Do not read into Zack Wheeler’s demotion that the Mets think Jenrry Mejia will replace Johan Santana on the roster and in the rotation. When I asked Terry Collins of his preparation plans for life without Santana to start the season, the name Jeremy Hefner was only one to pop out. And, without hesitation. Collin McHugh, who was also demoted to the minor league camp, made spot starts last year and could be in position again if something were to develop with Hefner.Mejia’s development […]
Updated by John Delcos at 10:00 AM Players hit in the cages this morning as it rained here. The weather here has been awful; rainy and chilly. Nothing sun drenched about PSL these days. Those hitting include Daniel Murphy, who took an injection for a strained intercostal muscle on his right side. Also on the injury front, Jenrry Mejia was examined in New York yesterday for a thyroid issue and Zack Wheeler threw on flat ground and will do so […]
With Jenrry Mejia in New York for an exam, several other Mets pitchers took the mound today in a B game against Miami. We expect to get a full report on Mejia at some point tomorrow and I’ll post as soon as I hear something from John. For now, Sandy Alderson called it an “undisclosed medical issue.” Shaun Marcum, who didn’t endeared himself to manager Terry Collins when he arrived to camp out of shape, and asked out of his […]
It wasn’t too long ago that when the subject of top Mets pitching prospects came up, the first two names that jumped to mind were righthanders Jenrry Mejia and Jeurys Familia. As a matter of fact, going into the 2011 season, both were still ranked as the two best pitching prospects in the Mets system. Anthony DiComo wrote a little about that this morning on Mets.com and it reminded me of how quickly and easily […]
I’ve booked my hotel for Port St. Lucie and beginning on March 5th, I will be reporting live from Mets Spring Training exclusively for MMO. I’ve been busy this entire week coordinating many things with the New York Mets and Joe D. and we have some nice things in store for you. We’ve already lined up some exclusive player interviews and plan on bringing you some new video analysis, a daily report, live blogging and tweets, […]
Several days ago I gave you my idea for the Mets’ batting order and it included Kirk Nieuwenhuis as the leadoff hitter, so I was happy to read Adam Rubin’s story he will be given first chance to win that job. Nieuwenhuis will be the leadoff hitter for Saturday’s exhibition game against Washington. The Mets like Nieuwenhuis’ patience – he sees over four pitches an at-bat – and he had moderate success in the role last year […]
For better or worse, Michael Bourn fell off the New York Mets radar Monday when he agreed to a four-year, $48 million deal with the Cleveland Indians. Mets/MLB beat writer Anthony DiComo suggests, if history is any indication, Sandy Alderson committed an error. DiComo wrote: The 11th overall Draft pick has a bizarre history of busts relative to the picks around it. Of the 48 players in history taken 11th overall, only five have amassed […]
It has been a long time coming, but its realistic to think this could be the week the Mets finally turn the corner. Since arriving in Queens following the completion of the 2010 season, Sandy Alderson has done little more than cut the fat. Crippled by the bloated contracts issued by his predecessor, Omar Minaya, and a shoe-string budget courtesy of the poor investing decisions of team owner, Fred Wilpon, Sandy was left with few […]
I know what you thinking.. How on earth could we spend the entire season talking about the bullpen…that woeful bullpen…and suddenly decide that the team’s offense should be the top priority this offseason? Heres why: Mets rank 8th in MLB with 1,169 strike outs. Mets rank 22nd in MLB on the year, hitting just .242 with RISP Mets rank 24th in MLB with only 407 extra-base hits, resulting in a .383 slugging percentage. Good for […]
