The buzz all week in New Britain was all about one player, and it wasn’t top Twins prospect Oswaldo Arcia that everyone was talking about. When I initially arrived at the Stadium on Monday, I went first to the press-box to drop off my lap-top, and other assorted in-game items I require. I was about to drop my gear and race down to the dugout to see if there was any life down there yet, […]
With the deadline for signing this year’s draft picks drawing steadily closer, the question is do the Mets have any money left to sign a few more of their draft picks from the 2012 MLB Draft? And even if they do have some money, which one’s are the players they should target? With their first round sandwich pick that they used to select catcher Kevin Plawecki, and their extra second-round pick, the Mets had 42 […]
Reports are circulating that the Mets are trying to trade for Rockies veteran catcher Ramon Hernandez when he comes of the D.L. soon. He is currently on a rehab assignment coming back from a hand injury. Hernandez is expendable because Wilin Rosario has taken over as the Rockies everyday catcher. Hernandez, 36, is hitting .215 with four homers and 15 RBIs in 93 at-bats. Hernandez has $3.2 million salaries this year and in 2013. Sources are […]
One day not too long ago, I was thinking back to a footnote on a transactions page from early May that I saw and it was still troubling me. I don’t like unsolved mysteries, and I couldn’t understand why a guy who went 3-1 with a 0.90 ERA, two saves, and a 32/5 K/BB ratio in his professional debut, would retire six games into his second pro season? So I asked him. Tyson Seng was […]
I woke up this morning and realized I hadn’t perused the minor league transactions in a couple of days, and that’s just not like me. Usually the minor league transaction sheet is a snooze. Rarely is there a move of significance, just guys bouncing around a level here and a level there, or somebody going on the D.L. But I noticed some interesting names being activated in the last couple of days. Who am I […]
I asked Brandon Nimmo if he had a few minutes to spare at some point before the game against the Hudson Valley Renegades on Sunday. He said, “when?” I said, “you tell me, anytime your available.” He turned around and caught the eye of his hitting coach Bobby Malek who simply nodded, and Nimmo turned back to me and said, “I have time now.” Here’s the rest of what transpired: Petey: I’m talking to Brandon […]
The Brooklyn Cyclones do warm-ups on an already hot day in the H.V. (click any photo to embiggen) Just got back to The Dutch, otherwise known as Dutchess Stadium in scenic Wappingers Falls, New York. I’m gearing myself up for tonight’s grudgematch between the 1st place Brooklyn Cyclones and the 1st place Hudson Valley Renegades. That’s no misprint, both teams are tied atop the McNamara Division of the New York Penn League with identical 9-4 […]
On Tuesday I spent the day and night meeting up with the Brooklyn Cyclones who were in Hudson Valley to play the Renegades. I came, I saw, I left. I even beat the crowd out of the stadium parking lot without running anyone down as they scurried for their cars. The game may have left the home crowd thrilled and elated, but it left me feeling disappointed and deflated. The Clones were unable to hold […]
With the mid-season mark for the minor league long-season leagues fast approaching, I wanted to release a Who’s Hot update to cap off the season’s first half. These statistics do not include Wednesday’s games, but are accurate through Tuesday June 19th. Two out of three players here are pitchers, which makes sense considering pitching is presently the biggest strength in the farm system. About half of these players have been listed on the hot-list before […]
