Chris Young: Is he deja vu all over again?

There’s an old saying, “those who do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it”. It seems that while watching the 2014 version of the New York Mets, that management hasn’t learned that lesson. For example, in December of 2009, the Mets outbid no one in order to overpay for a solid defensive corner outfielder that was supposed to have a big bat too. That player is Jason...

Posture and position as he might, the reality is Alderson does not have the payroll flexibility of bringing a third top flight offensive player to...

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...
