Every time I want to complain about this guy, he turns around and does something great. During Zach Wheeler's first game against the Braves (19 June 13), Recker committed a throwing error and looked bad in his first couple of trips to the plate. Then he goes and slugs a two-run homer and adds a single for good measure late in the contest.

Recker must practice Yogi Berra's philosophy when it comes to achieving positive results: "It ain't over 'til it's over."

He has a lower ERA than Robert Carson.

I like Recker I lot. He's clutch. There were a few times at different points last season that I thought he should be the Mets' starting catcher.

Tonight, on a whim, I looked up the 2013 game logs for Recker, John Buck, and Travis D'Arnaud. The Mets record in Recker's appearances: 27- 23 / in Starts: 20-14. The Mets record in Buck's appearances: 44-66 / in Starts: 42-60. The Mets record in D'Arnaud's appearances: 11-20 / in Starts: 11-19.

No wonder I like him. Plus he's clutch.

I remember a game this year when David Wright got hurt and Terry Collins had no one else to play third base and put Recker in at third. Did I dream that? Cause there is no record of him appearing at third base anywhere! I pray David is not hurt too badly and can come back ASAP but if he can't why not try Recker at third?? He has some power which the Mets really need right now.

Anthony Recker cannot hit. Plawecki has to play every day in the minors? Why? He has grown a lot in his 60-plus starts for Mets this year. He can play 1-2 games a week subbing for Travis D. I don't want to see Recker on this team anymore batting .130. He stinks. Let's get Duffy Dyer or Charlie O'Brien or Mackey "I can't throw the ball back to the pitcher" Sasser out of retirement before we give this scrub another at bat. Sorry but as Dan Patrick said - You, ARE you are not good.
