Updated Post 1:44 PM MLB Trade Rumors just posted something that would add to the debate on Choo as a potential acquisition for the Mets in 2014. I also updated the original post to indicate that Choo’s best position is right-field. Of course, as with most free agents, Choo’s next contract will cover post-prime years, perhaps age 31-35. With Boras doing the negotiating, we can’t rule out a sixth year or a salary in the […]
Despite a major league pedigree and respect for his tools (Baseball America Top 15 organizational prospect three years running), Binghamton Mets outfielder Cory Vaughn had yet to put all his tools together. His power and speed didn’t show up until 2012, but he hit .243. In St. Lucie in 2011, Vaughn hit .286 before his promotion, but only four home runs. After the promotion, he more than doubled his home run total, but the batting average dipped to .219. […]
Left field has always been used as a kind of defensive dumping ground for many teams trying to find a way to get a bat in the lineup. Not requiring the arm strength considered de rigueur for Right, and less daunting in the presence of a fleet centerfielder, it is often a place for players whose offense demands playing time, but are not “natural” outfielders and have been blocked from a preferred position by a […]

Are the Mets in desperate times now? With how our offense has failed to click lately, I think so. I was under the impression that we had a few guys that could actually play the outfield for us – and then we went out and signed Rick Ankiel. I remember the player Ankiel was after he switched positions from pitching to play the outfield, so there is hope for production. But, if we needed a player with […]
What a beauty of a cover and an instant Mets collectible for all you die-hards out there. Get it signed, get it framed, I know I will. MattHharvey has gone from New York sensation to a National sensation in less than a half season worth of starts. SI.com’s Tom Verducci, calls Harvey: “The most fascinating young power arm in baseball.” “In an era dominated by pitchers, Matt Harvey has the ferocity of stuff and of […]
Binghamton 9, Harrisburg 3 An ominous gray sky and a persistent drizzle dampened my spirits as I started an excursion to Binghamton’s NYSEG Stadium for the second consecutive day. Saturday’s sojourn was for naught, nearly four hours driving in the car and no baseball. The prospects of a double washout loomed. Halfway to Binghamton, the clouds almost evaporated in the sky giving way to sunshine, blue skies and baseball. I couldn’t help but think that […]
The draft is slowly creeping up on us, and is now less than a month away. It’s do or die time for scouts, and for some draft hopefuls, coming down to the wire to show that they deserve a shot to call baseball their profession. On June 6, everyone is expecting the Houston Astros to take Stanford Pitcher, Mark Appel, with the first pick in the draft. After that, it’s really anyone’s guess. The Mets […]
