From Left Field: Give Travis d’Arnaud A Chance In The Bigs Right Away

To turn attention away from Mike Piazza and the Hall of Fame vote for just a minute, let’s discuss the future Mike Piazza, or so we hope. The Mets acquired Travis d’Arnaud, their catcher of the future, in the trade that sent R.A. Dickey to the Toronto Blue Jays. But why can’t the future be […]

Through The Fence Baseball posted their updated 2013 Mock Draft yesterday. The first round of the 2013 MLB draft keeps shrinking they say. When the Los Angeles Angels signed free agent Josh Hamilton a couple of weeks ago, they lost their first-round pick.

MMO Flashback: Changing the Dynamic, One Catcher at a Time

With the recent acquisition of Travis d’Arnaud, the Mets added one of the top two catching prospects in the minors, the other being Mike Zunino.
