Now that Wilmer Flores has finally been promoted to the Mets, the big question now becomes who’s the odd man out? Gun to my head, I’d have to say Justin Turner is the man on the bubble… Yeah, yeah, yeah I know he’s gritty, he’s fun to watch, he’s got red hair, and sometimes he really comes through in the clutch. I get all that. But think about it for a minute, it’s not like […]
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 […]
For the second time in two games since being named the closer while Bobby Parnell heals up, David Aardsma failed to get the job done as the Royals beat the Mets 4-3 at Citi Field this afternoon. Jeremy Hefner started the game and showed some improvement after back-to-back poor starts and delivered a quality start in a 110-pitch effort. He allowed three earned runs on eight hits, walked none and struck out six in 6.0 innings […]
With the New York Mets (41-50) about to embark on the second half of the the 2013 season, I hit up two dozen of our MMO writers for their overall grades by position for our Mid-Season Report Cards. For added measure we also included Terry Collins, Sandy Alderson and Mr. Met who was the only one to score an A+. So without further ado, here’s our 2013 Mid-Season Mets Report Cards. Terry Collins C- TC […]
With the second half of the 2013 season coming up, and the Mets’ playoff hopes all but in the past, it seems right to start thinking about the young talent that could be brought up to Queens once the minor league season is finished in September. Here are my predictions for who that young talent will be. Pitchers Giancarlo Alvarado – Heard the name? Probably not. Alvarado, although not young at 35, was signed by […]
If you’re wondering like me why outfield prospect Cesar Puello hasn’t been promoted to Triple-A yet, Adam Rubin of ESPN New York sheds some light. A team official suggested a promotion to Las Vegas is not imminently looming for Puello, though. The Mets do not mind Puello finally having a prolonged period of success. Plus, the outfield is about to become crowded in Triple-A with den Dekker very soon joining the 51s outfield, which already […]
Imagine waking up tomorrow morning, checking out MMO and reading that Matt Harvey got injured. Our jaws would drop, our stomachs would sink and our heart would skip a beat. Then, to take it one step further, imagine if our ace and the pitcher we intend to build our future around was injured not by pitching, but while taking a turn at bat. Wouldn’t it be that much worse? The question I raise is this: […]
Updated by Satish Ram at 7:45 PM: Adam Rubin is reporting that first baseman Josh Satin, center fielder Collin Cowgill and lefthanded reliever Josh Edgin will be promoted from Triple-A Las Vegas to replace Ike Davis, Mike Baxter and Robert Carson who were all optioned to Triple-A after today’s 8-4 loss to the Marlins. Satin will be added to the 40-man roster to fill the empty spot left when Rick Ankiel was released yesterday. That means within the last 24 hours, […]
It’s time. Losing seven out of our last eight to the Miami Marlins is proof enough. Measured changes at Citi Field are long overdue. Binghamton’s southpaw reliever Jack Leathersich has been nothing short of dominant this season — and his ascent to the show should be at the top of a long list of personnel changes. As a B-Met fan who attends Binghamton games regularly, I would hate to see Leathersich go. He is a […]
