BASEBALL IS BACK! While it may have taken a painfully long three months to get to this point, the excitement of America’s pastime returning is in full bloom.

The younger half-brother of Yoenis Cespedes is almost ready to make his U.S. debut with an upcoming skills showcase for Major League clubs in both Florida and Arizona sometime in March. Yoelkis Cespedes has been described as a “five tool outfielder with above-average tools across the board,” by MLB.com. There is intrigue by both MLB executives, scouts, and fans to see the younger Cespedes’ display the skills that have had him the talk of the international market since he defected from the island last summer. If the Mets ever needed somebody to add to their organization to remove the hurt of losing another young and projectible five-tool outfielder, then look no further. Continue reading

One of the biggest moves the Mets made last offseason was inking Jed Lowrie to a two-year $20 million contract. Lowrie was coming off an All-Star season with the Oakland Athletics, and he was expected to fill an important role around the infield at various positions due to his defensive versatility.

With the likes of Jason Vargas, Chris Flexen, Wilmer Font, Corey Oswalt, among others, the back end of the Mets rotation has yielded disapointing results. Enter Rick Porcello, who not only grew up a Mets fan, but who looks to slide into the 5th spot of the Mets starting rotation. Continue reading

The Mets Need Edwin Diaz To Rebound In 2020.

 

MLB: New York Mets at Pittsburgh Pirates

The Mets are projected by PECOTA as the National League Eastern Division Champs by Baseball Prospectus in their recent release of their 2020 MLB predictions. PECOTA has the Mets finishing with an 88-74 record, which is also listed as the second best record in the National League, only behind the Los Angeles Dodgers. In what arguably will be the toughest division in baseball, there is a sense of optimism surrounding this team after the way the Mets had finished last season. Continue reading
