Mets Merized Online:
Updated May 6, 2013
Updating Adam Rubin’s report this past weekend, which you can read about below, Mets GM Sandy Alderson spoke to the Daily News and said the following:
“It’s no secret Jordany has had a slightly different approach to some things, there is a certain level of tolerance that we have. I hope he doesn’t exceed that level.”
As I’ve been alluding to for months now, my conspiracy theories and pursuit of this so-called “non-story” wages on.
Alderson is hoping that Valdespin continues to mature, but clearly he is as close to “persona non grata” as you can get despite his enormous potential and upside.
“I am hoping he will continue to mature,” Alderson said. “He has, I think, made progress. Hope he continues to do so on that front.”
I just call them the way I see them.
I’m not a conspiracy theorist, just someone who is very good at reading between the lines.
So let’s talk about this non-story some more, shall we?
Well actually, now it is a story… Which negates about t

Ever since Lucas Duda burst into our consciousness in 2010, nobody has been satisfied with his plate approach. Too many strikeouts and not enough walks, I frequently wrote. He gives away too many at-bats. He tries to pull too much and doesn’t use the entire field.
All valid in the early Duda critique.
DUDA: Has the right approach (AP).
Now, unbelievably, he’s become too selective...
“Lucas Duda is the preeminent example of the Mets’ organizational offensive philosophy of patience and power,” writes Jorge Castillo of the Star-Ledger.
The left fielder’s .417 on-base percentage was 11th in the majors entering play Saturday and his .538 slugging percentage ranked in the top 30.
But his remarkable selectivity could also be detrimental on a team that relies...
Last Night’s Quick Scores
Las Vegas had their game suspended due to rain.
Binghamton dropped to Trenton, 5-0.
St. Lucie topped Daytona, 6-2.
Savannah dropped two games to Hickory, 4-3 and 5-3.
Welcome back T.J. Rivera. We haven’t mentioned Rivera in the Minors Report for a couple of weeks and he was tired of being ignored, so he went out and got five...
Frank Francisco pitched 1.0 scoreless inning last night for St. Lucie of the Florida State League, allowing just one single. Francisco has tossed 4.0 scoreless innings in four rehab outings and is getting closer to returning to the Mets.
Terry Collins said he would first like to see how Francisco responds after back to back appearances on Sunday and Monday before the team makes...
Binghamton 6, Harrisburg 1
The Binghamton Mets launched a season-high three home runs and struck out a season-high fifteen Harrisburg Senators in a 6-1 victory at Metro Bank Park on Sunday afternoon. Binghamton used a ten-hit attack to secure their third series win of the season.
B-Met third baseman Josh Rodriguez set the tone early. After Danny Muno worked out his team-leading 21st...
Matt Harvey, who pitches for the Mets, was very dialed in on Tuesday night as his Mets took on the Chicago White Sox. The 24-year-old flamethrower was so dialed in that he didn’t even realize that his nose was bleeding. The bloody nose definitely didn’t bother Harvey as he pitched a perfect first inning and had a strikeout.

The New York Mets have had great success with Matt Harvey since he came up last year. He has really kicked it into high gear to start this season and has become a phenom. Zack Wheeler is in AAA Las Vegas struggling but most people rate him higher then they do Harvey. Harvey also didn’t have great numbers in AAA before he got promoted and look how that turned out. I think...
Famed right fielder Darryl Strawberry debuted as a professional with the New York Mets 30 years ago today on May 6, 1983. The 21-year-old Strawberry, taken by New York out of Crenshaw High School in Los Angeles with the first overall pick in the 1980 MLB Draft, recorded his first hit two days later on May 8. Throughout the 1980s and early 1990s, the 6-foot-6, 200 pound Strawberry...
This game had a definite carnival atmosphere feel to it as the Atlanta Braves beat the Mets by the score of 9-4 to split the rain-shortened two-game series at Turner Field.
What a comedy of errors for the Mets even though the box score would suggest a clean game. I hate sad stories and bad endings so this will be short and sweet bitter.
What was up with Duda on that fly ball? Dude...
