First off, I would like to take the time out to wish all the readers of this blog a Happy Labor Day. If you’re one of the few that has to work today (cops, firefighters, etc) - thank you for your service. The Legendary French Renaissance writer , Michel de Montaigne once said: “So it is with minds. Unless you keep them busy with some definite subject that will bridle and control them, they throw themselves in disorder hither […]
With Tuesday’s trade of Marlon Byrd and John Buck, the Mets got a very intriguing prospect from the Pirates, 19 year-old second base prospect Dilson Herrera. Herrera is a converted third baseman out of Cartagena, Colombia who is three years into his professional baseball career, and in his second year playing in the U.S., after spending time in the Venezuelan Summer League in 2011.

After two consecutive reaches in the first round, the Mets went bold with this year’s first-round pick Dominic Smith from Serra High School in California. Smith, 18, has a very high upside, and is regarded by many experts as the top hitter in the draft. With a solid glove, a great hit tool, and the possibility of Thanks to the new slotting system, Smith signed early, much like Gavin Cecchini did last year, allowing him to get some significant […]
Mets have officially signed Dominican outfielder Ricardo Cespedes. The Mets had already reached a verbal agreement with Cespedes during the International Free Agent signing period in July. But because he was only 15 years old, the rules of the new CBP prohibited the Mets from legally getting his name on a contract. Today, Cespedes turned 16 and the Mets made it all official. The young and very talented outfielder is reportedly getting an $800 thousand dollar […]

Updated Post Ike Davis went 1-for-3 with a long home run of Ian Kennedy last night as the Mets beat the Padres 5-2 at Petco Park. Davis also drew two more walks, prompting a sigh from Keith Hernandez in the first inning, “Uh… nice walk.” In Davis’ defense, he took four straight pitches out of the strike zone and it was obvious Kennedy wasn’t giving him anything to hit despite walking Marlon Byrd before him. Ironically, […]
