Darvish on His Scoreless Streak

28
"Yu Darvish is in the midst of a dominant stretch. Over his last four starts, he hasn’t allowed a run, and has pitched every inning except one for a 35-inning scoreless streak." One more reason to want a fast resolution to the Picard lawsuit.

Ultimate Base Running (UBR)

12

FanGraphs is now adding UBR as part of its WAR. It is under the "Bsr" stat column. This is retroactive from the 2002 season to the present, so fWAR has been recalculated. Some players, like Angel Pagan, really benefited from this. his 2010 fWAR was 4.9, but now it is 5.4.

Alderson Is in No Hurry to Face Future

"Behind the calm exterior of the calculating analyst who many people assume will make the key trades meant to enhance the team’s future over its present, roars the heart of a fierce competitor. Day to day, game to game, Alderson wants to win, and he wants to win now." - David Waldstein, New York Times

How did Mets settle on black uniforms?

45
"But throughout this 13-year black-and-blue war, one question has gone unanswered: What was the genesis of the Mets' BFBS program? Did it start with team owner Fred Wilpon? Equipment manager Charlie Samuels? Some grunt in the marketing department? The MLB Properties office? At long last, Uni Watch has the answer. And it's a revealing story -- not just about the Mets, but about how uniform decisions get made in general." - Paul Lukas

Three Years Later, Top Dominican Arm Signs With Mets

9
"The Mets have agreed to terms with Luis Mateo for $150,000, which should end a three-year process for the 21-year-old Dominican righthander with a mid-90s fastball to get signed." Ben Badler of Baseball America

Nieuwenhuis draws DePo praise

9
"Obviously he's having a great year," DePodesta said. "There's no real story there. The thing that is interesting to me about it is that he's one of the rare guys that as he moves up levels, he continues to get better. His performance gets better at each level. That's generally rare. But he's a guy out of Azusa [Pacific University]. He didn't play in the SEC or something like that in college. He's sort of still figuring it out a little bit. "His power has gone up consistently at each level. He's either maintained or increased his plate discipline at every level. And when you can be improving your patience and your power at the same time, that's pretty good, and pretty rare. For all those reasons I'm excited about him even beyond just the standard batting line, because he just continues to get better all the time." - Adam Rubin

Wright mum on injury

"Terry Collins thinks David Wright’s struggles at the plate are related to injuring his upper back/neck area making a diving tag on Houston’s Carlos Lee on April 19." - Adam Rubin
