Cuban shortstop Erisbel Arruebarruena had his showcase this weekend in the Dominican Republic and Jonathan Mayo of MiLB.com spoke to one scout who was on hand and told him this: “He’s what you’ve been reading. He’s a very good defensive player. His glove is very close to the big leagues. The bat, you kind of think he’s one of those guys who’ll bat down in the order.” “He’ll be a quality defensive shortstop in the majors, but […]
Call me crazy, but I’d like to see Josh Satin hitting cleanup. I think he can hit and be very productive on the Major League level. Yes, he took several years to make it to the majors, but let’s also not forget that his path to the bigs was blocked by David Wright at third base and Ike Davis at first base. He is most certainly not a prototypical cleanup hitter and no one will […]
We are a few weeks away from the winter meetings and while the talk around the Mets have revolved around who we should be acquiring, it is equally important to make quick and effective decisions on the players that will better serve us with another team’s uniform. The player at the top of this list would be Jordany Valdespin, a potentially useful part but currently the outcast of the organization. There is no secret that […]
I had an interesting conversation with a someone whose profile tabbed him as a baseball expert. The guy was also a die-hard Met fan. I found him to be representative of most of the Met fans I know from Mets Twitter. I thought I’d kill some time late last night and chatted with many of my now 8,000+ followers. It all started with “I thought you said the Arroyo meeting with the Mets rumor was […]
If we look at the methodical approach of the Mets’ front office the past few winters, and every legitimate Mets fan has, there is no conceivable scenario that Nelson Cruz ends up a New York Met for four years and $75 million dollars. And we should be glad that’s the case. In fact, I don’t want any part of Cruz for less. Not simply because of PEDs, not simply because of his age, and not […]
After passing his physical, the Mets officially announced the signing of our new rightfielder Chris Young this afternoon. “Chris has had a distinguished career to this point and we think with regular playing time we think he can return to his all-star caliber performance,” GM Sandy Alderson said. “He’s a tremendous defensive outfielder, brings some power, the approach we’re looking for offensively and some speed on the bases.” Alderson said that Young could bat anywhere from 5-7 […]
Jhonny Peralta has signed a four-year, $52 million contract to play shortstop for the St. Louis Cardinals. Stephen Drew is still out there, but is surprisingly not getting much attention. (Injury history, anyone?) Ben Zobrist could be traded for, but Tampa Bay really loves him and would more than likely ask for a king’s ransom in exchange for Zobrist. But there is one veteran middle infielder out there who isn’t getting much attention, but he […]
The Mets VP of Scouting and Development spoke very highly of top outfield prospect Cesar Puello this week. While assessing the young slugger’s season, Paul DePodesta said watching him “was very exciting.” “Puello’s always been a guy who’s had as many tools as anyone, a true five-tool talent…He hits for average, hits for power, plays defense, runs, throws. He missed the last 50 games because of his connection to BioGenesis, but when he was on […]
I just read a solid all-encompassing article on the newest Mets Chris Young by ESPN’s Mark Simon. I’d encourage you all to read the full article here. Pros Young does two things as a hitter that would seem to be appealing to Mets management. One is that he hits for power, with four seasons of at least 20 home runs. And the kind of power that should survive Citi Field. Of his 12 home runs […]
