The Mets signed Darrell Ceciliani in the 4th round of the 2009 MLB June Amateur Draft from Columbia Basin College in Pasco, WA. In his freshman year in college, prior to the draft, he hit .374 and helped lead the team to 44 wins and an appearance in the 2009 NWAAC Championship series. He was sent to Kingsport and in 42 games, he batted .234/.313/.310 with 29 runs, six doubles, and two home runs in 158 at bats. […]
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 also describes as “fun” come 2014. Headlining that crop was Wilmer Flores, who since 2007 at the tender […]
When I was a child, my mother and father always asked me what did I want to be when I grew up; I think they knew the answer before I even said it because I didn’t go anywhere without my baseball glove. I wanted to be a Major League baseball player; I wanted to be a NY Met. It was all I could dream about. I wanted to dress up in the uniform and run around […]
Could Michael Cuddyer join his best friend David Wright in Flushing? As we continue our quest for a winning team, we look at acquiring an outfielder. To begin with, it sounds easier than it really is. In July, teams traded their players – Alex Rios, Michael Morse, Justin Maxwell – because their chances of competing were slim. So, you trade today for a shot at tomorrow, theoretically. However, trading a star player is not easy. […]
When signing a young player from an international market, you never really know what you will get. They haven’t gotten a lot of fanfare like most of the players that come straight from the draft out of college and high school. Most fans do not hear much about international ballplayers until years later if they are lucky to establish themselves as legit prospects as they advance through the minor league system. So understanding the journey […]
If you’re a true baseball fan, you’ve got to admit it; you’re going to miss Jim Leyland. He’s one of those guys you either love or hate – or maybe love to hate. But deep down inside, we all love the man because we love the sport and he’s been a part of the very fabric of baseball. It’s a little like one of your favorite stars leaving your favorite soap opera; it will never […]
A few minutes ago, I was scrolling through MLB Trade Rumors when I noticed some Yankees’ notes. Turns out the Yanks, long believed to be trying to climb under the luxury-tax threshold, are going to spend this winter. (I know – pick up your jaw) The clip listed their preferred targets as Masahiro Tanaka, Brian McCann and Carlos Beltran. I read the names and had to laugh. The dichotomy between these two clubs in New […]
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 […]
