Yoenis Cespedes leads revival for Mets hitters

Lucinda Williams went to Slidell to look for her joy, meaning that the Mets going to Cleveland to look for their offense is not the unlikeliest road trip ever. The good news for Mets fans is that it appears to have happened, as the club has hit seven homers in two games, after delivering just two in their first eight contests. Better late than never. Since the Mets’ offense is...

Gut Reaction: Indians 7, Mets 5 (4/16/16)

The Mets hit three more homers but the pitching didn’t hold up its end of the bargain, as the Mets fell to the Indians, 7-5, Saturday afternoon. The game started off great, with Curtis Granderson hitting a leadoff homer. And it got better in the bottom of the frame, as Matt Harvey struck out the side. Harvey was perfect thru 4.1 IP and then the wheels came off. His velocity...

David Wright, Travis d’Arnaud, and quality of contact

The Mets’ offense, as a whole, has sputtered out of the gate. That’s no secret, and it’s been frustrating for fans as well as, apparently, Terry Collins. The poor performance has been a team effort, mostly, with a general failure to execute despite some pretty good individual starts to the season. In fact, the differences from the good starts to the poor starts are quite stark...

Gut Reaction: Mets 6, Indians 5 (4/15/16)

They made it interesting as always, but the Mets came out of tonight’s game against the Indians the 6-5 victors. Coming into the game, they seemed to be bidding for the “lowest scoring team award” this season. Their 20 total runs scored was higher than only the 0-9 Minnesota Twins. Has the Mets’ offense awakened? Sort of. Maybe. Bartolo Colon started the game, and while...

Didn’t Travis d’Arnaud used to be good?

Mets catcher Travis d’Arnaud has gotten off to a brutal start. It’s early for sure, but the 27 year old has just two singles in 23 plate appearances. In fact the lone big hit to come from a catcher this season was courtesy of backup Kevin Plawecki, who may soon warrant more playing time if d’Arnaud doesn’t start hitting his weight. Last season, though limited to just 67...

A strange couple of weeks for Jacob deGrom and the Mets

It can safely be said that so far, the 2016 New York Mets’ season isn’t anything we signed up for. First of all, there’s this stumbling, troubling 3-5 start. As with all statistics in any game, that’s the bottom line. Did you win or did you lose? The fact that the Mets – overall consensus pick to repeat as NL East champs, at the very least – couldn’t solve the reputedly...

Gut Reaction: Mets 2, Marlins 1 (4/13/16)

The Mets’ offense is still essentially missing in action but they were able to eke out enough to earn a 2-1 win over the Marlins to snap a four-game losing streak and salvage the final game in the series against Miami. Logan Verrett made a spot start in place of the injured Jacob deGrom and he did an excellent imitation of the 2014 Rookie of the Year winner, throwing six shutout...

Jim Henderson is crucial to the Mets’ bullpen

For the Mets to revisit the playoffs in 2016 it is a given that the starting pitching must do most of the heavy lifting. Also needed is an offense strong enough to make up for a possibly shaky defense. But even if the starters soar – and they certainly did not in week one – and the hitters hit – and they also were less than impressive as the season opened – it would be important...

Gut Reaction: Marlins 2, Mets 1 (4/12/16)

The Mets sent Noah Syndergaard to the mound against Jose Fernandez and the Marlins in what turned out to be an unsurprising pitcher’s duel. Unfortunately, this one ended much in the same way most of the team’s games have ended so far this season. A loss, if that wasn’t clear, to the Marlins 2-1. It was their fourth straight L, dropping them to 2-5 for the season. Syndergaard...

Antonio Bastardo has struggled with the Mets

The New York Mets know that pitching is going to win games, which is why they decided to add another quality arm to the back of their bullpen this offseason. Sandy Alderson signed Antonio Bastardo to a 2-year, $12 million contract, hoping that he would be a dominant arm out of the bullpen. That has not turned out to be the case so far during his Mets tenure. Mets fans remember Bastardo...

Gut Reaction Marlins 10 Mets 3 (4/11/16)

If the Mets are going to crap the bed, does it have to be vs. the Phillies and Marlins? The Mets are now 2-4 and looking listless. Tonight is a game best left forgotten. Steven Matz got the first two batters of the game out in neat and efficient fashion. The third hitter, Christian Yelich, was given an infield hit on a challeneged call. This seemed to throw Matz off, despite his...

Mets Minors: Top stories from the full-season leagues

Hello again Met fans!  Very excited to be bringing you another year of Mets Minor League correspondence.  2016 will be quite a different beast than many I’ve covered in my time writing about the minor leagues.  2016 has no “Ace” pitcher, ready to ascend to the majors and join the storied Met rotation.  We don’t even have a “Can’t Miss” hitting prospect who is ready...

Gut Reaction: Phillies 5, Mets 2 (4/10/2016)

As sharp as the 2016 Mets looked in their ’86 throwback uniforms, it’s hard to imagine how they can look at themselves in the mirror after dropping two of three at home to the rebuilding Phillies. Matt Harvey was okay, giving up 3 earned runs in 6 innings. He wasn’t overpowering, but kept his team in the game, getting timely outs, including a big double play in the sixth. Surrendering...

Matt Harvey looks to join his dominating pitching teamates

When we last saw the Mets in 2015, they didn’t hit well, they didn’t pitch well and they didn’t field well. That’s a tough trio of things to overcome and unsurprisingly, they lost four of their final five games. Flash forward to 2016 and the fielding has been sort of okay, the hitting has been dismal but the pitching has been great. The end result is a 2-2 record, with...

Gut Reaction: Phillies 1, Mets 0 (4/9/16)

Raise your hand if you predicted a pitching duel between Bartolo Colon and Vince Velasquez. Well, that’s exactly what we witnessed in Colon’s first start of the 2016 season. Unfortunately, the Mets lost the duel 1-0. The aforementioned Colon carried over his dominance of the Phillies from 2015, striking out seven over six innings. His lone blemish was a change left over the...

Who is this former Mets player?

This Met was renowned for his speed and except for the fact that he only logged in a handful of ABs in his career, he might have been included in the company of Jose Reyes and Mookie Wilson.  In fact, this outfielder logged only 13 major-league ABs in 18 games over a two-year (two years non-consecutive) career.  His success rate for SBs was not that great; he swiped four bases...

Gut Reaction: Mets 7, Phillies 2 (4/8/16)

The Mets’ offense came alive, scoring in three different innings and putting up crooked numbers in two of them, which lead to a 7-2 win over the Phillies in the team’s home opener on Friday afternoon. New York pounded out nine hits, with Michael Conforto and Neil Walker contributing two apiece. Conforto had 3 RBIs and Walker scored twice and drove in two. Jacob deGrom again...
