Larry Brooks penned a thought provoking column in the New York Post that magnifies the dilemma facing the Met front office in deciding how to play out the remainder of the 2013 season. A decent month of July baseball energized the Met faithful and made the Citi Field product a whole lot more satisfying to the palette. Yet, a reality check of any sort, especially with the loss of David Wright for an extended period […]
Wilmer Flores has Las Vegas sitting at the top of the division… So much of the New York Met sales pitch over the last several years has been a message of hope. Met fans were asked to think forward as the franchise went about the business of establishing a culture and practices geared at making their team competitive year in and year out. The first order of business we were told was to vastly improve […]
Like the U.S. during the Cold War, the New York Mets continue to build an arsenal of long range power arms. A ‘shock and awe’ strike capacity with a first wave including weaponry labeled Matt Harvey, Zack Wheeler, Jenrry Mejia, Rafael Montero, Noah Syndergaard, Logan Verrett, Jack Leathersich, Jeff Walters, and Cory Mazzoni overpower lesser named rockets in the Mets armory. Met fans should not discount a left-handed firearm in their minor league system named […]
It’s almost unfair. To watch Pedro Feliciano work a pitchers mound against young Double-A batters is to watch a master craftsman applying his craft to a gaggle of apprentices. Feliciano defines what it means to pitch, not to throw a baseball. The former workhorse of the major league Mets, the 36-year old lefthanded relief specialist is working to prove he still has something left, something that could matter at the big league level. So far, […]
I’m sitting two rows behind the home dugout on the first base side on Autograph Session and Home Run Derby day, the day before the Eastern League All-Star game in New Britain, Connecticut. A near 90-degree sun is beating down on a glorious summer day. A huge throng of fans snake from the hallway below the stands, up a stairwell in left field and then back down in front of the third base dugouts waiting […]
The names keep popping up like popcorn. Wherever you look a baseball analyst or soothsayer includes the name of another Met minor league prospect on a list of up-and-comers. These Met prospects are not confined to the pitching core. Names like Flores, Puello, Taijeron, Dykstra, Centeno, and Plawecki are tossed to and fro as promising future Mets. Joining the milieu, Jayce Boyd. On Friday, Nathaniel Stoltz posted a piece on FanGraphs identifying five minor league […]
It’s pretty easy rooting for Josh Satin. All the kid has really ever wanted to do is play baseball, and wherever he’s played, he’s excelled. Two things remain consistent about Satin’s baseball run over a lengthy span of years. The kid can hit and more often than not, he’s selected as an all-star. Satin was a three time all-star selection as a Wolverine for the Harvard Westlake School in California. He continued racking up huge […]
The Binghamton Mets, one of the hottest professional baseball teams at any level, are causing a stir in the baseball world. Friday morning, Jim Weed, the General Manager of the B-Mets, will be a guest on Tip-Off, a sports radio show that can be heard on WIOX 91.3 FM. Weed will discuss his climb through the B-Met organization from an intern our of college to the team’s GM chair, the general manager’s position, minor league […]
The storyline for the Binghamton Mets Sunday was a four home run barrage, solid pitching and a 7-2 victory over the Erie Seawolves to improve their record to 46-28 and win their ninth series in a row. For New York Met fans the news was all about Noah Syndergaard. Syndergaard, a 6’4” flame throwing, right-handed pitcher was one of the pieces in the R.A. Dickey trade. After starting his Met career in Advanced-A St. Lucie, he was promoted […]
