D. Stossel (LA Met Fan) asks… Can you tell me what the situation is with Phillip Evans? Is he going to stick at shortstop? What would be a typical offensive season if he were to make it to the majors and what would be a great season for him? Sean replies… Phillip Evans is so far away that I could project him as the next great shortstop and not be wrong. Evans has 328 AB’s in […]
JetsMets13 asks… Is Jordany Valdespin an everyday player for us next season and is he finished as a second baseman? Sean replies… No – and it will all be tied to his lack of plate discipline. Valdespin provided plenty of late-inning heroics as well as pinch-hitting power, but struck out in nearly 25% of his AB’s and only walked in 4.9% of his AB’s. Valdespin is easily fooled with breaking pitches, and swings for the fences every […]
Nikki asks… I have a question that hopefully you guys can answer. Has there been any consideration to playing Wilmer Flores in the outfield? He seems to be the only righthanded hitter in the upper minors that seems to have any upside, and the Mets also seem to be in much better shape in the infield than they are in the outfield in both the majors and minors. I haven’t heard any talk about him playing the outfield, but […]

Baseball America named Gavin Cecchini, the Mets’ top pick, the 12th overall pick this year, the number 12th ranked prospect in the Appalachian League for 2012. Matt Eddy wrote the following about the Mets shortstop prospect: He possesses the footwork, hands and range to be an average shortstop, but he’ll need to further develop his average though accurate arm to seal the deal. He has average speed and is a plus baserunner. Cecchini probably won’t […]
Toby Hyde of Mets Minor League Blog had this update on Mets pitching prospect Steven Matz who ended the season with shoulder soreness: Matz is not on the official instructs roster. However, he is in St. Lucie and on a throwing program. The lefty was shut down at the end of July with discomfort in his shoulder area, but the Mets’ doctors did not believe his injury was “severe.” Matz lit up Appalachian League radar guns with […]
I wanted to update this as the 2012 season winds down. I’ll post a final version at season’s end, but for now, if the season ended today, this is what the first round of the 2013 First Year Player Draft would look like. Houston Astros Chicago Cubs Colorado Rockies Cleveland Indians Minnesota Twins Miami Marlins New York Mets The Mets and Marlins still have six remaining contests among their 12 final games to this season […]
Yesterday, Andy McCullough of the Star Ledger. reported that Mark Brewer, the pitching coach for Triple-A Buffalo, has been dismissed from the organization. McCullough’s sources told him that a recent internal review of the Mets minor-league system revealed “a disconnect between the practices of the Triple-A pitching staff and the organization’s prescribed pitching program”. General manager Sandy Alderson confirmed Brewer’s dismissal to The Star-Ledger, but declined to discuss the situation further. “He was a valued member of the organization […]

Blue Jays general manager Alex Anthopoulos confirmed to Toronto reporters this morning that the team is […]
