The 2015 shortstop free agent market benefits Ruben Tejada

I can’t believe I’m saying this, but there is a good possibility that Ruben Tejada will be the Mets shortstop in 2015. There is a huge caveat with that statement, and that is the assumption that Wilmer Flores fails to take the position via his superior offensive capabilities, or Matt Reynolds down in Triple-A does not impress. Both could make a strong case either during the...

With homeruns in 4 of 6, Lucas Duda stays hot (Week 17 MLB Transaction Trends)

After entering the season as Ike Davis‘ backup at first base, Duda has run away with the job and forced Davis’ trade to the Pirates with his breakout year at the plate. He has career highs in home runs, steals, ISO, OBP and SLG%, and is well on his way to setting a new bar for plate appearances, runs and RBI. His HR/FB ratio (15.5%) is a tad high, but the split’s on a steady...

The New York Mets’ Team Colors Were Almost Pink and Black

The New York Mets almost had the most distinct uniforms in baseball but then they unfortunately went with something a little more familiar and conservative. The team’s original owner, Joan Whitney Payson, had kicked around the idea of making the Mets’ jerseys pink and black in honor of the color of the Payson’s family stables. The stables’ silks were a salmon pink with black...

Sandy Alderson: Mets Unlikely To Make Any Deals

Sandy Alderson told reporters at Citi Field that it’s unlikely the Mets make a deal before the Trade Deadline. “To make a guess, I would say that nothing will happen,” the GM said. Of course, no run-up to the trade deadline would be the same if Sandy didn’t say something akin to this. The Mets have been shopping Bartolo Colon and Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports reported that...

Lagares’ Head First Slide Didn’t Sit Well With Collins

During Sunday’s game at Miller Park, in the eighth inning, Juan Lagares was trying to beat out a ground ball to shortstop, when he decided to slide head first into the first base bag.

New York Mets Will Pay Some Of Bartolo Colon’s Contract In Trade

The New York Mets made two big acquisitions this summer, Curtis Granderson and Bartolo Colon. While Granderson will be with the Mets for awhile, it appears Colon’s days in a Mets uniform are numbered. Bartolo Colon has been solid for the team this season, pitching himself to a 9-8 record with a 4.03 ERA, 1.15 WHIP, and 100 Ks in 134 IP. So why would the Mets be willing to trade...
