Juan Lagares had another injury-shortened season

Juan Lagares had another injury-shortened season

The outfielder’s season ended in May after injuring his toe. Juan Lagares came into spring training with a new swing. He spent the offseason revamping his swing so he would be better prepared for the fly ball revolution that was taking over baseball. This seemed like a good strategy for the outfielder since he was expected to see some playing time when the season began. With Michael Conforto expected to miss the start of the season as he worked his way back from shoulder surgery, it seemed like the starting job was Juan Lagares’s to lose until Conforto came back. There was a bit of a...

Bright spots from the 2018 season

Bright spots from the 2018 season

The Mets may have had a forgettable season collectively, but several players had individual performances to remember. Perhaps it’s because I’m far enough removed now from the June 2018 Mets, but reflecting back on this past season of Mets baseball, I feel different than I did one year ago. The 2017 season was a mess. There was pretty much only one good thing about it—Michael Conforto—and his season ended on a swing that destroyed his shoulder. As far as overall results, the 2018 season was not materially different from the 2017 season. The Mets finished in fourth place in the NL...

Brandon Nimmo was the best offensive player on the Mets in 2018

Brandon Nimmo was the best offensive player on the Mets in 2018

The former first round pick made great strides in his first full season in the majors Given how the 2018 season turned out, it’s hard to believe Brandon Nimmo was optioned to Triple-A just ten games into the year. The move followed Michael Conforto’s return from shoulder surgery, which resulted in fewer playing opportunities for the young outfielder. Thankfully, Nimmo was called back up three days later and left no doubt that he deserved a spot on the roster, developing into the team’s most reliable offensive threat while flashing his brilliant and infectious smile. Drafted...

Michael Conforto is ready to build on startling breakthrough

Sometimes, Michael Conforto looks at a largely empty Citi Field, and can hardly comprehend it. He can easily picture when every seat was filled, when it was a challenge to hear the person next to you speak. Conforto was a 22-year-old rookie in 2015, and the third-youngest player ever to homer in the World Series,...

Final Score: Braves 7, Mets 3-We want David

It was an ugly game and the Captain did not appear to make up for it. The Mets had a lead until the bullpen entered and it all fell apart quickly in the Mets 7-3 loss. Noah Syndergaard got the start and looked shaky early on but settled in as the game went along. He threw alot of pitches in the early innings which might have led to his exit in the sixth inning. In six innings of work he didn’t allow any runs, struck out five, and the Mets had a 3-0 lead. The bulk of the Mets’ runs came in the third. Michael Conforto put the Mets on the board first with a RBI double, and came home with...
