|David Wright is the Mets MVP so far this season|
Well Mets Fans , The New York Mets are 13-10 and 1.5 Games out of first place after the first month of the season. Of course, there is along way to go, but the Mets have surprised the baseball world early.
The Mets Manager Terry Collins has impressed me filling in the early voids of players that have been hurt. He has changed lineups around , but what's more impressive is that he gets every ounce of effort out of his young players and that's what makes the Mets fun to watch. I Never thought he get the job done in New York but has shown he can handle everything openly and candidly.
The Catching abilities of Josh Thole look like they have improved and his bat has been hot of late (.317). The problem with Thole is going to be if he can hit left handed pitching all season as he is batting right now .417 vs lefties. It looks like Mike Nickeas is not going to be much of a factor in the offensive department.
At First base, Ike Davis has been slumping.. and his average reflects that (.185). Ike needs to breakout in May and there have been signs that he will do so. He has batted .317 in the last 7 days....
Daniel Murphy is starting to look like a second basemen on the field defensively. He has never looked bad at the plate, just never really had a permanent position . Call me crazy, but I think Daniel Murphy is the type of player that can win a batting tittle...if he stays healthy!
Ruben Tejada, not Jose Reyes has been the focal point so far this season. Tejada's .299 batting average with 8 2B's has been impressive and looks like nothing has fazed him since Reyes' departure. By the way, Jose Reyes is batting .220 and in his last seven days he is batting just .190. Look like the Mets have made the right move so far not to sign him, but it is early to tell.
What more is there to say about third basemen David Wright. David Wright has been the MVP of the NY Mets so far this April batting .389 with 4 HR's and 14 RBI's. He looks to be a lock for the All-Star Game and maybe MVP if he keeps his numbers up. He is also playing with a broken pinkie which is also pretty impressive. The Mets must sign him long term and not let him get away like Jose Reyes did...
