Who Is Newest Met Desmond Lindsay?

The New York Mets made their first selection of the MLB Draft late last night, selecting OF Desmond Lindsay in the back-half of the second round. Lindsay was the first player taken outside the MLB Top 200, so he may not be as well-known as other prospects on the board at No. 53. I wanted […]

MLB Draft: Four Players Mets Could Select Tonight

The Mets forfeited what would have been the 15th overall pick in the MLB Draft by signing Qualified free agent Michael Cuddyer to a two year, $21M deal. That’s okay with me.

Morning Grind: ASG Voting Shows Mets’ Lack of Star Power
