Hit The Ground Running: A Page From The Detroit Tigers

Jonathan Bernhardt, perhaps a distant relative many times removed, did a piece called “Time To Shine” for “Sports on Earth.” In the column, Bernhardt highlights prospects he predicts may be on a fast track to reach the bright lights and fame of major league baseball. It wasn’t the prospects themselves but what Bernhardt had to […]

He played his college ball at Wake Forest University, and the Demon Deacon was considered one of the top power threats in college baseball at the time.

Flashback: Prospect Pulse On Outfielder Juan Lagares

I thought it would be cool to look back at one of my very first Prospect Pulse pieces that I did here on MMO from about a year ago. It was on the Mets’ current centerfielder Juan Lagares. I remember when I first wrote this, I didn’t think Lagares had a shot at getting to the big leagues until […]

Could Brandon Allen Be A Dark Horse At First Base For The Mets?

“Who’s on first?” Those words have become more than just an Abbott & Costello skit for New York Mets fans this winter. Those words have been somewhat of a rallying cry. Trade Ike Davis…No, keep him…Lucas Duda gives us the best offensive production from first base…I like the idea of a Josh Satin platoon with […]

A Closer Look at Mets’ LHP Prospect Steven Matz

You’ve heard the name before, but 2013 was the first real look at the Mets’ LHP prospect Steven Matz due to him missing significant time recovering from arm injuries. I recently named him as my Mets’ pitching prospect to watch in 2014, as he seems to be on a path to be named a top-five […]

Prospect Spotlight: Kevin Plawecki Has Everyone’s Attention Now

Last week, FanGraphs had a small blurb about Mets catching prospect Kevin Plawecki in a post about underrated minor leaguers. “Mets’ 2012 supplemental first rounder Kevin Plawecki has shown that his tremendous hand-eye coordination carried from Purdue to the pro ranks. He only hit eight balls over the fence this year, but eventually some of his doubles—he […]

Rising Through The Ranks: Dustin Lawley and T.J. Rivera

There are two Mets prospects that I will be keeping a very close eye on in 2014, and I would suggest other Mets fans do the same. It’s not Noah Syndergaard…it’s not Rafael Montero…nope, it’s not even Travis d’Arnaud. The two Mets prospects everyone should be keeping an eye on in 2014 are T.J. Rivera […]

Featured Post: Mets Prospects Who Have Something to Prove

Since Sandy Alderson took over in 2010, his main focus has been rebuilding a depleted farm system.  He has done a pretty good job of it by drafting very young players with impressive, raw tools that need polish in Gavin Cecchini, Brandon Nimmo, and Dominic Smith, and adding some more promising names via trade in Zack […]
