Trading Murphy Will Usher In the Future of Second Base

In using humor to deflect a question about the Mets capacity to pay top or near top shelf salaries for three players on their roster, Sandy Alderson sent clear signals the financial situation for the New York Mets has not been resolved.

Mets Hitting Prospects Are Getting Hot

Brandon Nimmo has been tearing it up, but he’s not the only Met prospect who’s sizzling. As the weather heats up so are some of the Mets top prospects down on the farm. A few got off to slow starts this year but have recently begun to turn it up a notch, while others started out the season like a house on fire only to have since cooled. So who’s hot now? Just some of the best...

Beginning The Navigation Of Seasonal Land Mines

Let the games begin. And let the fear wash over you. See, as much as I get excited for baseball season, I also fear the inevitable mini-disasters that befall our baseball team every season. Case in point, I turn on SNY and Keith Hernandez starts talking about Curtis Granderson. They roll out some footage (which I have learned that in the business, they call it "b-roll"...

Washington Nationals 5-New York Mets 4: Key Takeaways

For the most part, today was very encouraging as a New York Mets fan. Ike Davis hit a 2-run home run today. Photo © 2012 slgckgc , Flickr Starting pitcher Rafael Montero looked  sharp, throwing 2 perfect innings. Following Montero was Jacob deGrom who was just as impressive. DeGrom also finished the day with 2 perfect innings. At the plate, the Mets were solid as well. There were...

2014 Mets Top Prospects: No. 12 Jacob deGrom, RHP

12. Jacob deGromHeight: 6’4” Weight: 185 lbs. Age: 25 Bats/Throws: Right/RightJacob deGrom, drafted in the 9th round of the 2010 draft out of Stetson University, is already 25 years old. That does not mean he cannot be considered a true prospect, however. He played shortstop in college so it probably took him longer than most to develop his tools as a pitcher. deGrom started...
