During the Mets telecast yesterday, roving reporter Kevin Burkhardt reported that Double-A pitcher Noah Syndergaard, could be making landfall in the big leagues by as soon as July of 2014 at the rate he’s going, according to Mets VP of Player Development Paul DePodesta. This would be similar to the track the team took in promoting Matt Harvey and Zack Wheeler - finishing strong at Double-A, starting the new season at Triple-A, and a promotion to the bigs […]
As the Kansas Royals get ready to visit Citi Field for a weekend set with the Mets, it occurred to me that there is a whole generation of baseball fans out there, who weren’t even born when the Royals ruled the western division of the American League. The 1975 Royals finished in second place, but the Royals from 1976-1978 won the western division. They also lost all three playoff series to the New York Yankees […]
When the New York Mets traded Carlos Beltran, arguably one of their top three position players in history, for prospect Zack Wheeler, they said this guy was going to be good. Really good. We got a glimpse of just how good Tuesday night in Miami when he took a no-hitter into the seventh inning. He lost it, but also impressive was despite the emotions of losing history, he kept his composure enough to minimize the damage to […]
Before Sandy Alderson rolled into town and traded Carlos Beltran a couple of weeks after drafting Brandon Nimmo with his first selection in the 2011 draft, the top prospect for the Mets was Jenrry Mejia. However, by July of that season, he was merely an afterthought as he was beset by injuries that included Tommy John Surgery. His status as a Mets prospect had shrunk to nothingness. The more and more people I talk to […]
Sometimes I wonder where would the Mets be right now if they had only started the season with Juan Lagares as their Opening Day centerfielder as I had hoped all along. As he tore up Triple-A pitching to the tune of .346/.378/.551 while playing the best centerfield I’ve ever seen since Carlos Beltran was in his prime, it frustrated me to see the parade of scrubs, journeymen and Quad-A players the team paraded in center […]
Echoing what he told us last week, Mets GM Sandy Alderson said today that there is no movement on the trade front as of yet. He does not expect to fill any significant needs before the deadline. Last week, Alderson said not to expect any sweeping changes before the deadline. This shows a measured approach by someone who is walking a tightrope right now. I still believe he will not pull the rug out from under […]
I find it impossible to read an article or a forum about Carlos Beltran without there being some mention of “the curveball” or Adam Wainwright. That of course refers to Game 7 of the 2006 NLCS where, with the bases loaded and the winning run on first base with two outs in the ninth, Beltran stared a curveball from Adam Wainwright all the way into the glove of Yadier Molina, thus ending the series. I […]
Brave service men and women are still in Afghanistan protecting the American ideal. Here is a special Fan Shot that comes from one of our friends still serving in Afghanistan, Staff Sergeant Michael Cunningham, US Army. I am about to return from a nine month deployment to Afghanistan with a renewed optimism about the Mets and their second half. My first game at Shea had Mike Scott on the mound and my first autograph […]
Disclaimer: I am not necessarily in favor of trading Bobby Parnell, but since there’s a recent post for the opposite side of this argument, I figured I could play a little devil’s advocate. Bobby Parnell is arguably one of the hottest names on the back-end relief market right now. He hasn’t allowed a home run all year, his WHIP is under 1.00, and his ERA sits at 2.30 with 17 saves. In his first full […]
