Mets Card of the Week: 1980 Pete Falcone

1980 TOPPS PETE FALCONE The Mets record book is one part strict classicism and two parts dark magic. Most of the canonical season and career records are held by your Seavers and Strawberries and such. But many of the more obscure and occasional marks belong to short timers and journeymen. Take, for example, the team record for most consecutive strikeouts to start a game. Just this...

Is there any reason to prefer Wilmer Flores to Jordany Valdespin?

This offseason the Mets were unwilling to pay the price to bring a new shortstop into town. Regardless of whether that was a defensible decision, the Mets followed up with the solution of moving Wilmer Flores back to shortstop, even though they moved him off the position following the 2011 season. Not once did the club indicate they thought the 2011 decision was a mistake; rather...

Jordany Valdespin continues to be a team-first player

Jordany Valdespin is not exactly the most user-friendly guy around. Last May he angered the Pirates by showboating after hitting a home run . . . with his team down 7-1. Last summer he threw a temper tantrum after learning he was being demoted to Triple-A Las Vegas. After going down to Vegas he helped start a benches-clearing brawl. Long before all of that he was said to be unpopular...

Jordany Valdespin gained a minor cult like following after he had some success during the 2012 season. I got to see Valdespin for a couple spring trainings before he made his MLB debut. I also watched him play a couple seasons in AA Binghamton. A line drive hitter with some speed, he never seemed like he could play SS at the MLB level. But he could hit. If you have followed...

Which Mets Non-Tender Will Be Missed The Most?

The Mets cut five players from their 40-Man Roster yesterday as they made the decision to non-tender and part ways with Scott Atchison, Omar Quintanilla, Jordany Valdespin, Jeremy Hefner and Justin Turner. The decisions to cut ties with Hefner and Turner were the ones that stood out the most for me. As Mike Kerwick described it, Hefner was enjoying the season of his life in 2013...

Mets Non-Tender Valdespin; A Good Move

What should have been done months ago finally occurred today when the New York Mets non-tendered the moody and limited-talented outfielder Jordany Valdespin, making him a free agent. If some team is stupid enough to sign Valdespin and he becomes a star, then so be it because he never was going to do anything with the Mets. VALDESPIN: Gone. Valdespin supposedly had a flair for the...

What The Future Holds For Jordany Valdespin

  Looking back on the season, there are a few things that stood out to me about how it all turned out, but the one hope that I had was that Jordany Valdespin, better known to Mets fans as JV1, was going to turn into a very good ball player and mainly because his speed reminded me a lot of Jose Reyes.  Pure speed running around the bases; turning singles into doubles, doubles into...

One Of The Strangest Years A Professional Athlete Can Have

A couple mornings ago I received a slew of text messages in rapid succession. They were all about the tweet released by FOX’s Ken Rosenthal and Jordany Valdespin’s 50-game suspension. At first, I felt bad. My dark horse in 2013 added a new chapter entitled “PEDs” into the comedic novella he’s called a career. The one I called El Dramático for his propensity to pimp long...
