If there’s anything we’ve become good at these last four years it’s saying “just wait till 2014, 2015, etc.” More specifically, yet ironically lacking specifics, is that we generally say “We’re building for the future” and “Next year.” There’s always this concept of a Master Plan, or something resembling the religious concept of Intelligent Design–that Sandy Alderson has been building this team from the farm up, evolving our philosophies, shifting our statistical focus, and player […]
Today’a announcement that catching prospect Kevin Plawecki would be promoted to Double-A Binghamton is going to make one particular person very happy – B-Mets manager, Pedro Lopez, who thirsts for the Eastern League Championship. Lopez had a taste of championship baseball in his mouth and was hungry for more. Last winter, Lopez got his first crack at managing a winter baseball team in his homeland of Puerto Rico. With Lopez’s leadership, The Criollos de Caguas survived […]
So not only did Wilmer Flores play third base again — but he took Michael Wacha deep for his 15th home run of the year. Flores is approaching relatively impressive numbers for a full season of play (20 HRs, 100 RBI, .300+ average) and yet is still being kept down in Triple-A. The fact that he’s now gotten two consecutive starts at third feels like the ultimate tease, while all signs have pointed to him […]
With Zack Wheeler and Jenrry Mejia now firmly entrenched after promotions from the minors, which Mets prospect are you now most excited to see? I posed the question to some of our writers and here is what they came up with: Daniel - I hope Travis d’Arnaud can get healthy and productive and make an appearance at some point. John Buck is definitely back to Earth and Anthony Recker hasn’t proven enough to get consistent playing time. […]
Thoughts from Joe D. I wanted to chime in on a post that appeared here yesterday. It was an excellent discussion about the possibility of trading Travis d’Arnaud for Jurickson Profar, where Kevin Plawecki would fit in, and the possibility of taking a flyer on the currently injured Corey Hart who becomes a free agent after this season. First, I disagree that a lot needs to fall in place for Plawecki to be a solid […]
Last week, when I saw those words in my title leading off a paragraph about Kevin Plawecki, the first thing that came to my mind was that the author was obviously frequenting too many of the the wrong sites. Had he come to Metsmerized for the dope on Plawecki, he may have been talking about him for as long as I have. That said, Nathaniel Stoltz of FanGraphs puts Plawecki on his list of five […]
The B-Mets went above and beyond for anyone who attended their game yesterday — not only did Noah Syndergaard turn in a relatively effective performance, but the Mets slammed five home runs as part of a 14-3 blowout victory. Syndergaard’s three runs allowed were all listed as unearned because of an error in the sixth that allowed a runner to reach base, and Thor served up a two-out home run. Outside of that inning, however, […]
Welcome to MMN Storylines, where you get a quick wrap-up of last night’s top performers.. Our first-round pick in the ’13 Draft, Dominic Smith, hit his first professional home run last night. It was part of a three hit game, where he went 3-for-5 with 3 RBIs. Smith and Wuilmer Becerra both had nice games, with Becerra going 2-for-4 with two doubles. Daniel Muno probably went ahead and had the best game for all Mets Minor League players last night, […]
Catcher Kevin Plawecki slammed a two-out, three-run homer in his first at-bat with Advanced-A St. Lucie last night, who beat Palm Beach by the score of 8-6. The 2012 first round draft pick added an RBI-double and went 2-for-5 with four RBIs in the game. Plawecki, Jayce Boyd and Bret Mitchell had been promoted from Savannah to St. Lucie before the game which you can read below. Original Post 6/20 This isn’t shocking news, but we’ve been […]
