Another day, another bunch of grades. Today we’re going to be grading the two Mets superstars: Jose Reyes and David Wright. I’m still going to grade them by position, even though Reyes and Wright spent 99% of the time at those position. Here we go! Shortstop (Jose Reyes) Ryan P. Well, from the beginning of the season to mid-August, Jose was lights out. He was batting around .300 with an OBP of .377. […]
Today starts the first part of the Mets report cards. Six staff members for Mets Merized, including myself, each compiled a grade for each position and it’s respective player(s). Without futher ado, I present to you the Met Merized 2007 Report Cards. The first part will feature First Base and Second Base. First Base (Carlos Delgado and Jeff Conine) Ryan P. – 2007 wasn’t the brightest spot for the Mets. The players just […]
Yes folks, this is the last edition of the Minor League Report. I’ll just go through a quick recap of the teams that made the playoffs, and their results, and the records and such for the other teams. AAA – New Orleans Zephyrs The Zephyrs finished the regular season winning the PCL American South division with a 75-69 record. They faced the Nashville Sounds in the first round of the playoffs and defeated them winning […]
This will be my last blog for August, both ‘Orange Seats and the Minor League Report. I’m taking a two-week vacation with my family. So, yeah. I’ll be back the 26th. On with the blog! Sitting in front of a computer while watching some SNY made me think, what does the future hold for us? Well, I know we have the best left-infield in the NL East, if not the MLB, but what about the […]
According to FOXSports, Mets acquired second baseman Luis Castillo from the Twins for Class AA catcher Drew Butera and Class A outfielder Dustin Martin. Castillo will replace Jose Valentin as the starting second basemen. With the Twins, Luis Castillo is batting .304 with 18 RBIs and a .356 on-base percentage. In my opinion, a great trade for the Mets. They didn’t give up any important players and we got a good second baseman.
You are probably saying, why Manny? Well, it’s just Manny being Manny. Last year when Manny Acta was the third base coach, he was aggressive, and he knew what he was doing. I’m not saying that Sandy Sr. isn’t doing his job correctly, it’s just he’s not as enthusiastic as Acta. Manny fires up the team with his energy. I haven’t heard anything about any coach trying to fire this team up. Better yet, I […]
It’s been the same news for the American League for the past couple years. Pitch well, hit hard, win. That formula works for them every year they win, and it seems like they win every time they play. The All-Star Game isn’t just any interleague game; it’s like round one of the World Series, even though it’s not. The tagline for this year’s All-Star Game is, "..this game counts." In my opinion, it really does. […]
July seemed so promising for the Mets with a much anticipated winning streak, team spirit on the rise and players performing again. However, it might have just gone from easy cruising to hectic labor. From the injury-prone Moises Alou, to the latest DL stint of Oliver Perez, the Mets have some issues. Now, with four major players (Chavez, Alou, Sosa, and Perez) on the disabled list, someone needs to step up. Within the last four or five days, […]
