New York Mets: 5 reasons Lucas Duda is becoming a top first baseman

Not much has gone right for the New York Mets this season. One thing that did was picking Lucas Duda over Ike Davis. Duda has shined in his first opportunity to be a full time first baseman. Granted he is in a bit of a slump at the moment but on the season as a whole, Duda has faired better than many expected (including myself). Here are some reasons that Duda should be considered...

Mets miss boat not trading Bartolo Colon

Surely you were aware the New York Mets were tied to trade rumors leading up to the waiver-trade deadline, with Bartolo Colon‘s name being front and center.

Is David Wright Done? Of Course Not!

Is David Wright in the decline? Is this the end of David Wright? Is David Wright washed up? Calm Down. While it’s obvious that Wright has been struggling mightily in recent weeks, his power has been sapped and he’s having the worst season of his MLB career, I’m chalking this up to injury. He has always been a gamer who never asks out of the lineup due to injury and has refused...

Will 2015 Be A Repeat Of 2014 For Mets?

Adam Rubin of ESPN New York, raised a very interesting question in his column over the weekend. Will the 2015 Mets really be any better than the 2014 Mets? The obvious things to remember are that Matt Harvey will return, likely taking the mound on opening day to a huge, energized crowd. Bobby Parnell will also be back, teaming with a now established bullpen.

Mets top Phillies, end August on winning note

Outfielder Kirk Nieuwenhuis took a gander at the Mets’ lineup Sunday and a few aspects hit him immediately. There were guys, like himself, who normally don’t play. And overall, most of the lineup members such as Dilson Herrera and Wilmer Flores would be asked for proof of age at a juice bar. “I was warming up, looking at the lineup and thought ‘It’s a pretty young lineup...

A Month To Forget For Curtis Granderson

Saturday night was not too kind to the struggling Curtis Granderson. The Mets right fielder went 0-for-4, striking out with the bases loaded to end the seventh and leaving the field to a chorus of boos. Ironically, it was supposed to be his day as the Mets gave out Granderson bobbleheads to fans who were in attendance. When he returned to the dugout, Terry Collins told Granderson...

Backman Has No Shot At Managing Mets Despite Being Named League’s Best Manager

John Harper of the Daily News wrote an extensive article on what the future may hold for Wally Backman now that he has been named the PCL Manager of the Year. He says that if nothing else, the award is just more proof that Backman is a very good minor-league manager who deserves a chance at a big-league job.

Why Eric Campbell should be playing LF now (and maybe next year too!)

Over 160 career ABs, Matt den Dekker has shown that he is most likely not going to be the Mets everyday LF for the foreseeable future. We all know he can play the position, but he can’t hit. His K rate has decreased in his current stint on the Mets, but he isn’t hitting for power, he’s not hitting for average, he’s not doing anything with his bat. His wRC+ is 56, his ISO...
