Nine Innings/Questions with Mets Hot Corner

This is a continuation of our series of articles where I ask fellow bloggers from the Baseball Bloggers Alliance (BBA) 9 innings worth of questions about their team. The goal is to do this for as many teams as possible (all 30 would be ideal) a few times a season. This one is a pre-All Star edition, then a post-All Star edition, another down the stretch (towards the end of the season) and then either a playoffs edition or off season edition or both!
So, without further ado …
- How are the Mets offseason acquisitions working out so far? Any concerns?
The best acquisition offensively has been Yoenis Cespedes. Currently leading MLB with 15 HRs and batting .309, he is definitely one of the driving forces.
Defensively, trading for Neil Walker and signing Asdrubal Cabrera seems to be one of Sandy’s best moves. I’ve never been so excited over double plays, but with those two on the field I can’t help it – it hasn’t looked that pretty in a long time in Queens!
Bartolo Colon. Do I really need to get into this one? Dude is practically a legend since becoming a member of the Mets, and being he actually hit a home run this season just makes the story even better. Oh yeah, holding the Nationals to one run the other night was pretty swell also, especially since the prior outing was a game I would rather forget.
Bastardo was one of the signings that many in the media called the best move that didn’t get enough attention. Through he has shown brilliance at times, I don’t know if it will last. He’s already shown kinks in his armor but we can only wait and see for now.
