The New York Mets kept the tradition of Opening Day success alive today with a 1-0 victory over the Atlanta Braves in the first of many games inside an empty stadium. Continue reading
With Opening Day for the Mets less than a mere 48 hours away my excitement, I’m sure like most of you, is through the roof! While this season is going to look very different in multiple ways from previous seasons, at the end of the day it’s still the game we love and we are happy to have back. With that being said, here are five bold predictions I’m forecasting for the Mets 2020 abbreviated season. Continue reading
The New York Mets played a pair of exhibition games against the New York Yankees over the weekend as both teams ramp up for Opening Day this week. While I would’ve loved to see the Mets at least play one more exhibition game prior to Friday, we’ll settle for two and send our undivided attention to Friday’s afternoon opener against the Atlanta Braves. But first I wanted to point out a few takeaways from each game this weekend that I thought needed attention. Continue reading
The Cuban Ohtani? There is LOTS of intrigue surrounding 21-year old Cuban prospect Oscar Colas. Continue reading
Major League Baseball released the New York Mets 2020 regular schedule on Monday evening and while the schedule may be shorter it doesnt mean it is any easier. In the Mets 60-game regular season slate, they will do battle with both the National League East and the American League East. In total the Mets will face the NL East for 40 games and the AL East for 20 games. Continue reading
With the Mets reporting to Spring Training 2.0, the reality of baseball commencing is starting to set in. One of the obvious storylines surrounding the team in regards to the 2020 campaign is how the Mets rotation will fare without Noah Syndergaard this season. Continue reading
For the most part the Mets starting lineup, starting rotation, and most of the bullpen is set, barring any sort of injury during Spring Training 2.0. However there are still a couple of bench spots that could be up for grabs, as well as a couple of potential back end spots in the bullpen avaliable for Opening Day. I’m also under the assumption that the Mets will put a few of their top prospects on their taxi squad in order to avoid stunting any development due to no Minor League baseball occuring this season, as well as having them avaliable in case a need arises due to injury during this abbreviated season. Let’s take a look at a few of the top prospects who may make it up to the Major Leagues at some point during this 2020 campaign.
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. With Spring Training 2.0 slated to begin July 1st, and the 60 game regular season beginning on July 23-24, I thought it would be a great time to predict the Mets 30-man Opening Day roster, and potential options for their taxi squad.
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
For the most part over the past couple of seasons, the Mets have struggled to get consistent results from the 5th spot in their starting rotation. 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
