Mets Are More ‘Clutch’ Than The Nats, Statistically Speaking

Judging from comments on my twitter feed, I’d venture to guess that the prevailing emotion among Mets fans out there for this season is abject frustration. While there are times when we are offered glimmers of hope and slivers of consistency, they tend to be quickly snuffed out. The team itself is probably more likeable than it has been in a while, but the constant RISP and LOB...

Mets can and should solve shortstop situation in the next month

At this point in the season, it becomes more and more clear what the weaknesses of the Mets are: Shortstop and Left Field. What remains interesting is that left field has a ton of reinforcements in the minor leagues that will be MLB ready by either late next season or early 2016. Brandon Nimmo and Michael Conforto are slated to become everyday players that swing hot bats. Shortstop...

Mets Minors: Could Matt Reynolds be the future shortstop?

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...

Great First Impressions on Brandon Nimmo

He’s one of the most talked about Met prospects, a subject of heated debate ever since he was selected with the Mets’ top pick in 2011.

Mets Minors: Brandon Nimmo, others promoted

It’s that time of year.  The weather is warmer, there’s an influx of young talent from the draft and organizations begin to promote those players who made impressions in the first half of the minor league season.  Not everyone who deserves a promotion deserves it and not every promotion that is made is deserved.  Here are some notable promotions.

Two intriguing names in the Kingsport outfield

Much has been made about the dearth of hitting in the Mets minor league system under the Alderson administration, and for good reason.  It seems as if the prevailing philosophy as far as the minor league system goes, has been to build up the pitching depth, while the bats have lagged behind. The emergence over the past two years of Kevin Plawecki, Brandon Nimmo, and Matt Reynolds...
