The Arizona Fall League starts it’s 2011 season today, and the Mets have changed their minds on several player assignments to their affiliated team the Peoria Javelinas. They have assigned outfielder Juan Lagares, third-baseman Jefry Marte, and shortstop Wilfredo Tovar, as was previously announced. The Mets have also sent to Arizona, catcher Juan Centeno who spent the 2011 season backing up Francisco Pena at St. Lucie. For the year, the lefty hitting Centeno hit .318, in 157 AB’s […]
Who will be traded? Sandy may not have much money to spend, but he sure needs to fill a lot of holes. The trade market could be a major tool for the Mets heading into the winter. Of course, two unsettling things for Mets fans heading into the off-season, are the present situations at the two defensive positions, shortstop and centerfield. Shortstop will remain up-in-the-air for quite some time. At least until Jose has drank […]
When the Mets announced their 2011 entries in the Arizona Fall League recently, people said, “Who are these guys?” and “Aren’t the Mets supposed to send their best prospects to the AFL?” Well frankly, they did. At least in nearly every case they sent the best prospects that they could. The Mets apparent strategy in selecting this year’s participants, entails sending guys who are on the verge of a breakthrough year. Players who had good […]
In Savannah, the Sand Gnats won the third game of the SAL Championship Series Thursday night by a score of 4-3, to take a 2-1 lead in the best-of-five series. Sand Gnat 1B Joe Bonfe broke a 3-3 tie with two outs in the bottom of the 11th inning when he singled with the bases loaded to drive in CF Darrell Ceciliani with the winning run. The pitching was the real story in the game with both […]
When next year’s Spring Training arrives, there will be some fierce competition for spots in the Mets bullpen. At this point, barring trade or injury, the only logical holdovers would be Bobby Parnell, Pedro Beato and Manny Acosta. Otherwise, it’s pretty wide-open. The recent performances of Josh Stinson and Daniel Herrera are promising, and they should be solidly in-the-mix as well. But where else are The Mets going to find help? The more games Parnell blows, the less […]
Luis Nieves hit a solo HR in the top of the 7th, and Aderlin Rodriguez crushed a two-run job in the 8th, to ice the game en route to a 7-3 Savannah win in Game Two of their championship series with Greensboro. Right-hander Yohan Almonte, pitching in relief of starter Gonzalez Germen, picked up the win with 5 scoreless innings after Germen was ineffective. Almonte gave up 4 hits, 0 runs, struck out 5 and walked 2. […]
Savannah Sand Gnat DH Blake Forsythe homered twice, the second time to break a 3-3 tie in the 8th inning, and LF Alonzo Harris homered and drove in two runs for the Savannah Sand Gnats. But closer LHP Hamilton Bennett, could not protect a 4-3 lead in the bottom of the 9th, blowing the save, and the game. As a result, the Greensboro Grasshoppers beat the Sand Gnats 5-4 in Game One of the South […]
CONGRATULATIONS TO THE 2011 SAL SOUTHERN DIVISION CHAMPION SAVANNAH SAND GNATS!
