As first reported by Mike Harrington of the Buffalo News, Tim Teufel has officially been named the manger of the Buffalo Bisons. The move was expected, but had not been announced until today. Terry Collins will be on hand as the keynote speaker at a luncheon to precede the press conference. Cold and frigid is the forecast but it’s plenty hot for baseball today for the Bisons as they host their annual Winter Hot Stove […]

About two weeks ago, I emailed some questions to our friends at Mets Prospect Hub. After much deliberation, here are the responses I got back from David and Tejesh, the guys behind their great blog.

Where do you rank the Mets Minor League System on a scale of 1-10 in the following areas: […]
On the last day for teams to add minor leaguers to their 40-man roster and protect them from the Rule 5 draft, the Mets made a few moves.

The deadline for protecting players from the Rule 5 draft is 11:59 PM tonight. In case you were wondering who the Mets cut to create these open spots, […]
Mack from the always informative Macks Mets, was gracious enough to answer a few questions for me last week on the “middle of the pack” Mets minor leagues. 1. Where do you rank the Mets Minor League System on a scale of 1-10 (10 being the best) in the following areas: A) Starting Pitching: 4 – Lots of good talent but mostly SP5 material… Harvey, Mejia, and Urbina are only velocity guys. B) Power Hitters: 5 – It did […]
From the one and only John Sickels of Minor League Ball, his just released Mets Top Prospects list for 2011. 1) Wilmer Flores, SS, Grade B+: He’s coming around with the bat. How fast will the new regime push him, and what position will he play long-term? 2) Jenrry Mejia, RHP, Grade B: I’m concerned enough about his health to lower his grade a notch, but I still like him. Not a technical rookie due to service […]
