Last week, the Mets the added left-hander Steven Matz and right-handers Jeff Walters, Jacob deGrom and Erik Goeddel to the 40 Man Roster, protecting those players from being selected in next month’s Rule 5 Draft. Since then, Goeddel has spawned more than a dozen emails to MMO as Mets fans were curious to know more about this talented pitching prospect who the Mets feared would be swiped up in a heartbeat if left unprotected. Erik […]
The terms “discipline at the plate” and “patience at the plate” come up quite often when discussing hitters’ approaches at the plate—especially if you are a Mets fan. This notion that the organization is teaching their hitters to be more patient is a questionable one to say the least. The two terms sound like they mean the same thing, but actually are quite different. Patience refers to working a pitcher, seeing all his pitches, and […]

Former St. Lucie right-hander Hansel Robles recently cleared waivers and was subsequently removed from the Mets 40-man roster according to ESPN’s Adam Rubin. With the drop the Mets roster moves to 39 players, making room until Chris Young passes physicals and is added sometime next week. Robles pitched two games for the Gulf Coast Mets before begin promoted to St. Lucie in 2013. He went on to go 5-4 with a 3.72 ERA in 16 appearances in High-A ball […]
Is it me or is time flying this offseason? I can’t believe that the deadline to protect players from the Rule 5 Draft is already upon us. Tomorrow night at 11:59 PM EST is the deadline for adding players to the 40 Man Roster. I think the Mets are in great shape heading into decision day. With four spots currently open, that’s just enough to protect Steven Matz, Jeff Walters and Jacob deGrom with room […]
Until the Mets add a legitimate piece to their roster this offseason, skepticism will surround general manager Sandy Alderson’s vow to spend writes Mike Puma of the New York Post. Scott Boras recently summed up the Mets over Alderson’s three-year tenure: “The thing with the Mets is they’re interested in everybody and interested in nobody.” Alderson is on the clock to make at least a ripple, if not a splash, this winter. Alderson cited “payroll concentration” […]
A quick update from Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports, who today wrote: “Don’t be surprised if the Mets also trade second baseman Daniel Murphy, one of their best hitters. Murphy is drawing interest from clubs that envision him at second, third or as a super-utility type, and while his departure would hurt the Mets short-term, he is unlikely to still be with the club by the time it contends again.” Yesterday, Adam Rubin of ESPN New […]
Adam Rubin reported earlier today that the Mets will not add more than a few prospects to the 40-man roster. There are already two prospects on the 40-man roster, including Juan Centeno and Matt den Dekker. That would ultimately leave four roster spots open on the 40-man. A few players that could be exposed to the Rule 5 Draft are Steven Matz, Cory Vaughn, Greg Peavey, Jacob deGrom, and Jeff Walters. This is interesting as it comes on the […]
