According to this press release, via NJ.com, the Camden Riversharks announced today that designated hitter, Valentino Pascucci has signed a contract with the New York Mets organization. He will join New York’s AAA team, the Buffalo Bisons, of the International League. “Valentino was a team leader for us.

Earlier today, Joe D. posted a blog saying that 1B/OF Chris Carter is very close to joining the Mets. In it he wrote, With the Mets’ continuing reluctance to take on additional payroll, they find themselves in the very fortunate (and envious) position of tapping into their minor league system for help that appears to be major league ready and ripe for promotions. The Mets have a lot of good baseball people in their ranks […]
At the end of spring training, Carlos Beltran said he wanted to begin running exercises in Port St. Lucie on April 10, and rejoin the Mets by at least early May, but after three weeks of Beltran’s self-imposed deadline he is still not close to returning. According to the New York Daily News Beltran was fitted for a custom knee brace last week in which he hoped would help accelerate his rehabilitation. That occurred during an April 20 visit to the […]
Jeez, I almost forgot that it was my job to write series previews! Talk about having to get used to that and quick! Luckily for me and my responsibilities here, the Mets were rained out last night after a rain shortened victory against the Atlanta Braves. Man, is there nothing worse than a rain out? The only positive thing was I got to bang through a bunch of TV Shows we have on DVR. Between […]
The Mets to this point in the season, are 1 game over .500. Met nation, no need to adjust your glasses or wipe your screens, the Mets are 1 game over .500. The Mets, haven’t been “firing on all cylinders” as of yet either. What can happen when this team is firing on all cylinders, is what has me excited. Henry Blanco and Rod Barajas have been major upgrades defensively at the catchers position. Both have […]
As the Mets’ bullpen has exceeded expectations in the early part of the season, the need for Jenrry Mejia seems to be diminishing, but Jerry Manuel remains adamant that the 20-year-old will be a bigger part of the pen rather than be pushed out and sent to tune up in the minor leagues for an eventual starting role. According to ProSportsDaily.com Manuel was asked if the emergence of Fernando Nieve in the pen could free up […]
The Mets have placed reliever Ryota Igarashi on the 15-day disabled list and promoted Manny Acosta from Triple-A Buffalo. After his MRI Wednesday morning, the Mets announced that he sustained a moderate injury to his left hamstring in last night’s game. The right-hander strained his left hamstring in the eighth inning of Tuesday night’s 4-0 victory over the Cubs when he squatted to field a bunt. Iggy was just beginning to emerge as a viable setup man in the […]
This morning one of our readers commented about possibly making a trade for Roy Oswalt of the Astros. And although I totally disagreed with having to give up Mike Pelfrey for him, the thought of adding Oswalt seemed quite intriguing. 1. Johan Santana 2. Roy Oswalt 3. Mike Pelfrey 4. Oliver Perez 5. Jon Niese Since then, WFAN has been abuzz with talk of Oswalt, but now I came across this post by Adam Rubin […]
According to Adam Rubin via Twitter, Mike Jacobs has cleared waivers and could report to Buffalo. Jacobs hit .208 with one homer and two RBIs in 24 at-bats before being designated for assignment Sunday. Jacobs has indicated he would be willing to go to Triple-A Buffalo if playing time exists. It’s not surprising that 29 other MLB teams passed on Jacobs. What was surprising, although not really, was that the Mets signed Jacobs in the first […]
