As noted yesterday by the NY Daily News, Andy Martino shares that the Mets will be present at the upcoming showcase for 23 year old Cuban defector Erisbel Arrubarruena who plays shortstop and we all know that at this point the Mets could use a good shortstop to man the left side of the infield. Baseball America’s Ben Badler reported last month on Arruebarruena’s and shared a scouting report on the defensive wizard: At 6 feet, 195 pounds, Arruebarruena has clean […]
Pittsburgh Pirates prospect Evan Chambers passed away in his sleep this past weekend as noted in a statement by Pirates GM Neal Huntington. The Pirates signed Chambers after selecting him in the 3rd round of the 2009 June Amateur draft from Hillsborough Community College (Tampa, FL.). He played in 5 seasons within the Pirates farm system, but he missed most of 2013 with a broken foot. Chambers was remembered around baseball, as well from some of […]
Wally Backman will remain with the Mets organization according to what two sources told Andy Martino of the Daily News. With the Mets offering Terry Collins a contract extension, it became apparent that Backman would not be offered the job. At first it was not sure that he would return to the organization, but there was speculation that he might. Players that I have spoken with have held Backman in high regard and that he is a great […]
As reported by the Star Banner, Ted Beck writes that Mets scouts and coaches recently conducted a private workout for standout lefthanded first baseman, Dash Winningham, who hit .429, with 11 home runs and 36 RBI’s last season while playing for Athletic Director/Coach Tommy Bond at Trinity Catholic. Winningham, who led Trinity to the Final Four, has signed on to play with Florida Gulf Coast University. The school is most recently recognized as the home of Dunk City, […]

Last week, the Mets the added left-hander Steven Matz and right-handers Jeff Walters, Jacob deGrom and Erik Goeddel to the 40 Man Roster, protecting those players from being selected in next month’s Rule 5 Draft. Since then, Goeddel has spawned more than a dozen emails to MMO as Mets fans were curious to know more about this talented pitching prospect who the Mets feared would be swiped up in a heartbeat if left unprotected. Erik […]
There was an interesting post today by Adam Rubin, where he writes that free-agent reliever David Aardsma shared his displeasure with players that cheat the game, come back from suspension, and are rewarded with huge contracts. He doesn’t name any player by name, but most recently Jhonny Peralta signed with the Cardinals for 4 years, $52 million contract, so anyone can assume that maybe he is referring to that contract. But I have to agree with Aardsma, […]
If money was not an issue and the Mets could have any offensive free agent on the market, it would be really cool to see certain players donning a Mets uniform in 2014. This is only a dream scenario at this point, unless the Wilpons somehow came across a ton of money that they could spend with no worries. But we all know that will never happen, because as Mets fans we were never meant to […]
