Some people live for the big game. Joe Montana saved his best efforts for the many NFC Championship Games and Super Bowls he won. Michael Jordan was excellent at sinking clutch shots and the spirits of opposing teams in his six NBA Finals victories. (I’m a Utah Jazz fan. I should know.) And then there’s one Carlos Ivan Beltran. Carlos Beltran has never been a player who has sought the spotlight. But come October, the […]
Ben Nicholson-Smith of SportsNet Canada is reporting that Blue Jays GM Alex Anthopoulos is willing to trade some of the Blue Jays’ “core” for starting pitching depth including shortstop Jose Reyes. Anthopoulos seems to be, and rightfully so, employing the “no one is untouchable” strategy. “The core that we have in place from a contractual standpoint speaks for itself,” he says. “That’s not to say that we would rule anything out. No one has a […]
Alex Jackson, Rancho Bernardo H.S (CA) Position: C/RF Height: 6’2 Weight: 210 Bats/Throws: R/R Last week we took a look at high school shortstop Jacob Gatewood. We’ll keep it in the high school ranks this week and take a look at a fellow Californian in Alex Jackson– a high-ceiling, potential top five pick that I’ll be hoping the Mets can get their hands on. Jackson is listed at 210, but he’s probably bigger than that– and […]
Yes, I know the answer to the question in my title is most likely not. The Tampa Tribune put up a little piece on David Price yesterday where he stated he is preparing himself to be traded. “If you go with what’s been done in the past I guess you’re going to have to think you’re going to get traded,” Price said Wednesday night on a conference call. “You’ve seen it happen a couple of times […]
It’s obvious that Jose Dariel Abreu, the 26 year old Cuban phenom, is at or near the top of many a team’s wish list this offseason. The frontrunners for the slugger have been reported as the Giants, Red Sox, White Sox, and Rangers. It has also been reported that the Mets have shown somewhat of an interest in Abreu, with his innate ability to hit the ball far impressing them the most. That said, it […]
Now that all the sorting out has been completed, the Mets will officially be selecting in the No. 10 slot for the 2014 First Year Player Draft. The Mets “earn” a protected pick going into the 2013-14 offseason. Here’s the official order for next June’s first round which includes the consolation pick for the Toronto Blue Jays: 1. Astros (2013 record: 51-111) 2. Marlins (62-100) 3. White Sox (63-99) 4. Cubs (66-96) 5. Twins (66-96) 6. Mariners (71-91) 7. Phillies (73-89) 8. Rockies (74-88) 9. Blue Jays (74-88) 10. Mets (74-88) 11. Blue Jays (for failure […]
Last night was just the opening act, tonight the playoffs officially begin! This year’s playoffs (minus not having the Mets) to me look to be very enjoyable on paper. I don’t think there is a team that I legitimately can say I have a strong feeling “should” win it all. Tonight, the Pittsburgh Pirates welcome the Cincinnati Reds to beautiful PNC Park. This is a tough game for me to predict because I do not […]
The 2013 Mets season has now officially been placed ‘in the books’. This year saw the continued decline of once promising young talents such as Ike Davis and Ruben Tejada, allowing for a slew of fresh prospects to enter the mix at the major-league level. Terry Collins best described it in his pre-game press conference in that we “got to see the pieces” that will soon make this team competitive as well as what Collins […]
That’s a Wrap! In a game in which the Mets honored one of the greatest players to ever play in Flushing, the Amazin’s played like a contending baseball team, concluding their 2013 season on a high note, besting the Brewers 3-2. Eric Young Jr. led things off with a soft single to center for the first hit of the game. He then proceeded to swipe second, in doing so also grabbing the NL Stolen Base […]
