This year’s Kingsport team was, for anyone that didn’t follow them, one of the worst in the Appalachian League. This year’s club was one of the most top-heavy Kinsport teams we’ve seen recently, with very little in terms of depth. Kingsport pitching ranked last in the league in runs allowed per game (6.0), walks per nine (4.5), and by far the most wild pitches (86). The lineup wasn’t much better, finishing last in OPS and home runs.
The players on the Kingsport roster were outmactched this year. After the elimination of the Mets Gulf Coast League...
BEST OF MAXIM
According to multiply reports, the New York Mets announced the additions of righthanded pitchers Zack Wheeler, Hansel Robles, Gonzalez Germen and Greg Burke, lefthanded pitcher Darin Gorski and infielder Wilfredo Tovar to the 40-man roster.
The move was made to protect them from being eligible for the Rule 5 draft at the winter meetings. According to Adam Rubin of ESPN New York...
I like David Wright and want the Mets to sign him to an extension.
However, the question is: For how long?
The other day I wrote the Mets should get going and sign him and R.A. Dickey. What I should have said is they should put their best offer on the table, and if nothing else, be creative. My thoughts were the longer this drags on – especially after saying they wanted to get...
Josh Edgin is already with the Mets, Darin Gorski was just added to the 40-Man Roster, Greg Peavey is well on his way, and Zack Wheeler was also added to the 40-Man Roster.
The Mets announced last night that they added six players to their 40-man roster in order to protect them from the upcoming Rule-5 Draft in December. The Rule-5 Draft is used to keep teams from stockpiling too...
Jeff Wilpon responded to a report in the New York Post and told reporters that he is more optimistic now than a month ago that the Mets can get new deals done with David Wright and R.A. Dickey.
He is encouraged more and more as the process moves along because there’s been back and forth conversations, reports Marc Carig.
Wilpon also added that he could see a scenario where both...
If you believed everything that you’ve heard, you might be under the impression that we have the next Miguel Cabrera in our system. I don’t mean to burst your bubble, but I’m not signing up for that just yet. Does that mean I don’t believe in Wilmer Flores? Quite the opposite actually – I just don’t like putting lofty expectations on young players.
Flores is and has always...
Yesterday afternoon, it was announced by the AHRC New York City Foundation that New York Mets first baseman, Ike Davis — as well as New York Yankees pitcher C.C. Sabathia — will be honored at the 33rd Annual Thurman Munson Awards Dinner, at the Grand Hyatt Hotel in New York City on February 5th, 2013.

Characterizing himself as “more optimistic” than he was two months ago, Mets chief operating officer Jeff Wilpon said Tuesday that trading either David Wright or R.A. Dickey would be a last resort for the team. Speaking in Far Rockaway, Queens, where he and pitcher Matt Harvey served meals to Hurricane Sandy victims, Wilpon said his first priority is still to ink Wright and Dickey...
Just wanted to take the opportunity to share with you my most precious and valued card.
Happy Thanksgiving, from my team to yours…

The Mets announced the signings of two pitchers to minor league deals with invites to Spring Training, Scott Rice and Carlos Torres. Additionally, VP of amateur scouting Paul DePodesta tweeted that the Mets have signed outfielder Jamie Hoffman to a similar minor league deal.
Rice, 31, a 1999 first-round Draft pick of the Baltimore Orioles, has never made it to the majors but has...
I was reading MetsBlog’s take by Matt Cerrone on why he feels the Mets should jump on the recently released Chone Figgins.
Figgins was pretty terrible last season. I’m talking Jason Bay-level terrible. He was no better in 2011.
To be an upgrade for the Mets, he wouldn’t even have to be close to what he did 2009. I mean, his 2007, 2008 would be a significant upgrade, frankly...
