The Mets Should Consider David Wright Finished For 2015

The New York Post, of all things, published an article yesterday, actually painting a hopeful picture for the return of David Wright later this summer. While we all know this is designed to sell newsprint more than anything, it also holds out a branch that could possibly pull the Mets out of the offensive funk – in every sense of those terms – in which they currently, collectively...

Gut Reaction: Cubs 6 Mets 1 (7/2/15)

A listless 6-1 loss completed a desultory 3-game sweep of the Mets at the hands of the up-and-coming Cubs. While hope was pinned on young Jacob deGrom to deliver the Mets from the doldrums, he wasn’t up to the task on an overcast afternoon. deGrom surrendered four runs and seven hits in a bare five-and-a-third innings pitched. For this Mets team, if the pitching isn’t up to...

The Mets’ collective slump and CYA decisions

Few people batted an eye when the Mets sent Dilson Herrera to the minors. After all, he was riding a 3-31 streak. As we all know, that’s the worse hitting streak in the history of the world and no MLB-caliber player ever experiences anything like that or they would volunteer to go to the minors to avoid the shame and indignity of it all. For proof of that, let’s check in...

Gut Reaction: Cubs 2, Mets 0 (7/1/15)

New month, same results. The Mets lessons in futility keep on truckin’ and yet another quality performance from a Mets starting pitcher is absolutely wasted as the team continues its’ slide toward dead last in every major offensive category. For a team with zero offense, why is it so offensive to the senses? Bartolo Colon went seven strong innings, striking out eight and walking...

Why Matt Harvey benefits from Steven Matz’ promotion

Steven Matz made his big league debut this past weekend, and he could not have been any better. Matz is considered one of the best pitching prospects in the game, so there is no doubt that he will help the Mets in what has been a recent struggle. While his call up benefits both the team and himself, perhaps it benefits Mets’ ace Matt Harvey the most. Assuming Matz stays put...

Ted Berg on the Bobby Bonilla payments

“So, to recap, by renegotiating Bobby Bonilla’s contract in 2000 to pay him $1.19 million annually from 2011 to 2035, the Mets: 1) Achieved the financial flexibility necessary to acquire players that put them in the World Series that season. 2) Got rid of a massive headache. 3) Earned a draft pick they used on seven-time All-Star David Wright. 4) Made a reasonably shrewd financial...

Mets Card of the Week: All-Star Rookies

TOPPS ALL-STAR ROOKIES Since 1959, Topps has been naming an annual All-Star Rookie roster, composed generally of eight position players, a left-handed pitcher, and a right-handed pitcher. Along with a 40′ yacht and a roomful of supermodels, each player named to the squad receives the All-Star rookie designation on their following year’s card. Up through 1972, this took the form...

Gut Reaction: Cubs 1, Mets 0 (6/30/15)

Some may have considered this game Jon Niese‘s audition to become a Chicago Cub, as the rumors have been circulating the past week about Niese getting traded. He pitched well tonight, going seven innings and allowing one run. Not a bad night for someone on the trading block. Curtis Granderson‘s hot streak cooled off, as he went 0-4 with two strikeouts. Daniel Murphy came back...

Which pitchers has Sandy Alderson actually drafted or signed?

What do Matt Harvey, Zack Wheeler, Jacob deGrom, Noah Syndergaard, and Steven Matz all have in common? Besides the fact that they are all on the Mets, none of them have actually been drafted by Sandy Alderson. Matz was drafted by Omar Minaya in one of the deepest left-handed starting pitching drafts ever (2009), Harvey and deGrom were part of the last draft class by Minaya ...

On Wilmer Flores moving to second base

The Mets are expected to activate Daniel Murphy and install him as the team’s third baseman in Tuesday’s game against the Cubs. We should all be glad that Murphy is back from the disabled list to lengthen the lineup. And we should be just as happy that the team is finally playing a better defensive lineup. In addition to Murphy at third, rumor has it that Ruben Tejada will...

Are the Mets being too patient at the plate?

Old fish, skunks and wet dog. These putrid stenches somehow reek less than the 2015 Mets offense. There’s just no other way a baseball team with that type of pitching is hovering around .500. Comparing the Mets to 29 other Major League teams, their 276 runs scored is only better than three other teams. Stellar pitching continues to outweigh suspect defense for a 24.1 dWAR, but...

Mets Minors: What’s left now that Steven Matz is gone?

Steven Matz has reached the majors and made people aware that he’s more than just a lefty pitcher.  Matz and his bat aside, people are wondering if the Mets have anything left in the tank.  When does Alderson promote Conforto?  Why haven’t we seen Matt Reynolds?  What’s left? The Mets have already called up Kevin Plawecki, Noah Syndergaard, Dilson Herrera, Jack Leathersich...

Steven Matz is the final piece for the future rotation

The Mets have featured young starting pitchers who can throw absolute heat in the past couple of seasons. In 2012, we saw Matt Harvey’s first major league start against the Arizona Diamondbacks, and going 5.1 innings while striking out 11 and getting the win. In 2013, Zack Wheeler made his debut against the Atlanta Braves, earning the win while striking out seven and walking five...

Gut Reaction: Mets 7, Reds 2 (6/28/15)

Tonight’s game was all about the debut of Steven Matz. We knew he could pitch, but he can also help his own cause at the plate. He went 3-3 with 4 RBIs. It is funny how the offense struggles to score more than two runs, yet a pitcher in his first game drives in four runs. He also went 7.2 innings, allowed two solo homers, and struck out six. Curtis Granderson‘s hot streak continues...

Gut Reaction: Mets 2, Reds 1 (6/28/15)

It took two days to finish, but the Mets and Reds finally finished the game, as the Mets would go on to win 2-1 in 13 innings thanks to a couple of errors by the Reds infield. Curtis Granderson hit his 250th home run to start the game as his offensive hot streak continues. Juan Lagares robbed Jay Bruce of a home run in the eighth inning to keep the game tied at 1, but popped up...

On Curtis Granderson batting leadoff for the Mets

They say home run hitters typically get them in bunches. Those of us who remember Dave Kingman sadly will recall that he blasted five homers in the seven games before he was hurt back in 1976, ending his best chance to make a run at Roger Maris. Well, right now Curtis Granderson has hit five homers in his last seven games – if you’re ready to count Saturday’s suspended...
