Examining last-minute NL Rookie of the Year candidates

Ever since Doc Gooden debuted, there have been very few Mets rookies that have stood out. This year, however, a new player has burst on to the scene and that man is Jacob deGrom. After a 13-strikeout performance, one would think that Jacob deGrom is a shoe-in for the National League Rookie of the Year, but there are a few players who could get hot at the end of the season and spoil...

Rubin: Tejada, Brown, Young Jr. May Be Non-Tendered

According to a report from Adam Rubin (ESPN), Sandy Alderson spoke about the future of the 40-man roster on Monday. His conclusion is that the GM cannot protect all of the players he’d like to because he needs to add several prospects to protect them from the Rule 5 Draft. Prospects that are not protected (on the 40-man) can be claimed by other teams in the Rule 5 draft. Those...

Blow It Out Your Ass, Bud

“Do I have any problem with the Mets’ finances? None.” More lies, more misinformation, more deviousness. It’s not what any of us want, but it’s what we’ve all become accustomed to whenever the Wilpons or Bud Selig get behind a microphone and their jaws start moving. And Tuesday’s dog and pony show by Bud Selig was only more evidence of that. He brought no relief, only...

Why You Should Believe in Travis d’Arnaud in 2015

Mets rookie catcher Travis d’Arnaud got off to a bit of a rocky start in his first full season as the New York Mets everyday catcher. The struggles were a shock for the 25-year-old, whom the Mets acquired from the Toronto Blue Jays in the R.A. Dickey deal back in 2013. d’Arnaud had been a top 100 prospect in baseball every year since before the 2010 season, and had compiled...

Collins Blowing Smoke; It’s Flores’ Job To Lose

Terry Collins insists shortstop will be wide open next spring, but what else can he say? Even after Wilmer Flores homered twice and drove in six runs Tuesday night in a 9-1 rout of the Marlins, and has driven in 10 runs over the last four games, Collins is dancing the politically correct line. He has to. FLORES: Should get job. (Getty) He can’t give the job to Flores outright,...

Nine innings of baseball, 24 hours of drama

With the Mets mathematically eliminated from the National League East and the dream of winning the second Wild Card out of reach, the ball club will have to wait until at least 2015 to compete in the Post Season for the first time since 2006. That being said, the Mets should not just give up on the 2014 season, because there are still 10 games left, which shall provide a plethora...

Mets Card of the Week: 1980 Pete Falcone

1980 TOPPS PETE FALCONE The Mets record book is one part strict classicism and two parts dark magic. Most of the canonical season and career records are held by your Seavers and Strawberries and such. But many of the more obscure and occasional marks belong to short timers and journeymen. Take, for example, the team record for most consecutive strikeouts to start a game. Just this...

Can We Really Trust Lucas Duda?

On August 1st, Lucas Duda was batting .263. He had driven in 61 runs and had 20 home runs under his belt. Since that date, his numbers have slipped drastically. This morning he wakes up to a .248 batting average and has added 7 more home runs. The numbers tell the story of an emerging slugger at first base. The eye test tells a slightly different tale. Since Duda went on his home...

Flores De Los Metos

Yesterday, Wilmer Flores went 3-for-4, 2 runs, 6 RBIs with his 5th and 6th homers. With David Wright hurt, Flores has been playing every day.

Perchance To Dream

I’m trying to figure out of Wilmer Flores’ two HR’s and six RBI are a stepping stone to the everyday shortstop job in 2015, or a sure sign that Brad Penny should retire. Hell, it’s probably a little of both. But to see it happen was soothing … calamine lotion on arms full of mosquito bites. Maybe dreaming of a world where Flores is a lynchpin of future Mets offensive lineups...

Wilmer Flores Successfully Making Routine Plays

Earlier today, the author published a post regarding rather young Mets shortstop Wilmer Flores and how — somewhat surprisingly, given basically every scouting report about him — Flores had played a mostly average shortstop over 400-plus innings. Said post included select footage — both of Flores misplaying relatively harmless ground balls and also Flores recording […]

New York Mets: Jacob deGrom makes history

It seems that even when the New York Mets are terrible, there is still one player who makes people want to continue watching. In 2011, it was Jose Reyes going on to win the National League batting title. In 2012, it was R.A. Dickey and his quest for 20 wins. In 2013, Matt Harvey burst onto the scene, earning a start in the All Star Game. In 2014, it has been Jacob deGrom. The rookie...
