Mets Player Performance Meter: Position players, June 19-25

A quick review of how the Mets’ position players fared over the past week Thank goodness for the Mets’ offense. Without the performances the team’s position players have been putting up—on a pretty regular basis—this season would be much, much worse than it’s already been. And you’ll be shocked to hear me celebrate the great week that one of the Mets’ outfielders had. Jay Bruce had a good week, just not a great enough week to keep his fireball status. He hit .227/.346/.500 with a couple of home runs. He’s been a pleasant surprise this season. Not-second...

Mets Morning News: Mets finish sweep of Giants, Michael Conforto leaves with wrist injury

Your Monday morning dose of New York Mets and MLB news, notes, and links. Meet the Mets The Mets did a complete 180 from their series in Los Angeles by finishing off a sweep in San Francisco. Rafael Montero pitched pretty well on the mound and the offense was home run happy with Rene Rivera leading the charge. He went deep twice and both Jay Bruce and Curtis Granderson also left the park. Granderson literally left the park when his ball splashed down in McCovey Cove. No win is ever easy for this team, and this time the concern was for Michael Conforto when he had to leave the game after...

New York Mets Do Have Some Valuable Assets If They Become Sellers

The New York Mets may need to become sellers if they can't right the ship by the All Star Break. General Manager Sandy Alderson does have a lot of veterans he can shop, but the players who can probably bring back the most in a trade are outfielder Jay Bruce, lefty specialist Jerry Blevins, and reliever Addison Reed.

Mets Player Performance Meter: Position Players, June 12-18

A quick review of how the Mets’ position players fared over the past week Although the Mets went just 3-4 over the past week, taking two of three from the Cubs but just one of four from the Nationals, their offense mostly did okay. Here’s how the position players did individually over the week of June 12 through 18. Jay Bruce was the Mets’ second-best hitter for the week, at least among those who played the full week, with an outstanding .407/.448/.704 line that translated to a 205 wRC+. Before hitting the disabled list again, Asdrubal Cabrera hit two home runs in the...

Mets vs. Nationals Recap: Capital depreciation

Mets drop third straight to Washington to fall 11.5 games behind Nationals Trea Turner led off the game with a home run—the fifth homer the Mets have allowed in the first inning this week, the third leading off the game—and New York was left playing catch-up all game, never getting closer than two runs, before ultimately falling to the Nationals 7-4. The Mets had a chance to get that first inning run back in the bottom of the inning. Yoenis Cespedes and Jay Bruce hit back-to-back singles with one out, but a Wilmer Flores double play squashed that rally. By the time...

Final score: Nationals 7, Mets 2—Not even close

Final score: Nationals 7, Mets 2—Not even close

The Mets lost another game in which they never seemed to have a chance of winning. The Mets got shellacked by the Nationals again tonight, this time losing 7-2 in a game that never even really felt that close. Steven Matz gave up four runs on eight hits, three of which were home runs, in seven innings of work. And with Max Scherzer very much on top of his game, the Mets didn’t stand a chance. Scherzer went eight innings and gave up just a solo home run to Jose Reyes in the eighth. He struck out ten, walked two, and hit a couple of guys. The Mets plated one more run on a solo Jay Bruce...
