Over the past several seasons the Mets have shown the fans how important pitching is to the organization. They have developed and brought up homegrown pitching prospects to debut with the team, with the likes of Jon Niese, Dillon Gee, Matt Harvey, Zack Wheeler, Jenrry Mejia, and Bobby Parnell. Each have shown signs of brilliance, but due to injuries, they have not been able to help the team put together winning seasons. But the Mets […]
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 […]
This latest Fan Shot comes from 12-year old Haley Smilow who has been fortunate enough to have had the opportunity to interview several Major League Baseball Players over the last couple of years. Her family began a quest in 2011 to visit all 30 ballparks and by the end of this summer they will have reached 22. The following is a Q&A that Haley conducted with Mets utility infielder Justin Turner. I’m sure you’ll all agree […]
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 […]
Very rarely is a team graced with a player of the stature and talent of Michael Joseph Piazza. Subsequently, very rarely does a fanbase and a city mutually bond with a player like Michael Joseph Piazza. Today as Piazza was inducted into the Mets Hall of Fame, fans were able to share yet another special moment with the greatest offensive catcher of all time. “I look back now, in retrospect, and realize it was just […]
This was an interesting season for the St. Lucie Mets. In the first half they finished in second place, eight games out of first and missed making the playoffs. In the second half, they fought and nearly pulled off a miracle at the end before running out of time. It was a very good season for a team with some talented hitters. One of those hitters, outfielder Dustin Lawley, put up impressive numbers. He was awarded with […]
As the 2013 season draws to a close for the New York Mets, what can be taken away from their fifth-straight losing season is the emergence of a number of young talents ranging from the pitching mound to the bullpen; from home plate, to centerfield. Met-Legend Edgardo Alfonzo was once an up-and-coming prospect himself, becoming a premiere bat and a defensive wonder during the Amazin’s turn-of-the-century stretch of October runs from 1999-2000. When I asked […]
Tonight Zack Wheeler takes on the team that drafted him for the second time this season. The first time the 23-year old faced the Giants, he was publicized as the “Robin” to the leading Cy-Young candidate and NL All-Star Game Starter Matt Harvey; perhaps unfairly so. Since that initial outing at AT&T against his former franchise; much has changed. Harvey and a pitching rubber between now and 2015 is in question, and Wheeler has taken […]
Longtime Mets reliever Pedro Feliciano has been with the Amazin’s for the majority of his major-league career, only taking a two-year, $8 million hiatus from Flushing courtesy of the New York Yankees. Even so, he’s never thrown a major league pitch for any team other than the Mets. Perpetual Pedro is back in orange and blue once again this season, a theme the 37-year old Puerto Rico-native looks to continue for the remainder of his […]
