As the Mets scramble to trim their 40-man roster to make room for players who finished the year on the disabled list or for prospects who could be lost to the Rule 5 draft, I keep contemplating the fate of Darin Gorski. Gorski, a Met left-handed pitcher in Binghamton went unprotected early in the spring and passed unclaimed through waivers. Gorski returned to the Mets minor leagues assigned to their Triple-A squad in Las Vegas. After recovering from an […]

We hope to provide fans with some insight as to what the Mets currently have at the major-league level on a position by position basis.

Kevin Kernan put together an interesting piece earlier in the week in the New York Post on Dodger baseball phenom Yasiel Puig. In his first sentence, he speculates that Puig is ready for October baseball, but wonders whether baseball is ready for Puig. He builds his piece around what he calls the ‘Puig Philosophy,’ an aggressive, hustling brand of baseball that has endured Los Angeles Dodger fans to the young star. My oldest son, a true blue Met […]
If there is one thing the Mets have going for them it is the very exciting crop of young pitchers in their farm system. It seems that the strategy going forward is to stockpile as many promising young pitchers as they possibly can. The question is whether or not this is a smart move and there are a number of reasons why one would question whether this is a smart move. Nothing excites Mets fans […]
While the shortstop position at the big league level is a topic of discussion and uncertainty for 2014, the Mets have some young options in the lower level of the minors that might make for a bright future. One is former first rounder, Gavin Cecchini, who recently completed his 2013 season with the Brooklyn Cyclones. The other his Amed Rosario, who Baseball America named the top prospect in the Appalachian League this year. So, who […]
Updated Post 10/16 MetsBlog drew an interesting conclusion regarding Rafael Montero after speaking to several Mets insiders: The jury is still out on Montero’s place on a 25-man roster, which is probably why he is more expendable, but also less valuable. First, let me make clear that Rafael Montero has yet to be added to the 40-man roster which renders any discussion about his place on a 25-man roster rather moot. Secondly, the Mets already […]
A good friend of mine recently sent her only child, a son, off to college. I remember those times as heart wrenching moments when each of my three children left the nest. To occupy my mind, I would usually wrap myself around some kind of project. That may have been my friend’s strategy, too. Knowing I host a weekly radio show, she appeared with a stack of sports books that she and her son had read over the years. […]
As the Cardinals, Dodgers, Red Sox, and Tigers dig deep into their respective match-ups to see who will represent each league in the 2013 World Series, the Mets are continuing to figure out their 2014 strategy. You’ll be able to see from some of our original content below that a couple of our writers feel the best ways for New York to get back to playing competitive baseball is by creating even more depth in […]
When looking back on the 2013 season in which the St. Lucie Mets were able to enjoy, its no wonder why they remained in contention most of the second half. The team was made up of real good ball players, and if not for some injuries to key pitchers down the stretch, they may have stormed into the playoffs and taken it all. I had the privilege of interviewing a few of their players like […]
