Did Gavin Cecchini really earn a mid-year promotion?

The full-season leagues have reached the halfway point in their seasons, the typical point at which clubs deliver a mid-year promotion. The Mets bumped up at least 13 players, which seems like a high number but that’s nothing more than a guess. It could easily be that they promoted 20 guys this time last year. Regardless, of the 13, seven were hitters and six were pitchers. ...

A day in Brooklyn: Gavin Cecchini does some things very right

“I should really go to a Cyclones game.” I’ve been saying this for years, but on Thursday 6/20/2013, I finally did.  First of all, let me tell you that MCU park is a nice park to watch a game.  It was clean, the sight lines were good and atmosphere (with the rides of Coney Island moving in the background) is pretty awesome.  I decided to make the trip on Irish Heritage night...
