The All-Star break is upon us and it’s natural to look forward. The Mets at 48-40, four games back of the Atlanta Braves in the NL and one game behind in the wild card race. Below is a list of Mets players with a grade given to each hitter and pitcher on how they have […]

Murphy’s Law rears ugly head again

While it may not have been as damaging as the injuries that piled up last season for the Mets, Daniel Murphy’s season-ending injury will certainly have ramifications with the roster in to the summer. Murphy was perhaps days away from being recalled before he again was involved in another freak accident. On Wednesday night in […]

Back on April 16th, the headline that accompanied David Lennon’s piece in Newsday read, “Francoeur to Moneyball Gurus: How ya like me now?” Jeff Francoeur was great the first 10 days of the season but since then he has been horrible.

Realistically, the Mets go into the 2010 season unsure of what they will get from either Jeff Francoeur or Daniel Murphy. Francoeur has much more of a track record in the majors than Murphy, but his production has been so inconsistent (WARs ranging from 3.7 to -1.2) that anyone who says they know what to […]

Since Omar Minaya took over as the Mets’ general manager, much has been made in the mainstream media about the team’s emphasis on Latin players. Everyone seems to harp on Los Mets and with the club importing top talents such as Pedro Martinez, Carlos Beltran, Carlos Delgado and Johan Santana under Minaya’s watch, it’s not […]
