Found January 28, 2012 on Mets Merized Online:
And now, the moment you’ve been anxiously awaiting! Welcome back for Part 3 of our four-part series the 2012 Mets Long Season Minor League Roster Preview. If you missed the first two chapters there is a link to them at the bottom of this page. With just over three weeks left to go before the start of spring training, where will the Mets Top Prospects be playing this year? Well several will be at AA. Let’s find out who they are. So without further adieu, it is with great pleasure that I present to you: The 2012 Opening Day Roster of the Binghamton Mets of the Eastern League. CATCHERS Kai Gronauer (C) – Kai was supposed to be the number one catcher at AA last year, and he was when the season started. Actually he was one of the top catching prospects in the organization heading into last year. Unfortunately most of his 2011 campaign was wiped out due to a severe hamstring injury suffered early in the season. He missed a couple of months with the injury and when he came back, he was u...

Franco to be inducted into the Mets Hall of Fame

The Mets Hall of Fame is about to get even larger. Last Thursday they announced plans to induct the former closer John Franco into their Hall of Fame this summer.   The move will make Franco their fifth new inductee in the last three years alone. For anyone in the dark, because you prefer football, playing Partypoker or the latest PS3 releases over watching baseball, Franco has...

Mets File Motion To Dismiss Picard Lawsuit

Michael O’Keefe and Teri Thompson of the Daily News is reporting that the Mets filed a motion on late Thursday to have the case against them tossed for lack of evidence by Picard. After U.S. District Court Judge Jed Rakoff dismissed most of the counts in Irving Picard’s $1 billion lawsuit against the owners of the Mets in September, the trustee in the Bernie Madoff liquidation...

Interesting Mets Grade “C” Prospects for 2012

I was reading this article by John Sickels over at Minor League Ball and it got me thinking about the grade “C” of the Mets who I really like for 2012 and think could have potential breakouts, or in other words some pretty deep sleepers to keep an eye on. 1. Chase Huchingson, LHP: 7-2, 1.82 ERA, 84 IP, 91/25 K/BB (Savannah) He was signed to a big time program coming out of high...

Good For John Franco, But Where’s Jesse Orosco?

I’m very happy that John Franco has become the latest member of the Mets’ Hall of Fame.  He is more than deserving of the honor, having pitched 14 seasons with the Mets and becoming the franchise’s all-time saves leader.  However, I am surprised by the fact that Franco was inducted this year, when there is another reliever who’s been waiting longer and is equally, if not...

The Perfect Way For The Mets To Stick It To The Marlins

If you’re a true Mets fan, then you know how much the Marlins have been a thorn in the team’s side since 2007.  First, Tom Glavine was able to retire only one more batter than I did in the 2007 regular season finale, completing the Mets’ collapse.  One year later, the Marlins wouldn’t get off the field after they once again eliminated the Mets (and Shea Stadium) in Game...

Tuiasosopo, Mets agree to minor-league contract

Infielder Matt Tuiasosopo, whose father and brother played in the NFL, has agreed to a minor-league contract with the New York Mets.

Ankiel Can Help Mets At A Reasonable Price

There was some talk the Mets were monitoring the outfield market, but Juan Pierre is now off the market and they will find the asking prices for Johnny Damon, Kosuke Fukudome and Raul Ibanez to rich for their blood. Vlad Guerrero is strictly a DH type, J.D. Drew is heading toward retirement and Magglio Ordonez is an injury question. All three would want more than the Mets are willing...

2012 Is A Golden Opportunity For Ike Davis And Other NL 1st Baseman

With Prince Fielder taking off for the Motor City, he becomes yet another premiere first baseman to leave the National League. Fielder now joins the likes of Albert Pujols and Adrian Gonzalez –to name a few– to leave for the AL in recent years. This leaves only Joey Votto, Lance Berkman and Ryan Howard as proven elite first baseman in the NL. Now 2012 will give this crop of young...

Mets Fans: A Nation in Crisis...Again

The New York Mets fans are a proud people. They have to be. Their team has only won two World Series titles in 50 years and they only have one player inducted into the baseball Hall of Fame. They don't have as much to hold on to as fans of other franchises. As a Mets fan I can completely understand this logic; Be proud of what you have.They have had a long history of bad moments...
