A possible second-place finish in the NL East and near-.500 record has to be considered an improvement over the 74 wins the New York Mets earned in 2013. Of course, finishing second would be an indictment of the rest of the division, especially the cratering Braves. But the final standings could also reflect how the balance of power has changed in the NL East. The Mets and Marlins...

Eric Campbell and the utility trap

Eric Campbell has shown enormous flexibility on the field for the Mets in 2014. He has played everywhere except center, and catcher, and has a .698 OPS to show for very sporadic playing time.
