With Murphy Out, Don’t Rush Ike

An article by posted on March 31, 2010 0 Comments

With the news that Murphy will miss some time due to injury, the one thing I can ask for is the organization to not rush the development of Ike Davis. The plan for Davis after his impressive spring was for him to be sent down and get some seasoning at the minor league level. With […]

Jon Heyman of SI.com had the following to say in a post to his Daily Scoop.

So here we are Met Nation awaiting another season to begin and hoping that our team comes together to replace the pain and hurt of the three previous seasons. When Spring Training began, the Met lineup appeared set; an injury to Carlos Beltran’s knee and Jose Reyes’ thyroid condition had dampened the optimism of even […]

Do Mets Still Have Problems With Positional Depth?

Depth… Depth… Depth… How deep are the Mets? It’s a thought that sometimes falls through the cracks. The Mets received some great news about Reyes’ and his thyroid issues so he should be getting back to baseball very soon once he’s in baseball shape. This situation, although disaster was averted, opened the door to many questions about what would […]

This Spring we’ve gotten to look at some of our young prospects and they have impressed fans, the media and the team.  The reports that the farm system was dead have been greatly exaggerated it seems.  Fernando Martinez, Ike Davis, Jon Niese and Jenrry Mejia are having great springs, so of course there has been plenty […]

First I would like to thank Sach for bringing this to my attention. Back in 2008 the Mets were desperate to shake up the lineup and get guys to play harder. They decided to bring up the young first baseman Nick Evans. He was dominating in AA and got the call to play left field […]

Once in a while, I like to sit down, relax, and escape into the world of Mets baseball. It’s a beautiful time to do that right now as Spring Training is heating up, and there’s already so much swirling around Mets camp to consider and debate. I love all the excitement that is being generated by our […]

I Like Ike – Mets Need To Bring Davis North…

An article by posted on March 5, 2010 0 Comments

This past offseason, the merciless bashing of the Mets organization seemed to reach it’s zenith. If you listened to talk radio and read all the blogs and papers you would have thought Omar Minaya was the boogieman. Was the criticism justified?
