Wilfredo Tovar: The Mets Answer at Shortstop?

Coming into this season, there was much doubt surrounding whether a Wilmer Flores and Daniel Murphy shortstop and second base combination could holdup over a full season. And while the Mets eleven game winning streak gave the clumsy duo a bit more leeway, two big losses against the Marlins earlier this week exacerbated the Mets […]

How Good Is Dilson Herrera?

Before Daniel Murphy blasted that epic home run in the Mets 3-1 victory over the Miami Marlins, there were many killing Murphy and some were even calling for him to be replaced by Triple-A second baseman who has been tearing it up in Las Vegas. Herrera, 21, has been a Top 100 prospect in baseball, […]

MMO Exclusive: Jim Callis Talks Mets Prospects With Metsmerized

The Mets patience in their farm is starting to pay significant dividends to their major league ball club, recently in the emergence of Jacob deGrom, Juan Lagares, and Jeurys Familia as star-like talents. Now, it seems like no matter which player makes the trip from the farm, be it deGrom and Dilson Herrera last year, […]

On Wednesday evening, I had the pleasure of sitting down with minor league reporter and analyst Jake Seiner of MilB.com. Seiner covers the entire minor leagues very closely, but  agreed to keep our discussion limited to the Mets and we mainly discussed the teams top prospects as featured on the MMO Top 25 for the […]

Three Trades The Mets Should Consider

With an impressive balance of power arms, consistent bats, and major league ready talent, the Mets have a consensus top-five minor league system. They also, at least in my opinion, have a damn good major league team as well. The big club definitely has some holes, though, notably at shortstop, but otherwise there seems to […]

Prospect Pulse: Don’t Sleep On SS Gavin Cecchini

It’s not often can a first round pick be called underrated. But among fans, prospect-lovers, and high-profile analysts, the verdict seems to be out on shortstop Gavin Cecchini. The 21-year-old was regularly absent from Mets top prospects rankings this offseason, and most people seem unimpressed with his high-floor, low-ceiling combination. However, after examining Gavin’s 2014 […]

Spending Does Not Equate To Success

Cringing because the Mets failed to acquire Ben Zobrist or Ian Desmond? Love to criticize the Wilpons for running a small market team in the big apple? You may disagree with me, but I don’t their either of those opinions are valid, and I’m here to tell you why. I know the Mets’ payroll has […]

Allan Dykstra Could Surprise For Rays This Season

In every organization, there are players that fly under the radar despite consistently producing at a high level in the minor leagues. Once these players reach minor league free agency, they are finally given a chance to replicate their minor league success in bigs. Last year, utility man Yangervis Solarte broke camp as the Yankees […]

MMO Exclusive: Catching Up With Mets Prospect Xorge Carrillo

Amidst the Mets catching talent, prospect Xorge Carrillo has gotten lost in the fold. The 2011 14th round draftee recently enjoyed a career year at Double-A Binghamton, batting .283, posting a .355 on base percentage and catching 29% of would-be base stealers in 2014. I just profiled Carrillo’s 2014 performance and speculated about his major […]

Mets Minors: Top 15 Organizational Prospects

Perhaps 2015 will be the season that the Mets finally return to the playoffs. And if that does happen, you can credit an elite farm system for taking them there and not roster built with free agent dollars. The Mets’ system is still flush with talented arms such as Steven Matz and Noah Syndergaard, however, […]
