On Thursday, MLB owners unanimously voted on funding that would expand instant replay in baseball. There are still plenty of details that need to be worked out before the final votes by the owners are cast, but pending player’s union approval, it looks like this is going to be a go. This is something that has been in the works since the summer. Touching on it briefly, it looks as if managers will be allowed […]
Zack Wheeler’s season should consist of about 28 more innings, an insider told ESPN New York, and whether that gets Wheeler through the remainder of the season remains to be seen. Adam Rubin adds that if the Mets operated with a five-man rotation, Wheeler’s turn would come up five times in September — meaning he would need to average less than six innings per outing to complete the season. Being more successful and going deeper […]
Update 8/29, 5:45 PM by Satish Ram The Mets announced earlier on Twitter that Victor Black was the PTBNL in the deal that saw the Mets send Marlon Byrd, John Buck, and cash to the Pirates. This was old news, however, as speculation ran rampant as soon as the trade was announced. The new news, coming via Adam Rubin, is that the Mets are working with a technicality that allows Black to take 72 hours to […]
According to Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports, the Mets and Pirates have agreed on Vic Black as the player to be named late in the trade that sent Marlon Byrd and John Buck to the Pirates. The Mets sent cash to Pittsburgh as well in exchange for Dilson Herrera,who we profiled yesterday, and Black, who will either join the team once he clears waivers tomorrow or after the season if he is claimed by another […]
At just 19-years old, shortstop Gavin Cecchini is now beginning to deliver on some of the potential some that led the Mets to select him with their top pick (12th overall) in the 2012 First Year Play Draft. Last night for the Brooklyn Cyclones, Cecchini went 1-for-4 with walk to extend his hitting streak to 14 straight games. During that span, the Louisiana native is batting .379/.403/.448 and overall for the season he’s at .289/.321/.344 […]
It was hockey jersey night at MCU Park in Coney Island Wednesday evening, and the Brooklyn Cyclones waited until well into the third period – also known as the bottom of the eighth inning – to wake up from a game-long drought and earn a 3-1 victory over the Hudson Valley Renegades. The win moves the Cyclones to 27-26 and just one game behind the McNamara Division-leading Aberdeen Ironbirds, who defeated the Staten Island Yankees […]
I don’t even want to write this up, honestly. The umpiring crew…or rather Chad Fairchild played a hand in really screwing the Mets over in this game, which was a tough loss to follow. Let’s start with the good — Wilmer Flores looked pretty damn good out there again. Flores scored in the second inning when John Buck and Omar Quintanilla strung together back-to-back RBI singles to drive home Flores and Ike Davis, respectively. That […]
Six seasons of work in the making, the New York Mets finally bore witness to the fruits of their labor with the major-league debut of longtime-top prospect Wilmer Flores. Despite the o-fer in last night’s thrilling 3-2 victory in the series opener against the Colorado Rockies, Flores’ first game marks yet another infusion of quality young talent into the mix at the major league level. The young infielder has been molded by the Mets organization […]
Oh, if only we didn’t have to limit Thor’s innings… The young phenom Noah Syndergaard took the mound for the Binghamton Mets today and surprise, surprise… he dominated. The coolest thing about it, however, was that D’Arnaud was behind the plate for the game — which created a weird glimpse into our potential future at Citi Field. Anyway, Syndergaard didn’t allow his first hit till the third inning and cruised through the entire game, allowing […]
