Nick asks… Is Juan Lagares an everyday player? He seems more like a Endy Chavez defensive substitute type to me, but I keep hearing that he has a hold on the everyday center field job. Do you think his bat will develop or will we see the same offensive production we saw last season? Any idea what kind of numbers we should look forward to? Teddy replies… I don’t think Lagares is a defensive substitute […]
With the deadline for the 40 man roster decisions looming, the Mets have many difficult decisions to make. One player the Mets will have to decide to protect is outfielder Cory Vaughn. Vaughn is a powerful right handed slugger who has been inconsistent throughout his minor league career. Despite his power potential, I believe Mets should not protect him on the 40 man roster. Vaughn has an impressive combination of power and speed, but he […]
Red Sox shortstop Stephen Drew is not doing much for his free agent value with his shockingly bad performance this post season as beat writer Alex Speier points out. Drew has stepped to the plate 43 times this postseason — one of 673 players in playoff history with 40 or more plate appearances in a single postseason. After an 0-for-3 night in World Series Game 2 on Thursday, he’s gone 4-for-42 with one walk and 15 […]
Wednesday night marked the beginning of the World Series and the two teams which have been praised all postseason long for having outstanding systems and team building began to battle one another for the championship. While the manner in which these League Champs were built is certainly much more complicated than the way the mass media is letting on, here are the basic structures of Boston and St. Louis in a nutshell. Boston added multiple […]
For all my fellow Mets fans, opinions have been flying fast in the blogosphere, twitterverse, and any other media I may have forgotten to mention. And all this is occurring before the World Series has even started! No Free Agents can change teams right now, no player has been tendered, yet you would think from some of us Met die-hards that the offseason is already a failure. Lets all take a deep breath, I mean, […]
When signing a young player from an international market, you never really know what you will get. They haven’t gotten a lot of fanfare like most of the players that come straight from the draft out of college and high school. Most fans do not hear much about international ballplayers until years later if they are lucky to establish themselves as legit prospects as they advance through the minor league system. So understanding the journey […]
Quantum: The smallest amount of a physical quantity that can exist independently. Solace: Comfort in sorrow, misfortune, or distress; consolation. After the Chicago White Sox inked Cuban sensation Jose Dariel Abreu to a six-year, $68 million dollar deal – a fair price for one who is expected to produce like Frank Thomas – my inbox began getting flooded with emails. Okay it wasn’t really a flood, just 11 emails, but still… All 11 of them pretty much […]
Updated 10/17 9:00 PM Free agent Cuban slugger Jose Dariel Abreu has agreed to a deal with the Chicago White Sox, according to Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports. Rosenthal says the deal is for six years and $68 million, shattering the four-year, $36MM contract signed by Yoenis Cespedes and the seven-year, $42MM pact signed by Yasiel Puig. As I stated earlier, Abreu makes perfect sense for the White Sox, especially with the expected retirement of Paul Konerko. If he […]
I was scanning through Josh Norris’ Baseball America chat on the Eastern League prospects — and it took me all of five seconds to find something to write about. Thanks for the chat, Josh. What did evaluators have to say about Cesar Puello‘s season, and did he end up close to making your list? Josh Norris: He didn’t end up close to making the list, and quite frankly, a great deal of it had to do with […]
