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 of talk about them joining the big team once camp breaks. Coming into Spring Training, the fifth sport in the […]
The New York Mets have seen darker days than this; the midnight massacre in which Tom Seaver was traded away comes to mind. Another bad time for the Mets and their fan base was in the early 90’s when the Mets had the worst team that money could buy followed by the failure of Generation K. 2002 was a horrible year as the Mets signed a bunch of over the hill players for a lot […]
If Omar ever decides to get aggressive and sign Jason Bay the way he did with certain other players, what happens with our “untouchable phenom” Fernando Martinez? On the last day of the winter meetings the Mets offered Jason Bay a deal that is believed to be around $65 million dollars for 4 years. One of the reasons the Mets didn’t go after a left fielder last season, and opted to go with Daniel Murphy […]
If you were watching today’s game when Gary Sheffield left the bases with apparent leg stiffness, Gary and Ron were reciting the litany of Met injuries, and having trouble remembering all of them. That got me wondering who has not been injured out of the Opening Day roster. Take a look: Out of the Opening Day lineup, only Wright and Murphy have never been injured. Castillo is listed because we don’t have enough information on […]
Adam Rubin of the Daily News was kind enough to answer a few questions for Mets Merized Online. It’s been a hectic week as far as Mets news goes, and I wanted to get his thoughts on the Halladay situation, Carlos Beltran’s bone bruise, the shift in our top prospects, and other Mets concerns. 1. According to a report by Jon Heyman, Omar Minaya rejected a trade that would have landed Roy Halladay in exchange for prospects; […]
We can beat a dead horse all day long about how bad and disappointing the 2009 Mets have become, and how we’re going to have to endure a few months of meaningless baseball now that all hope for the playoffs is basically lost. So instead of beating the horse, I’m just going to point out a few things I noticed when perusing stats last night (through Sunday’s games)….. The Mets have 53 home runs, worst […]
New York Mets outfielder and top prospect Fernando Martinez’s injury woes have sidelined him again. Martinez was placed on the Disabled List due to inflammation behind his right knee. Martinez had missed the last four games, and had not played since July 3rd against the Phillies. Infielder Argenis Reyes was called up to take Martinez’s spot on the roster. Martinez will likely retun to the minors after his rehab stint. By my count I think […]
For the last 4 years we have been hearing about Fernando “F-Mart” Martinez. The 16 year old was praised as the future of the New York Mets. F-Mart was the 5 tool player that the Mets were going to make into their next superstar. There were growing pains of course, the last couple of seasons F-Mart was injured. Some were wondering if F-Mart would live up to his expectations. The 2009 Mets as we all […]
The Mets have announced their lineup for tonight’s game against the Phillies and it’s the same lineup that won the game for us last night. I’m not concerned about that, they won the game but there are two players who will be sitting on the bench tonight that do concern me: Daniel Murphy and Fernando Martinez who did not play last night either. I understand that both guys are lefties and thePhillies decided to put […]
