Comparing Mets and 51s numbers with 100 PA at each level

To the chagrin of many, the Mets re-upped their Player Development Contract with Las Vegas, ensuring that their Triple-A team would remain in the Pacific Coast League city 2,524 miles away.

The meaning of Wilmer Flores

It feels like Wilmer Flores has been a Met forever. He was signed seven years ago at the age of 16 and has been much ballyhooed as the Mets best offensive prospect. He has been ranked as a top 100 prospect in all of baseball on multiple occasions and famously destroyed Triple-A over the last two seasons (162 games, 28 home runs, 143 RBI and a 903 OPS). His major league career has...

Flores Has Been Flourishing On Defense And At The Plate

One thing that has gone widely unreported since mid-August has been the play of shortstop Wilmer Flores who is growing more comfortable at the position with the increased and regular playing time.
