For those of you that missed it, there was a strange play that took place during the Detroit Tigers’ 7-5 win over the Kansas City Royals on Wednesday night. Quite frankly, I’ve never seen anything like it before. Here’s what happened along with the accompanying video from MLB.com. During the third inning with the Tigers trailing 4-2 and base runners Prince Fielder on third and Victor Martinez at second, Jhonny Peralta lined a single to […]
Jim Callis of Baseball America had little fun this morning with his mailbag piece and fielded the following interesting question: If you had to make a 25-man roster using at most one player from any farm system, what would it look like? To make it more interesting, let’s say that the team doesn’t have to be competitive this year, so far-away prospects are fine if that’s who you want. C: Mike Zunino, Mariners. 1B: Christian Yelich, Marlins. […]
The Mets will have $6.99 million to spend on the 2013 Draft this June. This according to an announcement by Major League Baseball. The approximate $7 million represents the tenth largest sum among all MLB teams and covers their first 11 selections in the draft through ten rounds. The Astros, who have the No. 1 overall pick, will have the largest bonus pool at $11,698,800, while the Nationals have the smallest pool at $2,737,200. The Mets have […]
Las Vegas manager Wally Backman had some nice things to say about Mets catching prospect Travis d’Arnaud after his impressive debut last night against Sacramento. In the 51′s season-opening 10-5 victory over the River Cats, the 24-year old prospect went 2-for-3 with two doubles, two walks, a career-high four runs scored and an RBI. “I think it’s just a matter of time before he gets to the big leagues,” 51s manager Wally Backman said. “He […]
Ken Davidoff of the New York Post has a somewhat critical take on the Mets under Sandy Alderson, and yesterday he spoke to a rival NL executive who told him this: “The big thing for me is it feels like the Mets are stuck in some kind of purgatory,” an official from another NL team said recently, on the condition of anonymity. “They didn’t blow up their club like Houston did, but they also aren’t […]
Updated by Joe D. at 7:30 PM Most of you read my initial thoughts on Wheeler-gate early this morning; I think it was overblown. I wanted to just say one last thing in lieu of Sandy Alderson’s comments regarding the situation while a guest on WFAN. Here is what he said: “We didn’t want this to escalate into an issue,” Alderson said. “We have had extensive conversations with both players. We think it’s done. When […]
Here is a list of Top 150 Prospects for 2013 by Minor League Ball’s John Sickels. Sickels explains that the rankings presents a balance between long-term upside and present ability, and that he tends to favor players who are closer to the majors than those who are far away. “My background is sabermetric, but my approach is to blend sabermetrics and traditional scouting,” he writes. “I may lean one way or another on a particular […]
The Daily News summarized what was a series of Mets organizational moves and promotions that took place during the offseason. Most of these moves flew under the radar, but are certainly worth noting. Many of these moves were made without much fanfare or official announcement, but they are in fact completed. Two and a half years in, and Sandy Alderson continues to structure his organization which is still sort of a hybrid of new people […]
Some of you may think of this as an odd post from me as I usually post about the minor leagues or the draft. But I came across this on MLB Trade Rumors and thought it was different and interesting. B.J. Rains is doing a series about why some MLB players chose the agents that they did. This one about David Wright naturally grabbed my attention. As you all know, Wright signed an eight-year, $138 million extension […]
