So if you Mets fans out there are anything like me, it pains you to see how poorly our favorite team is playing. Usually at this time, the team is at least still somewhat relevant and playing somewhat exciting baseball. But not this year. Sure, there are some good things to look forward to with the big-league club, especially the much-anticipated debut of Zack Wheeler on Tuesday. However, later on in the day Tuesday, the […]
Rick Ankiel has parted way with the New York Mets says Adam Rubin of ESPN New York. The 33-year old elected to become a free agent rather than accept a minor league assignment after being designated for assignment last week. Ankiel was signed by the Mets exactly one month ago on May 13th after being released by the Houston Astros just four days prior. He batted .182 with 25 strikeouts in just 66 at-bats in […]
On Monday night, I watch the replay of Johan Santana’s no-hitter on SNY and was just as captivated as the night I watched it live on television. But this time around, I kept thinking to myself what could have been with Santana had his Mets’ tenure not been decimated by injuries. Then I of course looked to the future hope of the Mets’ starting rotation that almost certainly does not include the veteran lefty. Matt […]
In his latest ESPN Insider post, prospect analyst Keith Law ranked RHP Zack Wheeler at No. 15 in his recently updated Top 25 Prospects. Law has the following righthanded pitchers ranked ahead of Wheeler who dropped from the No. 13 spot in February; Taijuan Walker, Archie Bradley, Gerrit Cole, Aaron Sanchez and Jameson Taillon. “Wheeler has top of the rotation stuff,” Law writes, “and has walked just five batters in his last four outings.” At […]
The Mets announced that they have signed right-handed pitcher David Aardsma to a minor-league deal. Aardsma was originally drafted by the San Francisco in the first round of the 2003 amateur draft. He has spent parts of seven seasons in the major leagues with five different teams. most recently with the Yankees in 2012. Aardsma owns a career 4.22 ERA in 255 appearances all in relief. After the Yankees released him early last month, he signed with […]
Some readers have become accustomed to the great minor league coverage here on Mets Merized Online over the past couple of months. Truth be told, the reason you have seen such an abundance of coverage lately was because we have been gearing up for something big… INTROUDUCING METSMINORS.NET!!! MMO, was the first site to provide daily Mets minor league recaps in 2005, years before everyone else decided to join the party. After almost ten years […]
There has been much talk and speculation recently about the possible demotion of Ike Davis to the minors. Such discussion is certainly warranted considering Davis’ performance over the first 40 games of the season. The Mets’ struggling first baseman is hitting .156 with four homers and nine RBI. His on-base percentage is an unhealthy .238 and his .259 slugging percentage is lower than what his batting average should be. His 2013 numbers through 40 games […]
The Terry Collins era was always going to go down as the bridge to brighter days. How else could you explain Sandy Alderson making Collins his first manager with the track record he possessed three years ago? Collins oversaw teams collapse in Houston and Anaheim, with the latter resulting in a mutiny. He was well-placed as a minor-league field coordinator, and could still be valuable in such a role for an organization going forward. The […]
Mets historians will recall how former GM Frank Cashen declared, ““those who contribute the least spray the most champagne” after being doused by reliever Randy Niemann during the 1986 NLCS championship celebration. I think it’s time to take that mantra when it comes to Jordany Valdespin, except those that contribute the least shouldn’t be made the story. With Twitter, Facebook and blogs – both mainstream and otherwise – available throughout the 24/7/365 news cycle, it’s impossible to […]
