Mike Puma of the New York Post, reports that Terry Collins was yelled at five times a day by general manager Sandy Alderson regarding the team’s approach during Spring Training, according to a team source. Alderson insisted that the team had to show the kind of selectivity at the plate that has been a hallmark of the general manager’s career. As a result, the Mets are seeing 156.11 pitches per game in 2013, up from […]
The other day I noticed my kid was reading this book that I recognized from when I was around his age. Jonathan Livingston Seagull, by Richard Bach. The short novel about the transcendent ascension of a seagull who refused to be confined by the boundaries of his own defining limitations. He flew higher, faster, until he became a kind of zen master of flight and was even able to teleport if I recall. Like most […]
There was lots of good will to go around Citi Field on Opening Day. And with good reason, as the Mets opened their season superbly. Just about everyone that saw the field contributed. However, there were two large figures that were mostly missing – Ike Davis, and to a lesser extent, Lucas Duda. Davis went 0-for-5 with four strikeouts, while Duda was 0-for-2 with two walks and a strikeout. Both were the only two starters […]
I decided to shoot down to Port St. Lucie for a few days and take in a few minor league games and intra-squads. I wanted to catch some the new players I haven’t had a chance to see yet and also check out how some of our top prospects were progressing. Joe asked me to share some of my notes, quotes and observations because he wanted to give the readers here a glimpse of what’s […]
Every team has them, one or two players who’ve had flashes of brilliance here and there but have never quite put it together. Those of us who’ve partaken in the Fantasy Baseball arts can tell you there’s nothing like taking a flier on a high upside kid who makes a splash in the big pool, with the big fish, and doesn’t get eaten. Of course you don’t always get Trout, sometimes you end up with […]
That’s how Joel Sherman of the NY Post began his article this morning in which he asserts that this is the last year the Mets general manager gets to explain away a worsening major league product in the name of rebuilding. The patience extended the Alderson regime, in general, is greater than most in his position receive around here. Consider Brian Cashman’s Yankees have made the playoffs 14 of his 15 years as GM, including last […]
They all can’t throw like Matt Harvey this time of spring. Overpowering and arguably flawless in yesterday’s start against Miami, Harvey had one of those seamless starts pitchers rarely have in their third spring training game. Dillon Gee, today’s starter against Detroit in Lakeland, has no such illusions. “My mechanics are off,’’ Gee said. “It will be just my third start of the spring, so they are bound to be off. Spring training is for trying to […]
The New York Mets ended up winning 74 games during the 2012 season. Their Cy Young winner R.A. Dickey was traded and their most productive outfielder, Scott Hairston, has departed as well. The farm system may be in much better shape, and their projected 2014 payroll will be in the bottom of the majors for now – potentially opening a lot of financial flexibility going forward. However, is doom and gloom in store for the […]
Prospect maven John Sickels really loves righthander Noah Syndergaard, who he ranked #12 on his Top 50 Pitching Prospects list inside his 2013 Baseball Prospect Book. He shared what he wrote about Syndergaard on his site Minor League Ball this morning: Noah Syndergaard is one of my very favorite prospects. A supplemental first round pick in 2010 from high school in Texas, he’s thrived thus far in pro ball, generating very enthusiastic scouting reports to go along […]
