Adam Rubin noted in a piece on Friday, that Sandy Alderson wants better arms in the bullpen going into next season. ”We need to have more quality arms in the bullpen,” Sandy explained. “We never had a real strong bottom half of the bullpen. The key will be to have more arms, quality arms out there that we can rely on.” My advice to Alderson this off-season? Ignore the voice in your head that says that […]
Our team at MetsMinors.net and MMO have been very busy over the last few weeks as we prepared to begin rolling out our 2014 Top 40 Prospects for the New York Mets. This past season was one of many surprises that saw fortunes of many Mets prospects rise and fall. It was a great year for the organization as several prospects made their Major League debuts and appear to be here to stay – none […]
The latest news out of Sandy’s camp — He mentioned on WFAN that signing Johan Santana is a possibility. Although this could be nothing more than him covering his bases and making sure that all options get explored, he didn’t flat out deny anything. Santana has made his intentions clear — he plans to pitch again next year and has been working to return from the injury that knocked him out for this year. Signing […]
There was an interesting piece on FanGraphs a couple days ago about Vic Black — titled “Vic Black, Closer In Waiting?” You can already guess what the subject matter dealt with and it was certainly a good read. They jump-started it with a curious quote from LaTroy Hawkins, who spoke about Black: “Some guys have late life on the ball,” the 40-year-old Mets reliever Hawkins said. “Sometimes I play catch with him and he has, like, double life. The ball […]
Congratulations to Eric Young Jr. National League Stolen Base Leader for 2013! Eric Young Jr. might have been a man on a mission when he took the field for the Mets in yesterday’s season finale. He led off the game with a base hit and took off — successfully — for second base on the very next pitch, cementing himself as the NL’s stolen base leader for 2013. A couple pitches later, he stole third […]
The Milwaukee Brewers (72-87) defeated the New York Mets (73-86) by the score of 4-2 tonight at Citi Field. For all the hell I gave you in the beginning of the year, Carlos Torres… I respect the work you’ve put in for this team in 2013. A depth signing turned into a guy who really put in some solid hours for the Mets, finishing the year with a 3.44 ERA in 86.1 innings across a […]
Is it not really known why society loves to classify everything into black and white? Maybe it’s just easier to minimize everything down into it’s most simplistic form. When it comes down to it, the vast majority of major league baseball players have never played in a World Series, let alone win one. Some of the best players in the history of the game never won a World Series, are these all time greats still […]
BYRON BUXTON WOWED THEM ALL IN 2013 Who were the top performers in the prospect world in 2013? Jim Callis and Jonathan Mayo picked their “All-Prospect Teams” — one player for each position — as well as the top overall position player and pitcher. As an added bonus this year, they also chose prospects they think made the biggest jumps on the prospect landscape, those whose stock fell the most, and those who have the […]
Carlos Torres turned in yet another strong start for the Mets today, going six innings and allowing just two runs, en route to a 4-3 victory over the Phillies. Hell, it’s always a good feeling when we sweep the Phillies. Dominic Brown had a hand in both Philadelphia runs off Torres, scoring the first one on a Kevin Frandsen double and driving in the second one with an RBI single in the bottom of the […]
