As of April 2, the only Mets’ minor league affiliate to announce an official roster has been the Triple-A Las Vegas 51s. There weren’t many surprises on the roster, and will be headlined by the organization’s top two prospects RHP Zack Wheeler and C Travis d’Arnaud. Here is their official roster: Here is the official roster of the 2013 Binghamton Mets: Pitchers Mark Cohoon John Church Mark Cohoon Adrian Rosario Erik Goeddel Darin Gorski Adam [...]
First off, I’d like to start this post by congratulating Collin Cowgill. The man had a great Spring Training and a smashing Mets debut. He deserves to be a part of the Mets outfield in 2013. I look forward to watching him. “It’s a special day. My first time being in an Opening Day lineup. A lot of jitters but it’s exciting. The fans were unbelievable. Beautiful day for that,” Cowgill said. “It was an [...]
Oh how I hate “I told you so” posts, but MMO’s John Delcos nailed it. Santana’s left shoulder is not getting better and it isn’t unfair to wonder if the prideful or stubborn lefthander – take your pick – may have committed career suicide on March 3, a quiet Sunday that turned into one of the Mets’ loudest days of spring training. Yep, that was one of the loudest days of the spring alright… Original [...]
Clayton – Jordany Valdespin, I see Cowgill getting a hot start then hitting a wall. Valdespin however I could see being the best run producer in the outfield in 2013. Adam – Collin Cowgill because he’s a better defender and has better plate discipline/selection at the plate. Valdespin will hit for more power and be a question mark on defense, while Cowgill will produce better on-base numbers to go along with decent defense. XtreemIcon [...]
I decided to shoot down to Port St. Lucie for a few days and take in a few minor league games and intra-squads. I wanted to catch some the new players I haven’t had a chance to see yet and also check out how some of our top prospects were progressing. Joe asked me to share some of my notes, quotes and observations because he wanted to give the readers here a glimpse of what’s [...]
Updated 3/17 The Mets announced that X-rays taken of Justin Turner’s ankle came back negative which means no fractures or breaks. Turner has a sprained right ankle, but seems in good spirits and could be back quicker than what was initially feared. He could end up missing 2-3 days barring any setbacks. If Wright isn’t ready by Opening Day, and Terry Collins doesn’t see that happening, Turner will get the majority of playing time and [...]
Last night made it official; the fans and the baseball world have granted David Wright one of the coolest and most prestigious nicknames a ballplayer could have, originating right here on MMO: Captain America. Team USA was on the brink of elimination in the first round of the World Baseball Classic, however with one slam of the bat — a grand slam at that — immediately prompted this tweet from Joe D. Hell Yeah!!! David Wright [...]
It’s not exactly the variety of a film festival when watching the Mets in spring training. It’s the Nationals, Braves, Marlins and Cardinals on a rotating basis. For the Mets in Port St. Lucie, it’s like watching the same episodes of Seinfeld over and over. After awhile, you know how “The Contest’’ will end. For a young guy like Matt Harvey working on a pitch, those teams don’t have to worry about the film as they can see him first [...]
Bobby Parnell has been something of a wildcard for the Amazin’s each of the past few seasons. He has been bounced all around the pitching staff, however in 2012 seems to have found himself a home in the late innings of New York Mets baseball games. The question remains however, which inning does the young fireballer belong? He hasn’t exactly found success as a closer, but has proven to be a very effective set-up man. [...]
