I had a chance to do a Q&A with NY Mets catcher Mike Nickeas the other day. Mike was nice enough to take the time to field a whole slew of questions I threw at him, regarding his defense, his hitting, working with Josh Thole, and lot’s of other stuff. Mike is working hard this off-season getting ready for what should prove a very big year for him, and his answers are very interesting indeed. [...]
With all the mock drafts coming out these days, there is plenty of information surfacing about who the top picks will be, and what their budding skill-sets are like. But what about the Mets? What sort of draft strategy will suit them best heading into the MLB Amateur Draft of 2012? There is the old school acumen of: “take the best available player each time you pick regardless of position.” But that goes by the [...]
I contacted Rob Carson, left-handed pitcher for the New York Mets by phone on Monday, less than a week before he is due to leave for spring training in Port. St. Lucie. This year spring training will be a little different for Carson, because he will be in the big league camp for the first time, a result of being added to the 40-man Major League Roster this winter. Rob and I discussed a myriad of [...]
Everybody has their own definition of “sleeper.” Mine is the player who comes out of nowhere, the one without all the hype and high pedigree. I’m looking for the mutt’s. The brawlers. The over-achievers. The gamers. The winners. I’m looking for, not a prospect necessarily although he could be a fringy one, but a guy that is about to shed a mantle of mediocrity or obscurity, and join the elite. I am looking for the player [...]
With the news that LHP Josh Edgin has been moved to major league camp and has a chance to make the Opening Day roster, here’s an interview with Josh that we originally posted on February 2, 2012 I caught up to NY Mets minor league pitcher Josh Edgin the other day. Josh has been enjoying the off-season, and just threw his first bullpen, getting his arm ready for spring training. Everyone is aware of the [...]
I got in touch with NY Mets 2011 3rd round draft choice Logan Verrett the other day. Verrett a 6’3″ right-hander, is in his final off-season preparations before heading out to spring training at Port St. Lucie in less than two weeks. Logan was nice enough to fill us in on his feelings on being drafted by the Mets, his record-setting college career, his pitching arsenal, and his expectations for his first professional season, which [...]
I was able to get in a quick Q&A with NY Mets shortstop prospect Phillip Evans the other day, just weeks before he has to get ready to head for Port St. Lucie for the start of Spring Training. The Mets got a steal when they plucked Evans in the 15th round of last years draft. Other teams had been scared off due to a commitment by Evans to attend San Diego State, but just [...]
