Darrell Ceciliani’s emergence is a major key this season

Darrell Ceciliani is becoming the fourth outfielder

The New York Mets have had many concerns throughout the 2015 season, starting with injuries to key players, an inexperienced shortstop, and a struggling offense. The starting rotation has overcome Zack Wheeler’s injury nicely, and the bullpen has not been bad, although they struggled yesterday when Jeurys Familia was unavailable. Wilmer Flores has been solid at shortstop, and the...

Fear And Loathing In The Eastern League

Darrell Ceciliani. CF No, I didn’t fall into a hole on my way back from the B-Mets series in New Britain last weekend. Although driving all those miles just to see them drop a three game series to a second division club, was a tad deflating. Friday night – a 4-0 loss with not much happening for the Mets. Saturday night – a heart-breaking 3-2 loss where the winning run scored...
