Updated 3/17 As I feared, David Wright rejoined the Mets this morning and uttered the words I was hoping I wouldn’t have to hear. Regarding whether he will be ready to play by Opening Day, Wright had this to say: “That’s looking to predict the future, and I can’t do that, and I won’t do that, because it’s the first day I’ve been back in camp.” “So I don’t know how I’m going to feel […]
As the Mets get set to take on the Braves in today’s St. Patty’s Day Sunday matinee at Tradition Field, it will be quite easy to get into the holiday spirit. Luck of the Irish bases at Tradition Field twitter.com/Mets/status/31… — New York Mets (@Mets) March 17, 2013 How cool are these?! The Amazin’s will be running across “Luck Of The Irish” bases today. Normally I would say it’s bad luck to be stepping […]
They wouldn’t be the Mets if things came easily. So, on the day after losing third baseman David Wright indefinitely, they lost his back-up, Justin Turner, to a sprained ankle. Turner was injured in the fourth inning of today’s 4-2 loss to Miami, when after fielding a ground ball, his left leg buckled while making a wild throw and he landed awkwardly on his right ankle. “I think just getting up, going to make a throw, I caught […]
The Mets announced they have assigned infield prospects Wilmer Flores and Josh Satin, and right-handed reliever Carlos Torres to minor league camp. That leaves 42 players remaining in major league camp. Catcher Travis d’Arnaud, who was expected to be among today’s cuts, survives to play another day and remains in major league camp. However, he is still expected to start the season at Triple-A Las Vegas. According to the new CBA rules, any prospect on the 40-man roster who becomes […]
Nearly flawless in his last start, Matt Harvey took his lumps today, but on a positive note rebounded and regained control. Harvey gave up a three-run homer to Washington’s Bryce Harper in the first inning, but rebounded to throw three scoreless innings and strike out six in an 8-5 loss. Harvey settled down to retire 11 of the final 12 hitters against him; a very good sign for any pitcher let alone a young one after a rough start. […]
Here is a list of Top 150 Prospects for 2013 by Minor League Ball’s John Sickels. Sickels explains that the rankings presents a balance between long-term upside and present ability, and that he tends to favor players who are closer to the majors than those who are far away. “My background is sabermetric, but my approach is to blend sabermetrics and traditional scouting,” he writes. “I may lean one way or another on a particular […]
The Mets are holding conclave this spring as they seek out a center field replacement for the departed Andres Torres. Jordany Valdespin is not an easy person to like, and especially hard to cheer for, but he’s become a leading candidate. Ask him a question and he’ll often mumble an indifferent and inaudible answer. He exudes confidence on the field, but crosses the line with a brash attitude, tendency to showboat and not always hustle. Off […]
There is only about 15 minutes remaining to bid on a signed Rusty Staub bobblehead in a charity auction to support the New York Police & Fire Widows’ & Children’s Benefit Fund. 100% of the proceeds from the auction go toward supporting the families of local heroes who were killed in the line of duty. Bid Here Now Rusty signed the bobblehead during his Google Hangout Podcast last week in which he sat down with a panel […]
The Mets had an absolute field-day this afternoon with an 11-0 romp over against the Detroit Tigers in Lakeland, Fla. Jonathon Niese got the start against Detroit and continues to roll, tossing four and two thirds innings of scoreless ball and allowing just one hit while walking four. Niese has yet to allow a run this Spring. It won’t be long until he ‘s officially tapped as the Opening Day starter. I sense a big […]
