Elephant Rumblings: Mark Canha details the differences between New York and Oakland

Going from a Rockies Rule 5 draftee that was immediately traded to the A’s in 2014, to a reliable face in the Athletics lineup for seven years, to signing a two-year deal with the Mets this offseason, Mark Canha has had a success story of an MLB career so far. But moving from the tightly budgeted A’s to the exorbitantly flush New York Mets has shown Canha the disparity for players between teams.

Mark Canha staying hot helps Mets put hint of losing streak to bed

So much has been made about the Mets’ propensity for winning series so far this year as a foundation for why they’ve surged to an early lead in the N.L. East. And that has clearly been a good thing: heading into Thursday’s matinee in Washington, D.C., the Mets were 8-0-1 in their first 10 series. That’s helpful. Just as important — and probably more meaningful — is this: The Mets had lost back-to-back games only once this year. Every threat of a losing streak has been quickly tied off with a tourniquet. And the Mets wanted to do that again Thursday....

Mets' Mark Canha: Powers Mets' offense

Canha went 3-for-4 with a solo home run, three RBI and two runs scored Thursday against the Nationals. Canha delivered a two-RBI single in the first inning and then followed that up with his second home run of the season in the ninth frame. He entered the contest with only two hits across his last 20 at-bats while striking out at a 27.3 percent clip. However, Canha snapped out of the cold spell Thursday, and he is hitting .313/.376/.398 to go along with 12 RBI and 10 runs scored across 93 plate appearances on the campaign.

Mets' Mark Canha: Socks first homer of 2022

Canha went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Monday's 5-2 loss to Atlanta. He took Max Fried deep in the third inning, Canha's first long ball as a Met. The veteran outfielder hit second for the first time this season after spending most of his time so far toward the bottom of the order, but his .356/.433/.424 slash line through 17 games suggests manager Buck Showalter would be better off keeping Canha near the top.
