When the 48th pick came up yesterday, many people were clamoring for the Mets to take Austin Wilson. Not many people believed that Wilson, a right-handed hitting outfielder from Stanford would drop to the 48th overall pick in the draft. The Mets instead took Andrew Church, a projectable right-handed pitcher out of Basic High School in Nevada. The Mariners took Wilson with the next pick. I sorted through tweets and comments, as people were pouring […]
The 2013 MLB Draft is tomorrow and the top Mets pick speculation is heating up. I recently allotted the mock drafts, compiling the lists where the likely Mets picks would be. Mock Drafts have had players fall and rise since then. Players such as Braden Shipley and Colin Moran rise to consensus top-10 picks, while Meadows has fallen in recent drafts. Therefore, Satish and I speculated these five players are most likely to be drafted […]
Draft day is approaching quick; June 6th to be exact. The most important phase of the June rule IV Player Draft is the first round, which is speculated over and over every year. The first round usually sets the tone for priority of picks by selecting players teams feel have the highest ceiling or amount of polish in the draft. Though baseball sites do not know the inside of any organization they are speculating on, […]
This rebuilding process seems to be dragging on too long. Do you think the Mets will go with young high school players again in June with their first round pick? I feel as though we desperately need some near MLB ready college bats and can’t afford to use our top pick on another player who is 4-5 years away from helping the major league team. Thoughts? – Justin Great question, Justin. The one thing that […]
The 2013 Dominican Summer League is starting on June 1st and the Mets have two teams there, as well as players that they have signed or might sign working out there. The reason that the Mets have two teams in the Dominican Summer League is that the second team is a replacement for their once Venezuelan League team. It was disbanded in favor of the second DSL team as tensions and violence grew in Venezuela. In […]
The Mets have some power within their farm system. Their top sluggers include Aderlin Rodriguez, Cory Vaughn, and Travis Taijeron. The Mets have tried to remedy this issue by drafting powerful High School catcher Tomas Nido, top outfielder Brandon Nimmo, as well as trading for Travis d’Arnaud, another catcher with power, and signing Ahmed German Rosario, a shortstop who could produce a lot of power as well. But, when it comes to power bats closer […]
As the draft approaches, our organizational needs become very clear. The Mets are surely stocked when it comes to Right-Handed Pitchers, as also evident by every other minor league system boasting at least one pitcher with great upside from the right side. Although the Mets are stocked when it comes to right-handed pitching, they are very thin in left-handed pitching, with the exception of relievers. They only have one starter in the upper minors that has a […]
June is approaching mighty fast, and with it is the wonder, buzz, and speculation of players that could be selected in the first round of the 2013 First Year Player Draft. This year, we have figured to have a large organizational need, and that is in the outfield. The Mets are stocked high and mighty on pitchers, have drafted and signed their share of hitters up the middle (catchers and middle infielders), and have a […]
Savannah, which starts playing on Thursday, has been speculated over and over to continuously have some top talent this season, and the people who speculated these were mostly right. There are a lot of prospects to be watching on this roster, both on the hitters and pitches side. I will list them as a convenience, as well as two potential sleepers for both hitting and pitching. Starting Pitchers Matthew Bowman Gabriel Ynoa Steven Matz Rainy […]
