Gut Reaction: Mets 6, Phillies 3 (5/25/15)

Bartolo Colon pitched a quality start for the first time since May 5th and the Mets received home runs from Lucas Duda, Michael Cuddyer and Wilmer Flores to push past the lowly Phillies. I never get tired of saying “lowly Phillies”. Cuddyer and Flores in particular needed to step up to Terry Collins’ call-to-arms after Sunday’s brutal loss and sweep at the hands of the Pirates...

Mets Minors: Gavin Cecchini continues to impress offensively

The most unappreciated prospect for the Mets right now is Gavin Cecchini. It seems odd to type that since most of my comments since the day the Mets drafted him have been less than flattering. But the simple truth is that since the end of last season, Cecchini has been putting up tremendous numbers that are not a fluke. Cecchini got an undeserved promotion to Hi-A last year after...

Keeping Daniel Murphy would be wise

Time and time again, Daniel Murphy’s name seems to bring a feeling of frustration amongst Mets fans, as there have been plenty of moments on the basepaths and on the field that make you wonder what you just witnessed. Murphy has been the second baseman for the Mets over the past four seasons, and the Mets have Dilson Herrera coming up through the minors, and he should be ready...

Gut Reaction: Pirates 8, Mets 2 (5/23/15)

Matt Harvey didn’t have it today. He allowed seven runs, the most in any game of his career, and the Mets continue their slide due to up and down pitching, bad defense on the left side of the infield, and an offense that now ranks second only to the lowly Phillies for the lowest team OPS in baseball. The Mets have also grounded into the fourth-most double plays this year, partially...

Poll: What should the Mets do to improve the offense?

Thru games of May 22, the Mets rank 15 in the the 16-team National League with a 3.70 runs per game average. They’ve scored two runs or fewer 14 times and only twice this season have they scored more than seven runs in a game. Michael Cuddyer bats cleanup most nights and he has a .664 OPS. Everyone agrees he needs to bat elsewhere but no one has any idea who should hit fourth...

Does Sandy Alderson really want Terry Collins to succeed?

As someone who has read more than two dozen books on the Kennedy Assassination it could be said that I am somewhat disposed to seeing conspiracies even where they don’t exist. One of the other sports teams I follow is the New York Jets (yes, I can really pick them). For those not familiar with their recent history here’s a quick overview. A few years ago the team’s owner...

Gut Reaction: Pirates 4, Mets 1 (5/22/15)

The Mets ran into a buzzsaw named Gerrit Cole and lost the opening game of the series to the Pirates, 4-1, Friday night. Cole pitched 8.1 innings and hit 99 mph in the ninth. Noah Syndergaard showed flashes of dominance, recording the first four outs via strikeout. But he couldn’t keep up with Cole. He also didn’t get a ton of help from his defense, including himself. Syndergaard...

Troy Tulowitzi is not the Mets’ only trade target

Troy Tulowitzki is the best shortstop in baseball and he’s playing for a bad team that may finally be willing to trade him. He’d be a defensive upgrade over Wilmer Flores and he’d be the best hitter on this Mets team. A gigantic contract, long injury history and (suspected) high trade demands make him less of a slam dunk trade candidate, but for the sake of this article –...

Hansel Robles needs a bigger role in the bullpen

Since his call up from Triple-A Las Vegas on April 25th, Mets reliever Hansel Robles has proven to be deserving of a spot in a major league bullpen.  For the most part he has come in in low-leverage situations and has excelled. He is striking out 10.57 batters-per-nine, and issuing 2.35 walks-per-nine.  Robles throws gas, averaging 95.3 miles per hour with the fastball, paired...

Should the Mets entertain offers for Juan Lagares?

The question plaguing the Mets right now is: How do we get more offense? The company line is to wait for the injured players to come back and hope that Michael Cuddyer reverts back to 2013. The rest of us aren’t so hip to that plan. Often times we try to package our trash for other teams’ stars and that’s not too good, either. But what if we put something worthwhile on...

Gut Reaction: Mets 5, Cardinals 0 (5/21/15)

The Mets needed a great performance today for any hope of tying the series up. What they received was a deGrominate one. The reigning Rookie of the Year showed just exactly why he won the award, striking out 11 over eight innings, and allowing just one hit all day. Those 11 Ks were the most he’s tossed since that memorable night back in September against the hapless Marlins. It...

Two Mets writers debating: Marlins’ GM Dan Jennings managing

It occurs to me that there are so many issues in the Mets organization and in baseball that get debated constantly behind the scenes by fans and media, alike. It’s with that mindset serving as a backdrop that we present a conversation between me and Brian Joura. Frank – It seems the desperation level in Miami has reached the critical status. Like nuclear war prep status. If I...

Gut Reaction: Cardinals 9, Mets 0 (5/20/15)

A six-run fourth inning put this one out of reach early and the Cardinals went on to a 9-0 laugher over the Mets on Wednesday. Really, there was nothing good that happened in this game. But let’s scrape the bottom of the barrel and try to find something that wasn’t terrible. Michael Cuddyer hit the ball hard twice and got a walk. These days that’s a good night. Lucas Duda...

Should the Mets trade Jon Niese over Dillon Gee?

Throughout this career, Jon Niese has been nothing short of an effective left-handed pitcher for the New York Mets. With a career winning percentage aournd .500, Niese currently finished only two of his eight total seasons with more losses than wins. Niese is also the only lefty in the Mets’ starting rotation, but with Steven Matz on his way up to the majors, Niese may begin...

On the Daniel Murphy infield screw-up

“I should not be by home plate, ideally,” said Murphy, who hit a two-run homer, accounting for the Mets’ only runs of the forgettable evening, and upping his team-leading RBI total to 22. “I was watching Reynolds over there. With the base open, I thought they may try that. When he broke, I broke. It was the wrong play.” Collins said: “There are times that players try...

Mets Card of the Week: 2002 Bruce Chen

2002 TOPPS BRUCE CHEN It is always bittersweet when a human time capsule like Bruce Chen retires. You look back at his first career start– a 21-year old lefty for the division-leading Braves facing a distant-second Mets squad in an essentially meaningless September game– and the names that float through the box score speak of a different era. Alfonzo, Olerud, Allensworth, Ordonez...

Giving a grade to every Mets hitter on the roster

Through the first quarter of the season, there have been surprises and disappointments across the league. From the .406 hitter in Gordon and the one walk from Colon to the .143 batting average from Chase Utley and 5.76 ERA from R.A. Dickey, this season has proved to be interesting thus far. However the biggest surprise of the season, much to the delight of Mets fans, has been the...
