The 2013 season was one where we saw some New York Mets prospects rise to the occasion, and in some cases, turn our heads—and in other cases there were prospects that completely fell off the map. Predicting which prospects pan out is not an easy task, and there are times where we fall in love with prospects, then fall out of love with them, only to fall in love with them all over again as […]
If there is one thing the Mets have going for them it is the very exciting crop of young pitchers in their farm system. It seems that the strategy going forward is to stockpile as many promising young pitchers as they possibly can. The question is whether or not this is a smart move and there are a number of reasons why one would question whether this is a smart move. Nothing excites Mets fans […]
Bronson Arroyo hasn’t heard from the Reds front office, reports Mark Sheldon of MLB.com. The longtime Reds pitcher knew that his last start of 2013 vs. the Pirates — where he allowed five homers — was possibly his final start with the club. Nothing has changed since the season ended to have Arroyo thinking any differently. “I’ve heard not a word,” Arroyo said on Friday. “The sense I have, I don’t think they’ll make me […]
The New York Mets say they will spend on free agents this winter, in large part because they have little to offer up in the trade market. Really, their only chance to immediately improve is to write checks. What losing Matt Harvey for the 2014 season also does, is it greatly reduces the Mets’ inability to execute trades. In the wake of Harvey’s injury, general manager Sandy Alderson said he would be reluctant to deal Rafael Montero, Noah […]
J.J. Cooper of Baseball America hosted the Prospect Chat for the SAL Top Prospect list earlier this week. Here are the Mets related questions he responded to which contain some interesting insights on Dilson Herrera, Brandon Nimmo, Gabriel Ynoa and Kevin Plawecki. What did scouts have to say about Dilson Herrera? Dilson Herrera impressed a lot of observers. He’s improved his defense, although he’s still a little mechanical out there. He has good hand-eye coordination and […]
I hope you all enjoyed my coverage of the Brooklyn Cyclones this summer. I certainly did! It was great to meet and interact with many of the team’s recent draft picks to see what’s in store for the future. And of course, Rich Donnelly is an awesome baseball mind, so it was great to hear his perspective each night. Below is a Q&A between myself and the MMO staff discussing the Cyclones’ season. It may […]
As the 2013 season draws to a close for the New York Mets, what can be taken away from their fifth-straight losing season is the emergence of a number of young talents ranging from the pitching mound to the bullpen; from home plate, to centerfield. Met-Legend Edgardo Alfonzo was once an up-and-coming prospect himself, becoming a premiere bat and a defensive wonder during the Amazin’s turn-of-the-century stretch of October runs from 1999-2000. When I asked […]
I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t happy for Scott Kazmir last night. I’ve always been one of those old school fans that quickly forms a bond with our players and look at them as part of my extended Mets family. I hate to see the Mets lose, but last night wasn’t as painful. I sort of felt like a proud father watching Kazmir pitch the game of his life, even if it came […]
In a post last week, I discussed the incredible turnaround the Mets minor league affiliates have made this season with as many as four of them poised to win their divisions and head into postseason play. Yesterday, we posted about the historic season the Binghamton Mets are having as they set a new franchise record for most wins in a season with their 84th victory. It’s no secret that the Mets minor league system has gotten […]
