Gavin Cecchini Is Doing Better Than You Think

A year and a half ago, my first article after joining MMO was about shortstop Gavin Cecchini, saying that he wasn’t as bad as people say, I wasn’t wrong, but it didn’t exactly show until this season.

Matt Reynolds is not a household name.  He was drafted in the second round of the 2012 draft as a plus defender at third base that the Mets planned to try out at shortstop.  He was an afterthought in a year the Mets drafted Gavin Cecchini (who is currently irrelevant in Port St. Lucie) but he’s certainly proving to be something more than some of us expected. As a third baseman...

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. ...
