Most of you who read my words on here each week know that I have a healthy dose of skepticism and cynicism when it comes to these Mets. But while I’m not about to start sending “Ya gotta believe!” messages like one of my buddies does even when the Mets lose a bunch of games in a row, it’s hard not to believe there is something magical going on here. First of all, while we […]
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. This page will be updated throughout the day with every new pick, as well as my comments and background info. I would like to thank all of you who said nice things about my draft feature last week. Pick 89 (Rd. 3): Norman Blake Forsythe, Catcher R/R; Jr. […]
The New York Mets have sent beleaguered starter-turned-reliever-turned distraction Oliver Perez to the DL (knee tendinitis) to make room for starter Jonathon Niese. Adam Rubin reported yesterday that others players thought Ollie’s knee was “messed up.” The move ends the firestorm, both public and private, over what the Mets should do with their $36 million man. As discussed on this site, every single day, Perez has refused a minor league assignment for a week-and-a-half, which […]
The New York Mets have pulled the plug on Gary Matthews Jr. and will recall Catcher Omir Santos from AA Binghamton. Matthews Jr., or GMJ for short, came over from the Los Angeles Angels for Brian Stokes, shortly after Carlos Beltran hit the DL. GMJ has an unremarkable .190/.266/.241 line in 65 plate appearances, following a good Spring Training. Omir Santos has been horrific since moving to the minors after the signing of Rod Barajas forced […]
How do you handle a 7th overall pick? Do you take the best player available, or the safe pick? Do you take the high-upside high school player, or the more advanced college player? Pitcher or hitter? I’m actually kind of conflicted on this. I’ve looked at the draft for the last few days, thinking along each philosophy. But I won’t be calling in the pick on Monday, June 7. The New York Mets will. Who […]
Let me start out by saying that I thoroughly enjoyed myself at the game in Milwaukee on Sunday, in which the Mets salvaged a game and avoided a sweep to a team that previously had a horrible home record. We recently moved to Madison and a friend with Brewers season tickets invited my wife, 2-year old son and I to the game. In addition to the outcome being awesome, there were several other observations I […]
Yesterday we featured the Left-Handed Pitchers available in the 2010 MLB Draft, and Monday was the talented pool of Righties. Today, we’ll look at the outfielders. Bryce Brentz: Bryce is one of the best bats in this class. He will end up as a corner outfielder. He’s played some center, but he’ll likely be a permanent corner. But if you draft Brentz, you’re not looking at his defense. Brentz packs power. the junior from Middle […]
Thank you all for your kind responses to yesterday’s Righty preview. Today, we’ll look at the southpaws who could be possible considerations in the top seven. Drew Pomeranz: Pomeranz has had a fair degree of buzz on this site, the only question is whether he possibly falls to 7th. Pomeranz throws a low-to-mid 90’s fastball, a strong curve, and a low 80’s changeup. The junior from Ole Miss has a reputation for getting hitters to […]
Well, while we were distracted by the games on the field, the MLB draft creeps ever closer. The draft is one week from today, on Monday June 7. By virtue of the tragedy that was 2009, the Mets will be picking 7th. The Nationals, Pirates, Orioles, Royals, Indians, and Diamondbacks will be picking one through six. So for the week leading up to the draft, we’ll be running a feature all this week looking at […]
