There’s something weird going on in Port St. Lucie… I can’t put my finger on it, but it’s starting to spread like wild fire… It’s one thing when loony Jerry Manuel starts hallucinating about Jenrry “Wild Thing” Mejia being the next Mariano Rivera. After all, we’ve all become accustomed to way-out comments like that from Manuel who in addition to being a manager, gives the Mets some additional shock and entertainment value for their dollar. And getting bang for […]

Kevin Goldstein revealed his Top 11 Mets Prospects on Thursday for Baseball Prospectus. Like some of the prospects lists we’ve seen already, the top pick is once again Jenrry Mejia. Here is what Kevin had to say about the 20-year old uber-prospect. “It’s rare to find a fastball with plus-plus velocity and movement, but Mejia has just that… he needs to find a consistent breaking ball. He gets around on his slider too often, […]
Keith Law, of ESPN.com, has released his annual Top 100 Prospects. The following are his scouting reports for the four Mets prospects who cracked his list. Jenrry Mejia #23 – Mejia entered 2009 with no experience above short-season leagues, but finished it in Double-A despite missing time in the middle of the year with a strained finger on his pitching hand. He has top-of-the-rotation stuff, but is just 20 with the command you’d expect to see […]
It’s no secret that most Performance Enhancing Drugs, PED’s, are readily available and in most cases legal in many of the Latin countries where so many of today’s baseball players hail from. These banned substances are especially rampant in the Dominican Republic and in Venezuela where aspiring baseball players are exposed to them at a very young age. Sadly, many of these young players, some as young as 15-16, are encouraged to take these performance enhancing drugs to improve […]

Here is a quick look at how some of our boys are performing in the Winter Leagues and the Arizona Fall League. Most of these leagues are just getting underway so keep in mind that these are very small sample sizes. The Mets will also have some players appearing in the Puerto Rican League when their season begins in two weeks. Venezuela Josh Thole (C) - Our catcher of the future is tearing it up and […]

These are desperate times for the New York Mets my friends. It’s times like this that will test the true mettle of a team. Yesterday, I discussed the lack of toughness among the Mets players, and today I have to question the patience and the scruples of upper management, namely Omar Minaya. There are whispers in the organization that the time has come to bring up prospects like pitchers Brad Holt and Jenrry Mejia, as well […]
