The Nats are overrated

As you read the various 2015 season previews you’ll be hard pressed to find any prognosticator who doesn’t pick the Washington Nationals to handily win the National League East. Several are predicting they’ll win the National League Pennant and even the World Series. According to the Sporting News, “a team with hardly any flaws should have an easy path to a third division...

Reinventing the Mets: 1975

Note: This is a series of articles creating an alternate history for the Mets. They started with a reinvention of the 1962 expansion draft and have progressed from there. In actual history, some of these players were Mets, some never were. This isn’t meant to be an historical re-examination of the franchise. It’s supposed to be a fun excursion into what could have been. Our 1974...

David Wright lavishes praise on Jacob deGrom

Wright, who describes deGrom as “one of my favorite people to be around,” praises his teammate for being serious but not taking himself seriously: “[Jacob] stays loose and you can get on him in a joking way and is very receptive to learning and getting better and that’s what you want out of a teammate, someone who isn’t complacent about winning the Rookie of the Year and...

Lucas Duda is the key to success in 2015 for the Mets

Baseball is a game of adjustments. Players adjust to the league. The league adjusts in response to a player s success. The constant strategy is endless. No where is this statement any truer than in the batter’s box. Expert analysts break down every pitch as if it had championship aspirations riding on them. Often, they do. For the 2015 New York Mets, adjustments will be a major...

Bartolo Colon is not the problem Opening Day

New York and national media is up in arms over annexation of Matt Harvey’s rightful duty to start Opening Day. Instead of yielding to the Dark Knight, GM Sandy Alderson and Manager Terry Collins have the unmitigated audacity to announce they will pit Bartolo Colon against Nationals ace Max Scherzer at Nationals Park April 6. And there’s no problem with that. Opening Day at...

Future of MLB Part II: The Post Season

In 12 years, the format of Major League Baseball will be completely different. Last week, I went in depth about how the divisions will look with two new teams added to the mix (the Puerto Rico Sapos and the Dominica Tarantulas). With that out of the way, this week will focus on what the Post Season will look like. In 2012, the playoff format changed to allow one more team to make...

Bartolo Colon To Start On Opening Day? That’s Fine

The New York tabloids are beside themselves this morning. “Same Old Mets” brays the back page of the New York Daily News. “Buzzkill” blares the New York Post. “Old Timers Day” chortles Newsday. The reason for all this LOLMetsing? The team announced that Bartolo Colon would be the starter on Opening Day against the Nationals in DC. He’ll be followed two days later...

Reinventing the Mets: 1974

In 1973, our Mets reached the pinnacle of baseball for the second time in five years. The legendary Willie Mays was able to end his career as a World Series champion instead of how the real 1973 ended, with Mays being remembered for several flubbed plays in that championship contest. Tom Seaver won his second Cy Young Award and the Mets squad, full of players that were now old...

Mets fantasy value: 2015

Fantasy baseball is a game for the long haul. Unlike fantasy football, where one bad week can ruin your entire season, the chances of one bad week throwing off your year in fantasy baseball are slim. Much like the real-life version, the game is a grind, and knowing the ins and outs of valuable players is what keeps teams fresh all year long. Today we’ll look at which Mets players...

Why Zack Wheeler going down is a blessing in disguise

Zack Wheeler has had a history of pain in his throwing elbow before and now has resulted in the need for Tommy John Surgery. The Mets knowledge of his elbow led him to be kept away from the trading block for the winter and see how well he could perform during spring training. He received a platelet-rich-plasma injection during the offseason in hopes to get rid of the problem. Wheeler...

Thanks to injuries, Daniel Muno can sieze opportunity

With Daniel Murphy seemingly destined to start the season on the disabled list after suffering a hamstring injury, the Opening Day second base job most likely belongs to Ruben Tejada. With Wilmer Flores sporting a walking boot after fouling a ball off his foot on Sunday’s game against the Yankees, Matt Reynolds appears to be the leader in the clubhouse for Opening Day shortstop...

The Mets’ Opening Day second baseman situation

The Mets have suffered some devastating injuries to their pitching staff this spring, including Josh Edgin and Zack Wheeler. However, the starting lineup has an injury that will impact the first couple of weeks. Daniel Murphy may be placed on the disabled list with a right hamstring injury, creating a need to find a second baseman to fill in until Murphy comes back. The potential...

Mets get good news where it counts this Spring

Look, all I know is what they taught me at SABR Blogging school. There are certain rules about baseball. Rule number one is young pitchers get hurt. And rule number two is strategy can’t change rule number one. Now is an appropriate time to re-work this M*A*S*H quote. It seems all that anyone wants to talk about is the two pitchers that the Mets have lost already. While there’s...

Are the Mets to blame for their Tommy John surgeries?

Part of the fallout of the news of Zack Wheeler‘s impending Tommy John (TJ) surgery has been the commentary on the way in which the Mets managed his innings and (later reported) ailments last season. There have been plenty of Monday morning doctors, fueled by tidbits of information spun into speculation by the media, suggesting that the team handled his workload and pain improperly...

MLB.com’s Mets prospect list

MLB.com has released its top 30 Mets prospect list, which you can see here. The best thing about the list is the pictures that accompany each player. If you’re looking for analysis, you’ll be disappointed. But that’s okay. At this point you likely know who all of the guys are, anyway. The Mets’ system is deep enough that you’re never going to find consensus. My belief...

Reinventing the Mets: 1973

After a terrific regular season in 1972 and a nail biting rush to the division title with the Pirates, the Mets had fallen short of returning to the World Series, again falling to the Big Red Machine from Cincinnati, as they had in 1970. After losing out to the Reds twice in three years, the Mets would have gone into the 1972 offseason with the goal of bridging that gap. Here’s...

Can Wilmer Flores Outhit His Defense?

The experts say the Mets are lacking at shortstop, have been since Jose Reyes took his talents to South Florida after 2011. Considering that Reyes had just won the Mets’ first batting title in 50 seasons of baseball and that his initial replacement was Ruben Tejada, the experts have not been wrong. Tejada put up some promising numbers in extremely small sample sizes during 2010...
