Check out the Mets Top 10 Prospects as compiled by Marc Hulet of FanGraphs, who did an excellent job of providing a detailed analysis on each player complete with statistical data as well. Fernando Martinez tops his list and he writes the following about him, Although some have already, it is far too early to give up on Martinez. Just 21 years old, the Dominican outfielder just needs to have a healthy season. When he did […]
I’m really starting to have second thoughts about the Mets going after free agent catcher Bengie Molina. I know how strongly I have advocated for Molina in the last two months, but am becoming more and more taken with Josh Thole as he toils away in Winter Ball with the hopes of impressing Mets brass and potentially earning a spot on the big league roster next season. Thole continues to wield a hot bat in Venezuela and […]
As we’ve done for the last two off seasons, we’ll try to get to your mailbag questions and comments at least once a week. Unfortunately, Christian has moved on, so until someone new decides they want to respond to site mail, you’ll have to contend with me. I may not get as analytical as my predecessor did, but I’ll try to answer your questions as best as I can. All I keep hearing about the Mets going after a […]
Like a wounded prizefighter hoping to get one last chance at the title, the Mets fought their way through a difficult 2009 season. They kept getting pushed aside, beaten down and left for dead. The season might have ended much earlier than Mets fans expected (like July), but at least the Mets gave the hearty fans in attendance for this final series at Citi Field something to smile about. Nelson Figueroa’s best pitching performance in […]
John Maine made his return to the Mets after a three month absence from the team following the world’s longest rehab stint. Although he was limited to a pitch count of 60 pitches, he took the loss when the bullpen failed to keep the Phillies in the park. The efforts (or lack thereof) of Tobi Stoner and Lance Broadway prevented the Mets from pulling off another late-inning comeback, although they did try valiantly to do […]
Last week, the Binghamton Mets announced their award winners for the 2009 season. In a short post-game ceremony, former B-Met Josh Thole, Pitcher, Roy Merritt and Shortstop, Ruben Tejada were recognized for personal accomplishments both on and off the field. Here are the the capsules from the team’s website. Most Inspirational Player: SS Ruben Tejada In just his third season as a member of the Mets farm system, this player has wowed his coaches, teammates […]
I know we still have almost a month to go before the 2009 regular baseball season is over but lets face facts the Mets season ended in July. It’s time for the Mets and us the fans to look to 2010. This past week Josh Thole joined the Mets for their series in Colorado. Thole had his first major league game last Thursday going 2-for-5 on the day and stole 2nd base. He had a […]
Even after an impressive 8-3 win over the Rockies, don’t expect me to gloat as much over a win or agonize as much over a loss as I once did throughout the season. Wins and losses don’t mean as much anymore given the Mets current circumstances. Instead, I look for outward signs of hope for next season because the way I see it, the Mets are officially in 2010 mode. There were certainly a couple of […]
Ask just about any Mets fan nowadays about who will be behind the plate in 2010, most will have no idea. And, I can’t really blame them, the Mets have not made getting a quality catcher a priority in the past few seasons, unless you call Brian Schneider and his .189/.272/.318 line quality. If you ask anyone connected to the Mets they’ll most likely say Josh Thole and Omir Santos, a tandem I dubbed Tholmir. […]
