It was a good week for top prospects Rafael Montero and Travis d’Arnaud; they were both recognized by Baseball America today in their weekly edition of the Prospect Hot Sheet. Montero has been hot for a while, but his most effective performances since getting promoted from Binghamton have come in his most recent starts. He made two appearances for the Las Vegas 51s this week, going 2-0 with a 0.64 ERA, one earned run, six […]
In a chat for ESPN Insider, baseball analyst Keith Law fielded a couple of questions about the Mets including one on Juan Lagares. Keith Law: Pretty darn good defender, better than I’d ever heard (never saw him before he reached the majors). He was 10th on my Mets prospect rankings before 2012, so he was on the radar, but spent about a decade in Savannah before he finally hit enough to move up the ladder. Joe […]
The Associated Press reports that baseball as we know it could be changing forever beginning next season. Major League Baseball is expanding its video review process next season, giving managers a tool they’ve never had. Commissioner Bud Selig calls it a historic moment for the game in a press conference in Cooperstown after two days of meetings with representatives of the 30 teams. The proposal is to be voted on by the owners in November. […]
According to Marc Carig of Newsday, Mets manager Terry Collins said Friday that he would like to get Wilmer Flores some chances at second base during his time with the team. The 22-year-old Flores is currently filling in at third base for the injured David Wright, but could increase his chances to stick with the big club if he shows he can adequately handle second base as well and add to his versatility. Good move […]
The NL Cy Young race has quite obviously become a two-man race between the Dodgers’ Clayton Kershaw and our very own Matt Harvey. And although we may all be a tad biased towards Mr. Harvey, it’s important as baseball fans to give Kershaw a fair argument. Here’s a brief breakdown of the two: Clayton Kershaw Kershaw is sporting a sickeningly low 1.91 ERA, and is on pace to finish with the first sub-2 ERA in […]
Of course, you must have known I’d have a Custom MMO GFX ready to go for this occasion… In case you missed the big news, the New York Mets have promoted Wilmer Flores from Triple-A Las Vegas. The timing couldn’t be more perfect for the Mets and even Flores who celebrates his 22nd birthday today. This was the correct move for the Mets as it keeps Daniel Murphy at second base and Eric Young in […]

While everybody in the sports world is focused on Alex Rodriguez today, the Mets universe just imploded with news that not one but TWO New York Mets will be suspended by MLB for 50 games. Look, we all knew that Cesar Puello was involved. It was just a matter of time, and I still contend to this day that since the Mets knew that he was involved they didn’t feel rushed to promote Puello. With […]
Alex Rodriguez has remained intent on fighting whatever suspension Major League Baseball decides for the disgraced Yankee third baseman, and should he choose to do so, Bud Selig is prepared to use one of his most extreme powers as commissioner; the right to “take action to preserve the integrity of the game” reports the Daily News. By invoking that rarely used power — embodied in Article XI, Section A1b of the game’s collective bargaining agreement […]
