In this week’s Get To Know a Prospect, we will take a look at a 22 year old catcher who, although he is on the DL right now, in the last two seasons has started to make some noise in the Mets system as a catcher to watch. This catcher goes by the name of Josh Thole. The Mets drafted him in 2005 in the 13th round and that year he played his first “season” […]
Well I finally have a day off for the first time in a little over a week and half from my Summer Job as a Sleep-away Camp Counselor, and today is the first day that I have been able to get outside news about basically anything. (You can hear about my waking up from a week and a half without Mets news here) Anyway, once a week for the next 7 weeks on Fridays I […]
Right now the Electronic Entertainment Expo, or E3 is going on and it was announced that there will be a new Rock Band out this year which will focus on the Beatles. If you are unfamiliar with the series, Rock Band is very similar to Guitar Hero where the game plays a song and the players have to match up generally the rhythms with guitar, drums and microphone controllers. This game features the Beatles so […]
Here are some statistical achievements and even numbers some Mets players could pass this year (In no Particular Order): Sheffield 500 HR Castillo 1500 G Delgado 1500 RBI Beltran 1000 RBI Reyes 1000 H Delgado 500 2B Delgado 500 HR Wright 200 2B Wright 500 RBI Wright 100 SB Reyes 200 2B Reyes 300 SB Check 213 Miles From Shea!
Generally teams have to think of creative ways to fill the stands (or, corporations think of creative ways for teams to fill the stands) and this year more than ever this will need to happen. I have spent some time going through the promotion schedules for April for about every team, and I have picked out some promotions that are eye catching, or just not your run-of-the-mill free T-Shirt (however, there is nothing wrong with […]
Pelfrey was spectacular yesterday, furthermore showing why the Mets have strength in their rotation, but he also showed something a little more yesterday, his new pitch. From hanging around Livan Hernandez, Pelfrey has developed a new sinker for left handed batters, who usually do damage against Pelfrey. The New York Times actually calls it a front door sinker, basically, it looks good, goes out and comes back, which makes left handed batters not swing at […]
Redding has been shut down, Garcia has been pretty terrible and Livan Hernandez has been tolerable. That is the state of the Mets fifth rotation spot. The struggles of these three has left the door open for Niese, and the door possibly open for bringing back Pedro but there is another pitcher who is starting to impress in my mind and that is Figueroa. Figueroa has pitched 8 innings this spring between the Mets and […]
Mike Pelfrey was a highly touted prospect. Brad Holt is a prospect that started off not getting as much attention as Pelfrey, but now is starting to. Following a similar path, in my opinion will be Dillon Gee. Gee has been with the Mets since 2007, when he was 21 years old. He has always had good stuff, and he is starting to slowly get recognize. If he pulls off another minor league year like […]
Jerry Manuel made a very casual comment the other day that he was going to try changing things in the order to not only give Castillo more confidence but also to make Reyes a better player, because really, you are only the leadoff batter once a game. If only there was a way for Reyes to bat leadoff, and yet still feel like he is batting second sometimes. Well there is a way, its sometimes […]
