Mets pitching prospect Rafael Montero has joined the Legacy Agency, according to Liz Mullen of Sports Business Journal. MLBTR writes that both Baseball America and Jonathan Mayo ranked Montero as the Mets’ No. 3 prospect. Original Post 11/24 – Montero Is Better than People Think Rafael Montero is good. This isn’t breaking news. But with how quickly his name comes up in trade talks makes me wonder if people truly understand how good he really is. Let’s be honest—unless you subscribe to MilbTv, […]
“We’ve got to find us somebody who can keep opposing pitchers from pitching around David Wright” It’s no secret what Terry Collins is hoping for this holiday season. A bright and shiny power hitter. The problem is that power hitters are in short supply in this year’s free agent market, with unlikely targets like Robinson Cano, Carlos Beltran and Mike Napoli representing the best of the best in the home run department. The Blue Jays, Rockies and Angels reportedly all had […]
How many times do we see solid prospects fizzle out due to injury? Experts say that it happens much more with pitchers than with any other position. Scouts try to project a pitcher’s long term health, but it always feels like a gamble with the draft regardless these days. Freak injuries, lack of conditioning, and pure bad luck can all turn a potential star into a career minor leaguer. I guess that’s I’m most happy […]
I swear that over the past two months that Noah Syndergaard is the most talked about pitching prospect in all of baseball. It’s amazing, but everytime I turn around someone somewhere is gushing over the Mets’ prized righthander. While reading Baseball Prospectus, I came across a recent article in which they pointed out that Thor’s overall numbers in Double-A Binghamton were not only better than what he posted while at Advanced-A St. Lucie, but they were much […]
“We’ve got to find us somebody who can keep opposing pitchers from pitching around David Wright“ It’s no secret what Terry Collins is hoping for this holiday season. An bright, new, shiny power hitter. The problem is that power hitters are in short supply in this year’s free agent market, with unlikely targets like Robinson Cano, Carlos Beltran and Mike Napoli representing the best of the best in last season’s home run department. However the […]
Mets GM Sandy Alderson was a guest of Mike Francesa on WFAN this afternoon and spent a considerable amount of time discussing two of the team’s best pitching prospects, Noah Syndergaard and Rafael Montero. Alderson was adamant that Syndergaard would not be traded under any circumstances. “None.” The plan for these two exciting power arms will be similar to the tracks taken by Zack Wheeler and Matt Harvey before them. Sandy said there was pretty […]
The Dodgers were apparently open to dealing any of Matt Kemp, Carl Crawford, and Andre Ethier — who are each under contract with some serious money attached to them. However, Jon Heyman wrote “…a Mets person suggested that trio isn’t at the forefront of their internal talks, at least at the moment.” However, Nick Carfardo of the Boston Globe thinks otherwise and wrote on Sunday that the Mets are in search of a big-name player and […]
Bronson Arroyo reports that the Giants, Phillies, and Twins have contacted his agents, but that no offers have been made. On Friday we reported that the Minnesota Twins are very interested in signing the free agent righthander and that they have already called and spoken with him according to a person with direct knowledge of the situation, but had yet to make a formal offer. There appears to be mutual interest from both sides in getting something […]
Imagine this exciting shortstop prospect on the Mets? Okay, get your tongues back in your mouth… Did you get a chance to read John Harper’s trade proposals in the Daily News this morning? Harper proposes a string of five hypothetical trades that have the Mets using their presumed pitching surplus to solidify other areas of the team. With baseball’s GM meetings set to begin this week in Orlando, now’s the time when many of the […]
