A couple of weeks ago I had a chance to send out a few general questions to our old pal Tejesh of Mets Prospect Hub. Tej was kind enough to take some time to share his thoughts about the Mets with regard to the First Year Player Draft and some other minor league things I threw at him. Duck! 1. Let’s begin with the just completed draft. You have Courtney Hawkins, Lucas Giolito and Gavin […]
In the 2011 MLB Draft, the Mets used their sixth round selection on a high school outfielder from Pennsylvania named Joe Tuschak. Tuschak is a speedy left-handed hitter with some pop, and a talented defender. With the Rookie League season starting up today, I wanted to get this interview posted since I actually spoke to Joe two weeks ago, but was too busy to finish up the transcription. At the time we spoke Joe was […]
I caught up with St. Lucie Mets infielder Danny Muno during St. Lucie’s off-day on Sunday. The St. Lucie Mets lead the Florida State League’s Southern Division by 9.0 games right now with a 28-8 record. We only had a few minutes for a quick couple of questions, but I thought you might find it interesting none-the-less. Here’s what we had time for: Petey: Hey Danny, what are some of the toughest things about playing […]
The phone rang, and it was Mets RHP Matt Budgell who was relaxing with some of the other players in their hotel room at Port St. Lucie after completing their Tuesday workouts at extended spring training. Matt was the Mets 10th round pick in last years MLB draft, and was nice enough to spend a little time answering questions for all of us here at MMO. We spoke for about twenty minutes as Matt told me how […]
With Josh Thole going on the new 7-day DL with a concussion, Mike Nickeas will get a chance to show what he’s got as an everyday backstop over the next week. This is a wide open opportunity for Nickeas, who has never been known for much more than an above-average arm and a good clubhouse guy. After being drafted by the Rangers in the fifth round of the 2004 draft, Nickeas worked his way up to Double-A […]
(click any photo to embiggen) Last week I published the first half of the MMO Exclusive interview I conducted with Buffalo Bisons manager Wally Backman. Wally was kind enough to sit down and answer some questions about his current team. He was very candid about which of his AAA players he feels, are working themselves into consideration for big league time with the Mets this season. At times while talking to Wally about managing his […]
I had the pleasure of speaking by phone yesterday with New York Mets, 2011 7th round draft choice, minor league first-baseman Cole Frenzel. I was able to throw a great many questions Cole’s way, and he fielded them all sure-handedly, without so much as a bobble. Cole told me he had left the chilly clime of his native North Dakota, and headed for the sunshine of Arizona, in order to get a little warm weather hitting […]
The Ultimate Baseball Road Trip A Fan’s Guide to Major League Stadiums (2nd Ed.) I received an email about a week ago from Josh Pahigian, co-author of The Ultimate Baseball Road Trip: A Fan’s Guide to Major League Stadiums. He wrote to tell me that his great selling book has been updated to include Citi Field and will be released later this month on March 27th. In it he lists Mets Merized Online as one of the […]
Here’s an interview I did with Mets pitching prospect Darin Gorski this offseason. We’ll be re-posting some of the 30 interviews I conducted this Winter as baseball gets back into full swing and many of our readers return from their offseason hibernation. Enjoy! * * * * * * * * * * And the 2011 Sterling Award Winner: Mets Organizational Pitcher of the Year, is…. Darin Gorski. And he was the perfect choice because he […]
