2017 Mets Season Review: Nori Aoki brought consistency late in the season

2017 Mets Season Review: Nori Aoki brought consistency late in the season

The outfielder did exactly what you thought he would After Michael Conforto and Yoenis Cespedes went down with injuries and Curtis Granderson and Jay Bruce were traded away, the Mets needed someone to play the outfield for the last month of the season. Enter Norichika Aoki. Aoki was signed by the Mets on September 2, and he almost immediately did what he’s always done over his career: played a league-average outfield. Aoki was released by the Toronto Blue Jays on August 29, having been traded from the Houston Astros a month or so earlier. He hit .284/.371/.373 over the course of his 27...

2017 Mets Season Review: Michael Conforto went from question mark to all-star to…?

2017 Mets Season Review: Michael Conforto went from question mark to all-star to…?

Young outfielder seemed poised for stardom before devastating late-season shoulder injury.     Michael Conforto entered spring training seemingly the victim of the front office’s irrational exuberance as to the trade value of one Jay Bruce and Terry Collins’s perpetual aversion to players on the front nine of their career. After bursting on the scene in his first full season in 2015, contributing a 2.1 fWAR over 56 games down the stretch and having a memorable World Series, Conforto did struggle in 2016, but in any rational situation, the former first-round pick and perceived...

Monday Morning Mets Mind Boggler: 90-run seasons

Monday Morning Mets Mind Boggler: 90-run seasons

Can you name every Met to score at least 90 runs in a season? This year, for the fourth time in his career, Jose Reyes led the Mets in runs scored. While Michael Conforto, Jay Bruce, and Curtis Granderson would have been in the running had they finished the season on the Mets’ roster, Reyes’s 75 runs were enough to carry the day. For this week’s Mind Boggler, we’re asking you to name every player in Mets history to score at least 90 runs in a season. Every player in Mets history with at least 90 runs in a season Mets players have accomplished the feat 42 times. However, because...

Monday Morning Mets Mind Boggler: Mets with 100 RBIs

Can you name every player in Mets history with at least 100 RBIs in a season? Jay Bruce was the only Met to reach the 100-RBI plateau in 2017. Of the 101 runs he drove in, 75 came with the Mets and 26 with the Indians. Bruce’s 75 RBIs with the Mets were the most of any player on the team this year, followed by Michael Conforto’s total of 68. For this week’s Mind Boggler, we’re asking you to name every player in Mets history with at least 100 RBIs in a season. Every player in Mets history with at least 100 RBIs in a season Only 14 Mets have accomplished the feat, and several did it...

2017 Mets Season Review: Brandon Nimmo finds his niche

2017 Mets Season Review: Brandon Nimmo finds his niche

Sandy Alderson’s first draft pick finally carved out a major league role in 2017. Six years after being drafted with the 13th overall pick in 2011, Brandon Nimmo was largely an afterthought coming into 2017. His prospect pedigree was much diminished, as he had failed to develop the power you want to see from a corner bat or the defensive ability to stick in center field. If anything, Mets fans were afraid that Nimmo would be on the roster if the Mets elected to play service time games with Michael Conforto. Instead, Nimmo pulled his hamstring while playing for Team Italy in the World...
