Baseball America (B.A.) released their latest issue which not only featured Noah Syndergaard on the cover, but also listed their new top ten prospect rankings for all the teams in the NL East. The Mets had a bunch of names we have all seen on these top prospect lists before–Syndergaard, Travis d’Arnaud , Wilmer Flores, Brandon Nimmo and Gavin Cecchini. The one choice that took many off guard may have been Kevin Plawecki being listed as […]
As the Mets scramble to trim their 40-man roster to make room for players who finished the year on the disabled list or for prospects who could be lost to the Rule 5 draft, I keep contemplating the fate of Darin Gorski. Gorski, a Met left-handed pitcher in Binghamton went unprotected early in the spring and passed unclaimed through waivers. Gorski returned to the Mets minor leagues assigned to their Triple-A squad in Las Vegas. After recovering from an […]
Great pitching was the lifeline of the Binghamton Mets record setting baseball season this summer. Wherever you looked; the starting rotation, long relief or closing, the B-Met pitching excelled. There were multiple B-Mets who could be considered the 2013 Most Valuable Pitcher. I’ve boiled that choice down to four promising righthanded arms – Rafael Montero, Logan Verrett, Noah Syndergaard and Jeff Walters and one lefty, Darin Gorski. Rafael Montero was brilliant throughout his brief stay in the Binghamton rotation during the early […]
North side, east side Little Willy Willy wears the crown He’s the best damn shortstop ’round town Backhand, forehand Willy drives them silly He’s a contact bat an’ a whole bunch more than that ‘Cos little Willy, Willy won’t go home But you can’t push Willy round, Willy won’t go Try tellin’ everybody but, oh no Little Willy, Willy won’t go home Lyrics adapted from “Little Willy” by The Sweet I know, I know, don’t […]
With Ruben Tejada lost for the season due to a broken leg, the Mets have promoted shortstop Wilfredo Tovar. According to today’s media notes, he is not in tonight’s starting lineup, but will be available off the bench to Terry Collins. I had the privilege of enjoying a summer of baseball watching Wilfredo Tovar play shortstop in Binghamton. The knock on Tovar is he’s a prototypical “good field – no stick” infielder. Good field simply doesn’t […]
Recently promoted from Triple-A Las Vegas, catcher Juan Centeno will make his first major league appearance today against the San Francisco Giants. The longtime minor leaguer – who, even after seven years of professional play, is only 23 years old – was called up on September 9 and will play in his first major league game at 7:10 p.m. today. Centeno spent two years playing for the GCL Mets before he was promoted in 2009 to play Short-Season […]
The Binghamton Mets had a memorable 2013 season. They finished at 86-55 in the regular season, which was the best record in the organizations twenty-two year history. The B-Mets won their division and entered the post season for the first time since 2004. The results of their playoff run was not what they expected, but overall they had a great season and every person that’s a part of their organization should hold their heads up […]
Baseball America has been rolling out some of their minor league postseason awards with the end of the season in sight. Yesterday, they named Byron Buxton their MiLB Player of the Year, and they released their Minor League All-Star team this morning. BA handed out first and second team honors, with Rafael Montero being the lone Met prospect to be honored. The Triple-A pitcher grabbed the final starting pitcher’s slot on the first-team. Here’s what Matt Eddy had to say about the […]
A recent Bleacher Report post listed the 2013 New York Met All-Prospect team. At shortstop, Bleacher Report tabbed Gavin Cecchini as this years Met shortstop of the future. Don’t get me wrong, this is not intended to be a knock on Cecchini. As a number one draft selection, Cecchini automatically gains recognition as a highly regarded Met prospect. Even so Bleacher Report’s selection of Cecchini and the statement saying the young Cecchini very well might […]
