How The Mets Can Bounce Back In The Final Stretch

Reading Time: 2 minutes Going into the season, the New York Mets were deemed as a contender in the NL East, mostly due to their electric starting pitchers and their young core of hitters. Unfortunately, those expectations did not come to fruition.  The once deep starting pitching rotation was decimated by injuries (Noah Syndergaard), opt-outs (Marcus Stroman), inconsistency (Rick Porcello and Michael Wacha), and questionable roster moves from GM Brodie Van Wagenen (the trades of Jordan Humphreys and Kevin Smith). Currently, the only sure things in the rotation are Jacob DeGrom and rookie David Peterson.  The offense has not...

Future of the Mets: A Realistic Look At Their 2021 Starting Rotation

Reading Time: 2 minutes2020 hasn’t been kind to anyone, especially the New York Mets. The team has struggled with driving runs in, defense, base running, and, most of all, starting pitching.  Noah Syndergaard undergoing Tommy John surgery in March was just the start of the downfall. Later, Marcus Stroman hurt his calf and then decided to opt-out, which doomed the Mets even more. On top of that, starters Michael Wacha, Rick Porcello, and Steven Matz have all suffered heavily from inconsistency.

However these injuries have led to the emergence of one of the team’s top prospects Andrés Giménez.  The rookie has been one of the team’s few bright spots...

The Rollercoaster Career of Yoenis Cespedes

Reading Time: 4 minutesIn 2015, the New York Mets had the foundation of a World Series contending team. The roster was led by veterans such as Curtis Granderson, David Wright, and Daniel Murphy while also fielding budding superstars like Jacob DeGrom, Michael Conforto, and Matt Harvey. At the end of that July, the Mets were sitting just above .500 at 53-50. They were looking good but needed something new. On July 31, the New York Mets traded top prospects Michael Fulmer and Luis Cessa to the Detroit Tigers for Yoenis Cespedes. Cespedes, 30 at the time, had somewhat of...

Why Marcus Stroman is Key for the 2020 Mets

Reading Time: 2 minutesThe New York Mets shocked the baseball world last year when they made the blockbuster trade to bring Marcus Stroman back home to the Big Apple. Stroman put up very solid numbers last year finishing with an ERA of 3.22 as well as his first All-Star Game appearance. Stroman fits perfectly into the Mets elite rotation. His ability to pitch to the ground ball perfectly complements Jacob DeGrom’s style of pitching to the strikeout. However, Stroman did struggle a bit in his 11 starts in New York. He pitched at an ERA of 3.77 in New...
