Mets Vice President of Player Development and Scouting Paul DePodesta fielded questions for about an hour on Twitter yesterday. He did a nice job of tackling the many concerns and inquiries fans had about the most recent draft, many of the team’s prospects and where they fit into the plan, and also discussed his strategy and the organizations philosophy on developing players and their selection process. I’m going to summarize some of the things that […]
The Mets offense at the big league level has been pathetic recently. Actually, pathetic is probably the nice way to put it. Their inability to do anything at the plate was once again highlighted in last night’s affair, as Dillon Gee drove in the only run of the game for New York in their heartbreaking 2-1 loss to the Atlanta Braves. With that being said, the lineup is in dire need of a boost. Over […]
Las Vegas 11, Colorado Springs 5 How does one judge Rafael Montero‘s second start in AAA this season? Well, it was his first since his recent non-temporary call-up, and he was betrayed by his defense out there on Saturday night. He pitched into the sixth inning, allowing seven hits and no walks, while striking out seven. All five runs were charged to him — but only one of them was earned. He pitched more than good […]
Nothing went right for Valdespin and the Mets against the Cubs on Saturday. The Mets dropped their second straight against the Cubs in a 5-2 loss at Citi Field on Saturday. Cubs starter Scott Feldman had the Mets number and held them to just one run and retired the last 12 batters he faced in a row. Jon Niese started for the Mets and pitched well enough to win, but clearly didn’t bring his “A” […]
Sandy Alderson was a guest of Mike Francesa on WFAN on Monday afternoon and had a lot to say on a variety of topics which I summarized for you below. Before that, check out what John Harper of the Daily News had to say about Sandy’s latest version of “Cry Me A River”. It was hard to tell if Sandy Alderson was baring his soul or throwing himself at the mercy of Mets fans during his WFAN […]
Updated by Satish Ram at 7:45 PM: Adam Rubin is reporting that first baseman Josh Satin, center fielder Collin Cowgill and lefthanded reliever Josh Edgin will be promoted from Triple-A Las Vegas to replace Ike Davis, Mike Baxter and Robert Carson who were all optioned to Triple-A after today’s 8-4 loss to the Marlins. Satin will be added to the 40-man roster to fill the empty spot left when Rick Ankiel was released yesterday. That means within the last 24 hours, […]
Last Night’s Quick Scores Las Vegas took down Reno, 7-0. Binghamton was defeated by New Hampshire, 8-7. St. Lucie had their game rained out. Savannah defeated Kannapolis, 6-2. Prospect Pipeline Welcome to June, everybody! One man who really wanted it to stay May forever was Jack Leathersich, who had an absolutely amazing month statistically. I’m sure it did wonders for his confidence, and Joe D. keeps comparing him to Billy Wagner, which is looking more […]
Wilmer Flores got off to a slow start in 2013. The 21 year-old prospect found himself in the shadow of top prospects Travis d’Arnaud and Zack Wheeler when he arrived in Las Vegas. But now we find ourselves almost two months into the season, and Flores seems to be hitting his stride offensively. Flores is quietly putting up solid numbers this season, batting .292/.335/.470 with 26 extra-base hits in 202 at-bats. There have been some […]
Las Vegas 7, Reno 1 Josh Satin caught wind of Ike Davis showing signs of life at the plate and decided that he needed to step it up a notch – so he ripped four hits and drove in four runs in this 7-1 Las Vegas victory. On the pitching end of the victory was Carlos Torres, who has honestly turned it up a notch ever since I called him out in the beginning of […]
