It’s time to give up on Reese Havens

Before the 2013 season, Mets second base prospect Reese Havens‘ stock was at an all time low. Entering the season at 26 years old, he was no longer viewed as a legitimate prospect and realistically 2013 was make-or-break for him. There were still reasons to not give up on the offense-oriented second basemen, though. Specifically, and despite his age, his power, patience, and contact...

Is Jose Medina the Mets’ best lefty starter in the minors?

It is little secret that the current Mets braintrust loves their lefty relievers. However, there’s not much in the organization in terms of lefty starters. A quick scan of the system’s four full-season leagues shows 15 lefty relievers and only four starters. It’s not much better in the short-season leagues, with only two lefty starters and one is already 24, so he’s unlikely...

How 2015 Free Agent Market Influences Mets’ 2014 Offseason Strategy

The two-year plan The past two seasons, the Mets have finished 74-88. Over that time, they’ve dumped all their albatross contracts (except Bobby Bonilla…) and resolved the Bernie Madoff lawsuit, such that management finally appears capable of investing in the team. Whether they will or not remains to be seen, but Sandy Alderson has said the team has about $30 million to spend...

Changes, Changes: My Offseason Plan For The New York Mets

The Mets have a few glaring needs going into this offseason. Despite the numerous promising young players rising through the minor leagues and onto the 40-man roster, there are a few positions that will need to be filled for the team to be competitive in 2014 and beyond. The foundation seems to be there, with an emphasis on young pitching. Third base is locked up, catcher and center...

The 2013 New York Mets All-Prospect Team

The 2013 season was one where we saw some New York Mets prospects rise to the occasion, and in some cases, turn our heads—and in other cases there were prospects that completely fell off the map. Predicting which prospects pan out is not an easy task, and there are times where we fall in love with prospects, then fall out of love with them, only to fall in love with them all over...

1964: Saluting the New York Mets team of 50 years ago

The 1964 Mets went 53-109.  Casey Stengel managed the team.  That team had a little bit of talent: Ron Hunt was the starting second baseman, Ed Kranepool was the starting first baseman, and Jim Hickman was the center fielder.  Charley Smith hit 20 HRs as a third baseman.  Joe Christopher hit for a .300 BA as their right fielder. Jack Fisher and Tracy Stallard each one...

How the Tim Lincecum signing may impact the Mets’ offseason

After sitting out the high dollar free agent market the past few years, fans are foaming at the mouth imagining the Mets once again being big players for the marquee names. We’re going to trade for Troy Tulowitzki and Matt Kemp, sign Shin-Soo Choo and Bronson Arroyo, and if he’ll go on a short deal, we’ll stoop to get Tim Lincecum, too. Woops, scratch that last one ...

Is Chicago Cubs’ Prospect Javier Baez A Potential Trade Target For The Mets?

Javier Baez‘s name has been getting kicked around the New York Mets’ fan base as a potential trade target for the Mets this winter, but there is virtually no chance this is going to happen. There is no way the Cubs would part ways with their prized prospect, but if they did, we would be talking about giving up Noah Syndergaard and maybe even Travis d’Arnaud in exchange for...

The New York Mets All Prospect Team For 2013

Does a “Mets Way” Exist?

Wednesday night marked the beginning of the World Series and the two teams which have been praised all postseason long for having outstanding systems and team building began to battle one another for the championship. While the manner in which these League Champs were built is certainly much more complicated than the way the mass media is letting on, here are the basic structures...

Josh Johnson or Scott Kazmir? Who’s The Better Option For The Mets?

The market for starting pitching is noticeably thin and old. Teams have made it a top priority to lock up their young pitching talent and as a result the only familiar names on the market under the age of 30 are Phil Hughes and John Lannan. The Mets are in the advantageous position to retain the majority of their pitching staff that finished fifth in the league in quality starts...
