The New York Mets and the Savannah Sand Gnats today jointly announced they have renewed their Player Development Contract for two more years. The renewal will keep Savannah as a Mets’ affiliate through the 2014 season.
During the Mets affiliation, the Sand Gnats have enjoyed some of their most successful seasons in franchise history. The Sand Gnats were the South Atlantic League First Half Champions in back-to-back seasons (2010 and 2011). The 2012 team roster boasted a deep roster of starting pitching and position players, with three players representing Savannah at the South Atlantic League All-Star game in June.
In addition, former Sand Gnats have already made a splash in the major leagues. This season, Collin McHugh and Josh Edgin became the latest former Sand Gnats to make their major league debut for the Mets. Other notable former Sand Gnats to come from the Mets-Sand Gnats partnership include Josh Thole, Robert Carson and Jeurys Familia. Johan Santana also made a start for...

Lets have some fun today.
After reading something Jim Callis said in his Prospect Chat on Baseball America yesterday, I was inspired to bring out my crystal ball and predict when we’ll see some of the Mets top prospect’s. But first take a look at this:
Wow, that’s a pretty optimistic view, and one that could certainly be construed as rushing one’s number one prospect...

Mets 2009 top draft pick Steve Matz has agreed to come onto our...
Stop me if you’ve heard this one before: The Mets starter was outstanding, the bullpen was strong and the offense didn’t do a thing.
The Mets lost their sixth straight game on Wednesday night, dropping the series finale with the Washington Nationals, 2-0, and were swept for the second straight series. They’re now 13 games under .500 for the first time this season and the offense...
The Mets have lost five straight and dropped seven of their last eight games.
The club has lost a season-high six games in a row for the third time this season and is 3-7 in its last 10 games. They are at a season high of 12 games under .500 for the season and in danger of being swept on this homestand if they don’t salvage tonight’s game.
Since the All Star Break, the...
Retired New York Mets star (and current Mets broadcaster) Keith Hernandez is considering shaving off his trademark mustache, which in 2007 was named the top sports mustache of all-time (by the American Mustache Institute - apparently there is such a thing).
The thought of Hernandez shaving his famous mustache has thrown New Yorkers into a tizzy, which is best reflected in a...

It hard to think that after the stunning exit from the 2006 NLCS, the consecutive collapses that followed, the mediocre baseball since, and the gut check that was the departure of Jose Reyes, that things could actually get worse for our beloved Mets. With the team poised to close out its worst campaign in at least four years, the organization isn’t exactly entering the offseason...

If you haven’t heard, Keith Hernandez, a New York Mets legend-turned respected and admired analyst on team telecasts, recently said he has been considering shaving off his trademark mustache, saying that he just might show up for the final game of the season with what would be a disconcerting absence of the ever-present soup-strainer upon [...]
Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com is reporting, that Terry Collins job as manager of the Mets is safe for next season.
Despite the Team has had one of the worse second halfs you can ever imagined. It was obvious he wasn't getting fired.
This team is in the middle of rebuilding mode which won't end anytime soons until Mets GM Sandy Alderson says so!
The Mets did pickup his 2013...
No one had this recipe in their cookbook. The Baltimore Orioles haven’t made the playoffs, the past 14 seasons, has never operated as a ‘big market team’ payroll wise, and has been consistently been ranked in the lower ranks of organizational talent.
No, this was not the recipe for success.
We’re not going to offer up any magic spells here. No, we’re just going to break...
I usually miss a night of blogging due to logistics, vacation, beer, things like that. But I'll admit that I didn't blog about Tuesday night's game yesterday because it felt silly to wail about how horrible a baseball team while the country marked the passing of the darkest date in its history, and in New York City's history. Seemed silly. But I've said it before...
The Mets went into their minor league system and pulled a giant rabbit out of their hat with Matt Harvey. *terrible Jimmy Stewart impression* Mr. Potter, I knew a Harvey once. Back in 1955, see, and Danny Kaye asked me to sneak this guy named Harvey out of his bedroom at 2 AM. Nice fella, that Harvey. He told me a story that involved Ethel Merman and ping pong balls...
