For a team that after three seasons still has so many holes to fill, I find it amazing how many times I read posts about trading away the few productive players we do have for either more prospects or merely for the fact that arbitration is approaching. Yesterday, in a post on MetsBlog announcing that Daniel Murphy was named National League Player of the Week, rather than a few congratulatory words as we did, I […]
In what I can only describe as disappointing, Terry Collins told reporters that Bobby Parnell is not close to returning — and in fact, is not even close to throwing a baseball right now. Although the Mets have not announced anything officially, it is all but confirmed that Parnell will be missing the remainder of the season. He has not pitched since July 30th. Parnell received an epidural shot to alleviate his neck pain earlier […]
Good ol’ Ted Berg wrote up a piece for USA Today where he details 16 reasons that being a Met fan isn’t so bad… It’s a light-hearted read on a Friday that’ll put a smile on your face, so here are some excerpts. 1. They’ve got the best mascot in sports Mr. Met is not just a member of the Mascot Hall of Fame — which is an actual thing — he’s also the first mascot […]
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 […]
With Binghamton closer Jeff Walters becoming an almost impenetrable ninth inning wall at NYSEG Stadium this summer, it would be easy to overlook the overall 2013 brilliance of the B-Met bullpen. That’s particularly the case with two unsung left-handers who have turned out stellar performances all summer from the Binghamton pen. Like two peas in a pod, Adam Kolarek and Chase Huchingson have been bedrock solid out of the bullpen for Binghamton this year. The […]
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 […]
It is becoming more and more evident that quality pitching is the hub of a pending baseball renaissance in New York’s Citi Field. Win or lose, a cadre of young pitching arms have kept the Mets competitive in Flushing for some two months now with Met pitching underlings tearing up the minor leagues at every level. The pitching uptick has many of the Met faithful thinking their turn in the sun may arrive sooner than anticipated. […]
YES!!! Mets righthander Dillon Gee credits his improved performance to his defense because he doesn’t have to be afraid to pitch to contact, he especially singles out Juan Lagares. “It gives you confidence to keep attacking because you know you’ve got guys out there that are playing hard and making all the plays for you,” Gee said. ”Juan tracks down everything out there in centerfield. It helps having that. Other than that, I’m throwing the ball […]
“Life is not always a matter of holding good cards, but sometimes, playing a poor hand well.” That’s a Chasen Bradford tweet I found as I searched to find something about the B-Mets’ relief pitcher. I was curious to know whether Bradford was talking about the cards he was dealt, a 35th round draft pick by the Mets in 2011, or just life’s cards folks are dealt in general. Whatever cards Bradford was dealt he’s […]
