additional praise.  Through his first three starts, he’s been the picture of an “Ace”. What Makes an “Ace”? A Low ERA – Montero’s ERA is 2.60 after 17.1 IP A Low WHIP – Montero’s...

Mets you’ve forgotten about: Glendon Rusch

April 27, 2000.  On a Thursday afternoon getaway day, the Mets were set to face off against the Cincinnati Reds in the rubber game of a three game series.  Steve Parris would toe the rubber for the Reds, and the Mets would send lefty Glendon Rusch to the hill in front of the “B” squad. Soon-to-be eight-year-old Joe Vasile sat down in the loge section along the third base line...

Curtis Granderson and Juan Lagares exemplify small sample sizes

The Mets’ 2014 season is a mere 11 games deep, and the team sits at five wins to their six losses. That’s hardly enough time to gauge where the team will end up at the end of the season, though topping out at 73 or 74 wins at their current pace is certainly within the realm of reason. The team could defy expectations and win 85 or more games or completely implode and win less...

Mets get first-hand experience against all-righty bullpen

Generally speaking, Interleague games are not my favorites. My preference is for a balanced schedule and you simply cannot have that with Interleague games. Be that as it may, the last two games against the Angels have been fun, even if they have both been four-hour affairs that required extra innings. There’s the joy of seeing Mike Trout, the chance to once again see Albert...
