Welcome back for part two in the MMO series where we bring you the depth charts for each position in the Mets minor league system. We started off last week with the First-basemen, and continue the series this week with the five best Catchers in the Mets organization. It has been well documented that the Mets are thin in catching throughout the organization, but is there anyone already here that might be about to erupt [...]
As you probably already know, the Mets affiliation with the AAA International League franchise in Buffalo came to a screeching halt at the conclusion of the 2012 season, and the Mets will be forced to play their AAA games in the Pacific Coast League for the Las Vegas 51′s beginning in 2013. The Mets were only in Buffalo for four years this time from 2009 – 2012, and during that time they never finished any higher [...]
In following MMO’s steadfast desire to provide you with the best in-depth analysis of the Mets Minor League farm system, we would like to introduce you to a brand new weekly feature that will appear throughout the off-season. As you can see it’s called: Mets Minor League Positional Depth Chart, and when all is said-and-done you’ll have a much better understanding of the specific strengths and weaknesses of the farm system, as well as an [...]
I was reading the excellent post by Joe D that was inspired by a statement from Metsie entitled, “Are The Players Turning The Tables On The Mets Front Office?” But I felt one key factor was missing from the summations made in the piece and on the comment thread that ensued. One chapter in Mets recent history that needs to be pointed out again, was the deep, wide-stretching amount of damage Sandy did when he [...]
Cyclone right-hander Hansel Robles took the hill for the Cyclones on Friday night at MCU Park at Coney Island in the New York Penn League semi-finals opener against Hudson Valley. Robles shocked the crowd, his teammates, and even his manager, as he hurled a complete game four-hit shutout, walking none and striking out ten, to defeat the Hudson Valley Renegades by a score of 4-0 in game one of the best-of-three series. It was Robles’ [...]

He answers to the name “Rook” as in rookie. He has a smile that lights up the world. He has talent to match. He has an easy way about him that belies the competitive edge that lurks beneath the surface. He is a baseball player, a prodigy, and a Met. His name is Gavin Cecchini, and he has just arrived in Brooklyn to help out down the stretch as the Cyclones battle for a [...]
Welcome back for the Monday-morning-quarterback edition of the ultra-cool MMO feature: Mets Minors Beat. What the heck is that? You might very well say. It is a labor of love, and in it you will see stuff about the Mets minor leagues that you absolutely won’t find anywhere else. Over the last several months the Beat has come to you twice every week, and if you’ve been reading it all along you have been kept [...]
Updated Post 5:00 PM The Mets demoted right-hander Collin McHugh to Triple-A Buffalo despite a stellar debut on Thursday in which he tossed seven scoreless innings and allowed just two hits and a walk while fanning nine. The Mets needed the roster spot for the return of Jeremy Hefner who was on a three-day paternity leave. McHugh will now have to spend 10 days in the minors before being eligible to return again which means he won’t be [...]
