New York Mets offense sets records in futility

The New York Mets are headed on the road after a very disappointing home stand. They were swept in three games by the Washington Nationals and split a 4 game series with the Chicago Cubs. To make matters worse, the Mets matched their own futile mark-set in 2004- of going five consecutive games with four or fewer hits. This futility is not a new development. Ever since the the All...

Lucas Duda emerging as the future of the Mets

Lucas Duda – Photo Credit – Chris Swann   Let’s face it, the 4th place New York Mets haven’t been a good team since two consecutive September collapses in 2007 and 08′. They have been rebuilding — although they might not admit it, since that time. Through all of these tough times, they have watched players like Johan Santana deteriorate due to injuries, Jose Reyes leave...

Wright Is Frustrated and Isn’t Getting Any Younger

David Wright is mired in another slump as his career worst season continues. The Mets Captain insists it’s not his shoulder. “The shoulder is not an excuse. Again, when I go tell the manager that I’m good to play, I expect to produce. I’m not thinking about the shoulder. I’m not thinking about bad habits. I’m thinking about going out there and trying to excel and doing...

Curtis Granderson and the leadoff position

Curtis Granderson, who we affectionately refer to as Granny on the Mets360 Game Chatters, first appeared in the leadoff spot for the Mets lineup on June 15th. It wasn’t until July 5th that he retained that spot, seemingly for the rest of the season. Since that date, Granderson is batting .197/.276/.299 with three home runs, six doubles, 17 runs, and two stolen bases from that...

There Is No Dana, Only Fools

I want to touch on Carlos Torres’ great outing on Monday, as he went five innings while giving up three hits and striking out six in an emergency start after pitching a third of an inning the day before. But I can’t do that without mentioning the reason for Torres’ emergency start, as Bartolo Colon left to be with his ill mother before she passed away. So as you think of Torres...

Zack Wheeler is becoming an ace

The Mets starting rotation has been solid this season, featuring Bartolo Colon, Jacob deGrom, Dillon Gee, Jon Niese, and Zack Wheeler. In a rotation featuring pitchers with ERAs below 4.00, there has been a consistency of good starting pitching throughout the season. Although pitchers experiencing streaks may be common, Wheeler is turning a corner late in the season, and is...

Mets need to find more playing time for Eric Campbell

Friday night Eric Campbell got a start in left field because a lefty was on the mound and he delivered a game-winning home run. For the season Campbell has a .299/.345/.403 mark in 148 PA but cannot find a spot in the lineup to play on a regular basis. A third baseman by trade, Campbell put up a 1.016 OPS when he got to play the hot corner this year. But with David Wright around...
