Wilmer Flores has Las Vegas sitting at the top of the division… So much of the New York Met sales pitch over the last several years has been a message of hope. Met fans were asked to think forward as the franchise went about the business of establishing a culture and practices geared at making their team competitive year in and year out. The first order of business we were told was to vastly improve […]
During the first four months of the 2013 season, Cesar Puello has finally displayed why he has been so highly touted as an exciting five-tool prospect. So far, Puello has performed at an MVP level for the Binghamton Mets, consistently displaying each of his five tools, while absolutely scorching the ball. His batting average now stands at league leading .334 with a .411 on-base, a .563 slugging, and a .973 OPS that all rank in the top […]
Updated by Matt Musico Noah Syndergaard continues to show he can handle the competition up in Double-A. While at the MLB Futures Game earlier this month, the tall right-hander said he had two personal goals this season: to make it to the Futures Game and get promoted to Double-A by the end of the season. He’s already done both, and his stock is rising with each start for the B-Mets. In two starts this week, Thor […]
Allan Dykstra was drafted in the first round of the 2008 MLB Draft by the San Diego Padres. He played his college ball at Wake Forest University, and the Demon Deacon was considered one of the top power threats in college baseball at the time. Some considered Dykstra to be a better prospect than Ike Davis coming out of college, mainly because of his power and his ability to get on base. He was a […]
Here’s what John Sickels had to say about Cesar Puello in his MiLB Gameday thread… New York Mets prospect Cesar Puello went 1-for-3 with a double for Double-A Binghamton yesterday, giving him a season line of .332/.401/.571 with 16 homers and 23 stolen bases. He’s been particularly hot lately, hitting .361 in his last 10 games with five doubles, a homer, four steals, and a 6/7 BB/K ratio. Tools have never been the problem with the 22-year-old Puello, but he’s […]
According to Adam Rubin of ESPN New York, the Mets are considering Jenrry Mejia for a start next Saturday. The Mets play a doubleheader on Friday in Washington, and will need an extra pitcher on Saturday. Also being considered, but I view as extreme long-shots, are Chris Schwinden, Jacob deGrom, and Rafael Montero – neither of whom are on the 40-man roster. MMO Prediction: Mejia will make his 2013 debut and have a solid performance after a […]
Keith Law is pissing me off more and more lately. His apparent dislike of anything associated with the Mets becomes more blatant and over-the-top as time goes by. This week, he really went out of his way to kill the Mets system is a series of questions posed to him during a chat on ESPN Insider. Take a look… Dave (San Diego): Any small sample of an apology for calling Josh Satin worse Yuniesky Betancourt […]
After hitting two more home runs last night in a 4-for-5 outburst for Triple-A Las Vegas, Wilmer Flores now has 12 homers and 74 RBIs halfway through the season. His batting line of .325/.361/.537 along with his 33 doubles and 51 runs scored, puts him among the PCL leaders in all of those offensive categories. He has nothing left to prove. Today, Flores took home the No. 6 spot on Baseball America’s latest Prospect Hot Sheet. […]
I’m sitting two rows behind the home dugout on the first base side on Autograph Session and Home Run Derby day, the day before the Eastern League All-Star game in New Britain, Connecticut. A near 90-degree sun is beating down on a glorious summer day. A huge throng of fans snake from the hallway below the stands, up a stairwell in left field and then back down in front of the third base dugouts waiting […]
