METS RUMORS & GOSSIP

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. With the Los Angeles Angels losing Garrett Richards for the foreseeable future, and them needing a quality, veteran arm, they needed another good arm for the stretch run.

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. The pieces that seem...

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...

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...

Currently the Mets outfield is made up of two players in the teams long term plans, Curtis Granderson and Juan Lagares. The third outfield position is manned by a make it or break it platoon of Matt den Dekker and Eric Campbell.

The New York Mets have made a big move concerning their middle infield. No, Troy Tulowitzki is not coming over in a trade. Instead the Mets have opted to put Daniel Murphy on the disabled list and call up Dilson Herrera from Double-A.

New York Mets: is Juan Lagares’ glove golden?

I predicted at the beginning of this season that Juan Lagares would finish in the top 10 in Gold Glove voting. As it turns out, he has a chance to do significantly better than that. New York Mets fans are all aware of Lagares’ defensive wizardry. Nationally, however he isn’t the first name to anyone’s lips despite what the statistics may show. Lagares’ defensive prowess does...
