Featured Post: Top 5 Underrated Mets Hitting Prospects

Are the Mets and Braves potential trade partners this offseason?

One of the staples of offseason talk radio and blog writing is the trade column. And unfortunately, a lot of times this takes the form of “let’s group together our trash and trade it for your star.” There are multiple reasons why this happens. Among other things, it’s hard to be objective about the talent on your team. Additional reasons are that fans are unlikely to...

Citi Field Fence Changes Could Change Team Strategy

In the last few years, the New York Mets have done a pretty good job building up their farm system with a lot of pitching. Ever since moving to Citi Field, hitters have found it difficult to drive the ball out of the ballpark. That leads to a focus on pitching, but things could change this upcoming season as the fences are moved in for the 2nd time since opening up in 2009. The New...

Mets 360 Projection Review: Zack Wheeler

We saw him taking steps forward, but not necessarily as many as he ended up taking.  Here is our official projection: IP: 179 ERA...

Just How Vauable Is Juan Lagares?

Mark Simon of ESPN New York, does a very nice job of analyzing the first full season of center fielder Juan Lagares, who he says was arguably the Mets’ most valuable player or at the very least one of their top three. I agree. Offensively, Lagares’ progression was a product of two things: increasing his line-drive rate from 19 percent to 22 percent and spraying the ball across...

DePodesta Excited About Mets Shortstop Prospects

If there’s one thing that’s missing from the Mets it’s impact positional prospects. Since the days of David Wright and Jose Reyes, the Mets have produced several impact pitchers like Matt Harvey, Jon Niese and even Mike Pelfrey to an extent.

Mr. Met can’t bare this anymore.  It’s official, the Royals and the Giants are going to the World Series. Earlier this year, the Mets honored the Negro Leagues on June 28, 2014.

New York Mets Players And Their Walking Dead Counterparts

What it feels like to be a New York Mets fan The New York Mets and The Walking Dead are synonymous is so many ways. The jokes could go on and on for days, but that’s not what this post is about. It’s no secret that The Walking Dead is TSB’s favorite TV show. Hook and I have done numerous recaps, “Dead Yourself” articles, and talked about it on TSB Radio. But now that the...

The Mets need to find out quickly if Wilmer Flores is going to be the shortstop of the future One thing is clear: it probably isn’t Ruben Tejada.

How should the Mets handle Matt Harvey?

Operating under the assumption Matt Harvey will be ready for spring training and subsequently the start of the season, there will undoubtedly be an innings limitation. In theory, the Mets want him ready for a postseason push. They haven’t announced what the cap would be, but let’s figure on 175-180 innings – which is at least three starts shy of the hoped for 200. HARVEY: Innings...
