With all the injuries in big league camp this spring, it would have been really nice if some of the young kids could have stepped in and helped out. It would have been a help to the big league team, a valuable experience for the kids, a learning experience, and who knows? One of them might have won a big league job. Injuries to Captain Kirk have robbed him of any chance this year, to […]
Figured I might as well take an early look at the prospects we didn’t sign from the 2011 draft. It won’t change much, but it is one of those things I always like monitoring. Plus who knows, maybe we will take these kids again in 2014. 12th Round (372nd overall) Kenny Mathews, LHP – Cal State Fullerton Mathews has made four appearances (three starts) Titans with an impressive 1-0 record and a 2.77 ERA. In […]

I had the pleasure of speaking by phone yesterday with New York Mets, 2011 7th round draft choice, minor league first-baseman Cole Frenzel. I was able to throw a great many questions Cole’s way, and he fielded them all sure-handedly, without so much as a bobble. Cole told me he had left the chilly clime of his native North Dakota, and headed for the sunshine of Arizona, in order to get a little warm weather hitting […]
Joel Sherman of the Post wrote that there is a “universal belief within the hierarchy” that Jenrry Mejia and Jeurys Familia are going to end up as late-game relievers. Additionally, the Mets have told both Familia and Matt Harvey that they are going to the minors to begin the season. Both of them seemed to suffer from a case of the jitters during their first starts of the spring. I think both of them were […]

I said I wanted to get this posted early in the week and thankfully I was able to accomplish that task this week.

I meant for this to go up on Monday until I realized this was the week every professor decides to throw a test at you. If you guys like the idea I’ll try to have the next one up on Monday. I plan to rotate the second tier guys mentioned each week, so next week I’ll include someone like Kyle Hansen from St. Johns while making other adjustments to improve the quality and content. Mark […]
