Mets Were Running On Empty Saturday

Some might say that the Mets ran themselves out of a potential win on Saturday when they fell to the Nationals by a score of 1-0. It was the first time this season that the Mets were shutout. There were two very significant base-running gaffes that might of made a difference in the game’s outcome. In the first inning, with Juan Lagares on first base, Lucas Duda lined an opposite...

Was Last Night deGnome-Gate?

In a year where Mets ownership is looking to get the fans back, the team is sitting in first place in early May, and there is a buzz at Citi Field that has never been seen with such regularity before. But are the Mets are making a big blunder when it comes to their premium promotions in 2015? Last night was Jacob deGrom Gnome Night. The first 15,000 fans received the giveaway. There...

Checking in on the Wilmer Flores as starting shortstop experiment

Before the season started if you were to make the case for using Wilmer Flores at shortstop you would say he looked sort of okay defensively, he makes good contact and he showed in September with regular playing time that he could be an asset offensively. Besides, no one really wanted to see Ruben Tejada as the team’s starter. Since no move was made to bring in another shortstop...

Juan Lagares On Fast Track To Stardom

Mets centerfielder Juan Lagares is already recognized as a defensive star, making one highlight reel catch after another game after game, and earning his first Gold Glove last season. However, Lagares is beginning to get a lot of attention for his vast improvement at the plate and is quickly developing into one of the best all-around players on the team. Lagares has been very reliable...

Gnomes And Toes

I’d love to talk more about Saturday’s 1-0 loss to the Nationals. (I will say that I have no problem with Dilson Herrera being aggressive and trying to take that extra base.) But to be quite honest, it was so damn cold up in section 339 that we spent three innings walking around the lower deck contemplating buying a $95 sweatshirt to keep warm while meandering around the heated...

Niese outpitched by Gonzalez as Mets lose to Nationals 1-0

NEW YORK (AP) Jonathon Niese stranded nine runners. The one he didn't was enough to beat him. Gio Gonzalez struck out nine in seven crisp innings on one of his favorite mounds, outpitching Niese to lead the Washington Nationals over the New York Mets 1-0 Saturday night. ''Probably the best I felt all year,'' Niese said. ''There were a lot of groundball base hits, stuff that hit...

Gut Reaction: Nationals 1, Mets 0 (5/2/15)

In yesterday’s game the Mets struck out 12 times and left eight men on base. Today the offense struck out 10 more times and left 10 runners on base, providing zero offense to back their pitcher. Jon Niese pitched around a lot of traffic on the bases, but managed to give up just one run in the second inning off a Michael Taylor single. Oddly, it was the second hit of the inning...

New York Mets: Dilson Herrera time?

Dilson Herrera is a highly touted prospect, as the second baseman has raked in the minors. Is he finally taking over the second baseman job for the New York Mets? Every game matters for these New York Mets; that is what a winning April will entail. However, the Mets have been sputtering as of late, losing five of their last eight games. Middle-infield defense has played a part,...

Amed Rosairo, others, struggling with aggressive assignments

Early last month we wrote about some select Mets prospects that the team had been uncharacteristically aggressive in promoting to start the 2015 season. It was uncharacteristic in the sense that the team has generally been somewhat conservative with many of their prospects under General Manager Sandy Alderson’s regime. It’s unclear whether it was a reversal in approach to managing...

Another Jeff Wilpon Controversy, Pedro Slams COO In Tell All Book.

There are players you follow as a fan, players you only get to know from a distance. Some may come of as one dimensional through no fault of their own — they are after all solely and perhaps obsessively devoted to their craft with a single minded devotion. They almost have to be this way in order to succeed at the highest level. It’s a function of the remarkable demands that...

Wilfredo Tovar: The Mets Answer at Shortstop?

Coming into this season, there was much doubt surrounding whether a Wilmer Flores and Daniel Murphy shortstop and second base combination could holdup over a full season. And while the Mets eleven game winning streak gave the clumsy duo a bit more leeway, two big losses against the Marlins earlier this week exacerbated the Mets middle infield conundrum. The Front Office took action...

Could Herrera Push Murphy Out At Second Base?

The Mets promoted highly touted infield prospect Dilson Herrera to the majors this week. He started at second base on Friday while Daniel Murphy played third base, filling in for the injured David Wright. Once Wright returns, Murphy is slated to return to second base. However if Herrera plays well at second base while he’s here and can show he belongs in the major leagues, it...

Wright More Than A Week Away

As they should, the Mets are treating David Wright‘s hamstring injury with kid gloves and perhaps learning from experience, aren’t making any projections about his return. GM Sandy Alderson told reporters Friday having Wright back next weekend in Philadelphia “seems a little aggressive.” Wright went on the disabled list April 15 with what was called a right hamstring strain...
