To close out the 2013 Citi Field Kids season, the Mets hosted a motivational and educational program prior to yesterday’s 11-3 blowout out of the Philadelphia Phillies at Citi Field. LaTroy Hawkins and Robert Carson among many other speakers were on hand to share words of wisdom with over 200 YMCA of Greater New York teens that participate in various YMCA programs throughout the year. The event began with a short video documenting the nine values […]
With the St. Lucie Mets coming back in town this past weekend, to face the Fort Myers Miracle, I set out a few weeks ago to try and land an interview with one of their players. My first thought was since I picked second baseman T.J. Rivera as my first MMN Player of the Week honoree, it would be really cool to chat with him about the great season he has been having in High-A. I reached out to […]
Matt Harvey is going to miss a significant amount of time; not much else is known at this moment. What has been well-documented however, is just how much of an impact the Dark Knight of Gotham has had on the New York Mets organization and their fans alike. The mood surrounding this franchise has plunged further and further into disappointment, animosity and frustration ever since Adam Wainwright‘s infamous breaking ball struck the black leather of […]
New York Mets right-handed pitching prospect Chasen Bradford was kind enough to grant me an interview which I’m pleased to share with MMO. Chasen was drafted by the Mets in the 35th round of the 2011 MLB Draft and he always stood out to me as someone who did not get the attention he deserved. Chasen has performed exceptionally well at every minor league level and has a career 2.80 ERA in 105 minor league appearances. This […]
While we have spent much time debating over whether to trade for Elvis Andrus or Jurickson Profar, the word out of Arlington is that neither Profar or Andrus will be dangled this offseason. Rather, Ian Kinsler is the player the Rangers would prefer to trade. Profar is 21; Andrus is 24; Kinsler is 31. Therefore, Kinsler’s future is a lot shorter than the other two. Now, while Andrus or Profar can be traded, the Rangers […]
I want to thank Liz Peterson from Nautilus, who was kind enough to allow us to share an interview one of her writers, Kevin Berger, conducted with the Mets Vice President of Player Development Paul DePodesta. In the interview, DePodesta discusses his early years with the Cleveland Indians and Oakland A’s as well as the book Moneyball. He dispels some of the myths regarding those Moneyball years and talks in depth about statistical analysis, how […]
A Mets team source told Andy Martino of the Daily News, that provided the Mets don’t collapse down the stretch of the season, there’s a good possibility Terry Collins could be retained beyond 2013, “We can’t have a collapse, and Terry knows that. Otherwise, at the end of season, something good might happen,” the source told Martino. With that bit of news this morning as my intro, here is my Fan Shot on the matter […]
Six seasons of work in the making, the New York Mets finally bore witness to the fruits of their labor with the major-league debut of longtime-top prospect Wilmer Flores. Despite the o-fer in last night’s thrilling 3-2 victory in the series opener against the Colorado Rockies, Flores’ first game marks yet another infusion of quality young talent into the mix at the major league level. The young infielder has been molded by the Mets organization […]
Justin Turner, Josh Satin and Mr. Met took the field in the Bushwick section of Brooklyn yesterday afternoon along with 50 campers from the YMCA Jr. Mets Camp presented by Citi, and it was difficult to tell who was having more fun; the kids, or the Mets. The clinic took place at Green Central Knoll Park, marking the third event in this year’s series of programs with the Jr. Mets Camp, in which over 1,000 […]
