One of the more interesting questions that were emailed to me was from Brian, one of my friends on Mets Merized at Myspace. He asked about Lastings Milledge in comparison to Carlos Gomez and Fernando Martinez, and that maybe we should trade Milledge rather than the other two, his question was in response to an earlier blog I had posted. The reason I think the Mets will keep Lastings Milledge is that all things [...]
I asked Kyle DeBussey from Mets Prospects a few questions last week about some of the Mets prospects. Here is what he had to say… Q – When all is said and done, which pitcher will have had the better career, Mike Pelfrey or Philip Humber? Why? A – Mike Pelfrey will have a better career simply because Phillip Humber is so injury prone. In Humber’s short career he has already needed Tommy John Surgery. I [...]
Earlier this week, Gary Dunes took some time to answer a few questions for Mets Merized Online. Gary Dunes is the very popular morning drive time radio personality on WSEN 92.1FM in Syracuse, NY. He is also the lead singer of the band Dunes & The Del-Tunes. During the baseball season, he is the onfield host for the Syracuse Chiefs, the AAA affiliate of the Toronto Blue Jays. His allegiance however lies with the [...]
I have to tip my cap to Billy Wagner, Tom Glavine, Jose Valentin and Julio Franco, who all supported Willie Randolph and his decision to suspend and fine Duaner for his lateness and poor work ethic. Each of them were very vocal about the importance of being focused this season and keeping your eyes on the prize. The great thing about this Mets team is that they have a clubhouse full of determined leaders and [...]
This is the first installment of our Mets Minor League Roundtable. This week we asked Ed Tsunoda of NYFS (NY Future Stars) eight questions about some of the top prospects in the Mets minor leagues, and which ones we can expect to see at Shea in the very near future. NYFS is one of my favorite New York Mets websites and you can visit them at http://www.nyfuturestars.com. They feature great articles on all the rising stars in the [...]
Mets manager Willie Randolph announced yesterday that injured reliever Duaner Sanchez had been sent home for the day for repeated lateness. "He had been a little tardy for a couple of days," Randolph said. "We have a rule of being on time, so I sent him home to where he lives ." Randolph said he expects Sanchez back today. Sanchez has not yet thrown off a mound in spring training as he recovers from shoulder [...]
Tom Glavine continues to impress this spring as he pitched another 3 scoreless innings yesterday during the Mets 7-2 win over the Astros. He now has 5 scoreless innings in the early goings of the exhibition season and has only given up 4 hits. He certainly looks like he is ready to capture that 300th win and begin his trek into the Hall of Fame once the season ends. Along the way, I hope he can show off a 2007 [...]
On Monday, March 5th, Adam Rubin of the Daily News was kind enough to give us some of his time to answer a few questions for Mets Merized Online. Adam Rubin has been the Daily News’ Mets beat writer since 2003. He is a Long Island native and author of “Pedro, Carlos and Omar: The Story of a Season in the Big Apple and the Pursuit of Baseball’s Top Latino Stars.” (A link for the book is on this page.) Currently Adam is [...]
Looks like I’m not the only one who thinks Jose Reyes has MVP potential. Check out this great article by Adam Rubin of the Daily News. In the article he quotes Carlos Delgado, Carlos Beltran, and David Wright, who all acknowledge what Jose Reyes means to the team. David Wright: "You look at Jose and he sets the tone. That’s not knocking any of the other guys, because you can make strong cases for those guys as [...]
Steve Phillips is at it again, and on Thursday afternoon on the "Mike and the Mad Dog" radio program on WFAN in New York, Steve Phillips predicted that the Mets would finish third in their division, that their starting pitching wouldn’t hold up at all and the Phillies and Braves would finish ahead of them. He has been taking jabs at the Mets ever since he was sent packing by the Mets. He never [...]
What an excellent column Ken Rosenthal wrote today for Fox Sports. After reading his story I feel so much better about the future of the Mets outfield beyond 2007. Maybe Omar knew exactly what he was doing when he signed Moises Alou to that one-year deal, and why he hung on to Shawn Green, whose contract expires at the end of this season. It looks like the Mets have some huge prospects on their way [...]
