When you’re a kid from Louisiana, New York must seem like another universe. People from New York often think that Brooklyn is a completely different universe. So imagine being Mets’ 2012 first-round draft-pick Gavin Cecchini. Not only is he a Louisiana boy playing in New York, but he’s also getting a close up taste of Brooklyn as the Cyclones’ starting shortstop. But Cecchini said that it really hasn’t been too much of a culture shock, […]
The New York Mets fourth round pick, second baseman L.J. Mazzilli, has officially signed with the team according to the company’s official Twitter page. The Mets made the announcement early on saturday posting a Tweet which read, “Mets 4th rounder UConn 2nd baseman L.J. Mazzilli, Lee Mazzilli’s son, has officially signed and will be sent to @BKCyclones”. The announcement marks yet another 2013 draftee to come to terms with the organization. Mazzilli, the 116th pick […]
In between watching R.A. Dickey shut down the Baltimore Orioles to get the Mets back on a winning streak, check here for Brandon Nimmo photos and updates. Nimmo made his Brooklyn Cyclones debut tonight at MCU Park in Coney Island. First at-bat: Nimmo grounds out to first base with pitcher covering. 0-for-1 Update: Nimmo ranges nicely to his right into left center field to record the final out of the top of the third inning. […]

The New York Mets need pitching, pitching and more pitching. That’s why it’s quite strange that the team selected high school outfielder Brandon Nimmo with the No. 13 overall pick in this year’s MLB Draft. I can echo Robert Knapel’s sentiments on the subject that this pick is odd. First off, Nimmo, who is the highest drafted player ever from Wyoming, never even played high school baseball since the state does not have a high […]
Sandy Alderson has made his first pick as general manager of the New York Mets. With the 13th overall pick in the 2011 MLB Draft, the Mets have selected Brandon Nimmo, and outfielder from Wyoming. Nimmo did not play high school baseball because there is no high school baseball league in Wyoming. He only played American Legion ball. This pick is certainly a reach as Nimmo was ranked as the 35th best player available in […]
So now that the Mets have parted ways with both Luis Castillo and Oliver Perez, there are a variety of opinions on how this soap opera has panned out. Should they have stayed on because they were owed a king’s ransom, the Mets would essentially be paying them either way, right? Or does this truly show that the new world order on the Mets front office team has an agenda, one that says, if you […]
Recently I did an email interview with Joe DeMayo who does a fantastic job covering the Mets Minor Leagues and the MLB Draft for the excellent Mets site, St. Lucie To Flushing. 1. Where do you rank the Mets Minor League System on a scale of 1-10 in the following areas: A) Starting Pitching: 3. And that could possibly be generous. Frankly the only pitchers that I truly see as big league starting pitchers in […]
Well, we’re in for a long day of draft picks on Day 2. The Mets did not have a pick in the Compensation Round or Round 2.

Pick 89 (Rd. 3): Norman Blake Forsythe, Catcher R/R; Jr. […]
