This Spring we’ve gotten to look at some of our young prospects and they have impressed fans, the media and the team. The reports that the farm system was dead have been greatly exaggerated it seems. Fernando Martinez, Ike Davis, Jon Niese and Jenrry Mejia are having great springs, so of course there has been plenty of talk about them joining the big team once camp breaks. Coming into Spring Training, the fifth sport in the […]
As my excitement for the new season grows stronger with each passing day, there are still several questions and question marks that occupy my mind. That is to be expected with the season we had to suffer through last year. But 2010 brings new possibilities, though injuries have already begun scaring the fan base. Beltran is out for at least the first month of the season, and nobody really knows when Jose Reyes will be given […]
Met Nation, we are officially nearing the time when players need to start putting themselves into game shape mentally. Not just physically getting their work in, but mentally preparing for the rigors of 162 games that count. (and hopefully a few more after that) I feel a post season berth is well within reach. It’s the old adage that “Hope springs eternal.” I think if our pitching stays healthy we’ll stay in contention. We all […]
Mike Pelfrey was at it again Wednesday, tantalizing Met teammates, management, fans and writers with his Grapefruit League performance against the Red Sox. ‘Big Pelf’ has seemingly been on the precipice of greatness since being drafted by the Mets in the 1st round, 9th overall, in 2005. But nearly five years later questions remain about the talented young hurler… Yesterday, I treated myself to multiple articles from Anthony McCarron from the Daily News and Steve […]
Yes here comes another post about the Mets personnel choices. We are two weeks away from first pitch so why not. This post will not be about whom I feel should make the team; my problem is with how the Mets make their choices. Besides the “core” that everyone keeps talking about. By this I mean Wright, Reyes, Bay, K Rod, and Santana. Should anyone’s job be safe right now? Has anyone else on this team […]
Grapefruit action seems to be dulling the panic that echoed throughout Mets camp following news of Jose Reyes missing possibly 8 weeks of action due to a thyroid condition. Frankly the club has shown many positives in pre-season action, the negativity was clearly premature and their greatest area of concern, pitching, has shown great promise. That said, I tend to withhold all judgments until regular season action begins in less than a month. Preseason is a […]
We all know the Mets added a power bat in Jason Bay, are still dealing with injuries/medical issues to key players like Jose Reyes and Carlos Beltran, and have huge holes in the starting rotation. But I haven’t heard as much talk about the bullpen. A year ago, almost to the day, I wrote a blog on this site about how the Mets’ revamped bullpen, a terrible weakness in 2008, would pile up K’s and […]
Pretty soon, all the pre-season bantering will end and the regular season will be underway. There are 19 days left between now and opening day on Sun, April 4th. The Amazins play 20 games, including two split squad, and most notably, a fitting test for them are the 4 games against the Cards, which will certainly feature near full regular season lineups. The real talk for now is what’s happening on the field in PSL with […]
This is the time during Spring Training that all Major League teams start to cut down their rosters, sending some players down to their Minor League affiliates, while others are sent on their way right out of the organization. The funny thing about this process is that there are very few surprises as to who stays and who goes. Sometimes a young player with just a little minor league experience makes such an outstanding impression that […]
