Gavin Cecchini suffered an ankle injury on July 3rd against the Staten Island Yankees, and has missed most of the month trying to get healthy. His journey back to the lineup appears to be over: Cyclones Gavin Cecchini will be in the lineup tomorrow. #Mets — Jessica Quiroli (@heelsonthefield) July 26, 2013 Cecchini was off to a slow start in Brooklyn as the starting shortstop for the Cyclones. Prior to his injury, he appeared in […]
Allan Dykstra was drafted in the first round of the 2008 MLB Draft by the San Diego Padres. He played his college ball at Wake Forest University, and the Demon Deacon was considered one of the top power threats in college baseball at the time. Some considered Dykstra to be a better prospect than Ike Davis coming out of college, mainly because of his power and his ability to get on base. He was a […]
Yesterday, Allan Dykstra of the B-Mets was nice enough to grant me a phone interview, and we discussed a variety of different topics regarding him, his team, the organization and even a couple of his teammates. Dykstra, now 26, is having one of the best seasons in the entire Mets organization batting .309 with 22 doubles, 18 home runs and 66 RBI in just 269 at-bats. But what really jumps out is his other-worldly .464 on-base […]
It’s almost unfair. To watch Pedro Feliciano work a pitchers mound against young Double-A batters is to watch a master craftsman applying his craft to a gaggle of apprentices. Feliciano defines what it means to pitch, not to throw a baseball. The former workhorse of the major league Mets, the 36-year old lefthanded relief specialist is working to prove he still has something left, something that could matter at the big league level. So far, […]
After being selected to the Triple-A All Star team for the Pacific Coast League, Wilmer Flores celebrated the occasion by going 5-for-6 with two doubles, two RBIs and a run scored. He’s now boasting a .320/.367/.520 batting line with 27 doubles, four triples and ten home runs in 325 at-bats while scoring 53 runs. Amazingly for a power hitter, Flores is only striking out at a 12% rate. The 21-year old is still playing second base everyday […]
A few weeks ago, with their second selection, the Mets drafted Andrew Church, a righthanded pitcher who was the 90th ranked high school prospect in the country. He’s got four pitches (fastball, curveball, slider, and change-up), a decent build and has dialed it up to 95 mph, but, good stuff aside, Church was by most scouts described a 3rd or 4th rounder. There are two possible reasons why the Mets may have taken Church as […]
The international signing period for MLB teams starts on July 2nd, which is this upcoming Tuesday. Once that day comes, teams will be able to sign 16-year-old international players they’ve been evaluating. Ben Badler of Baseball America breaks down the top 30 players today. He’s pinning the Mets as targeting catcher Ali Sanchez and shortstop Luis Carpio. Sanchez ranks as the 25th-best international prospect on this list, but Badler says he’s a solid second choice after Jose […]
The trade winds are blowing, which means the ideas are coming! We received the following message from Ramon. I recently read that Starlin Castro was available, along with Carlos Gonzalez. Do you see it possible for the Mets to acquire Castro? What do you think it would cost the Mets to acquire both him (considering we’d be buying low since he’s had a poor season)? What about CarGo as well? Starlin Castro is a very interesting situation. At 23 […]
DOC – A Memoir I finally got a chance to read Doc: A Memoir by Dwight Gooden and it took all of a day and a half last weekend. I really didn’t know what to expect when I got my copy, but I put aside any preconceptions and opened up my book on Saturday night… With a blank slate and an open mind I started off… By the end of the third chapter Doc had […]
