ESPN’s Keith Law recently released his Top 100 Prospects list and ranked Mets outfielder Fernando Martinez at number sixteen. Martinez’s big issue is staying healthy; he has yet to reach 400 plate appearances or play in 100 games during any of his pro seasons, excluding winter ball. This is a shame, because Martinez has a special bat and the injuries plus some aggressive promotions have obscured it. Martinez offers huge power potential, putting on a [...]
According to Mets.com, Mets right-hander Nelson Figueroa (Mets) didn’t surrender a hit over nine innings for the Cardenales. He fanned 10 and allowed a hit and a walk over nine-plus frames en route to the victory. Entering the 10th inning with a 1-0 lead, Figueroa gave up a single to center field to Zulia’s Alberto Callaspo (Royals). Geez… Even when a Mets pitcher throws nine hitless innings, he still can’t get a no-hitter… Not even in [...]
Remember the good ‘ole days when the New York Mets had “The Best Infield Ever” as described by a cover on Sports Illustrated? Remember who made up that infield? John Olerud, 1B; Edgardo Alfonzo, 2B; Rey Ordóñez, SS; and Robin Ventura, 3B. No other team could compete with that. The combination of number 13 and number 10 alone was incredible. How about bringing back some of that stellar defense with Fonzi? At 35 years of [...]
This sounds like a joke. Brian Cashman and Hank Steinbrenner walk onto a car lot and immediately head over to the brand new 2009 Lexus. One hour later, Omar and Jeff Wilpon walk onto a car lot. They walk right by the newer models and instead choose to look at a used 72 Pinto. I’m not going to write about the Wilpon’s being cheap. We have the 3rd highest payroll in baseball and that argument [...]
Carlos Beltran, spoke to Daily News writer Christian Red, and I’m diggin’ what he’s sayin… To begin, Beltran weighed in on the recent comments made by Cole Hamels who said the Mets are choke artists. “I just have to say, the Phillies did play well. They were champions last year. This year is a new year. I still believe we have a great team. If he says those words – when you say words like [...]
According to Sports Radio WEEI, Former Red Sox infielder Alex Cora has agreed to a one-year, $2 million deal with the New York Mets. The 33-year-old Cora played with Boston from July 7, 2005 — when he was traded from Cleveland for infielder Ramon Vazquez — through last season. Cora played in 75 games with the Red Sox last season, hitting .270 with a .371 on-base percentage. The infielder, who did a stint on the [...]
Here’s some good news from Eddie Coleman at WFAN: Spoke with Billy Wagner today. I’m sure he’s a distant memory to most Met fans since the acquisitions of K-Rod and Putz, but Wagner is doing well and progressing ahead of schedule. He’s been working out three times a week, strengthening his elbow and shoulder in his native Virginia, and he’s very close to throwing again. Coleman also adds that the timetable for his return could [...]
One of the more prominent movies of the new year stars Brad Pitt, and is about an old man who gets younger through the years instead of older. Sort of like what happened to Carlos Delgado right around the All Star break last season. Even before the injuries took their toll on Carlos Delgado, the decline began after the 2005 season when he hit .301 for The Marlins, followed by .265 in ’06, .258 in ’07 [...]
Before there was David Wright, before there was Mike Piazza, before there was Keith Hernandez, there was Tom Seaver. He was the first true superstar to wear the blue & orange, the first ‘Face of the Mets.’ And to this day, a quarter of a century after he pitched his last game for us, he still remains the fans all-time favorite. Of 800+ players who have played for the Mets, Seaver’s #41 remains the only [...]
