The Interesting Story Of Xorge Carillo

He’s often been slotted as a back-up, so he’s not a household name or a prospect who even registers on many New York Met fans’ radar screens.  Yet, the more you know about him, the more you might think the Mets might have something special in catcher, Xorge Carrillo. Carrillo split time behind the plate at Arizona State in 2010 and 2011 with Austin Barnes.    Barnes, considered...

D’Arnaud Could Be The Mets’ Most Tradeable Asset

It’s a fact of life not awfully appealing to Met fans. In baseball, as with most things in life, in order to actualize the goals and successes you aspire, you’re going to have to give something up. That’s often a trademark of a professional athlete, musical performer, business executive, or anyone who acquires the skills that place them in the top tier of their profession...
