Welcome to the third installment of the official MMO 2012 Mets Top 20 Prospects list, featuring RHP Akeel Morris of the Kingsport Mets, at #18. When the Mets made Morris their 10th round pick in the 2010 draft, they were drafting a player based on pure potential. Although raw as a pitcher, the power and talent were clearly there. The only reason he was still available in the 10th round, was similar as to the reason the […]
Last June, the Mets selected RHP Michael Fulmer with the 44th overall pick in the MLB Draft. He was the supplemental first-round pick for the Yankees’ signing of Pedro Feliciano. Fulmer, 18, went 10-2 with a 0.72 ERA and 127 strikeouts in 68 innings for Deer Creek High School in his hometown of Edmond, OK. He was honored with the Ferguson Jenkins Award this year, presented to the top five high school baseball players in Oklahoma. Michael […]
I was able to interview Akeel last week and he was nice enough to answer some questions for our readers. This is what he had to say: Petey: First of all Akeel, congratulations on a terrific season in 2011. Your development over the last two seasons has been fun to watch and you have been making great progress. Thank you so much for sharing a little of your time. The readers at Mets Merized Online will […]
I recently conducted an interview with New York Mets pitcher Chris Schwinden who was kind enough to answer a few questions for me to share with our MMO community. Schwinny was totally cool and I hope you’ll leave him some nice comments. Enjoy! First of all Chris, congratulations on a terrific season in 2011! Anchoring the Bison’s rotation all year was quite an achievement, and of course being named to the mid-season AAA All-Star team was […]
Well here we go with the second installment of the Official MetsMerizedOnline 2012 Mets Top 20 Prospects list, featuring RHP Michael Fulmer of the GCL Mets, at #19. When the Mets made Fulmer their 1st round sandwich pick in the 2011 draft (44th overall), as compensation for losing Pedro Feliciano as a free-agent, many scouts said he would be a very tough sign due to a commitment to attend the University of Arkansas. The Mets […]
The 2011 Sterling Award winner at Brooklyn, Muno got off to as fast a start to his professional baseball career as anyone possibly could. After being drafted in the 8th round out of Fresno State this year, Muno signed quickly and was assigned to the Cyclones to be their everyday shortstop. He was first in the New York Penn League in batting average in 2011, hitting a cool .355, while batting out of the lead-off […]
In the on-going endeavor to compile as many stats, and as many lists as possible regarding our beloved Amazin’s, here is the NY Mets 2012 Top Ten Left-Handers in the farm system, list. In previous posts I have identified areas of weakness in the farm system at the positions of catcher, and shortstop. Here is another area that desperately needs some upgrading: left-handed pitching. Let’s hope the front office is up to the task. 1. Darin […]

One player that Sandy Alderson should target this winter is Washington Nationals catcher, and former Met farmhand, Jesus Flores. The Nationals are unbelievably deep behind the plate not only in the majors, where Wilson Ramos is a budding star, but also in the minors where they are stocked with catching talent at nearly every level. The Nat’s have in-house options at the back-stop position for years to come with such prospects as: Slugger and top […]
