Ever since I experienced Mike Piazza's post 9/11 home run to beat the Braves in person at Shea, I have been a die-hard Mets fan and exhaustive lover of baseball. I am currently a student at Ithaca College where I am a pitcher on the varsity baseball team. My pitching idols include Sandy Koufax and Tom Seaver. My dream is to one day pitch on the mound at Citi Field wearing the orange and blue. Let's Go Mets!

Breakout Prediction: Josh Smoker

Left-handed reliever Josh Smoker had an impressive 2016. Playing in a very hitter-friendly environment with the Las Vegas 51s, he pitched 57 innings, striking out 81 and walking 18 with a 4.11 ERA. That impressive 12.8 K/9 was blown away, however, when after he was called up to the Bigs, he struck out 25 batters […]

Breakout Prediction: Hansel Robles

I wholeheartedly agree with everyone who says the Mets need to bring in a late-inning reliever to supplement Addison Reed and Jeurys Familia. However, with a recent report saying the Mets want two prospects for Jay Bruce, there is a possibility that they might not bring in a player like that. If that possibility comes […]

Will 2017 Be Lucas Duda’s Last Season As A Met?

New York Mets first baseman Lucas Duda is entering his final year of team control in 2017. This is the time the front office, as well as the fan base, debates if the Mets should offer him a contract extension or let him go.
