New York Mets: Collins considering shift in outfield positioning

When the New York Mets first acquired Michael Cuddyer, it was widely believed that he would play right field, moving Curtis Granderson over to left field. Now reports are surfacing that Terry Collins may have other ideas.

Kevin Long Says Batting Title Is Within Daniel Murphy’s Grasp

After his first Mets press conference here, Kevin Kernan of the New York Post pulled Kevin Long aside and asked him what Mets hitter has the best chance to become better this season. Long didn’t hesitate. “Murphy,’’ he said. “A batting title is not out of his grasp.” “He’s got a lot of pop and a lot of potential. There is more ability in there and we are going to...

New York Mets: Preseason Edition

The New York Mets have had six consecutive losing seasons, and the last time they were in the playoffs they lost in the NLCS to the St. Louis Cardinals in 2006. Optimism that the 2015 season will change this streak is high, and the Mets are well equipped to make a playoff spot. One huge advantage for the Mets is the return of right-handed pitcher Matt Harvey, who missed all of the...

Can Michael Cuddyer really help the Mets?

When you run a baseball team in the biggest market in the world and your budget in 2015 is 19th in the sport, it’s a little insulting to the fanbase to shell out nearly 1/10th of that budget to a player who will be turning 36 before the start of the season, and who played just 49 games the year before. That’s the kind of “big fix” that doesn’t go over too well. But that...

Way too much hinges on Michael Cuddyer’s health

The 2015 Mets have a weak link and it’s not what you think. Mets fans want to start the season with a complete team, free of glaring weaknesses at any given position. Every third blog post has been about upgrading over Wilmer Flores, as if mortgaging the future for a proven veteran shortstop to replace a young, homegrown, cheap player with offensive potential would put us in the...

Was signing Michael Cuddyer worth losing a first round pick?

Had the Mets not signed Michael Cuddyer or any other player that would cost them a draft pick in the draft in June, then they would have the 15th pick. From 2000 to 2009 every player that has been drafted 15th overall has made it to the major leagues. Some have performed better than others, Chase Utley, Stephen Drew, Devin Mesoraco, and former Mets number one pick Scott Kazmir...
