Update: This game has been cancelled due to inclement weather. Rescheduling information to follow on MMO. Original post: Mets righty Chris Young will make his second rehab start of 2012 tonight for St. Lucie in Florida State League action. Young takes the hill against the Bradenton Marauders, and second overall pick in the 2010 draft Jameson Taillon, first pitch is at 6:30 pm. In his first start on May 10th, Young went five innings against Brevard […]
Mets right-hander Jenrry Mejia (1-0 2.45) stepped in to make a rehab start Monday night in St. Lucie’s game against the Bradenton Marauders. It was Mejia’s second rehab start in his attempt to come back from last year’s Tommy John Surgery. In his first game on May 9th against Brevard County, Mejia went five innings giving up two earned runs on four hits and two walks, with one strikeout. In his start tonight Mejia went the […]
I caught up with St. Lucie Mets infielder Danny Muno during St. Lucie’s off-day on Sunday. The St. Lucie Mets lead the Florida State League’s Southern Division by 9.0 games right now with a 28-8 record. We only had a few minutes for a quick couple of questions, but I thought you might find it interesting none-the-less. Here’s what we had time for: Petey: Hey Danny, what are some of the toughest things about playing […]
Buffalo Bisons infielder Bobby Scales has been placed on the temporary inactive list. The move was made as a result of reporters finding out that he was planning on signing with a team in the Japanese Baseball League. A check of the Bison’s roster on the team’s official website reveals that Scales name has been removed from the team’s roster. Scales, a second baseman, is presently leading the Herd with a .339 batting average. His […]
The phone rang, and it was Mets RHP Matt Budgell who was relaxing with some of the other players in their hotel room at Port St. Lucie after completing their Tuesday workouts at extended spring training. Matt was the Mets 10th round pick in last years MLB draft, and was nice enough to spend a little time answering questions for all of us here at MMO. We spoke for about twenty minutes as Matt told me how […]
What am I doing here, on a grimy pier in lower Manhattan at 5 am? That’s a very good question. Just because I get a cryptic message from someone claiming to be JetsMets13, who says he has proof that a renegade Mets blog is conspiring to sell Mets secrets on the black market. The guy says this “rogue Mets blogger is huge”, and that everybody knows him, and that it could be me who would […]
Need to know? Ask Petey Another good question was just slid under my door, but when I checked, there was no one out in the hall except the neighbor’s cat. Could this have been sent by the Secret Service?….nah! It’s just a note in a badly soiled envelope with a barely legible name scribbled across it: Fonzie13. Hmmmmm sounds like a phony name if ever I heard one. But even if it is a fake moniker, […]
One thing you will surely notice when reading this is that a few of these guys do not fit the standard definition of “prospect.” There are a handful of veteran players here who are having too good of a season to ignore. So I have stretched the classic definition of prospect to include minor league veterans who are candidates to get a big league call-up. Therefore some of the guys at the AAA level making […]
As part of today’s MMO Mailbag, we reached out to Steve Matz and Logan Verrett who are both rehabbing in St. Lucie to answer a couple of questions. Ben M: On January 18, 2012, MMO did an interview with Steven Matz, who at the time was optimistic about his recovery and return to baseball. I did a search on the Mets official website and cannot find him. Do you have an update on Steve? Thank […]
