Discount canadian cialis  

Discount canadian cialis Lucas Duda is one very large enigma to Mets fans. Discount canadian cialis We see a strapping young man who stands 6’4” 250+ lbs and wonder, discount canadian cialis when will it all come together for Duda, discount canadian cialis when will we see 30+ HR’s and 90+ RBI. Discount canadian cialis Well at 27 years old if it doesn’t come this year it mostly likely will never happen for Duda.

Discount canadian cialis 27 years of age is a great age to be unless you are an unproven big league baseball player. Discount canadian cialis It’s an age where you are hitting your playing prime, discount canadian cialis where if you are a quality baseball player, discount canadian cialis everything comes together, discount canadian cialis it all starts to click, discount canadian cialis you have a good read on the opposing pitching staffs, discount canadian cialis you have a good idea of your hitting zone, discount canadian cialis you know when to be aggressive and when to lay off the breaking balls you chased as a greenhorn. Discount canadian cialis It’s when the game starts to slow down just a bit for you to manage it effectively.  This is the season for all of this to come to Lucas Duda at the plate, discount canadian cialis if it doesn’t the Mets are in for a long season and Duda could be one in a long line of young Mets outfielders to be discarded on the side of the road.

Discount canadian cialis I’ve looked a few of the projections for Duda for the coming season and while there seems to be a bit of an uptick in his power numbers by some, discount canadian cialis is it enough t to keep him as a big league starter?:

Discount canadian cialis PECOTA .251/.333/.430  15 HR 54 RBI

Discount canadian cialis ZiPS  .248/.330/.418  18HR  74 RBI

Discount canadian cialis Bill James  .268/.356/.454   18HR  69 RBI

Discount canadian cialis  

Discount canadian cialis James projects Duda with a better on base and slugging percentage and I kind of agree with that. Discount canadian cialis Duda has improved his eye at the plate, discount canadian cialis swinging at fewer pitches outside the strike zone (30.1, discount canadian cialis 29.8 and 35.3 last season) and his base on balls rate has gone up each season as well. Discount canadian cialis But it’s the power numbers that give me pause on Duda as his Isolated Power Average dropped from .189 in 2011 to a pedestrian .150 last season. Discount canadian cialis Being that the Mets lineup is still in flux-I don’t think Terry Collins knows who will be his 1-2 in the lineup yet-where Duda bats will determine how many RBI opportunities he gets, discount canadian cialis I figure Duda to bat 6th so the opportunity to drive in runs will be there for him.

Discount canadian cialis Hitting just 15-18 home runs will not be acceptable this season from Duda, discount canadian cialis the Mets have to see an increase to at least mid-twenty’s if the team is going to make any noise this season and again at 27 years old, discount canadian cialis it’s time for Lucas to bust out.

Discount canadian cialis The dilemma is for Duda to stay in the lineup he has got to hit and be a run producer as his defense is, discount canadian cialis and there is no way to sugar coat it, discount canadian cialisdreadful. Discount canadian cialis The Mets do not need Duda to be Barry Bonds-like in left field but he needs to be able to get a good initial jump on balls and just make the routine play. Discount canadian cialis In Duda’s defense (no pun intended) he is a first baseman by trade who is still learning a new position, discount canadian cialis so I have to cut him some slack.

Discount canadian cialis The intangible in the whole Lucas Duda equation is his mind set. Discount canadian cialis When Duda first came up to the Mets, discount canadian cialis it took a while for him to become comfortable in the major league/NYC setting. Discount canadian cialis Terry Collins has mentioned that Duda has to get a grasp of being a big leaguer and now as one of the young vets on this Mets team, discount canadian cialis he has to be a leader. Discount canadian cialis That doesn’t mean he has to be vocal or a rah-rah type, discount canadian cialis which is not his nature but Duda has to step up this season and be a difference maker so the club and Mets fans don’t have to suffer through another disappointing season.

Discount canadian cialis Let’s all hope that 2013 becomes The Summer of Duda.

Cialis canadian cost Today pitchers and catchers will report to St. Cialis canadian cost Lonseome and by Wednesday the Mets position players will start arriving as well and training camp 2012 will get under way. Cialis canadian cost So what am I looking for this spring from our beloved Mets? I’m glad you asked:

Cialis canadian cost Ownership

Cialis canadian cost Please Freddy, cialis canadian cost Uncle Saul and Jeffey I’m begging you guys, cialis canadian cost please stay away from camp. Cialis canadian cost Can we please take the focus off your upcoming court case and your financial problems and let this camp be about baseball, cialis canadian cost baseball and more baseball. Cialis canadian cost Can you give your manager, cialis canadian cost coaches and players a chance to get ready for this season and to prove the naysayers wrong about how non-competitive this club will be? Your team is in good hands with Terry Collins, cialis canadian cost Sandy Alderson and their staffs, cialis canadian cost so stay up here in New York and work with your attorneys to get your game plan ready for the March 19th trail. Cialis canadian cost I’m sure Sandy Koufax will understand.

Cialis canadian cost Manager

Cialis canadian cost Got to love the work ethic of Terry Collins and the transformation he has made as a big league manager. Cialis canadian cost Collins has been in camp with Johan Santana, cialis canadian cost working with the Ace and forming a bond with him like he did with Carlos Beltran.  Just as TC earned the trust and respect of Beltran, cialis canadian cost he is working towards having the same relationship with Santana. Cialis canadian cost There is more to managing a team than knowing when to double switch and Collins has realized that and has  proven he is the right man to manage the Mets.

Cialis canadian cost Ike Davis asked the question last week, cialis canadian cost “why does everyone think  we’re going to suck” and this is the rallying cry the manager needs to use to his and the teams advantage. Cialis canadian cost When he addresses the team he should make it known that the majority of media and fans do think the Mets suck and the only ones who believe the team is any good, cialis canadian cost are the guys right he in this clubhouse. Cialis canadian cost If each and every player on this team doesn’t have the back of their teammates, cialis canadian cost they’ll fail as no one else will stick up for them.   

Cialis canadian cost With a year on the job, cialis canadian cost Collins knows who needs motivation and who is self-motivated and that’s a big plus. Cialis canadian cost TC as well, cialis canadian cost has to push fundamentals this spring to the point that the players get angry. Cialis canadian cost He needs to push the point that it’s not always the most talented team that wins but the most prepared team that is always right there. Cialis canadian cost If the Mets continue with their poor execution on the field, cialis canadian cost it will be a long season.

Cialis canadian cost Starting Pitching

Cialis canadian cost The only starting pitcher I have any confidence in right now is R.A. Cialis canadian cost Dickey. Cialis canadian cost Everyone else has a ton of questions by their name. Cialis canadian cost So many if’s with this group and the biggest problem is there isn’t much competition in camp for jobs in the rotation.  Sure Chris Schwinden or Miguel Batista could swipe the 5th spot from Dillon Gee or Matt Harvey could just blow everyone away this spring to force his way into the rotation but that’s a long shot.

Cialis canadian cost As far as Santana is concerned try to put his starting the season on the big league roster out of your mind. Cialis canadian cost Even if he pitches well this spring there a couple of things that will hasten his return early in the season, cialis canadian cost The cold weather is one, cialis canadian cost especially the dumb move by MLB to pay April games in the East at night, cialis canadian cost and the other is the limited innings/pitch count that Santana will be under. Cialis canadian cost No way Santana, cialis canadian cost even if he shows he’s ready to come back, cialis canadian cost pitches more than 80-85 pitches or 5 innings, cialis canadian cost those pitching restriction will put a lot of pressure on the Mets bullpen early in the season and with the unknown of the rest of this staff besides Dickey, cialis canadian cost the Mets and Terry Collins can’t risk burning the bullpen by Memorial Day. Cialis canadian cost Best case scenario is Santana stays in extended spring training and makes a few minor league starts for St. Cialis canadian cost Lucie and makes back to the big leagues by end of May early June and that’s being real optimistic.    

Cialis canadian cost As much as Mets fans are hanging on every Santana bullpen session the guys we really need to watch are Mike Pelfrey and Jon Niese as it will be the performance of these two pitchers that will determine if this a season of surprise or of transition.  For Pelfrey if he can’t be effective it will get very ugly for him this season with the fan base and with the front office. Cialis canadian cost As for Niese, cialis canadian cost it’s time to put the big boy baseball pants on a prove that he has the makeup, cialis canadian cost conditioning and ability to be a  solid major league pitcher. Cialis canadian cost Niese doesn’t have to be an Ace but he has to show some stamina and guile to get to the 6th and 7th innings of starts.

Cialis canadian cost Bullpen

Cialis canadian cost It’s been revamped and the back end (Frank Francisco, cialis canadian cost Ramon Ramirez and Jon Rauch) is a huge improvement over last year’s relievers, cialis canadian cost but if Manny Acosta, cialis canadian cost Bobby Parnell or D.J. Cialis canadian cost Carrasco (or someone playing the role of Carrasco) starts making frequent appearances, cialis canadian cost it will be a long season. Cialis canadian cost The effectiveness of the Mets bullpen will depend on the Mets starting pitchers who again (I know I’m belaboring this point) have to step up.

Cialis canadian cost Defense

Cialis canadian cost Last season the Mets were one of the worst defensive teams in baseball, cialis canadian cost so for 2012 there is no place else to go but up hopefully. Cialis canadian cost All the talk about David Wright has been about his regaining his offensive punch which missed the real story with Wright and that’s the steady decline of his defense. Cialis canadian cost I know the defensive metrics are not the be all end all but according to Bill James Online and their defensive plus/minus rankings Wright has been an atrocious third baseman the last three seasons :

Cialis canadian cost 2009 -11

Cialis canadian cost 2010 -10

Cialis canadian cost 2011 -5

Cialis canadian cost  

Cialis canadian cost Not only has Wright cost the Mets runs at 3rd base but he has had trouble with balls hit to his right and his throws have been less than accurate to first base, cialis canadian cost again defensive metrics have their flaws but so does Wright at the hot corner.

Cialis canadian cost The catching situation stinks as well. Cialis canadian cost Josh Thole still has not mastered the art of catching especially blocking balls in the dirt and getting better footwork in attempting to throw out would be base stealers. Cialis canadian cost Word is new bench coach Bob Geren will be working all spring with Thole on these aspects of catching. Cialis canadian cost Mike Nickeas will be the Sunday (and presumably R.A. Cialis canadian cost Dickeys personal backstop) catcher and should bat 9th in the order when he does play. Cialis canadian cost Catching in the Mets organization is a disaster that Sandy Alderson is not only aware of put has tried hard to rectify, cialis canadian cost that was one of the reasons Jon Niese’ name was mentioned in trade talks this off season as the Mets were hoping a team with a solid young catching prospect (like the Blue Jays and their prize catching prospect Travis D’Arnaud) would take the bait

Cialis canadian cost The middle infield will be securitized a lot this season as Ruben Tejada takes over the everyday shortstop job and Daniel Murphy will try again to master the second sack. Cialis canadian cost Tejada should be stellar at short as he has very good baseball instincts and makes plays he should make. Cialis canadian cost The question will be, cialis canadian cost as it seems to be every spring for the last three years, cialis canadian cost will Daniel Murphy play at least a respectable 2nd base. Cialis canadian cost As long as he makes the routine play and is somewhat capable of turning the pivot at 2nd without getting maimed, cialis canadian cost his season will be a success.

Cialis canadian cost Ike Davis is solid at 1st base, cialis canadian cost so no worries there.

Cialis canadian cost The outfield should be markedly better with Andres Torres playing center field and a bit underrated Jason Bay in left. Cialis canadian cost The question is will Lucas Duda play a serviceable right field.  I’m trying very hard not to over use the word serviceable when talking about the Mets defenders but that’s how bad this team’s defense is when serviceable play would be an upgrade at 3rd base, cialis canadian cost 2nd base, cialis canadian cost right field and catcher.

Cialis canadian cost Breakout star of the spring

Cialis canadian cost I would love to see Kirk Nieuwenhuis have such a fabulous spring that he forces management hand to bring him North.  Many scouting reports have Capt Kirk as a corner outfielder but I’m sure once or twice a week you could play him in centerfield. Cialis canadian cost If Jason Bay continues to be awful against right handed pitching, cialis canadian cost the lefty swinging Nieuwenhuis would make a great platoon partner for Bay.

Cialis canadian cost Of course the new BIG 3 of Matt Harvey, cialis canadian cost Zack Wheeler and Jeurys Familia will be watched closely and who knows, cialis canadian cost if Harvey pitches lights out, cialis canadian cost he could take the 5th spot in the rotation from Dillion Gee but he’d have to be spectacular in order for the Mets to force the issue early in the season. Cialis canadian cost Wheeler will not be in the big league camp by the way but over at the kids table for minor leaguers but as we’ve seen in years past sometimes the minor leaguers get a invite to join the big boys especially when there are spilt squad games so keep an eye out for that.
