Greetings and welcome to Day 2 of the MLB Draft. This post will be updated throughout the day with the New York Mets draft picks from Round 2 to 30, as well as a collection of links and video for each of the prospects. 71. Cory Mazzoni, RHP from NC State. Mazzoni recorded a 137:29 K:BB ratio in 114.2 IP this season at NC State. According to Jim Callis, “Up to 97, hard breaker.” Most [...]
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 [...]
Even with Johan Santana on the disabled list to start the season, there was still was no room on the Mets’ Opening Day roster for Dillon Gee. However, after Gee had made just two starts in the minors, it was clear that there were issues with the Mets starting rotation. The team made the decision to call him up on April 17th and it is looking like a great move. Gee’s success may not come [...]
Let’s all be honest, we knew what this team was before the season even started. Not losing all faith yet, but the Mets may in fact be sellers at the deadline. Recently I was asked if the Mets would be sellers or buyers at the deadline, to which I responded buyers. However that was the optimistic side of me talking. Or maybe it was Sandy repeatedly saying comments like “We’re playing for 2011″. Either way [...]
I am going to start this article off by adding the disclaimer that we are still only five games into the season. However, the Mets have gotten off to a quick 3-2 start. The team has looked good with the exception of Mike Pelfrey. It is already obvious that this is a different Mets team than the one we saw last year. Last year’s incarnation of the team would have just laid down and rolled [...]
Mets pitching prospect Matt Harvey has been the hottest topic among Mets fans/writers over the past few days. Harvey, who was drafted seventh-overall in last season’s draft, will likely begin this season in Single-A Port St. Lucie. He has the stature of a starting pitcher (6-feet, 4-inches tall and weighs 225 pounds) and might have the repertoire, too. Harvey can throw a high-90s fastball, but also mixes in off-speed pitches including a slider, sinker and curve [...]

T’was the night before Spring Training and all through the league, Critics were jeering at Freddy’s financial fatigue. But the Mets plan some baseball to see, For an interesting week in Port St. Lucie. Jose Reyes enters his contract year, Looking for the spark once gave pitchers fear. 7-Train can’t wait to hit the track, As he plays for a likely 9-figure pact. Young hotshot Ike is looking to show more, Than his 19 Homers [...]
Frank Edwin ‘Tug’ McGraw was a relief pitcher for the New York Mets for 9 seasons. Over that time he compiled 85 saves with a 3.17 ERA. But he is best remembered for a phrase. In 1973, as the Mets were treading water in the NLE basement at the end of August, McGraw coined the slogan ‘Ya Gotta Believe.’ Fox ‘Spooky’ Mulder was a fictitious character played by David Duchovny on ‘The X-Files.’ Mulder firmly [...]
Remember 1986? Wasn’t it great? We had Gary and Keith, Doc and Darryl, Lenny and Wally, Mookie and Frank. Frank???? Frank who? Remember the miracle of 1969? What an amazin’ year? Tom and Jerry, Cleon and Agee, Swoboda and Shamsky, Buddy and Johnny. Johnny??? Who the hell was Johnny? The Frank I’m referring to was Mets GM Frank Cashen. The Johnny from 69 was GM Johnny Murphy. Great baseball memories, the common history that we [...]
This is a bittersweet moment for me, as this is my last column on MetsMerized, at least as it stands now. I’m moving on to pursue another opportunity that includes covering the Mets, so I’ll still be involved in the scene. But I wanted to take this opportunity to thank Joe, the other staff writers and all of you readers who made the last 15 months or so an absolute pleasure for me. I know [...]
