Fan Shot By David Eckert Starting Pitcher It has been relatively well documented that the Mets are expected to be players in the starting pitching market this year. Some think that they might be interested in a guy like Bronson Arroyo. I am completely against making a move for any starting pitcher that is going to command a multiyear deal and over $5 million. As of right now, the locks in the Mets rotation are […]
The 2013 season was one where we saw some New York Mets prospects rise to the occasion, and in some cases, turn our heads—and in other cases there were prospects that completely fell off the map. Predicting which prospects pan out is not an easy task, and there are times where we fall in love with prospects, then fall out of love with them, only to fall in love with them all over again as […]
Welcome to the first installment of our offseason Mets Organizational Depth Charts. Each week, we’ll take a look at the top players at each position in the Mets organization. We hope to provide our readers with some insight into what the Mets currently have at the major-league level, as well as some players they can expect to hear about from the minor-leagues in the coming years. We’ll start things off with the backstops. MLB Travis […]
“What Outfield?” Much has been said regarding the future of the Mets’ outfield, with many suggesting a run at CarGo, Ellsbury, Choo, or Stanton. That certainly should be a focal point for this offseason; however, with the lack of production from the infield, even more questions have emerged. Let’s take a look at the situation at each infield spot. First Base Entering the 2013 season, Ike Davis was high on everybody’s list as a potential […]
With the New York Mets (41-50) about to embark on the second half of the the 2013 season, I hit up two dozen of our MMO writers for their overall grades by position for our Mid-Season Report Cards. For added measure we also included Terry Collins, Sandy Alderson and Mr. Met who was the only one to score an A+. So without further ado, here’s our 2013 Mid-Season Mets Report Cards. Terry Collins C- TC […]
I’m sure many of us are excited to see the Mets’ catcher of the future, Travis d’Arnaud, take the field this spring. Sure, he likely won’t head north with the big club right away, but all reports indicate that he is the real deal. I don’t know about you, but I am definitely seeking the reassurance that d’Arnaud has what it takes to be a Major League catcher. Luckily, I received that reassurance a few […]
What frightens me most about this coming offseason as compared to the last 3-4 is the enormity of moves that will be required to fill the vastness of areas that need correcting if we are to make a dent in the standings in 2013 to 2015. Whereas in off-seasons past where each year had 2-3 items on our list of immediate priorities, we now find perplexing questions, major problems, and deep concerns at almost every position on the team. […]
The New York Post’s Joel Sherman wrote that the Mets should look to sign catcher Russell Martin if the Yankees decide to let him walk at the end of the season. Sherman said that Martin is already used to playing in New York and that the Mets are “desperate to add power, and Martin’s 21 homers were eighth among catchers in the majors this season.” You can look at Martin’s gritty attitude and intangibles and the […]
As they close the door on yet another disappointing season, and start looking towards 2013, catcher is definitely one of the areas of concern for the New York Mets. Josh Thole isn’t coming around offensively, so the Mets brought in Shoppach earlier this year to see if he would be a viable option for 2013. The Mets were gauging whether or not Shoppach would fit in with the team philosophy, and hopefully bring a little […]
