Updated Post 6/4 at 9:10 PM: ESPN has included the names of the other 20 players believed to potentially be facing MLB discipline, and Mets top-hitting prospect Cesar Puello as well as Ex-Met Fernando Martinez are among those included. In addition to A-Rod, Braun, Puello and Martinez, Melky Cabrera, Bartolo Colon, Yasmani Grandal, Nelson Cruz, Francisco Cervelli, Jesus Montero, Jhonny Peralta, Everth Cabrera, Fautini de los Santos, Jordan Norberto have all been named by Quinn as […]
Draft day is approaching quick; June 6th to be exact. The most important phase of the June rule IV Player Draft is the first round, which is speculated over and over every year. The first round usually sets the tone for priority of picks by selecting players teams feel have the highest ceiling or amount of polish in the draft. Though baseball sites do not know the inside of any organization they are speculating on, […]
Anthony DiComo of MLB.com gave us a thorough draft preview for the New York Mets as we gear up for the 2013 MLB draft this Thursday. While it’s not always guaranteed an impact-type player will fall to the 11th overall pick (which is where the Mets currently reside), but Paul DePodesta shed some light on the depth of talent in this year’s draft: “There are some guys obviously that we like more than others, but there […]
This rebuilding process seems to be dragging on too long. Do you think the Mets will go with young high school players again in June with their first round pick? I feel as though we desperately need some near MLB ready college bats and can’t afford to use our top pick on another player who is 4-5 years away from helping the major league team. Thoughts? – Justin Great question, Justin. The one thing that […]
Series Preview This year, for the first time ever, the Mets and Yankees will be playing a four-game series with two games in Queens and two in the Bronx. After complaints from fans and new changes to the schedule this year, Bud Selig was forced to shorten these marquee interleague rivalries from six games to four. That’s probably a good thing for the Mets considering how good the Yankees are this year, and how bad […]
In a recent interview with Matthew Cerrone of MetsBlog, ESPN’s Buster Olney talked about the free agent market, specifically how the Mets will have to approach the offseason in order to land some of the best players on the market: For example, take Shin-Soo Choo, who is a free agent this fall. I think the Mets will have to do what the Mariners had had to do, in recent years with position players, and overpay […]
Former Mets shortstop Jose Reyes continues to make a rapid recovery from the severely sprained left ankle he suffered on April 12. Reyes started running for the first time on Friday, and he continues to push the envelope in his recovery process, according to Team officials. “It was a little bit scary for me,” Reyes said of his first time running. “But I am pain free. I’m very happy the way that I performed yesterday; […]
Shohei Otani, a 18-year-old with an upper-90s fastball, made his Nippon Pro Baseball debut this morning for the Hokkaido Nippon-Ham Fighters. And yeah, I was up at 5AM to watch it. Otani has already made plenty of news in Japan. After his impressive high school career Shohei announced that he would skip the Nippon League altogether, therefore bypassing the posting system and sign with a Major League organization. The Red Sox, Rangers, Yankees, Dodgers, and […]
It’s that time of the year again. Seven weeks into the season and we are being asked to vote for the 2013 All-Stars. This week Cincinnati came to town. Now, imagine for a moment, if as you walked into Citi Field you were handed a ballot where you could choose which Reds you would want playing that day. Safe to say, we Mets fans would probably decide that Brandon Phillips, Joey Votto and Jay Bruce […]
