As the possibility of Michael Bourn landing in Queens seems more and more like a reality, there are a faction of fans who feel Bourn wouldn’t be such a necessity, had the Mets simply resigned Jose Reyes. On the surface, they’re correct, however as is the case with everything New York Mets, there is always more to it. Its easy to compare the two players. Both center their games around speed, are similar in age, […]
Player Name: Philip Evans Bats: R Throws: R Height: 5’10″ Weight: 185 lb. Position: Shortstop Age: 20 (turns 21 in September) MMO Top Prospect Ranking: 14 ETA: 2015 Background: Here’s what MMO had to say about Evans in the recent top 25 prospect feature: The 2011 15th round pick who received a significant over-slot $660K bonus has been good, but not what has been expected overall. Evans has exclusively played shortstop though he profiles more as a […]
Player Name: Juan Lagares Bats: R Throws: R Height: 6’1” Weight: 175 lb. Position: Outfield Age: 23 (turns 24 in March) MMO Top Prospect Ranking: 21 ETA: 2014/2015 Over the next couple of weeks, we will be taking an in-depth look at the prospects that will be joining the Mets in spring training as members of the 40-man roster. We are starting it off with Juan Lagares. Background: Lagares is what most would consider an under the […]
With less than thirty days before pitchers and catchers report to Port St. Lucie for Spring Training there is little excitement for the upcoming season. Bad baseball may be better than no baseball, but 2013 appears to be another year of tempered expectations for most Mets fans. As a result, ticket sales and television ratings will likely take yet another hit, but should they? I’m not about to tell you how to spend your hard […]
Question: How many free-agent pitchers are 26 years-old, have had two seasons at the major league level with sub 3.00 ERA, and were named to an All-Star game? Answer: Jair Jurrjens There has been little to no talk about Jurrjens hooking on with any teams this offseason. The question is why? Granted, he is coming off an abysmal year that saw him sent down to the farm to work out his issues at one point. But […]
We have heard that the Mets are going through a complete overhaul, rebuilding the organization from the ground up. Until the trade that sent RA Dickey to the Blue Jays for prominent prospects Travis d’Arnaud and Noah Syndergaard, it sure didn’t look like a team that was rebuilding. The Dickey trade was the first action taken by general manager Sandy Alderson that signaled that the team may be undergoing a rebuilding phase. Unfortunately, due to circumstances, […]
I would never get through the endless cold dark winters if it wasn’t for old Mets videos and Ken Burns. Last night I watched Shea Goodbye: 45 Years of Amazin’. A great documentary, it details the history of the Mets at Shea. As I watched Ray Knight round third with his hands on his head after Mookie hit a slow roller, I saw something I had forgotten about: The patch on the uniforms. 1986 was our […]
Patience is a virtue. That certainly applies to the patience of Mets GM, Sandy Alderson, who once again proved his critics wrong this weekend when he secured a windfall of popular prospects from the Toronto Blue Jays in exchange for reigning Cy Young Award winner, RA Dickey, and his personal catchers, Josh Thole and Mike Nickeas. In doing so, Alderson waited out both the starting pitching market and the limits of the fan base’s collective […]
You can mark it on your calendar. December 11th, 2012 is the day Sandy Alderson officially abused the trust of Mets fans for the final time. Yes, I’m well aware that there are plenty of you out there that saw this coming. I’ve heard from many of you, previously convinced that the team’s front office had hidden agendas. However, the fact remains that Alderson’s on-air confirmation, at the team’s Christmas party no less, that there […]
