Juan Lagares the Odd Man Out?

Juan Lagares has been the New York Mets’ most lethal hitter thus far. Before the season there was speculation he’d be a bench player due to his ineptitude at the plate – he’s always been known for his stellar play defensively, but, supposedly, his weak bat would keep him from playing every day. But after being named the starter in center field on Opening Day, Lagares hasn’t...

Will Mets Have Revived Interest In Nick Franklin?

The trade buzz on Nick Franklin is picking up again as both the Yankees and Tigers continue to get meager production from their shortstop position. And while there’s nothing to suggest that the Mets have any revived interest in the Mariners prospect, that could change if Ruben Tejada doesn’t start picking it up at the plate. Franklin, who just turned 23, is currently tearing...

Lagares’ Injury and the Optimist’s View

The hamstring injury to Juan Lagares is unfortunate on so many levels. While the Spring was filled with much debate on how much playing time Lagares would see, it was clear he had become the team’s everyday centerfielder just two weeks into the season. With Lagares, the argument has always been that he is a defensive gem-maker and anything you get from the bat is gravy. But in...
