Wally Backman will remain with the Mets organization according to what two sources told Andy Martino of the Daily News. With the Mets offering Terry Collins a contract extension, it became apparent that Backman would not be offered the job. At first it was not sure that he would return to the organization, but there was speculation that he might. Players that I have spoken with have held Backman in high regard and that he is a great […]
The Mets signed Darrell Ceciliani in the 4th round of the 2009 MLB June Amateur Draft from Columbia Basin College in Pasco, WA. In his freshman year in college, prior to the draft, he hit .374 and helped lead the team to 44 wins and an appearance in the 2009 NWAAC Championship series. He was sent to Kingsport and in 42 games, he batted .234/.313/.310 with 29 runs, six doubles, and two home runs in 158 at bats. […]
The Washington Nationals officially named Matt Williams as the team’s manager on Thursday, agreeing to terms on a multi-year contract with the five-time All-Star and former Arizona Diamondbacks coach. “I am thrilled to welcome Matt to our organization and am confident he is the best choice to lead the Nationals at this time,” general manager Mike Rizzo said. “He is exceptionally prepared for the task.

With news floating around that the Mets may indeed punt again in 2014, and with Matt Harvey sidelined the entire year; maybe it’s time to start looking at what the New York Mets may look like in 2015. I know it’s a depressing thought, and I’m sorry for bringing it up. But that doesn’t mean we can’t have some fun with this. The reason why 2015 will actually make for an interesting season is because […]
It was a slow week in the world of the Mets minor league system.

Take this as you will — but Adam Rubin is reporting that Wally Backman will likely be staying with the Mets organization for 2014. According to Rubin, no teams have asked the Mets for permission to speak to Wally Backman for a managerial vacancy — so the Mets believe he will stay with them in 2014. The Mets have retained their entire staff from 2013, leaving no room for Backman to be promoted. This means […]
The Mets have not been asked by any other organization for permission to speak with Wally Backman about a managerial vacancy. So team officials still expect Backman to return as Triple-A Las Vegas manager in 2014, an insider told Adam Rubin of ESPN New York. The source could not yet guarantee Backman’s return, noting it still would be possible that a newly hired manager elsewhere might want Backman on the major league staff as a […]
As one of Terry Collins’ most ardent supporters, I’m having a slight case of the “hindsight blues” today. Let me first start by saying, I think Terry Collins is a good manager for this team. You’ve heard it said before, and you’ll likely hear it again – “Baseball Managers don’t matter all that much.” It’s a statement spoken by fans who subscribe to a more sabermetric philosophy than an old school way of thinking. To […]
Infamy: The state of being well known for some bad quality or deed. I have seen a lot of Mets baseball in my 41 years on this planet. I have seen the Mets win one World Series while losing in their other two appearances to the A’s and Yankees. I’ve also seen them appear in a handful of playoff appearances where they just fell a little short… Yeah I’m, looking at you ’88 and ’99 and ’06!!! […]
