Here’s a post from diehardmets who gives a good example of what the Mets offseason might look like using the Boston Red Sox model from last Winter. The question is where do you want to spend. Overpaying on Shin-Soo Choo or Jacoby Ellsbury is just repeating the mistakes of the past. I would think our fans are intelligent enough to remember Jason Bay and realize that repeating that mistake for even more years and money is not […]
I hope you all enjoyed my coverage of the Brooklyn Cyclones this summer. I certainly did! It was great to meet and interact with many of the team’s recent draft picks to see what’s in store for the future. And of course, Rich Donnelly is an awesome baseball mind, so it was great to hear his perspective each night. Below is a Q&A between myself and the MMO staff discussing the Cyclones’ season. It may […]
From September 24th to October 4th, the Mets will be running their instructional league down at the Spring Training complex in Port St. Lucie. There are 49 players attending for the next two weeks, including first-round picks Dominic Smith, Brandon Nimmo, and Gavin Cecchini. In his first full season of professional ball (extended spring training and Brooklyn), Cecchini had a decent year despite missing a significant chunk of time with an ankle injury. He endured a slow start […]
A recent Bleacher Report post listed the 2013 New York Met All-Prospect team. At shortstop, Bleacher Report tabbed Gavin Cecchini as this years Met shortstop of the future. Don’t get me wrong, this is not intended to be a knock on Cecchini. As a number one draft selection, Cecchini automatically gains recognition as a highly regarded Met prospect. Even so Bleacher Report’s selection of Cecchini and the statement saying the young Cecchini very well might […]
Having the opportunity to follow the Mets Minor league teams has been such a rewarding experience. Being a Mets fan for so many years, I have limited myself to only worrying about the big club, which has truly limited me to really knowing what the Mets have in their farm system. When I took on the task to pick the Mets Minors Player of the Week, I had to truly engulf myself into each team […]
Normally, the lower levels on the minor leagues serve the purpose of developing young players fresh out of the June MLB draft and to get them accustomed to life in professional baseball. But for the Brooklyn Cyclones, making the playoffs has basically been a perennial feat. However, the 2013 summer short season ended without a postseason berth for the Cyclones for just the fourth time in the team’s 13-year existence. It is important to note […]
From the Brooklyn Cyclones Brooklyn, N.Y. – September 1, 2013 – What Sunday night’s game lacked in runs early, it made up for late as all nine runs scored came from the seventh inning on as Aberdeen held on for a 5-4 victory over the Cyclones at MCU Park. Brooklyn rallied for three runs in the bottom of the ninth, but the come back fell just short. Tonight marked the first time in 30 games that […]
Brooklyn Cyclones’ manager Rich Donnelly has said on many occasions this summer that runs in the New York-Penn League are as precious as gold. But based on the past few games, his team has been filthy rich. The Cyclones pounded out 15 hits in an 8-1 victory Monday night at MCU Park over the Tri-City Valleycats, the Single-A short season affiliate of the Houston Astros. “It’s baseball,” said Donnelly, slightly perplexed about where his team’s […]
