Sandy Alderson was a guest of Mike Francesa on WFAN today and said a few things that are worth discussing… Aside from the usual dialog about how everything is going according to plan and things are going as well as expected, there were a few things worth noting and I’ll post on each one. First thing’s first, Matt Harvey… While he said the injury to his ace has had an impact, “It’s not as significant […]
In an effort to bolster the rotation after injuries to Jeremy Hefner and Jenrry Mejia, the New York Mets today announced the club agreed to terms with righthanded pitcher Daisuke Matsuzaka on a one-year contract. Matsuzaka will wear #16 and will start tomorrow’s night game against Detroit. A corresponding move will be announced prior to tomorrow’s game. Matsuzaka, 32, pitched in Cleveland’s organization this season, making 19 starts for Columbus (AAA) of the International League. […]
David Wright ready for whatever comes at him armed with his Wilson A2K Glove. David Wright Wilson A2K Signature Glove Most noticeable difference is the color scheme. He uses an orange tan coloring for the glove itself, with blue lacing and blue bindings to make it specific to the New York Mets and him. The DW5 was created with extra-long fingers giving Wright as much lateral range as possible Has a Pro H web, used […]
The always enjoyable to read Ted Berg, now with USA Today, sets us straight on how fans view their top prospects and writes: Great players in the minors almost always graduate to the next level, but great players in the Majors have no place else to go. On the rare occasion a minor leaguer is in fact good enough to dominate in the bigs, he doesn’t hang around on the farm for long. Class AA […]
Just before the season started, Greg Prince of Faith and Fear in Flushing, was kind enough to send me out a copy of his new book, The Happiest Recap : First Base 1962-1973. It’s the first of four volumes chronicling the rich fifty year history of the New York Mets, told only the way you would expect from Greg – by recounting the team’s most memorable wins. That’s right, this is a win-by-win accounting of all those enduring […]
The hot-hitting Allan Dykstra, who received a little nod in a Prospect Spotlight yesterday, is also our MMN Player of the Week! Dykstra had a nice fling with the longball last week, slamming three homers to lead all Mets organizational players. His overall line on the week was .588/.696/1.118, as he supplemented his hot hitting with six walks at the plate. He drove in eight runs as well. Dykstra, and to this point in June, owns a .412/.553/.824 line […]
Anthony DiComo of MLB.com gave us a thorough draft preview for the New York Mets as we gear up for the 2013 MLB draft this Thursday. While it’s not always guaranteed an impact-type player will fall to the 11th overall pick (which is where the Mets currently reside), but Paul DePodesta shed some light on the depth of talent in this year’s draft: “There are some guys obviously that we like more than others, but there […]
Ike Davis may have saved his hold on a major league job and saved the Mets the cost of a plane ticket to Las Vegas, with his two groundball singles last night. Sandy Alderson was expected to meet with Terry Collins after the game to discuss Davis’ fate, a team source told Adam Rubin of ESPN New York. “When he came up with the bases loaded, I said, ‘If there’s anybody watching, if there’s a baseball ‘God,’ this […]
Terry Collins will go to home plate tomorrow with the line-up card and likely get booed. Surely, he’ll hear it when he makes a pitching change. It won’t be fair, but we know few things in baseball aren’t fair.Collins doesn’t have a contract beyond this season, and his lame duck status rises to the surface when the Mets go into a tailspin, as they did last week when they lost a season-high six straight games, and […]
