The Mets have until Tuesday to make a decision on whether to add Pedro Feliciano, LaTroy Hawkins and Tim Byrdak to the 25 man roster. According to the rules of the new collective bargaining agreement, the Mets must inform each player by Tuesday if they intend to carry them on the major league roster. The alternatives are that either will be assigned to the minors and receive $100,000 or they will be released. It will be […]
Mack emailed me last night and told me the “Group 2″ starters were announced and he posted them on his site tonight. Here they are: Rafael Montero Domingo Tapia Jacob deGrom Tyler Pill Chase Huchingson Alex Panteliodis Logan Verrett He correctly points out, that is normally the group of pitchers that usually begin the season at Double-A Binghamton. As you know, I’ve posted my own projected minor league rotations and have updated them a few […]
Yesterday, I pretty much concluded, in a post you can read below, that reliever Greg Burke has just about locked up one of the final spots in the Mets bullpen. In the 9-1 loss to the Tigers on Thursday, Burke was brought in to get a critical out against one of the best hitters in the game, Miguel Cabrera. The side-winder induced Cabrera to pop up to end the fifth inning. Mission accomplished. After a […]
Good Saturday morning. A little talk in the clubhouse about Team USA losing last night to Mexico. The operative word being “little.’’ I’ve only been here a few days, but trust me on this one, after doing 20 some Spring Trainings the days are usually all alike. We’re usually in the clubhouse by 7:45 in the morning, sometimes earlier depending on where the game is that day. The first thing most players do is head […]
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 […]
Jenrry Mejia gets the ball this afternoon against Miami. As of now, Mejia will be used as a starter, but there are those in the organization who believe he’s better suited for the bullpen. Mejia prefers to start and has performed better in that role. Maybe it is because he has time to prepare for his assignment, maybe because he has more time to warm up, maybe it is an ego thing. Whatever it is, his […]
THE GAME: Ruben Tejada hit a two-run homer and Collin Cowgill drove in a run with double as the Mets won their exhibition opener, 5-3, over Washington. One game does not a spring training make, but if you’re going to play the games it is better to win them. WHEELER IMPRESSIVE: Zack Wheeler wowed them in his first appearance of the spring, giving up a walk and hit in two scoreless innings. Wheeler threw mostly fastballs and sliders, the […]
After reading the wonderful prospects list that some of my fellow MMO writers put together, (which is incredibly well-done, well-researched and a must-read for prospect gurus), I decided to share my own prospect list, which I have been working on for a while, with you all. In putting together this list, I tried to balance as best I could major league readiness with the so-called “ceiling” of each prospect. In compiling the list, I looked […]
The Mets don’t have much money to spend, and according to reports, most of the money at GM Sandy Alderson’s disposal will go towards fixing the outfield. The team is limiting itself to one multi-year deal which, again will likely go to an outfielder. Of course, this is necessary to improve the team because frankly, the outfield is terrible and definitely the weakness of the team. However, it will force the Mets to get creative […]
